Clarissa or The History of a Young Lady - Clarissa or The History of a Young Lady   In the Johnson age there are many popular writers.  One of these authors is Samuel Richardson, who was a novelist.  His most popular novels were Pamela and Clarissa, which are both constructed of a series of letters.  Clarissa, however, was regarded as one of his most popular European novels.  "His masterpiece, Clarissa, or the History of a Young Lady, one of the greatest European novels, was published in 1747-8" (Richardson, 1).   When Richardson wrote Clarissa his intention was to write a novel of a series of letters that were written by an unskilled author.  This book contains 537 letters written by various characters in the novel.  Because the book is so long I could not read the whole thing nor have  I ever read it before.  As a result I can not say a lot about it.  Because I find it is a little hard to read I was not able to read as much as I would have like to in the four hours that we were to set aside to read the book.  I did, however, manage to read the first eight letters in the novel.  The first letter was written to Clarissa Harlowe from her good friend Anna Howe.  This letter is used to introduce the reader to the problems that have been going on in the Harlowe home that lead to Clarissa being the topic of gossip....   [tags: Clarissa History of a Young Lady] 892 words

Clarissa's Way of Death - Clarissa's Way of Death In Clarissa, Samuel Richardson finds "an exemplar to her sex." But her story does not provide a model to live by, as such a qualification may lead one to expect. Only in the afterlife does Clarissa presumably receive what she deserves. The life suggested by her example is untenable. Clarissa's death is the inevitable result of her unrealistic, unimpeachable virtue ­ a virtue that is defined less by what she does than by what she will permit. Her death serves not only a narrative end in the novel, but the demands of psychological realism....   [tags: Samuel Richardson Clarissa Essays] 4074 words

The Light in A Sketch of the Past and Mrs. Dalloway - The Light in A Sketch of the Past and Mrs. Dalloway      Virginia Woolf's method to writing fiction was always to "dig out beautiful caves1" behind, within, and around her characters - to tunnel through their consciousness in order to tell their story as artfully as one tells his or her own.  It is her "tunneling" process that makes her style so distinctive: her sentences layered with multiple meanings, her paragraphs rich with stream-of-consciousness internal monologue, and her dialogue sparse.  Clearly, she had few qualms about taking the modern novel's all-too-common, linear form of storytelling and turning it upside down in order to dig through to its core - its very essence - and fill it in with her own art.  The resultant caves are denser, more detailed and, consequently, often darker than the literary creations of other women writers of her time.  To craft them, Woolf manipulates both the direction and span of time, includes literary allusions, and crafts her sentences so as to better develop her characters' relationships to her themes and each other.      In A Sketch of the Past, Virginia Woolf describes the circumstances under which memories evince themselves: "the past," she says, "comes back when the present runs so smoothly that it is like the sliding of a deep river."  This view of time - of the past's reemergence during controlled moments in the present - resonates throughout Woolf's characters' stream-of-consciousness narrative.  In Mrs....   [tags: Sketch Dalloway]

Analysis on the novel "The Hours" - QUESTIONS ON THE FILM “THE HOURS” 1) “The Hours”, based on the novel written by Michael Cunningham, is more than a biographical movie about Virginia Woolf. How can you discribe the importance and co- relation between the three female main characters: Virginia, Laura Brown and Clarissa Vaughan. The novel is essentially about women. Women from different periods, of different ages, and oddly the same in various aspects. We get to know women that apparently lead perfect lives, considering the external aspect, and all of them come to a moment in their lives when they stumble upon the superficiality of their days and face their disturbed inner selves....   [tags: essays research papers] 1197 words

Ian McEwan's Enduring Love - Ian McEwan's Enduring Love Evident throughout the entire plot of ‘Enduring Love’, Ian McEwan fuses three different genres: love story, detective story and thriller. Each genre I believe has a set of expectations that captures the reader urging them to read on, for example a thriller genre would stereotypically be led by a fast, tense pace with characters easily identifiable as ‘goodies’ and ‘baddies’. Different, fresh and ‘novel’ McEwan establishes his break up of typical genres as he mixes the elements of the three main genres and purposely doesn’t stick to their rigid framework that many authors swear by....   [tags: Ian McEwan Enduring Love Essays] 1205 words

An Abstract View of Death in Mrs.Dalloway and The Hours - An Abstract View of Death in Mrs.Dalloway and The Hours Works Cited Missing In Mrs. Dalloway and The Hours contradictory and almost altered views of death are presented. Virginia Woolf and Michael Cunningham portray death as escape for some, but an entrapment for others. It is no longer treated as a subject to worry about or fear, which society now views it as. A line from Shakespeare's Cymbeline, "Fear no more the heat o' the sun / Nor the furious winter rages," sums up what the authors of Mrs....   [tags: Virginia Woolf Michael Cunningham] 1675 words

