- Lord Of The Flies Character Study - 945 words
Lord Of The Flies - Character Study The main theme William Golding focuses on in The Lord of the Flies is his opinion that, when taken away from a civilised society, people will revert back to being primitive, animal like creatures. He portrays this view throughout the book by using very different characters almost all of whom eventually forget their civilised ways. The book tells the story of a group of school boys who, after their plane crashes, are stranded on a tropical island without any adults. At first they seem enthusiastic about the situation and quickly elect one of the boys, Ralph, as a leader, but pretty soon things start to deteriorate. Another one of the boys, Jack, leaves the ...

- Catcher In The Rye Character Analysis Of Holden - 2,065 words
... tors, both commenting on the problems of their times, and both novels have been recurrently banned or restricted (Davis 318). John Aldrige remarked that both novels are "study in the spiritual picaresque, the joinery that for the young is all one way, from holy innocence to such knowledge as the world offers, from the reality which illusion demands and thinks it sees to the illusion which reality insists, at the point of madness, we settle for" (129). Harvey Breit of The Atlantic Bookshelf wrote of Holden Caulfield: "(He) struck me as an urban, a transplanted Huck Finn. He has a colloquialism as marked as Huck's . . . Like Huck, Holden is neither comical or misanthrope. He is an observer ...

- Hedda Gabler By Ibsen - 1,012 words
Hedda Gabler By Ibsen Henrik Ibsens Hedda Gabler is not truly indicative of his vast body of work: the protagonist is female and the play is a character study. Oddly enough, though, Hedda does not evolve or progress throughout the entirety of the work. Rather, she remains a cold and manipulative woman. When this fact is realized, the only task is discovering why Hedda continues as a flat character who is restrained from gaining the status of a hero. Truthfully, there are many variables that shape Heddas life. Nonetheless, two factors in particular stand outher father, General Gabler, and the repressive, masculine society of the era. Although Ibsen does not directly address these issues, he s ...

- Regret: A Hopeless Quality - 831 words
Regret: A Hopeless Quality Tenets of Tenneyson in Tithonus "Tithonus" was written by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The poems setting is the ancient story of Tithonus. Tithonus fell in love with Eos, goddess of the dawn, and asked her for immortality. Unfortunately for Tithonus he did not ask for eternal youth, only eternal life. He, therefore, grows old but never dies while Eos not only never dies but also never grows old. What makes Tithonuss situation worse is that "the gods themselves cannot recall their gifts" (49). This dramatic monologue is characteristic of Tennyson. Tithonus is an excellent example of a dramatic monologue. There is a speaker, Tithonus, who is not the poet. There is an audie ...

- Wife Of Bath Characters - 1,848 words
Wife Of Bath Characters Upon a first reading of the Wife of Baths Prologue, its hard not to feel the need to pat her on the shoulder and say Go-girl! Theres no denying the impact that Feminism has had on our Millennium-revved society, and the Wife of Baths character would certainly have contradicted the oppressive customs of Chaucers time. But on closer inspection, it would seem that the Prologue could be considered a medium for an anti-feminist message, under the semblance of a seemingly feminist exterior. She confesses her treatment of her husbands and her tendency to swere and lyen, and this self-incrimination invokes a feeling that the Wife is an extraordinarily attractive character by ...
