Anais Nin Anais Nin was a passionate woman, not only in her works but also in her life. The fact that she lived life to the fullest is what made her books so intriguing. Although her diaries were a chronicle of her experience, her fiction showed the reader sides of her while displaying everyone's innermost desires. In her own words Nin says, the role of the writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say (Rollins), and she does exactly that. For this reason her works t

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

Philip Larkin's A Study of Reading Habits, is the ironic difference between slang and formal language. The formal language in the title, implies the poem is about a research paper, possibly about drawing conclusions of people's reading habits. Instead, the poem is the confession of one man whose attitudes toward reading have slowly diminished to the point where books are nothing but a load of crap (543). The poem is not about the man's reading habits, but the reality of his life. The poem i

Not only has it been designated thus; also, as one of the few truly divinely inspired works, one which most men can only marvel at, as they wallow in their appropriate humility. These creations, however, are definitely not the only aspects of entities beyond the scopes of men; there are far more exam

Ernest Hemingway even said in his book The Green Hills of Africa, All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn (Zwick). However, since Twain published Huck Finn 112 years ago, it has been the subject of much criticism, mostly all unfair. The Concord, Ma, banned the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

He often focused on social problems, like the ?haves? verses the ?have nots, and made the reader want to encourage the underdog.
