“The Eyes were watching God,” helps the reader understand the narrator is omniscient. Throughout the novel the narrator knows and understand the situation that goes on with the character. Despite the character’s attitude towards one another the narrator seems to know either way what’s going to happen next, because of her knowledge. There’s a moment in the novel where the nanny talks about death, which later reveals the narrator was right, the nanny dies. Making this inference, it shows the narrator knows what will happen next, because the death marks a huge part in Janie’s life, which later on makes her change her attitude, and the narrator will already know. The omniscient narrator uses many point of views of knowing everything about the character will do next. When Janie talks about other characters it’s as if she knows automatically what they are going to do. With the narrator techniques of having god-like knowledge, it is able to prove the advanced knowledge the omniscient narrator doesn’t have to second guess what the characters will do next. On many circumstances the narrator already has an idea of what will happen next to the character, which is a way of proving has knowledge.

Although there were many obstacles and challenges faced when adapting to America, they did not dismiss their true…

2. Rousseau states that the use of force in establishing the power of the state makes the people’s relation to the state one of Obedience rather than of Duty.

2) The “I” of Borges is the narrator of this story and he takes us into his mind, into a world of fantasy that is seen as his reality. The Borges connects this story to his real life and wants to make himself believe it’s real and in doing this Tlon is now a real world in the “I” of Borges. “A first person novel whose narrator would omit or distort things… so that a few of the book’s readers – a very few – might divine the horrifying…

It is an age of partisanship and not of detachment, an age in which it is especially difficult to see literary merit in a book with whose conclusions you disagree. Politics — politics in the most general sense — have invaded literature, to an extent that does not normally happen, and this has brought to the surface of our consciousness the struggle that always goes on between…
