The Character of Mrs. Sommers in Chopin’s A Pair of Silk Stockings

- The Character of Mrs. Sommers in Chopin’s A Pair of Silk Stockings              The attempt to escaping reality proves to be a timeless act in "A Pair of Silk Stockings" by Kate Chopin. The wishful Mrs. Sommers surprisingly finds herself with a sum of money unusually large for her circumstances and in her relishing and spending it reveals herself to be truly a woman of good intentions but who is weak for the intensity of the moment. Chopin has developed a character in Mrs. Sommers who plays out the fantasy of all people, rich or poor: to be someone they are not and for a day live someone else's life....   [tags: Pair Silk Stockings]

Analysis Of ' Mrs. Dalloway And The Hours

- Postmodern writers retell an original novel by integrating narrative fragmentation, intertextuality, imitation, and self-consciousness into their writing to create a unique novel that extends from an original. An example of an author who has implemented a postmodern form of writing is Michael Cunningham in his novel The Hours. Cunningham retells Woolf 's, Mrs. Dalloway by integrating characters, writing style, and themes from Mrs. Dalloway into that of The Hours. In so doing, Cunningham effectively illustrates a deeper understanding of how a pursuit of perfection leads to feelings of unhappiness and failure in life as demonstrated in the protagonists of Mrs....   [tags: Mrs Dalloway, Virginia Woolf, Character, The Hours]

Mrs. Dalloway By William Woolf

- Early twentieth century author Virginia Woolf was fixated on the ideas of philosophy and time. Woolf believed that people were only here for a short period of time. She also believed that everyone’s life was made up of moments. Those moments could either be expanded upon or pass by; once a moment passes by, then it is gone forever. When a moment is expanded upon, then that means the moment feels as though it is more than just a second. That moment holds a special meaning or event. Woolf often incorporated these ideas about the temporality of time into her works; it is most apparent in her novel, Mrs....   [tags: Mrs Dalloway, Virginia Woolf, Time, Strike action]

Mrs. Dalloway By Virginia Woolf

- The novel Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf talks about a day of the main character named Clarissa Dalloway and the story about other people around her. One thing that I find significantly about the novel is there are two different stories about two people, a comparison of the female character Clarissa Dalloway versus Septimus Warren Smith, a shell-shocked solider that has mentally issues. Virginal Woof has successfully created a contrast between these two characters and moreover, Woolf has used several imageries and also symbolisms in the novel in order to help amplify the contrasts....   [tags: Mrs Dalloway, Virginia Woolf, World War I]

The Silk Stockings By Kate Chopin

- In the story “The Silk Stockings” by Kate Chopin, the main character is named Mrs. Sommers. For some reason, Chopin never gives Mrs. Sommers a first name. In this semi-ironic story, Mrs. Sommers is a young mother with four kids that keep her pretty occupied, but one day she receives a good amount of money. Her marriage is not explained in a lot of detail, but it hints that the marriage itself is quite weak.

Mrs. Dalloway does in fact possess "a room of her own - " and enjoys an income (or the use of an income) that is at least "five hundred a year - " (Room: 164).

Although Clarissa Dalloway is the story’s main character there is a parallel and equally significant male lead as well, Septimus Smith.
