For her fiction, the concept of ‘mother-woman’ is highly important; nonetheless, before addressing that, I will give a short portrait of the author-woman behind it – Kate Chopin herself. Moreover, during her time, a concept of “New Woman” was emerging and her heroines (such as Edna Pontellier, Calixta, Clarisse) reflect some of the characteristics. And finally
The idea of the heroine’s journey is a largely undiscussed topic in critical literature. Books that touch on the subject focus more on the implications for women to feel empowered and less on the actual character development arc and how that arc is affected by the character’s gender. Similarly the field of young adult dystopian fiction is still largely unexplored and still developing. By looking at the character of Tally Youngblood one can see that her journey subverts conventional views of a heroine’s journey. Through Tally, the Uglies trilogy invites readers to think about how, in YA dystopian fiction, female characters face internal struggles that are mirrored by the external challenges they face.
In breaking these typical structures for a novel, she is able to uniquely craft many stories at once. While she tells the stories of each of the individual women, she also creates a larger image, one singular impression of the women’s lives as a group. Tan successfully creates a picture of how the women as a community live and experience life in a foreign
Literature is composed with many thoughts and ideas, the limitations are miniscule. For example, Sylvia Plath formulated her experiences and time period into a plot to compose her novel. As the book progresses, the protagonist provides insight on her journey and struggle to find happiness. In The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath utilizes an autobiographical protagonist to express purity versus impurity, as well as mind versus body in a world of double standards. Before one understands how Plath's experiences were influential upon her writing, it is crucial to know about her as an individual.
This is the case with a lot of people in India and Pakistan. They're con¬demned to write in English, but I don't think this is such a bad thing because English is a rich language. Naturally it is not my first language; I'm more at ease talking in Gujrati and Urdu. After moving to America I realized that all my sentences in English were punctuated with Gujrati and Urdu words. Sidhwa writes in English, it is a new English with words from the native
In the 18th century English grammar books were being published, which added a greater demand on vocabulary in vernacular. This demand increased as the vernacular lexicon began to stabilize. Dictionaries were still elementary with only a short meaning, synonym or commentary on a ward.it was the grammarians who were still making decisions about language usage. Grammarians had been experiencing within their own ranks for sometime. Many linguistics were afraid that the English would be corrupted, and some expressed the concern that what was being written at that time would would be unrecognizable to future generations.
Feminism is an idea that goes back centuries, and when it became popularized in the early to mid 19th century, many authors of the time took to paper to chronical their beliefs in well-written novels and stories we today consider classics . Author Charlotte Perkins Stetson was an established feminist author who wrote multiple novels and short stories that reflected her belief on the matter of gender equality. One of her more notable pieces was the short story “The Yellow Wallpaper”; a different take on the perspective of women in society. In her story, she uses multiple rhetoric strategies to help establish her bias in an indirect fashion; while obliquely making references from her own life. In order to observe the first rhetoric strategy
It was also very big about individualism. If you read any of Atwood’s poems, you will see that she poses new thoughts and ideas that encourage creative thinking. She not only was influenced by her era, she brought forth an old era. As well as being a post modernist writer, Atwood is also a feminist writer. When she first became well know in the 1970’s, she was considered not just a role model and groundbreaker for Canadian writers, but for female writers as well.
She has secured her prominent presence for what she writes about women, their emancipation, and their role in society, most of all their individuality and sense of self actualization. She is one among other feminist writers of India who have dealt with several burning issues related to women in India almost with urban settings.
Not only by exposing them to the language they will speak, read and write the English language correctly, students must learn and understand the meaning of words. Vocabulary words help any English language learner communicate effectively with any other person. According to Wilkins (1972), “Vocabulary is central to English language teaching because, without sufficient vocabulary, students cannot understand others or express their own ideas.” On the other hand, many teachers recognize the importance of teaching vocabulary and they must emphasize it daily in their lessons. Among many skills, vocabulary in context is one of the most commonly used. To aid vocabulary in context, the use of a Card-file among other strategies may enrich the student’s experience and understanding of what they speak, read, and
