The Victorian Era was a period in England that formally followed the reign of Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901; however, the era is not so rigidly set. 1960s America experienced similar female oppressions. This analysis of Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar and Adrienne Rich's "Aunt Jennifer's Tigers" explores the similarities between the two eras and highlights the detrimental effects of a patriarchal culture.
