Karen Hollinger is a professor of English at Atlantic University, an author and is also a very strong feminist. Hollinger’s essay, “The Monster as Woman: Two Generations of Cat People,” is an essay merely expressing how most monsters in novels or films are characterized as masculine identities and that viewers forget how powerful feminine identities in novels and films can be. Hollinger’s goal in this essay is to explain that feminine monsters are just as frightening all masculine monsters. She uses many references to movies with feminine monsters and expresses how powerful they are compared to masculine monsters and also expresses that males and females have castration anxieties. I think Hollinger succeeded in a sophisticated way because she
According to Susan Miller, “the story skillfully weave fact and fiction…gut-wrenching climax.” Alvarez did not know the sisters, only of what they have done. Through their actions, she was inspired to create the character in the book and hopes that she did them justice. This novel is expressed in three segments with four parts told in the sisters’ point of view, except for Dede’s “the sister who survived”. By doing this the author allows us to have a more intimate sense of the lives of these well-known women. “Each of the girls develops her own voice.” (Miller) It also helps give us more of an insight of how the themes are presented throughout the book.
Born in 1810 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Margaret Fuller could easily be considered as one of the greatest American authors today. Her work supported greatly the authentic American literature she constantly tried to help people understand and construct. Along with numerous essays including her feminist essay Women in the 19th Century in 1845 which tremendously helped in the depiction of women in her society at that time, Fuller wrote a short essay entitled “American Literature; Its Position in the Present Time, and Prospects for the Future” in 1846. This essay mainly revolves around Fuller’s point of view on American literature and whether it really does exist and how it impacts the country as a whole. The essay could simply be seen as a

In “Victims and Victimizers in the Fiction of Katherine Mansfield and Jean Rhys”, Jane Nardin argues that Katherine Mansfield fails to follow the modernist style of writing, which approaches issues from a neutral standpoint, when it comes to victim-ization, due to her inability to portray victims and victimizers neutrally. In order to achieve this equality, the faults of the victim and weaknesses of the victimizer must be observable in a text. However Nardin states that Mansfield did attempt to make her victimizers relatable in some stories. An example of such a story would be “The Fly”. In this short story, Katherine Mansfield describes a morning in the life of a man only referred to as the “the boss” who lost his son in World War 1.
“I only feel it’s worth writing a book if I have something important to say,” the author of Animal Dreams stated (Ryan). Throughout the novel, Barbara Kingsolver chooses to include numerous subjects like parental relationships, Native Americans, U.S. involvement in Nicaragua, and most importantly, ecofeminism (Kingsolver, Barbara and Lisa See 46). Based on her book Holding the Line, which covers the great Arizona mine strike of 1983, Codi and her female town friends are devoted to the protection of their homeland ecological system. Because of the role of women and their devotion to the environment, one of the most prominent themes is ecofeminism. Codi’s gradual maturation and love for the environment, Hallie’s strength and bravery, and the women of the Stitch and Bitch club all represent the ecofeminist aspect of the novel.
Although they approached their subject from the same vantage point, that of the Union or Northern Army, both author’s writing styles could not be more different. Melville and Whitman’s family history, personal experiences, professional interactions and literary notoriety all factor into their chosen poetic style and content. The following is a critical analysis of these similarities and differences using select works from Melville’s Battle-Pieces and Aspects of the War and Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. The list of recommended poems is not sufficient to adequately fulfill this requirement. For thoroughness, additional poems
