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.
In Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game,” the setting is a crucial aspect of making the plot believable. For example, the false channel leading to the island is so vital to the plot because it makes the story plausible. General Zaroff intrigues Rainsford by showing him the brilliantly gleaming lights that “‘indicate a channel . . .
The main characters in both literary piece must overcome challenges by using their knowledge. They must conquest what is getting in their way by using their intelligence; whether it may be Gods trying to delay his journey back home or defying society and trying to create diversity. Another way these books were similar was that both of the main character’s mentors were very smart and use their knowledge to help them. In the Odyssey, Athena helps Odysseus when he most needs her. In Fahrenheit 451, Faber helps out Guy when he is struggling with reading and his stress.
In both there is a history to keep drawing from that impacts what happens from there on out. It now has more substance after he explained how he sees it. I also found it interesting how much interpretations can vary. Obviously a person’s beliefs, opinions, experiences, and just about everything else can influence how they understand what they read, but seeing it in action is different. In the test case Foster sees Persephone, the history major focuses on the conflicts between the character and the social implications of the garden party, then the English major perceives that it’s a coming of age story where the character realizes that others hardships are not her own thus insignificant to her.
In the novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, there are many different important conflicts throughout the story. These conflicts are brought upon by the recurring motifs, such as redemption and loyalty. The different dissensions support the ideas of characterization by how they react to the sudden adversity in their lives. Amir attempts to redeem himself through Hassan’s son, Sohrab, by saving him and giving him a better life. Further developing the meaning of the story, connoting the mental struggle and the way priorities change over time, keeping readers mindful of the motifs and how they impact each character.
In the works of Literature an epiphany is “a moment of profound insight or revelation by which a character’s life is greatly altered” (24). In the short story “Cathedral” Raymond Carver uses epiphany to draw on the theme, blinded views can alter someone’s behavior. On the realistic level, epiphany advances the plot and character development because they are the basis for the story’s central action. They also help define the narrator and play a vital part in revealing the story’s theme. The following changes in the character’s views have shown an evident development.
Theme is defined as the underlying meaning in a work of literature. Authors develop theme to connect literature to our daily lives. “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, “A and P” by John Updike, and “Cold Equations” by Tom Goodwin, all have different themes, but place an important emphasis on the heartache and pain caused by learning the truths in life. In these short stories, each character has a realization about life and it changes their future perspective on the world. The theme in “The Scarlet Ibis” is the duality of pride, and the idea that although some pride is good, when you let it control you, it can be devastating.
Although the cultural collision challenges both Okonkwo’s and Nwoye’s identity, Nwoye’s outcome is an example of being successful in cultural collision is being flexible and able to adjust to the opponent’s culture while Okonkwo’s outcome, suicide, shows resiting to a different culture can bring a catastrophe. Achebe’s two main character’s responses enhance the overall message of the novel by displaying how these main characters changed when two cultures collide one another. It is crucial to be open-minded and adjustable in cultural collision in order to be
Life is full of inevitable change ad it is not always easy in order to understand our lives and ourselves, we much understand the sacrifices need to be made and this can mean having to face the unknown. Harwood’s collection of poetry explores the understanding that comes with change, despite the challenges it presents. Through her use of memories and the experience of losing what is valued in life, Harwood teaches readers that although the inevitable changes of life will not come easy, it is important to find ways to cope and move on with our lives. Being introduced to new aspects in life such as; marriage and children, a part of our lives can be taken away and sacrifices are to be made. “The Lions Bride” gives readers the understanding of a female point of aspect when life is changed
It is through this that we learn the authentic, underlying story that the writer wanted to tell; the one of the real Hedda and her struggle for freedom in order to overcome the constraints of society. As the play progresses, we become aware of the different symbols and how each one is a representation of something much deeper than it firsts appears. In this essay I have made reference to a few symbols such as the pistols, the piano, the character of Hedda and the importance of hair. There are many more symbols which feature in the play which would require further examination such as Lövborg’s manuscript; the child and binding love of George and Thea, and a symbol of the future. However, I have discussed the symbols that interested me, as a reader.
