This conclusion looks forward into the mid-twentieth-century works of Kate O’Brien in order to demonstrate the ongoing significance of Paris in Irish women’s novels. In three different bildungsromane, her protagonists experience different Parisian spaces. This analysis demonstrates that those spaces ultimately determine the type of Bildung available to those characters.
