The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro - The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro Postmodern literature has its many spokesmen. Many would agree that Kazuo Ishiguro is not the most typical representative of this somewhat anarchistic literary and social movement, but he is certainly one of its most subtle and valuable artists. He uses the principles of post modernistic writing in a very meaningful way, and only after a thorough analysis can one fully appreciate all carefully constructed and presented elements trough which he successfully delivers his story....   [tags: Remains Day Kazuo Ishiguro Essays] 5294 words

Kazuo Ishiguro's Remains of the Day - Kazuo Ishiguro's Remains of the Day Kazuo Ishiguro's Remains of the Day gives an eloquent treatment of the issue of how a stoic English butler's unemotional reaction to the emotional world around him is damaging and painful, and how he resolves to make the best of the "remains of the day";the remainder of his life. Ishiguro explores some of the differences between the old English Victorian culture;that of the stiff upper lip, no show of emotion, and repression of personal opinion; and the no-holds-barred American culture of free expression of opinion and emotion....   [tags: Kazuo Ishiguro Remains of the Day Essays] 2852 words

Peace and Calm in Today Will Be A Quiet Day - Peace and Calm in Today Will Be A Quiet Day      It seems that everyone thinks that all disaster has struck in Amy Hempel’s "Today Will Be A Quiet Day."

The title suggests that this day was one of calmness and relaxation, but in reality the title should be " A Family in Turmoil." Throughout the trip, the children argue, complain, and bicker which seems to suggest that the day is rather depressing and quite humbling for the father (Baker 170).

Anna Letitia Barbauld's Washing Day - Anna Letitia Barbauld's Washing Day In "Washing Day" Anna Letitia Barbauld has done what Romantic poets can do best. She writes of an event that occurs periodically in every-day life, but she elevates the washing day chore to a challenge of epic proportions. Barbauld views the experience of wash day from the perspective of the woman she is and the child she was. At all times she is the poet who relates the Muses' song as a medieval minstrel might. Her skillful use of irony and hyperbole allows this poem to convey to contemporary readers the same humor and insight that an eighteenth-century audience would have appreciated....   [tags: Washing Day Poem Analysis] 633 words

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.

Review of the Movie, A Hard Day's Night - "A Hard Day's Night" catches the first flaring of Beatlemania in a manner at once subtle and intelligent.

All the while, the Beatles remain as laid back as can be, responding with dry, very British one-liners and shifting easily into melodic musical interludes, such as "Can't Buy Me Love," "All My Lovin'," and "I Wanna Be Your Man."

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 Solzhenits...   [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 mat...   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays]

One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich - Solzhenitsyn's Faith - One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's Faith Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is a professed Christian. However, according to some critics, this does not necessarily make his writings "Christian" (Schmemann 39). Biblical principles can clearly be identified in One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. They can be seen through Solzhenitsyn's views on the world as a divine creation, the nature of evil, and faith in the future. The Christian faith is rooted in the belief that God created everything, and that it is good....   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays] 596 words

One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch Literary Techniques - One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch Literary Techniques Alexander Solzhenitsyn's style of writing is economical and unornamental. This is particularly true of One Day. This would seemingly cause little difficulty in translating One Day were it not for the great amount of prison jargon contained in the dialogues and discussion of life in the camp. The author's motto might well be, "wie es eigentlich gewesen," or "tell it like it is." In believing as he does in honest realism and not the propaganda slogan of "socialist realism," Solzhenitsyn wishes to render the real-life situations he describes in so many of his writings-but especially in One Day-in real-life lang...   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays] 1005 words

Tradition in One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich - Tradition in One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich       Explicitly, old habits die hard. People are configurations of time, place, and events preceding their life. History is studied to get a better sense of self and to recognize the contributions of other humans to the world in which we live. Traditions transcend verbally, physically, and emotionally through generations, making it difficult, if not impossible, to ostracize them from our being. In One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, tradition is dissected through the dichotomy of traditional versus post-modernist views portrayed by characters forced to serve, or monitor, time in a Soviet prison camp....   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays]

To be true literature, "the pain and fears of society must be held before it, society must be warned against the moral and social dangers which threaten it."

There is No Hope of Doing Perfect Research - To answer the question of whether there can be such a thing as perfect research we would have to consider the research methodologies employed and how the research question is formulated and presented. The human mind is complex and in its complexity dwells room for misunderstanding and the propensity to err, so as long as the human mind is engaged in research, there can be no such thing as flawless research.

Freedom of Thought in Solzhenitsyn's One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich - There are many definitions of the term "freedom." Some will say that to be free one must be allowed to do as one pleases in terms of one's physical body, while others will say that one must only be able to think to be truly free. Yet another group will argue that both aspects must be present for true freedom to exist. In many of his books, but specifically One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn deals with the idea that the mind is not truly free. He believed that since there is an inherent desire for approval within the human race, any thoughts that agree with the values of society cannot be deemed free thinking since the thinker could simply be searching for approval...   [tags: One Day Life Ivan Denisovich Essays Papers] 621 words
