As in the play Blanche loves writing letters to Shep, here she loves writing the diary entry. In this diary entry I have included themes of avoiding light, fantasy, reality, bathing, alcohol, and gender roles. In this diary entry I have used some features such as nickname for example “Stella my baby and star”. As known the diary entry is personal, thus I have used formal language because Blanche used to be a teacher in Laurel and also feels that she belongs to the higher class of the society. Her Blanche is living in a standard mental asylum due to not having money
In Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, Flaubert inserted major aspects of his life into the novel. Gustave Flaubert’s plan for Madame Bovary was that the novel was Flaubert’s perception of modern women. He believed that view of modern women was corrupted by society to be perceived as shallow or other false ideals (“Flaubert” 481). Since the view of modern women was corrupted, she cannot follow her true desire of real love (“Flaubert” 481). The view of modern women “would combine in one transcendent experience the fullest physical experiences with the richest spiritual ones” (“Gustave Flaubert” 481).
The Beast however is a misunderstood kind and loving person in both the versions. But “Belle” on the other hand has become an independent, hardhearted feminist. In this dramatic monologue, she mentions beautiful and influential women throughout history and compares herself to them. “” She mentions these people to show that their downfall was indirectly caused due to the authority of men in their lives. Duffy through her version of Beauty and the Beast tries to show how she and women like her should be
Feminism acknowledges women as competent, intelligent and responsible human beings, capable of making independent decisions and contributing to social and national progress. Feminism is the strife to achieve equality in society. Literature too was dominated by the male sex. Women were considered to be lacking in wit, intelligence and creative talents. At the most they were
She knits a register of all the oppressors belonging to the ancien régime, dooming them to destruction. Her knitting is an unalterable chronicle, a grim history which records the past in a mysterious female language that only she and her sister-knitters can decipher. It forms an analogue for omniscient narration in the novel, contrasting with Dickens 's apparently more fluid and sympathetic handling of history. The knitted register produces a shock in its implicit linkage of images and emotions normally opposed in Victorian middle-class
A constant comparison and contrast between Maggie and Dee is prominent structural feature of the narrative. This structural strategy helps in conceptualizing the plurality of female experience within the same milieu. This strategy encapsulates another dimension of womanism, viz., womanism refuses to treat black woman as a homogeneous monolith. Unlike feminist position, womanism is sensitive to change with time. This womanist conceptualization is shown by a nuanced destruction by Dee’s response to the quilt, which is the main metaphor in the story.
She uses this reference to show how women have been stripped of their natural rights, yet expected to combat the trials brought by life. Cady Stanton eventually states her belief that someone has to struggle in life in order to survive, whether it is a male or female. This natural event clearly promotes equality that should occur between the two genders. To support this belief, the writer states: “It matters not to whether the solitary voyager is man or woman; nature, having endowed them equally; leaves them to their own skill and judgment in the hour of danger, and, if not equal to the occasion, alike they perish.” The author is
A feminist reading of the poem “The Freaks” The Freaks by Kamala Das is a good example of a feminist reading. Kamala Das is well known feminist Indian writer. Her writings can be a medium to convey the true men and women relationship that is unseen but secretly experienced by most of the married people. Her poem is also a medium to express how women were controlled by the social norms and the women’s lack of individuality. According to Dr. Yousef (Faculty Member, Azad University), Kamala is the first woman to openly talk about Women 's social unrest in respect of education and career, sexual desire and frustration, suffocation of a loveless marriage.
The other novel The Binding Vine portrays how the educated and earning women help poor women including the soul of solidarity among women. The novel speaks the truth about the anguish of a wife who is the casualty of conjugal assault; and the predicament of women raped outside marriage, who might rather endure peacefully for the sake of family respect. A Matter of Time depicts a women who is more develop and stately than her antecedents. When others can 't consider themselves outside the familial bond, she finding herself in, unperturbed. She is minimal disengaged, however oversees herself outstandingly and just about gets to be self-subordinate.
In my work “Ndiyaphila, Ninjani Nina?” depicts an enchained woman with a frustrated expression on her face. The title of my work when translated from Xhosa to English means “ I’m doing well, thank you, how are you?” which is a contradiction to what you see in my work as the woman doesn’t look very inviting. She is physically and emotionally in a position where she would not be asking how someone else is doing. This speaks of the selflessness women are constantly being taught to have. Even though she is in a painful and unhappy condition she still thinks of others before herself.
