Mohammed Matarneh, and Hussein Zeidanin. “Escape from Servitude of Marriage to a Heaven Of Freedom in Kate Chopin and Katherine Mansfield's Selected Stories”. American Research Institute for Policy Development. International Journal of Language and Literature. Vol. 5, No. 1, 2017. DOI: 10.15640/ijll.v5n1a12. Pp. 87-92. The scholarly article has been artistically written reflecting on the first wave of feminists in the society. Kate Chopin was one of the first feminists who strongly advocated for equal treatment of women in the society. According to Matarneh and Zeidanin, the story ‘The Story of the Hour’ is one of Chopin's work that portrayed a patriarchal community and the suffering women in the society had to go through. However, an attempt to free themselves from oppression ended up tragically. The story has used symbolism to show the desperation women were undergoing through in the society as all their efforts for repression were frustrated by the men in a patriarchal society. Chopin, Kate. “The Story of an Hour.” The Complete Works of Kate Chopin. Ed. Per Seyersted. Louisiana: Louisiana State University Press, 1969. 352-354. Chopin was a renown American writer who specialized in writing of short stories. ‘The Story of an Hour' is a story that has been skillfully created employing various literary devices. The author has heavily invested in symbolism and humor. The author is so skillful that he makes the death of an individual appear hilarious rather than tragic. Charles E. May. “To Build a Fire – Summary” Comprehensive Guide to Short Stories, Critical Edition Ed. eNotes.com, Inc. 2004 eNotes.com 2018 http://www.enotes.com/topics/build-fire#summary-summary-summary-the-story [Accessed 2 Dec 2018]. Charles takes a critical evaluation of the story by London Jack. His sole aim is to understand more about the hidden information. In so doing, Charles has found various weaknesses in the story ‘To Build a Fire.' The author takes a philosophical view on the text analyzing the naturalistic behavior of man when it comes to nature survival. He, therefore, concludes that the story lacks a psychological aspect. The author has also skillfully incorporated the ideas in a logical sequence as he refutes some of the key concepts in London Jack’s work. Roddewig, Stephen. “To Build the Fire of Revolution.” James Madison Undergraduate Research Journal, vol. 4, no. 1, 2017, pp. 50-55. JMU Scholarly Commons, http://commons.lib.jmu.edu/jmurj/vol4/iss1/4. Roddewig has conducted a scholarly examination of Jack London's short story "To Build a Fire." According to Roddewig, the story has been artistically drafted to explain the nature of America’s politics. Just like the untold protagonist, political decisions were made based on the short-term benefits and ignoring future dangers that could emanate from poor decision making. The unnamed protagonist has been given characters of masculinity, and individualism which makes him undertake a dangerous journey to Yukon. The slow death has been used to represent the implicit criticism of the Western ideologies and cultures. Roddewing believes that the story ‘To Build a Fire’ has been artistically written to symbolize the critiques to the Western ideologies, masculinity, individualism, and environmental domination. Hendricks, King, "Jack London: Master Craftsman of the Short Story" (1966). USU Faculty Honor Lectures. Paper 29. https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/honor_lectures/29 [Accessed 2nd Dec 2018]. Hendrick King is a professor and librarian at Utah State University. Being a librarian and a professor, Hendrick has evaluated the progressive changes and developments in Jack Londons works. Jack Landon was a master in the art of writing and using various styles professionally to display his work. Jack Landon has been greatly depicted as a naturist writer who has incorporated real issues affecting the society. In the story, “To Build a Fire,” London has skillfully talked of the political system at his time pinpointing the weaknesses in the political system. The untold protagonist has been used as a symbol in the story that critiques the Western ideologies and way of governance. London Jack. “To Build a Fire." The Call of the White Fang and Other Stories Eds. Early labor And Robert C. Leitz III, New York. Oxford University Express. 1998. London Jack was a renowned American writer of his era using realism and naturism as his primary technique of writing. Jack skillfully wrote the short story ‘To Build a Fire' to incorporate the theme of nature. An ignorant protagonist ignores warnings and proceeds on a dangerous journey. Though courageous, the protagonist is perceived as being stupid since he eventually dies of the same things that he had been warned about. The Relationship Between the Annotated Bibliographies Wan Xuemei, Matarnehet al. and Tolentino Jasdomin have all created an analysis of Kate's work. The three articles have focused on Kates work each carrying out their analysis and evaluation of Kate's story ‘The Story of the Hour.' All the three scholars have skillfully evaluated the story and subjected it to a careful analysis focusing on different issues based on their purpose and their field of specialization. Charles E. May, Hendricks King, and Roddewig Stephen have also focused on London Jacks work on ‘To Build a Fire.' They have subjected London's work to strict scholarly scrutiny and given a summary on the work. The three scholars have analyzed Jack London’s work differently each based on their purpose and area of specialization. All the above-annotated bibliographies are interconnected since they share a common topical subject. Theme 1. Dictatorship This is one of the most dominant themes in ‘To Build a Fire’ by London Jack. This is especially depicted in the manner in which the protagonist treats his dog (Jack 1998). When he had had enough of the fire and wanted to proceed, he continues and forces the dog to leave the fire though it wanted to stay a little longer. The protagonist is dictatorial, and he does not take any other person's views into consideration. This is evident in the manner in which the protagonist laughs when he is warned against going since the weather could get worse. In Chopin’s Kate (1969) story on ‘The Story of an Hour,’ dictatorship is evidenced by Louise when she hears news of her husband's death. She first mourns but realizes that she had got an opportunity of being free. The extent of mistreatment must be very significant for Louise to wish her husband dead. Her joy is so much that she dies from overexcitement. OR 2. Stupidity and Death This is also a dominant feature in the two literary works. In London Jack's work, ignorance is displayed where the protagonist ignores several warnings only to end up dead eventually. On the other hand, stupidity in Kates work is depicted by the act of Louise allowing herself to be so carried away by excitement despite being aware of her health condition. The thought of repression makes her so happy that she dies (Kate 1969). Work Cited Wan, Xuemei. "Kate Chopin's View on Death and Freedom in the Story of An Hour."
