Magical Elements in The Day We Were Dogs - Magical Elements in The Day We Were Dogs       The short story "The Day We Were Dogs", first published in 1993, was written by Elena Garro. She was born in Pueblo, Mexico, on December 15, 1920. I feel that the story definitely has to deal with magical realism. "The Day We Were Dogs" has too many magical elements that are treated as normal not to be magical realism. However, I also felt that the story has some unreal elements that are not treated as normal. Therefore, I feel that the story may also fit into the genre of fantastic literature, which creates questions about the unreal elements....   [tags: Day We Were Dogs Essays]

Sublime and Fantastic Elements in The Day We Were Dogs - Sublime and Fantastic Elements in The Day We Were Dogs      "The Day We Were Dogs" is a short story written by an author born in Puebla, Mexico, in 1993. Elena Garro's major themes revolve around the concepts of time and memory. I do not believe this story is a true example of magical realism; however I do see the sublime and the fantastic used in this story. I think that this story is really a misidentification of magical realism. To start out, I was moved by the way the author talked about a day with two days inside of it....   [tags: Day We Were Dogs Essays]

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 ]

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]

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 language....   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays] 1005 words

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]

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]

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. To make research as near to perfection as possible it is important to look at the design of the methodology and eliminate areas that might introduce "problems" the methodology that does not leave any room for error....   [tags: Research Analysis ]

While the lawyer commends English laws for the hanging of thieves, Hythloday responds, "theft alone is not a grave offense that ought to be punished with death," illustrating the Utopian belief of the higher value of human life than that of material possessions (More 61). More also discusses that when the state must wage war, the value of Utopian life must be taken into consideration, for Utopia values its citizens' lives to a great extent, and only as a last resort will it risk the lives of its people....   [tags: Philosophy ]

Age and Beauty in Next Day by Randall Jarrell - Age and Beauty In the poem "Next Day" by Randall Jarrell, the speaker is a lady who is very troubled by her increasing age. I think it is interesting that this was written in 1965 because that is the same year that the author died. It raises the question of whether the poem was about his own feelings or if it was about another person. Perhaps he knew that his life was coming to an end soon and before he died he wanted to convey his thoughts to others. The title suggests that the speaker is writing about the implications of the days to come and maybe learning to face them....   [tags: Next Day Randall Jarrell] 476 words
