Many existentialists have also regarded traditional systematic or academic philosophies, in both style and content, as nonconcrete and faraway from concrete human understanding (Kaufmann, 1956). Sartre dealt with existentialist themes in his 1938 novel Nausea. Nausea is a philosophical novel by the existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, published in 1938. It is Paul Sartre's first novel (Paul-Sartre, 2010) and, as he would like to think, one of his best works (Charlesworth & Max, 1976). The novel happens in "Bouville" (actually, 'Mud town') a town like Le Havre, and it concerns a dejected history specialist, who gets to be persuaded that inanimate objects and circumstances infringe on his capacity to characterize himself, on his intellectual and spiritual freedom, summoning in the protagonist a sense of

With the belle dame playing a figure of love and fantasy and the agent of death and decay to the knight, it is as though Keats feels himself to be the knight.The poem very clearly indicates the life that Keats was living. There were a lot of emotions that influenced him to write this sensational ode. His mother had died of tuberculosis when he was 14; his brother, whom he had nursed through his final months, died of the same disease in 1818. Even before his brother’s death, Keats too would begin to show signs of the disease, returning from his rigorous tour of Scotland and Ireland with a harsh cough and an ulcerated throat. Thus he depicts his life after a few years towards the end of the poem by bringing the knight to a tragic death.

Robert Frost “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. (Poetry Soup)”, wrote one of the most famous American Poets, Robert Frost in his poem The Road Not Taken. Through this poem, he pulled readers into his imagination of differences there would be in life, if only he chose another road. In a sense, Frost stands at the crossroads of 19th-century American poetry and modernism, for in his verse may be found the culmination of many 19th-century tendencies and traditions as well as parallels to the works of his 20th-century contemporaries. (Poetry Foundations) Although he was a poet of traditional verse forms and metrics and remained steadfastly aloof from the poetic movements and fashions of his time, Frost was anything but merely a regional poet.
John Fowles’s The French Lieutenant’s Woman came to light in June 1969. It is clear that the novel tackles motifs such as love and intrigue, prototypical themes of the Victorian Novel. However, Fowles’s ultimate motive was not that of writing a conventional Victorian story but that of revealing an experimental narrative in which Victorian elements are explored from a perspective of the late sixties. Fowles presents us with a new reading of 1867, incorporating references of many of the events that took place during that gap of time. Barry Lewis states that “The postmodernist writer distrusts the wholeness and completion associated with traditional stories, and prefers to deal with other ways of structuring narrative.” (Stuart Sim (ed.)
His poetry was used to portray his feelings toward the Age of Reason and revolt against it. William Wordsworth’s poems The Tables Turned and London, 1802 both stick to the Romanticist idea of going against the industrial period but through different means such as approach and similar means such as diction and themes. Wordsworth uses similar means in his poem to share his message. The diction ,word choice, used in London, 1802 and The Tables Turned poem correlate by the strength of the words used and literary devices used to describe specific aspects of society. In London, 1802 Wordsworth uses many similes to compare his lost friend Milton to other things.
They were particularly influenced by Romanticism and medieval tales. Even though Wuthering Heights is now considered as one of the most famous novel in English literature, it was not so well received when it was published in 1847. Its themes were considered shocking for the readers of the Victorian society, especially the instability of social classes and gender inequality. In Wuthering Heights, the notion of Heritage is omnipresent. In this paper, I will explore the
John James Osborne is an outstanding playwright who radicalised British theatre overnight on 8 May 1956. He used some hitherto undiscovered or unexploited themes and subjects offering to challenge the traditional expectations of the audience. Since representation of reality was his great concern, most of his plays seem to be down-to-earth, close to everyday life. Although his plays are not didactic or argumentative like discussion plays, they have some affinities with drama of ideas in that some social and political issues are also raised there for the sake of changing the human condition. His protagonists, apparently misfits in their society, strive to overcome their helplessness and assert their dignity in a discordant world.
