The simple act of writing about these shocks is possibly her greatest pleasure. Although Virginia Woolf s Moments of Being begins with concern for her reader, she eventually gets caught up in her writing and writes on a more personal level. Rather than writing her autobiography to convince the reader of something, she writes a heartfelt, introspective work. In writing her autobiography, she is not searching for reader empathy; instead she is coming to terms with her past.
The main point in her article is that she wants people to see the play more as a story about a woman gaining in personal development and courage rather than gender roles in a society mostly male dominated. At the end of the play, she wants reade... ... middle of paper ... ... continuum of time; however, it is enough time for me to change thoughts and opinions on this play. In the beginning, I viewed Nora in a different light than when I reread it a second time. Two different scholarly articles back up both of my views though in how I took the play. In the end, I challenge readers to possibly pick up one of those pieces of literature they had to read a while back.
I can’t not hump. It comes. It invades.” Ozick declared this as if she had no intention of this story changing into therefore immense and disputable and wide acclaimed, that begs the question of what specifically was she attempting to try and do with this story. i think the symbolism during this story is that the key to unlocking the ideals and morals she was maybe attempting to convey. In preparation for penning this essay I researched alternative works of Ozick and came upon her essay, “Metaphor and Memory”, that i used to be certain would facilitate Pine Tree State perceive the story additional given her wide use of metaphors.
. . We need to know the writing of the past, and know it differently than we have ever known it; not to pass on a tradition but to break its hold over us. Rich is aware of the importance of revising the historical and the literary heritage as it was exclusive vis-à-vis women, and as it must be rewritten to include women’s (her) story and break up with the old stereotypes that were held on women. Rich adds in the same essay: For writers and at this moment for women writers in particular, there is the challenge and promise of a whole new psychic geography to be explored.
This shows how Charlotte Brontë decided to write the novel in the first person narrative, this will again enable the readers to get up close and personnel, this will also get the readers some of her life as they were with her as it happened. This is one of the advantages of writing in the first person narrative. However a disadvantage of this style of writing is that us the readers our only able to read one point of view, but to me this is also another advantage because this novel suits the style of a first person narrative, Charlotte Brontë has done this deliberately, so the reader can focus more on Jane Eyre and her life. In comparison John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice And Men' was set in the agricultural side, in the heart of the 1937 U.S.A. Also John Steinbeck wrote the novel during the great depression. John Steinbeck made the two main characters 'George Milton and Lennie Small'.

A main weakness would be how she discusses a certain topic in one chapter and then in the next she goes against everything she just said. For example she discusses the topic of mentors and how she does not really agree with people seeking mentors but then goes onto write “The more women help one another, the more we help ourselves. Acting like a coalition truly does produce results”(Sandberg, 164). This statement like others in the book leaves you wondering what she truly believes because she continues to contradict herself.
The reader is expected to go above and beyond simply reading a book. Everything an author does is purposeful and intentional, it is up to the reader to recognize these things and get the most out of the book they can. Although Morrison employs many other narrative techniques within Sula being able to recognize the narrator, the cruxes and the themes the reader can gain a better understanding and appreciation for the narrative they are reading and the argument (in this case) that Morrison is making for women experiences.

Several texts, including but not limited to, Queen Elizabeth’s On Monsieur’s Departure, Mary Austins’ The Walking Woman, and The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman explore the betterment of women writers and their texts in society. Betterment, another word for progression, in this case means where women started at the beginning of their texts and where they stand at the conclusion. However, progress does not happen overnight. Instead, it took a great deal of motivation for changes to occur. The three texts mentioned continue to expose the progress women had truly made overall during the time in which their pieces happened to be written.
It 's a big symbol to me because it ties into what my opinion of the theme is in her story . The theme in my perspective is maturity and immaturity. The title reflects the meaning because it shows and hints where she is heading to and where she has been. the title hints the ending in my view because the future is “where she is going:” with arnold which connects with her being immature in the past that lead her to that moment. After doing some research i came across some journals who reflect the title and its meaning.
The length of the novel allows for pacing. Austin can fully develop her characters and show them in many circumstances, in different contexts over time, a method that helps to flesh out the characters. For example, we observe Anne Elliot, dwarfed by the selfish concerns of her father and sister Elizabeth while at Kellynch Hall and Anne's lack of crit... ... middle of paper ... ...ry, but her details about this particular segment of society should be accurate (as accurate as can be made by an observer, and a woman sequestered from male-dominated world). If this were not so, we would not try to read novels as a reflection of society. And cultural criticism using novels for analysis would be useless.
