As a result of their wrongdoings, many problems arose in the novel. In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, the carelessness of the characters and immorality bring about chaos in the novel. Much chaos arose in the novel, and it is a direct result of a number of mistakes that the characters made and how lackadaisical they really were. The characters in the story were very careless in many ways. The first large scale mistake, was made by Jay Gatsby.
Stevenson captured these indirect lessons through symbolization in the text. In the novella of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the night time and fog backdrop wherever Edward Hyde showed himself suggested to the alluding of Hydes indescribable physical attributes along with his strong impulses that goes on deep in the human mind, shown through his out lashes on his victims, from his lack of morals and sense of ego and
Death, darkness, and looming demise. Most Gothic literature begin in a gloomy, decaying setting, associated with the grim image of death, to create distress and anticipation as booklovers inadvertently fall into the poisonous traps woven with cautiousness by the authors. Traditional literature, like Charles Dickens’ ‘Signalman’, does this by beginning with well-produced portrayal, elaborate language use and supernatural indication. In comparison, contemporary literature, like Roald Dahl’s ‘Lamb to the Slaughter’, utilises familiar setting and a range of characters with different personalities. Both genres build inexplicable anxiety within readers as the plot of individual story progresses as they use a variety of description and literary devices.
The Danger of Suspicion In The Crucible, Arthur Miller tells the story of a town that is completely out of control. People accuse each other of witchcraft, even though no are witches in Salem. Several things led to the mass panic. A major factor is, that the people in the town of Salem had a deep distrust for each other. They were jealous and always suspected that the other people were trying to take things that were not theirs.
In the novel “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, Stevenson uses descriptive language to create a mood of terror. The author uses events and places to create a feeling of terror in the reader’s mind. The Black Mail House is the first place to create a sense of terror, following The Door. The way that Hyde is described by people is a suspenseful description for a person. In my opinion, these three chapters are the most suspenseful in the rising action.
But as of today, the evil myth and the borders between reality and fiction as well as history, literature and philosophy are blurred, and so are the roles of Good and Evil. Evil – probably one of the most fascinating topics, not just in fairy tales, but throughout literature. Evil
Beyond the traditional physical suffering, and other effective methods of torture but the scariest torture that citizens fear the most were hidden machine guns.“One paradox of the ministries was when Winston described the Ministry of Love which usually gives the reader an imagery of a warm and welcoming building, however, on the contrary it is described by Smith as “a place impossible to enter except on official business, and then only by penetrating through a maze of barbed-wire entanglements, steel doors and hidden machine-gun nests.”This previous description contradicts the reader’s automatic conception of the ministry of love. Another paradox is when Winston describes the ministry of truth. The ministry of truth traditionally represents a place of genuine honesty, however the slogan “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”, contradicts the idea of truth, as it preaches lies and misleads the public. Another quote ,“Theyll shoot me I don 't care they’ll shoot me in the back of the neck I dont care down with Big Brother they always shoot you in the back of the neck I dont care down with Big Brother”. Even though in 1984 the government had surveillance technology through telescreen to control citizens, but there is still technology in today’s to control or track citizens such as cell phones.
Where there is a departure from the traditional gothic, they still point us to something unknown or strange.The manner in which John keeps her confined to her room for “rest” is chilling and can be seen as controlling as we will explore further. The other features of the room, however, the barred windows for instance and the wallpaper and the feeling they engender cannot be fully understood through any other lens. The Gothic horror story carries conventions in its setting, theme, point of view, and characterisation. Gilman follows the conventions of the Gothic horror story to create feelings of gloom, mystery, and suspense that are essential for a compelling storyline.
Significance of Reputation in Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Robert Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde illustrates the significance of concealing your secrets and desires in order to maintain a flawless reputation. He creates distinctive characters with various reputations and contrasts their abilities in retaining one. Stevenson emphasizes this through Hyde’s actions, when portraying Utterson’s flawless reputation, the contrasting vulnerability to desires between Utterson and Jekyll and the creation of Hyde. As a man of pure evilness, Hyde creates disruption through his actions. His first appearance in the novella associates him with a crime of abuse.
2.The mood that this creates is creepy and frightening. B.Stevenson also uses imagery and diction to characterize Mr. Hyde by stating” you remember your vows : what follows is under the seal of our profession and now you who have so long been bound to the most narrow and material views you who have denied the virtue of translational medicine you who have derided your superiors-
