  • Greatest Male Hero
    2,850 words
    The Narrative Of Popular Romance Simultaneously Challenges And Reaffirms Traditional Male-female Rel The theory that popular art as a whole exists to reinforce the status quo and keep its audience happy with it is one that has long been espoused by critics. This attitude is one which was especially championed by the Marxist oriented Frankfurt school of thought led by Horkheimer, Adorno and Herbert Marcuse, who argued that only "high" art could give us a view of a better tomorrow. In her book "Lo...
  • Important Role In Shakespeare's Plays 5
    567 words
    Women in Shakespeare's Plays 1. Appearance and Behavior - women are adorable creatures of sweetness and grace, phantoms of delight - they are angels of purity and they are "good" - they are the most enchanting women in literature and they are beautiful, but Shakespeare could not describe them in detail - their voices are charming, beautiful and well-placed - they seem to exist only in their attachment to others 2.

  • Jennifer Greek Heroine Cults
    727 words
    Larson, Jennifer Greek Heroine Cults. University of Wisconsin Press, 1995.

This comprehensive book details Greek heroin cults and the...

    497 words
    Jane Austen's novels are recognized for their competent heroines. From Elizabeth of Pride and Prejudice to Anne Elliot of Persuasion, Austen's heroines are independent, indomitable, and intellectual. Mansfield Park's protagonist Fanny is viewed in the eyes of countless readers as weak, quiet, and even snobbish. Yet when her accomplishments in the Bertram household are taken into account, Fanny reappears as a deeper figure. Fanny Price, though reserved and sullen at times, aptly presents herself ...

    Comparative Character Analysis of Classical vs. Modern Tragic Protagonists. A hero / heroine is described as the principal male / female character in a literary or dramatic work or the central figure in an event, period, or movement.

  • Sybylla's Mother
    1,300 words
    My Brilliant Career is a classic that is valued not only for its amazing insights into the uncertainties of adolescence but also for its social comments on late nineteenth century society. As a result of the novel being a semi-autobiographical account of Franklin's life, the experiences of the fictional Sybylla Melyvn seem genuinely real. The novel is a bildungsroman that describes the Cinderella-like transition of an awkward, teenager growing up in the country into a blossoming young country be...
