The French Lieutenant's Woman is a 1969 postmodern historical fiction novel by John Fowles. It was his third published novel, after The Collector (1963) and The Magus (1965). The novel explores the fraught relationship of gentleman and amateur naturalist Charles Smithson and Sarah Woodruff, the former governess and independent woman with whom he falls in love. The novel builds on Fowles' authority in Victorian literature, both following and critiquing many of the conventions of period novels. Of the woman who stared, Charles noted, there was no sign. But he did not give her-or the Cobb-a second thought and set out, with a quick and elastic step very different from his usual languid town stroll, along the beach under Ware Cleeves for his destination. He would have made you smile, for he was carefully equipped for his role.
The white scuts of three or four rabbits explained why the turf was so short. Charles stood in the sunlight. Then he moved forward to the edge of the plateau. And there, below him, he saw a figure. For one terrible moment he thought he had stumbled on a corpse. But it was a woman asleep.

But he would have been at all at sea with the motionless woman standing at the end of the mole clad all in black.
