Wide Sargasso Sea
6th February 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

When writing a book report on Wide Sargasso Sea, students should note that Jean Rhys' work acts as a prequel to Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. Wide Sargasso Sea takes place in Jamaica during the early nineteenth century and is told in three parts. The first part of Wide Sargasso Sea is narrated by the main character, Antoinette, the daughter of ex-slave owners (salves were freed during the Emancipation Act of 1833, leading to the demise of many slave owners, including Antoinette's family). After the death of her father, Antoinette continues to live on a crumbling estate with her mother, Annette, and brother, Pierre. A group of servants who are impoverished and hostile towards their old "master family" also live on the property, including the daughter of one of the servants, Tia, who is Antoinette's only friend. Tia later turns on Antoinette without explanation. . . . .

Woman at Point Zero
6th February 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

A book report on Nawal El Saadawi's Woman at Point Zero can begin by mentioning the author's time as a psychiatrist in Egypt. Woman at Point Zero is also a good book to analyze from a feminist perspective. While studying female prisoners, El Saadawi is told about an amazing woman, Firdaus, who also happens to be a prisoner awaiting execution at Qanatir. Although the woman has been offered a pardon several times, she refuses to sign it. El Saadawi requests to meet with her but Firdaus denies her until the day before she is set to be executed for killing a man. Woman at Point Zero focuses on the story of Firdaus' life which she relays to El Saadawi. . . . .

White Fang
5th February 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

For purposes of a book report, Jack London's White Fang can be reviewed as the book is written, in three parts. White Fang tells the story of a wolf who is born into the wild and learns to both fear and love people. In the first part of White Fang, the reader is introduced to Henry and Bill, two men struggling as they are being pursued, along with their six dogs, by a pack of wolves during a time of famine. The she-wolf of the pack (actually part dog and part wolf) lures the dogs away from the group to be eaten by her pack. When the two men are down to only three dogs, Bill uses one of the few bullets he has remaining to try and shoot the she-wolf. He is unsuccessful and is eaten along with the dog. Henry continues to travel with the two dogs, later forced to build a fire around them to protect them from the wolf pack. They are fortunately saved by another group of traveling men. . . . .

Winesburg, Ohio
4th February 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

Because Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio is more similar to a short-story cycle than a novel, writing a book report on it can pose a challenge to the reader. A short-story cycle is a collection of stories brought together and arranged in such a way that the sum of the stories is greater than its parts. In other words, although they can be read as individual stories, if a person were to write a book report on Winesburg, Ohio, the stories should be read collectively and in order. The book opens with a prologue meant to set-up the over-arching theme of each of the stories that will proceed. In the prologue, an old writer recalls a book he had written, "The Book of the Grotesque" where he wrote about versions of people he knew from his town, Winesburg, he were transformed into the grotesque versions of themselves due to their belief in something representing absolute truth. Twenty-four stories follow the prologue, with the main character, George Willard, appearing in several of the stories. . . . . .

Wuthering Heights
3rd February 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

A book report on Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights might begin with a description of the narrator of the story, Ellen (Nelly) Dean. Nelly is the servant of Catherine, a constant in the story, and is associated to both families the story revolves around: the Earnshaws and the Lintons. The story is narrated by Nelly to Lockwood, a tenant at Thrushcross Grange (property of the Lintons) after most of the Linton family has passed. Lockwood is curious about the history of the two families, and Nelly is much obliged to divulge the details of their unfortunate past and how the two families of Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights came to be intertwined. . . . .
