The story of a white woman who fake-tanned and permed her way into a position as a black civil rights activist in Spokane, Washington, was too juicy to ignore. Late last week and over the weekend, Rachel Dolezal became the latest face who launched a thousand think pieces when her parents, who are by all accounts two white people from Montana, told reporters that Dolezal has been posing for years as a black American. In response, many have drawn comparisons between Dolezal and last week s op-ed fodder, Caitlyn Jenner. Some in the queer community have any possible similarities between the two, focusing instead on. But a reasonable person could wonder what the difference really is between someone who is genetically white and feels culturally black, versus another who is genetically, chromosomally male and feels themselves to be female.
Compare and contrast the works of Hawthorne and Poe eNotes
There are differences and important ones but they re not necessarily as easy, or as obvious, as the queer community would like them to be. Race and gender have a lot in common in our culture. Both are socially constructed categories that often determine how individuals are viewed and treated by others and where each person falls in a rigid and oppressive hierarchy. Both are constructed on top of biological markers that are observable in infancy. Because of this, they both tend to be seen as clearly defined and immutable, in spite of the fact that there are individuals (for example, black Americans light enough to pass as white and people with intersex conditions) who don t fit within the pre-existing categories.
Historically, race and gender hierarchies were even more rigidly enforced than they are now, leading to decades of struggle by those on the bottom to gain the rights and privileges they d long been excluded from. In infancy, Dolezal and Jenner were each assigned to a high-status race and gender category, respectively. Both subsequently altered their appearances and sought entry into a different, lower-status category. The discomfort and anger some people who were born or feel toward each of them comes from a similar place to those who never had a choice of whether to grow up being discriminated against and seen as less than, it feels appropriative when a privileged person claims that status in adulthood. There s no procedure that could give Caitlyn Jenner a girlhood of athletic options limited by her gender, and no hairstyle will ever result in Rachel Dolezal s grade school teachers lowering their academic expectations for her based on her skin color.

In their works, they examine the conflict between good and evil, the psychological effects of guilt and sin, and even madness and derangement in the human mind. However, it is in their approach to these aspects that they differ. Two authors of Dark Romanticism, both Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe explore in their writings the mystical and the melancholy aspects of America's Puritan thought.
Whereas Hawthorne, as a moralistic and didactic narrator examines the dark regions of the soul--what he called the truth of the human heart --in portraying the innate depravity of human beings with such characters as Roger Chillingworth of Th e Scarlet Letter who spiritually transforms into what he himself calls a fiend, Poe finds this darkness more in the human psyche. And, to indicate the effects of man's evil, he utilizes the unreliable narrator who often in the end is terrorized by his own realization of the grotesque workings of his mind and the real horror that lies in what humans are capable of.
