The Initiation Theme in Atonement From a jealous girl whose mind is full of unrealistic thoughts to a young nurse who is extremely regretful for what she has done, and finally to an old and famed writer who wants to make atonement for her mistake through writing, Briony, the heroine in Atonement written by Ian McEwan finally achieves self-understanding and learns the essence of life in a long and painful way. As initiation story is the kind of novel which “may be said to show its young protagonist experiencing a significant change of knowledge about the world or himself, or a change of character, or of both, and this change must point or lead him towards an adult world” (Marcus 222), Atonement can be seen as a typical initiation story.

Phrases such as ‘knives cutting the heart (刀割心); gut-wrenching sorrow (肝肠断); crying all through the night (透夜哭); two streams of tears (双流泪); and anguish in the heart (气入心)’ are repeatedly used and convey the felt anguish and grievance.

Boussard analyses three ballads in her writing and they may serve as a demonstration of the themes addressed in Nüshu autobiographical writing.

Ishiguro employs Kathy with a narrative style which has a realistic touch to allow the readers to realize her nature, She narrates the novel, So the events are based on her flashbacks and stream of consciousness. she spends time to think carefully about what she says, as if she speaks personally to the reader, she exclaims "I want to talk about such and such but first I 'll have to go back a bit to give you the background and explain why” (Ishiguro 138). according to Ishiguro, he employs Kathy as a mean to not give too much information to his readers in order to keep the element of suspense alive and at the same time foreshadowing an impending death. This style of narration also consists of constantly switching which contributes to Kathy 's disorganized chronological perception of time and its significance. she mentions sometimes how she does not clearly remember certain events.
In the short story, A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner is dark, yet emotional. While reading this story, I couldn’t stay focus for long and I had to read over the passage more than twice. The first paragraph tells us how everyone went to Emily’s funeral, but later on, throughout the passage, it explains about how everyone would be excited to get rid of her. Emily’s impression on everyone was that she was “crazy” like her other relatives, but in the end, we learned that she just wanted love. A Rose for Emily had plenty of main ideas throughout the passage, but it was one important theme that I learned from the story.
The arguments are both strong and appealing. In Neville Chsmberlain's "In Defense of Appeasement", he has read letters and tellagrams that have come to him and his wife about the prayers for his success. Even if most pf the letters have come from women from their own country and from other countries like France, Belgium, Italy, and even Germany. With the war about to start and/or have started the pressure has grown upon him even more when he is reading the letters of the women and feeling the horrible, fantastic, and incredible feelings that are trapped within the letters and tellagram. In Franklin D. Roosevelt's "State of the Union Address" has also relized the pressure that has been put upon him.
Collins made us (the readers) laugh, cry and wait throughout The Woman in White. Maybe in the adaptation we had to read, these feelings (happiness, sadness and making us wait) weren’t as clear as in his novel, but we can say that Wilkie Collins definitely made the readers wait. We see it through all the adaptation, for example, when Collins tries his harder to make the love between Walter and Laura impossible till the end. In “The Woman in White”, Collins made us feel sad and frustrated a few times, for instance, when the love between Walter and Laura can’t be possible, or when we discover that Sir Percival confined Laura into an asylum by pretending that she was Anne. In my opinion, this adaptation didn’t make the readers laugh, but indeed made us happy with a satisfying ending, when Walter and Laura get married and they have a child that inherits Limmeridge House.
