The Absent Male in Little Women
The Absent Male in Little Women No gentlemen were admitted writes Louisa May Alcott in Little Women to describe the all-female private revue the March sisters perform. And as the novel progresses, one cannot help but wonder if this same sentiment does indeed echo throughout the novel, as male characters are conspicuously absent while all the pivotal parts are played by the women characters. This gender imbalance -- in that there are more female characters than male in Little Women -- is espec

There is a very good definition of these wars at the closing of the novel which shows us the levels: I could never agree with either of them.

By that time, some 500,000 allied ground, air, and naval forces—chiefly from the United States, Saudi Ara

Many Americans wanted to bring about an end to it but were unable to come up with a workable plan. Slavery in America stems well back to when the new wor

The things that are used in all literature though, are literary techniques.

Jane Austen Jane Austen expresses her opinion on all this clearly enough by the fact that only her silliest characters have such sentiments (while Mr. Bennet says He is rich, to be sure, and you may have more fine clothes and fine carriages than Jane.

However, Jane Austen does not intend to simply condemn Charlotte Lucas (who finds consolation in her home and her housekeeping, her parish and her poultry, and all their dependent concerns ) for marrying Mr. Collins

They are subject to fear and they tend, on occasion, to rise to heroic greatness. His most explored stories The Illiad and The Odyssey both have characters that exert these characteristics. Although the stories are different, both heroes share similar backgrounds, plights, and triumphs. The heroes of the novels, thanks to the literary prowess of Homer,
