At this point, stories of love and passion called to her more than ever. She remembers how she fantasized about the love affairs that she secretly read about in her romance novels, envisioning her life to comprise of similar satisfactions. She recalls how her vivid imagination had engrossed her into the depths of the story. One may say that this sudden change could be due to her imagination implanting false information into her head. Life certainly has not turned out the way she dreamed.
Through the narrator, the readers learn her inner thoughts: Before her marriage she had believed herself to be in love; but since the happiness which should have resulted from this love had not come to her, she felt that she must have been mistaken.

This type of façade presented by romance novels only adds to the amount of discontent toward intimacy that many readers already face. A simple first date s are no longer enough to fulfill a person’s newfound need for a passionate encounter since it does not guarantee a night of steamy sex like in the novels. Authors of romance novels have captured their readers’ deepest desires and translate them onto paper and in the process inadvertently transformed the concept of love and intimacy into a fairytale-like impression. As the popularity of romance novels continues to rise, it can be expected that the sultry and highly dramatized notion of romance will continue to thrive in the minds of many avid romance readers.
Emma by Jane Austen is a novel that either people connect to or do not. Emma is someone who resembles a girl who is going through a self issue dealing with being naive to fall in love, while she is creating new matches for everyone around her.

Unlike novels that are meant only to entertain their readers, Little Women is also meant to chaperon readers toward their own self-improvement and salvation. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott has greatly enriched my understanding, as a reader, about poverty, salvation, religion and most importantly, the transformation of young girls into strong women. The book is impressively written, displaying a combination of symbolism, characters that are hard not to adore and hints of important American history.
Sometimes people need to find their true selves and when we do that we find our true happiness and sometimes you gain things you never had or thought you needed. In the book, Edna begins the process of identifying her true self, the self that exists apart from the identity she maintains as a wife and mother, Robert unknowingly encourages her by indulging her emerging sensuality (Houghton). Kate Chopin wrote The Awakening to show people of the nineteenth century society and the upcoming generations, how hard women had to struggle to overcome their differing emotions and the coercion of society’s tradition to become more than just personal property for men to control.

The summary on the book gave me the fair idea of what the story is but only by reading it I understood the emotions filled in the story. I somehow realized the importance of relationship after reading this book and realized that it’s never the fault of situation that we are not able to find out time for our loved ones, instead it’s all about one’s priorities. It depends on the person to choose between his career or family or rather maintain a balance between both. I loved the ending but I think it could have been concluded in a better way. Being a typical girl I would rather like a fantasized happy ending where Shrikant would have changed and declined the New York stock exchange listing offer and instead go out and search for her lost love Shrimati and bring her back after making her realize how much he loves her and then live happily ever after with

This song represent Blanche’s approach on life, she thinks that if she immerses herself far enough into her fantasy world it will eventually become a reality. In conclusion I think that book was amazing to read and I really enjoyed interpreting the different themes but the film added more depth and option for opinions for the story. For example hoe the director decided to present the characters and the ending of the book.
They ended up finding out something about themselves that they weren't even aware of before. Marriage can be a form of repression and can become dull, but it can also be wonderful and a valued friendship. Current times are lucky times, especially for American women because now women are freer than ever to take charge--in or out of the bedroom. Works Cited Chopin, Kate. "The Storm."
