Стилистический анализ текста: Doris Lessing “England Versus England”

The text under stylistic analysis is taken from the book “England versus England” written by Doris Lessing. This story is told by the author.

It deals with feelings and emotions of author and written in the style of fiction. The scene is laid in small English village. The main character are Charlie and his father Mr. Thornton. This part of a story is about a generation gap between young man Charlie and his father Mr. Thornton.

The comparison “like a poltergeist standing” used for strength sense.

I think the main idea of this text following: no one shouldn’t frustrate their parents and waiste all time only for fun and joy, without any real sense in life; have not thought about parents...
