Memory and the Quest for Family History in One Hundred Years of Solitude and Song of Solomon

- Memory and the Quest for Family History in One Hundred Years of Solitude and Song of Solomon Pierre Nora proposes that "the quest for memory is the search for one's history" (289). In their attempt to reconstruct the communal histories of their people, Toni Morrison and Gabriel García Márquez rely heavily on the use of memory as a means to rewrite the history of those oppressed because of race, class and/or gender in a world where historiography has been dominated by the white man. Memory is closely related to the reclamation of identity and history -- both personal and collective....   [tags: One Hundred Years Solitude]

As a love poet, especially when Donne writes vividly on his wife he is very much concerned with his subject (his wife) however he can appear selfish and cold in the more sexual referenced poems. To fully make my point I have studied two poems, which I believe show his character as less self-absorbed as in the sexual referenced poems. This poem is written for his wife and is essentially saying goodbye as he is leaving her 'physically' but arguing that she mustn't be sad of his departure and instead arguing that they are not really parting and each verse is a different 'image' or argument...   [tags: John Donne The Song Essays]

Considering The Waste Land, it is also a good example of Eliot’s use of juxtaposition of a variety of literary elements and mythic traditions blending with modern life. But even so, Eliot’s use of symbols is one of his most profound signatures. Firstly, he greatly symbolizes water, which is a representation of both life and death. For instance, his characters either wait for water to suppress their thirst, or watch a river overflowing a shore, sob for rain to dampen the dry earth, or pass by a still body of water....   [tags: T.

Analysis of King Solomon's Mines and its Undertone of Sexism

- Analysis of King Solomon's Mines and its Undertone of Sexism During the nineteenth century, women were viewed as inferior to men. Men also saw women as prizes as well as possessions. We can see this undertone in the book King Solomon's Mines by H.Rider Haggard. Here, the writer uses Lyn Pykett's essay "Gender, Degeneration, Renovation: Some Contexts of the Modern" as the backbone for the comparison and discussion. As Allen Quartermain and company gets closer and closer to the diamonds, the description of the scenery is very feministic: "For the nipple of the mountain did not rise out of its exact center."(Haggard 101) As someone had pointed out that the map included in the book also has a...   [tags: King Solomon's Mines H.
