By the usage of an extra-heterodiegetic narrator with a zero/flexible focalization, the reader is able to observe the interactions between the characters more clearly and other characters that are not viewed perfectly get a more objective viewpoint than a heterodiegetic narrator alone can provide. . Overall, the use of Mr. Utterson and the narrator complement each other and help the plot to be more sophisticated than if Mr. Utterson had acted as the narrator himself. Utterson has also some kind of effect on the Victorian reader; he is able to convey the message of the gothic fears. The narrator lets the reader walk in the dark, along with Utterson.
The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, Postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; however, they believe that the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Moreover, Kurt Dinan writes in a nonlinear, flexible fashion by writing with a component of Mystery. Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature.
Previously dialects were used in literature fulfilling specific purposes like comedy or laughter only exploited by low characters: For the most part, the conspicuous vulgarity of dialect-even its funny look on the printed page-disqualified it as a serious language for the representation of personality in the nineteenth-century English novel. (Sabin 1987:16) During the Victorian age, writers have become more and more aware about non- standard language and different varieties of speech in a standard text; there was a heavy use of dialect in standard novels. Novelists differ in their use of dialect fulfilling different purposes that is to fit with the different sociolinguistic factors such as age, gender, style, social context; or following the movement of realism depicting regional,
Yet the distinct differences between them also affect the plots to an extent to which the suspense in the movie is less compared to the novel. Although the differences greatly alter the two, it makes each of them unique and exclusive from each other. Despite these differences, there is one theme that links both the novel and the movie together: that people with different personalities, interests, and appearances are also the same to each other. The book shows more examples of this theme than the movie, making the novel more understanding to other individuals than the film itself. Because of this, we would recommend the book and film to those who experience a likeliness to the conflicts in each storyline, such as a fight between two different social
This is understandable as stories can be interpreted differently by different people, who have varying perceptions of the world they’re reading about as well as the one they live in. Utopia and Dystopia are two terms that are absolute opposites of each other. As read in the Oxford Online Dictionary, Utopia is “An imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect”, while Dystopia is “An imagined place or state of things in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one. The opposite of
Even though they have the same theme, both, the poem and the play, address the themes very differently from one other. They address the themes differently because in “The Watsons Go To Birmingham”, the charcters don’t influence other characters, but in “Making Sarah Cry” Sarah does influence other characters.
1. One major symbol in Heart of Darkness is fog. The fog represents darkness and also helps distort the story by leaving just enough information to let the reader make their own theory of the scene. Although light doesn’t always represent goodness or enlightenment either. As Marlow had said “sunlight can be made to lie, too”.
Even though David Hume and Edward Burke were writing in the same time period, at first glance their ideas seem completely isolated. David Hume describes a subjective taste, in which a person’s taste depends upon a number of circumstances, but primarily a person’s moral opinions. Burke, on the other hand, argues that it is beauty that is subjective, and it depends on the concepts of pleasure and pain, rather than morality. Initially, these may seem relatively different from each other, but the use of the idea of subjectivity, a general thought regarding morality, and the concepts themselves actually show that the two philosophers had similar ideas. One of David Hume’s main arguments in regards to aesthetics is that taste is a subjective concept, and that everyone’s
“Everything is a symbol of something, it seems, until proven otherwise.” -Thomas C. Foster. Symbols are in place to express ideas and emotions through an indirect approach, any individual can view a symbol and interpret it in their own way. It is a more personal form of expression in literature. Although it may be hard to find a connection between the symbols in Erin Morgenstern's novel The Night Circus, there are still many of Freudians symbols that balance each other out. This is illustrated by color symbolism, imagery and the act of evil deeds shown throughout the novel.
Hawthorne was considered a dark romanticism rather than aromantic author. The dark romantics , as they were named, consisted of authors such as Hawthorne, poe and Melville. They were considered as almost anti-transcendentalists because they were so much different to the world. However, the work of these dark romantics did actually have much common with the transcendentalists. Both groups valued intuition over logic and reason.
In The Elegance of the Hedgehog, the film and the novel differ in several ways. One noticeable change in the film was not only the change of narration, but also the obsolete motivation of Renée hiding her intelligence. Not only is this change obvious, but it also affects the development of the film compared to the novel. One way it does this is that it removes the aspect of class differences in the film. The viewer still sees a few class differences such as clothing differences, and the treatment to other classes, but they’re not as noticeable.
Miss Havisham’s development over the course of the story as well as her actions demonstrates her precarious mental state and causes readers to make inferences about her past. Furthermore, her psychological reclusiveness also allow the reader to gain a deeper insight into what makes her who she is, despite the fact that the novel is not narrated by her. In fact, through Miss Havisham’s psychological development, Dickens clarifies the idea that although revenge may seem pleasant at first, it only creates more problems in the
