Ha! You probably didn't think this post would ever be written, but here I am, proving all of you wrong! Way back (in April, actually) I wrote this paper about what I called "demancipation in literature", by way of which I wanted to prove that there was a kind of regression in female emancipation and that we are living in a rape culture, and that this would become apparent in comparing a 19th century novel - Jane Eyre - with a 21st century novel - Hush, Hush.

HUSH WHY DON'T YOU JUST HUSH* )

Also, if anybody would like to read the paper (From Emancipation to Demancipation? - A Contrasting Analysis of the Portrayal of Women in Jane Eyre and Hush, Hush), just drop me a note and I'm happy to provide!

I'm sorry if this post is a bit rambly, it's late and I probably should have gone to bed instead of writing this, since school starts again tomorrow, but I wanted to get this done before the next school year starts, so. :D

* Han and Lal were talking about Hush, Hush on twitter earlier, which turned out like this...

HAN: AND ANYTHING THAT HATES ON HUSH WINS AWESOME POINTS AS WELL
HAN: HUSH, HUSH. NOT JUST HUSH. THOUGH I WISH IT WOULD JUST HUSH.
LAL: SO MUCH HATRED FOR HUSH WHY DON'T YOU JUST HUSH.

(Shut up, all capslocks conversations are awesome. But you see, this was too good for me to pass up.)
