Summary
The story of the father and the daughter in literature has often left the daughter with few options: a life with the father, marriage according to his wishes, death or ostracism as punishments for socially unacceptable behavior. Examples of this "master plot of the father-daughter story" are traced in the Bible, mythical stories, fairy tales, Freudian theories, and in King Lear. In the feminist novels under discussion, daughter-narrators break the taboos surrounding their fathers. They consciously foreground the culturally protected master plot and transcend it with alternate endings
