Abstract
Historically, children’s literature featuring abandoned boys focuses on separation from the maternal and the development of aggressive masculinity, seen as necessary for sociocultural acceptance and advancement. Using a feminist perspective, this thesis examines several transatlantic novels and argues that the boy protagonists actually exhibit maternal traits, in contrast to aggressive masculinity. As a result, these novels display a necessary female temperance over masculinity, which brings about success to the male orphan. In this way, mothers circumvent their socially prescribed secondary status to bring their true influence into the world. However, the sacrifice of mothers highlights both the problem of female sacrifice for male children and a cultural tempering of aggressive masculinity.
