  • Creative Writing: The Book Thief Liesel Meminger

    The entire bedroom was enclosed in a blanket of darkness. I could hear my sisters, Lillian and Angela, breathing lightly as sleep came across them. I edged my way to the little bookcase next to my bed and my hand fumbled across it; I felt my horse figurines, a few hairclips, and a notebook, but I didn’t need those things now.

  • Deception In A Doll's House

    It is not without significance that Henrik Ibsen chose to name his socio-critical play A Doll’s House, and not The Doll’s House, nor Doll’s House. Indeed, removing the indefinite article would defeat the purpose of exposing the triviality of this situation and attributing it a universal value. Such is the case for Nora: a young girl living her life as ‘a doll’ in a society fixated on superficial appearances over truth and integrity. However, as the play progresses, such appearances prove to be…

  • Imagery In The Catcher In The Rye By J. D. Salinger
