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.
'If' by Rudyard Kipling Rudyard Kipling’s poem ‘If’’ centres on the theme of stoicism. Stoicism is the ability to keep a steady disposition in all life’s situations whether good or bad. In the first verse, the point that put across is the importance of rebuffing negative opinions from others and keeping one’s individualism and sense of worth in the face of criticism. The word “you” seems to be deliberately used so as to dismantle the barrier between the poet and the reader, inviting the reader to engage. It challenges the reader to have a saint-like sense of forgiveness.
We know that life in reality gives no obvious moral lessons to the observer. So, how a realistic portrayal of life could be didactic and moralistic, in the strict sense of the term and serve as an honest, frank and realistic portrayal of life, simultaneously. The question also arises that how a writer can become a moralist on one hand and depicts an honest representation of life on the other hand. Does it mean that a writer must instruct and teach at the cost of realism? Does the Critic want Shakespeare to be an instructor of life instead of giving a true representation of life in his works?

Furedi constructed his argument in a manner in which he scrutinized the opposing argument in order to provide evidence for his inevitable conclusion on the subject.

Art evokes feelings and these feelings are subjective. They are attributed from our personal taste and knowledge of artistic value.

Evoking a sense of feeling that is sparked off by sincerity of the work of art that communicates with the perceiver. What I thought was important in Tolstoy’s story of “Art” was the invocation of human feelings.
It is certainly true to say that a structuralist perspective reveals layers of meaning in the text and allows us as readers to interpret the poem in different ways. Although structuralism is only one school of literary criticism, it still means that there are still multiple ways the reader can approach this poem. The removal of Wordsworth (as the poet) from the poem is central to the idea of structuralism and gives the reader a first person perspective. Reading the poem in this way allows us to form personal thoughts on the language used in the poem and the way it affects us individually without being swayed by external influences. The comparison of the poem to another text allows for the identification of an individual poetic style, conveying the possibility that poem is written to appeal to a mass audience rather than, in this case, for a particularly personal reason.
