Literature Essays

Here are my essays based around literature. From prose to plays, Literature is one of my favourite things to analyse as one of the longest standing forms of media. 

To what extent is Carol Ann Duffy a feminist poet? Case Study on ‘The World’s Wife’ (1999)

A successful feminist poet should advocate equality between the sexes rather than widening the gap which is still present. Duffy is known for her feminist poetry and often writes about themes such as oppression and social inequality. ‘The World’s Wife’ examines the stories of
generations of previously marginalised women to show the ever-present patriarchal society. However, Duffy’s justification of women’s violent actions and her use of gender stereotypes in her poems seem outdated for a modern political climate.
