Heroes and Heroism in Anita Desai's Clear Light of Day

- Heroes and Heroism in Anita Desai's Clear Light of Day       When one asks a child, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" a usual response is "a fireman" or "a ballerina."  In Anita Desai's Clear Light of Day, however, the young Bim and Raja are somewhat more ambitious; they answer that they want to be a hero and heroine.  Later, Bim asks somewhat bitterly, "The hero and heroine-where are they?  Down at the bottom of the well-gone, disappeared" (157).  Bim has lost track of her heroes; however, Raja and Tara have not.  The three siblings have very different relationships to heroic ideals....   [tags: Clear Light Day Essays Desai ]

Comparing Freedom at Midnight and Clear Light of Day

Just as women have always suffered under the oppression of men in patriarchal systems, a quarter of the world, the natives of India, the aborigines of Australia, the Canadians and Africans, endured the iron hand of British rule for centuries....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Creation of Feminine Space in Clear Light of Day

- Language constitutes a necessary factor in the analysis of a female voice. Femininity in writing can be discerned in a privileging of the voice: writing and voice are in fact woven together. The speaking woman is entirely her voice for she physically materializes what she is thinking: she signifies it with her body. Woman, in other words, is wholly and physically present in her voice and writing is no more than the extension of this self- identical prolongation of the speech act. What we find is that by adopting a feminine mode of writing Anita Desai is trying to create a feminine textual space, for the woman occupies a space in this world and this allows the existence of a female utterance...   [tags: Anita Desai]

The Effect Of Light On Human Perception

- Our perception of the world is dependent on our senses and response to stimulus. Sensation is the process of absorbing energy from a physical stimulus in the environment and converting this energy into neural impulses and sending them to the brain. The brain then interprets and organises this sensory information resulting in our subjective conscious experience or perception. (Lefton & Brannon 2003) The five human sensory organs receive the stimulus which determines our perception. Arguably the most important of these senses is vision....   [tags: Light, Color, Book of Optics, Eye]

One method he used is to apply robust design, which the authors believe as a useful tool of helping Edison’s innovation to acquire social acceptance and break lock-in of gas lighting institutes. The notion of robust design requires the innovators and entrepreneurs to make sophisticated decisions including what to present as new (novelty), what to present as old (similarity), and what to hide (Hargadon and Douglas 2001, 476--501)....   [tags: light, similarities]

Analysis Of The Poem ' Stopping By The Woods On A Rainy Day '

A perfect day to go for a walk and make mud angels in the clumps of green grass that we call our front yard. The only problem is my mother whom I was feeling not too kindly towards for botching my daytime activities.

Light Over Dark: The Choice Romeo And Juliet Didn’T Make

- Light Over Dark: The Choice Romeo and Juliet Didn’t Make The purpose of the light/dark motif in Romeo and Juliet is to show how Romeo and Juliet are unable to tell light from dark, or good from bad. I think everyone has the potential to discern what choices lead to “light” and what choices keep them in the “dark”. So Romeo and Juliet had that potential but I don’t think they wanted to know about that, since nothing else mattered to them but them. In this play, Romeo and Juliet do never make a clear choice of light over dark because they almost do not want to deal that decision in the midst of their romantic bliss....   [tags: Shakespeare Romeo Juliet Analysis]
