Opening Chapter Hot Air
1,376 wordsA dictionary defines the word addictive as being: wholly devoted to something, a slave to another and in a state of wanting more. Ian McEwan claimed that he wanted to write an opening chapter that had the same effect as a highly addictive drug. In my opinion he has achieved in doing this. At the end of chapter one the reader is left needing more information about the characters introduced and what tragedy actually occurred. McEwan took the definition, addictive, and wrote the opening chapter, ne...

Chapter Twenty Twenty Four
1,499 wordsMcEwan began Enduring Love by telling us The beginning is simple to mark. It seems that although it is simple to mark the beginning of a novel, finding the end is much harder. This is because McEwan believes there is no such thing as an ending. A conventional book, or play, would have three parts, a beginning, a middle and an end, but Enduring Love Is not a conventional book and McEwan is not a conventional writer. McEwan wants us to believe in a future for his characters after the story is over...

Hillary Rodham Bill Clinton
1,603 wordsHillary's Choice, written by Gail Sheehy, has to be one of the most intriguing books I have recently read. Most literary works have the tendency to start off slow, wind up to a climax and finally produce a strong finish. It is not the case you find when you read Hillary's Choice. From the very beginning you are introduced to the scandals that the Clintons have had to endure throughout their lives. That is why the first chapter is labeled as, Into the Flames. You are being taken straight into the...

Slipping virtually unnoticed into a world where the culture industry churned out products that, as Adorno would later observe, looked more like advertisements for books than actual books (Adorno, 1992, p. 20), the strange volume that Horkheimer and Adorno passed on to their colleagues was one of those books that could no longer be one. Its title confessed what its unusual form of dissemination implied: here was a collection of fragments, incomplete and perhaps even contradictor...

Eyes Were Watching God Major Themes
625 wordsTheir Eyes Were Watching God, written by Zora Neale Hurston, is a novel of self-realization about a woman on a quest for her own identity. Other black writers of the Harlem Renaissance were angry that Their Eyes Were Watching God was not a novel of bitter social realism, but one of joy and celebration. In her novel, Hurston dares to portray the black woman as a hero. The first chapter of Their Eyes Were Watching God introduces some of the novel s major themes. Judgment and dreams are two of the ...

Vietnam War Modern Fiction
991 wordsIt is generally recognized that Tim O? Brien? s Going After Cacciato (1978) is most likely the best novel of the Vietnam war, albeit an unusual one in that it innovative combines the experiential realism of war with surrealism, primarily through the overactive imagination of the protagonist, Spec Four Paul Berlin. The first chapter of this novel is of more than usual importance. Designed to be a self-sufficient story (Mccaffery 137) and often anthologized as one, this chapter is crucial to the n...
