Essay from the year 2009 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, San Diego State University (English), course: English 493 - Sex in Literature and Film, language: English, abstract: Kate Chopin's The Awakening (1899) and Diablo Cody's Candy Girl (2006) are two distinctive works of female authors written in entirely different periods of time. Nonetheless, the texts share an overall theme as they both approach feminism in their very own way. Chopin expresses the oppression of women in the late 19th century, most apparent in her main character, Edna. Cody, on the other hand, addresses feminist issues as her story explores eroticism and sex work as well as the opposition between social conventions and individual freedom.
