A Hero in Their Own Way

- Throughout literature, the personification of the hero has adopted a number of different meanings. Originally represented as being an individual who wasn’t bound by limitations, Heroes demonstrated the ideal ways in which a person should live or strive to become. Later on, contrasting adaptations of the hero started to form. The once “larger than life” portrayal of the hero is now beginning to deteriorate, as they began to possess lacking physical, mental, and sometimes moralistic traits that would once make them stand out from the collective whole....   [tags: Character Analysis]

Virginia Woolf's Style And Subject In A Room of One's Own

- Times have changed since universities admitted only male students. Women have gained the right to educate themselves, and the division of the sexes in business has decreased dramatically. When Virginia Woolf wrote her essay A Room of One’s Own, however, there was a great lack of female presence in literature, in writing specifically. In the essay, Woolf critiques this fact by taking the reader on a journey through a day in the life at a fictional university to prove that although women are capable of critical thought and want to write great works of literature, they are unable to for lack of means....   [tags: A Room of One's Own]

A Room of One's Own, by Virignia Woolf

- In A Room of One’s Own, Virignia Woolf presents her views evenly and without a readily apparent suggestion of emotion. She treads softly over topics that were considered controversial in order to be taken seriously as an author, woman, and intellectual. Woolf ensures this by the use of humor, rationalization, and finally, through the art of diversion and deflection. By doing this Woolf is able to not alienate her audience but instead create a diplomatic atmosphere, as opposed to one of hostility that would assuredly separate the opinions of much of her audience....   [tags: A Room of One's Own Essays]

Virginia Woolf's A Room of One’s Own

- In Virginia Woolf’s feminist essay “A Room of One’s Own,” Woolf argues that “a woman must have money and a room of her own” (16) if she is to write fiction of any merit. The point as she develops it is a perceptive one, and far more layered and various in its implications than it might at first seem. But I wonder if perhaps Woolf did not really tap the full power of her thesis. She recognized the necessity of the writer’s financial independence to the birth of great writing, but she failed to discover the true relationship to great writing of another freedom; for just as economic freedom allows one to inhabit a physical space---a room of one’s own---so does mental freedom allow one to i...   [tags: Literature Room of One's Own Papers]

The Combray Section of Marcel Proust's Swann's Way

The book begins, though, not with recollections of Combray, but with a description of the narrator's half-asleep state, a state of consciousness where he does not know where, or even who, he is. The expanded memories of his past, then, seem an attempt to establish a stable sense of self, a sense that continually eludes him. In this exploration, which constitutes the entirety of the "Combray" section, we find the narrator, a young man with literary aspirations, struggling to understand the characters of his childhood in a way t...   [tags: Swann's Way]

Education is what music is to the ears, a peaceful and enjoyable ride meant to be fun and interesting mainly to exercise the mind....   [tags: Education, Learning, School, History of education]

Faith in Christ comes through conversion, which can happen in an adult, in a young child, or any age in between. This new birth is necessary, as Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:3, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” New birth is the only way to receive faith, with no work of our own, and should be understood properly as future public ministers of the gospel....   [tags: Christianity, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Christian terms]
