Gender: Nature Or Nurture?
[ send me this paper ]

These attitudes are generally equal in respect; however, the one point the can be argued as being more significant than the others relates to her opinion of Adam and Eve. In Causeae et Curae, she argued that if Adam had succumbed to the serpent instead of Eve, the original sin thus created would have been too strong to be overcome at all. Otherwise, she believed that the roles both men and women assume within the social environment are complementary, both required for the proper functioning of society. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page overview of the underlying theme of femininity in these two short stories.

While Poe's short stories could be said to glorify the image of a strong woman, Cooke's actually derides that strength. No additional sources are listed.
