    “An Ant Enclosed in a Circle”: The function of space and Identity in Shani Mootoo’s Cereus Blooms at Night “However, I cannot escape myself, and being a narrator who also existed on the periphery of the events, in am bound to be present. I have my own laments and much to tell about myself. It is my intent, however, to refrain from inserting myself too forcefully.” This is a quote from the character Tyler in Shani Mootoo’s Cereus Blooms at Night. This shows Tyler’s character in his conscious determination to ensure Mala’s story reigns supreme. Though we do learn some of Tyler’s story, he does not overly force himself into Mala’s historical space. We notice this trend of Tyler respecting not only Mala’s historical space, but her identity as well throughout the novel. As Mootoo explores the complex concepts of space and identity in the patriarchal, postcolonial setting of Paradise Lantanacamera, we learn how important those words are and why Tyler does his best to ensure that his story does usurp that of Mala’s. While the setting in the novel is fictional, the issues and struggles mirror the…

    “When I left that icy prison I’d no idea where north and south were but I did have two very strong convictions. One was that good novels must be a poetic transposition of reality, and the other was that mankind’s immediate future lay in socialism” (qtd. in Bloom 11). This is the essence of Gárcia Márquez. A man of hard principles and passionate imagination, he was born on March 6, 1928 in Aracataca, Columbia. His childhood years were marked by his relationships with his grandparents and his…

    Bloom On Humanity

    • 2 Pages

    Bloom argues that humanity’s excessive communication alters our perception of reality. He says that in an experiment conducted by Solomon Asch 75% of people would agree with the group’s claim, even if it was wrong (31). This phenomenon is not peer pressure, it is the brain reworking what we see. If many people see something that you don’t, then your brain will assume something is wrong and try to correct your vision to the group’s, which is the reason why “[the participants’s] senses had been…
