Marianne Boruch's Year in Hawaii

- Marianne Boruch's Year in Hawaii In her poem, “Year In Hawaii,” Marianne Boruch effectively portrays the feeling of an endless, motionless setting.

There’s a dreamy, sluggish feel to her wording. Using the ocean is perfect for evoking this, as looking out at the water, “Distance stops; one sees the endless line/of something.” So much empty space rolling out and out until it meets the sky....   [tags: Marianne Boruch Year Hawaii Essays]

Sense and Sensibility

- Title “I have not wanted syllables where actions have spoken so plainly.” (Austen 68) As Elinor declares in Jane Austin’s novel Sense and Sensibility, it is true; actions do speak louder than words. What someone does means a lot more than what someone says. Someone can tell you that they love you, but if they never show you than how will you know if they truly mean it. Love is meant for people like Elinor and Edward who showed each other their love and respected social conventions. However, people like Marianne and Willoughby are not very deserving, due to their lust-based relationship and choices to ignore the common rules of society....   [tags: essays research papers]

In Byron’s ‘Manfred’, the theme of desire primarily concerns knowledge and in the latter acts, a need for forgiveness....   [tags: The Significance of Desire]

Jane Austen 's Sense And Sensibility

- Jane Austen has become an icon in the literary field over the past twenty odd years due to her well-established and deserved reputation as an author who can speak to the societal issues of her time. More importantly though, Austen has become an icon for feminist theory and academia due to her ability to portray gender issues and female marginalization within society in a complex, yet nuanced manner. While she succeeds in this feat in most of her novels, never is this clearer than in her 1811 novel, Sense and Sensibility, which critically analyzes societal patriarchy and the marginalization of women through the lens of two sisters....   [tags: Sociology, Feminism, Gender, Simone de Beauvoir]

Patriarchy in Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility

- Patriarchy in Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility Despite the fact that Jane Austen has become what Julian North describes as a “conservative icon in popular culture” signified by her depictions of “traditional class and gender hierarchies, sexual propriety and Christian values,” the novel _Sense and Sensibility_ provides, if not a feminist perspective, a feminist discourse lacking in Emma Thompson’s film version (North 38). In this essay, I attempt to argue briefly that the novel, which initially seems to uphold cultural norms of sexuality and does little to question women’s subaltern position, can be read to undermine the patriarchy and especially male-controlled courtship rituals....   [tags: Jane Austen Sense Sensibility Males Essays]
