Symbolism can take many forms; it can be a person, object, or a particular phrase or action. Symbols in a work of literature are like clues in a complex mystery that make the literary work much more interesting and inspiring. William Golding uses many symbols in The Lord of t

CRITICISM Strange weather in King Lear Steve Mentz* St John’s University, New York, USA This article argues that King Lear can help re-shape the emerging discourse of eco-criticism. The play’s focus on human dis-harmony with the non-human environment resonates with recent developments in ecological science like the ‘‘post-equilibrium shift’’.

His own experience in Paris has provided him the background for the novel as a depiction of the 'lost generation'. Hemingway's writing career began early;

Nemerov's contribution to our literature--as a gifted writer of ficti
Nemerov's contribution to our literature--as a gifted writer of fiction and critical prose, but pre-eminently as a poet-- does not seem to me to have received as much celebrity as it deserves. Nemerov's virtues are all in fact unfashionable ones for our time: vivid intelligence, an irreverent sense of humor, a mastery of formal verse, an awareness of mystery (Books 3). Although known primarily as a poet, Howard Nemerov has also distinguished himself as a critic, short story writer, and nove

His parents were Murry C. and Maud Butler Falkner; it was William himself who later added a “u” to the name. Soon the Falkners moved to Ripley, in the adjoining county, and then 50 miles southwestward to Oxford, where William was to spend most of his life. In Oxford his father owned and lost a livery stable and a hardware store before
