The King Must Die
27th November 2014 | Author: "Reviews"

A book report on Mary Renault's novel, The King Must Die, tells the story of Theseus whose grandfather is the King of Troizen. Theseus lives in Troizen with his grandfather, and doesn't know who his father is. Because he can sense earthquakes, Theseus believes his father is Poseidon. While his grandfather eventually tells Theseus that his father is Aigeus, the King of Athens, he does admit that Poseidon might have had some hand in his birth as well. Theseus sets off for Athens with his friend Dexios. They take a dangerous path, Isthmus Road, and Dexios is killed, though Theseus avenges him and arrives safely in Eleusis. . . . .

The Book of the City of Ladies
26th November 2014 | Author: "Reviews"

A book review of Christine de Pizan's The Book of the City of Ladies might classify this novel as a feminist discussion of the portrayal of women in the modern world. After reading an author's dismissive, immoral summary of the nature of women, Pizan becomes momentarily depressed about how women are described. Just then she is visited by three women, allegorical images representing Justice, Reasoning and Rectitude. They tell her it is her fate to create the City of Ladies, where will reside the best women the world has to offer. These women will serve as an example of how all women should be viewed. . . . .

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
24th November 2014 | Author: "Reviews"

A summary for purposes of a book report on Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde begins with two characters, a lawyer named Mr. Utterson and his friend, Enfield, discussing a gruesome assault on a young woman. Mr. Hyde is responsible for the assault and pays off the girl's relatives. Although the men don't discuss the subject further, Mr. Utterson is troubled by the fact that one of his clients, Dr. Jekyll, has recently transferred his properties to Mr. Hyde in his will. . . . .

Child of the Dark
23rd November 2014 | Author: "Reviews"

A book report on Carolina Maria de Jesus' book, Child of the Dark, should provide reference for the material as de Jesus' diary during the years covering July 1955 through January 1, 1960. De Jesus provides a summary of her life, and the lives of her children (Vera, two; José Carlos, five; and Jo£o, eight) in a shantytown. In the shantytown, people live in homes made of cardboard and scraps of metal, and they beg during the day, or like Carolina, collect recyclables for food money. People in the shantytown aren't particularly close. The shantytown, as Carolina describes, changes people and turns into an "every man for himself" situation. Carolina describes how some of the women torment her children to get to her. One woman even accuses Jo£o of rape, a charge Carolina knows he is not guilty, but still makes her consider putting her children into a shelter temporarily for their own safety. . . . .

Mansfield Park
22nd November 2014 | Author: "Reviews"

Jane Austen's Mansfield Park makes for a popular topic for book reports, mainly because the author, herself, is so popular, and Mansfield Park is one of her lesser-known novels. The protagonist of Mansfield Park is Fanny Price, a young woman who has recently come to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle, Lady Bertram and Sir Thomas, at Mansfield Park. Lady Bertram is Fanny's maternal aunt. She is much wealthier than fanny's mother, who married beneath her. Fanny's father is a disabled sailor who drinks too much. Fanny is rather reserved in her new surroundings, being caught between several members of the family and not feeling as though she fits in. Lady Bertram and Sir Thomas' daughters, Maria and Julia, are cruel and shallow. There are two sons as well, Tom, who is a drunk, and Edmund, who is studying to be a clergyman and is the only member of the family that Fanny feels close to. . . . .
