“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. The omniscient narrator uses many point of views of understanding the situation. When the narrator mentions any character she seems to have a good understanding of what would happen. With the omniscient narrator having the power to understand the situation, she shows how much knowledge…

Every red-blooded American male reaches a zenith in his life when he has finally joined the company of men, and been deemed worthy to receive a lifetime of collected wisdom and tutelage from his elder “packmates”. This knowledge comes in both lewd and often brutally honest sentiments that can induce feelings of excitement and unabashed shame, but regardless of the emotions evoked, it is a necessary rite of passage signifying a young man’s entrance into the world of his peers…

3. Why is knowledge the he thinks more certain than that of himself as a corporeal object? How does the certainty that he thinks lead to a certainty that he exists, or as he has stated elsewhere, his famous assertion, “I think, therefore I am,” or cogito, ergo sum?
Knowledge is power and no one knows this better than Descartes as he explains that the more someone knows the better they have on judging things. Since knowledge is facts a person’s judgment is clearer…

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…

In essays “Living in Spanish” by Marjorie Agosín and “Mothers Tongue” by Amy Tan, the narrators both experience the struggle of language and its barriers in America. In their essays, they explain that having the capability to speak proper English and assimilate themselves to American customs were ways of surviving in the US.

a.) What kind of narrator / voice / speaker / persona / mask has the author created? First person (a participant, a voice using I and perhaps we)? Second person (a voice addressing the reader or auditor [or even an unidentified auditor of the text, e.g., in Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado”] as you)? Third person (an outsider, using he, she, it, they)? Also, look for shifts in point of view within a literary work.
b.) What degree of knowledge does the narrator have? Omniscient? Limited-omniscient…
chose a pen name that stressed his deep, lifelong affection for the English tradition and countryside: George is the patron saint of England, while the River Orwell in Suffolk was one of his most beloved English sites.
Soon after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, Orwell volunteered to fight for the Republicans against Franco's Nationalist uprising. Orwell was shot in the neck in 1937, an experience he described in his short essay "Wounded by a Fascist Sniper", as well as in Homage to Catalonia.…

ever being realised, one must go to Spain. Here, he endured the perils of centralised authoritarianism first hand while fighting alongside anarchist separatists in Spain’s 1936-39 civil war. Appalled at the ‘poisonous influence’ inflicted on the Spanish insurrectionists by Moscow-led communists from afar, Orwell later detected similar ideological tendencies and influences taking hold within Britain’s state socialism. Nineteen Eighty-Four was his documented warning as such; an extrapolation – to the…
