'Most novels are written to reflect real events in real worlds'. Discuss the features that make a novel you have studied seem realistic (or unrealistic), and explain why realism is appropriate (or inappropriate) to the novel's main themes Many novels reflect true events in the world in some way and are written to feel realistic to the reader. This is to make the ideas in the novel easier to take on board and more relevant to the reader's actual lives. One such novel is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. This novel uses the emotions of the narrator, the actions and events in the story and the way that they connect with and clearly stem from society at the time that the novel was written, to make the novel easy to relate to for a reader and allows them to take on board the lessons and themes of The Handmaid's Tale in a more personal and meaningful way.
The bonds sound therefore artificial and limited. Furthermore, besides the superficial part, some people create themselves virtual community to flee the real life.

Which again goes back to the story, Boaz could have not given Ruth any of his crops so he could sell them and become richer.

Taking this into account, we can conclude that there is in fact no place for real men in the Business World. Willy Loman proceeds to choose a different life from his brother and father by opting for the Business World as opposed to the Green World. He does this in order to prove that he is a man who can create his own path to success, however the tragedy of Willy’s dream is that you cannot be independent in the Business World. We soon come to realise that Willy is no exception to this as he describes his wife Linda as his ‘foundation and his support’; without her assistance the Business World would have indirectly killed him. One way in which Linda holds up and encourages her husband is by telling him that things will work out for the better.
