Help needed on finding "scholarly" research articles for a paper...

Recommended Posts

OK, new & much more researchable topic:

 

Female Duality (or Portrayal of the Chinese Female) in Maxine Hong Kingston’s “The Woman Warrior”

 

The title may need to be restated later on but this is what I've written so far expanding on that a little:

 

There are two distinct roles that Chinese women play in Maxine Hong Kingston’s “The Woman Warrior”. One is that of the submissive, timid and conservative housewife, mother or servant. The other is quite the opposite – brave, strong and powerful, this archetype can go on to become a doctor or warrior. Occasionally, Kingston blends the lines by portraying the presence of both roles in one woman.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

If anyone familiar with MLA formating would be interested in proofing my paper when I'm finished please let me know - I would really appreciate it! :)

I love proofreading! I miss it actually (I was an English major). I'd gladly look it over for you! (as a side note, I loved the Woman Warrior)

I love Like Water for Chocolate and read it like once a year - total nerd I know!!! I haven't read The Woman Warrior since 9th grade so I'm no help there but sounds like you're on the right path. Have fun :)

I love "Like Water for Chocolate" too - great book! The movie was really disappointing to me.

You read The Woman Warrior in 9th grade?? Wow!

I am LOVING my professor right now! Not only did she approve the topic change and give me a great resource from the library, but she said that she would be happy to accept it on Tuesday instead of Monday!!! PHEW! Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! lol

 

Oh and Jennifer, those articles you gave me are really helpful. Thanks again!

YAY, I just finished my rough draft! It always feels good to have that completed! I am sure I have a ton of errors to correct though so thank goodness my teacher gave me a 1 day extension! I just sent it off to JenniferLynn to have her proof it for me (thanks so much Jenn!).

 

Thanks to you all for offering your suggestions and help grouphug.gif

 

For now, a little break - I'm off to play Mario Kart! cheesy.gif

It was required for 9th grade English at my school, I had to write a paper on it too but I have no idea what the topic was! I did enjoy the book though.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
