  • Poe - 1,130 words
    Elements of Fiction in Poe=s Writing Edgar Allan Poe was an artist of literature. He was one of the greatest thriller/story tellers that America has known. He was known as "a seminal figure in the development in science fiction and the detective story. His writing came to have enormous importance for modern French literature" (X, John Richardson).

In the story ALi ...

    American novelist, best-known for his Godfather saga. The novel stayed on The New York Times' best-seller list for sixty-seven weeks. Puzo's book had a deep impact on American society through its film adaptation, and the saying about "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse" has became a clich.

  • Lord Of The Flies Analized - 831 words
    When away from civilization, mans facade of civilized behavior falls away. This thought is express greatly in William Golding, Lord of the Flies. Goldings uses characters and events to prove this belief. He uses the protagonist, Ralph, as the example of how no matter how you try the instinctual savagery of humans will surface. The antagonist, Jack, is the example of the change. His metamorphosis from a civilized, optimistic British boy to a bloodthirsty savage leader is one that Golding tracks conscientiously. Then a proof of the true savagery of human instinct, he illustrates the doings of Jacks tribe. Using William Golding, by Samuel Hynes, and The Novel as a Moral Allegory by P.H. Newby, ...

  • Gatsbys Revelation - 535 words
    When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote the novel The Great Gatsby, he used a unique writing technique. It used a first-person point of view in the form of a narrator, Nick Carraway, who was also involved in the story. This style allowed the author to withhold any information that he did not present to the narrator in the story, causing the reader to learn things the same way the narrator did. The protagonist in The Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby, was revealed to the narrator, Nick, gradually throughout the course of the novel. On the surface, Jay Gatsby appeared to be extremely wealthy and generally happy with his place in life, and this is how he appears to Nick at the beginning of the novel. Gatsby thre ...

  • Heart Of Darkness - 1,980 words
    Conrad's novel, Heart of Darkness, relies on the historical period of imperialism in order to describe its protagonist, Charlie Marlow, and his struggle. Marlow's catharsis in the novel, as he goes to the Congo, rests on how he visualizes the effects of imperialism. This paper will analyze Marlow's "change," as caused by his exposure to the imperialistic nature of the historical period in which he lived. Marlow is asked by "the company", the organization for whom he works, to travel to the Congo river and report back to them about Mr. Kurtz, a top notch officer of theirs. When he sets sail, he doesn't know what to expect. When his journey is completed, this little "trip" Heart of Darkness is ...

    ... the terms 'enemy' and 'criminals' to the natives. In actuality, they are simply "bewildered and helpless victims...and moribund shadows"(Berthoud. 46). Clearly, the injustice done by the simple misnaming of someone is unbelievable. After witnessing all of these names which bare no true meaning, as well as possibly degrade a person's character, Marlow understands that he can not continue in his former ways of mindlessly giving random names to something in fear of diminishing the essence of the recipient. As a result, Marlow finds himself unable to label something for what it is. While under attack, Marlow reefers to the arrows being shot in his direction as "sticks, little sticks", and a ...

  • Airframe - 540 words
    For unknown reasons, the almost flawless N-22 Norton aircraft suffers severe turbulence during TPA flight 545. As a result of three fatalities and fifty-six injuries, a spiral of investigations, terrible apprehensions, and horrible threats plague the Norton Aircraft Plant. From the first page, the seemingly dull plot of Airframe grabs the readers attention. With political trouble in the plant, a deadline for the investigation, and rumors of mutiny, the novel is filled with action along with a precise measurement of suspense. Crichton, one of my favorite authors, plans his novels superbly timing the chapters at the pinnacle of the action. By this method of writing, it was difficult to stop re ...

    Alex Roth Per 3 The main protagonist, or main character in a story, changes his/her characters and beliefs throughout the many different trials that they persevere though. In the book, World's Fair by E.L. Doctorow, the protagonist of the story is a young, typically Jewish boy by the name of Edgar. The book takes place in 1930's post-depression New York and Edgar's family is in somewhat tumultuous times.

  • Phoenix Rises From The Ashes - 530 words
    When asked by a white hunter " Doesn't the gun scare you?" while having it pointed at her, Phoenix Jackson, of Eudora Welty's "A Worn Path", replies "No, sir. I seen plenty go off closer by, in my day, and for less than what I done," This is an example of how the protagonist deals with another of her travails. Phoenix's conflicts only hone the thrust of Welty's tale of triumph over adversity. The irrelevancy of these tortures to this person's purpose is made all the more poignant by their staggering weight. From the first line of the narrative you learn the setting is December. A "frozen day", and yet Phoenix does ought but rejoice that it is not the "season" for bulls and snakes. Given the ...

  • Soldiers Home - 1,310 words
    'SOLDIER'S HOME': ANOTHER STORY OF A BROKEN HEART He knew he could never get through it all again. "I don't want to go through that hell again." In the works of Ernest Hemingway, that which is excluded is often as significant as that which is included; a hint is often as important and thought-provoking as an explicit statement. This is why we read and reread him. "Soldier's Home"is a prime example of this art of echo and indirection. Harold Krebs, the protagonist of "Soldier's Home," is a young veteran portrayed as suffering from an inability to readjust to society--Paul Smith has summarized previous critics on the subject of how Krebs suffers from returning to the familial, social, and reli ...

However, to understand Hemingway and his short stories I find it necessary to take a brief look at his life and background first.

    ... himself with a shotgun. Ernest Hemingway takes much of the storylines of his short stories from his personal experiences. In "Soldier's Home" Hemingway expresses the alienation from bourgeois American culture that many returning soldiers felt. Harold Krebs, who is the main character in the story, feels this alienation when he returns to the U.S. He came back much later than the other soldiers. Everyone heard the same stories from all the soldiers, so Krebs felt the need to lie about the stories to make people listen and so he would feel like he belonged. Krebs is the story's protagonist. He is bored with his town and disgusted by his parent's bland piety. He also felt isolated from his f ...
