...hundred years ago. I don’t really know what it’s about. Jessie will read it through and tell me.” “I didn’t know you even read,” he said to her. “Just what do you mean by that, James Wyndham? Do you think I’m ignorant?” “I’ve never seen you with a book before. I’ve never seen you in here before.” “The same is true of you. Now, what are you doing here, James? I would have thought that all you did was ride your acres, break colts, and give orders to all your stable lads.” Since he’d thought the same thing about her, he didn’t say what he would have liked to. “I’ve frequented Compton’s bookshop since I was a boy. He introduced me to French novels and plays.” Mr. Fielding was noted for the immense collection of French works he had in his shop, but Jessie, not knowing a single utterance in French, had never really paid much attention. She’d read every novel he had until just recently when he’d begun introducing her to diaries. They were, she had to admit, rather interesting, but thin on plot. There were no handsome gentlemen to sweep a girl off her feet. Oh yes, she adored lots of plot. “You are a horse breeder and racer, James. You couldn’t possibly speak French.” “Well, I do. In fact, I’ve spent a good deal of time in France.” He eyed her up and down. “You’re wearing a gown. Where the devil did you get it?

...A novel is a long prose narrative that describes fictional characters and events, usually in the form of a sequential story. The genre has historical roots in antiquity and the fields ofmedieval and early modern romance and in the tradition of the novella. The latter, an Italian word used to describe short stories, supplied the present generic English term in the 18th century. Further definition of the genre is historically difficult. The construction of the narrative, theplot, the relation to reality, the characterization, and the use of language are usually discussed to show a novel's artistic merits. Most of these requirements were introduced to literary prose in the 16th and 17th centuries, in order to give fiction a justification outside the field of factual history. ------------------------------------------------- Definition[edit] Gerard ter Borch, young man reading a book c.1680, the format is that of a French period novel. | Madame de Pompadourspending her afternoon with a book, 1756 – religious and scientific reading has a differenticonography. | The fictional narrative, the novel's distinct "literary" prose, specific media requirements (the use of paper and print), a characteristic subject matter that creates intimacy, and length can be seen as features that developed with the Western (and modern) market of fiction.

...[Author’s Name] [Instructor’s Name] [Course Title] Date Georges Bataille George Bataille is a French librarian and writer whose essays, novels, and poetry expressed his fascination with eroticism, mysticism, and the irrational. He viewed excess as a way to gain personal sovereignty. After training as an archivist at the school of paleography known as the Ecole des Chartes (School of Charters) in Paris, he worked as a librarian and medieval specialist at the Bibliotheque National in Paris until 1942. In 1951 he became keeper of the Orleans library. He also edited scholarly journals and in 1946 founded an influential literary review, Critique, which he edited until his death. George Bataille’s “Theory of Religion” is an attempt to sum up religion in as succinct a manner as possible. To be all things to all religions, the book is very vague and difficult to understand. Bataille created a chart or table to explain what he was doing and to give body to the work. ALAS! The chart is not in the book, lost to time. Thus, as it exists, Bataille’s book is a glimpse into the inner workings of a genius mind. It is a colorful attempt to understand “religion,” whatever that is. Further, it is an off-the beaten path romp through the daisies of the study of religion, sweet flowers that often remain unromped. Theory of Religion brings to philosophy what Bataille’s earlier book, The Accursed Share, brought to anthropology and history; namely, an analysis based on notions......

A Clockwork Orange Analyse (Novel)

...A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess I chose the novel A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess because I have watched the movie and I really wanted to read the book. The blurb also shows a dark and interesting book “A Clockwork Orange is the shocking seminal novel that spawned one of the most notorious films ever made...Alex and his thrill-seeking gang indulge in violence...rape and drugs”. The first page already suggests that Alex is a troubled leader of his gang sitting in the milk bar drinking a glass of milk which is laced with illegal drugs, making plans for the evening. I predicted A Clockwork Orange would be an easy going, interesting novel that hopefully I could relate to. I was particularly interested how the characters were introduced. Alex and his droogs (friends), Dim, Pete and Georgie as sitting in the Korova Milk Bar, a place that serves milk injected with illegal drugs like stimulants, trying to decide what to do for the night. Alex and his droogs are young, with lots of money and very well dressed, “Waisty Jackets without lapels...with big built up shoulders...off white cravats which looked like whipped-up kartoffel or spud...hair not too long...and big flip horrowshow boots for kicking”. The Author also describes the other patrons surrounding the bar, with a man hallucinating on the milk next to the boys and young girls in tight bright dresses on the other side of the bar. These people and the surroundings are different to what would experience today in......

