Ellen Glasgow, an American woman novelist, is well known for her novels on the South. Her strong intellect led her to a conscious channeling of her creative energies towards the making of a substantial body of fiction. Many of Glasgow’s novels examine life and values in the State of Virginia of her time. Virginia is one of her famous novels where she has successfully depicted the story of self-emancipation of a young woman instructed both at home and in a proper finishing school about her behavior in a male dominated society. The present paper presents a critical survey of Virginia with its main focus on the portrayal of women characters and their miserable status in the society.
