The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, Postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; however, they believe that the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Moreover, Kurt Dinan writes in a nonlinear, flexible fashion by writing with a component of Mystery. Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature.
His motives for solving the crimes in all three cases change. Sometimes it 's for personal amusement but other times it 's for the reward it brings. I like some of the stories more than the other ones. I prefer stories like The Black Cat and The Tell-Tale Heart, because both of them follow the narrative of a criminal and the twist of it all makes things more interesting to me. Poe 's stories aren 't full of action, but it 's more about taking your time reading them and thinking hard about what 's been written.
He used the inspiration and style of Poe’s work, plus the monsters he had created in his head to write his novels. He used writing as an escape from his thoughts and a way to get them down on paper to create something others would enjoy ("Comparison of the Live and Work of E. A. Poe and Stephen King"). King’s writing varies from the literature written by Edgar Allan Poe. King is said to be more “transparent in the writing he does, rather than Poe. ("Comparison of the Live and Work of E. A. Poe and Stephen King").
For their dystopian ideas they both made them having some kind of rebel, who believes in more than just black and white or normal. They saw more to life and tried to make it better. The movie “The Giver” and the book “Anthem” both had a dystopian lifestyle, because they both had rules to follow and was under control by the upper class. The book “Anthem” by Ayn Rand was a good book. This book was all about a lie of a life.
Lenhoff Alan stated, “Fahrenheit 451 raises challenging questions. Is it better to be unthinking and content, or thoughtful and troubled? Can people really be happy if they are passive automatons? But do books--or, rather, the ideas in them, or the act of pondering those ideas--assure happiness and wisdom?” Bradbury encourages cognition. Bradbury calls the reader to awaken and contemplate the themes of the novel.
They have read my books. They have read many other books. They look at me with bright eyes and arrogant wonder." (Alexie 498) These two authors differ in this category because Alexie wants to change the lives of his culture, he wants to make a difference. "I throw my weight against their locked doors.
Iago vs. Grendel In well written short stories, movies, and books, readers are always drawn to the villians or characters with the dark backstories, and sometimes may even root for them. This is no difference when it comes to Grendel in the epic story of Beowulf, and Iago in Shakespeare’s Othello. But between these two fictional characters, most readers can feel for one more than the other. Both Iago and Grendel are seen as evil, but readers can sympathize more with Grendel because of underlying issues, like not being able to form relationships, while Iago shows tendencies of someone who can easily be diagnosed as a psychopath. In the story of Othello, there are many instances where readers can see what Iago has planned and watch it all unfold.
This novel is definitely a more challenging read than To Kill A Mockingbird as it requires lots of analyzation to fully understand the text. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the story of To Kill a Mockingbird. Although they are two completely different stories, they share themes of conscience and principles and doing what is right despite the opinions of
The authors of the Golden Age shows their faith and belief in the detectives (emphatically vulnerable detectives). The detectives in these stories dominate the plot and solve the mystery case by influencing the perspective of the reader. The detectives mostly are self-conscious and Golden Age does not expect the reader to solve the crime ahead of the detective. They are decidedly unaggressive, non-god like, nondominant and do not exude ‘macho-like’ qualities of a ‘real he-man’. In the Detective Fiction, detectives fall into three broad categories; amateurs, private investigators, and the professional police.
The future is full of chaos, as people prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies. Specifically, there is a literary shift from linearity and order to randomness and fragmentation. Consequently, postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; furthermore, the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Accordingly, different predictions on what will occur throughout the novel are the ideals of postmodernist literature. Moreover, one way an author can write in a nonlinear, flexible fashion is to write with a component of mystery.
Huxley and Atwood both used these to tell their story and have succeeded in using these techniques correctly; leaving the reader always wondering what will happen next. Both novels are fictional, however both are based on some non-fictional facts, which makes the novels more interesting. In Alias Grace, readers are always wondering whether or not Grace Marks committed the murders, each time the narrator changes, it changes the perspective of the reader which makes the reader more tied in. In Brave new world, Huxley chooses to add many details in the novel, however he does not tell readers what is actually happening in certain scenes, or who is narrating it, until two-thirds of the way, which also makes the readers think extra and wonder what is actually happening in the scene. In conclusion, although these two novels have differences, they both portray strong
My ardour for Literature grew when I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Both novels are similar and revolve around self-discovery. As a reader, it makes me feel like outlaw reading novels about knowledge and reading being a crime. In Huxley 's Brave New World, those who accept the new world lose their humanity. Bradbury shows how the lack of books can give the government too much power.
In Fahrenheit 451 the society is burning books and not getting any knowledge. I do believe our society is on the brink of doing the same and not learning anything. I believe that our society is making new technology to replace hard books and we are not learning from it. I also think that bradbury is right about the future of the society. In Fahrenheit 451 the society started to read less and less books because, they had made the same books but they were dumbed down.
The author manages to combine happy moments with sad ones even though the sad ones takes the larger share. In addition, he accomplished his aim of having an audience that is glued to the book all along sine it is both engaging and informative. The author has a perception that the world is composed of more bad things than the good ones. This novel will be important to me as I explore the themes of post-apocalyptic fears and human struggles. However, I do feel that he leans too heavily on sadness
The internet along with many other technological advances has brought humanity a long way. Like with all change, there are positive outcomes as well as negative outcomes, and while having information at our fingerprints and obtainable within seconds might be a positive thing, there are still going to be some negative results. Nicholas Carr’s 2008 article published in The Atlantic, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?,” explains what Carr believes to be some of the negative effects that the usage of the Internet has brought upon us. Carr believes that the Internet is shaping the way that we think and that humans are losing the ability to read long pieces of writing. The purpose of his ironically long article is to convince his readers that the Internet is actually changing the way that we think and interact and to shed light upon something that many people experience, but they might have not realized it yet.
