Immediately after I woke up on the day of my fifth birthday, my parents blind-folded me and led me to the dining room. Taking off the handkerchief, I stood in front of the most beautiful piano I had ever seen....   [tags: essays research papers] 669 words

How McEwan Presents Ideas about Memory and Recall in Enduring Love - How McEwan Presents Ideas about Memory and Recall in Enduring Love In ‘Enduring Love” McEwan has created a storyline that refers to the 1st person narrator’s own perception of his own mind and memory. Because of this we do not know whether to trust Joe or not as he is extremely biased in his own opinion. At the very beginning of the novel we, as the reader, feel extremely safe being “in Joe’s hands” because we see the very scientific, rational mind; however as we go on through the story we see the loss of rationality and we are given hints not to trust Joe as much as we did; “His writing’s rather like yours” and “Mr Tapp went to the toilet, not his daughter”....   [tags: Enduring Love Ian McEwan Literature Essays] 1638 words

Isobel's Room - Original Writing - Isobel's Room - Original Writing Ever since Isobel had left, on a cold and frosty February morning last year, her room was mine. When Isobel was here, I would go into her room when she was out. I would tiptoe in, so as not to disturb the prints in the carpet from her graceful feet. I would gaze in envy at the numerous beautiful hardback books that our mother had given her; they had never been read and simply collected dust and had stood in piles. It made me bitter when I thought of the tattered copies of the classics I had scavenged for at jumble sales and the efforts I made to return the library books I so frequently borrowed....   [tags: Papers] 1128 words

They are both horror stories, a genre which has been popular throughout the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. This is perhaps because, since we are no longer scared on a daily basis, as would have been the case in medieval times, we need to find an artificial way of creating the thrill....   [tags: English Literature] 3760 words
