Late modernism is often questioned as to whether it differs in any way from the modernism period. This period describes a movement that arose from the modernist era and reacts against it, by rejecting its’ great narratives and abolishing the barriers between the traditional forms of arts, in order to disturb the genre and its literary production. The late modern writing explores mortality, the flaws of culture and also the potential aesthetic form. Writer William Faulkner, is seen as a modernist writer that uses an elaborative writing model where all stances are ambiguous and for introducing irony and humor in his literary constructions. Faulkner addresses in his writing freedom of expression and individualism, which are a clear break in the traditional and outdated formal model of writing that describes the creative strategies and the specific style that portrays him as a late modernist.
“Sigmund Freud saw the uncanny as something long familiar that feels strangely unfamiliar. The uncanny stands between standard categories and challenges the categories themselves” (Turkle, 48). In John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman and Aphra Behn’s Oroonoko, the reader is invited to explore strangeness within what is familiar. In these texts, the characters, and even the content, are complex and at times, incomprehensible. The struggle of the narrator and the other characters to make another seem socially acceptable questions the human need of categorizing all of life into something that can be taken apart and understood.
The novelist obviously propagates the idea that suffering is a supreme discipline and one has to undergo pains to be able to feel intensively. Similarly, the painful experience of Isabel, to use Dorothy Van Ghent’s words, “by providing insight through suffering and guilt, provides also access to life − to the fructification of consciousness”228. Isabel walks out of her shattered romantic prismatic illusions of life and finds a clear mirror-image of the human nature which is always a mixture of good and bad. Her voyage from innocence to experience, in fact, results in her expanding consciousness. No doubt, she has to renounce her comfortable life to gain knowledge of the human world but it is, actually, what Tony Tanner says, “the birth of a conscience out of a waste of life”150.
Faulkner’s auctorial protocol exhibits an intense distrust of language, as words demonstrate their fluctuating referentiality at every step. A text as tightly crafted as As I Lay Dying, whose language and technique are so obviously foregrounded, in conforming to the conventional requirements of narration, plot and character, inevitably betrays the tensions inherent in its own functioning. The novel treads the borderline between the comic and the tragic modes, towering above a commonplace collection of literary genres that include the epic, the heroic, the mock-heroic, the grotesque, the gothic, the picaresque, the romance, the farce, parody and pastiche, all the while maintaining the tenuous balance of its own distinctiveness and generic individuality.
His fiction typically addresses the meaning of human existence in an increasingly impersonal and mechanistic world. Writing in a humorous, anecdotal style, Bellow often depicts introspective individuals sorting out a conflict between the Old world and the New world values while coping with personal anxieties and aspirations. Saul bellow has been a most persevering chronicler of America’s restless search for a definable self, articulating more common needs and ills of American society at
In David Hume’s account of self and personal identity recorded in book I of the Treaties, it is stated that self is but a bundle of perceptions. He questions the assumptions made with regard to the existence of self and states that there is no basis to believe that the self exists or that perceptions are bind together by a self over time. All that can ever be known are the perceptions that are available to across a period of time, and therefore the perceived self is just a series of perceptions that have resemblance and cause-and-effect amongst them. As a much-debated theory within the philosophical realm, his views are often the topic of discussion and argument, only to note that there is a shift from just merely attacking the view directly
The type of unification cannot involve the bringing together of separate things. This remains to be seen and explicated later on. The distinctions within it cannot be purely potential since then they'd be nothing. It stands to reason, then that the distinctions within the ultimate unifier must be purely-actual distinctions. The purely-actual distinctions must have an ordering to each other insofar as they stand in a unity, but there cannot be a division of their ordering to each other and their individuality and distinctiveness, lest act and potentiality be introduced in each.
According to Saussure, the symbols give us the definition of reality. The customary meaning of words representing to the truth are not adequate to Saussure. He contends that words give meaning with reference to different words and never the truth. It is the means by which the linguistics structuralism started. Before Saussure, Linguistics had been concerned about how a language develops after some time.
I explicitly agree that the poetry of T.S Eliot is unquestionably dominated by thought-provoking reflections which are complemented by powerful imagery, leading the reader into the state of mind of Eliot himself. Initially, I abhorred Eliot’s poetry. His poetry, then, for me, represented a confusing and exceptionally difficult body of work and I found it similarly difficult to form any kind of genuine response to his poetry. In spite of this, over my past couple of readings, I have formed a muscular response to his literary work. Personally, I comprehend the poetry of T.S Eliot as being enigmatic and remarkable which I believe is shown through the power of Literary History.
Many confidentiality agreements do not have a disclosure provision. This provision states that in return for agreeing to keep the information confidential, the Recipient has the right to receive the information. Since this puts a duty on the Discloser to disclose its confidential information, the Discloser should carefully consider the scope of any such provision. For this case it may help the company not to close the company by not disclosing specifically but by just giving them an idea of the things that RWC do, it may not be exact but the meaning or the thought of the plan is
