I feel very great being born as a woman. Have you ever experienced the elegance of womanhood? Dressing up like men and projecting oneself as woman doesn’t go hand in hand. You could be a fashion freak, smelling of Nina Ricci, or all decked up in Yves St. Laurent, but I personally feel, to project a feminist way i.e., the woman in you, you need that wow factor within you. That is when one can be truly beautiful, elegant, gorgeous, attractive and all the million descriptive words for women.
The novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James is a spooky masterpiece that uses repetition throughout the story. Beauty is an example of a word that is continually used, so it is memorable to the story. Whether James is referring to the children, the governess, the master, or their property, beauty is an adjective that is frequently used, so this suggests that looks are important throughout this story. The governess is a young women who radiates with beauty and is infatuated with the master because of his handsomeness (most likely the reason she took the job). Of the children, the governess first meets the little girl, Flora.

Wordsworth has portrayed the woman as a creature perfectly crafted by employing various poetic devices and through symbolism. In the poem, the woman has been depicted in an angelic light and has been spoken of with great admiration that the reader is made to feel that the woman is indeed a delusion of the persona in the poem. Through the use of explicit words and statements the poet describes the woman as someone perfect and makes the reader go through the feeling of bewilderment. When the persona calls her “A dancing shape, an image gay, To haunt to startle and waylay.” We get to know how mesmerised and utterly confused the persona is by the woman. The persona first describes the woman as someone so extraordinary that she seems like an image
It wrinkles too quickly, and what are you going to look like after seven real kisses" (94)? Much like artificial silk, Doris 's once "comfortable" life status is quickly wrinkled by the troubles Doris has with the men in her life. Troubles that become even worse once she turns to prostitution as a way to support herself. Many conservatives would be lamenting for the morality of times past as they read this novel, for the ruination of an innocent, but von Trotta would instead see a very modern young woman who 's main fault in life is that she is too human in a time where women were not expected to be "human," but instead, fall neatly into stereotypical categories that came with a predetermined set of rewards and consequences. She would applaud Doris 's candor and her determination to make it through, no matter what life throws at her.
Honestly, my granny is the most entertaining person I know. She’s not young anymore and she just is carefree at the age she is now. No other women can compare to her uniqueness. She’s the friend I will never physically have, she always gives the best advice. Just like my mother, my grandmother has the biggest heart.
