"Devil In The Shape Of A Woman" By Carol Karlsen And "Salem Possessed" By Paul Boyer And Steven Nissenbaum: Comparison
[ send me this essay ]
5 pages in length. There were a number of reasons why Salem became the historical foundation of witch hunts, but none were so powerful as the threat of female independence had at that time. Without out a doubt, the fear of women's emancipation was the foremost reason for the colonial New England witch hunts. When comparing Carol Karlsen's "Devil In The Shape Of A Woman" with Paul Boyer And Steven Nissenbaum's "Salem Possessed," one immediately notes the incongruity of the two works, primarily due to the fact that Karlsen's perspective as a woman herself is significantly different from either of her male counterparts.

"Lost in the Funhouse": A Discussion of the Book by John Barth
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page review of the work of John Barth, one of the most notable fiction writers of the twentieth century. Discusses the societal need to classify and categorize such works. "Lost in the Funhouse" is a collection of short stories, essays, meditations, and jokes which stands in contrast to most contemporary approaches to the short story. Fervently resisting the century's move toward realism, Barth instead prefers to combine the past with the present into an "eclectic montage", an intertextual experience which provides something for everyone. The result is a work in which the old story is retold with a postmodern twist. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
