  • The Turn Of The Screw As A Representation Of Victorian Sexual Repression - 722 words
    "The Turn of the Screw" as a Representation of Victorian Sexual Repression L.R.G. "The Turn of the Screw" is largely a representational book. For the most part, I think it stands to characterize Victorian views of sexuality. The entire book seems to be sex related in one way or another. Everything that happens, from Miles being kicked out of school to the governess seeing ghosts, can be interpreted with a sexual connotation. When Miles is kicked out of school, no one says exactly why. After reading the letter from the school, the governess only says that, "he's an injury to others." Because of the indirect nature of this discussion, we are left believing that the reason for his dismissal is ...

  • A Thematic Analysis Of Alfred Hitchcocks Psycho - 1,465 words
    A Thematic Analysis of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho Arts- Movies A Thematic Analysis of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho has been commended for forming the archetypical basis of all horror films that followed its 1960 release. The mass appeal that Psycho has maintained for over three decades can undoubtedly be attributed to its universality. In Psycho, Hitchcock allows the audience to become a subjective character within the plot to enhance the film's psychological effects for an audience that is forced to recognise its own neurosis and psychological inadequacies as it is comp  elled to identify, for varying lengths of time, with the contrasting personalities of the film's m ...

  • Amnesia And Its Causes - 1,104 words
    Amnesia And Its Causes Amnesia, the partial or complete loss of memory, most commonly is temporary and for only a short span of experience. There are both organic and psychological causes for amnesia. Some organic causes include inflammation of the brain, head injury, or stroke. This type of memory loss occurs suddenly and can last a long time. The person may be able to recall events in the distant past but not yesterday or today. If the amnesia is caused by alcohol abuse, it is a progressive disorder, and there are usually neurological problems like uncoordinated movements and loss of feeling in the fingers and toes. Once these problems occur, it may be too late to stop drinking. In contras ...

  • Jane Austen - 1,295 words
    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 ...

  • Polemics On Veiling Egyptian Women In The Twentieth Century - 2,395 words
    ... k Hefni Nassif's opposition to unveiling, her ideas were re-published in 1976 by a writer called Abdel Aal Mohamed El Gabri. The writer selects what to put in the book, and comments on what she says, putting attractive titles that would appeal to a conservative reader such as The Corrupted Morals of the Educated Women, though what is written under this title does not denounce educating women but simply differentiate between learning sciences and being morally disciplined. He would also attract the misogynous type of a reader by a chapter entitled The Misbehavior of Women in which she criticizes some qualities that may be in the woman's character such as ignorance or snobbery.

  • Salem Witch Trials - 1,164 words
    Salem Witch Trials The Salem Witch trials started in 1692 resulted in 19 executions and 150 accusations of witchcraft. This is one of the historical events almost everyone has heard of. It is a topic that is talked about, and can be seen as controversial. A quote by Laurie Carlson shows just how controversial the topic can be. (A) character myth is certainly what the witch hunts in Europe and Salem have become, though they have more basis in fact than most myths. The stories of the witch hunts are character myths for our time, to be told by feminists, left-wing intellectuals, and lawyers for President Clinton, each taking what he or she needs from the story, adding or subtracting as it seems ...

  • 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 ...
