The authors and books that I will be covering in this report will be; "The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara, Gettysburg by Stephan Sears, Gettysburg: A Testing of Courage by Noah A. Trudeau, The Battle of Gettysburg by Frank Haskell, The Gettysburg Campaign: A study in Command by Edwin B. Coddington, and Pickett's Charge by George Stewart. First I will begin with a few of the historical facts that I came across during my research for this paper. The Civil War was a war between the Northern and Southern states of the United States of America, because of the many political and disputes between the two regions. The South also known as the Confederates, and the North the Union army. The battle of Gettysburg was one of the most horrendous battles of the Civil War.
Marina Warner’s novel Indigo, published in 1992, is a reworking of the play in which feminine roles are enhanced and analysed in a multiple narrative comprehending the 17th century invasion of a Caribbean island and the fortune of the invaders’ descendents in the 20th century. In contrast to the English colonizers stance of empire building, the two female characters of the novel, Sycorax and Serafine, endeavour to build communities. In this feminine version of The Tempest, Warner shows an alternative way to replace patriarchy and establish the basic tenets of a more-enduring and equalitarian society. Key words: rewriting, feminism, inclusion, empire building, community-building. RESUMO.
The author of “There Is No Word for Goodbye” is Mary Tall Mountain. Tallmountain is a Native American woman who is from Alaska, but she grew up in Oregon with her adopted white family, after her native family and others in her town died of tuberculosis. When she was older, she was educated as a legal secretary and moved to San Francisco. When Mary got to San Francisco, she met a poet whose name was Paula Gunn Allen, and she encouraged Mary to write about her native Alaskan heritage. Tallmountain published seven collections of poems, including “There Is No Word for Goodbye”.
The significance of how women, enslavement, or folklore is revealed within Wide Sargasso Sea. Wide Sargasso Sea is written by Jean Rhys, a Dominican novelist, in 1966, after the law of slavery has been lifted. The book narrates the life of the protagonist, a young girl named Antoinette, whose childhood to adulthood is seen as a catastrophe. Although Antoinette is a white Creole, she often forgets that she lives in a black Creole society. Throughout her life one would notice a pattern that shows the young girl developing the same signs of madness (within the marriage) in her adulthood that she had seen from her mother when she was eleven.
Derrida's The Ear of the Other and Mémoires: for Paul de Man are also used to give an understanding of the best sign of fidelity toward the dead, the mystery of name as a death bearer and the knowledge of finitude. These aspects are going to be applied to Villette and the reviews from Miriam Allott's critical heritage will be helpful in presenting different contemporary responses to this novel. Brontë completed Villette while she was struggling with illness and depression after the profound experience of losing her young sisters and brother. Villette can be considered, in literature, as one of the most powerful and best descriptions of the woes of life and the pain of loss and loneliness. This paper focuses on a Derridean analysis of the way the protagonist, Lucy Snowe, mourns long before and after the death or absence of those she loved.
This was important because in the book, Scarlet fights to change how women are seen in both the south in the book and also in real life. Margaret Mitchell grew up in Atlanta, and disliked the Southerner way of life and it is seen in how she writes the novel, “Gone with the Wind.” In the next couple of Chapters, Scarlet ends up getting married and having a child and also ends up becoming a widower all in about two months time. In the book, since Scarlet is now a widower, she now has to wear black for at least seven years, Scarlet hates this rule and often rebels against this idea that her family is trying to push upon her and her own way of life. This effort of
