Comment of Novel

...The novel ‘Dream of Red Mansions’ was written by Xueqing Cao, which is one of the four most Famous Classical Chinese Novels. The author of this book, who has a preliminary democratic ideology, demonstrates profound criticism through this book, including the darkness of bureaucracy, the corruption of the feudal aristocracy, even strict social hierarchy system of the real society in that period of time.

In the following, I will evaluate this fiction from the author, brilliant achievements, genre and classical characters of this book, especially demonstrate some difference from other books.

...[Author’s Name] [Instructor’s Name] [Course Title] Date Georges Bataille George Bataille is a French librarian and writer whose essays, novels, and poetry expressed his fascination with eroticism, mysticism, and the irrational. He viewed excess as a way to gain personal sovereignty. After training as an archivist at the school of paleography known as the Ecole des Chartes (School of Charters) in Paris, he worked as a librarian and medieval specialist at the Bibliotheque National in Paris until 1942. In 1951 he became keeper of the Orleans library. He also edited scholarly journals and in 1946 founded an influential literary review, Critique, which he edited until his death. George Bataille’s “Theory of Religion” is an attempt to sum up religion in as succinct a manner as possible. To be all things to all religions, the book is very vague and difficult to understand. Bataille created a chart or table to explain what he was doing and to give body to the work. ALAS! The chart is not in the book, lost to time. Thus, as it exists, Bataille’s book is a glimpse into the inner workings of a genius mind. It is a colorful attempt to understand “religion,” whatever that is. Further, it is an off-the beaten path romp through the daisies of the study of religion, sweet flowers that often remain unromped. Theory of Religion brings to philosophy what Bataille’s earlier book, The Accursed Share, brought to anthropology and history; namely, an analysis based on notions......

Novel

...A novel is a long narrative, normally in prose, which describes fictional characters and events, usually in the form of a sequential story. While Ian Watt in The Rise of the Novel (1957) suggests that the novel came into being in the early 18th century, the genre has also been described as "a continuous and comprehensive history of about two thousand years",[1] with historical roots in Classical Greece and Rome, medieval, early modern romance, and in the tradition of the novella. The latter, an Italian word used to describe short stories, supplied the present generic English term in the 18th century. Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote, is frequently cited as the first significant European novelist of the modern era; the first part of Don Quixote was published in 1605.[2] While a more precise definition of the genre is difficult, the main elements that critics discuss are: how the narrative, and especially the plot, is constructed, the themes, settings, and characterization, how language is used, and the way that plot, character, and setting relate to reality. The romance is a related long prose narrative. Walter Scott defined it as "a fictitious narrative in prose or verse; the interest of which turns upon marvellous and uncommon incidents", whereas in the novel "the events are accommodated to the ordinary train of human events and the modern state of society".[3] However, many romances, including the historical romances of Scott,[4] Emily Brontë's Wuthering......

‘How Has Studying the Concept of Belonging Expanded Your Understanding of Yourself, and of Your World?’

...‘How has studying the concept of Belonging expanded your understanding of yourself, and of your world?’ In the world today, there is a certain restless nature and desire that lives deep within the human heart. Eternal and overwhelming, this inner struggle is one that fuels our innate need to identify with a group. For any individual, a perception of acceptance and understanding is a fundamental element of the human sense of self. Throughout this journey of finding acceptance, our personal identity becomes intertwined, and a newly found sense of belonging is created. By developing relations and connections with people, places, groups and communities, we create a “source of love and belonging that makes living in a chaotic world easier.” Global societies in the modern world are filled with various beliefs regarding personal identity as well as belonging. It is these beliefs that influence the way we observe, interpret and behave throughout our daily lives. Because of this, and the various other cultures that form our communities, perceptions regarding acceptance and understanding of numerous individuals may clash. As a result of this, feelings of belonging, or not, are developed. Through exploration of this notion and related texts, we able to comprehend acceptance in both contemporary and past generations, and how it has developed throughout history.

Rejection in Novels

...disappointment for most of his life, but he functions under the attitude that the problem lies within the ‘phony’ society and their expectations of him. Rejection is an occurrence in both novels, however, the difference being Huck was brought up with no education, no understanding of social standards and no rules imposed on him. Now he has been forced into a civilized life which he dreads. On the other hand, Holden has been educated and disciplined from a young age and he appears to be well behaved. However, later on in the novel we discover he pretends to be someone he not and very often breaks social norms. Both writers present the theme of rejection by aiming to portray a young man’s ‘journey’ through growing up. Both protagonists reject the expectations placed on them by society; however they do not share similar experiences and social backgrounds. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, set in roughly 1835, the slave era of 19th Century America, author Twain uses the character of Huck to indulge in the feelings of slavery he has himself. By mocking and rejecting the ideas of society, the main premise in Huckleberry Finn is for Huck to do the thing he believes is right (releasing and helping the slave) even though society is very much against it. Contrastingly, Salinger’s 20th century novel was published at a time when the expanding American industrial economy made the ‘nation prosperous and entrenched social rules served as a code of conformity for the younger generation.’......

