A Tale, of A Tale of Two Cities Charles Dickens was one of the greatest authors of his time, and his work is still enjoyed today. A Tale of Two Cities is the book I chose to read, and with well over 200 million copies sold, it ranks among the most famous works in the history of fictional literature. Charles Dickens wrote this book, to help portray how horrible the feudal system was and the laws by which the king let his people live. Dickens wrote this story during the era of the American Revolution as well as the French Revolution, taking more towards the American Revolution seeing that it only has a year into the French Revolution. Dickens does have a bias in A Tale of Two Cities, to be more precise he had an insular and unhistorical bias.
The movie has some very interesting narrative elements. The plot is about a man who is wrongly convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover. He is sentenced to serve out a life sentence at Shawshank Prison. The movie is set during the years of 1947-1966 and follows his experiences once he arrives at the prison.

‘Elizabethan prose fiction is thoroughly and (with the exception of Nashes’ Unfortunate Traveller) deservedly dead.’ John Carey What redeeming features can The Unfortunate Traveller, in your view, be said to have for the 21st Century reader. The Elizabethan era was the most influential period on early modern literature. It was the foundation of the genre of the novel, and the beginning of the themes and various modes of writing. The printing press had been established only a century earlier and already there were great works of fiction, playwrights, and pamphlets travelling around the world. I therefore disagree with the stimulus statement as there are many works of Elizabethan prose fiction which are popular to date, for example Thomas Deloney's ‘Thomas of Reading’ and ‘Jack of Newbury’ and John Lyly’s ‘Euphues’.

Theme of “Imperialism” In “A Passage to India” It's a useful comment, from Martin Green, that "One could read all the works of the Great Tradition, and never know that England had an empire" - the canonical English texts deal, he comments, with "women and marriage, personal relations, and alternatives to politics", but the financial source of the wealth which lubricates these personal and social relationships is left generally unspoken of. Forster's work A Passage to India faces that silence head on, raising issues of empire and race in ways which had not been attempted earlier. A Passage to India by common consent regarded as Forster’s greatest novel, can be read simultaneously as a valuable critique of British rule in India, a profound statement about the human condition and an artistic masterpiece. A passage to India is a novel which deals largely with the political, economic and social takeover of India by the British Crown. The novel deals widely with colonialism and more specifically, imperialism.
The full title is typically eighteenth century: The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews, and of His Friend Mr. Abraham Adams, Written in Imitation of the Manner of Cervantes, Author of Don Quixote. The novel was published anonymously in 1742 and did not achieve the immediate acclaim that Pamela had, though a new edition came six months later. Fielding was not part of the literary mainstream, a situation true generally of the other early novelists. Individuals “of taste and intellect” liked Fielding’s book, finding Joseph Andrews truer, more real, “not a tissue of silly make-believe.” Fielding—and Richardson—thus validated this new form of fiction. Joseph Andrews could be called a picaresque novel in structure, for its plotline is similar to the one-line structure of picaresque fiction, much like Miguel de Cervantes’s Don Quixote de la Mancha (1605, 1615), Fielding’s mentor’s book.
