Analysis of Jacob Have I Loved - Louise, the protagonist of Katherine Patterson’s Jacob Have I Loved, infuriates me.  She fights against ghosts of what she wishes to be and against what she really is, kicking and screaming all the way.  I don’t debate that she struggles with good reason -- certainly the neglect from her family, whether perceived or real, and the expectations her culture (I really want to say environment here) has placed on her gender role have contributed to her plight -- but her great inner strength and insight belies her inability to overcome or at least circumvent those obstacles.  To me, she is a rebel with the sole cause of declaring her independence from her expected gender role.  And, in that, I find...   [tags: Jacob Have I Loved] 1888 words

Motherhood in Harriet Jacob's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl - Motherhood, in its simplest definition is the state of being a mother; however, it isn't as clear cut and emotionless as the definition implies.
