Conflict is one of the most basic elements of natural human behavior. Conflict, from a literary standpoint, serves its purpose to create tension within a story, which as a result keeps readers interested and engaged. Whether the conflict is with another person, with nature, or within yourself, it is ubiquitous and unavoidable. In Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage, the struggles that Henry faces help to give depth and meaning to the story, as well as develop Henry as a character. Throughout the length of the story, Henry deals with conflicts that relate to nature, other men, and even some in particular that lie within his own person.
By using person vs person, person vs society, person vs self, and person vs nature conflict the author is opening doors allowing readers to get a full understanding of Ishmael 's challenges of a life in war. The most commonly seen conflict in ‘A Long Way Gone’ is person vs society. In this rivalry, the character feels horror and/or large amounts of fear. By showing these emotions and actions in his story, the author is emphasizing how much the society 's indifference affected him. When present with fear,
Also, the account of Lady Juliet d’Orsey provided a perspective that developed the reader’s overall understanding of Robert and the effects of the war away from the battlefield. Comparatively, Marian Turner’s transcripts (at the beginning and end of the novel) play a major role in uncovering the reader’s final judgement of Robert Ross. Altogether, the first, second, and third person narrative styles in the book entail that the truth of Findley’s main character is elusive and meant to be scrutinized. In using multiple voices to tell his story, the author is able to illustrate how war can eclipse, confuse, and complicate already difficult matters. This is clearly seen with the circumstances of Rowena’s death at the beginning of the novel.
Narratology: Slaughterhouse Five and The French Lieutenant’s Woman The role of the narrator is crucial in Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five and John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman as they help to convey the thematic concerns of writing and reality versus fiction, present in both texts. As the narratologist, Gérard Genette, discusses in Narrative Discourse, there are several ways of identifying the means in which the role of the narrator contributes to the aforementioned thematic concerns using Genette’s approach towards narratology (Guillemette). Both narrators assume the role of the implied author and are highly concerned with the process of writing. As such, they possess a sense of self-reflexivity towards the complex process of
Here is another unifying factor in the novel, for Tolstoy presents not only the involvement of the historical characters in the great events of history but that of the fictional characters as well. They all face situations which exemplify the tension between the immediacy of the individual 's sense of freedom as individual and the feelings of powerlessness and constraint within the group. (Ibid: 1985, 479) The intuitive freedom perceived by consciousness does battle with the indubitable necessity proven by reason, and from this war not one of the leading characters is allowed, in fife, an unbroken peace. The same questions cloaked in a different setting and explored in the context of another dimension of the "group," emerge again in Tolstoy 's second great
Anger is an emotional, strong, and intense reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others; and it is characterized by extreme hostility, indignation, rage, disturbance, violence and the expression of frustration. Anger in literature is a form of interaction that reveals important awareness of the obstacles that oppressed people face (Kim 16). Anger in literature can be defined as an effective source of energy serving improvement and progression. Anger splits into two types: a corrosive anger that attempts damage and destruction, and a resourceful anger that struggles to fulfill social justice. According to the connection between anger and justice, anger is defined as a tool of revenge that is triggered by painful desire
The theme of the enclosed space is one that is central in Poe’s stories as it is continually significant throughout his work. The enclosed space is something to be feared in Poe’s stories, as generally it is viewed with negative connotations. It appears for example, in the form of a coffin in “The Premature Burial,” a tomb in “The Cask of Amontillado,” and a mansion in “The Fall of The House of Usher,” to name just some of the many instances it is presented. The idea of the enclosed space can also be seen between the proximity of characters. The entrapment of the narrator with his doppelganger in “William Wilson” could also be viewed as an enclosed space, the intense intimacy driving the narrator to insanity.

1. Introduction The purpose of this section of the essay is to present the theoretical framework that will be employed and unpacked in completing my field of study, which seeks to investigate bias in media representations of conflict. The ways in which the media construct the news regarding conflict and peace are important. This is the case because society often depends on the media as a major source of information about conflicts. The main focus of this section seeks to unpack the journalistic techniques used by the media when representing conflict.
The theme that we’ve studied is Conflict. Conflict can be a struggle, whether it is physical or mental. Conflict can be a disagreement between two or more sides.It can be much more complex such as a group against group conflict, for example, “Racism”, or even an Internal Conflict, a conflict within yourself. Conflict is a thing that very much happens in our life. That’s what makes books and novels with conflict interesting.
