Dashiell Hammett's 'The Maltese Falcon' # 3
[ send me this essay ]
6 pages in length. Sprouting from a most unexpected source, The Maltese Falcon represented great change within the genre of detective novels. Writings prior to the groundbreaking book were boring at best, with the same Sherlock Holmes-esque characterizations over and over again. The writer describes how The Maltese Falcon breathed new life into an era of rather unexciting sleuthing mysteries with the introduction of author Dashiell Hammett. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Homosexuality in Modern Detective Fiction
[ send me this essay ]
In this 3 page paper, the writer traces the theme of homosexuality as it appears in Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon, Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep, and Margaret Maron's The Bootlegger's Daughter. The paper concludes that during this century our society as a whole has matured toward a more compassionate and realistic view of homosexuality, growing from the perception of gays as perverts to a recognition of homosexuals as productive members of society, and popular fiction reflects this change. No sources except books.

[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper looking at the antebellum slave narrative Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Ann Jacobs.

Bibliography lists one source.

Harriet Jacobs' Incidents In The Life Of A Slave Girl / Historic Value
[ send me this essay ]
When Harriet Jacobs' 'Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl' was published, it was probably one of the few slave narratives that dared to speak of a woman in captivity not only as a mother but also as a fiercely individual self. In this 3 page essay, the writer analyzes the book's historic value as a realistic look at the conditions endured by slaves-- particularly the reality of mental enslavement. No other sources cited.

Virtue in the Slave Narratives of Wilson and Jacobs
[ send me this essay ]
A ten page paper looking intensively at Harriet Wilson’s “Our Nig” and Harriet Ann Jacobs’ “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl”. The paper shows that while both books emphasize some nineteenth-century female virtues -- particularly in regard to the protagonists’ maternal instincts -- and elicit considerable sympathy for their protagonists, they also express a greater longing for independence than was typical of women in that era. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
