Essay from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,7, University of Wuppertal (Fachbereich A), course: The British Novel in the Late 18th and Early 19th Century, 5 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: An important component of fiction is characterisation. But what does characterisation do for a story? It allows the reader to create a picture of the characters in a story in his mind and to empathise with the protagonist and secondary characters. Moreover characterisation moves the story of a literary text onward because fascinating characters and their actions are interdependent to the whole plot. This essay will look into the structural design of characterisation and how the principle of characterisation is significant in the unfold of the story. The dramatis personae in The Castle of Otranto can be separated into primary characters, secondary characters and minor characters. The main characters occupy Manfred, the illegitimate Prince of Otranto, the villain; Matilda, his daughter; Isabella, the intended wife of his son, Manfred ́s foster daughter, and Theodore, first a mysterious stranger and later revealed as the real Prince of Otranto. These characters are the most important characters because they appear frequently in the narrative and their actions and behaviours keep the plot in motion. The important secondary characters include Hippolita, Manfred ́s devoted wife; Jerome, the friar and Frederic, the believed to be death Marquis of Vicenza, Isabella ́s father. Minor characters, but nevertheless quite interesting and important ones for the outcome of the story, are the servants Diego and Jaquez and last but not least, the chambermaid Bianca. Additional characters like Conrad, the son of Manfred, and Alfonso ́s ghost will not be considered in the essay. The first one dies in the beginning and never appears alive but he has to be mentioned because his death triggers the story off. The second one functions as kind of watchdog who reminds and threatens mostly Manfred and the domestics by causing supernatural events in the castle. ---Bibliographie >Mandell, Laura (ed.). 2007.

We know where we are with a fairy story. There is a cast of predictable characters, the hero or heroine is submitted to terrible trials, cruelty, and injustice but in the end the baddies get their comeuppance, good triumphs, and everyone lives happily ever after. In this book Manfred Kets de Vries, one of the world's leading authorities on the psychology of leadership, and a pioneering practitioner in the field of psychodynamic executive coaching, draws on the format of traditional fairy tales and tells us five stories that dramatize five key themes of dysfunctional leadership. The accompanying commentaries analyze each tale and examine the ways in which it applies to leadership behavior and organizational practices. This diagnostic element is supported by self-assessment tests that reinforce the main lessons of each tale and guide the reader's interpretation of the results. With Kets de Vries's guidance you'll be able to help your clients create best places to work, where everyone is the best they can be, and lives 'happily ever after'.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2.0, University of Osnabruck, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: There are more than 50 years between "The Castle of Otranto" and "Melmoth the Wanderer." "The Castle of Otranto" was published 1764, "The Italian" 1797 and "Melmoth the Wanderer" 1820. It might be interesting that "The Castle of Otranto" was published in year of birth of Ann Radcliffe and "The Italian" has been published in the year Horace Walpole died. An incident of course, but an interesting one. "The Castle of Otranto" is set in the time between 1095 and 1243, "The Italian" is set in the 18th century and "Melmoth the Wanderer" covers an period of time from the late 17th century to the early 19th century. In the following work will find out especially about the women in the three mentioned novels. In which way are they presented, is there a stereotype of a gothic heroine and are there changes throughout the time referring to the date of publishing and writing? The first point will be a short definition of the term "Gothic" according to literature. The second point will be an introduction of the three authors. For a better understanding of their work and the possible differences a look at their biography is absolutely necessary for me. In order of publishing I will introduce Horace Walpole ("The Castle of Otranto"), Ann Radcliffe ("The Italian") and Charles Robert Maturin ("Melmoth the Wanderer"). Additional to some biographical dates I will give some information about their work and their style of writing. After introducing the authors I will concentrate on the novels and how women are described and presented. Which role do they play in the three novels? Is there something special about each woman in the texts? Here I will concentrate on some characteristics which are typical for gothic novels and not so much on the social conventions or expectations women are faced with at the appropria"
