She stands up against glass ceilings, separate spheres, and double standards-cultural institutions that create and uphold a weaker sex.

Individual and Society in Virginia Woolf's Novel "mrs Dalloway" - According to Viktors Ivbulis (1995: 23 - 29) in Modernist fiction a special attention is paid to an individual who degrades because of the pressure from the society and is therefore shown as a small part of the society being unable to do miracles. Moreover, the 20th century's fight for the power makes the rights of an individual be dependent on the rights of the society. This individual is not a personality anymore that was established in the 19th century literature. It is a simple person, who is depressed by the highly technological world and the demands of the society and is therefore lonesome and isolated....   [tags: European Literature] 1047 words

Orlando by Virgina Woolf - ... The theory of personality traits, most commonly masculinity and femininity, are psychological tendencies. They characterize human nature as having a stable predisposition to behave in a relatively predictable manner. These traits are further modified to influence a being through the culturally defined patterns of expected behaviour (Robinson, and Green 248). Androgyny is a neologism, constructed from the Greek words for male (andro-) and female (-gyny), and can simply be defined as a unified blend of both masculine and feminine personality characteristics in a single body in which these traits can be expressed with unlimited flexibility (Buchanan; Robinson, and Green 252)....   [tags: literary analysis] 2034 words

The Oppression of Women in A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Wolf - ... However, this is an effective way to begin as it allows the reader or listener’s attention to be captured immediately. It is defensive, and almost a rebuttal to an implied audience with an implied resistance. Similarly, Shakespeare would often begin his plays in the middle of scenes, so the audience is immediately captivated with the conflict of the story. Thus, Woolf introduces the character of Judith Shakespeare, William Shakespeare’s fictional sister of her own invention, in order to emphasize her point that a female writer in Shakespeare’s position could not have enjoyed the same freedoms as a man....   [tags: patriarchal society, imperialism] 1742 words

Identity, Opportunity and Equality - ... “They were to be equal partners”, this only a dream many women during the Victorian and Modernist era dreamed of.

The speech gave me the outlook that women needed to be fulfilled with their life instead of sex symbols, motherly figures, and Susie homemakers....   [tags: Virginia Wolf, gender equality]

Virginis Wiilf and Djuna Barnes - Virginia Woolf and Djuna Barnes were writers experimenting with new, modern ways of life, and they expressed new-age philosophies in their novels. Both writers explore a more emotional side Modernism than the other male writers, with greater emphasis on character relationships, thoughts and emotions. To the Lighthouse does this by posing the futility of ambitions in the novel, suggesting that it is pointless to sentimentalizing previous dreams, since actuality is unlikely to reflect them. Both Barnes and Woolf look back at the great minds of history and critique their views, often dismissing them as old-fashioned....   [tags: Writers, Modernist Movement, Analysis]
