Alice Walker's In Love and Trouble

- Alice Walker's In Love and Trouble Stories from In Love and Trouble, like other Alice Walker’s works, are the portrayal of black women. I would interpret the term “black women” as women who have gone through all sorts of hardship and struggles, but not all women in the world or only those with black skin. I strongly argue that Walker’s characters are better represented as women who suffer the way African American women do, than as women with black skin. I will justify my argument by referring to specific examples from two short stories in the book, namely Roselily and Everyday Use....   [tags: Alice Walker Love Trouble Essays]

- In the long tradition of American screwball comedies, Big Trouble, directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and based on the novel by Dave Barry, is something of a return to form in a medium that has excelled in defying old conventions over the last few decades.

The philosophy went from object that appeared to subject that thought it. After Descartes, there is a big turn, because after him, we cannot trust naturally in our mind, we have to put everything parenthesis, doubt about everything and we are the constructors of the reality, philosophy goes from subject who think to object thought, and this is a big problem....   [tags: subject, think, modern, problem]
