Characterization in Sister Carrie

- Characterization in Sister Carrie      The theme of unrequited love and unfulfilled ambitions, against a backdrop of a nation being transformed by industrialism and capitalism, provides the substance of Theodore Dreiser's Sister Carrie.  During the late 19th Century we encounter three main characters who demonstrate this underlying motif:  Carrie Meeber, Charles H.

Thom Gunn’s Donahue’s Sister

- Thom Gunn’s Donahue’s Sister       Thom Gunn was a poet who often wrote of common hardships in every day life.  Gunn’s writing style and choice of topics makes it obvious that he was writing in the middle to late twentieth century, and this is what draws people of today to his work.  I believe that not only are people able to relate better to Gunn because of his topic selection but because of the time period the majority of his work is written in.     In the twentieth century, particularly since the 1950’s or so, we have witnessed as a society; the arrival of AIDS, an increasing amount of single parent families, an increase in drug and alcohol use among young people, controversy over homo...   [tags: Donahues Sister]

Reversal of Male/Female Roles in Sister Carrie

- Dreiser's Reversal of Male/Female Roles in Sister Carrie The novel Sister Carrie seems to be the platform from which Dreiser explores his unconventional views of the genders. In the world of Sister Carrie, it would seem that the role of women as trusting, caring creatures, and men as scheming victimizers is reversed; it is Carrie that uses the men around her to get what she wants, and it is those men who are victimized by her. Thus Dreiser uses this novel as a means of questioning the popular notions of gender and the role that it plays in modern society....   [tags: Sister Carrie Essays]
