A book editor for mass-market books and a female magazine writer, Danuta Kean (2012) found a startling trend of women writers producing more horrific violence novels that some men authors have. Confronted with the question about the trend, some women writers argued that they simply wrote about the fear that only women feel, like the fear of being raped that men do not understand. Unlike the current trend and the freedom that many women writer enjoy, Cherry character in the The Outsiders novel represents the transition of a woman’s writer views on their own roles and expectations in the
The Odyssey by Homer contains multiple moments where female characters are oppressed or fit into a patriarchy, but there are several moments where these character show signs of rebellion against this oppression. Applying a critical lense of feminism to these characters and relationships create complexities and conflicts within the novel that shine meaning on the world. The character Penelope offers many of these moments. Analyzing the actions, situation, and comparisons with other characters using a the feminist critical lense will show a more enriched version of Penelope and offer a deeper insight of the patriarchy, and how is affects the world. To accomplish this analyzation I have structured this paper into an intro paragraph, four body paragraphs, and a conclusion paragraph.
In her essay she uses ethos, pathos, and logos when she is expressing her own view on women’s body image.She also takes advantage strong Diction and tone to consistently show her side throughout the whole paper. Lipkin effectively tries to convince her audience that women in society have a wrong persecution of what they think a their body image should be like through credible information from personal information and
Atwood has centred the novel around this to warn the readers of the things women are becoming to do more regularly. To conclude Atwood’s novel “The Handmaid’s Tale” is centred around the horrifying extent of men marginalisation of women. Atwood has shown the consequences of this to such an extent to show the world just what society looks like. If women continue to accept that they are ‘inferior’ to males. Atwood also shows that women are extremely powerful when they unite as one to become this great force.
I believe that the critical lens that provides modern society with the most compelling view of literature is Feminist Criticism because it analyzes distrust and disloyalty among relationships, women being treated as possessions and shows the representation of powerful women. Modern society would analyze literature using a feminist perspective because most literature analyzes the relationship between genders and the powerful influence and meaning it has to the readers life. Othello is a great play to analyze with many different types of literature criticisms, but Feminist Criticism analyzes the plot and the main characters situation most. It is still so common to see many of the points presented in the book till this day, men believing that they are stronger than women and treating them as inferior. Even so women are trying to make their voice be heard and demonstrating everyday the vital impact they have in society.
What happened in past pop culture is undeniable, and it is definitely evidence. When she was talking about the expectations of beauty for women, references help solidify her point that they are subjected to certain requirements. Appeals are a technique used very often by the author, and something that cannot be overlooked when doing an analysis of this book. Tina Fey uses appeals to manipulate the reader into thinking what she wants us to think. Among the ones she uses are appealing to a sense of humour, making herself relatable, and also making the reader feel angry with
Adding to the ever growing library of women, Virginia Woolf used her unique stream of consciousness style of writing to convey new ideas about gender roles and gender identity, paving the way for more women to find rooms of their own. One can only hope to influence generations of people with one’s writing, bringing about new conversations and ways of communicating. Eventually, Virginia Woolf committed suicide, ending her highly original career and perhaps echoing a point she makes in her own essay, “To have lived a free life in London in the sixteenth century would have meant for a woman who was a poet and playwright a nervous stress and dilemma which might well have killed her”
Finally, it will conclude by briefly discussing the significance of the extract within the novel’s wider themes. Austen creates bathos, by using subtle causticness and parody, and intertextually burlesquing, influential sensationalist and sentimental novels of the time, particularly Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho (1794). Essentially, by writing in this style, Austen emphasises the ordinariness, patriarchal abuse, and general oppression of women that was present then in everyday domestic life (Realisms, p. 59). These subtle narrative techniques, were key elements Austen used to modify public perception of the novel’s expectations, which conveys the concept of ‘reading’ itself, and defines the novel as a genre. Principally, by writing in this style, Austen increases the reader’s interest, defining Northanger Abbey, as not only an ironic disclosure of satire, but a
This reductive literary tradition of portraying women as inherently crazy by authors is well explored in the book The Madwomen in the Attic: The Women Writer and the Nineteenth-Century Literary Imagination by Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar. In their tome of literary criticism, Gilbert and Gubar delve deeply through a feminist rereading of many celebrated 19th century literary works by female (and male) authors and quickly came to see the challenges these female writers encountered and the mechanisms they used as to navigate the confines of such tropes out of the scholarly and literary tools left from their male writer
The Reality of Edna’s Awakening Kate Chopin’s The Awakening was a dramatic novella that was based on society and how Edna was treated, love and independence of finding her true self. The author inputs the theme in a numerous amount of literary devices that include round character, irony and a metaphor to exaggerate the theme. This shows how Edna has two sides to herself; the one that tries to fit into society and another side that the public can see as a swell mother. First of all, Edna wanted to break her place in society as she was part of the “mother- woman” status. Chopin used round character to describe Edna’s dramatic change throughout the novel as she has the “ability to publicly flirt” and go with other men, even though she was originally
