    I thought that knowing the definition would help find my character, but I feel even more perplexed. They say that you are your own worst critic, and I guess they are actually right. I don 't feel like I fit my name. I don 't resemble the picture of grace or favor. I know for a fact that my name and personality have no correlation, mostly due to the fact that I trip on stairs, wake up looking like I’m half dead, and can’t text and walk at the same time. Needless to say, my identity and name comes…

Anna Karenina was and still is a masterpiece because it incorporates all the elements of humanity such as lustful passions, pride, conflict, marriage, and death. An in depth analysis of Anna Karenina is that it was a heavily controversial novel. Convoluted plot lines, character development, relationships, and social commentary, gave meaning to this novel. The concept of writing this novel came to…

    I found the ending of Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell, to be a satisfying ending. It seemed to wrap things up nicely.

In Anna Lombard, the dynamic of problematic sexuality and desire are enacted in the relationship between Anna and Gerald, and Victoria Cross questions the stringent British views towards gender roles by embedding the female character of Anna with the sexual appetite that is approved of in a male. In Burma, Gerald is told that he must “settle down, take a wife, and live regularly” rather than fretting over a girl abroad (Cross 36). Here the word “regular”…
