Use of Foreshadowing in Anne Radcliffe's The Italian - Use of Foreshadowing in The Italian Anne Radcliffe incorporates many aspects of the Gothic into her novel, The Italian. In this book, one can find an exciting exploration of an exotic culture, a history of family secrets, subtle hints at supernatural forces at work, and Gothic architecture in both ruins and in the Inquisition prison. However, perhaps the most prominent feature of the Gothic used in this novel is the element of suspense. Radcliffe creates suspense in The Italian through a chain of foreshadowed events that lure the reader further and further into the story....   [tags: Anne Radcliffe The Italian] 921 words

Morality and Egos in Radcliffe's The Italian - Morality and Egos in The Italian      The gothic tradition loves to play with the morality of a character and this explains one's egotistical tendencies.  In Radcliffe's Italian, no matter which side of the morality tree a character stands on, Satan has slipped a little pride in everyone's apple.  The role of doubles begins before Poe popularizes it.  Radcliffe works hard to create evil twins and/or corresponding halves to some of the characters in order to demonstrate the power of pride.  The gender roles of both male and female characters in The Italian do not always correlate to an archetype.  Radcliffe bends not only the gender rules, but also the stature expectations of the reader to...   [tags: Italian Essays]

Radcliffe and Wordsworth: Nature, Travel, and Memory - Radcliffe and Wordsworth: Nature, Travel, and Memory In preparation for my presentation on the character of M.

One passage which especially attracted my attention, but which ultimately fell outside the coverage of our group's presentation, is Radcliffe's account of St. Aubert's feelings about the "small estate in Gascony" (Radcliffe 6) where he and his family lived: To this spot he had been attached from his infancy....   [tags: Traveling Wordsworth Radcliffe Essays Papers]

Anne Brandstreet and Female Identity - There are not many “major” female writers in American Literature, and writing, traditionally, has always been viewed as a masculine activity. It is therefore very interesting, and even ironic, that the first author published in the newly established Puritan society on the American soil, Anne Bradstreet, was a female. Indeed, Bradstreet's poems are filled with female presence. However, I also sense that Bradstreet’s feminism is held in check by her Puritan values, and there is a conflict created throughout her writing between this society of Puritan patriarchy that she lived in and her identity as a female....   [tags: Anne Brandstreet Poems Poetry] 531 words

The Treatment of the Lower Class in Radcliffe's The Mysteries of Udolpho - Elizabeth Bohls, in her study Women Travel Writers and the Language of Aesthetics, 1716-1818, argues that aesthetic theories of the eighteenth century served to support the social and political hierarchy of the time. The observer, the viewing subject - the educated, wealthy male - is defined by what is constructed as opposite and antithetical to him - the labouring class, the female, and the non-European. The language of aesthetics thus also becomes the language of social exclusion. She notes "the structuring dualisms of eighteenth-century society: polite/vulgar, man/woman, civilized/savage" (67); she continues that the "second terms are subordinated as the foils against which the aesthetic...   [tags: The Mysteries of Udolpho] 1601 words

Certainly, in the early American, Puritan colonies, this work would have been seen as a wife’s duty as well as a lovely gesture. Today, however, it might well be seen as the babblings of a dependant wife. This was my reaction to the poem when I first read it.

However, from the 1820s onwards the economy rapidly expanded as a consequence of the industrial revolution and many men started to work away from home in industrial and commercial firms, leaving their wives at home to carry out the dom...   [tags: Anne of Green Gables, Little Women]

Biography of Anne Hutchinson - Anne Hutchinson has long been seen as a strong religious dissenter who paved the way for religious freedom in the strictly Puritan environment of New England. Another interpretation of the controversy surrounding Anne Hutchinson asserts that she was simply a loving wife and mother whose charisma and personal ideas were misconstrued to be a radical religious movement. Since this alleged religious movement was led by a woman, it was quickly dealt with by the Puritan fathers as a real threat. Whatever her motives, she was clearly a great leader in the cause of religious toleration in America and the advancement of women in society....   [tags: Anne Hutchinson Religious Dissenter Essays] 3755 words

Appearance Versus Reality in Katharine Anne Porter's He - Appearance Versus Reality in Katharine Anne Porter's He So many memories came to my mind while reading this story. I grew up in a family (or at least one side of that family) who always cared and worried about what other people thought. Most obviously, the short story, "He," by Katharine Anne Porter is about appearance vs. reality and living with a disabled child. But I also believe the story is about life, the hardships of life, poverty, the innocence of children, the trust children put into their parents, the gossip of small towns, the resentment and bitterness of the hardships of life, being a mother, rural life, denial, guilt, and compassion....   [tags: Katharine Anne Porter He Essays]

Anne Bradstreet's Poem - Anne Bradstreet's Poem "To my Dear and Loving Husband" Anne Bradstreet?s poem, ?To my Dear and Loving Husband. presents a beautiful love theme. "Of ever two were one, then surely we" (1). This quotation is important because Bradstreet is pointing out that she does not feel as though she is one individual person. And one of the first questions that come to my mind is if Bradstreet was trying to make a point for all wives to be that way or she felt insecure about her own self. The poem itself portrays a loving wife, but the fact is she sounds like she is afraid to be alone, that her husband is the one who makes her complete, in another words, it makes her be a full person....   [tags: Dear Loving Husband Anne Bradstreet Essays]