...A novel is a long narrative, normally in prose, which describes fictional characters and events, usually in the form of a sequential story. While Ian Watt in The Rise of the Novel (1957) suggests that the novel came into being in the early 18th century, the genre has also been described as "a continuous and comprehensive history of about two thousand years",[1] with historical roots in Classical Greece and Rome, medieval, early modern romance, and in the tradition of the novella. The latter, an Italian word used to describe short stories, supplied the present generic English term in the 18th century. Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote, is frequently cited as the first significant European novelist of the modern era; the first part of Don Quixote was published in 1605.[2] While a more precise definition of the genre is difficult, the main elements that critics discuss are: how the narrative, and especially the plot, is constructed, the themes, settings, and characterization, how language is used, and the way that plot, character, and setting relate to reality. The romance is a related long prose narrative. Walter Scott defined it as "a fictitious narrative in prose or verse; the interest of which turns upon marvellous and uncommon incidents", whereas in the novel "the events are accommodated to the ordinary train of human events and the modern state of society".[3] However, many romances, including the historical romances of Scott,[4] Emily Brontë's Wuthering......

...Generelt om analyse og fortolkning af forskellige litterære tekstgenrer Ligesom man bliver dygtigere til at lave mad, jo mere man gør det, bliver man også dygtigere til at analysere og fortolke tekster, jo mere man prøver det. Der er ikke en bedre vej til at blive en god tekstanalytiker og -fortolker end træning. Men ligesom man kan få hjælp fra en opskrift, når man laver mad, kan det også være ganske nyttigt at få hjælp fra en analyse- og fortolkningsmodel, når man skal analysere og fortolke en tekst. Den kan betyde, at man får øje på ting i teksten, man ikke ved første øjekast var opmærksom på, den kan systematisere ens iagttagelser, og den kan skærpe blikket for de mange forskellige dele, tekster i virkeligheden består af. Men man skal selvfølgelig ikke følge en analyse- og fortolkningsmodel punkt for punkt og fra A til Å, hver eneste gang man står overfor en tekst. Analyse- og fortolkningsprocessen må ske på baggrund af nogle valg. Den må have et fokus. Den må afstemmes efter den tekst, der skal analyseres og fortolkes. Efter den første gennemlæsning af en tekst har man som regel allerede en intuitiv fornemmelse af, at der er bestemte ting i teksten, der er vigtigere at se på end andre, og at nogle af analyse- og fortolkningsmodellens punkter er særligt oplagte at gå i dybden med. Men evnen til afstemme analysen og udvælge, hvad der er væsentligt at se på, er samtidig en evne, der skal udvikles i dansktimerne gennem mødet med mange forskellige tekster. Som regel vil......

...society? There is many different definitions of this word. Every people have his or her own definition depending on who or where he or she are from. Almost every definition is about a society with many different cultures. This society is pretty much the definition of a modern society. This society is full of people from all around the world and they have all brought a culture with them to the new country they are entering. Many of the new people have a dream of a society where they can live side by side with all the other citizens. While they are dreaming of this, they also have an idea of a place where all the different cultures can live equally. The biggest theme in the extract of Monica Ali’s “Brick Lane”, is multiculturalism. The novel “Brick Lane” is also about the clash between East and West. In England and especially London, there are a lot of immigrant from all around the world.

