things it would be impossible to tell to anyone else, the things people write books about”. Knowing that the book was written after his political works and the heavy criticism surrounding his political ideals, the Confessions served as a way for Rousseau to justify himself and his work to society through divulging the details of his life through his coming of age. Writing in the first person he reveals details about his education and problems with authority as well as secret desires and crimes. While he claims these revelations are truthful confessions, there are moments in which Rousseau is an inconsistent narrator and his version of truth differs from true events. His inconsistencies call into question the meaning of the truth he produces.

1984 represents a dystopian novel as well as George Orwell 's attempt to warn people about the submissive society in which they could turn into by letting authorities take control over them.

That was me. That was the author of this book”. Vonnegut begins his novel with himself as the narrator, keeping the promise he gave to Mary. Vonnegut’s own appearance in his novel also allows for its metafictional attributes, meaning that the novel draws attention to its own structure and telling. Harold Bloom in his book Bloom’s Modern Critical Interpretations on Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five examines the similarities with Vonnegut and Norman Mailer making himself a character in The Armies of the Night, Vonnegut used his own real-life experience in surviving the Dresden bombing to establish authorial
(b) The purpose of this essay is to discuss Holden’s progression from innocence to experience in The Catcher and the Rye. In this essay I will be discussing Holden’s need to protect the innocent and innocence itself. I will be discussing the way Holden views society and adults. I will also be discussing Holden’s naivety in the way he views the world as well as his own innocence in regards to sex. This essay will be demonstrating how, although Holden makes progress towards the end of the novel in regards to gaining experience, he then regresses to his former state of innocence in the last chapter.
Throughout this novel we will be psychoanalyzing Holden’s abnormal behavior and grasp a deeper understanding behind his actions, thoughts and words through characterization, language, and attention to detail. With close attention to Holden’s behavior towards the beginning of the novel we can observe that he has a very dark outlook on life. Holden’s brother, Allie has passed away along with the passing of his friend, James Castle and this seems to be the primary reason for his perspective on the world and
When people hear the word ‘thinking’ they associate it with solitude because in most of the case people think through isolating themselves from the noises. There is an idea that if a person gets away from all of the normal, natural signals and distractions, his/her mind could function on a much deeper level. “In reality, thinking is often regarded both in philosophic theory and in educational practice as something cut off from experience, and capable of being cultivated in isolation” (Jacobus 301). When a person needs to write an essay, solve the difficult task, or do something which requires thinking he always tries to be isolated. Mostly, our system of education is based on that; we used to think in a quiet place because thinking is about concentration and concentration comes only in a solitude.
During this unit, we looked at a couple of short stories where authors developed particular literary features. One of the stories that we read was “The Tell-Tale Heart” where Edgar Allan Poe used flashback in the introduction in order to give more background information about the character. “Reunion” by John Cheever, consisted of a lot of dialogue with little description, but yet still created a visual image of the character in the readers’ head. Lastly, another story that we read in class was “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, where the author used specific details throughout the story to foreshadow the violent conclusion. While writing my story titled “Aiden”, I replicated the significance of literary features in those three stories such as flashback, dialogue, and foreshadowing.
The topic I chose to conduct my research on is the short story “The Story of an Hour”, by Kate Chopin. While reading this story the deeper meaning may not be initially apparent, but after some careful analyzation it is clear what led to Mrs. Mallard’s demise. I have chosen to conduct my research on “The Story of an Hour” because I previously studied it in my Intro to Fiction course last semester and it’s impactful message stood out. The deeper message being communicated through “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin is how oppression by patriarchal forces hinders female independence. If the last line of “The Story of an Hour” is taken in the literal sense, it can be perceived that Mrs. Mallard was not oppressed and was ecstatic that her husband was alive, ultimately being killed by the excitement.
