Heroes and Heroism in Anita Desai's Clear Light of Day - Heroes and Heroism in Anita Desai's Clear Light of Day       When one asks a child, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" a usual response is "a fireman" or "a ballerina."  In Anita Desai's Clear Light of Day, however, the young Bim and Raja are somewhat more ambitious; they answer that they want to be a hero and heroine.  Later, Bim asks somewhat bitterly, "The hero and heroine-where are they?  Down at the bottom of the well-gone, disappeared" (157).  Bim has lost track of her heroes; however, Raja and Tara have not.  The three siblings have very different relationships to heroic ideals....   [tags: Clear Light Day Essays Desai ]

Creation of Feminine Space in Clear Light of Day - Language constitutes a necessary factor in the analysis of a female voice. Femininity in writing can be discerned in a privileging of the voice: writing and voice are in fact woven together. The speaking woman is entirely her voice for she physically materializes what she is thinking: she signifies it with her body. Woman, in other words, is wholly and physically present in her voice and writing is no more than the extension of this self- identical prolongation of the speech act. What we find is that by adopting a feminine mode of writing Anita Desai is trying to create a feminine textual space, for the woman occupies a space in this world and this allows the existence of a female utterance...   [tags: Anita Desai] 289 words

One method he used is to apply robust design, which the authors believe as a useful tool of helping Edison’s innovation to acquire social acceptance and break lock-in of gas lighting institutes. The notion of robust design requires the innovators and entrepreneurs to make sophisticated decisions including what to present as new (novelty), what to present as old (similarity), and what to hide (Hargadon and Douglas 2001, 476--501)....   [tags: light, similarities] 1957 words

Are there really fewer stars in the heavens. Not at all. The stars are up there, they just cannot be seen by the naked eye from the vast majority of heavily populated vantage points anymore....   [tags: Light Pollution ]

The mood shifts quite fast and dramatically at times, but this album is still coherent as a whole. “Overture”, “Zero”, and “Extraneous” are the instrumentals, and they are all phenomenal, giving off a progressive/djent feel that fans of this genre love, while still able to show off their technicality....   [tags: metal, tracks, lyrics]
