The Handmaids Tale By Margaret Atwood

- It seems that more often when a group of people or a nation encounters calamity, some great “act of God,” or even just change, collectively, we begin to seek answers from a higher power.

Without realizing we begin to adjust laws, limit freedoms, and become despotic fascist, all in the name of God. This fear of conforming and reverting back to the “dark ages,” constraining women to “know their role or place” is what seems to have driven Margaret Atwood to write her satirical novel “The Handmaids Tale.” “The Handmaids Tale,” written by Margaret Atwood is a futuristic no...   [tags: The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood]

Margaret Atwood's Surfacing

- Margaret Atwood's 'Surfacing' Throughout the book the narrator constantly intertwines the past and present as though it is side by side. Atwood shows this in the opening sentence ‘’I can’t believe I’m on this road again’’. The use of the adjective ‘again’ reveals the narrator has been in this place in an earlier life. The narrator seems to repress a lot of her past and continuously contradicts herself, which at times confuses the reader as we can not tell whether she is talking about her past or her present and whether she regards it as home as she says ‘’Now were on home ground foreign territory’’....   [tags: Margaret Atwood Surfacing Essays]

Tips and Tricks on How to Draw

- I have been drawing since seventh grade, practicing whenever I could, even in the middle of class. I remember not having to go to a parent teacher conference because I complained about not wanting to go, all because I knew the teachers probably had something to say about my grades and lack of attention in class. I drew so much in Jr. High and high school that there were a few instances where my parents would often get angry and threaten to take my drawing stuff away.

Advertising Tricks and Misleading Media

- In todays society, we can see the media and especially social media everywhere. It is the most effective means in influencing people’s mind. Since all companies exist to create profit by selling as many of their product as possible, they are able to take advantage of the media by creating advertisements. Unfortunately, most companies will say just about anything to sell their products. Because of this, there has been a lot of misleading and untruthful factors created in advertisements. “Weasel words” (Lutz 127) are one of the ways that author William Lutz, in his essay, "With These Words, I Can Sell You Anything”, describe the terms or words that advertisers use in order to convince their...   [tags: persuasive, products, consumers]

All around the world, groups in churches have become vital elements in the swing to the right and fear-ridden resistance to change. The churches have also spawned the growth of what Brazilian Archbishop Helder Camera calls “Abrahamic minorities” and in South Africa, these groups have pushed their establishments to stand up for measures leading to the gradual dismantling...   [tags: South Africa, Africa, Black people]

The novel is, as Atwood writes in her afterword, ‘a work of fiction, although it is based on reality’(538) centred on the case of Victorian Canada’s most celebrated murderess, Grace Marks, an immigrant Irish servant girl. The manner in which Atwood imaginatively reconfigures historical fact in order to create a subversive text which ‘writes back’ to both the journals of a Canadian literary ancestor, and to Canada’s nineteenth century self -image, illustrates what critic Linda Hutcheon has called ‘the use of irony as a powerful subversive rule in the rethinking and...   [tags: Margaret Atwood Alias Grace Essays]
