Individualism and Leadership in Muriel Spark's The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Lina Sierra Ayala

Abstract

This article tries to show how Muriel Spark studies the dichotomy of individualism and leadership in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Jean Brodie poses as a daringly unconventional and individualistic woman but she cannot free herself from the brooding weight of Calvinism that has oppressed her childhood.
