Response to A God Of Small Things

- Response to A God Of Small Things One of the main themes in Arundhati Roy's A God Of Small Things is discrimination in the caste system. Roy tells the story of the hardships faced by the Untouchables, the lowest caste in the caste system. Technically, the Untouchables are not even in the caste system because to put them in the same system as the other four castes would be offensive to the rest of them. Another theme in this novel is forbidden love. These two themes, discrimination in the caste system and forbidden love, come together when Mammachi sneaks across the river "to love by night the man her children love by day", to meet Velutha....   [tags: Literature Response]

Reader Response Criticism

- Fish’s Reader Response Criticism is composed of two interdependent ideas: first, that the meaning of texts is shaped by the reading experience itself, and second, that these meanings cannot be judged to be correct or incorrect, but merely belonging to one “interpretive community” or another. The first idea may be identified as the executive aspect of Reader Response Criticism because it analyzes the act of reading, while the second idea is the epistemological aspect of the theory because it circumscribes the knowledge we can acquire about a text to the merely relative....   [tags: Literary Response]

Reader Response Essay - On The Strong Breed

- Reader Response Essay - On The Strong Breed Reading Wole Soyinka’s Strong Breed, I get to wondering about disclosure and ritual, disclosure between characters and to audiences, rituals of drama and religion. As I read the play, I see ample signs that both Sunma and Eman know about the curse-binding ritual that is to take place before midnight. I see signs of Sunma’s more specific knowledge in her shunning of Ifada from the start of the play. She declares, “Get away, idiot” (853). From the start Sunma is agitated and hopes that she and Eman might get away for “only two days” (857), as long as the two of them might “watch the new year together--in some other place” (856)....   [tags: Reader Response Essays]

Response To A Modest Proposal By Jonathan Swift

- Desperate times often call for desperate measures, and proposals of desperate measures are often met with swift criticism if they are found to be without rational thought and merit. It is unlikely that anyone in their right mind would consider, for any amount of time, the proposal of rearing children, or properly raising them, as food to help alleviate poverty-stricken Ireland in 1729. Yet, Jonathan Swift’s suggestion was satirical brilliance, and it was a modest proposal for illuminating the cause of Ireland’s woes....   [tags: Literary Response]

Response to Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson

- Response to Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson I believe that, essentially, life consists of a series of choices. A grouping of these choices in one direction or another makes us who we are, and ultimately we have control over our lives. What makes one person different from another is his own set of choices. When going through life’s motions, we develop certain worldviews and ideas and values to live by. We develop an opinion of what makes a person “great.” In the well-known essay “Self-Reliance”, Ralph Waldo Emerson provides a beautiful way of approaching these choices, and he reveals a very inspiring set of values centralized around going through life answering only to yourself....   [tags: English Literature, Literary Response]

It provides comparison to the opposing theistic perspective pertaining to the existence of God. It argues for the reasons and virtues behind the belief of atheism to prove its superiority over theism as a source of strength. In the essay, McCloskey refers to arguments like the cosmological argument, teleological argument, and arguments from design as proofs. He argues that since there is no evidence to prove these arguments to be true, therefore they aren’t and for that reason the idea of the mere existence of God should be removed from our thinking....   [tags: On Being an Athiest, H.J.

The Original Response Of The Television

- The original response to the television was less than stellar. When early inventors first came up with their different ideas of how TVs could work, nobody wanted to hear it. One example is John Logie Baird. When he presented his idea to a British Marconi, a company which was central to communications, assistant he stated, “It was as if I asked if he was interested in brothels,” (Kisseloff 10). Obviously, the representative wanted nothing to do with television and its development.

Response Essay : ' Orientation '

- Response Essay for the “Orientation” Daniel Orozco surprises his audience with his exceptional short story, the “Orientation.” The story is about a job orientation for a new employee leaded by the narrator, who is another worker. Although the new employee is the main character, he is not important to the story, not even the job he is starting. Orozco never states the identity of the narrator or the main character, but he includes a number of details regarding the other workers’ lives. The “Orientation” is unique since it seems more like a conversation: the narrator, the only one who speaks, is having a typical discussion with the main character, the new employee....   [tags: Fiction, Narrative, Character, Protagonist]
