I knew this was going to be fun, but had no idea that this place would be forever etched in my mind.

The lack of any character with which to identify or understand creates a portrait much closer to reality than the staged dram

The Awakening Books, unlike movies, have been around since the beginning of time. For the most part, they are more meaningful than the movies that are made from these books. This is due to the fact that an author is able to convey his/her message clearer and include things in the book that cannot be exhibited in a movie. For this reason, the reader of the book is much more effected than the viewer of the film. In the novella, The Awakening, by Kate Chopin, there is much more evidence of symbolis

Her narrative twists and female perspective, differentiate her vastly from Dante.

However even the most ardent fans of Austen will have to agree with the fact that the personages she creates are not appealing to every man. An exception to that trend in this reader's opinion would be the character of Mr. Bennet, who by his sharp wit and stark realism alone redeems Pride and Prejudice for any audienc
