These three brides represent the femme fatale, the fatal woman. The over sexualised women whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. These women serve as monstrous reminders of what happens if the boundaries of proper behaviour and traditional gender roles are crossed. These women, although beautiful, possess the wrong type of beauty, one of which brands them as evil, openly sexual and seductive women. Who, in addition lack the chaste passivity and fragility of the ideal Victorian lady, thus making them deserving of some form of punishment in order for them to be returned to their pure, innocent, albeit dead, human form.
During the 19th century female authors were commonly degraded especially when books had a sexual nature. A now notable biography from this period is Charlotte Brontё’s “Jane Eyre”, a detailed account of the life of a young girl that blossoms into adulthood having to face the challenges and social norms of the time. In many works of literature a character intentionally deceives others to either hurt or offer protection. In “Jane Eyre” a character intentionally deceives a loved one with the intention to protect everyone including himself. This particular deception plays a large role in developing the characters of the narrative and the plot development, contributing to the work as a whole.
In Delta, Louisiana Sarah Breedlove was born to parents Minerva and Owen Breedlove on December 23, 1867. Sarah was the first unrestricted child to her recently freed (from slavery) parents. Sarah’s parents worked on a cotton field, when Sarah was old enough she worked with them. Although Sarah had a lot of work she managed to have fun with other children. They went to fish fries where people sang and danced, in addition they went to church on Sundays with their families. When Sarah was about 5 years old her mother unexpectedly died and less than 2 years later her father died. Sarah went to live with her sister, Louvenia and her husband, who was very cruel to Sarah. In 1878 the 3 moved to Vicksburg, Mississippi because of the yellow fever outburst.
Eric is extremely caring towards his friends and family. Even though Eric found out Sarah Byrnes could talk the whole time that she was in the hospital he did not say a word to anyone because he knew what would happen if Sarah Byrnes dad found out. “That's what I thought, you’ve been hearing me all along”(Crutcher 107). Eric knew what would happen if Sarah Byrnes were to leave the hospital, so he did not say anything. Due to the way that Eric kept the secret about Sarah Byrnes being able to talk shows how caring her is towards his friends.
In Graham’s Magazine, another anonymous reviewer suggested that Rochester’s character was dangerous and immoral, saying, “No woman who had ever truly loved could have mistaken so completely the Rochester type, or could have made her heroine love a man of proud, selfish, ungovernable appetites, which no sophistry can lift out of lust.” Thus, he intimated that any author who would contrive to have her heroine fall in love with such a total rake would be immoral herself and unknowing of what true love is. He went one step further to say, “We accordingly think that if the innocent young ladies of our land lay a premium on profligacy, by marrying dissolute rakes for the honor of reforming them, à la Jane Eyre, their benevolence will be of questionable utility to the world.” In this, he suggested that the depiction of Jane and Rochester’s relationship would cause young women of the time to emulate Jane’s “romantic wickedness.”
Sarah Larson attended the University of Rhode Island and went in undecided.

Sarah Lewandowski was born in June and was adopted by two loving parents. Her birth mother couldn't take care of her as was only fourteen and didn't have any parents to help her. So Julie and Gary adopted Sarah and took her to her new home. Sarah was a very calm baby and didn't throw many temper tantrums. She wasn't fussy with many foods and let her parents dress her however they wanted. As Sarah grew up she made lots of friends, although mostly at the play area at Mc Donald's so she never saw them again. Sarah had a fairly easy time in pre-school but she had a few issues with the other kids sometimes. For example, one time another little girl wanted to give Sarah a hug for absolutely no reason at all. She didn't know this other girl and felt
I am nominating myself Sheila Lincoln Woodbury for financial Secretary of NCBW - West Palm Beach chapter. I have:
Initially, I agreed with Cheryl Sateri's viewpoint on this topic; however, after further analysis, my opinion changed. I believe the school lunch program simply needs to be revamped. Sateri states, "A fast-food restaurant can provide a convenient, profitable service that will improve the diets of high school students" (Clouse 420). While I find this to be somewhat of a true statement, I feel that the numerous underprivileged children may not benefit from this option.
St. Lucy’s Home for girls Raised by Wolves, Karen Russell’s collection of fantastical short stories take all that is mundane and fractures it into a fantastical world with humor, dramatic tone, or cultural/religious undertones. Russell whirls a reader into her stories with her capability to encase a reader in the story with her repetition of one’s senses. Constantly brining in the senses of a reader brought in the smells of a surrounding from the protagonist or in this case the narrator. In St. Lucy’s Home for girls Raised by Wolves, our narrator, Claudette, speaks from the mind of a half human half wolf in transition. Of the pack’s reaction to the nuns, how Sister
After reading the opening chapter of Sarah’s Key I felt worried about the mother. I felt as if the daughter was stronger than the mother. The mother also lied about where her husband was and wouldn’t go get her things together. I believe that she was in a state of shock, and was terrified of what was to come. As confusing as the opening chapter was I could tell that the daughter had more strength even if she didnt fully understand what was going on. I have read the opening chapter multiple times coming up with these questions, Where are they going if the little girl clams that they are not Germans? They said to pack their things for a few days, so it sounds like they are going to be back. (I don’t think they are coming back) Why are they taking
Phillip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart), P.I, is hired by the rich General Sternwood to out a blackmailer, but quickly finds himself tangled in the Sternwood family’s dirty laundry — it’s the classic film noir narrative. At the center of it all seems to be Vivian Rutledge (Lauren Bacall), a Sternwood daughter, and the woman attempting to cover up the murder at the bottom of Marlowe’s case. I used Vivian’s tidy adherence to the femme fatale archetype to dig deeper into its true message about women’s nature, beyond the mysterious façade.
“Jane Eyre” is a book centred around female duality. In a time when females were still expected to fulfill their “womanly duties,” Charlotte Bronte wrote a novel dealing with a woman’s view on morality & sexuality, passion & sensibility, and conformity & insanity, among other themes. This motif of duality plays a strong part in the dynamism that makes up the book, and is not limited to the themes, but is also used to relate many of the characters to the titular Jane. In “The Mystery at Thornfield,” Valerie Beattie makes claims that the character Bertha Mason’s insanity is a representation of rebellion toward the limitations of Victorian women. Not only is
Jane Eyre is a novel written by Charlotte Brontë. It is distinctly a female Bildungsroman, as it follows the progress and growth of Jane’s character on her quest for selfhood and independence in a society that tries its best to impress upon her the roles and expectations of women in the Victorian era (which is neatly packaged in the figure of the ‘Angel-in-the-house’.) This is something with which this essay seeks to engage by looking at female figures which feature prominently in Jane’s life, how those who embrace the figure of ‘Angel-in-the-house’ are treated and viewed, versus those who do not. Furthermore, important male figures will also be looked at in order to understand Jane’s own feelings to the ‘Angel-in-the-house’ figure and how she approaches it, as well as how the Byronic hero might relate – if it even does.
