Unbecoming

Charlotte Guest is a Victorian housewife and the mother of seven.  Much to her husband’s dismay, she also aspires to be the first to translate into English an ancient collection of Welsh myths called the Mabinogion.  As she translates, she encounters the story of a woman conjured from flowers – a woman forced to become a wife, who is then metamorphosed into an owl as punishment for her infidelity.  In translating her story, Charlotte must confront the feminine role that she both endures and perpetuates.
