Overview

A Rebellious Heroine by John Kendrick Bangs begins with the description of Stuart Harley, the author of many novels. Harley considered himself a realist. Harley believed that the mission of a novelist is not to amuse merely; his work is that of an historian, and he should be quite as careful to write truthfully as is the historian. How is the future to know what manner of lives we nineteenth century people have lived unless our novelists tell the truth?

The story gently prepares the readers for the ensuing events where the rebellious heroine is introduced to them. The allusions to the past writers add a flavour to the context and make the writing more emphatic and impressive.
