The Maturation of Emma in Jane Austen's "Emma"
Deception is a device that Austen uses to great advantage. Emma deceives herself that Mr. Elton’s attentions are for Harriet. Frank Churchill’s attentions to Emma are a deception and a misdirection (which leads one to wonder if Austen named this character with tongue in cheek). Austen then juxtaposes these deceptions against the forthright manner of both Mr. Knightly and Mr. Martin. The angst,…
The Metamorphosis

The conflicts that arise from the basic emotional nature of man, and the emulated automation of modern living, sum up the struggles of man in the twentieth century. And naturally, literature and art has,…
Flights of Love by Bernard Schlink
Until National Socialism came to power there existed in Germany a so-called modern art, which is to say that, almost by the nature of the word, there was something new almost every year. National Socialist Germany, however, means to have a German art once again, and this like all the creative values of a people, must and will be an eternal art. If art lacks an eternal value for our people, then…
Love in Mary Shelleys Frankenstein
Love cannot eclipse sorrow as Victor 'is generally melancholy and despairing, and sometimes he gnashes his teeth, as if impatient of the weight of woes that oppresses him.' (Shelley 9). Ralph begins to love Victor like a brother and is in turn saddened to see him broken by misery. Ralph asks him to relate his story so that he can see if he can be of help to him. Victor thanks him for his sympathy…
J.D. Salingers Novels
Although the majority of Holden's "journey" occurs in the city of his upbringing, his flights from person to person in search of an emotional connection are in vain. Ultimately, he discovers that in order to truly change he must remain in place and look inside himself. For both protagonists, the literal journey therefore comes to symbolize the interior journey. Both undergo transformations that…

Anita Pachecos Royalism and honor in Aphra Behns Oroonoko
The review begins with a clearly stated objective of exploring the main points of Pacheco's essay and analysing its strengths and weaknesses; however, proceeds to describe Pacheco's arguments and illustrations that suggest Behn's hero as 'Eurocentric' and 'royalist.' A significant portion of the review is spent on summarising Pacheco's viewpoints, and presents little attempt to analyse or…
