Confusion in Landscape for a Good Woman

- Confusion in Landscape for a Good Woman I found Landscape for a Good Woman to be a confusing landscape, one whose contours are difficult to follow. I don't mean to imply that I did not find the book fascinating, but it was so rich and the stories and scholarly discussions were so intertwined that it was difficult to keep track of what Steedman was trying to convey. Why did she choose to write in this way. Instead of giving us a straight narrative about her childhood and allowing us to make our own inferences, I feel as if she's told a story and, at the same time, she's told us how to interpret that story and has given us a critique of her own and others' interpretations of her story....   [tags: Landscape for a Good Woman Essays]

Good Night Death

- John Donne and Dylan Thomas lived centuries apart with death being a very prominent part of each of their lives due to wars and plagues. The common theme of both poems is their attitudes towards death based on the belief of what happens to the human soul after the physical life comes to fruition. The authors’ beliefs influence their use of personification to conceptualize death to make it a more formidable adversary. The poems, “Death Be Not Proud” by John Donne, and “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night,” by Dylan Thomas share a likeness in the concept of death, but their views of death are as contrasting as the lives of the two authors....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]
