Analysis of Jacob Have I Loved

- Louise, the protagonist of Katherine Patterson’s Jacob Have I Loved, infuriates me.  She fights against ghosts of what she wishes to be and against what she really is, kicking and screaming all the way.  I don’t debate that she struggles with good reason -- certainly the neglect from her family, whether perceived or real, and the expectations her culture (I really want to say environment here) has placed on her gender role have contributed to her plight -- but her great inner strength and insight belies her inability to overcome or at least circumvent those obstacles.  To me, she is a rebel with the sole cause of declaring her independence from her expected gender role.  And, in that, I find...   [tags: Jacob Have I Loved]

Jacob Roberts lived in a small house on the Back Loop Road, surrounded by trees. It was a blue house with a two car garage and a wooden patio that jetted out from the north face, which made the house seem content in the atmosphere of tall pine and towering spruce.

Motherhood in Harriet Jacob's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl

- Motherhood, in its simplest definition is the state of being a mother; however, it isn't as clear cut and emotionless as the definition implies. Motherhood holds a different meaning for everyone. For some it is a positive experience, for others it's negative. Different situations change motherhood and the family unit. Slavery is an institution that twists those ideas into something hardly recognizable. The Master and the Mistress are parental figures.

Summary Of ' Jacob 's Room '

- ... An important concept when examining the indirect interior monologue narrative technique is the distinction between public and private voices. According to Anna Snaith, “if Woolf’s narrators may be said to speak with a public voice, then a character’s internal thoughts might be said to constitute a private voice” (134). In reference to this idea, the narrator is the public voice; the narrator moves the focus of the story and describes the events for the benefits of the reader (Snaith 134). Woolf lacks authority as a narrator and she is conscious of her constraints; however, she still produces a degree of “omniscience and omnipresence” (Snaith 134)....   [tags: Fiction, Style, Narrative, Narratology]
