Lillian Eileen Doherty is Associate Professor of Classics, University of Maryland, College Park. Praise / Awards "Applying an elegant blend of narratological and audience-oriented analytic strategies, Doherty argues that, for the late twentieth-century woman reader (as well as the male reader of lower-class status), the Odyssey must be considered a problematic text. In contrast to the bulk of Greco-Roman literature, it assumes the presence of females in its implied audience and offers them positive subject positions with which to identify--those of privileged, intelligent women like Penelope and Arete. Yet, by restricting the narratological operations of such 'good' women to the secondary function of
Tiffany Carr Professor Skelton English 1302 7, May 2012 Analysis of [I like to see it lap the miles]: What exactly is it? Riddle me this one might say. In Emily Dickenson’s poem, [I like to see it lap the miles] there is a riddle inside itself. She uses words that can easily represent something other than what she is actually writing of. The connection between a word and what it is describing is tested throughout her poem.
Like most of her songs, Scar is about the explanations of emotions she has experienced in her romantic relationships. She writes about how she changes herself in order for her partners to be satisfied. Scar is written from Missy’s own perspective and is most likely based on her past experiences. The fact that she is writing in first person makes a unique impact on the audience, as using very personal language makes the ideas and emotions easier for the audience to relate to. I believe this song is about her reactions to her relationships and over the course of this song she tries too hard to match her partner’s aspirations.
Richard Wright’s criticism is right in the ballpark and I completely agree with it. In this book there was no central theme or idea, not one considerable humanistic thought or implication. This book did contain some good situations to learn from but nothing that persuades or changes the reader’s view, let alone life. A good fictional book has all of these qualities and more, something to make the reader doubt what they knew before, to make them question human thought and behavior and to make them learn or believe in a cause pointed out in that book. This is a fun dramatic story that lets the audience laugh and cry with Janie and her friends, but fails to deliver in the way of explaining the characters actions through the analysis of human nature.
I found it interesting that when it comes to women's sexuality, the cultural focus tends to be on those who do not have the ability to, or easily can orgasm. So watching three women who suffer the exact opposite sexual dysfunction was interesting. “Persistent Sexual Arousal” syndrome. A few questions I have... when Jeanie was receiving electric shock treatment to alleviate her “pulsations”, however during the process she admits that she is a “wuss” when it comes to painful sensations. From the description of these women’s experience in their constant arousal, I would assume that after a while the uncomfortable feeling of not being able to alleviate the sensation would end up being somewhat painful.
“and he walked out,/ slow and steady,/ and so calm,/ so calm.” The repetition and alliteration emphasises the positive thoughts she had towards him and the connection they were sharing. Billy’s relationship with Caitlin which ends up been a love relationship, helped him in bitter times. For example, when he had to leave Bendarat. “Only town/ I’ve wanted to call home/ and Caitlin….”.Ellipsis is used to show the unbearable thought of leaving Caitlin and a place where he found a sense of
She also uses rhetorical devices to make the reader think about the situation as well as being involved. Cayte Williams changes the tone again, when she refers to Jane Horwood's experiences. Sunbed-tanning is rendered a dangerous addiction, especially with the mention of smoking and anorexia. In social circles, smoking and anorexia are probably the most 'frowned upon'. The dangers of smoking and anorexia both are very perilous, and to be connected with 'harmless' suntanning 'shocks' readers.
Multi-Cultural Experience Paper By: Aquetta Stewart February 7, 2011 PSY 400: Social Psychology Instructor: Dr. Julee Poole Multi-Cultural Experience Paper A multi-cultural experience can be a positive or negative learning experience. Some researchers have found that multicultural experiences enhance creativity and insight learning. [Multiculturalism is a term often used to describe societies with a proliferation of different cultures] (, 2010). Every individual will have at least one multicultural experience in his or her life. This experience can be as minimal as a trip to the grocery store or as major as performing for a group of individuals from many other cultures.
If women’s grades decline in STEM, economics, or other quantitative fields, women often switch majors to pursue more forgiving humanities degrees. However, since STEM majors usually command the highest median salaries, women are missing out on future earning potential (10). To that end, in “Embrace the B’s”, Catherine Rampell uses research studies to evoke her audience’s thoughts and attitudes toward affecting change in these disciplines, while continuing the larger conversation regarding gender inequality. First, the author helps
