Though Charlotte Bronte achieved both, breaking the rules and simultaneously following them, Virginia Woolf decided to transform her novel into a solid statement. The novel the Voyage Out is constructed upon the views and personal opinions of each character that appears throughout the narrative. There might be various explanations to why Virginia Woolf decided to narrate Rachel’s story in this specific way, one of them being that the author is trying to emphasize the options a young woman had in her life in the 20th century. Given the fact that Woolf decided to implement the love story of Susan and her fiancée is an implication that their story is a contrast from the one of Rachel’s love. Throughout the novel, the reader does not have the ability to relate to Rachel’s story emotionally, due to the way this novel is constructed.
1. - What is the secondary text all about? This secondary text is about the autobiographical issues lived by Virginia Woolf that triggered into writing the novel To the lighthouse. In this text, the author attempts to fund ideas of how the novels and written works of Woolf are represented into her personal experiences and her personality. As well, this secondary text shows the evolution of the characters of the novel and in which way are these characters stocked to their roles but also the connection they had with roles imposed by society during the epoch of Queen Victoria’s kingdom which promoted the particular devotion of women and men to maintain a certain configuration of family and the roles assigned to mother and father respectively.
The literature by women in this phase, characterized by self discovery, a turning inward, moved beyond feminism to a phase of courageous self-exploration, but also incorporated the double legacy of feminine ‘self-hatred’ and ‘feminist withdrawal’. The women writers of this phase thus moved towards a separatist literature of inner space focusing on the psychological rather than social aspects. Writers like Dorothy Richardson, Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf presented their version of modernism as a response to the material culture of male Edwardian novelists like H.G. Wells and Arnold Bennett. Androgyny, the sexual ethic of the Bloomsbury group and an important concept of the period provided a refuge from the confrontation with the body.
This type of writing style is an important element within her storytelling as it begins with a straightforward hit against the reader as the author addresses the other character with 'you', making it seem like she is speaking directly to the reader-for the intent of making the reader feel caught off-guard In this essay, I will discuss that the style of writing is essential in expressing her story in a more meaningful way: by compelling the reader with a forthright stanza and then, clarifying the rest of her story which provides the weight of the speaker's words to become more impactful as the reader reads it. The speaker tells of dehumanizing experiences throughout the passage while at the same time, includes her good memories along with how she lives her life-like any other
I’ll be separating foreshadowing into three parts, one discussing how different events predicted the ending, another one discussing how Lennie fit into the story, and the other is how foreshadowing plays a huge role in the story. Even in the first chapter, there are subtle hints that when read again, make sense. When reading the book for the first time, I knew that Lennie’s obliviousness and strength would play a part in the story. To explain further, why would the author put such a personality type in the story if there was nothing major to do with it? Lennie’s personality type is one that is usually put on a character for some kind of purpose.
Wuthering Heights George Eliot once wrote, “All meanings, we know, depend on the key of interpretation.” In the novel, Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte, based upon the way the narration appears throughout the novel, it influences readers to view the novel how Bronte wanted. When one reads a book, they don't typically go against the author, or her literary traits, because it was written to be interpreted a certain way, which is why Bronte used opinionated narrators as she did. Throughout the novel Bronte influences readers to interpret her view through the use of narration within Lockwoods anger, Nelly’s care, and Nellys mysterious side to create an overall theme of suffrage. Bronte strongly influences readers to feel and interpret
Using the techniques from her father, and figuring out how to learn on her own, Anne benefitted from the Elizabethan tradition which valued for the female education. She used this education to write her poems, which reflected her views during her life. Anne was concerned with the issues of sin and redemption, physical and emotional frailty, and also death and immortality. It can be seen throughout most of her work that Anne struggled to resolve the conflicts she experienced; between sensory and family experience and the promises of heaven. During her life, Anne felt more strongly connected to her family than to religion or God.
Literature is composed with many thoughts and ideas, the limitations are miniscule. For example, Sylvia Plath formulated her experiences and time period into a plot to compose her novel. As the book progresses, the protagonist provides insight on her journey and struggle to find happiness. In The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath utilizes an autobiographical protagonist to express purity versus impurity, as well as mind versus body in a world of double standards. Before one understands how Plath's experiences were influential upon her writing, it is crucial to know about her as an individual.
The Ramsays’ utter dissimilarities contribute to the ability to interpret Woolf’s novel by means of psychoanalysis, as demonstrated by Nussbaum. Additionally, she touches on Sigmund Freud, and his influence on the writing of Woolf, as Freud believed that when behaviour or conscious mental activity is explained to others, we rarely give a true account of our motivation, and this is the issue that Nussbaum deliberates throughout. Indeed, this is predominantly the motivation behind Woolf’s work, the ‘stream of consciousness’, which is evident as almost all of the events take place in the characters’ minds. In the words of Nussbaum herself, “emotions don 't stand still to be inspected like so many stones or bricks. The act of bringing them to consciousness frequently changes them; the act of expressing them to another almost always does so”.
