Lawhead’s writing is superb. He employs an expansive vocabulary to describe his scenes, allowing the reader to visualize what he or she is reading. In The Endless Knot, the main character, Llew, explains how he sees Albion; he says it was “Ablazed with color and light: rich greens of the tree-filled glens and the delicate mottled verdure of the high moors, the dazzling blue of the sun-washed sky, the subtle grays of stone and the deep browns of the earth, the sparkling silver of water, the shimmering gold of sunlight” (The Endless Knot 88). This passage uses colors along with other descriptive words to illustrate the breath-taking scene before him. In The Iron Lance, he describes the sounds the Crusaders hear as they meet the enemy on the battlefield, “…and heard the deep jarring bone-rattling thump of the drums, the strident, sense-numbing blare of the huge, curved battlehorns, and the defiant cries of the warriors as they swept towards them with quickening pace” (The Iron Lance 32).

Releasing Your Spirit In the late nineteenth century, the institution of marriage required that the woman play a less significant role in the union. In Kate Chopin’s short story “The Story of an Hour” and Susan Glaspell’s play “Trifles”, both of the husbands limit the potential of their wives. Given the similar time periods, both stories share analogous ideas about marriage, but still maintain their distinct and unique patterns of events. In both of the stories, the women are contained in their homes and are expected to live the role of women during this period. In “The Story of an Hour”, Mrs. Mallard feels that “there will be no powerful will bending hers” anymore, so unlike previously in her life she is able to freely choose how she wishes to live (Chopin 16).
