Rogers states, “Magical realism is a distinctive form of fiction that aims to produce the experience of a non-objective world view.” Rogers wants a movie that is not common and defies the rules of real world reality.

Gossip and hearsay are employed in Much Ado to deceive characters into revealing their true selves in order to promote social peace or breed conflict, to validate or vilify love, and to challenge the reputation and authority of characters. Patricia Meyer Spacks’ Gossip reflects on the use of gossip and hearsay in literature to impel plots by illuminating the psychological and social dynamics of love.

Duffy’s Feminism and Dramatic Monologues: A Study of Some Poems from The World’s Wife. Yasser K. R. Aman, Minia University, Egypt. Abstract This research aims at investigating Carol Ann Duffy’s representation of feminist issues by recalling historical, religious and mythological figures using the dramatic monologue. Duffy subverts feminine archetypes through a series of dramatic monologues in her volume The World’s Wife whose structure is based on an eclectic mixture of influences that build up intertextual and metatextual webs reflected in themes of love, as well as the loss of love, sexist oppression, sadness and loneliness, and many others. Be it noted that The World’s Wife shows difficulties, set by a patriarchal society, in the way of women as well as men.
We will analyse, in this essay, the differences as well as the similarities which exist between Jane Eyre and Incidents in the life of a slave girl written by herself. We will see that they differ in terms of genre, the period of history in which they find themselves, the way the characters are presented and so forth. However, they share some of the main values concerning womanhood, race and some other aspects of life which they both treat in different ways and yet they do so in a specific aim. Charlotte Brontë and Harriet Jacobs present to us two texts which are both based in totally opposite moments in history.
