At first glance, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein may seem like an odd jumble of texts within texts—letters, reflections from various characters and even references from other piece of literature dot its pages. However, it is suggested that this intertextuality plays a larger part in the novel. Specifically, Shelley lends a greater amount of validity and authenticity to the thoughts, feelings and motivations of her novel’s various characters by weaving all of these texts together. One of the best examples of intertextuality involves the creature’s Chapter 15 “book review” of Milton’s Paradise Lost, particularly the latter’s section on Adam’s Supplication. In Chapter 15 of Shelley’s Novel, the creature comments on the books that it reads and notes the emotional power of Milton’s Paradise Lost, specifically the passage in Book VIII where Adam addresses God and remarks on the wonder of his

The book begins in a stormy night, in Meg Murry’s attic bedroom as she is thinking to herself what a monster she is, she doesn’t do well in school, wears braces and large glasses, and will pick a fight with just about anyone who makes a mocking comment or crack on her “dumb little brother” or her “disappeared father”. Still she knows better than to believe such rumours, her father had been sent on a top secret government mission, and although her brother took more time than most to talk, when he did he used full sentences that were grammarly correct, as not to mentioned, he always seemed to know what was on her mind, and in nights such as these he would come up and lay with her till she fell asleep. Just as Meg is thinking this a thunder falls nearby and fear beats the best out of her.

Many reviewers noted that the novel has the plot which is sometimes chaotic. It is also reviewed that the novel’s imperfections meshed well with the flawed reality the book was trying to reflect. Jeanette Winterson, who is an award-winning English writer states about the novel as “Atwood knows how to show us ourselves, but the mirror she holds up to life does more than reflect…The Year of the Flood isn’t prophecy, but it is eerily possible” (17). Caroline Moore for the Daily Telegraph stated that “A sharp observer of the female psyche…Atwood’s richly fertile imagination plays to exuberant and often comic effect” and the Daily Telegraph also commented that “Margaret Atwood is genuinely inventive, rather than merely clever”. Michiko “Mitchi” Kakutani, who is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning literary critic for The New York Times, affirmed that “A gripping and visceral book that showcases her pure storytelling talents with energy, inventiveness and narrative

Lolita itself makes a journey through different genres which surprisingly favors the reader's interest. The novel makes a significant transition in terms of genre the instant the reader associates it with a generic category. Including the ongoing satire throughout the story, there are many elements that reveal the mixed genre of Lolita. The utopian idea of romance draws the attention of the reader at the beginning but the surprise of the brutal truth behind the plot .

One of the conceivable responses to such an enquiry would be the mix of enchantment and reality that Rowling has made through her dialect. The books with the intense device of "enchantment" turn normal, "genuine" topics and things into something superb and engaging. The blending of these two components make the reader identify with the story and yet experience the fantastical within the mundane. One of the primary characteristics of magical realism focuses on the fact that the concept of time where there are notions of both fragmented history and the concept of timelessness; the idea
Many claim that love is one of the most, if not the most, potent emotion. Yet anything with such power can sometimes engender uncontrollable irrationalities.

Throughout the novel, the story’s central themes, social class, gender relations, religion, and love versus freedom, all connect to the development of the protagonist, Jane.