...Dinner with Dr. Azad What is a multicultural society? There is many different definitions of this word. Every people have his or her own definition depending on who or where he or she are from. Almost every definition is about a society with many different cultures. This society is pretty much the definition of a modern society. This society is full of people from all around the world and they have all brought a culture with them to the new country they are entering. Many of the new people have a dream of a society where they can live side by side with all the other citizens.

Calvino's Novel

...its novelty in technique, versatile ideas, and its break from the traditional narrative writing. Basically “If on a winter's night a traveler” is a novel about the reading experience. When discussing the postmodern literature, Calvino’s novel of 1979 “If on a winter's night a traveler” definitely is a work that is worth to be examined within this context. While ascribing the features of the postmodern fiction to a specified work at times can prove to be an undertaking that is both controversial and challenging in nature. This novel has proven to be both fascinating and also to be innovative work of the fiction which is postmodern. “If on a winter's night a traveler” authored by Italo Calvino, is a postmodern novel since it deviates from the obvious objectivity provided by the omniscient external narration normally found in nearly all traditional books(Calvino & William, pp.13-18). All through chapter two, Calvino employs second person viewpoint, where he narrates of the readers of the novel, are the key characters in his plot. The author constantly employs the pronoun “you” in making the reader to feel more engaged in what is happening and points out directly the relationship between the author, the text, and the readers. Self-reflectivity also is found in nearly all postmodern novels are well-known to possess. Calvino’s novel portrays numerous remarkable literary devices that use “key characteristics’’ postmodern fiction as illustrated in the parameters summarized by Tim...

...NOVELS What is strange is that this prejudice against novel reading has persisted, to some extent, even in the modern world including India which has borrowed the novel form from the West. Students, particularly, are not encouraged to read novels. Parents and teachers seem to think that youngsters read fiction mainly to kill time, are likely to get addicted to it as to a drug, and derive from it a pleasure which makes them reluctant to apply themselves to serious study. It must be admitted that this prejudice is justified, as far as bad novels are concerned. Today the railway book stalls and circulating libraries are flooded with detective novels, crime fiction and thrillers. The appeal of the majority of such novels is based on plot, usually absurd and improbable, and the excitement of the lower human instincts. They are totally devoid of characterization, insight into human nature, and significance. Reading such novels is not only a waste of time but exposing oneself to dangerous influences. Of course, there are some good detective novels such as those by Canon Doyle and there can be no objection to reading some of them, but it should be realised that the value of even good detective novels is that of entertainment, and that they do not contribute to understanding of life. But what objection can there be to reading good novels? The novel today is an important form of literature, and several distinguished writers like Tolstoy, Wells, E. M. Forster, William Golding and......

They are: 1) The opening of the story and an introduction of many of the major characters, including Luke, the narrator, his grandfather, and the "hill people" and Mexicans who will be picking cotton on their farm for the next two months. This also introduces a sub-plot line that will be important to the novel – Luke and his family's love of baseball. 2) Pappy's money woes and the hope the cotton will provide enough money to pay the workers and at least break even in costs. 3) The first conflict with the hill people, who camp in the front yard instead of the back, which sets the stage for further conflicts to come. 4) The introduction of Luke's father, Jesse Chandler, and his dream to own forty acres of land. 5) Introduces the Korean War, and Ricky, Jesse's brother who is fighting in Korea. This indicates the importance of the war to the family, and how close to home it is every night through the nightly news radio broadcasts of Edward R. Murrow. The radio broadcasts of news and their "beloved" Cardinal baseball team are their tenuous hold on the outside world, otherwise their world is insulated and far removed from the widespread prosperity sweeping America. 6) The picking in the cotton fields, the division between the Mexicans and the others, and the backbreaking labor of picking. 7) Introduces the budding relationship between Tally and Cowboy. 8) The hatred of the Spruills for the Chandlers, and the growing......

...TEXTUAL ANALYSIS 1. The passage is taken from Volume II, chapter xx of the novel Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte. The bildungsroman begins to focus on the turning point in Jane’s maturity. She will have to make moral decisions and the passage relates her inner forebodings. The novel cannot be truly characterized as gothic however; this chapter appears to have a very gothic tone. This can be seen in the ghostly vision and weather which exhibit supernatural tones, the damaged chestnut tree, and Jane’s restlessness for no apparent reason which she describes as “hypochondriac”. Other gothic elements include Jane’s sense of terror at seeing a vision, wearing and ultimately ruining her wedding veil, the weather, and the symbolic imagery of the Chestnut tree. The passage also represents a significant issue in regards to the morale personae of Mr. Rochester. His untruth at leading Jane to the door of marriage knowing he had an insane wife, whom he could not divorce. One may suppose he should not have offered marriage to Jane. Jane would have to make a moral decision in spite of her deep love for Mr. Rochester and make choices which will affect her life from this time forward on societal and inner morality. TEXTUAL ANALYSIS 2. The passage is taken from the novel Mill on the Floss, by George Eliot, page 68. The passage refers to the narrator speaking of Mr. Riley a “gentleman” who was a very educated auctioneer and appraiser. The passage can be analyzed on different......
