Ernest Hemingway, graced the 1920 's with a shocking story about abortion in "Hills like White Elephants". At the time this work was not very well received by publishers and readers alike, although Hemingway only gives the reader the very basic description of his characters, and by only saying "the man" or "the girl", he leaves you having to fill in the blanks. The reader is able to deduce from the story, that the "girl" is somewhat less mature than the "man", by the content of the questions that she asked, and it appears she only wants to please the "man", by therefore putting the male character 's feelings above her own feelings. This is usually a sign of immaturity. The "girl" apparently has less life experience.
In resistance literature, the author does not need a specific shape in writing as it is just a way for expressing pain and insurgence so it has different sorts and it is not necessary to be presented in a specific way. In works of both prose and poetry, the aim is to convey a specific message to the colonizer and showing different stages of feelings towards it which is hate, rebellion, injustice and oppression. We can find the most obvious form of resistance literature clear in African American literature. They were enslaved and this is relate to the latter half of the 18th century. The form of resistance was very obvious in slavery in this time.
His ultimate failure to shed light into the darkness of his dystopian society in addition to his character flaws is what really impedes him from being recognized as a hero. Readers do not remember Winston for his courage in actually undertaking the treacherous act of rebelling against the Party’s authority, but rather his failure allows them to only remember his character flaws which almost seem to have destined him for failure. That is, in the totalitarian state of Oceania, there can be no heroes because are humans are only meant to be controlled like mindless drones. This assertion is clear in the final moments of the novel as Winston sits emotionless in Chestnut Tree Café facing the reality of the world – one where heroes are
In Of Mice and Men, these outcasts, Candy, Crooks, Curley’s Wife, and Lennie, are discriminated for their physical capabilities, race, gender, and mental abilities. In the novel Of Mice and Men, Candy is discriminated for his physical capabilities because his right hand is only a stump. According to Candy himself, “‘I ain’t much good with on’y one hand. I lost my hand right here on this ranch. That’s why they give me a job swampin’” (59).
An individual’s sense of belonging is closely associated to their feelings of security and insecurity in all aspects of life. In the novel Wild Cat Falling, by Mudrooroo, the protagonist has little security due to his race, and so refuses to belong, knowing he wouldn’t fit in anyway. This is also evident in a subtler way in Lauren Weisberger’s novel of the same name The Devil Wears Prada, in Andy’s job security. As she gets more confident in her job, she finds a stronger sense of security and subsequently belonging and acceptance. In the novel Wild Cat Falling, the protagonist remains unnamed, showing his lacking of identity, which heavily contributes to his sense of security.
The 18th Century Author Comparison This time period was known to be a time of conservative values and an age of reason, however clearly all did not engage in these values. Thus giving is writers who were extreme and outrageous like Swift, Pope, and Voltaire. Swifts story of “a modest proposal” has a subject regarding the burden of the poor, and how to make them beneficial to the public with the outrageous idea of eating children. This was a time when money was in short supply, and times were rough. He pretends to be objective and sensitive about the people’s needs, hiding his true agenda.
Death to Happiness While disappointment is a central idea in both pieces, each persona finds a resolve incongruent to the other. It seems the cause lies within the persona’s inability to appropriately expound upon their feelings or thoughts; after all, love isn’t a one way road. In “Porphyria 's Lover” the mood is immediately set by the sullen winds and tearing of elm-tops down for spite (Browning). The dreary, poor connotation encapsulates the current mood of the persona without his love present. Then, at last, “she sat down by [his] side/And called [him]” yet he didn’t reply (Browning).
The set is asymmetrical to illustrate how Torvald keeps the benefits of marriage all to himself. Meanwhile, Nora’s life lacks meaning. Therefore, her frustration with her marriage is connected to the identity that Torvald has assigned to her, as symbolized by the bird cuckoo clock.

Just think about it for a second, if you saw all these men talk about you like you’re not valuable, or talk about you like you were under them. It hurts, doesn’t it? Have you ever been in the shoes of Crooks, George, or Curley’s wife? In the book Of Mice and Men, it showed loneliness a lot, especially with the characters I just mentioned. Crooks and Curley’s wife actually admitted to being lonely while George showed he was lonely.
They don 't belong no place"..."With [George and Lennie] it ain 't like that. "” Steinbeck conveys the ardent notion of loneliness and the desire to overcome the accustomed predicament of having two protagonists that “travel together” in aspiration to conquer the stigma that encompasses the workers at the ranch. The repeated citation throughout the novella emphasises that the contrasting workers are not companions with one another but they are just there to receive a salary and one day, pursue their ultimate individual ambitions. Robert Frost’s, The Road Not Taken correspondingly plaudits the conceptualisation of isolation and loneliness within Frost’s written work. Frost utilises the language literary technique of hesitation devices / repetition and syntax: “Two roads diverged in
This supports the idea of Icarus life being unsatisfying and in a bigger that everyday life is boring and humdrum. Field uses imagery to generate a dull and dark contemporary image, he does that in the poem when he says “Only the feathers floating around the hat” (1), “Never dreaming that the gray, respectable suit” (11) and, “And nightly Icarus probes his wound” (21), Field’s use of weary imagery creates a world that is jaded and where one would not want to experience, yet, Icarus is caught in its grasp of failure and becomes obsessive of it. Field excellently demonstrates the aftermath of losing one’s beauty, and youthful spirit, he does this using poetic
