Ballaster’s Critical Analysis of the Writing of Eliza Haywood - Ballaster’s Critical Analysis of the Writing of Eliza Haywood In "Preparatives to Love: Seduction as Fiction in the Works of Eliza Haywood", Ros Ballaster critically examines the active role that seduction plays in the passionate lives of the heroines presented in the writing of "the undisputed Queen of Romance," Eliza Haywood. Ros Ballaster's primary argument refers to Eliza Haywood's "creation of a specifically feminine authorial persona with a direct address to female readers, which is seen both as a form of scandalous prostitution and a seduction of other women." (53) Ballaster asserts that, though her work undergoes a well-defined stylistic change, related to the moral perspective of her career after 1740, "throughout her work there is a remarkable consistency in her presentation of sexual desire and in her view of fiction's role in the stimulation or repression of sexual passion in female readers." (55) Regardless of the fact that, during the 18th Century, it is deemed incredibly inappropriate, and even unthinkable for women to experience and express feelings of sexual desire, Eliza Haywood is in support of the necessity and inevitability of women's feelings of sexual passion and gratification, including in her fiction accounts of women who not only verbally and actively express, but triumph in those feelings of passion....   [tags: Literary cristicism] 728 words

Critical Analysis of Theme for English B - When I first read Langston Hughes' poem "Theme for English B", I did not particularly like it.

He also gives us insight into the thoughts and emotions of the main character, the young "colored" student, and ends the piece with several thought provoking passages. In the first stanza we find the student, who is also the narrator, having gotten his homework assignment to write a paper, is returning home to Harlem....   [tags: American Literature Langston Hughes] 628 words
