Discussion 12 Fiction.
I’m working on a English question and need guidance to help me study.
Select the longer novella that you did not write about in Discussion 11 and its attendant critical analyses, and perform one of the following activities upon it:
- For The Dead, determine what insight into the style and form Richard Ellman provides that helps you to understand the novella. Do you agree with the critical judgments made? Why or why not? or
- For The Death of Ivan Ilych, evaluate the utility of the Tolstoy’s criticism of other writer’s works in understanding his own novella. Does he reveal anything about his own writing in writing about others’ writing?
For this i choose The Dead, both the novella and its attendant critical analyses.
