1984
1984 The lesson to be learned from George Orwell's 1984 is that an ideal of having a Utopian society will never really work.

In the book 1984, the society in which the people lived was completely opposite to what most people would see as utopia. As defined by the New Scholastic Dictionary the word Uto...

Anais Nin
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...

The Absent Male In Little Women
The Absent Male in Little Women No gentlemen were admitted writes Louisa May Alcott in Little Women to describe the all-female private revue the March sisters perform.

This gender imbalance -- in that there are more female characters than male in Little Women -- is espec...

Virtu And Fortuna
Virtu and Fortuna Virtu and Fortuna Under close scrutiny, The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli is seen to be a mind-baffling construct of many levels of meaning, and, many might say, enigmatically so.

He likes at times to shock his contemporaries... No doubt he succeeds. The important message here, ...

TO KNOW LIFE IS TO SEE DEATH.
