Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, University of Erfurt, course: Victorian Poetry, language: English, abstract: Identity, imagination, thought, emotions and behavior all have an association with the term self-image. Every person possesses a self-image, but how important is this self-image for that person? What are the significant points to work with if we are speaking about self-image? How are self-images influenced by other people, and what can individuals do to influence their own self-images in such a way as to realize personal wishes. The intention of this essay is to find answers for these questions within the dramatic monologues studied during the seminar. In the course of this I make use of Robert Brownings "My Last Duchess" and Alfred Lord Tennyson's "Ulysses."
