The point is, Death does not out rightly reject God. The only way to find Him, he says, is by renouncing the world (as many sects and sages opine). This does not necessarily mean he champions the path of renunciation, or considers all things on earth as Maya ‘illusion’. There is no denial of the truth that “the world is too much with us, /The world is a myth that happened to come true” (10.4.166). The Lord of Death is the adherent and the advocate of the ground realities of life.
For Raskolnikov, extraordinary men are the ones allowed to break the law because they are capable of living with the consequences of their crimes. Also he tells them, “An extraordinary man has the right … that is not an official right, but an inner right to decide in his own conscience to overstep … certain obstacle, and only in case it is essential for the practical fulfilment of his idea (sometimes, perhaps, of benefit to the whole humanity).” (pg. 206). An extraordinary man has the ability to decide for himself whether or not to act and most of the time this action comes to
He expects the text to learn some basic facts about the people of that story, such as the location of which they come or where to go. Also unknown names and master storyteller, and Jacques surname, which contributes to the mystery and suspense of the text. 'Normarivna narrative expectations constantly disappointing systematic denial of the simplest basic facts such as the master's name and destination and purpose of travel' (Furst: 1984, p. 160). Narrative situation of the novel surrounds the uncertainty created by the lack of information, namely their denial, and it encourages the actual readers to wonder who is the narrator, and to whom he speaks. The dialectic between the fictional narrator and fictional readers is what makes the fundamental dynamics of the text.
Existentialism is a philosophy that emphasizes individual existence, freedom and choices. The main belief is that there is ultimately no meaning at the very core of existence. There are only two states: “existing” and “not existing”; death is the end of existence and nothing lies after that. It was due to this that the school of thought rose to prominence during the shadow of the great wars amidst an atmosphere saturated with uncertainty and chaos, a time when beliefs where questioned and people were desperately searching for a purpose in life. To existentialist
Camus concluded that a life has no purpose. He refused to accept that there is meaning beyond any existence and successfully conveys this belief through Meursault. ‘The Outsider’ is organized into two parts, in which the central event, the shooting of the Arab and trial takes place in between the two parts.
By dissecting the creative nature of Bleak House, the reader can see that it was written to have people see and understand the societal nature of the times. In Bleak House the story shows the struggles of classism, sexism and other societal ailments of the time. A perfect example of this in the story was when Jo was being questioned by the courts, but his testimony was deemed unreliable because he was from the lower class and seen as lacking in Christian faith. The incident itself was a very minor issue in the story, but that goes to show that novels themselves take small examples and bring them together to give an overall picture of what the author is show. This would go to prove Mill’s point that novels come from incident.
Robert Frost develops a theme in “The Road Not Taken” that is relatively confusing simply due to being a short poem that causes readers to perceive the concept differently depending on their worldview. For example, is Frost angry with his decision or enthused in selecting the less traveled road. Arguably, the poem stresses the human instinct of making decisions as well as emphasizing the lasting effects of a decision. Frost seems to be representing a decision in his life, possibly his own but it is not clear. The irony is the double perspective of deciphering the best metaphorical route to take.

Is the book more than it seeks to feign? Might a reader propose such a thought to himself, his reading of the book and its’ messages will also vary; as such cynicism will pull apart the core aspect of the novel: its emotional story-telling. Truly, The Kite Runner’s meaning can fluctuate within different interpretations of its message; it can be read as a simple novel, or as an elaborated piece of propagandistic literature. First, how can a novel have multiple meanings? In the classical sense, the ability for a story-telling narrative to be read differently comes inherently from its subjectivity, a rather philosophical matter that explains how different subjects, due to their qualities and thought-processes, can give the same thing different
They are skillful to create obscure allusions to other authors and events, which the reader should know. The abstract realities of Beauty, Truth, Justice, are less understood in this materialistic world although we are in great need of them today but the modernist tends to avoid them and writes about things they are uncomfortable with. Another quality the moderns have is cynicism in their work. The advancement and power struggles have turned them against the old and present society although they have certain idealism but they don’t have faith in their fellowmen. It is particularly concerned with writing away from established rules, and re-examination of every aspect of existence .it was against Victorian artificialities and moral bankruptcy.
