Painting of: French School 19th-century Woman holding an umbrella

This picture shows a woman who is alone and even might be in the shade reading, but still has her parasol. This picture reminded me of the article on “Daisy Miller: Cowboy Feminist” by Lisa Johnson, where she states “the parasol is intended by society to create a pocket of inside space for women outside” (11).

This picture reminded me of a flirtatious woman, which is what Daisy is thought of by many in the novel.

Iola Leroy

Dr. Gresham's Proposal

This depicts Dr. Gresham's marriage proposal and the impact it would have on Iola Leroy's life if she were to hide her heritage. -Sarah B-

Iola and Tom

This photo depicts a Civil War nurse tending to a wounded soldier. I like to think the sketch depicts the tender scene between Iola and Tom, when she kisses him goodbye, eliciting confusion and disgust in Dr. Gresham -Sarah B-

Iola Leroy and Passing For White

This quote on white privilege was taken from the book, published in 1892, and yet, I cannot help but apply it to contemporary American society in 2018...and how it still remains true, in some areas. I wonder what choices Iola would make if she were living in our world- would she face less angst if she married a colored, or even a white husband?  -Sarah B-
