Feminist Thoughts Revealed in Rose-Colored Teacups

Jingrui HUI


A.S.Byatt’s famous story Rose-Colored Teacups presents a simple story between mother and daughter. Young fashionable daughter broke her mother’s old sewing machine left by her own mother. Before bursting into a fury, mother remembers a similar story that happened to her at her daughter’s age. When she broke some rose-colored teacups sent by her mother’s friends, her mother’s responses were very furious. This paper aims to give an in-depth analysis of the feminist thoughts revealed in the story.
