and needs, my dreams… and I buried them inside you.” ( Fences page 71). When Troy told her he had cheated on her she responded by saying she had to hold on to her feelings and needs for him. “Rose: I’ll take care of your baby for you… from right
You need to be able to read the whole novel in order to understand what happens in it and how the story is being told. The three reasons that lead up to show the type of novel one reads are the pessimistic view, the tragic side of the novel, and the rejection towards society. The novel is filled with more of a pessimistic view throughout the novel. The pessimistic view is where Holden is always assuming the worst of things and does not have a positive look at life. Holden is always negative about his life and being depressed.
In the book isn’t said the exact age of Beryl Stapleton. But she was described as a young lady: “There is this naturalist Stapleton, and there is his sister, who is said to be an attractive young lady.” (Sherlock Holmes, page 21) Her profession is unknown. We think she’s just at home. With her status, it wasn’t usual in this time to practise a profession and to work. Beryl Stapleton is, as her real name Garcia sais, not from England.
“Not the least of the book’s merits is that it manages a major moral judgement without the author’s appearance once on stage.” (Knickerbocker 2). Another element of the nonfiction novel is the writer’s objectiveness. Since works of nonfiction or nearly always at their core objective, an author writing a nonfiction novel is supposed to be objective, or at least, remain unseen throughout the story. Even though Capote was extensively involved with the actual case, he never appears or is mentioned in the
From my own experiences I can relate to the evidence. Since a novel is more enjoyable than a factual text the novel can influence the readers understanding of history. “Happy-ever-after is a fairy-tale notion, not history. I know of no woman who escaped
Without one or the other, the novel would not have the same effect on the reader. The difference between the dialogue and the narrative is clear and important, but it also gives a message for the reader from McCarthy. What McCarthy is trying to tell all the readers with the contrasting dialogue and narration is that neither is a bad way to write. The dialogue which is simple and to the point is also very informative and the narration which is complex and elongated to extreme degrees is elegant and thought-provoking. McCarthy shows the reader that two writing styles that would be seen as bad at first can be made to work perfectly to fit the theme of a novel through The
Likewise, the paradox of the novel is evident in the opening paragraph when the narrator states “All of the true things I am about to tell you are shameless lies”. The enigmatic nature of the novel highlights the futility of society and raises questions on what the true meaning of life is. Furthermore, this futile view of life in the novel is accentuated when Julian Castle says to his son Philip, “Son … someday, this will all be yours” as they stand before a room containing piles of dead bodies. Vonnegut conveys his ideas of life having no intrinsic meaning or value and that is meaningless and absurd by existential and nihilistic perspectives. Kurt Vonnegut embodies nihilism in “What can a thoughtful man hope for mankind on Earth, given the experience of the
Moreover, the novel can be considered as historical metafiction. The novel finds to combine the literary devices of metafiction and historical fiction. It is a self –reflexive novel or something which contradicts with fictional quality of the writing. But another dimension to the same novel arises from re- introduction of historical context and makes an awful distinction between functionality and the historical knowledge. Fowles’s metafiction envisages the wonder and fascination for history or rather past events.
