Gothic Horror in Susan Hill's The Woman in Black and H.G. Wells' The Red Room

- Gothic Horror in Susan Hill's The Woman in Black and H.G. Wells' The Red Room As with all things, the gothic horror genre of literature did not begin at one definable point, but evolved gradually. Gothic horror evolved out of gothic fiction (as opposed to classical fiction, for example the novels of Jane Austen), before establishing itself as a genre in its own right. However, many literary scholars and critics would point to "The Castle of Otranto", written by Horace Walpole and first published in 1764, as the first true gothic horror novel, containing as it does many of the clichs prevalent throughout the genre....   [tags: Wells Red Room Hill Woman Black Essays]

The Courage of Beowulf

- Courage is a theme that is shown throughout the entire epic of Beowulf. By definition courage is the state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes on ones own will and determination.

In this section there are two great speeches given by both Beowulf and Wiglaf. I believe that in both of these monologues courage is portrayed by the two warriors, and it is easy to see why....   [tags: Epic of Beowulf Essays]

The Courage to Differ

- Life has many instances in which one must choose whether to stand apart from the group and disagree with his peers or to nod vehemently in agreement and quickly seek security as a part of the group. Many choose to follow the crowd because of the fear of rejection.

Analysis Of ' Mother Courage And Her Children '

- Bertolt Brecht’s epic play Mother Courage and her Children has a didactic aesthetic that is achieved through withholding of catharsis. Whilst Mother Courage could be classed as a tragedy due to the suffering and loss of its characters, Brecht’s focus on society and his use of techniques common in ‘epic theatre’ (such as music) result in the play being epic rather than tragic (Curran 2001, 172). The focus on society in Mother Courage is seen through Brecht’s exploration of the theme of war, which is a mimetic response to the socio-political context of the time....   [tags: Bertolt Brecht, Epic theatre, Theatre]

How Mother Courage And Her Children

- In order to discuss how Mother Courage and her Children is a piece of epic theatre, I must first define it. Roland Barthes stated “In epic theatre (which proceeds by successive tableaux) all the burden of meaning and pleasure bears on each scene, not on the whole. At the level of the play itself, there is no meaning, no maturation: there is an ideal meaning (given straight in every tableau), but there is no final meaning, nothing but a series of segmentations, each of which possesses a sufficient demonstrative power.” Brecht has said that it can best be described by Döblin who “provided an excellent criterion when he said that with an epic work, as opposed to a dramatic, one can as it were...   [tags: Bertolt Brecht, Epic theatre, Theatre]
