Kaze Lato

In theory, prefigure of expression reveals a perspective from which the fibber tells the paper. Analyzing a stratums fountainhead of spate will provide us with answers to two questions by whom and how the story is told. By the way, we notify also sympathize attitude of the writer towards his characters as well. In the case of Babylon Revisited, the angiotensin converting enzyme who tells us this story is a third-person narrator. To be more specific, he is a limited omniscient narrator.Firstly we notice that the narrator addresses the protagonist by name Charlie or the third person he, and also does the same with other characters. This suggests that he stands somewhere be side the story, witnessing it without participating in it, and then retells us what happended- that is why the narrator is called a third-person. From the objective blossom of view of a third person narrator, the story appears to be more all-round and reliable. On the other hand, the narrator in this sto ry is omniscient.Firstly it is because he can read mind of characters. He leads us into Charlies thoughts to make a look at his absolutely different life one year and a half ago and also his nostalgia of it or to face his loss when finding the Ritz legal community gloomy and quiet. Charlie directed his taxi to the highroad de lOpera, which was out of his way. But he wanted to see the blue second spread over the magnificent facade, and imagine that the cab horns, playing incessantly the first few bars of La Plus que Lent, were the trumpets of the arcsecond Empire.They were closing the iron grill in front of Brentanos Book-store, and people were already at dinner behind the trim little bourgeois fudge of Duvals. He had never eaten at a really cheap eating place in Paris. Five-course dinner, four francs fifty, eighteen cents, wine included. For some odd cause he wished that he had. As they rolled on to the Left banking company and he felt its sudden provincialism, he thought , I spoiled this city for myself. I didnt realize it, plainly the days came a spacious one afterwards another(prenominal), and then two years were gone, and everything was gone, and I was gone. The narrator knows everything Charlie has in his mind. Furthermore, the narrator even knows things that Charlie is not aware of. The most important of those is the fact that Charlie left hand his address for Duncan Schaeffer at the beginning of the text, and forgot about it somewhere between the Ritz bar and the Peters house. This one detail opens up the stage for Charlies tragic loss of Honoria at the end of the story. Charlie doesnt remember this detail hes left in confusion as to righteous how Duncan ferreted out the Peters address while the narrator know it just because of his omniscience.In addition he is not absolutely omnicient the narrator is limited at bottom Charlies perspective. In most of the story, the author describes the surrounding environment from Charlies view, and int erprets only Charlies thoughts. It is an intention of the author to dig deeply into Charlies inner life that the narrator focuses only on Charlies affable state. And this confines the narrator to be a limited narrator. However, in a small part of the story, the constant point of view is diverted to another characters perspective.In the following paragraph, the narrator tells the story from the view of Mrs. Marrion With to each one remark the force of her dislike became more and more apparent. She had built up all her fear of life into one wall and faced it toward him. Marion shuddered short part of her saw that Charlies feet were planted on the earth now, and her own maternal(p) feeling recognized the naturalness of his desire but she had lived for a long time with a prejudice a prejudice founded on a curious disbelief in her sisters happiness, and which, in the shock of one prankish night, had turned to hatred for him.It had all happened at a point in her life where the discou ragement of ill health and adverse circumstances make it necessary for her to believe in unmistakable villainy and a tangible villain The oddity in narration does not ruin the come down of the story by interfering with the point of view, but, on the contrary, it contributes considerably to the story because it enhances the reliability. The story would not be so dramatic if readers could not understand the distrust of Mrs. Marrion in Charlies reform. This paragraph keeps readers, who is on Charlies side at the first place, doubting about the certainty of his willingness to mend.It also reveals the inward uncertainty to resist alcohol in the nature of Charlie himself. Such is the not bad(p) effect that a change in point of view can has on the trend of the story. That is a brief portrait of the narrator who tells us the story of Babylon Revisited. Another question that we are answering is how the story is narrated from his point of view. The narrator have a vitally important role i n choosing what is mentioned during the story. It is because the world emerging in the story is filtered through the point of view of the narrator.In the case of Babylon Revisited, surrounding environment in the story is imbued with Charlies feelings and thoughts. Fitzgerald uses a technique called stream of consciousness technique to narrate this mixture of inside and outside world He left soon after dinner, but not to go home. He was curious to see Paris by night with clearer and more judicious eyes than those of other days. He bought a strapontin for the Casino and watched Josephine Baker go through her chocolate arabesques. After an min he left and strolled toward Montmartre, up the Rue Pigalle into the Place Blanche.The rain had stop and there were a few people in evening vesture disembarking from taxis in front of cabarets, and cocottes prowling singly or in mates, and many Negroes. He passed a lighted door from which issued music, and stopped with the sense of familiarity it was Bricktops, where he had separate with so many hours and so much money. A few doors further on he found another ancient rendezvous and raffishly put his head inside. Immediately an eager orchestra burst into sound, a pair of professional dancers leaped to their feet and a maitre dhotel swooped toward him, crying, Crowd just arriving, sir But he withdrew right away
