In her opinion, the novel as a whole showed an unwholesome "coarseness of language and laxity of tone." Another significant reason about this extract is the structure. The structure plays a key role in determining what Jane and Mr Rochester’s relationship has developed into at this stage. In this specific extract, Mr
Within “The Bloody Chamber” Carter demonstrates how her characters are a form of exploration into base human instincts but also explores the idea of their subconscious desires playing a major part in the development of the story. Subconscious desires are the desires of the characters they often don’t voice; in Carter’s tale these are heavily sexual. On the other hand much of Carter’s tale is a reflection of basic human nature and instinct and how that can affect the way men and women interact. The concept of Carter exploring base instincts within “The Bloody Chamber” is mainly apparent through her use of language to describe her main characters. The Marquis’ description is particularly animalistic; Carter uses phrases like “(his) dark mane” to describe his hair.
Specifically, Wilde's problem with aestheticism is that, following Pater, the self cultivates and expresses itself through both physical and intellectual experiences, and that gives rise to the danger that either the physical or intellectual experience will be valued at the expense of the other. Aestheticism allows individuals to transcend the Philistinism within their own culture, but it also narrows the cultural experiences open to them. In particular, aestheticism runs the risk of robbing sexual desire of its power by attempting to transform all walks of experience into contemplative acts. Salome in fact extends this critique of aestheticism. Like Dorian, Salome is trapped in her persona--an aestheticized image of herself that she projects to the public--as an object of desire.
In the end resolution is needed to establish some sort of common ground, but this would be the most difficult of the stages in a conflict to be pursued. When conflict arises, truth often becomes a matter of perception rather than reality. This is evident in the book “The Quiet American” by Graham Greene where it shows the love triangle between the main characters. The conflict here is between Pyle and Fowler where they fight over Phuong. Pyle’s perception is that he is confident Phuong will go for him but in reality she picks Fowler.
Second, this hesitation may also be experienced by a character; thus the reader's role is so to speak entrusted to a character, and at the same time the hesitation is represented, it becomes one of the themes of the work--in the case of naive reading, the actual reader identifies himself with the character. Third, the reader must adopt a certain attitude with regard to the text: he will reject allegorical as well as "poetic" interpretations (p. 33)." Todorov distinguishes the fantastic from two other modes, the uncanny and the marvelous. While these modes have some of the ambiguity of the fantastic, they ultimately offer a resolution governed by natural laws (the uncanny) or the supernatural
It is indubitable, that when faced with adversity, some are innately more inclined to having a desire to overcome the obstacle, whereas others become overwhelmingly repressed by the circumstances and fail to overcome them. In his story “The Cellist of Sarajevo”, Steven Galloway depicts characters who combat their problems in various ways. One of the characters being Arrow, who is desperately lost in her vows of seeking vengeance and has gone through a transformation, yet she eventually manages to find her true identity. Through the use of the characters in his play, the author proves to us that adversity reveals and moulds an individual’s character and identity. However, the effect of adversity depends on the individual being tested, and their willingness to overcome the obstacles.
“In what Context do Emotion and Reason Conflict?” Knowledge can not only be gained by one way of knowing, because not only that answer would be biased, it may as well be not true, this simply is because there exist certain conditions in which one view or perspective of the case is not enough. Such situations are mostly decision making. Now the question is, whether an individual would choose a more reasonable choice that would benefit the most, or choose a more comfortable choice that is a satisfaction to the hearts content. Emotion and Reasoning are both considered as ways of knowing, however like any other ways of knowing they cannot exist alone and therefore they do have flaws. These flaws are usually associated with the fact that they are unable to fulfil the need to gain the answer since they may be biased, however even when these two ways of knowing are put together, they may contradict each other, or do not share the same view on the same exact case, this is what is considered as the conflict.
By this, the superego and the id are balanced and form the character's identity, an integrated self. Another very important and appropriate part for a psychoanalytic interpretation of 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' is the return of the repressed that Freud describes in his theory of psychoanalysis. Society, its norms and taboos suppress the antisocial individual desires which nevertheless exist in the subconscious. Stevenson's novel 'is one of the most famous literary expressions of the uncanny' (Meyer 138). That means something that should have stayed unknown but still appears is revealed by the return of the repressed.
Charisma appears to be a complex phenomenon to define. Davidzhar (1991) suggests that it is an aspect of personality which makes the individual irresistible to others, in terms of their ability to persuade and empower others. However, other authors, such as Romano (1996) and Harvey (2000) highlight the intangible nature of charisma and emphasise the frustrating point that individuals know charisma if they see it, but find it difficult to define. It appears problematic, therefore, to identify exactly how charisma can become an integral part of developing transformational leadership in nursing, if it is a quality which, in itself, is difficult to define. For example, Smith (2001) maintains that transformational leadership uses a combination of charisma and interpersonal skills to enable achievement.
In the novels, women are treated like second class citizens when compared to men and are expected to be content with this Victorian idea of patriarchal domination. In Jane Eyre, Jane develops throughout the novel moving from Thornfield to Gateshead, to Lowood and to Marsh End. Each location challenges her identity and her integrity as she desperately tries to maintain her dignity with the different conflicts she is confronted with. The three main male characters in the novel are Edward Rochester, Mr.Brocklehurst and St. John Rivers. Each male, in their own way, continuously get in her way of trying to achieve equality by oppressing her into a submissive position.
