In The French Lieutenant's Woman, do you find Sarah's characterization to be essentially realistic, or is she more myth than woman? Sarah has a difficult time in the novel, and according to critic Pamela Cooper, part of Sarah's problems derive from a mythologizing male narrator, who is developing an "image of the idealized feminine, even as [he] seeks to expose as false the sexual idealization of the Victorian."
