- Damsels In Address - 1,335 words
Damsels In Address It is clearly evident that many fairy tales of childhood tend to shape the reader. Certain moral codes and ideals are tightly woven into the text of many fairy tales, promoting or denoting a characters actions. In the Grimms fairy tales Cinderella, Brier Rose, and Rapunzel, the heroines of these tales exhibit strong behavioral codes, thus providing opportunity for the young female reader to relate to the damsel, or to model herself to behave in a similar fashion. In accordance with Marcia R. Liebermans essay, " Some Day My Prince Will Come: Female Acculturation Through the Fairy Tale," I agree with the assertion that positive traits in fairy tale indicate reward, while the ...

- Finding The Way Back To Me - 1,719 words
Finding The Way Back To Me She struggled to remember how the fight had started. She and Ryan and some friends had been watching a movie and she commented on how cute the lead actor was. "Cuter than me?" Ryan asked. Lizzy jumped into damage-control mode and attempted to diffuse the situation. "Of course not," she replied. "Then why did you say he was cute?" Ryan continued on the attack. "I meant in a different sort of way," Lizzy explained, her voice breaking with each word. She felt all eyes were on them. It was a scene her friends had seen many times, yet they never spoke up, afraid to interfere. Maybe it was because of all the times she had defended him. "He's different when we're alone," ...

- King Lear Family - 703 words
King Lear Family Families arent perfect. When one thinks of fairy tales, he thinks of the perfect princes and princesses living happily ever after, similar to Cinderella finding her Prince Charming.

- The Picture Of Dorian Gray - 868 words
The Picture Of Dorian Gray Art, what is Art? It is an ambiguous matter: without an exact form, an exact meaning. Does it have any rules or restrictions? However, it can be a great influence on the lives of people. In the novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, two lovers have fell in and out of love due to Art! Dorian Gray found Sibyl charming because of her Art! She has not merely art, consummate art-instinct in her, but she has personality also; and you have often told me that it is personalities, not principles, that move the age (63). Sibyl is an actress. She is formed by others: no self is without external influence. Therefore, Art that expresses the self is less valuable than art which expr ...

- The World Of Edith Wharton - 1,547 words
The World Of Edith Wharton The Novelists Life All literary critics and sources that give accounts of Edith Newbold Jones Whartons life seem to agree on the basic facts. Wharton was born in 1862 into a wealthy family and raised during Americas Guilded Age. She was born into the lavish world of inherited wealth, one which she benefited from greatly. This life of luxury provided Wharton with a rich source of material which she used to challenge the attitudes of Americas Guilded Age in her novels (World,p.1). She spent portions of her childhood growing up in places like Paris, Rome, and London, but received most of her education in the United States. Wharton exhibited her talents in writing at ...

Washington Square I'm depressed. Well, how could I not be? I just finished reading Washington Square. I'm happy it's over, but I'm not happy I finished it. No, that doesn't make sense does it? Lets just say, I had a feeling how it was going to end up; I just hoped that I would be wrong. Unfortunately the one time I didn't want to be right I was. Isn't that the way it always works? I guess so. Catherine, dear plain old, Catherine. Poor girl, father thinks she's plain, she thinks she's plain, her aunt thinks she's plain, even the man who she thinks loves her thinks she's plain. Although James erases this thought in the beginning of the book I still believe it, "plain" equals "ugly". I feel so ...
