“I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” and “The Old Man and the Sea”: A Common Theme of Survival
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page review of the common elements of survival found in these works by Ernest Hemingway and May Angelou. Instead of fighting against the sea, the marlin, and the sharks, as did Hemingway’s Santiago, Angelou is fighting against the societal realities of being female and black. She, like Santiago, is influenced heavily by others perceptions and beliefs in regard to her limitations but like Santiago was able to capture the marlin and bring at least its head back to shore as proof of his accomplishment, Angelou is able to persevere and to use her writing to pull her out of the stagnation of other’s expectations. Bibliography lists one source.

“I Stand Here Ironing”: An Analysis of the Short Story by Tillie Olsen
[ send me this essay ]
A 6 page review of the major themes and symbolism in this 1961 story. Although “I Stand Here Ironing” is not biographical it parallels to some degree events which occurred in Olsen’s own life. It is the story of a young and inexperienced mother who painfully relates the deplorable circumstances of her life and the impacts of those circumstances on her and her young daughter. This paper contends that, rather than a lament of guilt, this story is a story of anguish and a symbolic literary message which emphasizes the importance of feminine survival in the face of intense societal pressures. No additional sources are listed.
