The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause

- The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause This Book seems to be quite current; however I would say that it more than likely took place during the 90's.

Character Study in Manual Puig's Kiss of the Spider Woman

- Character Study in Manual Puig's Kiss of the Spider Woman On the surface, Manual Puig's Kiss of the Spider Woman is about politics and oppression. Caged literally and figuratively in an existential cell, both Molina and Valentin are wards of a police state and are therefore powerless to change their circumstances. But the novel is really about how spiritual freedom is cultivated and made manifest by Molina's retelling of his favorite movies. Because the substance of the films is first filtered through Molina's perspective, his perversion of the characters and plots reflect his own progression from an oppressed prisoner to a heroine who freely chooses the path to her own death....   [tags: Puig Kiss of the Spider Woman Essays]
