  1. What is dystopian fiction?

    The conditions are harsh and the protagonist ?hadn?t kept a calendar for years?, as he saw no purpose for having one seeing as it would be futile to keep a calendar as in his world. Life is unfulfilling and time in effect stands still, in the aspect of recreation and enjoyment, yet ?survival? appears to be their primal focus and instinct.

  2. How Sebastian Faulks uses language in "Birdsong"

    In addition, he adds to this by introducing elements which will later relate to the First World War, and in doing so, ensures that when the reader reaches those sections, we will be reminded of the earlier scenes. In Part Three, Faulks describes the ?train of the Central Line [which] fitted its tube like a bullet in the barrel of a rifle?, this simile links the London Underground with the armaments of battle. He also reminds us that the tunnels of the Underground were ?dug by sweating tunnellers? which is reminiscent of Jack Firebrace?s role before and during the war.

  3. The Stranger by Albert Camus. Immediately hes judged just because he doesnt seem to act the same as others wouldve if they were in his situation

    ?But I hesitated, because I didn?t know if I could do it with Maman right there. I thought about it; it didn?t matter. I offered the caretaker a cigarette and we smoked.?This is just the beginning of his down fall, his bad decision making is seen and he chose to smoke even though he knew it wasn?t appropriate at his mother?s funeral. ?I remember opening my eyes at one point and seeing that all the old people were slumped over asleep..who was staring at me as if he were just waiting for me to wake up?.
