I am trying to read more difficult novels, but I think I chose one a little too far outside my comfort zone. The plot is understandable but the language the author uses rather difficult for me to read. To sum it up, these books are all good choices and I would recommend them, but sometimes I just have to deal with what I can
Usually, repressed connotes a negative restraint, yet Coates seems to speak of his transformation positively. I think this must contribute to his sense of falsehood, as he feels though the only way to survive is to hide who he really is. So that’s where Coates is right now, feeling the front of imposter syndrome, and it comes at a strange time in the book. It appears halfway through, and book feels about as aimless, there is no driving force behind the plot. It is as if the both the book and Coates are at their crossroads, and we are about to see what happens when they make the jump.
My ardour for Literature grew when I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Both novels are similar and revolve around self-discovery. As a reader, it makes me feel like outlaw reading novels about knowledge and reading being a crime. In Huxley 's Brave New World, those who accept the new world lose their humanity. Bradbury shows how the lack of books can give the government too much power.
However, the author position is quite ambiguous in this article. In the author style, Carroll combines his writing with several questions to attract reader engagement and critical thinking. However, this article is lack of introduction and conclusion. In consequence, it can confuse the reader about the purpose and main point of the article.
One really frustrating attitude of Chuang Tzu was that life-- everything was pointless. Towards the tail end of the book, the narrator stated, “You mean you’re only now realizing there are no answers?” What that essentially amounted to was that I had completely wasted my time trying to understand what this book and condescending, dead man meant. I did not gain a better perception of it until the other day- when I thought about what I said in class. I may not understand every line in T.S. Elliot’s poem, and even if I didn’t make sense of any of it, the poem was ultimately still pleasurable because I simply like the way it sounds (The only problem with Chuang Tzu was that his prose sucked).
Peter Sisario’s analysis of Fahrenheit 451 can be located on Gale literary databases. The analysis discusses the reasons for controversy the book had generated in North America. The source deconstructs the book specifically focusing on the allusions it contained; some of them from the Bible. The main reason for Fahrenheit 451 being banned is because of some of the allusions being used. Peter Sisario is a recognized critic for novels, being noted for his analysis of Fahrenheit 451 and 1984; ensuring that his view and analysis is academic and reliable.
I found this quote that I think supports what I’m saying: “…but I assure you, as I survey this globe or globule, I think that God has abandoned it to some evil spirit---all of it except Eldorado.” (Chapter 20 pg. 458). When I read Voltaire and I read about all the criticisms. I start to notice how not all of them make sense. The anonymous review that I read was on the nose when it said: “Voltaire seems indeed to have understood the opinion, which he has endeavored to ridicule, and the arguments by which it is supported in a very imperfect and confusing manner?”
The book pulls the reader along with its dark, entrancing imagery and intense, spine-tingling sequence of events. However, Golding’s work is deemed to be manipulative, to a certain extent, due to its overload of forced symbolism and his lack of space for open interpretation. Like many other works of classic literature (such as Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray), Golding’s characters’ main purpose is to simply be symbolically significant, and not to appeal to the readers emotionally, hence why the characters are hard to relate to, despite them being laden with symbolic meaning. The characters barely seem to have any significant human emotions, except those which contribute to the characters’ symbolic meaning. Simply putting it, the characters are not depictions of real human beings, but concrete ideas and solid symbols being personified into young
This makes Nabokov’s postscript a bit ironic since he throughout the novel is using the English canon as reference in which aspect it seems more than his heritage additional to his ability to play around with this content in different languages suggests that he does indeed transcend his heritage as an illusionist of languages. To the extend in which this is done may, however, be an indication of
Author of “Let There Be Dark,” Paul Bogard, provides awareness of a very significant problem in humanity to his readers. Opening his article with a personal story uses pathos reasoning. Immediately he pulls his reader into his article with a personal story and then slowly broadens to logical evidence. His vivid language such as “the famed ‘city of light’” and our “nights growing brighter” keep the reader’s attention. He uses strong logical appeal to explain how such a problem can affect us.
