Some critics, and notably, Elaine Showalter points out that Ophelia has become the symbol of the distraught and hysterical woman in modern culture. Atwood's Lady Oracle is a feminist novel even only for the fact that its central theme is about the formation of gender identity. Joan writes and is written about; if Atwood writes about Joan's childhood experiences, about her interaction with male partners and other woman, then Joan writes about the precariousness of feminine subjectivity in a male-dominated world thanks to her character, Charlotte. All in all, I would like to conclude in saying that both literary works can be analyzed, interpreted and argued about from many perspectives; Hamlet, because of the play's dramatic structure and depth of characterization, and Lady Oralce, because of the complexity of the main character and the novel's form novelty.
As per his foster mother's deathwish, Poe reconciled with his foster father, who coordinated an appointment for him to the United States Military Academy at West Point. His time at West Point was ill-fated, however, as Poe supposedly deliberately disobeyed orders and was dismissed. After that, his foster father repudiated him until his death in March 27, 1834. Poe next moved to Baltimore, Maryland with his widowed aunt, Maria Clemm, and her daughter, Virginia. Poe used fiction writing as a means of supporting himself, and with in December 1835, Poe began editing the Southern Literary Messenger for Thomas W. White in Richmond.
As Diane York Blaine aptly observes: “The title informs us that this is her story.”2 It is very surprising, then, that Addie, the center of the novel, was so slighted by the lack of criticism regarding her from the first half of the century. The reason for this is self-reflexively connected to Addie’s dilemma in the book. Just as Addie is unable to define herself through anything but words that represent the oppressive patriarchal society to which she is opposed, early criticism only evaluated her in these terms, focusing less on Addie’s first person narrative, and more on what other characters in the novel (the men) had to say about her. However, the changing social and political tides of the 1960’s and 1970’s gave rise to feminist criticism, which was at least partially able to break out of the patriarchal infrastructure, and evaluate her under a new set of values, giving new insight into her character, and thus, to the novel as a whole. There is a conspicuous lack of early criticism regarding Addi... ... middle of paper ... ...(Beyond) Sexual Difference (Knoxville: University of Tennessee Press) 1990, p. 154.
Freed after the American Civil War, he went with his mother to Malden, W. Va., to join Washington Ferguson, whom she had married during the war. At about age 16 Booker set out for Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, which had been established by the chief of the Freedmen's Bureau to educate former slaves. He walked much of the way, working to earn the fare to complete the long, dusty journey to Virginia. For his admission test he repeatedly swept and dusted a classroom, and he was able to earn his board by working as a janitor. After graduation three years later he taught in Malden and at Hampton.
In the articles on Science, we certainly were able to see several different metaphors used for various reasons. Particularly in the article, "The Body at War: Media Views of the Immune System" by Emily Martin we saw Martin draw a unique parallel between our bodies, (predominantly our immune systems), and larger issues concerning race, class and gender. This, like many metaphorical comparisons, might seem like an unlikely possibility for a connection, but once she begins to explain why she feels that the media's representation of our immune system is so closely related to other social issues we are forced to take a second look. The way in which Martin makes her comparisons, with her unique word choice and style, comes across as quite a powerful and convincing theory. Mary Shelly also touched on some metaphorical language in her excerpt from her novel "Frankenstein."
Githa Hariharan’s second novel The Ghosts of Vasu Master takes a fresh approach to address a number of postcolonial and postmodern issues. It deals with such themes as alternative methods of teaching, maladies and the process of healing, teacher-pupil relationship, and India’s journey as an independent nation. On probing deeper into the novel, however, it may be said that the novel also explores issues concerning women, their longings and their marginal existence in a patriarchal set-up. Although The Ghosts of Vasu Master is not a woman-centric novel, yet Hariharan has subtly addressed many relevant feminist issues through it. The process of marginalisation of the girl-child, the husbands’ neglect of their wives, crimes committed upon women’s bodies and psyches, feminine interiority, post-widowhood loneliness, friendship among women—all these feminist issues find a highly refined, though brief, expression in the novel.
Throughout this piece of literature, there are numerous cases of gender discrimination that are apparent. While this particular prejudice may not play as large of a role as a theme as others, it is still quite critical to the overall storyline. Much of the use of this discriminatory element is obscure throughout Harper Lee's novel. Nonetheless, after careful analyzing of the plot, this component is decidedly noticeable.

I would like to explore the concept of love, the dichotomy of the masculine/feminine perspective and how it relates to the two short stories. Also I will explore the ideas of “phantoms” or in other words the imaginary idealization and objectification of the characters. The two stories I have chosen are “The Things They Carried,” written by Tim O’Brien and “Love Letters” written by Patricia Zelver. Both of these stories in some way deal with war and love letters and how these letters affect the main characters. We see varying points of view and different levels of importance placed on the love letters in these two stories, especially by the main characters, Lt. Jimmy Cross and Emily Abbot.
All these authors use diction in certain parts of their text to make their argument peculiar. They use contradictory views to make the reader choose the view that is correct for him/her, instead of forcing a conclusion on them. Works Cited Dillard, Annie. "The Wreck of Time." Harper's.
