Download Sylvias Emanzipation in Sarah Orne Jewett´s 'A White Heron' by Tamara Schaub PDF

By Tamara Schaub

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Universität Mannheim (Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: American brief tales And Theorie, eight Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die weibliche Emanzipation gegenüber der männlichen Dominanz in einer patriarchalen Gesellschaft ist ein sehr bedeutsames und oft diskutiertes Thema in der Literatur. Viele Autorinnen behandeln dieses Thema sowohl explizit, als auch implizit, durch Verwendung verschiedener Textstrategien, wie zum Beispiel den Gebrauch von Metaphern, binären Mustern und Stereotypen in ihren Werken.
Die 1886 verfasste Kurzgeschichte „A White Heron” von Sarah Orne Jewett befasst sich ebenfalls mit dieser Thematik. Es ist eines der bekanntesten Werke Sarah Orne Jewett´s. Diese Geschichte ist in der Literatur aufgrund ihrer schonungslosen neuenglischen Milieustudien und der Selbstbehauptung der weiblichen Protagonistin so bedeutend. Sie ist als einer der Höhepunkte der amerikanischen Regionalliteratur dieser Zeit zu sehen. Diese Erzählungen, welche in der Zeit der weiblichen local-color-Literatur entstanden sind, versuchen dem Leser aufzuzeigen, zu welchem Preis weibliche Selbstbehauptung möglich ist.
An diesem Punkt setzt auch meine Hausarbeit an. Ich möchte in meiner Hausarbeit den Initiationsprozess Sylvias darstellen. Die Leitfrage hierbei ist, wodurch der Prozess des Erwachsenwerdens eingeleitet worden ist und welche Faktoren ihn beeinflusst haben. Um eine Grundlage für diese literaturwissenschaftliche Untersuchung zu schaffen, führe ich eine Inhaltsangabe zum besseren Verständnis der Erzählung an. Als zweiter Schritt wird der Begriff Initiationsprozess genauer erläutert, welcher die foundation meiner späteren examine bildet, in der ich anhand von Textstellen Sylvias Veränderung im Bewusstsein und Charakter herausarbeite, um in meiner Schlussfolgerung das Ende der Erzählung zu interpretieren.

By Jean-François Gayraud,Michele Bruni,Ilaria Piperno

“Signor Presidente, l’Italia sta in keeping with essere divorata dalla mafia”, così scriveva profeticamente nel 1980 Pio los angeles Torre in una lettera indirizzata al presidente del Consiglio Spadolini. Oggi, a trent’anni di distanza, possiamo prendere atto che quella previsione si è purtroppo avverata non soltanto in Italia ma anche in buona parte del resto del mondo. Nonostante le leggi sempre più critical, gli investimenti economici a livello governativo, l’impegno massiccio delle forze dell’ordine e il sacrificio di tante vite, le organizzazioni mafiose non soltanto sono ancora vive e ben radicate nel territorio, ma hanno acquisito un enorme potere sia a livello politico, in grado di condizionare le scelte dei governi, che economico, con un quantity d’affari superiore al PIL di molti paesi occidentali. Come questore della Polizia francese, Jean-François Gayraud ha svolto in keeping with molti anni un lavoro di analisi delle strutture organizzative mafiose e della loro espansione mondiale. In questo libro è riuscito nell’arduo compito di tracciare una geopolitica delle nove organizzazioni più importanti – Cosa Nostra, ’Ndrangheta, Camorra, Sacra Corona Unita, Triadi cinesi, Yakuza, los angeles mafia in Albania e in Kosovo, los angeles maffya turca e Cosa Nostra italo-americana – a partire dalle loro origini fino ai nostri giorni. Secondo l’autore, l. a. criminalità organizzata mafiosa è una questione che va affrontata a livello internazionale, con los angeles stessa urgenza con cui viene combattuto il terrorismo e con strumenti intellettuali diversi da quelli applicati finora. Le mafie, infatti, hanno ormai ampiamente superato i confini nazionali, stanno imponendo una nuova geografia dei poteri e partecipano attivamente alla disgregazione del mondo contemporaneo. Divorati dalla mafia è un viaggio nelle profondità delle organizzazioni mafiose, che descrive le origini, i cerimoniali, il modo occulto con cui vengono condotte le operazioni di corruzione, intimidazione e assassinio, le alleanze, le lotte interne, l. a. funzione e los angeles credibilità dei pentiti, l’infiltrazione nel mondo della politica e il loro immenso potere economico. Un’opera necessaria in keeping with comprendere fino in fondo l. a. pericolosa ascesa di una mafia sempre più “in giacca e cravatta” in una società dai tratti sempre più mafiosi.
