  • Lacan’s concept of “the Real”: Lacan’s the real is his third order which has two parts to it. On the one hand it consists of the real world for example “the material universe and everything in it. On the other hand it symbolizes what a person really isn’t. The Bressler book describes Lacan’s meaning in […]

  • After reading the two blogs I agree with both Emina and AnnMarie. I agreed with Emina when she wrote that Marxism and New Historicism deal with believing that the time period a text was written in makes an impact on the readers as well as the authors. They also believe that the text itself can […]

  • Cultural Artifacts: 1. Barbie dolls vs. Cars & Tucks: In society we have put up this norm that all girls are supposed to play with Barbie dolls and easy bake oven, while boys are supposed to play with cars, trucks, and anything that has to do with sports. As a society we freak out if […]

  • In class we have been discussing gender roles specifically toward “The Turn of the Screw.” We have discussed the generation differences between the women in the story such as; Mrs.Grose and the Governess. Moving on to gender criticism I began to take a look at the time period in which Henry James wrote this book. […]

  • There are four main women in this story; Mrs.Jessel, Mrs.Grose, the Governess, and Flora. The governess has great respect for Mrs.Grose, but there is a definite difference between these two women. When they receive a letter at home about Miles being expelled the governess begins to read the letter. Mrs.Grose kept asking the governess about […]

  • Question 4:Are there notable characters in the novel who are no longer present? How do you account for the continued importance of these characters? What might they do or inhibit, pyschically, for those characters who remain? There are two notable characters in this book that have passed, but are still a big part of this […]

  • As most of my classmates have mentioned the main theme of Foucault’s panoptic was to portray discipline and punishment to those who didn’t abide by the rules. In Heart of Darkness we see this happening through the whole book. The people are put to work as slaves so that they can do the work for […]

  • During class I was assigned to group number 3 and we were to analyze pages 49-51. As Emina mentioned my group and I came up with two main binaries. As we were reading the passage one of my group members grabbed our attention toward page 51 where we came up with the binaries for our […]

  • Going back to the question that was asked in class about Marlowe I definitely agree with Jose I think Marlowe was a wander and even though he was a seamen he was extremely different from the others. As stated in the text seamen believe that they know all that there is to know about the […]

  • Just wanted to correct my spelling of my classmates name:marissae

  • When I was reading the story the man who almost a man I was on edge the whole entire time. For me there were many horizons of expectations. I think that allowing us to use the reader orienteted aproach really helped me because I got to input my own personal opinion which helped me through […]

  • “The Formalist Critic” by Brooks was definitely right on target when it came to writing about new criticism. This essay helped me clear up my misunderstandings that I had about new criticism. When reading the poems by Emily Dickinson I was so challenged because I didn’t understand how to just use the text. Just like […]

  • Analyzing a poem as a new critic has been a definite challenge. As a few of my classmates have stated it took me more than one reading of the poem to actually begin to understand how to even go about analyzing this poem. New criticism is all about the text and what has been given […]

  • The text I chose is the image of our current president Barack Obama. In this image it seems as if the emotion is very stressful. I can see that by the position of his hand on his head as if he has a headache from all the decisions he has to make as president. This […]
