This study uses Mikhail Bakhtin's concept of the chronotope to examine the house in Harriet Jacob's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (1861) , Elizabeth Stoddard's The Morgesons (1862) , Octavia Butler's Kindred (1979) and Marilyn Robinson's Housekeeping (1980). All four texts were written by American women and have female narrator-protagonists. ; Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis Studia Anglistica Upsaliensia; Vol. 108; 340 pages
