    The poem “Her Kind,” written by Anne Sexton, is like a walk down the speaker’s memory lane; a dark and twisted memory lane. Anne Sexton, an American poet, was born in Newton, Massachusetts in 1938 and at a point in her life she suffered from a mental breakdown; and eventually committed suicide (815). Sexton’s poem is written about the speaker’s past self and experiences; we could assume that the speaker of the poem is actually her.

The poem seems to highlight the speaker’s personal experiences and attitudes, which gives the poem a significant and friendly tone. The readers do not know much about the speaker except that she is a woman and they can understand why the speaker’s life has been everything but normal. The poem “Her Kind” consists of three stanzas, each of which observes a different aspect of a woman and also, the speaker’s personal progression and experiences of these different characteristics.

The word “I” attaches the readers to the speaker of the poem. The speaker immediately starts talking about and emphasizes on being a witch: a “possessed”, “lonely”, and “twelve-fingered” witch. With the word “possessed,” Sexton is proposing that at times a woman can be infatuated; meaning that from time to time, a…

    When does an insignificant name of a character that cannot even be remembered by the protagonist become so important, that it centralizes the entire tale to the point that if the name is not mentioned the tale will not be a tale? The closest answer to this question could be found in Ludwig Tieck tale “The fair haired Eckbert”. The apparently dull life of Eckbert and his wife Bertha, both of whom seem to be content with their current lifestyle of isolated protection from society, comes crashing…

    Carole King and Carly Simon are two of very few female individuals who played critical roles in the popular music scene from the 1950s-1970s. As young women, King and Simon were limited by the social norms of relationships between men and women and stereotypes and expectation for women. While they came from dissimilar backgrounds that yielded different paths to success, it was the claiming of their independence as artists and women that helped them come into their own and allowed them to create…

    feminine picture that women are supposed to fit. They are strong and powerful and do not necessarily fit into gender roles.

The idea of gender roles often carries over to the fight women must make to earn their place in the business world. While women in business have made massive ground, there is still a level of work. Women in business are constantly fighting for equality in business. One…

    3 candidates in particular have been in the spotlight when it comes to the dynamics of men and women in high power positions--Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina, and Donald Trump. Each have been in the forefront of national news but under differing judgments derived from their gender and their ability to embody the models of their own gender sphere. A arbitrary judgment of Hillary Clinton’s ability to lead was plainly made on on April 16, 2015 by Trump when a tweet was shared on his account that…

    First off, I am going to be using Bell Hooks’ story “Dig Deep: Beyond Lean In” to support and back-up my own argument. I am going to go back to my first paragraph about Sandberg, where I said that she thinks that men are currently running the world in today’s society. First off, men are not currently running the world in today’s society. Yes, more men are involved in leadership roles than women are, but you cannot just come out and say men are currently running the world. For instance, there…

    Leadership is much more complicated than providing guidance to a group of individuals or an organization, it is multidimensional and requires both experience and knowledge. A powerful quote from Carly Fiorina proves my point, she said: “Leadership is about making a positive difference for and with others. Leadership is about the integrity of one’s character, the caliber of one’s capabilities, and the effectiveness of one’s collaboration with others.” Reflecting on this statement, I realize I am…
