William Wordsworth and a Vindication Term Paper

… ¶ … William Wordsworth and "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman" by Mary Wollstonecraft. Specifically, it will compare and contrast the works and discuss how they related to modern culture and society. Wollstonecraft and Wordsworth are both fairly contemporary writers who lived within fifty years of each other and wrote in the Romantic style. While their works seemed topical of the time they were written, it is startling to see how closely they mirror our modern world, especially considering they were written over 200 years ago. This indicates that society and culture will always decry "progress" and change, no matter when or how it occurs.

According to the text, Mary Wollstonecraft was the product of an abusive home, and her sister married an abusive…. [read more]

William Blake Is Usually Classified Research Paper

… Yet she also immediately shifts to likening the phallus to an infant, which of course is a natural progression, considering that childbirth only occurs after copulation. But even so, it is the attitude that Thel takes toward the available reality of sexual experience that is so shocking to us: she seems frankly disinterested. Yet we are not to interpet this necessarily as aversion to sex. Rather, Blake's two subsequent works -- the partial sequel Visions of the Daughters of Albion and the work of religious prose philosophy (with some interspersed poems) The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. In the former, Blake's heroine Oothoon -- whose name suggests Greek words for both "egg" and "goddess" -- is violently raped but who explicitly invokes a prophetic future…. [read more]

Preface to a Vindication of the Rights of Women: A Reflection of Conformity and Rebellion in the Times of Mary Wollstonecraft

From psychology to the physical sciences, the contributions of women to areas of study generally reserved for men have received a great deal of attention as of late. This is primarily because women's contributions to these areas of study have been traditionally ignored or undervalued simply because of the male-dominated societies that characterized most of the world before the twentieth century. In English literature, however, the issue is somewhat more complex. Women have been contributing to literature since its inception. Although they were certainly viewed with suspicion, and had to earn their place in the popular…. [read more]

Role of Woman in Society Research Paper

… ¶ … Role of Women in Society

The role women should hold in society is a topic that is debated with increasing vigor as time progresses. There was a time when women did not question their roles. Women occupied their place in daily activities without question. Women were the keepers of the home, the wives of their husbands, and the mothers of their children. While women still hold those roles, the patriarchal paradigm has undergone some change. Now, women do not always limit themselves exclusively to household duties. Now, women are an active force in business and the government, as well as in the home. However, despite the fact that women have demonstrated their great value in all levels of society, there are those who…. [read more]

Duality Jonathan Swift and Mary Wollstonecraft Term Paper

… Duality

Jonathan Swift and Mary Wollstonecraft were both consummate social commentators on the duality of power and oppression. Through the analysis of two of their works, namely, Swift's a Modest Proposal and Wollstonecraft's a Vindication of the Right of Women one can see an easy assimilation of the challenges that such minds made to the disproportionate balance between the powerful and the oppressed. In fact each offers a differing view of the powerful as the greatest evil in the world. Swift through sarcasm, indicting the wealthy and powerful as mock heartless and capable of almost anything to retain control, and Wollstonecraft by directly annihilating the wealthy and powerful for openly subjugating fifty percent of the human population (women) as a measure of fashion and power….

Mary Wollstonecraft "Freedom, Even Uncertain Essay

… 1978). With this equal treatment women can enter any profession and have careers just the same as men.

The most radical of all theories by Mary Wollstonecraft was proposing that boys and girls should be educated together; such an idea was never brought forward before. The idea of co-educational schooling was simply regarded as nonsense by many educational thinkers of the time (Taylor, et al. 1983). It was a fashionable belief that if women were educated and not docile, husbands would lose any power they had over their wives. Mary Wollstonecraft was furious about this and maintained that 'This is the very point I aim at. I do not wish them to have power over men but over themselves'.

Mary Wollstonecraft preferred co-educational day schools,…. [read more]

Austen, Eliot, Besant, Browning: 19Th Century Views of Marriage and Property Essay

… ¶ … Marriage in 19th c English lit

To a certain extent, England owes its national identity in the modern period to issues of marriage: it was over marriage policy that Henry VIII would break with Rome and establish his own church in the sixteenth century, and the Church of England's denial of sacramental status to marriage led to a large-scale literary attempt (whose results are evident in works as disparate as Spenser's "Epithalamion" to Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing") to find a cultural meaning for marriage when the religious meaning had been radically redefined. By the nineteenth century, however, the religious debate over marriage had largely been subsumed by a legal one (with extensive parliamentary wrangling over the status of married women's property rights,….

Shared Rhetorical Strategy in 19Th Century British Fiction and Non Essay

… 19th c Prose, Fiction and Non-Fiction

One crucial way in which English fiction and English non-fiction prose in the nineteenth century do inform each other is in the development of the grotesque as a rhetorical mode. Although "grotesque" is a somewhat loose critical category, it is nonetheless common in critical discourse in the period and since, and generally refers to the exaggeration of unnaturalness, ugliness, or strangeness, usually pushed to an effect quite near comedy. Certainly the grotesque in nineteenth century English literature more generally is observable as an emergent mode -- to turn, in poetry, from Wordsworth to such later works as Tennyson's "Saint Simeon Stylites," Browning's "Caliban Upon Setebos," or the Death's Jest-Book of Thomas Lovell Beddoes is to witness the emergence of….
