Slide 1: Title slide The focus of my IOP will be on the short story ‘Chekov and Zulu’ from the anthology ‘East, West’ written by Salman Rushdie. My title will address “How the significance of the author’s approach to writing impacts readers’ understanding of the theme of Westernization presented in ‘Chekov and Zulu’”. Slide 2: Overview My essay will first provide evidence that ‘Chekov and Zulu’ is in fact a text typical of Rushdie, then focus on two aspects of Rushdie’s approach to writing most relevant to the given story, following which I will relate how knowledge of these aspects of Rushdie’s background as a writer will influence and even enhance our reading of the text. To begin with, it is important to establish if ‘Chekov and Zulu’ is characteristic of the author’s style and focus of writing, since my entire presentation hinges on the assumption that ‘Chekov and Zulu’ is in accordance with Rushdie’s usual style of writing, and that therefore knowledge of his writing preferences would allow for greater insights in reading the text. Slide 3: Contextual Knowledge As an author, much of Rushdie’s early fiction is set on the Indian subcontinent, and ‘Chekov and Zulu’ is in keeping with this tradition.
Winston embodies the values of a civilized society: democracy, peace, freedom, love, and decency. Winston represents the struggle between good and bad forces, and there is no mistaking where the lines are drawn.

In part two of 1984 we closely read about Winston’s love affair with Julia which starts and then ends. Now, in part three of the book this is where he gets punished for his actions and the process of turning him “sane” begins.
