The Fat Woodworker By Antonio Manetti

- Antonio Manetti, a Florentine Humanist and holder of several high offices in Florence, was the author of the delightful novella known as the Fat Woodworker. This novella, first published in its final refined form in the 1470’s, tells the story of a rather complex and slightly malicious trick created by a genius architect known as Filippo Brunelleschi. While the trick is mean at times, the reader tends to not notice because of the comedic way that the fat woodworker reacts. The prank that unfolds can in some ways closely parallel the many tricks that occur in Boccaccio’s Decameron, though there are some large differences....   [tags: Filippo Brunelleschi, Florence]

Willa Cather 's My Antonia

- Willa Cather’s 1918 novel My Ántonia is often celebrated for its complimentary depiction of the immigrants that flocked to America at the turn of the twentieth century and hailed for its progressive approach to the ever-relevant immigrant debate. Despite the novel’s superficial benevolence towards foreigners, Janis Stout questions the authenticity of the book’s (and, by extension, Cather’s) kindnesses in her critical article “Coming to America/Escaping to Europe.” Stout argues that Cather’s ethnic characters (or lack thereof) reflect the popular, discriminatory views of her time, and extracts evidence from both the novel and the author’s personal life to buttress this claim....   [tags: United States]

Francisco d’Anconia in Ayn Rand's _Atlas Shrugged_

- Francisco d’Anconia bursts onto the pages of Atlas Shrugged just as “he flew through the days of his summer months,” “like a rocket” (94). Through Dagny’s eyes, Ayn Rand introduces Francisco as larger than, and full of, life—a being of pure joy; a shining beacon of ability, productiveness, purpose. It is no wonder that Dagny expects great things from Frisco d’Anconia. Yet, Dagny is crushed by what Francisco does become. He “changes his course,” leaving Dagny, and the reader, with the question: how could Francisco d’Anconia, purpose and productivity incarnate, a man who, even as a boy, understood that industry is “the most important thing on earth” and that to study a motor is to “[absorb] th...   [tags: Character Analysis]

Franz Kafka's Novella, The Metamorphosis

- One of the saddest aspects of Franz Kafka's novella, The Metamorphosis, concerns the fact that young Gregor Samsa genuinely cares about this family, working hard to support them, even though they do little for themselves.
