Literary Theory

“The Yellow Wallpaper” and “The Gilded Six-Bits” discussion No unread replies. No replies. Which literary theory, New Historicism, Feminist Criticism, Critical Race Theory, or Psychoanalytic Criticism, do you think is the most helpful in determining a theme in Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper?” OR Zora Neale Hurston’s “The Gilded Six-Bits”?  What do you think that theme is? Choose one or two specific literary elements, such as plot, characterization, setting, symbol, point of view, imagery, metaphor, or style (such as diction, syntax, tone, and irony) that Gilman or Hurston uses to convey this theme.  Use textual evidence from the story itself to help you explain. If you attempt a psychoanalytic reading, consider how any elements of the author’s psychology (experience, repression, behavior, or motives) or characters’ psychology are reflected in the theme of the story. If you attempt a feminist reading, illustrate what the story might be implying about patriarchal culture, and/or the status of women in society. How is the author attempting to uncover these matters in her story? If you attempt a new historical reading, consider how the text exposes insights into current events of the period or into the author’s life. Is the author critiquing anything about their society? How so? If you attempt a reading using critical race theory, consider how the race of the author and/or characters comes into play in the story. How do the characters experience racism?  Is it direct or indirect? Is it based on conscious or unconscious biases? How is the author or character affected by this racism?
