Examination of Two Texts
The English language is full of wonderful pieces of literary artwork. These pieces of writings or artworks have been compiled on different topics and highlight the current mental or emotional state of the author. Some of these works depict the romantic expressions of the writer whereas some predict the revolutionary ideas of a person in the form of a story about a freedom fighter. One of the best and quickest ways to convey your message or internal state of mind is through short stories. Short stories serve to be the best and meaningful way in which a writer can convey his or her message completely in a very short and concise way.
I am very fond of reading stories, especially short stories, One of the amazing short stories I came across was “Battle Royale”. Battle Royale is a short story written by Ralph Ellison in 1952. The short story is an opening to a bigger novel that was written by the author in his coming life. The story is about a young man who is fighting for equal rights and identity. The narrator of the story is shown to be struggling for his identity and equality and represents the whole African-American struggle that had been going on since a long time.
Another meaningful short story that I came across is “The Garden Party” by Katherine Mansfield (Knutti). The story was written in 1922 and was published in three parts in the Saturday Westminster Gazette on 4 and 11 February 1922, and the Weekly Westminster Gazette on 18 February 1922. The story is about a young girl Laura, who belongs to an upper class or elite section of the society and has always receive the exquisite treatment. But soon she realizes the reality of life during a garden party, The death of a neighbor also disturbs her much (Darrohn).
