Key points on Rebecca L. Walkowitz Rebecca L. Walkwoitz starts her article by giving us Coetzee’s “Diary of a Bad Year” as an example of what she calls Comparison Literature. Coetzee’s novel meets the criteria of comparison literature due to its circulation and production formally, typographically and thematically. Rebecca goes on to state clearly the difference between the field of national literature in which the scholars share the locus of production, and the field of comparative literature in which scholars share a structure of analysis. In Rebecca’s point of view, two requirements are necessary for comparison literature: First, new geographic lines are to be drawn for the literary works. Second, preserving the study within the historical context including the different editions and translations.
Leonard Bernstein Ms. Vowles ENG4UV-03 7 July 2014 Essay Analysis Upon reading the essay, I believe that the overall essay was very effective. The introduction of the essay was strong, and had an interesting “hook”. By asking the reader a rhetorical question, the author was able to lead into his main idea. The examples the author used were effective; Dan Brown and Stephen King have an international following for their mystery novels. However, I felt that it was irrelevant when the author said, “Although many female writers claim to be the ‘Queen of Crime Fiction”…” I believe this phrase could be eliminated.
This is evidenced on page 123 with Tom wanting to make an inquiry directed at Gatsby and continues through to when the characters leave the Hotel on page 129. At this time Tom mentions his realization of the affair Gatsby and his wife Daisy have been having as well as the truth behind Gatsby’s false wealth through his drug-stores (p123-124, 127-128). The dispute becomes back and forth and is mostly between Tom and Gatsby with a few interjections by Daisy. Though New York was, at first, seemingly wondrous, it becomes tarnished with the reality that
She also speaks as a reader, someone who loves books, especially fiction, and learns from them; the section on her reading of King Lear is particularly germane to this persona (paras. 30 and 31). By the last few paragraphs, she speaks as an informed citizen, perhaps even a social critic, as she makes the case for the long-term impact of commercialism and commodification of literature on our culture. 2. Prose's opening paragraph includes such words as appalled, dismal, and dreariness - all with negative connotations.
Instead of craving flesh, it will now gather fruit and living in society with others of its kind. I gave it intelligence .Reason”. Although Megan Shepherd’s book, The Madman’s Daughter, is frequently read simply as "Young Adult Novel" describing the book as a problem novel or coming-of-age novel, it is mainly proven in the book to be a Gothic Thriller. In the Literary analysis of The Madman’s Daughter, I am going to discuss two techniques and discuss how they relate to the thesis: One is the setting of The Madman’s Daughter. There are two different settings in The Madman’s Daughter; one is the eerie College of Medical Research, with its operating theater and storage spaces where they kept the things of nightmares (page 2).
He brings examples from the novel to prove that some of the statements and major themes that Hawthorne puts out are actually ranging towards more feminist than not.

In crime writing, composers not only scrutinise justice but also experiment with textual forms and features in response to different contexts. Evaluate this statement with reference to two prescribed texts and two texts of your own. According to Fiske, genre’s ‘embody the crucial ideological concerns of the time in which they are popular.’ Throughout our study of crime fiction it is incontestable that each text, despite the context in which they are composed, focus on the overriding theme of truth and justice and how this is achieved – a popular concern in our time. Michael Ondaatje’s revisionist crime novel, Anil’s Ghost is a reflection of its late 20th century context of war torn Sri Lanka where through its subversion of structure and resolution justice is never administered, despite what the truth may be. Secondly, Stoppard’s 1968 ‘Absurd’ and Post-modern Real Inspector Hound focuses on iconoclasm, the questioning of identity and the abandonment of realism.
‘Every age manipulates an established genre in its own ways and for its own purposes’ Write an essay in which you evaluate the extent to which this is true in TWO prescribed texts AND at least TWO texts of your choosing. The famous literary theorist Jonathan Culler once defined genre as a “style or category” of painting, novel or film that is governed by a particular set of “conventions and expectations”. In literature, crime fiction is a genre in which the cause of a mysterious happening, often a crime, is gradually revealed by a hero or heroine. This is usually accomplished through a combination of intelligence or ingenuity, or at times just sheer luck. Through the employment of various characteristics such as a ‘lone sleuth’, a ‘detailed and plausible setting’, and ‘crimes to be solved’, it has allowed the genre to explore universal themes of corruption, justice, the search for ‘truth, and the antithetical concepts of order and disorder.
