The prime archetype symbol, Hawkeye, is utilized the most in illustrating these figures. Hawkeye’s views are complex, in the fact, that he reinforces interracial friendships among men, but objects to interracial aspirations among men and women. In addition, this presents the reader with Cooper’s conception of interracial relationships to be strenuous and condemned. Hawkeye represents the primary topic and conflict of the novel. However, he can also be illustrated through representative devices that not only enhance the readers understanding of him, but the novel’s overall issue.
In Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and the film Finding Neverland, companionship plays a key role in how each story develops. Many companions, whether positively or, at times, negatively, affect each other and help to combat their pressing problems. Of all of these sets of companions, there are but a select few that have the greatest impact on one another. First, in Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck’s companions of both Jim and the King and the Duke allow Huck to conquer the societal beliefs of the time. Next, in Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Oskar’s companions of both Mr. Black and his grandfather aid in the coping, and eventual release, of Oskar’s grief caused by the death of his father.
In the crucible, John Proctor from the outset appears to be a hardworking, independent-thinking man. However, he is haunted “by the judge that sits in his heart” which reminds him of his past affair with Abigail. When Abigail maliciously pursues the townspeople and his wife, he decides that in order to rescue those from the court he must admit to the whole town his sins. This great test of honesty shows how a conflict can precipitate great changes in character. The audience is shown that fundamentally, John Proctor is an honest man.
We see the women and children maintain their composure, especially under adversity, as they are the ones who stand up for their beliefs. The men are usually the ones who turn a blind eye to the situation at hand, displaying greater character weakness and portraying corrupt morals through their actions. It is David who begins to understand the complexities of human relationships and changes his opinion of the men by seeing the relative strengths and weaknesses unfold. David Hayden is the narrator throughout the novel “Montana 1948” and could also be described as the dominant character. From beginning to end, the reader acquires an understanding of how David grows from an innocent child into a man due to the events that take place.
In Thomas Hardy’s “The Mayor of Casterbridge”, Michael Henchard’s character is exposed through his interactions with the three most important women in the novel. Susan, Elizabeth-Jane and Lucetta each bring a quantum of understanding to the “man of character” as each woman brings out different aspects of his personality. We see his vengeful wrath with Lucetta, his loneliness through Elizabeth-Jane as well his uncommon moral courage with Susan. They bring out the best and worst in Michael Henchard and give the reader a clearer view of who he is and to what lengths the depth of his emotion bring him. The first image of the novel is of Michael Henchard walking with his wife and child.
Another commonality between Pere Goriot and The Canterbury Tales is that Balzac manipulates the description of the physical appearance and dress of the characters to hint to the reader about their personality as well as to inject his own opinion of them. For example, when Vautrin is introduced Balzac describes him as a “stern judge, his glance seemed to pierce to the bottom of every issue, every conscience, every emotion” and “his debtors would sooner have died than not repay him.” Here, the reader can immediately recognize Vautrin as being the possible villain in the novel and could also make an appropriate assumption that Balzac, the writer, didn’t really like Vautrin as a character. Furthermore, the juxtaposition between the physical description of Eugene and his actions throughout the novel, allows the reader to come to certain
This extract is taken from C.S Lewis’s novel “Perelandra” highlights ones internal struggle between their sanity and possible madness. Through the usage of narration and language (1st person) as well as his comforting and easing diction, Lewis creates a vast bond between his readers and the character, furthering the vast understanding of the characters situation during, what can be seen, his rampage. Lewis’s explicit imagery furthers the reader’s perception of the character and his fears of what, we never actually find out to be. As seen in the first paragraph of his work, Lewis begins “At last I came to the crossroads by the little Wesleyan chapel where I had to turn to the left under the beech trees” directly providing a setting for the extract, through the use of imagery and precise directions of this setting, Lewis allows us to associate and be drawn into this highlighted scene literally from the first line. Lewis then goes on to explain the protagonist’s friend (A guess however not 100% proved due to the limited detailed text provided), Ransom, furthering the development of the setting.
Death of a Salesman Essay In Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, there are a number of ideas conveyed to the reader/audience through the relationship between Willy and Biff. The most prominent theme shown is that it is everyone’s (and particularly the parents’) personal responsibility to distinguish between reality and illusions in their lives. The consistent and repetitive use of this motif throughout the work by Miller, displays how vital he finds this theme to be in society, and uses Willy and Biff’s characters to depict his view on this. To Miller, Willy Loman’s surname had a very distinct and specific meaning (derived from a Fritz Lang film The Testament of Dr. Mabuse) which was translated as - a terror-stricken man calling into the void for help that will never come. During this play, one of the main forms of this void is that of an idealised American Dream, which is simply not universally attainable.
Between both authors it is debatable whether which of these authors has more effectively relayed their messages ORWELL * Both composers represent the immense fears and anxieties of their respective times within their texts through a variety of ways, * Orwell uses a diverse and signature range of language techniques, and symbols to represent his vital message of warning to the audience of the dangers of totalitarian governments/ regimes and the perversion within communist and fascist parties. * Orwell’s lucid writing style is his most powerful tool in revealing his messages to the audience, his employment of striking and vivid language and his organisation of powerful adjectives, verbs and adverbs is what enable him to draw in the audience and present the brutal and oppressed world of Oceania. His clearly expressed and arranged writing style ensures that there is no ambiguity in the reception of his message. This lucid writing style can be seen through the quote “nothing was your own except the few cubic metres inside your skull. * Orwell constantly uses the technique of allusions throughout the novel to comment and communicate his ideals as well, he uses the technique to ensure that the audience follow his own point of view and
