dc.description.abstractIn The History of Sexuality: An Introduction, Michel Foucault presents several theories concerning power, subjectivity, and truth. This thesis considers these theories in relation to Colleen McCullough’s The Thorn Birds, a chick lit novel written in 1977. Examples from McCullough’s text show how Foucault’s theories apply to modem literature. A discussion of the female reader and her interaction with the chick lit text also shows how Foucault’s theories can be applied in modem society.
