I will show how presenting the life story in a visual manner contributes to a dipper understanding of what the autobiographer tries to convey, and how it helps to empathize with the autobiographer. Furthermore, I will try to show how the illustrated autobiography emphasizes the political and social story that Satrapi shares with the reader. Graphic autobiographies are a fairly new genre, and it is a very attractive one. There is a famous saying that "a picture is worth a thousand words", and in did that is the case, sometimes in Satrapi 's autobiography there is simply an image and from that image one can absorb so much information, much more than from any ordinarily written words. As Whitlock points out in his article "The Seeing "I" of the Comics": Cartoon drawing is, to
Here it is presented some suggestions for those who intend to study and observe these literary works from other perspectives. In spite of the fact that Doris Lessing and her works have a great reputation around the world. These days, investigation in postcolonial studies is developing in educational system because postcolonial writers have a great analysis in different contexts. In this field, some important topics such the pre-colonial cultures and communities, the formation of empire, the effects of colonization on postcolonial history, economy, science, and culture, the cultural production of colonized societies, feminism and postcolonialism, the impact of colonization on marginalized people and the outcome of colonization on economic and cultural contexts. Finally, the products of colonialism cannot show itself.
Because F. Scott Fitzgerald and Norman Mailer are authors who contributed to the shape of their national identity and consciousness, their philosophic roots and American literary, as well as the American cultural currents of their times have been comprehensively explored in their literary art. A point of accord among scholars is that Fitzgerald and Mailer’s contributions to American culture reach far beyond their roles as American literary artists—they are not only considered voluble social critics of twentieth-century America, but eloquent interpreters of their American cultural milieu. Literary works such as The Great Gatsby and An American Dream stand as evidences to these authors’ commitment with and apt understanding of their cultural moments, yet these works also publicize that their art takes shape as a vision enthused by the intellectual and philosophic currents of their time. Materials and Method As a first step, the researcher read books and papers that present the key issues concerned in Philosophical ideas in 20 century. In the second step, the researcher read biographical works on Norman Mailer and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life to get a clear picture of their background, their development as writers and their response to the period they lived in.
The manner of how you look to something will determine its meaning and importance. Books are as such, because based on the manner you chose to analyze, it may become noticeable indirect thoughts hidden within the text. In Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury, for example, these deeper and sometimes hidden connotations are evident in different passages throughout the story. One event that can be remarked by such analyzation is from page 58 to 61, when Beatty, an important character shares his point of view of life through an extensive and convincing speech to Montag, the protagonist. If looking meticulously through different perspectives and through critical lenses such as psychoanalysis and new criticism, it becomes evident the importance
O. Henry’s situational irony, Mark Twain’s social commentary, and John Steinbeck’s social inequalities are all examples of unique writing styles that make classic authors and their classics timeless. O. Henry’s unique style is shown in his work. A style O. Henry writes with is situational irony. Situational irony is when there is a surprise, or the story has a plot twist. In the story, The Gift of the Magi, Della
According to Martin Payne, narrative therapy encourages “richer, combined narratives to emerge from disparate descriptions” of experiences (Payne 7). The strong use of narrative in Half of a Yellow Sun is an essential aspect of the novel, with the narrative being interdependent on the mixture of many different stories being told by a variety of narrators. (De Mey 9). Adichie employs the intersections of these different narrative strategies within the novel as Ugwu writes the story of his experience of the Biafran War, while for Olanna; the narration of her traumas to Ugwu is central to being able to overcome its stifling affects. Through these characters’ experiences with narration, Adichie is able to illustrate its potentially therapeutic effect.
I have also tried to understand Achebe's novel better by studying his non-fictional discourse on colonialism--- essays and interviews, for instance, which have been discussed further in the chapters mentioned. I think the findings regarding Achebe are significant even today because literature gives us a different perspective on reality. Achebe believed that literature has social and
There were a variety of concepts of meaning and methods proposed in approaching literature. In this assignment, I intend to apply Foucault’s ‘author-function’ and structuralism to read and interpret Jean Rhys’ short story. Foucault argued the necessity to examine and analysis the author as a position and function in discourse in ‘author-function’ analysis. Connors (at pp 59-66) also proposed that looking into the author’s life/experience, intentions and unconscious motivations are some ways in unraveling meanings of a work. To apply such analysis, knowing the author is a great starting point.
