  • Part Of Bartleby's Power Over The Narrator
    1,861 words
    'Bartleby the Scrivener' is a complex story, so I am going to zero in on one particularly interesting and intelligent aspect of it. Due to the power of the message even this one particular aspect will be complex, of course. The first thing to note is that the story has a first-person narrator. The narrator, an anonymous lawyer, is in fact a major character in his own right. Ostensibly the story is about Bartleby and his actions as a scrivener.

  • Maxim's Experience With The Narrator
    796 words
    Rebecca by Daphne Du MaurierTexts show us how experience often changes people. 'Rebecca', a novel written by Daphne Du Maurer illustrates this point.

Each murderer takes a specific journey that has been illustrated in each case. The psychological make-up of each murderer shows that he is a normal person up to the point at whic...
