The Values, Ideals, and Actions of Fanny Fern

- The Values, Ideals, and Actions of Fanny Fern     Literature from the 1820âs to the 1860âs brought attention to the expanse of the American experience and gave rise to many unique voices. Some of the best writers of this era challenged their fellow citizens to live up to the ideals that the founding fathers had written into America's sacred documents. The voices that cast these challenges are as varied and wide spread in their approach as this nation's natural boundaries are diverse. Fanny Fern (1811-1872), was one of the writers who made a big splash with her fearless unconventionality during this literary renaissance....   [tags: Fanny Fern]

A Feminist Perspective of Fern Leaves from Fanny’s Portfolio

- A Feminist Perspective of Fern Leaves from Fanny’s Portfolio   Judith Fetterly describes the fiction of Fanny Fern as basically conservative due to the seeming resignation to the institution of marriage. She claims that Parton’s work is safe and makes only small challenges to the patriarchal institutions of her day. I do not see this in my reading of "Fern Leaves from Fanny’s Portfolio." I hear the voice of a woman who recognizes the problems with patriarchy and who does not flinch from revealing them....   [tags: Fanny Portfolio Essays]

The Birthday Present, By Fanny Burney

- The first story with a main female character in The Parent’s Assistant, Rosamond, is the “The Birthday Present” and invites readers to draw a comparison to Fanny Burney’s epistolary novel, Evelina. Both stories revolve around the education of women in their morals, and a warning to be aware of their reputation. Reputation while not what Wollstonecraft wanted women to be focused on, still played a critical role in how women were treated, and both Burney and Edgeworth knew that even with an education they still needed to be aware of what society commands....   [tags: Education, History of education, Frances Burney]

Before encountering this look of Fanny's family and her life at Portsmouth, it is clear that her time at Mansfield has changed Fanny, and not for the better. In Volume III, Chapter VIII, the entire chapter is made up of narrative, as opposed to any type of scene or dialogue....   [tags: fanny, narrative]

Fanny Price: the Heroine of Mansfield Park

- Fanny Price: The Heroine of Mansfield Park Jane Austin's Mansfield Park is not widely accepted by critics. The novel's criticism is due to the heroine, Fanny Price. Since Fanny does not encompass the conventional characteristics of a heroine (charm, wit, and beauty), critics hold the opinion that she is passive, week, and boring. Ironically, Austin's goal was to demonstrate that superficial charm and wit are nice, but there are more important characteristics such as discipline, morality, and depth of character (Moore 139)....   [tags: European Literature]

Mansfield Park’s Fanny Price

- Jane Austen’s novels are recognized for their competent heroines. From Elizabeth of Pride and Prejudice to Anne Elliot of Persuasion, Austen’s heroines are independent, indomitable, and intellectual. Mansfield Park’s protagonist Fanny is viewed in the eyes of countless readers as weak, quiet, and even snobbish. Yet when her accomplishments in the Bertram household are taken into account, Fanny reappears as a deeper figure. Fanny Price, though reserved and sullen at times, aptly presents herself as a determined and ethically sound character in a family marked by wanton behavior....   [tags: Jane Austen's Mansfield Park]

A Modern Audience, The Case Of Frederick Park And Ernest Boulton, Or Fanny And Stella

- To a modern audience, the case of Frederick Park and Ernest Boulton, or Fanny and Stella respectively, can seem impossible. These women who not only broke the stereotypical gender and sexuality mold but were unashamed to present themselves as they were to the public, contradicts today’s conception of stringent Victorian sexuality. Published in 1988, Neil Bartlett’s work Who Was That Man. A Present for Mr. Oscar Wilde considers the possibility of Fanny and Stella’s multi-faceted gender presentation for a modern audience....   [tags: Homosexuality, Gender, Sex, Transgender]
