Based on the fact that lesbian activity was endemic in British society, from the sleeping arrangements, to night-time invitations being a way for mistresses and ladies to show favor in households and at court , along with the fact that Mary Wroth was the better half of a profoundly unhappy marriage from a young age (Lewalski, 245), it is fairly easy to assume that she participated in, (or at the very least knew about) lesbian activity at some point, to some degree. We know she read Faerie Queen, Arcadia (her own uncle wrote it and homages to him are written all over her work), and watched or read some of Shakespeare’s plays, because she had an excellent education financed by her parents and interacted with her aunt and uncle on a regular basis (Lewalski, 245). This, combined with certain instances and relationships in Urania, seems to suggest that it’s highly improbable she was

In the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there are many similarities between the narrator, Scout, and the author, Harper Lee. For instance, both grew up in the time of the great depression with little money to do extra things; therefore, they relied on their imaginations to entertain them for hours (Haggerty) . Comparatively, both were tomboys in their youths and grew up in small towns where girls were expected to wear dresses and act like a lady. Also, both Harper Lee and Scout both grew up with their fathers being lawyers for their town and would often hear of cases that they worked on (“Harper Lee”) . Similarly, when writing her book a “mad dog warning” was released, no doubt giving the idea for the episode of the mad dog Tim Robinson.
Chopin herself experienced a substantial history of alcohol use and abuse in her family, and she often wrote about this subject in her fiction. Her son was a heavy alcohol abuser whose “marriage ended in divorce because of his drinking” (Toth, Unveiling, 240). Family alcohol abuse also notably inspired Chopin’s other novel, At Fault (self-published in 1890), in which a heroine, Fanny, is described by Lewis Leary as being “hopelessly in the power of drink” (71). Emily Toth has written of the public’s and of critics’ marked failure to understand At Fault’s primary theme. Toth argues that Chopin’s first novel shows a woman drinking as a means of dealing with male oppression in a rigidly patriarchal society (“Kate Chopin on Divine Love” 118-20).
After the release of “The Flapper” the character, Ginger and her mysterious behavior became a hit and thus the age of the flapper was born. Movie star and fashion icons who became committed to this way of life started popping up everywhere. A short time before the twenties Zelda Fitzgerald was seen as an “It” girl. She was from a town in Alabama, her father was part of the supreme court and her family was well known. That being said she would often find ways to push people's buttons, whether that being wearing a tight nude bathing suit just to trick people into thinking she swam naked or just generally be unconventional.
Brucker justifies Hughes as not only a successful writer, but he also “used grant money to establish African American theatrical groups in Harlem and Chicago that produced several of his plays.” (5) After overcoming much criticism by blacks and whites, Langston Hughes influenced several generations of African American authors, and that is widely acknowledged. “Langston Hughes” points out important characteristics of Langston Hughes that I find inspiring. Because Hughes kept climbing and never gave up like his mother advised him, he accomplished very big things that a lot of people do not get to experience. Some of the great things he accomplished were winning an Opportunity poetry prize, using grant money to establish African American theatrical groups, and making
To Kill a Mockingbird has many themes that can affect and relate to any readers. Although the novel is around sixty years old, its important messages still impact readers today. The novel is based on the childhood memories of Harper Lee, the author, during the times of the Civil Rights. In To Kill a Mockingbird the main characters Scout, Jem, and Atticus are greatly affected by the racism going on around them and it shapes them to go against society 's norm, while also informing and inspiring all readers in a variety of ways. First, To Kill a Mockingbird is an informational novel, that could not had been so accurately written if the author, Harper Lee have not lived through those times herself.
The Drag Community, Its Many Supporters, and an Improved Marketing Concept Overview “We're born naked, and the rest is drag,” according to Rupaul Charles in his book, Lettin it All Hang Out. The growing subculture of our nation’s drag community and its supporters, both homosexual and heterosexual, is a passionate group within our society. Most members of the drag community share distinctive sets of exaggerated characteristics, expected interests, similar mannerisms and an affinity for pop cultural references. “Drag” is commonly understood to be a man dressed as a woman. Really the term is more versatile than that.
They created many ideals about what a family should be like. There was also a push to have more intellectuals in society, such as those who were educated. For many there was a desire to help “save” those that needed it but, “they genuinely believed they were doing the right thing, even if it was at the expense of working people and the poor” (McCormick Lecture Slides). After a while, people had begun to see the downturn in the morale of people and the downturn of the city of Chicago itself. To implement changes, many different types of reforms were created to help the people.
