The Reef by Nora Roberts

- ... This theory aims at eliminating male supremacy to achieve gender equality. Globally, females are portrayed as the subordinate gender; such sexism is what the feminist theory criticizes. Nora Roberts, in her history of novel writing, has neither ever declared herself as a feminist nor have any of her books been declared as ‘feminist books’. This is very obvious in this novel of hers because she portrays both genders just as society views them: males the superior, females the subordinate. From the feminist’s viewpoint, there can be said to be evidence of patriarchy and male dominance in this text....   [tags: romance and suspense novels]

Robert Frost's Poem Fire and Ice

- Robert Frost's Poem "Fire and Ice" If you had a choice on how the world would end, what would you choose. Would your choice to be go painfully but fast. Perhaps you would rather it be so slow and painless you do not even realize it is happening. That's what I believe Robert Frost's poem Fire and Ice is meant to express. Although the poem is short, it holds a very interesting question to think about. The question is which way would you rather the world come to an end. There are two choices.      The first two lines in Fire and Ice express the choices, "Some say the world will end in fire, / Some say in ice.'; I feel that he uses the term fire not to hold the direct meaning of a burning fla...   [tags: Robert Frost Fire Ice Poet Poem Poems Essays]
