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.
After carefully analyzing the tale "Catskin" I found that the story is more complex than I could have predicted at first. Although the intended moral looks straightforward and supported by the narration, I found examples of how Catskin behaves differently from the blameless heroine that one would expect from a fairy tale 's princess: she is the perpetrator of a fraud, she behaves like a predator only waiting for the right occasion to strike and, finally, she craves to have her social prominence recognized. The moral of the story, which initially seemed to be about intrinsic virtues eventually granting a happily ever-after, fails when the overall conduct of Catskin is considered. However, the most controversial part of "Catskin" seems to be that the story actually presents a moral. The importance of the three beautiful gowns in the recognition of the protagonist 's beauty and the eventual father-daughter reunion after such a long time since Catskin 's son was born, prove how important facades are in the tail.
How can a righteous lady and a vindictive woman both be drawn to the same man? Better said, how can one man be involved with such different women? Apparently, these mysteries will forever remain unsolved. However, Arthur Miller surely knows how to deal with this controversy in his play The Crucible, through the characters of Elizabeth and Abigail. These completely opposite women serve as foils for each other since the differences between them help highlight their individual persona.
Although the American novelist, Edmund White, believes that Colette is not taken seriously by many French readers just for the fact that she is a woman working in a primarily historically male-dominated field, it can be argued that this is not the only reason on why some people might not take Colette seriously. According to the Meriam-Webster Dictionary, the word serious is defined as: “Of or relating to a matter of importance.” However, even though Colette’s work is certainly interesting, she is nonetheless a novelist that writes fictional stories, and some, like The Hand, are quite exaggerated. Although a great writer indeed, she is a fictional writer, not a historian, economist, or a scientist, all of which write non-fictional work that
These intense feelings for her beauty are the only feelings he shows in the novel. In addition, Jane is overwhelmed with his good looks and wealth. Love at first sight does not mean happiness or trust and may lead to a hole in many of the important parts of a relationship, for example confidence. A lack of confidence is seen throughout the relationships in Pride and Prejudice. The failing of marriages
On one hand, the first acts cruelly because of the pleasure he has from controlling and manipulating others. On the other, Daniel acts moved by his need to know who he is, but he eventually finds out that he is destined for great things. Finally, it is possible to state that George Eliot investigates three main institutions in Victorian era (education, marriage and occupation) to explore the possible roles of women and men in society. In fact, Eliot seems to understand that that gender, more than any other trait in human nature, is influenced by the environment one lives in.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, figuring out the true protagonist is can be difficult because there are so many characters that could be the protagonist. Some people might say that Scout is the protagonist because she is the narrator and also the main character, but that does not make her the protagonist. The next thing that someone might say is that Jem is the protagonist because he changes so much, and he becomes more responsible, choosing to do the right thing more often than not. In reality, the true protagonist is Atticus, and this is because he is the one who tries to pass his values of right and wrong on to Jem and Scout. Atticus always does what is right, regardless of what other people think.
Jane Goodall was known to have said that “The greatest danger to our future was apathy”. Society has many negative perspectives on apathy, and on people with apathy. However, people often don’t consider the flaws in themselves, that can be considered as a detriment in modern society, which can be seen as extremely hypocritical. Apathy can regard to many aspects in society such as religion, relationships with others, or even not having the societally approved reactions to certain events in one’s life, such as death, anniversaries, and accomplishments. An analysis of literary elements and techniques present in Albert Camus’ novel, The Stranger, displays the idea that an individual’s indifference to religious norms often cause society to have a judgemental view on that person.
At this point, her life has been spent in servitude to the “outward existence which conforms.” She performs the duties obligated to her by virtue of marriage; rearing children and caring for a home. This oppressive existence brings no satisfaction to Edna, and ironically, she is more alone in marriage than she has been at any point in her life. This despondence will cause her to seek fulfillment from other sources, leaving her vulnerable to the advances of Robert Lebrun. Robert is the catalyst for change in Edna’s life- before him, Edna is, as previously mentioned, thoroughly enveloped by outward conformance.
Love can be an effective medication. That might be the motivation behind why it is so difficult to detect a harmful relationship. Most leave at the primary indication of mishandle, however others stay, and the outcome is a formula for devastation. The subject of pulverization cherish inside relational connections in Shakespeare's Macbeth and Bronte's Wuthering Heights is displayed through sexism, control, and disloyalty.
In conclusion, MacDonald tends to illustrate these ambiguous and complicated scenes that are misinterpreted if not looked at carefully and in detail. Gender representations in the story help to provide readers with a better understanding of the differences between what is false and what is real, where James’ hints at patriarchy and male superiority capture his true identity, as a sexually dominating figure over women. Frances’ defiance of being a “proper” woman also affects the way other characters interpret her actions and Mercedes’ submission to being a traditional female limits her knowledge and ability to grasp the meaning behind various situations in the story. Thus, Fall On Your Knees highlights the idea that a person should never settle
Morbid, vulgar, and disagreeable are just a few descriptors used by critics to describe Kate Chopin’s The Awakening. Chopin is amongst the first feminist writers of the twentieth century writing two novels and about a hundred short stories, most of which the protagonist is a woman. Although Chopin wrote other short stories that were considered controversial none of them received as much criticism as The Awakening. Set in the late nineteenth century the story follows Edna Portellier who has been awakened to her own desires and even though she has a husband and children she decides to pursue those yearnings.
Often times when a person is forced to outwardly conform while questioning themselves it leads to a struggle between their inner selves and what is expected of them. Outward conformity often oppresses a character’s true feelings of loneliness and being misunderstood. In The Awakening by Kate Chopin, the protagonist, Edna Pontellier, leads a dissatisfactory life. She is stuck in a loveless marriage, and has children, all in an attempt to conform to the social norm of the Victorian woman. However, she inwardly questions whether or not she should try to break free from this life to find her own independence and happiness.
Freedom - "A feeling of exultation overtook her, as if some power of significant import had been given her to control the working of her body and her soul. She grew daring and reckless, overestimating her strength. She wanted to swim far out, where no woman had swum before." "You have been a very, very foolish boy, wasting your time dreaming of impossible things when you speak of Mr. Pontellier setting me free! I am no longer one of Mr. Pontellier's possessions to dispose of or not.
