Analysis Of Ian Mcewan 's Atonement

- Ian McEwan’s Atonement is great example of character involvement in text, for to understand a characters need to atone, the reader needs to understand the psyche of the character. The book, which is aptly named after that which it represents, is written so that the events transpiring either give insight to the mind of the character, set up the conflicts that will lead to the need for atonement, or are the act of atonement themselves. It is by focalizing through specific characters throughout the book that McEwan creates a theme of atonement and it is by understanding the psyche of the characters, and their need to atone that the novel gets it’s forward movement....   [tags: Novel, Ian McEwan, Narrative, Mind]

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]

Aphra Behn and the Changing Perspectives on Ian Watt’s The Rise of the Novel

- Aphra Behn and the Changing Perspectives on Ian Watt’s The Rise of the Novel Ian Watt’s The Rise of the Novel (1957) remains one of the most influential texts in the study of the English novel. However, an increasingly strong case for a revision of both the work itself and the discourse it personifies has been gradually building over the past twenty years. While the initial stages of, first, feminist and, later, post colonial perspectives may have sought only to insert marginalised texts into the existing literary discourse, their long term ramifications are obliging a wider analysis of how we approach the English novel and the manner in which we link it to its surrounding culture....   [tags: Ian Watt The Rise of the Novel Essays]

Theater With a Conscience: Margaret Fleming

- During the 1890's, American audiences still saw theater as a form of entertainment and therefore, it could not be considered a medium through which to comment on the social situation of the society. However, across the Atlantic, Henrik Ibsen was steadily bringing realist drama to prominence and simultaneously achieving critical acclaim. At home, James A. Herne débuted his radical play, Margaret Fleming, but achieved little success. However, it did draw both positive and negative criticism. Such a varied reaction to such a controversial play at such a pivotal time must have a profound effect on the society that existed during this time....   [tags: Theater]

For example, on the way to war, “The regiment was fed and caressed at station after station until the youth [Henry] had believed that he must be a hero” (Crane 13). Since he has yet to fight in war, Henry believes a hero is defined by what others think of him and not what he actually does. The most heroic thing he has done so far is enlist, but even that was with ulterior motives; he assumes fighting in the war will bring him glory, yet another object of others’ opinions....   [tags: Hero, Courage, F.

The content, then, seems quite modern for the play's 1890 date. Yet, Herne is the successor of a playwright like Henrik Ibsen rather than Bronson Howard or, even, Augustin Daly.

The Comfort of Strangers by Ian McEwan

- Review of The comfort of strangers by Ian McEwan ================================================== This is a very interesting book by McEwan as well as being rather confusing. The name ‘the comfort of strangers’ fits the storyline perfectly. This is a very mysterious book in which the two of the main characters Caroline and Roger are slowly tightening the noose on the necks of the other two main characters Mary and Colin. I think the book fits into the mystery genre as far as the writing of the author goes and I found that some parts of the book reminded me of ‘Enduring Love’....   [tags: English Literature]
