Morwenna J Holman Bleak Spirit

Bleak Spirit is based on the story of the tragic Brontes with Emily taking centre stage in this novel. Although we enter her mystical world the sadness and futility of her brother's life reaches out to the reader and we alternately rejoice and despair as the family move through the years. Their original poetry has not been used in this book but the verses constructed still evoke those poignant feelings of the moors and the emotional tumult of their lives which transports the reader back to 19th century Yorkshire. For Emily it was always the moors and the hearth of home and in this novel the grimly austere Hawfield is portrayed as the Haworth we know and love. Emily comes out from the shadows in this novel and leaves behind something of the enigma she has been viewed with in other books but still that unique reserve of character and her desire for isolation seal her doom in her final illness. She desired to be as God made her and hence she returns to her mystical world as a free spirit, reunited with the brother she loved so much.

Marco Sievers Social Change in the 19th Century Novel

Examination Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, University of Hannover (Philosophische Fakultät / Englisches Seminar), language: English, abstract: The approach of this dissertation is based on New Historicism and Cultural Materialism, and examines the processes of social change in the novel. It contextualises the industrial plot of "Shirley" on two time levels, on the level of the setting (1811-12) and on the level of the novel's production and publication (1848-49).The study first elaborates on "Shirley" as a condition of England novel before shedding light on the historical conditions and their representation in the novel's setting. Subsequently, it describes Luddism and Chartism as historical working-class movements, to show that Charlotte Brontë's choice of Luddism was partly motivated by fears of political reprisals, by institutional constraints of the publishing sector, as well as by the power of public opinion. Furthermore, this paper deals with the author's technique of backdating as a strategy to indirectly comment on Chartism. The examination then turns to the novel's representation of the Luddites, and discusses whether the portrayal of the machine wreckers is just a "lurid travesty", as Terry Eagleton contends (cf. Eagleton, 49). It demonstrates that the novel is based on thoroughly researched historical facts and exhibits an ambivalent attitude towards the weavers, which su...

Nikolai Gogol, D.J. Hogarth Dead Souls. A satirical novel

Dead Souls (Russian: Myortvyjye dushi) is a novel by Nikolai Gogol, first published in 1842, and widely regarded as an exemplar of 19th-century Russian literature. The purpose of the novel was to demonstrate the flaws and faults of the Russian mentality and character. Gogol masterfully portrayed those defects through Paul Ivanovitch Chichikov (the main character) and the people whom he encounters in his endeavours. These people are typical of the Russian middle-class of the time. Gogol himself saw it as an "epic poem in prose", and within the book as a "novel in verse". Despite supposedly completing the trilogy's second part, Gogol destroyed it shortly before his death. Although the novel ends in mid-sentence (like Sterne's Sentimental Journey), it is usually regarded as complete in the extant form.

Robert Dean Frisbie The Island of Desire. The Story of a South Sea Trader

Robert Dean Frisbie left America for the South Pacific in 1920 and four years later set up a trading station on Danger Island, now called Pukapuka, a lonely paradise four hundred miles northeast of Samoa. This autobiographical story relates how the author fell in love with and married a charming Polynesian woman, whose name translates as Desire, and became part of the life of the island. The next six years were wonderfully happy ones. Desire gave birth first to Johnny (a girl), then Jakey, Elaine, and Nga. The charm of their lives, beyond "the faintest echo from the noisy clamour of the civilised world", is spread before the reader with the miraculous colour and texture of a Gauguin painting.

Imagery enlightens, but it also obscures; imagery is loyal, but it also betrays; imagery is visible on the surface, but manifests itself at hidden depths. Their mutual struggle -- to live in prose while thinking in imagery -- affects the two Macbeths in different ways.The ProjectTogether, this novel and the journal and notebook that accompany it, comprise the twentieth installment in an on-going novel-writing project in which the author is exploring the concept of form and meaning in the novel, and of the novel as a form of expression in the 21st Century.
