Jane Austen’s Influence on Literature “A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of.” This was one of many austere comments made by Jane Austen in her book Mansfield Park. It was this radical way of writing that captured the attention of readers from all over, and made a lasting impression on scholars, critics, and readers for centuries. Austen tremendously impacted the world of literature by introducing a new style of writing, using new literary devices to describe her daily life, and continuing to remain current throughout the centuries. Jane Austen was one of the first writers to introduce an entirely new style of writing. Before Austen wrote her novels, the writing was unrealistic, dismissable and unrelatable.
Behn impacted the world, not only with her writing, but also with her determination and voice about her feminist opinions. Behn showed strength and courage by persevering through her struggles and tragedies. Aphra, a skilled writer, demonstrated her strong views that distinguished her from other writers. Aphra did not attend school, but she gained her education through various contacts that taught her both literature and music (Brackett). Due to Behn’s debt she started writing to earn a source of income.
During the Romanticism Period, artistic capabilities, literature, and creative elements flourished through contemporary practices, going against the norm of society. This sparked an “age of emotions.”Following this, women brilliantly regained affirmation to challenge the historical constraints against them and manifest in opposition to the unlikely probabilities. Aphra Behn's most enduring work the novel Oroonoko... ... middle of paper ... ... This is certainly exemplified in Wordsworth’s Floating Island as nature a prevailing sense of being is given the characteristics’ of a woman “but nature, though we mark her not, will take away-may cease to give (533).” Literature gained so much more meaning as women began to interpret the world through their eyes. The implication of literature increased and expanded universally.
This shows that she is lonely because she has no close family or friends around her who she can talk to so she think that by writing letters she is helping the people around her and making herself feel useful. In the monologue Miss Ruddock writes letters to a wide range of people. All of the letters have one thing is common, which is that they are all letters of complaint. She goes to the funeral of somebody she barely knew and complained to the funeral directors about ‘grown men sulking in the rhododendrons with tab ends in their mouths’. She also, after a trip to London, wrote to the Queen to complain about some dog poo in front of Buckingham Palace.

However, this analytical discussion on a particular ground of feminism focuses on a different style of writing, a special mood of expressing the subordinate voices of the society. These two discussed poets though occupy a larger portion in English Literature but their works polish the literature and brightens its glow to the different age’s readers. Their dynamic approach in literary works is not only a break through to the stagnancy of traditionalism rather literature becomes like ‘heteroglosic’.
Set in colonial New Zealand, "The Garden Party" falls into two clearly different parts. A lot of the story is about the preparations and the consequences of the garden party, it was organized by the daughters of the privileged Sheridan family. As dawn breaks, Laura goes into the Sheridan's exquisite garden to inspect the proposed site for the marquee. Her encounter with three workers hired to raise the tent is awkward and confused, as she finds herself torn between being a snob and her developing sense of morality. This story is perceived as the difference between life and death, and can sometimes be portrayed in objects.
Ethan exist as a product of his environment because of the situations he’s been through because of the isolation involved with Starkfield. Confinement provides a huge role in Starkfield, many of the couples in the town are with each others cousins and close relatives, this just shows the extreme isolation surrounding the entire New England town. The town of Starkfield represents an overall symbol for isolation mostly because of how the author depicts landscape and weather and the confinement of the townspeople and Ethan. The novella shows how isolation and confinement can influence a person's future goals and overall life. “I simply felt that he lived in a depth of moral isolation too remote for casual access,”(Wharton, 12) the quote shares how even though Starkfield itself is isolated, the farm Ethan lives on is even isolated from the town of Starkfield.
Hawthorne himself took pains to propagate the notion that he had lived as a hermit who left his upstairs room only for nighttime walks and hardly communicated even with his mother and sisters (547). Henry James, a contemporary of Nathaniel Hawthorne, who knew him socially, had lots to say about Hawthorne’s isolation and shyness in his book Hawthorne: . . . this region to be of a "weird and woodsy" character; and Hawthorne, later in life, spoke of it to a friend as the place where "I first got my cursed habits of solitude.
The ceremony had no bells or whistles; the reception was a little bigger however. Working Class Wedding Receptions Working class receptions occurred at night after work hours. Working immediate family and friends would be able to attend (Phegley 133). The bride and bridegroom had a very plain cake to cut and serve, and close friends and family gave gifts to the newlyweds. The gifts were practical items that consisted of household items and food (Phegley 133).
This group consisted of my three siblings and our father. I believe that the members of this performed the task decently. At the end of the meeting it was decided that we would all go to Granny’s (my father’s mother) house for Thanksgiving and if we wanted to go our own thing for Christmas, we would be free to. Everyone came with his or her own idea of what would make the holidays special. My younger brother decided that he would rather be all-alone at school.
