187-207. Accessed October 4, 2014. JSTOR In “Praise and Advice: Rhetorical Approaches in More’s Utopia and Machiavelli’s The Prince,” John F. Tinkler argues that The Prince and Utopia can be contrasted by their usage of two classical rhetorical genres; the demonstrative art of praise and the deliberative art of political advice. Machiavelli and More represent the polarization between a realist and a moralist on political, economic, and social problems. Tinkler is a professor of Renaissance English Literature and Rhetoric at Townson University.
A comparative study of intertextual perspectives and contextual concerns in Fritz Lang’s film Metropolis and George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four enhances a responder’s appreciation of the power of literature to stimulate a sustained contemplation of transcendent values. Lang’s noncommittal and artistic portrayal of the dialectic between capitalist oppression and the proletariat revolution captures his deeply ambivalent attitude towards modernity and the social fragmentation of Weimar Germany. Additionally, Orwell espouses a need for equality and freedom through the lens of 1930s totalitarianism, providing a cautionary critique of the elite’s accumulation of arbitrary power and the complete subjugation of freedom. Hence, a comparative study heightens a responder’s understanding of how context influences composers and the enduring value of humanity and autonomy. The comparative study of enduring concepts potrayed within two texts of differing compositional milieus, allow for an enhanced understanding of how contempary social paradigms are internalised in the representation of these values.
The Concepts of Home and Exile in The Mimic Men a Novel by V.S. Naipaul Abstract The aim of this research is to analyze the presence of the concepts of “Exile and Home” in raising the identity crisis in V. S. Naipaul’s novel The Mimic Men (1967). It examines Edward Said’s theoretic contention of exile’s influence in creating identity crisis and in the view of Naipaul’s writing as an attempt to resolve the dilemma of the protagonist Ralph Singh’s identity. The chapter shows Ralph’s responses in endeavoring to form an individual identity while struggling from the burdens of colonial heritage. It is an irony or quiet paradox to apply, as this dissertation does, postcolonial theory to the postcolonial novels, or those novels depicting ex-colonial subject resistance to colonial traditions while living in the very heart of the colonial center, i.e., London; nevertheless, such an application reveals the conflicting sides of the characters’ identity, which has grown in part from attempting to fit in: "The mimic is a contradictory figure who simultaneously reinforces colonial authority and disturbs it"  Keywords: Post colonialism, Identity, Exile Introduction Exile as an awful experience, must be considered as a separate idea.
Indian Sense and Sensibility of the Gandhian Myth in Kanthapura The topic of this thesis is “Indian Sense and Sensibility in the Fiction of Raja Rao”. Before we proceed further, it will be in the fitness of things to throw light on the words ‘sense’ and ‘sensibility’. According to Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, ‘sense’ means: “a feeling about something important”1 (p.1392) and ‘sensibility’ according to this dictionary means: “the ability to experience and understand deep feelings, especially in art and literature”2. In this context, Indian sense and sensibility in the novels of Raja Rao means the novelist’s ability to ‘feel’ India as an important country and his ability to understand India as a nation and experience it not in geographical terms, but in physical, emotional, social, moral, religious, philosophical and metaphysical aspects of the life of people of India at large. The concept of ‘sensibility’ emerged in the 18th century Britain and was closely associated with the “studies of sense perception as the means through which knowledge is gathered”.3 William Walsh in his book Indian Literature in English interestingly traces Indian sensibility in the language of R.K. Narayan.
