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

A Critical Review of Sociologists - ‘Study study finds cruddy duds’ (Sheil, 2003: 22) – A Critical Review of Sociologists. This is a humorous ‘out cry’ of an article that comically undermines and satirises the work of sociologists by reducing them to a group of ‘willy-nilly’ grant gathering academics that produce nothing more than unreadable reports that are nevertheless “mind numbingly uninformative” (ibid). It is well known by all Australians that it is the continuous research (funded by the government, universities and so forth) all across Australia, that provides the vital statistics and information toward the planning and development for the future, yet, Sheil (2003) mocks this need for ongoing exploration of society by playing on its key purpose: “[It has been] established that no further analysis of Australian society is called for…everything we need to know about Australian attitudes to violence on television, gay marriages and dedicated cycling lanes is already known and that further investigation would be both redundant and infuriating” Thus, successfully using comedic irony and the juxtaposition of key, controversial aspects of current day society (such as gay marriage) with an issue as mundane and somewhat less significant as ‘dedicated cycling lanes’ to demean the research itself....   [tags: essays research papers] 694 words