...NOVELS What is strange is that this prejudice against novel reading has persisted, to some extent, even in the modern world including India which has borrowed the novel form from the West. Students, particularly, are not encouraged to read novels. Parents and teachers seem to think that youngsters read fiction mainly to kill time, are likely to get addicted to it as to a drug, and derive from it a pleasure which makes them reluctant to apply themselves to serious study. It must be admitted that this prejudice is justified, as far as bad novels are concerned. Today the railway book stalls and circulating libraries are flooded with detective novels, crime fiction and thrillers. The appeal of the majority of such novels is based on plot, usually absurd and improbable, and the excitement of the lower human instincts. They are totally devoid of characterization, insight into human nature, and significance. Reading such novels is not only a waste of time but exposing oneself to dangerous influences. Of course, there are some good detective novels such as those by Canon Doyle and there can be no objection to reading some of them, but it should be realised that the value of even good detective novels is that of entertainment, and that they do not contribute to understanding of life. But what objection can there be to reading good novels? The novel today is an important form of literature, and several distinguished writers like Tolstoy, Wells, E. M. Forster, William Golding and......

...The plot line of the story includes numerous major incidents. They are: 1) The opening of the story and an introduction of many of the major characters, including Luke, the narrator, his grandfather, and the "hill people" and Mexicans who will be picking cotton on their farm for the next two months. This also introduces a sub-plot line that will be important to the novel – Luke and his family's love of baseball. 2) Pappy's money woes and the hope the cotton will provide enough money to pay the workers and at least break even in costs. 3) The first conflict with the hill people, who camp in the front yard instead of the back, which sets the stage for further conflicts to come. 4) The introduction of Luke's father, Jesse Chandler, and his dream to own forty acres of land. 5) Introduces the Korean War, and Ricky, Jesse's brother who is fighting in Korea. This indicates the importance of the war to the family, and how close to home it is every night through the nightly news radio broadcasts of Edward R. Murrow. The radio broadcasts of news and their "beloved" Cardinal baseball team are their tenuous hold on the outside world, otherwise their world is insulated and far removed from the widespread prosperity sweeping America. 6) The picking in the cotton fields, the division between the Mexicans and the others, and the backbreaking labor of picking. 7) Introduces the budding relationship between Tally and Cowboy. 8) The hatred of the Spruills for the Chandlers...

...TEXTUAL ANALYSIS 1. The passage is taken from Volume II, chapter xx of the novel Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte. The bildungsroman begins to focus on the turning point in Jane’s maturity. She will have to make moral decisions and the passage relates her inner forebodings. The novel cannot be truly characterized as gothic however; this chapter appears to have a very gothic tone. This can be seen in the ghostly vision and weather which exhibit supernatural tones, the damaged chestnut tree, and Jane’s restlessness for no apparent reason which she describes as “hypochondriac”. Other gothic elements include Jane’s sense of terror at seeing a vision, wearing and ultimately ruining her wedding veil, the weather, and the symbolic imagery of the Chestnut tree. The passage also represents a significant issue in regards to the morale personae of Mr. Rochester. His untruth at leading Jane to the door of marriage knowing he had an insane wife, whom he could not divorce. One may suppose he should not have offered marriage to Jane. Jane would have to make a moral decision in spite of her deep love for Mr. Rochester and make choices which will affect her life from this time forward on societal and inner morality. TEXTUAL ANALYSIS 2. The passage is taken from the novel Mill on the Floss, by George Eliot, page 68.

...it, Sophie,' I sobbed, 'I couldn't help it.' 6 In the evening, when I grew calmer, I found that Rosalind was trying to talk to me. Some of the others were anxiously asking what was the matter, too. I told them about Sophie. It wasn't a secret any more now. I could feel that they were shocked. I tried to explain that a person with a deviation — a small deviation, at any rate — wasn't the monstrosity we had been told. It did not really make any difference — not to Sophie, at any rate. They received that very doubtfully indeed. The things we had all been taught were against their acceptance — though they knew well enough that what I was telling them must be true to me. You can't lie when you talk with your thoughts. They wrestled with the novel idea that a Deviation might not be disgusting and evil — not very successfully. In the circum-stances they could not give me much consolation, and I was not sorry when one by one they dropped out and I knew that they had fallen asleep. I was tired out myself, but sleep was a long time coming. I lay there, picturing Sophie and her parents plodding their way southward towards the dubious safety of the Fringes, and hoping desperately that they would be far enough off now for my betrayal not to hurt them. And then, when sleep did come, it was full of dreams. Faces and people moved restlessly through it, scenes, too. Once more there was the one where we all stood round in the yard while my father disposed of an Offence which was Sophie, and...
