In this light, we will first consider the importance of laughter in the novel and secondly we will look more closely at intertextuality as an important feature of the structure of the novel. Since the very beginning of the novel, when the first murder occurred, William of Baskerville mentioned the term “palimpsests”: Snow, dear Adso, is an admirable parchment on which men 's bodies leave very legible writing. But this palimpsest is badly scraped, and perhaps we will read nothing interesting on it (Eco1980, p.114). Furthermore, the title itself speaks much about the multiplicity of possible interpretations of the novel. The title could have been “The name of the Father” since it speaks of Christianity but “The name of the Rose” opens up to multiple of interpretations.

In order to understand Nabokov’s use of names, one must understand first that the novel is written by protagonist, Humbert Humber, as confessional for a murder he has committed. Therefore, false names are used to protect the identity of the individuals involved, all those except title character, Lolita. One must also understand the power dynamic between himself and his adolescent stepdaughter, Dolores, or Lolita as he calls her.

In Titus Andronicus, Titus sacrifices a child’s life for his own dead sons. This shows that in both plays a psychotic character chooses death and hatred over any other sensible act.

She goes through with the act of killing Jason's new bride - Medea's children bring her a poisoned gown, which also ends up killing the King of Corinth.

This overall allows me to freely explain, in detail, the events and judgments of the upper class including Tom and Daisy. It also allows me to shed light on the major themes that Fitzgerald suggests, such as separation of social classes and the American dream, while maintaining the formality of the style of writing of a letter. I chose to base the letter on the accident as the actions that Tom and Daisy portray clearly give an insight of their carelessness and inconsiderate manner, which directly links to the themes presented throughout the novel. The letter is directed towards the editor of a newspaper in New York as they will be able to write the article that reviles the truth about the events of the accident. I used the newspaper New York Times to send the letter due to its popularity, therefore the message that Nick is expressing will reach the majority of population of New York.
