Choose and nominate literary heroines!

Last week I asked if anyone had nominations for which characters should be in the possible ‘Which 19th-century Literary Heroine Are You Most Like?’ quiz. Well, no one made any nominations, so I selected some.

In this poll, please choose up to 8 characters you would like to see in the quiz. If there is anyone I did not mention but you want me to include, please comment & tell me who, and I’ll count that as a vote. (So if someone already mentioned who you were thinking of, you should comment too, to give that character another vote.)

Who do you think should be included in the quiz? (Choose up to 8)
Amy Dorrit (Little Dorrit, by Charles Dickens)
Anne Elliot (Persuasion, by Jane Austen)
Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables, etc. by L. M. Montgomery)
Elinor Dashwood (Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen)
Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen)
Emma Woodhouse (Emma, by Jane Austen)
Esther Summerson (Bleak House, by Charles Dickens)
Fanny Price (Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen)
Jane Eyre (by Charlotte Bronte)
Jo March (Little Women by Louisa May Alcott)
Margaret Hale (North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell)
Marianne Dashwood (Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen)
Molly Gibson (Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell) free polls

3-28-11: I forgot Catherine Morland! If you would like to vote for her, please choose 'yes'.
Should Catherine Morland be in the quiz?
No free polls

As for nominations, remember that the book doesn’t have to have been written in the 1800s, just as long as that’s when the story is set. And it should probably be the main character of the book.

AND speaking of heroines, the fourth round (second-to-last) of the tournament is going on at Elegance of Fashion!
