well someone was bound to say it
i am so bored and it's just making me moody and horrible
like that one. RUBBISH! Poor you - bad questions equal bad answers.
it is shite. what use is a question with a constituent part that tells you how you're supposed to answer it? It takes all the fun that there may or may not have been away from writing the essay!
was she wasn't
you know, the famous quote about her not being a bird in a cage, but a woman with my own thoughts and feelings or something.
all the houses she's in, the bedrooms, etc
(i read it years ago.. I can't properly remember it.)
I'm going to procrastinate on MY essay to try and do yours...
Right at the beginning Jane can't go for a walk- confined. See also the Red Room (which can also be seen as being confined in her womanhood cos the red room apparently stands for her first period).
Breaks free by the end because she doesn't go to India with evil St. John- a place where she would be contained cos she'd die there and thus couldn't leave. Her refusal to let him confine her in that place represents her freedom.
You'll probably have to put something in about Bertha being confined in the attic as well. Blah.
And mention The Womb. Always goes down well with English tutors...
What strategies did female authors use to assert themselves as playwrights?
Bah. One of my points is that one of the strategies was, erm, writing plays...
And so to work. :(
are you doing? i cant think of any female playwrights
Are you talking Aphra Behn? The playwright who wrote the rover? Look her up, I think sexually ambiguous pen names might have been one method. I also think Behn and The Rover fit your dates.
Jane Eyre is where all this woman needing to be suppressed and controlled in literature business started. If you think of the original wife of the male character she's gone mad - she symbolises the desirous woman, unable to control her urges or be controlled by others so she must be locked away where society doesn't have to see or deal with her. Jane represents the chaste woman. The phrase Mad woman in the attic comes from Jane Eyre. Wishpig you should find a book on the mad woman in the attic (forgot the author/s) and it'll unlock alot of questions about the novel for you.
Behn, Pix, Centlivre, Margaret Cavendish and many more. Might actually read them today...
"What is the significance of the orangutan in "murder on the rue morgue"? what links are there to the detective?" SIGNIFICANCE OF TEH MONKEY THAT IS THE MURDERER? is that a stupid question?
