- How does Hardy show social injustice in the 19th Century in England. Thomas Hardy was born in 1840 and died in 1928 at the age of 88. Thomas Hardy’s father was a stonemason and his mother a servant to a vicar.

The Setting for Thomas Hardy's The Withered Arm and Other Wessex Tales

- The Setting for Thomas Hardy's The Withered Arm and Other Wessex Tales In the following essay I seek to show evidence of how Thomas Hardy was acutely aware of the social status of people, how village and town life was conducted, how men and women reacted to their own sex and to each other and the part religion played in people's daily lives. Social class is raised a lot in Hardy's pieces. Even though these stories were all written at a different time and then put together, you can see it is a strong theme in the book....   [tags: Papers]

A Sense of Tragedy and Humour in alan Bennett's Talking Heads Monologues

- A Sense of Tragedy and Humour in alan Bennett's Talking Heads Monologues Alan Bennett uses a variety of techniques to convey a sense of both tragedy and humour in his 'Talking Heads' monologues. I will be looking specifically at 'Bed Among The Lentils' and 'Cream Cracker Under The Settee.' Alan Bennett achieves both of these effects by use of several clever choices regarding the casting as well as sound and visual effects. There are two very different types of humour in 'Bed Among The Lentils' and 'Cream Cracker Under The Settee'....   [tags: Papers]

Father LaTour as the Hero in Death Comes for the Archbishop

- Father LaTour as the Hero in Death Comes for the Archbishop In Willa Cather's Death Comes for the Archbishop, the heroic ideal whose definition began with Moby-Dick is again viewed. Father LaTour is clearly seen as having an elevated status, concern and understanding for the people, and a desire to make a lasting mark on the land that becomes his home. These characteristics were seen in differing ways in both Ahab and Jo in Little Women. In The Red Badge of Courage, the concept of courage in the hero was addressed....   [tags: Death Comes for the Archbishop]

- The Impact of the Beginning of Jane Eyre on the Audience 'Jane Eyre' is a book that is written in a way that draws the reader into Jane's life and emotions. At the beginning of the book, we see nineteenth century life through a child's eyes. Jane is not treated kindly or with love and because of this we see how awfully some children were treated in the nineteenth century, so very different to our world today where that would be unacceptable to treat a child badly, this impacts the reader dramatically....   [tags: Papers]

- Marriage and Relationships in William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew Getting married in modern times is not something which is viewed as necessary.

Werther as the Prototypical Romantic in Sorrows of Young Werther

- Werther as the Prototypical Romantic in Sorrows of Young Werther In Goethe's Sorrows of Young Werther, the protagonist's characteristics and ideas define him as the prototypical romantic personality.  The Romantic Movement emphasizes emotion over reason, an idea that Werther emulates throughout his life.  Werther loves pastoral settings; in nature, he feels most in touch with his emotions.  He rejects rationality and complexity with the sentiment that life is an adventure to be guided by intuition.  Werther's longing for his love, Lotte, is a paradigm of the Romantic concept of sehnsucht, one's constant yearning for something that they will never possess or know.  Werther find...   [tags: Sorrows Young Werther Essays]

My Understanding of the Meaning of Here by R.S. Thomas

- My Understanding of the Meaning of Here by R.S. Thomas After reading this poem through a few times, I can clearly see that there are many different interpretations that people can make. Some may come to a conclusion that the poem is about Jesus and his crucifixion, and others may believe it is about war or even from the viewpoint of an unborn child. However, I believe that all of these meanings are true in some parts of the poem, as for me, no one meaning fits perfectly as there are always some lines which do not fit under that specific meaning....   [tags: Papers]

Genteel People and Honest Hearts in Jane Austen's Emma

- Emma:  Genteel People and Honest Hearts             In Emma, Jane Austen gives us ‘only the surface of the lives of genteel people’?  Though not necessarily a commonly used term today, the meaning of ‘genteel people’ is easily assumed. Good birth and breeding are not necessarily the only ‘qualities’ of genteel people: simple generosity, courtesy and elegance can also apply, as well as marriage into the class. The majority of the characters in Emma to some extent expand this definition to provide exceptions to the rule or abuses of the title....   [tags: Austen Emma Essays]

Every character is, in some way inadequate. Graham is a mother's boy, whose dubious sexuality seems to have caused him severe mental stress. Susan, the vicar's wife, is an alcoholic woman, trapped in a loveless marriage, whose caustic intolerance of her husband's calling alienates her from the rest of the parish and forces her into behaviour which is damaging and dangerous....   [tags: Talking Heads]

Tolkien's Lord of the Rings as a Catholic Epic

- Tolkien's Lord of the Rings as a Catholic Epic It will be the contention of this paper that much of Tolkien's unique vision was directly shaped by recurring images in the Catholic culture which shaped JRRT, and which are not shared by non-Catholics generally. The expression of these images in Lord of the Rings will then concern us. To begin with, it must be remembered that Catholic culture and Catholic faith, while mutually supportive and symbiotic, are not the same thing. Mr. Walker Percy, in his Lost in the Cosmos, explored the difference, and pointed out that, culturally, Catholics in Cleveland are much more Protestant than Presbyterians in say, Taos, New Orleans, or the South of France...   [tags: Lord of the Rings Essays]

A Room With A View is about the social change occurring in England in the early 20th century, post Queen Victoria's death. Darwin had just published his book on the theory of evolution which was the catalyst for the introduction of more liberal and secular ideas into a conservative and religious England. In order to explain this process of change, Forster likens it to the Renaissance, which is why it is significant that A Room With A View begins in Italy....   [tags: English Literature]

Anthony Trollope's: An Eye for an Eye

But as the startlingly candid passage quoted above from the Autobiography reveals, Trollope's purposes in his fiction are not merely descriptive, but normative as well; he sets out both to show us "the way we live now" and to direct our attention to questions that are in the broadest sense...   [tags: Ethics Morals Anthony Trollope]

The Book Shakespeare's Wife about Ann Hathaway

- Few endeavors would appear as arduous and maddening to a responsible scholar as a biography of Shakespeare's wife, Ann Hathaway. We have almost no solid facts about Mrs. Shakespeare's life, and we know almost nothing about the Shakespeares' marriage. We know that the playwright could have brought his wife to live with him in London and did not, though we don't know how often he made the three-day trip back to Stratford. We know that in his will, he left his wife only his "second-best bed." From this slender evidence, along with liberal and dubious readings of the plays and sonnets, scholars have created a robust portrait of the Shakespeares' unhappy domestic life - a "marriage of evil auspi...   [tags: Germaine Greer]
