The Patriarchal Influence on Miranda and How It Reflects Society Today

The first essay we covered in the semester centered around a close-reading of The Tempest and every subsequent essay required some sort of close-reading. The biggest question I would be asking as a reader of this portfolio is how this is different than any of those essays. I answer that by saying that I feel I analyze one character (Miranda) and one topic (patriarchal oppression) in an in-depth and cohesive way. This essay stands apart from other essays of mine as it specifically stays on track without getting side-tracked and feels like a grounded and complete essay.
