A Comparison of Kate Chopin's The Awakening and Grand Isle - A Comparison of Kate Chopin's The Awakening and Grand Isle       Grand Isle is the movie adaptation of Kate Chopin's 1889 novel, The Awakening. Turner Network Television (TNT) made the movie in 1991, and it stars Kelly McGillis as Edna Pontellier and Adrian Pasdar as Robert Lebrun. To say that this movie is based, even loosely, on The Awakening is an insult to Kate Chopin's colorful literary work. A reviewer from People Weekly calls it a "tedious melodrama" and sees it as Kelly McGillis's "vanity project" because she is star, producer, and narrator ("Grand Isle" 13)....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Puritan Minister Jonathan Edwards - Jonathan Edwards was a Puritan minister in Northampton, Massachusetts who played a critical role in shaping the First Great Awakening. One of his great works called “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is considered a classic of early American literature. Edwards, as a Puritan, strongly believed in the Doctrine of Predestination. However, when analyzing the sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” one can also detect hints of the theory of Arminianism in the underlying meaning. This is because his sermon is based off of giving people the ability to turn to the God and accept his Grace or reject the Grace of God and spend eternity in hell....   [tags: sermons, First Great Awakening]

The women were in pure agony knowing that there was no faith for them to have a crucial change in civilization. This could often lead to “clinical depression” in which a human could feel lonely, empty, confounded and miserable. In this time period, women’s role in society was to be simply mothers and wives. A world where women had rights, control, and power was a fantasy. According to Hall, he states, “Key to all feminist methodologies is the belief that patriarchal oppression of women through history has been profound and multifaceted” (Hall 202)....   [tags: women's role, 19th century, the awakening]
