  • Krakauer Believes Chris McCandless
    678 words
    Beautiful Blueberries Christopher McCandless' last journal entry before dying of starvation in the Alaska bush was simply the words "Beautiful Blueberries". Over the previous two years he bought a secondhand canoe on impulse and paddled to Mexico. Then he lived on the streets of Los Angeles with vagrants, camped in the Arizona dessert with hippies, tramped through almost every western state, occasionally holding odd jobs. He also lived completely off the land in the Alaskan backcountry. McCandle...
  • Just Writing Novels
    1,718 words
    A Room of Ones Own In 1928, Virginia Woolf was asked to speak on the topic of "women and fiction". The result, based upon two essays she delivered at Newnham and Girt on that year, was A Room of One's Own, which is an extended essay on women as both writers of fiction and as characters in fiction. While Woolf suggests that, "when a subject is highly controversial-and any question about sex is that-one cannot hope to tell the truth", (Woolf 4) her essay is, in fact, a thought out and insightful r...

  • Van Trees Hinshaw

    the native american indians are very spirit ula people. They hunt bison and buffalo In Indian Blood II, I incorrectly stated that Allan W. Eckert started 'the Blue Jacket War. ' He did not. It seems clear now that Robert Van Trees did. In fact, to call it a war is to mischaracterize this mindless tirade by Van Trees and some of his ardent supporters over a simple academic question: Was Blue Jacket white? Blue Jacket was a Shawnee chief and it is not really important whether he was adopted or nat...
  • Own Life Through Writing
    617 words
    Among the five authors that I have chosen they all relate themselves to the material that they write. The authors that I have chosen are, the poets, Robert Frost and Robinson Jeffers, the prose writers, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman and Willa Cather, and the dramatist, Eugene O'Neil. In all of their writings they have an autobiographical nature that tells the reader about the authors own life. Without the aspects of these authors' lives their writing could differ. This aspect of revealing ones own lif...
  • Cary's Play
    908 words
    Lady Elizabeth Tanfield Cary, Viscountess Falkland Author Paper Due: June 10, 2001 Elizabeth (Tanfield) Cary is an important literary figure worthy of study in the 21st century because she was a rebel with a cause for women's rights, especially within marriage; because she became a rebel with a religious cause; and finally, because she was the first Englishwoman to write and publish a drama, The Tragedy of Mariam (1613). Elizabeth (Tanfield) Cary was born in 1585, was the only child of Judge Sir...
  • Kilbourne's Article
    804 words
    Through the course of Jean Kilbourne's article "Beauty... and the Beast of Advertising", she gives us an array of interesting facts, strong personal opinions, and possible dangers that stem from American advertisement. There were sections of her writing I highly enjoyed, but there were also parts that were too opinionated for my liking. However, all in all Kilbourne wrote an informative article, with a strong voice that keeps the reader interested and thinking. Therefore, I would recommend this ...
  • Gilman's Protagonist And Woolf's Judith Shakespeare
    1,138 words
    Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own and Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wall-Paper focus on the status of women in the history. Both of their works show the repression of women who are unable to express their ideas in a male dominated society. Woolf in A Room of One's own believes women need money and a room of their own to write. Woolf says that women need to be independent from men, and in order to do so women need to have money of their own. Gilman in The Yellow Wall-Paper writes about...
  • Woolf's Writing
    1,059 words
    In Virginia Woolf's passage "A Room of One's Own" Woolf presents her own views on the topic of Women and Fiction. The underlying theme behind Woolf's story is that a woman needs a room of her own and wealth to be able to create art. Woolf uses a style of writing called stream of consciousness, which leads to a certain degree of ambiguity in her writing. However in one paragraph Woolf writes about a simple luncheon, yet in doing so, Virginia Woolf defies the convention of all authors preceding he...
  • Selected Writings Of Gertrude Stein
    1,829 words
    Gertrude Stein is a writer of experimental prose and one of the most original American Modernists. I need to begin by saying that "Three Portraits of Painters" is the creation of an extremely well-educated woman - an American, a Jew, the child of immigrant parents, a lesbian, and a feminist - whose life experience and literary production bridge the Victorian and modern eras. Her two enduring concerns are to portray the experience of woman and to explore what it means to present the fact or act o...
  • De Beauvoir And Woolf
    1,371 words
    A Room of One's Own Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own broke new territory in suggesting that the reason there were very few acknowledged women's writers at this time was because women lead hard lives in comparison to men and that the conditions needed to produce women writers was not conducive for them at this time. Her response was that for women to write literature they must have a room of their own, both literarily and symbolically. This entailed real space and privacy for women to write i...
