  • Kate Chopin - 1,164 words
    ... aced with another death. In June 1885, her mother had died. Chopin was literally prostrate with grief (Unger 207). In later years, Chopin's daughter would sum up the effect upon her mothers character: When I speak of my mothers keen sense of humor and of her habit of looking on the amusing side of everything. I dont want to give the impression of her being joyous, for she was on the contrary rather a sad nature I think the tragic death of her father early in her life, of her much beloved brothers, the loss of her young husband and her mother, left a stamp of sadness on her which was never lost(Unger 207). Chopin began writing fiction very seriously in 1889. No one knows exactly why she t ...

  • Kate Chopin - 491 words
    Kate Chopin was an incredibly talented writer of the late 1800's. Kate wrote about real feelings and real issues. Few of the topics thatshe wrote about were spoken of. Kate Chopin became one of the best known and most controversial writers of the 19th century. She stood up for women, their rights and other real issues, no matter what the cost was to her reputation. Kate Chopin was born, Katherine O'Flaherty, on February 8,1851, in St. Louis Missouri. She was raised by women for most of her childhood. Kate grew up, married, had kids and was widowed by her husband who died of malaria. It wasn't until the death of her husband that she moved back to her birth place (St. Louis), and began to writ ...

  • Kate Chopin The Stor - 1,156 words
    In Kate Chopin's short story "The Storm", the narrative surrounds the brief extramarital affair of two individuals, Calixta and Alce. Many critics do not see the story as a condemnation of infidelity, but rather as an affirmation of human sexuality. This essay argues that "The Storm" may be interpreted as a specific affirmation of feminine sexuality and passion conjoined with a condemnation of its repression by the constraints of society. If one is to attempt to interpret "The Storm", it becomes necessary to examine the conditions surrounding the story's genesis. The story was written in 1898, very shortly after Chopin had completed "The Awakening", "the boldest treatment so far in American ...

    ... ng her inner emotions. Calixta and Alce move to a window to watch the storm, and when lightning strikes nearby, Calixta staggers backward into Alce's arms, and for a moment he draws her "close and spasmodically to him" (p210). Alce has apparently not, until this point, sensed the passion that Calixta feels: "The contact of her warm, palpitating body when he had unthinkingly drawn her into his arms had aroused all the old-time infatuation and desire for her flesh" (p210). Chopin presents both Alce and Calixta as sexual beings, but she is clearly focusing on the sexuality of her feminine protagonist: Her lips were as red and moist as pomegranate seed. Her white neck and a glimpse of her fu ...

  • Is Kate A Shrew - 367 words
    In the beginning, Kate appears to be quite a shrew. However, this is due to her father's treatment of her. Kate is not a shrew; she has merely put on a shrew-like act to cover up the humiliation and embarrassment that her father has caused her. Her father seems as though he wishes to be rid of her, and will pass her off to any man willing to marry her, without regard for her own feelings. He will not allow Kate's sister Bianca to marry until he has ensured that he will be rid of Kate, even though Bianca has more than one suitor. Lucentio is the suitor that ends up marrying Bianca. Their relationship takes a turn at the end of the play, when Petruchio makes a wager that he has a more obedient ...

  • Criticism Of The Storm By Kate Chopin - 643 words
    While it has traditionally been men who have attached the "ball and chain" philosophy to marriage, Kate Chopin gave readers a womans view of how repressive and confining marriage can be for a woman, both spiritually and sexually. While many of her works incorporated the notion of women as repressed beings ready to erupt into a sexual a hurricane, none were as tempestuous as The Storm. Kate Chopin was a woman whose feminist viewpoints were far ahead of her time, which of course garnered her more than her share of criticism. In a time when women were expected to behave "properly" and sexual desire was considered to be something only experienced by men, Chopin spoke with exceptional openness ab ...

