Kurt Humphreys English Close Reading Feminist During this story of a woman, woods, and an intriguing powerful man, a larger these takes place of feminine control. As the story begins the reader becomes engulfed in a description of woods that immediately is portrayed as a place that will trap this woman in it. “These vertical bars of a brass-colored distillation of light...” gives the feeling of a jail or place of imprisonment. These woods are unwelcoming and desolate that have no tracks of humans in them which wards people away and frightens them. However these woods are not like fairy tales, as Carter uses a direct reference to the famous story of Little Red Riding Hood, but rather we get lost in our own illusions and the woods are exactly as it seems. The woman knew that as soon as she entered she was trapped by a mysterious force. As the reader one can depict that the narrator wants to be caught and drawn in.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
