About Me

I am a third year, Trent University student, studying English Literature.  This blog is a project that I am completing for my Gender, Sexuality, and Literature class.  Students were given the option for the final project to either construct a blog or write a formal essay.  This is now my second time blogging as my first blog The Angry Grapes was completed for my American Literature class the previous term.  I was interested in expanding my knowledge of the blogging world while at the same time completing this assignment.  The focus of this blog, which I titled Who Wears The Pants?, is struggling with identity in literature.  A lot of the course readings that were required throughout this course dealt with the theme of the search for one’s identity.  I thought that by narrowing my focus to certain texts I could gain more information on identity struggles within literature and how they are portrayed.
