The Sexual Battle in Browning’s Aurora Leigh - The Sexual Battle in Browning’s Aurora Leigh       Women Beware Women, Beware Your Rivals, and most of all, Women Beware Sexual Jealousy all apply equally well to Aurora Leigh, but Victorian society was not ready for such honesty, so these themes all had to be encoded in Elizabeth Barret Browning's epic novel-poem.

Compare Aurora Leigh and Neutral Tones - Compare Aurora Leigh and Neutral Tones      The frenzied growth and progress of the Victorian Era had worked itself into a ferment at the birth of the Modern Age. Whereas the Victorian authors and poets seemed to attempt to hold onto themes of the Romantics, emulation of the Classical Age and the application of epic format, the Modernists used more conversational language, but similarly to Romantics, turned to introspection as an inspirational source. However, most striking, is the change of mood of the literature from that of optimism and expansion of the 19th century, to that of early 20th century's "pessimism, sadness, and gravity" (Agatucci, 2001)....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Metacognition: A Modern Perspective on Victorian Womens’ Education as shown in Aurora Leigh - The history of women’s education is long and winding, and it is nearly impossible to overstate the evolution that has taken place in that time.

In that setting, it comes as a pleasant surprise that all literature from the time shows support for the era’s education methods....   [tags: british poet, victorian era, analysis]
