Not only does he constantly repeat notions of his sanity, but he often displays extreme and irrational emotions, and presents his story in a pseudo-logical manner that manifests itself in his rambling narration and unexplainable actions....   [tags: Analysis: Read, Evaluate, Agree]

However, concerns about quality remain as omissions will be made, analytic structures are not all encompassing, and philosophical points may induce chaos.

If William Shakespeare truly wrote such a passage, then his utter indifference to the spelling of his name is contradictory. "In addition, the pattern would require belief that the reserved the Shakespeare spelling almost exclusively - and uniformly - for the poem and plays, but permitted the Stratfordian spelling for his business dealings" (Whalen...   [tags: authorship, English literature, history]

Calvino is an essayist, a literary theorist, a writer of fiction and, to a large extent, a visionary. Paradoxically, much of the modernity he has explored in his narratives has its roots in the simplicity of folk tales, and his own short fiction has the elemental power of myth and allegory....   [tags: essays research papers] 545 words
