By Jane Austen's time, the genre had a clear enough definition of itself that her narrators rarely occasioned to intrude like Fielding's. Her first novel, Northanger Abbey contains some intrusive passages, though, even as a novice, she was developing a far more subtle approach to commentary. Austen argues for the novel without lengthy interruption, but like Fielding, forgoes authenticity in the process. By exposing the author's process and methods, Northanger Abbey and Tom Jones both concede the inherent fictionality of their work, but more importantly, they ... ... middle of paper ... ...iece, with lengthy, persuasive essay-like chapters throughout the text. Austen compresses her commentary and the narrator does not dominate the discussion.
In order to reach his enlightenment Chris must be alone in his quest, he cannot have too much contact or help from someone, because then he never would have survived on his own in the wilderness. So for Chris to achieve his goal of transcendentalism, he must abandon all civilization in the hopes of finding true wilderness without too much assistance, that is the only way for his great odyssey to
However, the poem seems to be deceivingly simple because in its simplicity, it opens the door for many different interpretations. Mostly though, "The Road Not Taken" can truly be interpreted as a clear representation of two fair choices. Although the two roads in the poem are diverging, they lead in different directions. At the beginning they probably appear to be similar, but miles away, they will grow farther and farther away from each other, similar to many choices we are faced with in life. It is impossible to fortell the consequences of most of the major decisions we make and it is often necessary to make these decisions based on little more than examining which choice "wanted wear."
When faced with making a choice he takes the easy way out rather than committing to the more difficult choice. Ultimately, this deprives him of achieving goals that could bring him gratification. He convinces himself and the reader that he is clever in the short term, but in the long term he has achieved nothing and has a shallow, empty existence. Holden makes many wise statements during the story. He states "people always think something's all true" (Salinger 13).
I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all” (173 Salinger). Also, Holden’s trying to save kids from making the same mistakes that he would by catching them before jumping into adulthood he doesn’t want them to grow up making the same mistakes that he did. Holden soon realizes that he can’t catch every single kid from falling into adulthood because it isn’t in his powers to help them because it’s a move they have to take. Second, Holden’s red hunting hat has another significance which is being that it’s the same color as the color of Allies hair. This demonstrates symbolism because he really didn’t have a closer relationship with Allie.
“Chris brought home good grades” (Krakauer 114) says Hathaway. Chris McCandless went into the wild without wanting to save anyone from society. It is the opposite of what Caulfield wanted to do which is to save the innocence of little children from falling off the cliff. It is an evidence that Caulfield wanted to escape society not just for himself but also the innocence of little children. McCandless escaped society only for his own good.
Dey can’t bother me” (Page 156). He has heard about people in the Everglades and has made a false judgement, assuming that everything will be okay if he has money. Throughout the entire novel, Hurston uses Janie to show all the judgements that can be made without even knowing a person or place. Whether the judgement is a harsh or gentle one it is evident that they are made very often. Usually with little evidence about the subject.
William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying In his book, As I Lay Dying, William Faulkner pioneers new and interesting literary forms. His most obvious deviation from traditional novel writing was the new style of narration in which he used all the main characters as the narrator at one point or another. This allowed the reader to gain insight into the character’s thoughts, and also to prove very interesting and entertaining. Faulkner also ignores all boundaries that sane people have placed upon the English language to keep it readable. Faulkner forges his own set of rules for syntax that allow for a very choppy yet elegant stream of consciousness in the character’s narration.

Salinger's experience with a rough childhood was critical in the making of this novel. Without the knowledge of a rough childhood, Salinger wouldn’t have been able to parallel himself through Holden Caulfield.
One example of Bleachers’ believability is the setting, and when using New Critical analysis, we see that the setting of Bleachers is believable. Bleachers takes place in a small town known as Messina, which is assumed to be a football crazed town somewhere in the South.

As Arnold Mandell once stated: Football is not a game but a religion, a metaphysical island of fundamental truth in a highly verbalized, disguised society, a throwback of 30,000 generations of anthropological time.
