Question:

Q3. How would you describe a dystopia?

Inactive
Arnab C.
Answer:

This term was, in all probability, first used by John Stuart Mill in the House of Commons in 1869 while discussing the Irish question. A dystopia is a "negative utopia", a frightening world that is often placed in near future and is a critique of our currents modes of living. Examples include Orwell's 1984, Animal Farm; Burgess' The Clockwork Orange and, to take a very recent example, Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go.

Question:

Q1. How would you describe the Essays of Elia by Charles Lamb?

Inactive
Arnab C.
Answer:

Charles Lamb is an autobiographical prose writer. The essays show his subjective awareness of the world around him which is a trait of the romantic movement in England. His much-anthologized essays, viz. "The Dream Children" and "The Superannuated Man" take as their sources, incidents from his life. The first concerns a group of imaginary children who converse with Lamb, as he had no children; the second his job as a clerk, overburdened with responsibilities in London.

Question:

Q1. How 'original' are the plays of William Shakespeare?

Inactive

Answer:

A: It has to be understood at the outset that the bard never wrote any 'original' plays. He re-used the materials from other plays that were either long forgotten, or were less dramatized and added his own, unique vision of life in them. This may come as a rude shock to the lovers of his plays, but is true. His main sources were Holinshed's chronicles and North's Histories.
