Realism in A Doll's House - For Ibsen, the theatre was a place of truth, of brutal analysis; an institution where the minds and souls of man were exposed with an honesty that at times seemed intolerably cruel. "Ej blot til Lyst" - "Not Only for Amusement" - Ibsen did not accept compromise nor should one expect compromise from Ibsen. "Ibsen's plays do not depend for their interest on the action, or on the incidents. Even the characters, faultlessly drawn though they be, are not the first thing in this plays. But the `naked drama' - either the perception of a great truth, or the opening up of a great question, or of a great conflict which is almost independent of the conflicting actors, and has been and is of -far reachi...   [tags: European Literature] 1268 words

Connecting Magical Realism and Psychology - Connecting Magical Realism and Psychology At first, German art critic Franz Roh used the term "Magical Realism" to describe a style of painting (Roh 15). Eventually, Arturo Uslar Pietri adapted the term in order to describe a type of literature (Leal 120). While the exact definition of Magical Realism is open to interpretation, it is certain that Magical Realism gives a deeper meaning to ordinary life by unearthing mysteries that hide behind the world (Roh 16-17). In order to uncover these mysteries, Magical Realism combines fantasy with reality (Flores 110-111)....   [tags: Magical Realism Psychology]

Madame Bovary - Emma, Christianity, and Adultery - Emma, Christianity, and Adultery In Madame Bovary, Emma is depicted as a slave to her desires, namely, to the desire for what she calls love.

Flaubert as Emma in Madame Bovary - Flaubert as Emma in Madame Bovary          During the Nineteenth Century, Europe experienced a literary movement known as Romanticism.

The Role of Realism in Ibsen's, A Doll's House - Is “A Doll’s House” simply another text in which the composer questions the ideals of his society. Or is it advocating the rights of women as individuals, perhaps a pioneer in feminist literature. One may argue that “A Doll’s House” is nothing more than a product of Henrik Ibsen’s examination of his contemporary society’s values and morals, specifically those of the bourgeois class. But Ibsen does more than simply reflect upon these values and morals, and rather uses the setting of a middleclass household for his social commentary, exploring the moral conflict within his characters and the dangers of deception....   [tags: Henrik Ibsen, Literary Analysis] 727 words
