Abstract or Summary
  • In this thesis, I examine the ways in which the television series Twin Peaks represents the feminine through a textual analysis of the character Audrey Home. Using reader-response theory, I seek to show that while the series conforms to patriarchal media conventions such as the male gaze and narrative stereotypes such as the fairy tale princess, there also exists within the text resistance to these normative conventions, which provides pleasure for a feminist audience. The concept of the ideological problematic, in which a text can be shown to hold multiple and contradictory meanings, is applied to a close textual analysis of the character Audrey Home.
