What makes this novel particularly disturbing is the fact that Humbert\'s sexual perversion is disguised in highly poetic garb and that the only monitor of vir

The main effect of employing techniques of an epic is, however, not so much to have fun with the epic, but to deflate a subject or charact

He refers to nature as well to help explain the various levels of life. Much of Frost’s poetry relates to the major concerns of life such as the fragility of life, the consequences of accepting or rejecting the conditions of one’s life, the passion of inconsolable grief, and the difficulty of sustaining intimacy

Song of the Unsung Antihero Abstract: The sober treatment of a lowly, unheroic protagonist in Arthur Miller\'s Death of a Salesman flatters the audience. The more obvious way that it flatters us is by alienating us from the protagonist in his downfall so that we watch his destruction from a secure vantage. Less obviously, the form of the play, typical of modern American tragedy, romanticizes the protagonist through what I call the audience\'s paradox, that tension created when a serious work of
