The Misidentification of The Day We Were Dogs - The Misidentification of The Day We Were Dogs      "The Day We Were Dogs," published in 1993 by Elena Garro, illustrates the common error of misidentification of Magical Realism. The fact that Garro is a Mexican author and that fantasy is so closely related to Magical Realism often causes the reader to associate this particular work with Magical Realism. However, this work also contains fantastic elements as well as sublime characteristics, which make it difficult to classify as a strictly Magical Realist work....   [tags: Day We Were Dogs Essays]

Identifying The Day We Were Dogs - Identifying The Day We Were Dogs        Whether or not "The Day We Were Dogs" (1993) is a magical realist story is questionable. Often stories are misidentified because of the closeness of literature such as magical realism, the fantastic, and the sublime. The story leaves a lot to one's imagination instead of presenting it in the text. Elena Garro blends two days and two completely different worlds together in this story.

Hollywood and Nathaniel West's The Day of the Locust - Hollywood and Nathaniel West's The Day of the Locust Works Cited Missing Although set in the 1930s, Nathanael West’s The Day of the Locust ironically resembles contemporary Hollywood. Within the glamorous setting of Hollywood, West’s characters take on multiple roles instead of assuming individual personalities. They put on and remove these imaginary personality masks, similar to those in the Commedia dell’Arte, to exhibit a range of emotions that only their character type would exhibit. Consequently, West’s characters are trapped in this restrictive atmosphere, especially at the end of the novel when they become part of a collective mob....   [tags: Nathaniel West Day Locust Esays] 3540 words

Symbols and Symbolism in Long Day's Journey into Night -   Symbolism is used throughout O¹Neill¹s Long Day¹s Journey into Night, a portrayal of the  author¹s life.  The three prominent symbols, the fog, the foghorn, and Mary¹s glasses, represent the characters¹ isolation from reality.  The symbols in ³Long Day¹s Journey into  Night² are used to substitute illusion for reality.  Although Mary is the character directly associated with living in illusion, all characters in the play try to hide from the truth in their own ways. At the beginning of the second act, O'Neill notes a change in setting which has taken place since the play opened.  No sunlight comes into the room now  and there is a faint haziness in the air.  This haziness or fog obscures one¹s perception  of the world, and it parallels the attempts of each member of the family to obscure or hide reality.  Tyrone, for example, drinks whiskey to escape his son¹s criticism of how cheap he is.  The reference to fog always has a double meaning in this play,  referring both to the atmosphere and to the family.  Much of the activity carried on by the Tyrone family is under-handed and sneaky, they are always attempting to put something over on somebody  and obscure the truth....   [tags: Long Day's Journey into Night] 659 words

Willy Russell's Our Day Out - Willy Russell's "Our Day Out" Willy Russell has written many plays over the last thirty years, but there is one feature that is common to all of them: the issue of social and cultural background. This is the situation of the characters; their surroundings; their class; the society in which they are brought up, and the culture of that society. It is this that can lead to the behaviour, feelings, opinions and general outlook of the characters. Russell explores the effects that society and culture can have on people in all his plays, but in none is it so poignant as in 'Our Day Out', the story of what happens when Mrs Kay takes her Progress class out of inner-city Liverpool on a school trip to Conwy Castle, Wales....   [tags: Willy Russell Our Day Out Essays] 4150 words

The Theme of Hope in One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich - The Theme of Hope in One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich       In Alexander Solzhenitsyn's novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, the strong themes of hope and perseverance are undercut by the realization that for Ivan there is little or no purpose in life.  This is not to say that the themes of hope and perseverance do not exist in the novel.  There are numerous instances in the novel where Shukhov is filled with hope. However, these moments of hope amidst the banal narrative of the novel raise the interesting question:  Are these moments of hope pointless?  The answer to this question may lie more in the individual human nature of the reader than in Solzhenitsyn's literary technique.  Whether pointless or not, Solzhenitsyn offers many instances in the novel where the themes of hope and perseverance are evident.  The glimpses of hope which Ivan Denisovich sees includes the few moments after reveille that the prisoners have to themselves, respecting his fellow prisoners, taking pride in a job well done, and enjoying simple food and tobacco....   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays]

The Incredible Power of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich - The Incredible Power of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich           It has been Russian writers in particular, who for two centuries have struggled against censorship and oppression to accomplish two great tasks: to create innovative and meaningful art, and to use that art to make a statement about a specifically Russian predicament. So often the theme was political, and so many generations of Russians criticised Mother Russia for her backward ways. Vissarion Belinsky's caustic admonitions in his "Letter to Gogol" were long a rallying cry for writers: "This is why, especially among us, universal attention is paid...to every manifestation of any so-called liberal trend, no matter how poor the writer's gifts...The public...sees in Russian writers its only leaders, defenders and saviours from dark autocracy, Orthodoxy, and the national way of life." This conditional existence was the inheritance of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who followed the great Russian tradition of the intelligentsia....   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays]

The Siberian Work Camp and One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich - The Siberian Work Camp and One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich       In Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn describes in three volumes the Russian prison system known as the gulag.  That work, like Kafka's The Trial, presents a culture and society where there is no justice - in or out of court.  Instead, there is a nameless, faceless, mysterious bureaucracy that imposes its will upon the people, coercing them to submit to the will of the state or face prison or death.  In One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich, we are presented with exactly what the titles tells us, one day in the life of Ivan Denisovich.  However, Ivan Denisovich spends his days in the gulag in Siberia, freezing and starving with the other prisoners while he serves the remainder of a ten year sentence.  Ivan is not a hero or extraordinary.  Instead, he is an ordinary example of the type of individual who spent their days in the gulag.  What emerges from these ordinary individuals is the strength and will to survive and at the end of the day, a day that millions of others spent just like Ivan, still find the courage to conclude "Almost a happy day" (Solzhenitsyn 159).  This analysis will focus on the historical significance of the event covered in this work, i.e., the daily life of an ordinary prisoner in a Siberian work camp in communist Russia.  A conclusion will discuss how a novel provides the reader with a different viewpoint of history than that provided by the pundit or historian....   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays]

God is perfect because he created perfection. This leaves only two options; 1. Everything is perfect because God created it. 2. Every thing is imperfect in comparison to God. Man is far from perfect, and is in fact the most imperfect being in Gods kingdom. Man is the only living creature capable of intentional sin, by this I mean no other creature on the earth is capable of committing acts and understanding that they are wrong, but rather they commit them as an act of instinct rather than reason like the sins of man....   [tags: Theology, Religion] 289 words

Hate, a feeling of demonic control of anger. A bitter rotting corpse of emotion balled into a pale, cold, burnt of flesh smelled dough, waiting to be molded by any passing faceless victim....   [tags: essays research papers] 483 words
