In this way, Emily Bronte controls her audience in the same way Heathcliff control’s his... ... middle of paper ... ...ss in the end. Bronte makes this fictional setting seem plausible because she employed both of these themes in the way that she wrote her novel. By purposefully leaving major questions unanswered in the novel, Bronte deceives many readers into thinking that they have free reign in interpreting these perceived plot wholes. In fact, these are not plot wholes at all; but instead, examples of literary genius employed by Emily Bronte that are only appreciated by careful readers. She used unreliable narrators to recant stories that occurred at the Wuthering Heights and the Grange because the details did not need to be overly in depth in order for the major themes to be understood by the attentive audience.
Because she had no contact with other poets of her time, her style was quite original. Because she was not writing for an audience, many of her poems are deeply personal. It is up to the readers of Dickinson’s poetry to remove themselves from reality, and escape into the many corners of her mind.
She has also added an ironic turn to the phrase “I, too, dislike it” (Line 1) because of her dislike of poetry has not stopped her from continuing to complain about such a system in the form of something does not like.

This “place for the genuine” Moore refers to in both versions of her poem is considered the setting of her poem. It is only here that people who have succeed in telling the truth, and staying true to the craft of writing poetry can exist.
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.
Ramsay, Lily Briscoe is a free-spirited painter who represents the other side of the feminist argument. A character that closely reflects Woolf’s own worldview, Lily cannot come to comprehend why women are treated with ignominy and attempts to challenge the misogynistic standard around her. Although she fiercely admires Mrs. Ramsay, Lily rejects the digressive ways that she thinks: “She took shelter from the reverence that covered all women; she felt herself praised” (46), she wants to be able to feel empowered and important without being grouped together with other women in a negative context. Because Lily wants to be treated as an individual with her own goals and opinions and the opportunity to live them out, she finds herself conflicted when she sees how other women accept the gender conventions because she wants to fit in, but does not want to conform. However, she dismisses her doubts because she is able to explain to herself that she does not need to heed to societal pressure.
Pride is commonly debated and every character seems to have individual opinion on the theme. “His pride, said Miss Lucas, ‘does not offend me so much as pride often does, because there is an excuse for it.

Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice is certainly a novel with serious themes but these themes are coupled with the light heartedness of every day conversation full of humour, ironic dialogue and events developed by the three different types of narration present in the novel. It is understandable some people will not understand the wit and humour in Austen’s writing yet it is only a small minority of the population that will read Pride and Prejudice.
Rich writes, “It is in the tone of a woman almost in touch with her anger, who is determined not to appear angry, who is willing herself to be calm and detached, and even charming in a roomful of men where things have been said which are attacks on her very integrity...she is acutely conscious-as she always was-of being overheard by men” (Rich 20). Rich articulates that Woolf, even while writing about women in fiction, was not able to free herself from male criticism. Her attempts to appeal to women but not displease men lead her essay to be less effective than it could have
Due to the time period she wrote in, Angelou would be criticized for her ability to write, “without apology,” of the fearful life she lived. However, now that is the reason as to why her work is so highly praised. Yet, critics feel as if Angelou’s work is simply overused and not appreciated for what it truly is. Instead of looking at Angelou as a poet, people look at her as an, “inspirational public speaker,” and can often be found on the front of a, “Hallmark greeting card,” instead of the pages in a textbook. Angelou doesn’t really show this criticism in her work but she does represent the criticism she received as African American woman poet in her time period.

She uses marriage as way to place her characters in this state of wandering as far as their identity is concerned, and then finds a way to awaken them in a way where they become unhappy with their lives, but then doesn't let them find a way to change it. It should be recognized that Chopin broke the boundaries as far as writing about female characters in a way that most people didn't even think of them. But, more importantly, Chopin did not break barriers with her characters final actions. Using things like going back home, cheating on a spouse and dying she ultimately abandons the hope she installed that women can be happy and can make change for themselves.
I enjoyed The Giver because it shows how important feelings even bad ones are to life. The best part of the book is when Jonas finally escapes to the “past world”. The story made me realize that even my most saddening memories help me in the end. Unfortunately I do not get feelings from books, especially fiction. I would recommend this book to friends; I don’t particularly like this author’s style so I wouldn’t specifically read another one of her books.
