Nature and Purpose of Digression in Henry Fielding's Joseph Andrews - Nature and Purpose of Digression in Henry Fielding’s Joseph Andrews   It is perhaps a development of Henry Fielding’s verbose writing style that he includes so many digressions in the pages of Joseph Andrews. As an author, he is certainly not afraid to slow the pace of his tale for the development of a moral point, and although this most often takes the place of a paragraph or two within the main story, he does occasionally dedicate entire chapters to matters which are completely unrelated to the plot development but which expound ethical or theological ideas related to the themes of the text as a whole....   [tags: Henry Fielding Joseph Andrews Essays] 897 words

Most of the clergy that we meet in the story don’t fit our vision of “holy people”. They didn’t fit Fielding’s vision either....   [tags: essays papers] 1507 words

Analysis of Class in Henry Fielding's Joseph Andrew - Fielding sates that in his novel Joseph Andrews that he aims to “ describe not men, but manners;not an individual, but a species”1. He goes on to state that his aim is “not to expose one pitiful wretch to the small and contemptible circle of his acquaintance, but to hold the glass to thousands in their closets, that they may contemplate their deformity, and endeavour to reduce it, and thus by suffering private mortification may avoid public shame”2. Here we can see that Fielding is suggesting that this novel will contain characters we will recognise and he hopes that in recognising certain characters and laughing at their supposed superiority that we in turn will look at ourselves and perh...   [tags: comparative, andrews, fielding]

Anti-War Elements in Joseph Heller’s "Catch-22" - Critics often refer to Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 as an anti-war novel. At its core, the novel has a disparaging view of war. The main character, John Yossarian, believes that war is madness. He is astounded that men lay down their lives for vague concepts such as country, patriotism, and honor. However, unlike the typical anti-war novel, Catch-22 doesn’t focus on the most dismal aspects of war; Heller masterfully crafts an effective satirical style of addressing war. Corruption, confusion, and dishonesty run amok in the novel and these principles justify the embodiment of Catch-22 as an anti-war novel....   [tags: Joseph Heller, Catch-22, anti-war, ] 1165 words

The heart of darkness can be read as a political critique of western imperialism as exercised by the Belgians, who more or less raped the Congo of its resources while brutalizing the country's people and making them slaves of unbridled politi...   [tags: Joseph Conrad] 1505 words
