    Excerpt from Saturday by Ian McEwan: Some hours before dawn Henry Perowne‚ a neurosurgeon‚ wakes to find himself already in motion‚ pushing back the covers from a sitting position‚ and then rising to his feet. It’s not clear to him when exactly he became conscious‚ nor does it seem relevant. He’s never done such a thing before‚ but he isn’t alarmed or even faintly surprised‚ for the movement is easy‚ and pleasurable in his limbs‚ and his back and legs feel unusually strong. He stands there‚ naked

    Judging Lines Between Reality and Imagination in Atonement As I read Atonement‚ by Ian McEwan‚ on the beach in Long Beach Island I was confronted with a somewhat new style of writing that I did not recognize. The splitting of the novel into three main parts only made sense to me after I had finished it; the account of the crime that took place at the Tallis household‚ Robbie Turner’s adventures at war‚ and Briony’s tales as a nurse were all connected and ended up “coming together” much more smoothly

    ENDURING LOVE Ian McEwan A dictionary defines the word addictive as being: wholly devoted to something‚ a slave to another and in a state of wanting more. Ian McEwan claimed that he wanted to write an opening chapter that had the same effect as a highly addictive drug. In my opinion he has achieved in doing this. At the end of chapter one the reader is left needing more information about the characters introduced and what tragedy actually occurred. McEwan took the definition

    How does Ian McEwan convey Briony in Part One of Atonement? At first glance‚ Ian McEwan presents Briony Tallis as an innocent child who simply witnessed scenes she did not understand‚ however what we can actually see‚ as the novel progresses‚ is that Briony is an attention seeking‚ self-absorbed‚ meddling child whose series of incorrect observations come to wreck Cecilia and Robbie’s lives. We are introduced to Briony Tallis at the very start of the novel‚ when she is preparing for cousins from

    absolved for an offence or not. In Atonement‚ a novel of drama‚ war and romance‚ the author Ian McEwan characterizes the main character‚ Briony‚ as a very self-centered person. McEwan’s novel is self-referential when it is implied that the novel is one Briony wrote in order to reach atonement. Nicholas Lezard‚ critic for the Guardian‚ says that Briony’s atonement and ‘the truth’ of her story is weakened by Ian McEwan’s characterization of her as an unreliable person.

    • 1038 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Ian McEwan’s 1999 novel Atonement demonstrates the consequences of a false accusation as it progresses over three different time periods. Through a variety of literary techniques and devices‚ including intertextuality‚ symbolism‚ imagery‚ characterisation and metafiction‚ McEwan demonstrates the danger of an imagination that can’t quite see the boundaries of what is real and what is unreal. He explores the dangers of a falsified reality‚ while the suffering because of his protagonist Briony’s imagination

    Ian McEwan’s Atonement draws inspiration from and alludes to a vast number of 20th century modernist authors and works‚ both stylistically and thematically. For a novel to be considered a successful culmination to the reading of a large body of works‚ however‚ it must not be content with merely echoing the themes‚ styles‚ and forms of the past. Rather‚ it must extend them‚ add to them creatively‚ and attempt to pull them into contemporary readership. While his thematic and stylistic allusions to
