Don't shade your eyes - plagiarize

Reprinting the following paragraph from a term paper written by C.D. Harris in 1995, qualifies, I believe, as "fair use" under US copyright law:

As a young girl, she is essentially trapped in Gateshead. This sprawling house is almost her whole world. Her life as a child is sharply delineated by the walls of the house. She is not made to feel wanted within them and continues throughout the novel to associate Gateshead with the emotional trauma of growing up under its "hostile roof with a desperate and embittered heart."

On the other hand, though I am not a lawyer — don't even play one on TV — I'm pretty sure this doesn't.
