The very integrity of a person’s reality is subject to being questioned as their mind begins to intertwine the realm of reality and illusion. The fabric of James Gatz’s reality ripped long before Nick Carraway met him. It might have even ripped long before F. Scott Fitzgerald externalized him into his novel, The Great Gatsby. There is no certainty in even believing that James Gatz was ever able to separate these two realms, therefore, there is no certainty that Gatz ever had a concrete reality to live in. Fitzgerald plays with this uncertain factor throughout the novel, as he inserts facts and descriptions of Gatsby’s “life”, with which he proliferates uncertainty and makes the reader subject to the same ideal he is using in his literary work.
Almost all of the plot is made by the assumptions made by the Bates during his observations. He does gain more influence on the surrounding during the course of the story, but for a long time he is passive. Additionally, there are gaps between the events – it is often unclear what happens to the narrator when he is not working. Moreover, some information are mentioned only for a moment, and forgotten later - Lewis moves from one concept to another. The story seems to be constructed from fragments that seemed important to Bates – the snapshots of the moments he wanted to remember.
Sometimes we need to forget, to bid farewell to a failure and start a fresh project. However, the stronger the impression the heaviest the memory sinks in our mind, and this is what happens to Written in the body’s protagonist. This main character has no assigned name and gender in the pages of the book, and this ambiguity is ever present in its pages in an almost playful way, as if the author challenged the reader to make assumptions about it only
According to Miyazaki, and in direct connection with his environmentalism, nature, almost always finds the way to restore balance with mankind Once more, though, Miyazaki is disillusioned about reality and his optimism is kind of "tempered", since, in the majority of his films a lot of awful things also happen, before the redemption offered by the ending. 6. Scripts that look like fairytales but are actually quite complex Despite the fact that, “I don 't have the story finished and ready when we start work on a film. I usually don 't have the time.

A Self-reflection An Extraordinary Journey Introduction The following is a flow of findings on how I have approached the project and what I have learnt from doing it. The final project of a Master Degree course it is in its nature a very demanding process, therefore, a consolidate and organised style seems to be the only way that can help you to reach the final goal. In the last few months of the course I have learned more about myself than in the last few years. The several stages of this project gave me a greater understanding and different insights of what analytical thinking and critical approach are. Genuinely speaking I did not have much familiarity with the academic theories chosen but their application in the practical environment of
As a novel, the reader response it evokes is intense as it is diverse. Since the early decades of the twentieth century, from when on Wuthering Heights has been a fixture in the literary canon, it has also lent itself to ‘an unusually rich and varied array of adaptations in other media (Newman, 9).’ The novel remains a favourite for screenplay adaptations, as the constant number of screen adaptations over the decades signify. It should however be kept in mind that the fifteen or so screen adaptations, when contrasted against the twenty-seven that Jane Eyre has spawned, is testimony to the fiendish difficulty of adapting this novel to screen. Part of this fascination, despite the challenges, seems to stem from the almost inexplicable power and allure of the novel, which poses a remarkable challenge for any scriptwriter(s) to adapt and for any director to visualize, not to mention the challenge posed to the actors involved in order to portray the multifaceted nature of the main protagonists. Perhaps more than any other nineteenth-century English novel, Wuthering Heights has ‘broken free of its origins and invited new versions of itself in divergent cultural contexts (Newman, 9).’ Kate Bush’s 1978 single Wuthering Heights is perhaps the best example of such an ‘adaptation’, wherein she sings the voice of Catherine’s ghost at the window, begging to be let in.
To think about Enyuka and all the lessons I learned so briefly after it has happened does not feel right. I feel incapable of describing such an experience which I know I have learned and gained from, but much like a photograph, you have to wait a while before you can see the full picture . In my case I believe that with time Enyuka will mean so much more to me as I take time to reminisce and realize how each day on and off the mountain spent with my peers changed me , even in the smallest of ways. I can ,however, still identify what I've learned now and the perspective it has provided me with. Leading up to Enyuka I honestly didn't expect much and found myself trivializing it ... often.

Indian English Literature is an endeavour of showcasing the rare gems of Indian Writing in English.
