Seamus Heaney once referred to the purpose of art as a way to shake us out of our habitual perception of things by making the banal, the everyday unfamiliar. It’s my philosophy that a book or a poem is a beautifully crafted piece of literary art that can be interpreted to ones own accord. Literature is a portrait of its author. To me this is where the true beauty behind literature lies, in ones ability to express themselves through words. English literature and language has been a subject that has gripped me, particularly in recent years.
The content is just one of the elements that determine the shape or form and are to be evaluated from this perspective.Theway of using language in the formalist point of view is different from using language by other approaches.The artistthat has a common language is trying not to be obsessed with conceptual limitations. The views of formalists are: 1) Departure or deviation from the norm: Formalists believed that standard literary languagedeviates from literary arts. Less text can be found in each paragraph or even a sentencethat somehow escape from the criteria. 2.Exotic and Defamiliarization: An important achievement in the theory of Defamiliarization is pure literature. Art puts obstacles in the way of reader to oblige him to think about the text and art.
It is based on philosophic grounds. The emergence of reader response theories in the field of literature teaching has shifted the exclusive emphasis on the text, while acknowledge its importance, to an emphasis on the reader. It was Louise Rosenblatt who began the march to a transactional theory of reader response, which emphasizes a mutual interaction between the reader and the text in the process of creating and recreating meaning. Texts do not come into existence alone nor do they acquire their meaning or invoke feelings unless they are read by a reader. Without a reader texts are no more than marks can a
Often people come to a fork in their lives that demand a decision. Unfortunately, the decision may not be easy to make even when evaluated closely. Robert Frost the author of “The Road Not Taken” intelligently emphasizes using theme, conflict, setting, mood, clever narration, and symbolism to express that making decisions is inescapable, a path can be researched thoroughly but is unknown unless it is traveled. This poem reveals the difficulty of decision-making as well as the human nature when confronted with conflict. 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.
When English is written in such a way the concrete meaning of the text fades in to abstract ideas and instead of choosing words because of their meaning, the writers choose phrases they have seen used multiple times before. This serves as a way to hide the message the writer is trying to convey to the reader as well as forcing the reader to work in order to unlock what
Usually writing is less spontaneous than speaking. As writing is a permanent record of knowledge accessible to any reader, the writer has to be cautious all the time about whatever he writes. The second language learners have to learn phonology, grammar, vocabulary and idioms of the language besides learning the mechanics of writing. So writing proves to be a challenge to these learners. They have to focus on these aspects while they are writing a text.
-says Nigel Watts in his book Teach Yourself Writing a Novel about the block that many of us comes across while we try to come up with something creative. It is entirely different from simply conveying information and is more inclined to the expression of thoughts, feelings and emotions. Many people find writing help give a vent to their innermost feelings, which they are otherwise forced to keep bottled up within themselves. It can also be a way of creative expression as expressing creativity may be a way that helps to foster meaning in our lives. Writing often helps to flush from the deep thickets of the self some thought, feeling, comprehension, question, music, the writer didn’t know was in him, or in the world.
What are the approaches or methods that teachers should use in teaching literature? Why is literature been considered as a tough, and nonsensical subject? Taking these questions as the base of the title of the paper - The Labyrinthine World of Understanding Literature – How to tackle it, it is enough to show how complicated literature is and there should be ways to tackle this problem. All these questions have been discussed in the articles and proper attentions have been directed to come up with the answers to
1. Introduction: The process of simplification has been affected in order to provide accessibility of a text at the primary level of language learning. The second language learner can have access to the great classic literature irrespective of its genre. They contain lexical difficulties such as abstractions and words which are not used in routine conversation, thus having lowing frequency in terms of their usage. If the same text is given to the learners at the beginners’ stage of language learning, they will definitely find it obscure, difficult to understand, and enjoy.
