Louise: An Emotional Binge Eater - In Andre Dubus’ The Fat Girl, Louise is a young adolescent with detrimental eating habits and broken self-esteem. Her lack of self-confidence stems from her atrocious emotional habitat. Louise receives constant criticism from her mother regarding her weight. Her mother states “If you are fat the boys won’t like you.” That kind of ridicule being said by a mother to her 9 year old daughter creates an atmosphere of self-hatred and self-loathing. It is not only her familial environment that contributes so greatly to Louise’s destructive behavior....   [tags: Andre Dubus' The Fat Girl, analaysis]

Terra-Cotta Girl - Terra Cotta Girl The poem has clear, wide-open drama while managing ambiguity and open-endedness. A sort of modern local color piece tinted with Southern elements, it nevertheless makes its characters real and sympathetic, treats important themes that are both topical and general, and offers an apt objective relationship with universal implications. Technically a lyric, the poem filled with narrative and drama: an off-the-farm college girl, a Southerner, and perhaps a Georgian like Sellers herself, has fallen in love with a “quiet girl down the hall” (9)....   [tags: essays research papers] 943 words

Through this depiction of conventional topics, the authors are able to convey that when people are driven by the greed for power, they will always be defeated by those driven by honorable means....   [tags: Goose Girl, Water for Elephants, The Crucible]

Compare and Contrast of "The Goose Girl" by the Grimm Brothers and "The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe - Upon reading both short stories of Edgar Allan Poe’s “A Tell- Tale Heart” and the Grimm Brothers “The Goose Girl” one can automatically see some resemblance and diversity between the two. For example both the chambermaid and the unnamed narrator use violence and manipulation to get what they both desire the most, murder is involved in both stories, and they don’t feel much remorse of what they do and it makes them happy. While both stories have correlations they also have a sense of their own unique differences such as in the Goose Girl, the chambermaid is greedy, jealous, condemned the original princess to take her place as a chambermaid and the princess and original chambermaid never got a...   [tags: Murder, Remorse]

Stirring up the North to See the Horrors of Slavery: Harriet Jacobs’s Narrative "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" - Educating the North of the horrors of slavery through the use of literature was one strategy that led to the questioning, and ultimately, the abolition of slavery.

By acknowledging that not all slaveholders were inhumane, explaining the horrific abuse and punishments slaves endured, and comparing the manner in which whites and slaves spent their holidays, Jacobs’s narrative serves its purpose of arousing Northern women to take notice of the appalling conditions two millio...   [tags: Harriet Jacobs, Incidents in the Life of a Slave G] 1088 words

Albeit the law can nullify legislation that entails aspects of oppression such as discrimination, the law can also permit, at times, for such things to exist. A legal system that is implemented and enforced within a society eventually becomes directly fused with the citizens and even life itself.

Gender preference is a major problem that is raised from different causes (traditions, socioeconomics) and has deep psychological effects on one's life.
