Her claim was to argue the problems of how women are supposed to be seen as thin, long hair, and busty. She dismisses that argument as she focuses on her past problems that end up coming out as anger and just nagging. Also, reveals her own problems with her own race. Her bias is revealed as she called the man a “redneck” and called herself a “nigga,” as she stoops down to her offenders’ level. Her unsupportive argument is not to prove the misconceptions of what makes a woman a woman, really her arguments about her own anger and aggression towards her past.
The sooner people accept that we are all human, the better. Moving on, the author’s style was unusual, criticizing, and degrading, and the tone was less than likeable. However, it was a direct approach to displaying human faults and how people turn the other way rather than acknowledge them. Lady Montagu, clearly took offense to Swift’s poem and so, wrote her own riposte to put him down for writing such an unflattering poem. She certainly did not “pass in silence without matching wits”(292) with Swift.
Disability Revisited Criticizing misrepresentation in media is much like complaining that a desert is too dry; completely obvious and there’s not too much you can do about it. To voice her frustrations, Nancy Mairs composes a very blunt, matter-of-fact, somewhat satirical, essay scolding media for their portrayal of the disabled. Although her position is understandable, her approach in the essay is slightly jumbled. Mairs tends to use too many different emotions to relay information and her opinions to her audience. As an introduction, Mairs attempts to gain sympathy and personal connection with her readers by describing her physical disabilities due to MS (multiple sclerosis).
This influenced her greatly and got her started on a bad track in life. She made bad choices and could of made better choices by moving with her parents or staying at a steady job where she wasn’t selling herself for money. The fact that she was colored
In The Scarlet Letter, Hester’s alienation is presented through the harsh treatment she receives before she is even introduced in the novel. Through Hawthorne’s shifting narrative perspective in Chapter 3, readers are given an indication of the dislike felt towards Hester for her sin. Hawthorne presents readers with the perspective of the women in society to reveal the amount of hatred and subsequent isolation that Hester will experience once she is released from prison. Furthermore, the constant use of negative descriptions such as “malefactress” and “naughty baggage” (Chapter 2) by the women of Boston society provide further evidence to show the Hester’s exclusion from the Puritan community as she
Leiva 1 Lesly Leiva Professor Harmon American Literature May 10,2015 The Silent Feminist Women have always been dehumanized in many ways since the beginning of time, seen as objects and for one whole purpose, to reproduce. Men started to get threatened by women intellectuality and started to make activities like writing into a man duty. Men started to see women with these problems, they looked for any reason to put down these women even more. Another excuse to show how weak woman really “are”, and instead of helping these mothers they made it worse. Instead of supporting women's advancement they suppressed it maybe not directly but by criticizing and not supporting the women who tried to speak out.
This not only compels the readers to see the lack of common sense by which these people are trying to achieve, but to completely view them as people who pose as a stain of society. This element of their nuisance is enhanced by the use of words “bludgers” and “hippies” by which label them as lazy, freeloading parasites who are unable to move on with society and regress into useless human beings. The attack continues with the words ‘activists’ and ‘liberationists’. These words imply there is a hidden, unclear agenda by which these people are trying to achieve and more importantly how. This appeal to fear causes the audience to question the behaviour of these people creating a sense of fear and doubt.
she demonstrates the absurdity of the men of the industrial era’s repeatedly and calls attention to the erroneous and backwards thinking of the times through comedic satire. A powerful example of such satire from Howe's speech is in her introduction. she sarcastically proclaims “woman suffrage is the reform against nature” and continues to point out the ladies present in the crowd and their physical, mental and “general debility”. she sarcastically demonstrates the “debilities” of women to a point which they couldn’t possibly mark a ballot or drop it in a box and continues to lay on the sarcasm as the possibility of a woman completing such a simple and menial task is impossible because “all nature is against it. the laws of man cry out against it.
These topic choices come from truthful circumstances, but readers generally really sympathize with Plath because of her suicide and what led her to it. So, we readers in turn often see even more than what she intended for us to see. Plath could not take herself out of her writing. She could not write outside of her own perspectives or circumstances. She knew this about herself and was highly criticized for it.
‘Creative metaphor are those which a writer/speaker constructs to express a particular idea or feeling in a particular context’ Examine how Plath uses metaphor in Lady Lazarus. Plath uses metaphor in her ‘confessional’ poem Lady Lazarus in order to convey her emotional, physical and psychological struggle with depression. The poem could be interpreted as her attempt to understand or give voice to her suicide attempts. ‘Metaphor is important because of its functions- explaining, clarifying, describing, expressing…’ Plath uses metaphors not only to express her mental struggle, but also the reactions of others to it. She highlights through imagery the lack of willingness and understanding people show and their ignorance when it comes to mental health issues.
