The Population Bomb Revisited
The Population Bomb was written to help in the inauguration of the global debate about the association of the population growth and the environmental degradation. It teaches many people around the globe about the earth’s limited size in bearing the human civilization. Despite the book’s shortcomings, it still offers a useful opportunity for learning the ecological, energy, and the food shortage of the current generation. The book’s publishing was in response to asking Paul who is the author to provide the summary of his arguments that he always made in the media concerning the population growth and the associated environmental issues.
The Garden Party
Katherine Mansfield is among the few short story writers who are regarded as masters of the modernist short story. Mansfield’s short stories do not only depict subtle changes in the behavior of human and their surrounding environment but also depict trivial events in the plots of her work. In most of her stories, she chooses domestic sphere of home as her setting, and she reveals the marital relationship between women and men. Although Mansfield has not showed elements of feminism in her contemporary works, there are vast feminist awareness flowing through her writings, in the sense that there exist a strong feeling of discontinuity and division between female and male life experiences. The many restrictions patriarchy and society places on women’s shoulder to silence them is a reoccurring topic in her writings. This paper critically analyses the extent to which Katherine Mansfield has embodied feminists in her book The Garden Party.
