Transcript of Copy of Isolation Theme Presentation

‘Nobody could touch him […] I don’t care about any of them.’ ‘The tiny figures of his mother and Mr Hooper’.
- Kingshaw is shown to be completely isolated in his suffering from Hooper. Mr Hooper and Mrs Kingshaw are completely oblivious of Kingshaws constant trauma.

-Isolation portrayed both metaphorically and literally.

-Kingshaw is the only person on top of the castle, with the rest of the family below, completely distanced from him and unable to reach up to his level.

-Kingshaw's isolation is shown to come around through his own fault.

-This literal interpretation of the Isolation theme causes the reader to feel stronger towards the prescence of isolation and loneliness, and to empathise more with Kingshaw.
The effect of narrative structure and how it portrays the theme of isolation.
-In this novel Susan Hill uses rapidly alternating narrative points of view, this choice of the writer’s makes the reader feel distanced and emotionally void.

-Hill uses the juxtaposition of ideas to show the contrasting opinions and feeling within the group of characters from this we can infer that isolation is evident within the group as people with opposing beliefs tend to stray away from each other.

- A good example of this would be the repeated anger felt by Kingshaw about his mother’s Bracelets and the “way the slid up and down her arm”.

-The omniscient 3rd person narrative makes the reader feel distanced from the characters, in this narrative form we do not connect with any of the personalities within the novel.
