“Moon Palace”: A Review of the Book by Paul Auster
[ send me this essay ]
A 15 page overview of the plot and literary structure of Auster’s novel. The author of this paper asserts that this novel is a study in literary contrast. The book can be accurately described as a chronicle of innumerable tragedies and a comedy alike. It can equally be described as a bildungsroman, a kuntslerroman, a tall tale, an autobiography, and a history book as well as one or two other literary genres, one of the most important of which is that of a tragedy. Auster’s incredible ability to present a sequence of almost unbelievable events and consequences and to weave those events and consequences into the main plot has, however, been highly praised and criticized. The author of this paper asserts that while some criticize this book for this very quality, it should be recognized that instead of criticism, this novel deserves It classification as a modern version of the literary genre of tragedy. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

“Native Roots”: A Review of the Book by Jack Weatherford
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page discussion of the numerous lessons presented in this book on Native American history and the culture’s impacts on the Europeans who invaded Native lands. This book offers a provocative view of the manner in which mainstream America is indebted to its indigenous inhabitants the Native Americans. Despite the lack of recognition of the fact, many attributes of Native knowledge and culture became slowly and indelibly engraved into white culture. In “Native Roots” Weatherford presents a clear and logical argument that what developed even more slowly over the years which would follow was an interdependence of white and Native American culture. The author of this paper contends that the scenario which is related in “Native Roots” has a number of implications, particularly to the liberal arts classroom. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

“Nest in the Wind : Adventures in Anthropology on a Tropical Island”: A Review
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page overview of the book by Martha C. Ward. This book provides not only insight to the people of the island on which Ward is stationed but also into the mindset and thinking of the author herself. This paper contends, however, that this book is a window into the lives and the experience of the people Ward is investigating, not a reflection of preconceived ideas as to how these people somehow innately fall at a lower echelon on the totem pole than our so-called more advanced society. The author of this paper asserts, however, that there is an underlying issue broached by Ward. This issue is the depiction of gender roles in this primitive society and how these roles relate to the patriarchal domination which has so heavily impacted the world as a whole. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
