    A Call to Arms - Style and Tone A Call to Arms - Style and Tone "After a while I went out and left the hospital and walked back to the hotel in the rain" (332). This last line of the novel gives an understanding of Ernest Hemingway's style and tone. The overall tone of the book is much different than that of The Sun Also Rises.

    Clarissa Dalloway Virginia Woolf creates interesting contrast within the character of Clarissa Dalloway using stream of consciousness narration in her novel Mrs. Dalloway.

  • How My Cousin Manuel Brought Home A Wife - 838 words
    How My Cousin Manuel Brought Home A Wife HOW MY COUSIN MANUEL BROUGHT HOME A WIFE Manuel Arguilla and Charlson Ong's stories may have an almost similar title, with each of the main characters bringing home a wife who is different from the local people. However, the newer version addresses a much more serious issue. In Charlson Ong's "How My Cousin Manuel Brought Home A Wife", the writer used contrast of characters (particularly Consuelo and Mei Lu) and contemporary language to show that even in the modern age, racial discrimination still exists and destroys one's happiness. Hearing about his son's return with a Brazilian wife, Mei Lu is devastated. Her agony clearly worsens to the extreme up ...

  • Margaret Atwood - 1,415 words
    ... ome another one of the social problems that they face by getting a conversation going with someone who is intending on raping you. Atwood appears to be making a comment on the strength of women and how she thinks that a society could be changed just by talking. The subject matter of "Rape Fantasies" is parallel with that of her other works. The most important factor is the relationships between male and female. The female relationships in "Fantasies" are very close. Atwood makes the women seem like they have a tight enough bond to be talking about rape together, yet they do not know each other well enough that they will not talk behind the others back. The flow of conversation that Atwoo ...

    ... in Kerouacs spontaneous prose method as a variation on the stream of consciousness technique favored by the modernists (Jack Kerouac. Contemporary Literary Criticism, Vol. 61, 278). With this style, however; comes a lack of the basic components of literature. The plot directly suffered as a result of giving little thought to the writing as he went. Kerouac has written an enormously readable and entertaining book, but one reads it in the same mood that he might visit a slide show (Jack Kerouac. Contemporary Literary Criticism, Vol. 61, 278). The book is still fun to read with some natural plot derived from his prose. Champney states, There is built in conflict in Kerouac's writing as he ...

    William James An admitted Moral Psychologist, Jamess philosophies coincide with todays fields of Humanistic Psychology, Behavioral Psychology, and Transpersonal Psychology. He, like Jung, dared to look outside the normal experiences of the mind and expand the concepts of consciousness.

He was the first to introduce our nation to psychology as a standard educational course and the founder of pragmatism which emphasizes the elimination of unnecessary thinking and finding truth only if it is practically applicable. Practicality, James defines, as those ideas that ca ...
