Steve rayburn! ! ! Every writer has his or her ain manner of composing in the plants he or she produces. Two female British writers. Mary Austin and Willia Cather. both have similar but distinguishable manners of composing. ! ! Mary Austin wrote a novel called “Land of Little Rain” that depicts decease vale and the surrounding desert. The landscape of the narrative is no uncertainty a desert ; sand dunes. little bush. will grass. vesicating heat. scavengers and really small H2O.
Although the desert can be easy described. Austin goes to great lengths to demo the relationships between the elusive alterations in the landscape. behavioural forms of animate beings. and even the manner works life grows around the landscape. For illustration. she describes and about personi? es the manner that the dunes are blown up on themselves that finally organize a shield that protect the grasses and bushs that grow behind the dunes.
Austin takes a blunt image of the landscape and forms and sharpens it into a? uid ecosystem. She shows the vibrance of life that exists in the alleged decease vale. ! ! Willia Cather is the writer of the novel called “My Antonia” that follows the way of a male child. Jim Burden. who moves west and befriends a Bohemian household that settles near to his.
Jim is a thoughtful. self-conscious single that is really introspective ; rolling through the forests and grazing land on his Equus caballus. his ideas rolling like he is. Like Austin. Cather uses the landscape to springboard subjects and motives throughout the book. frequently the scenery being an outward look of the ideas and feelings of the characters. For illustration. the rugged. wild. potentially unsafe landscape foreshadows the at hand self-destruction of his friend’s male parent.
The decease is besides really unsafe because he was the chief breadwinner of the household. and without him the household could potentially be trapped in the air currents and iciness of the landscape themselves. Cather pulls from the scenery but uses it as a garnish instead than the chief focal point of Austin’s work. ! ! Although both authors use the landscape to construct their narratives. they use it really otherwise. Austin’s narrative is the landscape. while Cather uses the landscape as an component. The manner of both writers have similarities but have distinguishable differences.
