The study of transformations reveals why certain texts are valued. Texts from the past have been adapted to contemporary situations to explore how such texts deal with key issues and present new ways of thinking or evaluating society. While the older text may seem dated on the surface, the new text shows how the same values are still relevant in a modern context. ‘Emma’, an early 19thC English novel written by Jane Austen, and ‘Clueless’ a late 20th C American film directed by Amy Heckerling, on the surface look worlds apart, in fact they are 184 years apart, but the inspiration for both came from similar issues. Both texts are essentially about human relationships and their complications.
In Raymond Carver’s I Could See the Smallest Things, we are presented the world, relationships, and thoughts through Nancy’s perspective—literally, in her shoes. Rather than having an unknown narrator illuminate the details of the story, we live through Nancy. Carver’s deliberate writing style — first person, symbolism, and rather straightforward short sentences, which not only create the main character’s tense, and anxious appearance, but bring to life vulnerability, the fear of unknown, and loss — are what illuminate the theme of loneliness. From the very first sentence—“I was in bed when I heard the gate”—we are already beginning to be exposed to the main character’s unnecessarily extreme observance of her surroundings. Carver’s writing style is very straight to the point, “I listened carefully.
We can, (and are), taking the subject into that dream, and letting him fill it with his subconscious. While we're in there, we don't want them to realize they are dreaming. Our dreams are real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realize things were strange. But all the textures of real life – the stone, the fabric, cars, people: Your mind can't create all this.
This makes the text more enjoyable to read and keeps you in suspense. The Narrative structure of this novel is rather uniform. Each event is told in Chronological order, though there are flashbacks, these are few and there is a lot inbetween. Each flashback is very important, and provides an insight to the lead character’s old life, which makes you realise what made him like he is now. “Montmorency” is set in the 1800’s and 1900’s, in Victorian London around Covent gardens and the surrounding area, including Great Ormond street hospital, Also St pauls cathedral and Whitehall.
Her art pertains to surrealism, and relates to fantasy, horror, female sexuality, and the subconscious. Gaskell’s work fixates in the mind somewhere between our dreams and our child-hood memories. Although each of her photo series contains a reoccurring story, she confuses the viewer by simultaneously taking the photographs. The narrative events resemble a journey without a beginning or end, which is what sparks many interpretations. Unlike many photographers, Gaskell’s work is a metaphor for something else and instead illustrates the manipulation, and dark side of adolescent girls by using ongoing themes of identity, sexuality, and curiosity.
He looks like a Victor:” (P.1, l.6). It is all subjective. She describes the other characters in the story, so from her point of view we create a picture of our own, but Evie’s opinions affect us. That makes the story more reliable because we can actually hear what the main character thinks. There are many details in the short story, which make the text come alive: “The noise and rush of labour movement, when the prisoners are shunted off to take part in purposeful activity, is still an affront to her senses with its banging of gates and scraping of keys in locks and the clatter of each
Perhaps these colors and designs have repeated themselves enough times in society for us to easily associate these small characteristics to the product, but they all share one common component: it's the design, not the words, that speak to the audience. Professor Joyce Macario stated in her lecture, “Good design combines aesthetics with pragmatism in a seamless blend that produces an intended effect.” This effect can sometimes be seen through complex design and other times it can be seen through just the colors and font style used. Either way, every graphic design has a message, and does more than visually appeal to its audience; rather, the art sends us a sign or a signal that sometimes has a more lasting impact in our mind than words do. By analyzing certain examples, this argument highlights the effects of two main principles of graphic design –contrasting colors and artistic symbolism –and demonstrate how together they produce a message. Professor Macario discussed the importance of using complimentary colors in graphic designs.
Memory provides materials to adapt or modify in terms of various aspects, all of which happen through language. Again, like reasoning, imagination can happen pictorially without language depending on individual ability but it is in the cognition of the mind to rely on the messages sent through sensory organs. Also, if a person knows about a certain object by being told of it but has not directly seen it, it will be difficult to visually imagine it as part of any context. However, if the person has seen an object similar to the one being told, that visual would be used in the imagination process. Hence, imagination is seen as adapting or modifying materials of past knowledge into that of a new standard.
( Connor 74), which means that the main point of these stories are moments of explanation. After such moment, the story and is closed. Postmodernism actually deals with similar aspects but does it in a different manner. For Postmodernists chaos is not something that needs to be explained. It is the main
And as long as I maintain that mindset, who’s to say that it’s wrong for me to dream? Dream. There are people who, like me, have a solid plan for everything, and there are those who refuse to do so, and there are some who are already living theirs without realizing it. The dreams we see at night are a great effect of our real life dreams. They’re symbolic, you see every psychologist’s sworn enemy.
