Do you know a book in which the woman is clearly dominant in the relationship?

Maybe even to the extent that the man is oppressed? So this all looks from the outside rather than a dysfunctional relationship?

Clearly, "Silent" by Max Frisch, however, there is the problem that the woman is shown to be very one-dimensional (was also his first novel), so in general has absolutely no single positive character trait (at least I can not see any). But dominant, narcissistic and mentally cruel it is before, and the man suffers from it. To be a credible character, but perhaps they would have one or the other human train have my opinion, but maybe I would read it today again otherwise ... Determined since August Strindberg wrote a lot, but what is not concrete to me spontaneously ...

The fist book that comes to mind is Great Expectations. It's been years since I read the book but the movie I remember a lot better.

I just thought of another. East of Eden. It was one of my favorite books I did a report in school about it.
