In “Araby”, the narrator was a young man who fell in love with his friend, Mangan’s older sister. He would do just about anything to prove his love and to win her love; the unrequited love. He went to the bazaar to purchase anything he could find for his love, but he did not make it on time. The narrator actually thought that the bazaar was a fun and stimulating place, but later realized it was only a place where people went to buy just about anything; a market. While he thought about the confusing moment he just had at the bazaar, he realized that Mangan’s sister could not care any less whether he had bought her something at the bazaar or not.

Though Mrs. Dalloway takes place in London on a single June day, 1923 and centers on Clarissa, a woman in her early fifties, there are many stories told in this novel through different characters and shifts in time. She turns her characters into a type of symbols in order to show how society lacks in humanity and how people take advantages of each other for personal gains.

In her diary she writes, “I want to give life and death, sanity and insanity; I want to criticize the social system and to show it at work, at its most intense” (Woolf qtd. in Thakur, 1965:55).

I have always had an interest in Edgar Allan Poe’s writing, poems and short stories. The way in which he writes is very peculiar and very original and unique to him. In grade 10, we made gothic movies and focus thoroughly on the works by Poe. He uses first person narrator in both “The Tell Tale Heart” and “The Black Cat” and he does this in a way that is so unreal, and it puts you in the mindset of the somewhat psychotic speaker. I think it is an important topic as there are so many gothic authors out there, but Poe has his own unique way of telling the story that are so distinct to him.
Antigone Reading famous plays draws our attention to many different aspects, we get wrapped up in the plot and the climax and forget to focus on the way the characters are developed through what they say. Sophocles does a fine job of demonstrating characteristics through certain phrases said by the characters. In Sophocles work Antigone, during 400 b.c, the time Antigone was written aspects of life revolved around your social status and your cultural values. In Antigone, their social classes ran like this: the gods at the top, then the government, and family at the bottom while men were above women. A few cultural aspects were, burial rights and women had the right to mourn.
This is shown in The Gift of The Magi. In The Gift of The Magi by O.Henry, a poor young woman, Della, who just married, desperately attempts to get her husband a delightful Christmas present. When she cannot get the funds, she resorts to selling her hair. When her husband Jim sees this, she says, “I had my hair cut off and I sold it because I couldn't have lived through Christmas without getting you a present.” This quote proves that O.Henry enjoyed writing about moral characters, for he often writes about characters like Della (the poor, kindhearted, young woman) who is in difficult situations but desperately try to do the right thing. The Gift of The Magi serves as a great example for O.Henry’s

A Very Short Story Ernest Hemingway is considered one of the most significant fiction writers of the 20th century. He is famous for his specific style of writing, the so called iceberg theory, which is clearly seen in his short stories and novels. Undoubtedly the unique thing that makes his short stories so special is the fact that after you read them you get the main idea but there are many things that remain unspoken or have a deeper meaning. You have to reread the text and use your imagination to get the whole picture of the text. Hemingway accomplishes that outcome by making use of his iceberg theory - the ability to omit as much as possible from the context and interpretation of the story, leaving the reader to intuit its entire meaning.
