Black Mamba: The Female Badass

- What defines a real “Badass?” Most will agree that this label applies to a tough and rebellious individual who follows his own path. However, this term is inherently masculine as it involves rough qualities associated with a powerful male. In Jack Katz’s analysis in “Ways of the Badass,” he refers only to males when he deconstructs the persona of this strong character. Despite this imbedded conception, can a female be considered a badass if she possesses the associated qualities.

Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy

This essay, through analysis of Volumes 1 and 2 of Tristram Shandy (with latter volumes in mind), seeks to illume Sterne's methods of subverting the novelistic form, interacting with the reader, and engaging with the theme of time in relation to the question of the reader as a character in Tristram Sha...   [tags: Newton's Third Law, Literary Analysis]
