Emily Dickinson is a poetic mastermind who has written many mind twisting poems with great complexity and thought. She was also an advocate for women’s equality as seen in almost every poem in some subtle way. Emily Dickinson tends to include in her poetry the themes of women’s equality, social withdrawal, and individualism; a few poems that reflect her traditional themes are “They Shut Me Up In Prose” and “Much Madness is Divinest Sense”. In the nearly 1,800 poems written by Emily Dickinson, she would give the reader specific and well thought out clues hinting at women’s equality. She usually did so by referring to society as “they” and then following with what society expects of a women.
From women being portrayed as property to enabling women to take a stance on their freedoms. “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin conveys the message of how the married 19th-century woman felt. Chopin provided an insight of how the females were powerless when it came to their independence, how women were joyful about the death of a husband since it was the only way out of a controlling marriage, and the amount of dread that the women endure during a marriage. Mrs. Mallard could signify most of the married women of the 19th century. Chopin’s story displays that women are human just as much as men and that they should not be treated as belongings, but rather as a human, especially in
As she passes Montag, she repeatedly says “poor family” and “everything’s gone”.

Ultimately, Ray Bradbury adequately examines the recurring theme of the repression of authentic human relationships through his use of extensive literary

She is a mother to one too many children, who often misbehave: “…how can they help it with only one mother who is tired all the time from buttoning and bottling and babying, and who cries every day for the man who left without even leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come” (Cisneros 29). This quote describes the struggles and hardships Rosa faced with being left to

This work is powerfully engaged with questions of history, memory and trauma. I have also analyzed African- American woman’s work and their collective experience and struggles such as the case of Pauline Breedlove who toils both at home and also at the Fisher household. But in spite of drudging so hard all day long her husband doesnot recognize her efforts and they share a very troubled married with frequent violent outbursts which has a very negative impact on both their children- Sammy runs away from home most of the time and Pecola becomes a recluse and breaks down mentally, she even wishes to disappear. There are many reasons as to why women and children in The Bluest Eye have a disturbed and traumatic mind .The portrayal of quest for beauty, racism, incest, child abuse, domestic violence and family disputes, inconsiderate parenthood, biological changes like puberty and prostitution in the novel gives us an insight into the various reasons for the malady of the female characters particularly Pecola’s silence almost throughout the novel portrays her gradual regression into

Known for her confessional mode of writing, Kamla Das’s (1934-2009) poetry offers an aesthetic of resistance to the phallocentric codes and conventions. What sets her poetry apart from the other Indian women poets writing in English is the brutal honesty with which she handles the issue of women’s search for subjectivity and autonomy in the face of patriarchal prohibitions. Her choice of a free poetic mode instead of regular metrical form suits her tone of anger and protest resulting from the marginalization of women. However, while hitting out at the deeply entrenched patriarchal prejudices, she does not forget her own femininity. Das’s individuality lies in evolving a new language of protest.
