Though sometimes unnoticed, the setting of a story is a keystone aspect in all narratives, especially in this case; it sketches out the story, while the plot and characters colour it in. In the story Side Bet, the author provides extremely vivid details, through the use of animated and eloquent words, which is important in a survival story, as the environment is almost always the root cause of all the problems. One especially detailed paragraph, the opening passage of Side Bet, is a brilliant example of this: “There was a vast blue bowl which was the sky. Across it, with agonizing slowness, there marched a brazen sun which poured down light to dazzle and burn out the man’s eyes, and heat to broil the brains in his skull.

    The Internalisation of Ugliness Postcolonial criticism aims to teach us to read ourselves, revealing our psychological ‘inheritance’ of racial discrimination; the product of a society in which we are constantly subjected to images of whiteness. It addresses the subconscious influence of the media in shaping us to be racist, and indoctrinating victims of racism with the belief that whiteness is the paragon of beauty. Toni Morrison’s ‘The Bluest Eye’ and Alice Walker’s ‘The Colour Purple’ reveal…