Depictions of the Social/Economic Upper-Class in England - ... When Austen states that “the man and one of the maids were sent off immediately into Devonshire” (Austen 21), she indicates that the Dashwood’s servants perform all of their household duties. The upper-class women spend their leisure time attending private balls and parties hosted by the elite, whom they also mingle and journey with. When Austen says that Lady Middleton “had the advantage of being able to spoil her children all the year round” (Austen 25), she suggests that the upper-class live a luxurious lifestyle because they are able to indulge in whatever their heart desires....   [tags: Comparative, Austen, Wilde] 1328 words

Use of the Mock-epic Style in The Rape of the Lock - Use of the Mock-epic Style in The Rape of the Lock "The triumph of the Baron's rape is in exactly the same high language as it would be if he were Hector." In The Rape of the Lock, Pope uses the mock-epic style to satirise the seriousness with which a trivial misdemeanour (the theft of a few strands of hair) and the ways of gender polarised society can be blown beyond all sense of proportion. Thus the male mentality, through the Baron, is portrayed as lacking depth or personality beyond that required to achieve its ends; men objectify and devise "strategems" (4,120) to conquer their female obsessions; they are "victor[s]" (4,162) who self-importantly congratulate themselves as meriting "wreaths of triumph" (4,161) when they have seized what they desire....   [tags: Rape Of The Lock Essays]

Commerce, Politics and the City in A Room of One's Own and Mrs. Dalloway - Commerce, Politics and the City in A Room of One's Own and Mrs. Dalloway        "...At this moment, as so often happens in London, there was a complete lull and suspension of traffic. Nothing came down the street; nobody passed. A single leaf detached itself from the plane tree at the end of the street, and in that pause and suspension fell. Somehow it was like a signal falling, a signal pointing to a force in things which one had overlooked ... Now it was bringing from one side of the street to the other diagonally a girl in patent leather boots and then a young man in a maroon overcoat; it was also bringing a taxi-cab; and it brought all three together at a point directly beneath my window; where the taxi stopped; and the girl and the young man stopped; and they got into the taxi; and the cab glided off as if it were swept on by the current elsewhere."

Cunningham's The Hours: The Mind of Virginia Wolf - While writing a fiction novel, I would think that the writer would have to dig deep into their mind and into their heart in order for them to convey realistic emotions through their characters. This process could almost be related to hypnosis where the writer relies on his or her inner thoughts and feelings to effectively add depth to their novel's fictitious characters. In the novel Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Woolf used a technique called stream-of-consciousness in which she attempted to write the novel in the same patterns as her brain's thought process....   [tags: Cunningham Hours Essays]

Virginia Woolf - Virginia Woolf In recent times there has been a renewed interest in Virginia Woolf and her work, from the Broadway play, “Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” to the Academy award nominated film “The Hours” starring Nicole Kidman. This recent exposure, along with the fact that I have ancestors from England , has sparked my interest in this twentieth century British novelist. During the early part of the twentieth century, artists and writers saw the world in a new way. Famed British novelist Virginia Woolf was very sensitive to this change, for she felt that human relationships such as ones between a husband and wife of master and servant were shifting, due to all of the political, religious, and social changes....   [tags: Novelists Authors Writers Essays]

The Rape of the Lock - The Rape of the Lock Alexander Pope's mock heroic epic The Rape of the Lock appears to be a light subject addressed with a satiric tone and structure. Pope often regards the unwanted cutting of a woman's hair as a trivial thing, but the fashionable world takes it seriously. Upon closer examination Pope has, perhaps unwittingly, broached issues worthy of earnest consideration. The Rape of the Lock at first glance is a commentary on human vanity and the ritual of courtship. The poem also discusses the relationship between men and women, which is the more substantial matter in particular....   [tags: Papers] 1261 words

Death and Rebirth in the Hours - Death and re-birth in The Hours Adapted from Michael Cunningham's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Director Stephen Daldry and playwright David Hare, The Hours was inspired by Virginia Woolf's 1925 novel Mrs. Dalloway. It is no coincidence that The Hours was the working title Woolf had given Mrs. Dalloway as she was writing it. The emotional trauma that this film guides its viewers through becomes evident in the opening prologue. The scene begins with Virginia Woolf composing what would be her suicide notes to her husband Leonard and her sister Vanessa, the two most important people in her life (Curtis, 57.) She begins: "I feel certain that I am going mad again: I feel we can't go through another of these terrible times......   [tags: Film] 1360 words

Literary Analysis of "The Rape of the Lock" - Author and his times: Alexander Pope was born in London in 1688. Because he was a Roman Catholic living in a predominately Protestant society, he was largely excluded from the university system and therefore was self-taught, for the most part. At the age of twelve, he contracted tuberculosis, a disease that left him stunted and misshapen. Consequently, he suffered a great deal of emotional trauma and social anxiety. His only tool for interaction was his incredible wit and talent for writing. He soon formed a number of lifelong friendships in London's prestigious literary circles, and found his happiness there....   [tags: European Literature] 1931 words

The set of values according to which one judges everyday events upon is the result of the reality formed based on other’s interpretations of the world. When one lacks the knowledge to develop a sound reality, one relies upon the reality of others to come to a sensible interpretation.
