Postfeminism in Jane Campion’s Bright Star

English (Extension 1)

24 Pages Essays / Projects Year: Pre-2018

Jane Campion’s 2009 Bright Star portrays the three-year love affair between John Keats and Fanny Brawne. Inspired by Keats’s love letters and Andrew Motion’s Keats, Bright Star is a (re)vision of the sources that guided Campion in her reconstruction of the love affair. However, Campion’s adaptation of Keats’s letters and Motion’s biography of Keats, though historically accurate, is basically independent in its post-feminist construction of Fanny. Whereas the texts adopt a masculine perception of Fanny, Bright Star conveys Fanny’s perspective, her imagination and desires. This article thus considers how Campion de-codifies masculine representations of Fanny to foreground Fanny’s experience, desire, and subjectivity. The article further examines the ways in which Campion appropriates the source texts, working with and against its claims, to channel her own post-feminist views regarding her female character.
