  • An Interview With Jane Reynolds About The Depression - 814 words
    An Interview With Jane Reynolds About The Depression The depression of the 1930s was a major event in many American's lives. It left them with little money, and even fewer resources. The country had to bind together to get through rough times, and each person was struggling to live individually. Enter Jane Reynolds, a 76 year old woman whose memories of the depression are surprisingly happy. Her family was very lucky in that her father owned a used car lot in Salt Lake City, a steady job that put food on the table. Jane says she remembers her father had to repossess cars all the time because no one had money to pay for anything. In 1930 Jane and her family moved into her grandparent's house, ...

    Jane Austen EL2 - Essay 2 Angela Bathgate Tutor - Julie Marney 6. How does Mansfield Park interrogate the relationship of power and gender? Mansfield Park by Jane Austen is a classic realist text, which is almost exclusively focused on a small strip of society, namely the upper-middle class of rural England; the class to which she herself belonged. Throughout her novel, Austen portrays the disadvantaged position of woman, presenting the issues of gender stereotyping and marriage choice as the main problems they have to confront. "Gender came to be seen as a construct of society, designed to facilitate the smooth-running of society to the advantage of men"1, proving that men gained power thro ...

    ... s Fanny by teasingly complimenting her looks. He says that she is "worth looking at"1, giving the impression that she is the object if his sexual desire. Edmund also patronises Fanny when he mentions her "beauty of mind"2, as the purpose of emphasising her intelligence is to flatter Sir Thomas for information about his business abroad and the slave trade. Austen is therefore defining the roles of the two sexes, in which men give information and advice to be received by women. This is typical of the patriarchal family, where there is a social hierarchy and 'belief in the gentleman as a leader'3, promoting the figure of the father to an almost God-like status, whilst women occupy a seconda ...

    Jane Austen Quotes The following is from The Explicator, a subscription journal available through Herrick's research databases: Jane Austen's irony is endlessly challenging to those of us who like to grasp just how an author achieves distinctiveness and who then want to tell others what we think we have found. No slight part of her ironic effect stems from her use of the free indirect style (style indirect libre), as Graham Hough,(FN1) among others, has shown. The quote below is from Studies in English Literature, another journal available through Herrick's research databases: If Marianne's later walks at Cleveland do receive a faintly satirical treatment, it is not because she seeks out the ...

  • Jane Austen: Background Of Her Novels - 1,236 words
    Jane Austen: Background of Her Novels First published in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has consistently been Jane Austen's most popular novel. It portrays life in the genteel rural society of the day, and tells of the initial misunderstandings and later mutual enlightenment between Elizabeth Bennet (whose liveliness and quick wit have often attracted readers) and the haughty Darcy. The title Pride and Prejudice refers (among other things) to the ways in which Elizabeth and Darcy first view each other. The original version of the novel was written in 1796-1797 under the title First Impressions, and was probably in the form of an exchange of letters. Jane Austen's own tongue-in-cheek opinion of he ...

Mansfield Park was one of only two of Jane Austen's novels to be revised by her after its first publication, when a second edition came out in 1816 (this second edition was a failure in terms of sales). Emma Emma, published in 1815, has been described as a "mystery story without a murder". The eponymous heroine is the charming (but perhaps too clever for her own good) Emma Woodhouse, who manages to deceive herself in a number of ways (including as to who is really the object of her own affections), even though she (and the reader) are often in possession of evidence pointi ...
