INTRODUCTION Women in the 18th century - the title sounds very alluring, but is it relevant nowadays? Why would be people interested in such a theme? Before arguing the importance of it, I would like to specify that my diploma paper is going to be one of compilation, i.e. the description of the critical vision which I found connected to my subject.

Sexual Anxieties in The English Gothic Novel

Prologue The subject of this work is mainly the sexual anxieties presented by English writers of Gothic literature, more specifically, in the English Gothic novel, written in England between 1760-1820.

One of the objectives of this investigation is to give a thourough characterization of synonyms. Chapter I deals wit... vezi detalii

Business English Metaphors
