Paper 2 :Hedda Gabler and The Handmaid 's Tale How can we explain the continued interest in a particular work in different contexts and at different times? Symbolism is a literary devices, that enables the author to imbue everyday objects with alternative meaning, often related to universal concepts. The authors of Hedda Gabler, and The Handmaid’s Tale explore a multitude of universal themes in their works, ensuing their relevance through time and culture. The play “Hedda Gabler”, was written in the late 19th century, by a famous Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Margaret Atwood, a Canadian author, spent over thirty years writing the novel, which was published in 1985.
Throughout the novel, Go Tell it on the Mountain written by James Baldwin, there is a shift between time periods. The way that James Baldwin wrote this novel, kept readers attentions and also provided readers with background information in regards to each of the characters’ lives and the events that were being taken place. James Baldwin’s writing technique switches time periods from the past to present time. At first, I found this writing technique to be confusing because often times I would find myself thinking that things that happened in the past of the character’s lives were really happening in present time. For example, on page 11, the narrative breaks from past time to present time when Baldwin goes from describing how Ella Mae and Elisha were no longer seeing each other after school to talking about Johns birthday.
Philosophers also argued that the importance of Candide lays in its philosophical message which is ‘Optimism’. Voltaire who wrote this novel was not believed of the philosophy of Optimism and strongly attacked the supporters
Unlike other trifle characters in the story, What if the protagonist, Guy Montag, never met Clarisse, Beatty, and Faber Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451? Clarisse, Beatty, and Faber are the main reasons why the novel has depth. These characters are essential to the story because they make the story more interesting and suspenseful. Each character has a particular purpose in why they have written and how they each impact the main character. At first all the characters were not close and they where impersonal with each other as the book goes on they started to get personal with each other and started to have an impact with montag.
Similarly in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four Oceania represents and extended metaphor as well. In both novels the characters struggle to regain their freedom from the authoritarian governments. The Maze is a representation of life and all its challenges. It is mentioned in the novel
The point of this inquiry is not to consider whether the readers of “Mending Wall” prefer one of the two neighbors more than the other. The point is to inquire whether Robert Frost does—and what his preference says about him. The speaker in a poem often reveals more about himself than he does about the person of whom or to whom he is speaking. The reader of “Mending Wall” discovers more about the narrator than about the neighbor he is talking about, and by extension, the reader learns something about the author of the poem.
You need to now. Well, can you speak?" (Miller, 1959, 300) " You need to now" is deliberately written incorrectly by the author, as phonetically 'know' and 'now' sounds similar to each other.
Along with this century, another important subjects can be seen for many writers like Hawthorne’s novel The House of the Seven Gables (1851) which centred on the importance of determining the identity of families by inherited property or subject that show the idea of the relationship between property and women’s body in the novel The Squatter and the Don (1881) by Maria Amparo Ruiz de Burton and to reflect the social manners as it in the novel The Portrait of a Lady (1881) by Henry James. There is a significant remark of the nineteenth century that some novelists turned to emphasize the religion aspect of life as it described by Shirley Samuels as following: “some of the most popular novels of the United States focused on religion”
The story is not easy to read and even harder to understand due to the many time jumps, one must take time and not rush the reading, in order to not miss important details. The narrative perspective is also unfamiliar: Faulkner uses an anonymous first-person narrator, who never appears in the first person singular, but is present as a “we” in a sense, I suppose one could therefore even speak of a we-perspective. Faulkner does not tell the story in a traditional order, this can be seen right from the start, from the fact that he begins, so to speak, with the end of the story: the death of Emily. Starting from the end, the narrator keeps making different flashbacks and leaps in time. It almost seems as if he time jumps, every time he remembers a new (old) detail/part of the story.
The people in Woolf’s book seem to be looking through each other with some far question; and, although they interact vividly, they are not completely real to know people in outline are one way of knowing them. Moreover, they are seen here in the way they are meant to be seen. However, the result is that you know quite well the kind of
There are numerous amounts of techniques authors use in their novels to project a message, and interest the reader. However, certain styles may not work due to the fact that it possibly can result in an overdoing of such style, causing the reader to get bored and stop reading. The novel “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley Is a novel about developments in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical conditioning that come together to change society. This book has a unique science-fiction theme and takes place in the future. Another book called “Alias Grace” by Margaret Atwood is a fictional book based on a true story about a girl named Grace who gets wrongfully convicted of a double murder.
If the writer cannot capture the reader 's attention through the creative backdrop, settings, then the foundation is not buildable and my story may be weak and uninteresting. A crafty writer connects emotionally to the reader through description, describing time, location, weather in such great detail the reader should live in the moment. The reader becomes emotionally attached to the story’s detail of events. Subsequently, without the setting edged in an emotional backdrop the story is just a bunch of information.
When I write I like to make sure what I am writing makes senses, so that I don 't have to go back and fix a lot of things; especially if I am writing a long page paper. The only thing that I was able to agree on with her was that fact that not everyone write a perfect first paragraph.
Modernism is a literary and artistic movement of the 20th century that can be defined as a set of values produced between World War I and II. Some examples of Modernist Literature are the essays Modern Fiction by Virginia Woolf and From Romanticism and Classicism by T.E. Hulme. These essays characterize Modernism by it’s rejection of materialism and the sensible view of hopes and dreams that it holds. And though not all pieces created in this time were an example of modernist literature, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque is. This is due to its strong stance that man has limits, unlike the past literary movement, Romanticism, which viewed man as a somewhat perfect creature possible of anything, and the fact that it strayed from materialism, and focused more on internal conflict.
