Marco Polo left his home in Venice in 1254 when he was seventeen years old to accompany his father and uncle on a journey to the Far East.  In the over twenty years that elapsed from the time of his departure to the time he returned home, Marco Polo traveled extensively throughout the Middle Kingdom, South East Asia, and the House of Islam.

Ibn Battuta, however, was a little different from Marco Polo.

It is a well-established notion that references to other texts add to the meaning of the work in question.

The boy's views are different from the old man’s views, so you would not believe the old man raised the boy. The story takes place in a time after war. The boy and the old man live in the ruins of a once big city. The fact that it is a big city can be interpreted from the text, “… turned into a busy boulevard lined with brave new facades.”, as boulevards are large streets that you would often find in big cities. The world seems post-apocalyptic, as there are many ruins, which have not been rebuild in the seven years of peace.

I think The Scarlett Letter is phenomenal and I greatly enjoy Hawthorne’s short stories. So when it came to choosing books for the RIP IV challenge, I remembered The House of the Seven Gables sitting on my bookshelf and though perfect!

In order to effectively enhance the quality of the story, the author uses dramatic irony. This literary device keeps the readers' interest on the story by creating a contrast between the character's present situation and the action that will unfold. It heightens the intensity as it propels a forward motion in the story and by doing this, the plot of the story, is made more interesting.

A modern novel’s purpose is to expose social injustices instead of indoctrinating readers with rose-tinted views of society. In the Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald employs the innovative features of a modernist novel such as an unreliable narrator, symbolism, non-linear narrative structure, a retrospective viewpoint, ambivalence and an amalgamation of genres. The Great Gatsby’s narrator is the character of Nick Carraway who gives a profound moral insight throughout the novel and the author himself, Scott Fitzgerald identifies himself with this character, claiming Nick is very like his mature self while romantic Jay Gatsby is his naïve younger self. Nick likes to think that in consequence of his his upbringing in the traditional West of America he is “inclined to reserve all judgements” however it becomes very clear that Nick is an unreliable narrator due to his insistent hypocrisy throughout the narrative. Firstly Nick has a dual vision of Gatsby as a character, unable to maintain a. impartial view of him as his smile of “eternal reassurance” clouds his judgement.
