The House on Mango Street and the Style of Sandra Cisneros - The House on Mango Street and the Style of Sandra Cisneros Clearly, Sandra Cisneros' writing style is one representative of a minority voice. Her amazing style allows her readers to take an active part in the minority experience. For this reason, I believe Cisneros has had a lot of influence and success in the status of minority writers, especially in the canon of what is read and taught in schools today. But, more than anything, Cisneros has shown that liberation can come through creativity and literature, and not just through geographical excursion....   [tags: House Mango Street]

Essay on Lies and Self-realization in A Doll's House - Lies and Self-realization in A Doll's House   In Ibsen's play,  A Doll's House,  the characters willingly exist in a situation of untruth or inadequate truth that conceals conflict.  Nora's independent nature is in contradiction to the tyrannical authority of Torvald.  This conflict is concealed by the way they both hide their true selves from society, each other, and ultimately themselves.  Just like Nora and Torvald, every character in this play is trapped in a situation of untruth. "A Doll's House", can be misinterpreted as simply an attack on the religious values of Ibsen's society.  While this is certainly an important aspect of the play, it is not, however, Ibsen's main point.  "A...   [tags: Dolls House essays]

The Somber and Dark Tone of The Fall of the House of Usher - The Somber and Dark Tone of The Fall of the House of Usher The work of Edgar Allan Poe is notoriously morbid and terror-provoking. Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher”, with its melancholically eerie tone, is undoubtedly a prime example of such writing. Much effort within the literary world has been devoted to the analysis and critique of Poe’s compositions. Among those to study and analyze Poe’s work is J.O. Bailey. Bailey’s argument concerning Poe’s underlying objective is valid and presented effectively in the article entitled “What Happens in ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’”; but this short story can rationally be interpreted in alternative ways, thus suggesting Poe intends the pie...   [tags: Fall House Usher Essays]

Unequaled Realism in Margaret Fleming - James Herne's Margaret Fleming is surprisingly bold and realistic in regard to the time period in which it was written. The subject of infidelity is dealt with candidly, and other aspects, such as the breast-feeding of an infant, are depicted in a true-to-life form. The content, then, seems quite modern for the play's 1890 date. Yet, Herne is the successor of a playwright like Henrik Ibsen rather than Bronson Howard or, even, Augustin Daly. As Watt and Richardson note, Margaret Fleming is "unequaled in realism by any other known American drama of its century" (236, emphasis mine)....   [tags: Biography Biographies Essays] 737 words

Feminist Criticism of Henrik Isben's A Doll's House - Through the eyes of society in the late 1800s, women were seen only as incompetent pretty little nothings. Keeping an eyeful watch on the house, starting their pre-destined act of motherhood, and becoming followers on the narrow path behind their husbands were the duties of a woman. In Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, he criticizes the sexist ways women were exploited in 1879, during a time known as The Victorian Era.

The first hint came when Nora told Kristina that Torvald had given up his government post because there was no prospect of advancement.
