dc.description.abstractBritish contemporary novelists Penelope Lively and Angela Carter are well known for their contribution to narrative experimentation through which they challenged established cultural discourses in relation to gender and class. This article will focus on Lively's Moon Tiger and Carter's Wise Children with the main aim of analyzing how the fictional narratives of two older female protagonists who have lived throughout the twentieth century contribute to the demythologizing of limiting stereotypes and beliefs attached to female aging and, as an extension, old age. In this sense, the playful and subjective nature of the narrative and the temporal disruptions employed by the authors highlight the constructed pathos of a life divided by stages that follow a number of cultural constructs that are limiting and, ultimately, distant from human nature.
