Helen as Angel and Rebel in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

- Helen as Angel and Rebel in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall In nineteenth century England, the lives of men and women were completely different. The women had very few - or no - rights and the man had absolute power over his wife and children. He even had the rights to his wife's income or heritage. The only acceptable way for a woman to lead her life was to be a social character, a supporting wife and loving mother, so to speak an "angel in the house". The term "the angel in the house" refers to Coventry Patmore's poem with the same name....   [tags: Tenant Wildfell Hall Essays]

An Analysis of Masculinity in Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

- ... Through the devaluing of alcohol, Huntington is able to present the situation as having significance because he “wasn’t over full to-night” preventing the possibility of having “snoosed away and never dreamt of looking what my sweet lady was about” (311). Although Helen’s concerns with Huntington’s alcoholism have always been towards his disgraceful actions, Huntington is acknowledging the negative effects that alcohol can have for the first time in the novel.

Obesity Lawsuits by Nancy Hall

- In Nancy Hall's "Obesity Lawsuits" (2004) essay, Hall is determined to address the problem constantly growing and silently taking lives in America every day, obesity. The author goes on to argue that people should not be suing "fast food companies" (Hall, 2004, p. 113), but rather look at themselves to blame for becoming obese. Americans need to think about their own decisions routinely, exercise to keep the extra weight off and choose meals that are healthier (Hall, 2004). The authors thesis states: "Listening to the subtle nuance emerging from legal debate, we can hear a discernable message that clearly spells out the desperate need for further study, public awareness, and education on obe...   [tags: Analysis, Nancy Hall]

The Symbolism of Heorot Hall

Loyalty, an extremely valued ideal in the Anglo-Saxon community, can be seen in many works written from that time period.
