Savannah's Mission

- Savannah had been working on that bookshelf for months now, lovingly carving it, sanding it to perfection with dried cat tails, and she’d had blood moss sitting in shadow oil for a week to make sure it’d be the perfect deep-red varnish. She’d even gone so far as to grind black pearls into a powder much finer than sand to add to the mix to make it shimmer in sunlight. She flinched as the carrier piggle shot through the open window of her crafting room, narrowly avoiding the giant bookcase she’d been working on and slamming into the wall on the far side of the room....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay]

Voice in Things Fall Apart and Anthills of the Savannah

- Voice in Things Fall Apart and Anthills of the Savannah            In "Under Western Eyes: Feminist Scholarship and Colonial Discourse," Chandra Talpade Mohanty suggests a fundamental flaw in most western feminist analysis: the presupposition that women, "across classes and cultures, are somehow socially constituted as a homogenous group identifiable prior to the process of analysis." It is a flaw in thinking that results in "the assumption of women as an always-already constituted group, one which has been labelled 'powerless,' 'exploited,' 'sexually harassed,'etc., by feminist scientific, economic, legal and sociological discourse." For Mohanty, such erroneous thinking results in femini...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]
