Accessorizing Clarissa: How Virginia Woolf changes the clothes and the character of her lady of fashion Mark Gaipa When we peer into the origins of Mrs. Dalloway and reflect upon the first words Virginia Woolf wrote about Clarissa Dalloway’s day, we encounter a small but vexing problem that has the potential to alter how we think about the published novel. The problem concerns a specific word Woolf uses in the opening line of her short story “Mrs. Dalloway in Bond Street,” which she wrote in the summer of 1922 before she realized Clarissa’s story would become a book.1 As readers of Woolf know quite well, that first sentence, “Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the gloves herself,” provides the very line Woolf would use to start the novel – with the exception of the word “gloves,” which Woolf would replace with “flowers.” And anyone who has read these two texts side by side has undoubtedly felt how consequential this substitution is: as we move from story to novel, the new purpose for Mrs. Dalloway’s trip to Bond Street seems part of a broader change that Clarissa’s character has also undergone, from snobbery to sympathy. I will have much to say in this essay about Woolf’s removing Clarissa’s gloves in her novel, but the word in the story’s first line that troubles me is not “gloves” so much as the one that follows it – “herself.” Quite simply, what meaning can this word have – along with the sentence in which it appears, “Mrs.

Montgomery goes against some of the 1900’s society beliefs on women and she seems to try to inspire the reader to be a woman like Anne. Even though the novel goes against society beliefs on women, in the end she preserves the most important values in women such as family, responsibility and home. To understand why Anne of Green Gables is a feminist novel, it is essential to look at the time when the novel was written. Montgomery published the book in 1908 and as Robinson explains in her essay: Negotiation in Nineteenth-Century Popular Girls' Stories, that time was “a historical period riven with contradictory messages about the role of women” (115). In the book Framing Our Past: Constructing Canadian Women's History in the Twentieth Century, the authors establish “Women were not treated as equally as man and they had no rights until 1918.
In the course of arguing for this conclusion, Thrasymachus makes three central claims about justice. 1.Justice is nothing but the advantage of the stronger (338c) 2.Justice is obedience to laws (339b) 3.Justice is nothing but the advantage of another (343c). There is an obvious tension among these three claims. It is far from clear why somebody who follows legal regulations must always do what is in the interest of the (politically) stronger, or why these actions must serve the interests of others. Scholars have tried to resolve these tensions by emphasizing one of the three claims at the expense of the other two.
Wide Sargasso Sea, a prequel to Jane Eyre emphasizes the role of Betha as the legacy coming from the epicenter of the empire’s post-colonial time. The very “mad woman in the attic” in Bronte’s novel set in England, becomes the main character, with her own history, linage, home and most importantly her real name Antoinette in Rhys’ book, set in Jamaica. Contrary to Jane who was brought up as an orphan, Antoinette gets her mother’s rejection. With Annette’s calm, and cold demeanor, she pushes her daughter away that Antoinette reads it, “as if she had decided once for all that I was useless” (11). Ultimately Antoinette has a fate quite similar to her mother.
Marilynne Robinson’s novel Housekeeping Introduction In this paper, it will be discussed Marilynne Robinson’s novel Housekeeping, and a literary criticism relying on secondary sources to explore the work of this novelist. Housekeeping is the story of Ruth and Lucille, two sisters who, after their mother's suicide, cared for by a succession of female relatives, finally and most unconventionally by their mother's youngest sister, Sylvie, a wanderer who returns home to attend to her nieces with a peculiar notion of housekeeping. Sylvie's unorthodox mothering--fanciful, impractical clothes; late-night suppers in the dark; a house overrun with newspapers, small animals, and leaves--inspires the conventional Lucille to abandon aunt and sister for a more traditional life with the Home Economics teacher and eventually induces the townspeople to attempt to remove Ruthie from her aunt's iconoclastic care. It is the threat of separation that forces the pair across the bridge. "It is a terrible thing to break up a family," Ruthie offers as an explanation for their flight from civilization; her statement is as well Robinson's articulation of her deviation from the myth of the unencumbered American hero.
