Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

Stream of consciousness, a staple of modern literature, gives what sort of insight to a reader of creative writing?

Answer:

This method, stream of consciousness, is designed to give a reader more insight into the mind of the narrator. This is achieved by writing thought in a way which accurately follows human patterns (we don't think in straight lines.) For example, a writer may choose to fragment thoughts, include "bad" grammar, sight, sound, etc. Consider this line from Virginia Woolf's Miss Dalloway, "What a lark! What a plunge! For so it always seemed to me when, with a little squeak of the hinges, which I can hear now, I burst open the French windows and plunged at Bourton into the open air." Now, if I were to write this without the stream, "I opened the window."

Subject: Shakespeare

Question:

Which stage of the English language did Shakespeare write in? (examples: Modern English, Old English, Middle English, Early Modern English.)

Answer:

Shakespeare wrote in Early Modern English. It's a common misconception that he wrote in Old English instead. However, Old English was used in the Anglo-Saxon period. Meaning, the language is incredibly Germanic and impossible to understand for Modern English speakers such as ourselves (unless, of course, you're a smarty.)

Subject: Literature

TutorMe
Question:

As literature has profound connections to history, it can provide us unparalleled insight into the experience of important historical events. Samuel Pepys, a prominent author in 17th century England, documented several important moments in history. Could you tell me an event? How about the form of his writing? (Hint: Pepys is considered the father of this form.)

Answer:

Samuel Pepys documented his experience during 17th century Restoration England through the diary form. The specific events detailed were the coronation of Charles II, The Great Fire of London, and The Great Plague.
