Analysis Of The Afterword Of Bloodchild By Olivia Butler

- Olivia Butler writes in the afterword of “Bloodchild” that it’s not a story of slavery, and evidence from close reading can be used to support this statement. Butler uses the human form as a vehicle for defamiliarization to show the mechanical functions readers serve themselves and others. Furthermore, this process is able to reveal their passive nature and ultimately highlight the human allowance for manipulation. She brings light to these behaviors by showing a lack of respect for human life, an unbalanced power relationship between the Tlic and the humans, and Gan’s stripped cognitive process....   [tags: Human, Meaning of life, Thought, Life]

After considerable thought and research, I intend to propose and support the argument that Olivia is not being simply "coy" towards Orsino, nor does she desire Cesario because he/she is attracted to him/her. She denies Orsino because of her refusal to marry a man of higher rank and desires to marry Cesario because he is a man of lower rank.

Essay Analysis: Abortion, Intimacy, and the Duty to Gestate by Margaret Olivia Little

- In her essay “Abortion, Intimacy, and the Duty to Gestate,” Margaret Olivia Little examines whether it should be permissible for the state to force the intimacy of gestation on a woman against her consent. Little concludes that “mandating gestation against a woman’s consent is itself a harm - a liberty harm” (p. 303). She reaches this conclusion after examining the deficiencies in the current methods used to examine and evaluate the issues of abortion. Their focus on the definition of a “person” and the point in time when the fetus becomes a distinct person entitled to the benefits and protections of the law fails to capture “the subtleties and ambivalences that suffuse the issue” (p....   [tags: the right to life, ethical issues]

Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

- In the play Twelfth Night Viola’s disguise is a prime example of Feste’s line in the play “nothing that/ is so is so” (4.1.6-7).

Malvolio is used as the messenger of love between Olivia and Cesario....   [tags: Viola, literary analysis]
