The short story “Araby” by James Joyce could very well be described as a deep poem written in prose. Read casually, it seems all but incomprehensible, nothing more than a series of depressing impressions and memories thrown together in a jumble and somehow meant to depict a childhood infatuation. Like the sweet milk
The Third Person-Point of View as used by Katherine Mansfield in Miss Brill Katherine Mansfields use of the third person, limited omniscient point of view in Miss Brill has the effect of letting the reader see the contrast between Miss Brills idea of her role in life and the reality of the small part she truly plays in world around her.

“Sweat” by Zora Neale Hurston is filled with symbolism ranging from images that are easily captured to things that require a little bit more insight. Religion has apparently played a major role in Hurston’s life, readily seen in “Sweat” with the references to a snake and Gethsemane. Symbolism plays a big part of this story and after analyzing the
“The Things They Carried,” by Tim O’Brien, contains many references to
“possessions of character.” Many things Lt. Cross carries were
carried by all, including: military equipment, stationery, photographs,
diseases, food, the land of Vietnam itself, their lives, and even more.
O’Brien highlights these along with spec
“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Gilman is sad story of the repression that women face in the days of late 1800’s as well as being representative of the turmoils that women face today. Gilman writes “The Yellow Wallpaper” from her own personal experiences of having to face the overwhelming fact that this is a male dominated society and sometimes
The Yellow Wallpaper
Many intellectual artists, who are widely acclaimed for their literary work, live in a world characterized by progressive insanity (Gilman 20). Charlotte Perkins Gilman was one such individual. A writer during the early 20th century, Gilman suffered from bouts of deep depression, due part to her dissatisfaction wit
“Wedding Band” by Alice Childress is a story of a love/hate interracial relationship between two lovers in the south. The play is set in South Carolina in 1918. “Wedding Band” truly captures the essence of the time and place in which the play was set in. That era (1915-1931) is one of the most significant in the history of this young nation. The

1984 is about a parallel world 35 years into the future, in which all nations have been combined into three major countries: Oceania, Eastasia, and Eurasia. London still exists, but it is now a part of Oceania, governed by an entity called the Party, headed by a dominant figure called Big Brother. The Party’s one goal is power; power over everybo

The lesson to be learned from George Orwell’s 1984 is that an “ideal” of having a
Utopian society will never really work. George Orwell may have written 1984, in order
to show us that every society has it’s ups and downs and that no matter how hard you
work to keep the society perfect there will always be flaws. In the book 1
Winston Smith is a low-ranking member of the ruling Party in London, in the nation of Oceania. Everywhere Winston goes, even his own home, the Party watches him through telescreens; everywhere he looks he sees the face of the Party’s seemingly omniscient leader, a figure known only as Big Brother. The Party controls everything in Oceania, even the
Could the world in 1984 ever really exist? This question haunted me throughout the whole book. And if I had to give my opinion, I’d would say it is definately most possible. Orwell portrays Oceania just realistically enough to convince readers that such a society has, in fact, existed and could exist again if peop
