    • 5 Pages

    Over the course of my visits to Fall River I think that my capacity to observe my environment and the factories stayed consistent. I naturally pay attention to minute factors and functions of my surroundings which I think is why I tended to focus on the machines and the smaller aspects of the factory. I also tend to be more reserved in social situations which lends myself to not being as willing to approach people, particularly because of the language barriers we faced at both factories and that such a great number of the employees did not wish to participate in the project. I think that over the course of my visits I was able to conceptualize all of the small parts of the factories and understand how they work in unison but I was not able…

Speculation focused on the youngest daughter of the two Borden girls, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Andrew Borden a Sunday school teacher and the head of the local hospital’s Fruit and Flower Mission.

    Fall River, Massachusetts is a city just about an hour south of Boston College. I have lived there my entire life. I moved once, but it was only to the other side of the city. Having accumulated, then, twenty years of experiential knowledge living in Fall River, I thought I knew more about the city than – it turns out – I do. The way that I know Fall River, and the way that I portray my home town to others, is as a large, diverse, economically-challenged, dead end city. This does not paint the…

    In her short story “The Fall River Axe Murders,” Angela Carter treats us not to the blood-soaked depiction promised by the title but, instead, a far more in-depth look at the curious individual who was Lizzie Borden. Through precise word-choice and careful detail, Carter delves into the long-held and everyday struggles faced by the troubled Borden and, in doing so, paints a clear picture of a woman with little outward purpose, a bleak future, a contentious relationship with her father and…

    On July 19, 1860, Lizzie Borden was accused of the double murder of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Borden. I believe she was guilty of this charges for multiple reasons. She claimed that at the time of the murders she was in the barn looking for fishing equipment that they didn’t even have and wouldn’t need until next week. The idea of doing this came to her randomly for no apparent reason as she was ironing some clothes. When she was asked to get the dress she had worn the day of the murders as…
