The Detective Genre in 'Devil in a Blue Dress'
[ send me this essay ]
A 6 page paper on the novel by Walter Mosley. The paper suggests that the novel has a hard time characterizing itself as either mystery or social commentary, and while it has elements of both, it has the strengths of neither.

Tim O'Brien/ Going After Cacciato & The Things They Carried
[ send me this essay ]
A 15 page comparison between the above mentioned novels by Tim O'Brien. In these novels, O'Brien examines feelings and uncertainties that speak to the heart of being human and leave the reader thinking, rather then feeling that all their questions have been answered. O'Brien's artistry encompasses all of the nuances and pathos of the human condition, but set within a framework that coincides with the period that formed the crux of his own experience‹the Vietnam War. The writer specifically examines the novels relative to O'Brien's use of structure. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