  • Kate Chopin's Controversial Views - 1,773 words
    Too strong a drink for moral babies, and should be labeled 'poison'." was the how the Republic described Kate Chopin's most famous novel The Awakening (Seyersted 174). This was the not only the view of one magazine, but it summarized the feelings of society as a whole. Chopin woke up people to the feelings and minds of women. Even though her ideas were controversial at first, slowly over the decades people began to accept them. Kate O'Flaherty Chopin was raised in St. Louis in the 1850's and 1860's. Chopin had a close relationship with her French grandmother which lead to her appreciation of French writers. When she was only five Chopin's father, Thomas O'Flaherty died leaving her without a ...

  • The Story Of An Hour By Kate Chopin - 470 words
    In Kate Chopin's short story "The Story of an Hour," there is much irony. The first irony detected is in the way that Louise reacts to the news of the death of her husband, Brently Mallard. Before Louise's reaction is revealed, Chopin alludes to how the widow feels by describing the world according to her perception of it after the "horrible" news. Louise is said to "not hear the story as many women have heard the same." Rather, she accepts it and goes to her room to be alone. Now the reader starts to see the world through Louise's eyes, a world full of new and pure life. In her room, Louise sinks into a comfortable chair and looks out her window. Immediately the image of comfort seems to st ...

  • Kiss Me Kate, The Taming Of The Shrew And Ten Things I Hate About You - 1,602 words
    Choose one of the various film versions of The Taming of the Shrew, the musical Kiss Me Kate or the recent film Ten Things I Hate About You, and critically evaluate the success or otherwise of this film as an appropriated text. The 1953 film of the musical Kiss Me Kate is successful in many aspects as an appropriation of the Shakespearian play The Taming of the Shrew. These include: the transmission of Kiss Me Kate from the live Broadway musical to the film version; and the clear portrayal of the play The Taming of the Shrew onstage, and the mirrored story backstage. Other successful features are: the contribution of song lyrics which add clarity to the plot; and the fact that the score can ...

  • Analysis Of "the Story Of An Hour" By Kate Chopin - 1,156 words
    I wrote my paper on The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin. On the following pages, you will read about a character by the name of Louise. She was married at a time when marriage was not about mutual love. When she hears of her husbands death, she feels sorrow but is overcome with feelings of joy. Louise has found a freedom that she had forgotten she had. Louise is so excited to live her new life until tragedy happens again. I believe that Louise is a likeable character because she brings so much depth into the story. She takes us on a roller coaster of emotions. At first, you cannot help but pity her and then all of a sudden you wish you could feel like she does. I found Louise to be an exampl ...

Approximately two thousand hunters and cowboys annually visited Ft. Griffin. Their money and existence attracted gamblers and prostitutes alike, quickly giving Ft. Griffin the reputation as the craziest town in Texas. Docs stay was cut short when he was again arrested for gambling which was more than likely, a sign of showing a newcomer unwelcomeness rather than upholding the law. Holliday got the point and swiftly left Fort Griffin. John finally reached Denver in the summer of 1875. He assumed the alias of Tom Mackey in order to start a new life an ...

    The best movie i have ever seen is" Titanic". The reasons i like it so much are the grand scenery and the romantic content.

  • The Awakening - 803 words
    When faced with the question of "which novel did I have the greatest reaction to this semester?", the first story that came to mind was The Awakening. Although written from the perspective of a woman, I found that this story rendered my greatest emotional appeal. It is a story of a woman, Edna Pontellier, who transforms herself from an obedient housewife to a person who is alive with strength of character and emotions that she no longer has to suppress. The metamorphosis is shaped by her surroundings. It is the narrow minded view of society in Victorian times that makes this story possible. Just as her behavior is more shocking and horrifying because of her position in society, it is that ve ...

  • Fantasy Story - 321 words
    Thinking that it maybe was about time for something not so spectacular, I grabbed this book by Iain Not-M Banks while I was at the bookstore (getting The Naked God). Good thing. Even with it's high finance setting and international business milieu, The Business is the most quiet and laid back book I've ever read by Banks. This is mostly because of the main character Kate Telman, who's just so nice, and warm and understandable that it's nearly too much. But only nearly, Banks keeps her well in line and makes her tell her story, in just about the best possible way that the story can be told. Kate is a lever three executive (level one is the top) in the company called The Business. Now that may ...
