The narrow beam of light that was cast upon the ground split the two sides of the darkened room. Even though jack squinted he could not identify the faint object positioned on the opposite side. His memory was blunted by piercing fuzz but his senses were still as sharp as the knife that he could not find. He patted his legs frantically until he felt the rib of

Right from the start, Jack Worthing is depicted as the ingénue character of this novel. This is of course a satire of the ideal Victorian man. The classic Victorian man was socially confident, had a personal presence, and was almost certainly the dominating voice in a conversation with a lady. However, Oscar Wilde creates Jack as the ingénue

    On the subject of Lord of The Flies, K. Olsen says “The boys play at controlling sea creatures and each other, and the naval officer who lands on the island to rescue the boys at first interprets their hunt for Ralph as an ordinary children’s game.

Is the whole thing a game or not, the natural behavior of humankind (including children) or an imitation of the adult world?...The conch is not a symbol of authority

In their writings of the mid-1950s, Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac describe an America recently converted to the religion of the T.V. Ginsberg witnesses and records big blue Buicks in driveways of identical box houses. With Walt Whitman he watches whole families peruse the peaches in late-night supermarkets

However, by mentioning Gauguin, Roth gives us a view of man's ideal relationship to nature very similar to the one seen in the story of

    Parallels in On the Road and Easy Rider Released more than a decade apart, Kerouac's On the Road and Dennis Hopper's Easy Rider are replete with parallels. Both depict characters whose beliefs are not quite uniform with those of society; in both cases these characters set out in search of "kicks" but become part of something larger along the way. More importantly, these two texts each comment insightfully on the culture of their respective times. But all these similarities become superficial
