When we speak of the Physical bond, the Emotional bond always comes in mind, the following quote by Lucy Grealy “Autobiography of a face” makes this bond between the two characters apparent : “I treated despair in terms of hierarchy: if there was a more important pain in the world, it meant my own was negated. I thought I simply had to accept the fact that I was ugly, and that to feel despair about it was simply wrong”. (Autobiography of a face) Lucy had to accept the fact she was an ugly “Monster” instead of being depressed and despaired about it, she had to live on with her life. In a sense Scylla is similar, she herself had accepted being a Monster and she acted upon that, she did not lock herself up somewhere like in a cell. She as sad as it sounds, took the role that was given to her by others.

Sung-hune, Kang Eleanor Surridge English 11 HL 30 November 2015 Embodiment of language in dystopia Dystopian novels presents to the readers of an unpleasant society, in which is often convinced to be utopian and authors take in consideration of many factors to construct a dystopian novel. Most often, the authors of future dystopian novels exert themselves to using factors such as satire in which, draws the readers to think about their society in contrast to the novel. In presenting such satirical aspect, language becomes a key factor that emphasizes what the author may illustrate. In the future dystopian novel ‘1984’ by George Orwell and ‘Oryx and Crake’ by Margaret Atwood makes significant use of such language and their role, presenting the satirical aspects of a dystopian novel. The two dystopian novels ‘1984’ and ‘Oryx and Crake’ illustrates relevant factors of language employed in our society, purposed to manipulate the population as a satirical aspect.
The repetition of these short phrases helps emphasize the anger Walker felt after the accident because she thought she would not be able to ever look up again; Walker puts “you did not change” (49) after every paragraph that is provided with reasons as to her resentment towards her scar. This addition of these smoothly stitched in quotes into the paragraphs of her narrative administers the readers with the constant reminder her family had on her as she struggled to accept her scar (“you did not change” 49). Once Walker shares the story of her scar getting removed the “you did not change”(49) is repeated only once more; this break in repetition shows that once her view of physical beauty is restored she no longer has to ask her family if she changed because she feel as if she “become[s] a different person” (49) because she is now comfortable enough with her appearance that she lifts her head (“ Now that I raise my head I win the boyfriend of my dreams. Now that I’ve raised my head I have plenty of friends.”49). This repetition aids the audience get an idea of the author’s motives for not looking up when she was

ABSTRACT Representing multicultural communities and the resultant displacement in any book by the writers is a matter of quest and an urgent question in Diasporic literatures to get an answer for. There are certain ubiquitous and mundane characteristics and also some contradictions among the people, nations, groups, or continents. Nation has been considered as a form of “restrictively imagined collectivities” (Anderson 147) by Amitav Ghosh in “A correspondence on provincializing Europe”. Some writers started writing, discussing in their literature, the concept of displacement and the many difficulties involved in it. I am presenting Amitav Ghosh as one such novelist who brought it in his novels and through the imaginary characters displaying
“Ain’t even funny” creates irony as her morbid undertone allows the reader to see her dangerous capabilities, creating tension as she jokes about a serious matter. This presents Curley’s wife as cruel, however, we can also sympathise with her. This is because we can see her loneliness and isolations highlighted in the fact this is the only human interaction she receives. Curley’s wife’s mentally fragile as she is consistently dehumanised by the idea no one wants her opinions or thoughts on anything because she is viewed as a possession rather than a person, like many in the
On this subject, the critic Eve Sorum states in journal of modern literature A Reading of Eliot and Woolf that, the negative annotations that Mr Tansley and Mrs Ramsay manifest concerning Lily’s painting constrain Lily’s progress in painting; her ability to paint will only progress when those influences are destroyed or rewritten.
