HTRLLP Chapter 13: It's All Political
Transcript of HTRLLP Chapter 13: It's All Political
-Writers must be careful not to be too political, as it can ruin the novel.
-Good writers use politics to strengthen and interest the reader.
-Most writers convey their politics through the personality and behavior of the characters, or through metaphors and symbolism.
Summary: Examples in the book: Animal Farm: Socialism Other examples: 1. Foster asserts that, "Nearly all writing is political on some level" (Foster 111).
2. Why can most literature be called "political"?
- "Let's say this: Writers tend to be men and women who are interested in the worlds around them. That world contains many things, and on the level of society, part of what it contains is the political reality of the time... That's why political and social considerations often find their way onto the page in some guise, even when the result doesn't look terribly 'political'" (Foster 115). Study Guide Questions: 1849, and Dickens was engaged with David Copperfield. "A Christmas Carol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia." Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. N.p., n.d.
