The first, represented by Homer Baron, the North, and the new generation, consists of living in a rootless present and denying the past. The second that of the old generation consists of clinging to the past and resisting or even denying change (Vartany,189) . The story is thus a criticism of two opposing views of time, one corresponding to the South and the other to the North. There are, we are told, two views of time: (1) the world of the present, viewing time as a mechanical progression in which the past is a diminishing road, never to be encountered again; (2) the world of tradition, viewing the past as a huge meadow which no winter ever quite touches, divided from (us) now by the narrow bottleneck of the most recent decade of years. The first is the view of Homer Baron and the modern generation in Jefferson (Vartany, 190).
The Balanced Beowulf In J.R.R. Tolkien’s essay, “Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics”, he describes the epic poem Beowulf, as a balance between ends and beginnings. He says that Beowulf establishes a contrast of rising and setting, youth and age, and first achievement and final death. All of these paradoxes can be found in several places throughout the poem. For example, the poem illustrates the rise and fall of Herot, and the difference between Beowulf, the protagonist, in his youth and in his later life.
The text “Harvey’s Dream” by Stephen King concerns several conflicts such as the conflict between the man and the woman (Harvey and his wife) and the main conflict of the man and the destiny. The message revealed is that even if a person gets some premonition (this role is played by the dream) he can guess what it means only when something wicked begins to happen, and no matter how a person tries he can never outwit the fate. The short story “Harvey’s Dream” is a good example of a suspense story, where the mounting suspense is exposed through the change of emotions of the main character (Janet), the contrastive description of a sunny Saturday morning and the retelling of the dream by Harvey. The story can be divided into three major parts.
