- Relationships create strong holds in novels. They give a sense of what to base a character’s acts and decision’s on. Through how the author uses their tone and descriptions, relating to relationships, a sense of characterization can be developed. “Anna Karenina”, by Leo Tolstoy, translated by Joel Carmichael, and “Chronicle of a Death Foretold”, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, translated by Gregory Rabassa, are no exception to this clause.
- After World War I, American people and the authors among them were disillusioned by the effects that war had on their society.

- David was the virtual art dictator of France for a generation. Extending beyond painting, his influence determined the course of fashion, furniture design, and interior decoration and was reflected in the development of moral philosophy.

- Book Review One: Chickamauga Suffering has no flag. Pain has no territory. Death visits us all. These are human experiences which transcend any qualities we may attribute to ourselves. Most people have heard and read of the politics, the power, and the epic battles of the civil war era.

- Making people a laughing-stock is a common occurrence in America. Most people experience being made fun of in life. Not many people would think of an author writing an entire story employing satire. Mark Twain did write using satire, not only for parts of his book but for almost all of it.
- Carl Maria von Weber, a cousin of Mozart’s wife Constanze, was trained as a musician from his childhood, the son of a versatile musician who had founded his own travelling theatre company.

- Unbelievably Mary Shelley wrote the novel Frankenstein at the age of eighteen. This great work captures the imaginations of its readers. Frankenstein remains one of the greatest examples of Gothic literature. Unlike other Gothic novels of the time, however, Frankenstein also includes elements of Romantic writing, and therefore cannot be classified as soley Gothic.
- Frankenstein is an intriguing novel in respect to its haunting and powerful story and its effective development. From the monster?s murders to the monster?s need for companionship the story is truly diverse. The story itself is about a man who created a “monster” that messes with nature, and nature comes back to mess with him.

- After that, I will evaluate the criticism of the book using one or two quotes from the book. >From there, I go into my next literary work. I describe the basic plot of A Clean Well-Light place. Then I describe the themes of the story.
- The above quote raises some interesting questions one must consider about the mass media. What decides which messages the media portrays to the consumer? What must a medium contain that makes us want to watch it? Maybe the artists just make what interests them.
- Our society today largely views censorship as a method that has disappeared from liberal cultures since the enlightenment with the exception of restrictions in time of war.
