После долгого ожидания вышел первый выпуск рассылки "Лингво-стилистические анализы произведений". Долгая задержка объясняется тотальным изменением дизайна сайта http://refolit.narod.ru/, который совсем недавно приобрел новый облик и навигацию. Несмотря на то, что обновление шло не быстрыми темпами, оно происходило очень направленно. Теперь на сайте объявлен новый курс - обновление контента. Появятся новые интересные статьи и заметки для изучающих английский язык, и конечно же увеличится количество анализов произведений.

Направленность рассылки

В первую очередь, рассылка рассчитана помочь студентам, углубленно изучающим английский язык, так как на определенном этапе обучения появляется предмет "интерпретация текста", который не дает покоя многим, кто не может с ним справиться. Большая часть студентов даже на старших курсах не может окончательно разобраться с такими понятиями как анализ текста, стилистические приемы, схема интерпретации. Мы попытаемся сделать попытку помочь всем, кто в этом нуждается.

Кроме того, рассылка будет полезна тем, кто изучает иностранный язык для себя. Ведь читая какое-либо произведение в оригинале, вы сможете глубже вникнуть в его смысл, разобравшись например в идее, представленной автором.

Вашему вниманию предлагаем анализ произведение Шервуда Андерсона, чтобы понять, что именно должна представлять из себя содержательная интерпретация.

"LONELINESS" by SHERWOOD ANDERSON

The story under the title "Loneliness" written by Sherwood Anderson begins with the description of the place where the main character Enoch Robinson lived. Old citizens remembered him as a quiet, smiling youth inclined to silence. When he was 21 he came to New York City, but had terrific problems. He wanted to talk to people, but didn't know how.

So, the plot of the story centers round a man, who didn't communicate with people, because of his inconfidence. As a result, he started inventing his own people in his own room and talking to them. Naturally that didn't last for long, later he wished "to touch actual flesh and bone people". However every conversation finished the same way - he told his companion to leave him forever, thus again and again getting lonely.

So, the problem tackled by the author is the following - man possesses the qualities, which the god gave him, and despite all reasonable and unreasonable efforts - he wouldn't see what is not written in his fate.

Lots of facts prove that: "In his own mind he planned to go to Paris and to finish his art education among the masters there, but that never turned out.", "… he was always a child and that was a handicap to his worldly development", "He never grew up and of course he couldn't understand people and he couldn't make people understand him.", "The child in him kept bumping …"

In those sentences we see the arguments of his always being the same, the way god created him. All this drives us to the idea, conveyed by the author, sounding like this - man can't live in isolation, if he can, that will bring him nowhere.

Enoch was a dynamic character. And despite that, all stumbling blocks and life handicaps didn't manage him to alter something in his life to become different himself. Lack of intercourse made him invent his own people. What counts here is the fact that he has come to the place where he started. Surely a lot changed in his inner world, but it didn't affect the result. He got lonely. So, we can safely consider this idea true.

Another sentence "…before he became confused and disconcerted by the facts of life, Enoch went about a good deal with young men." It's another argument, proving that out of isolation he was rather an ordinary man (without his cockroaches in the head - if I may say so). So, the internal conflict of the hero is present all along the story and is seen in his attitude towards the world and people.

It comes as no surprise that Enoch's room plays a vital symbolic role in the story. It was his dearest place and he had no desire to let anyone in: "The room in which young Robinson lived …was long and narrow like a hallway. The story of Enoch is in fact the story of a room almost more than the story of a man." He talked to people and then chose those, who would go with him to the end of that long room. In any suitable case he used it as a fortress from the rest mankind: "…Enoch crept off to his room trembling and vexed", "…he got into the habit of locking the door." With the help of inversions the author stressed the significance of the room: "And so into the room in the evening came young Enoch's friends", "Into the room he went and locked the door", "In she came and sat down beside me…", "Out she went through the door…"

As well many cases of repetition are used by Sherwood Anderson to show the fuss of life and insignificance of everything, except the hero and his life in his room: "…they talked and talked with their heads rocking from side to side", "There is something else, something you don't see at all, something you aren't intended to see", "It's a woman you see… It's a woman…", "He began to think that enough people had visited him, that he didn't need people any more", "I was afraid… I was terribly afraid…", "what a big thing I was… how important I was".

The text itself is told in the 3rd person narrative, and we feel the author's constant and considerate presence, sometimes giving us prompts: "It's important to get that fixed in your mind.", "They were made, I suppose, out of real people…", "Of course something did happen. That's why he went back to live in Winesburg and why we know about him. The thing that happened was a woman."

The narration is interlaced with descriptive passages. For example, the passage describing the rainy weather: "It rained when the two met and talked … It rained and little puddles of water shone under the street lamps… In the woods … water dripped from the black trees…" The author included it, intensifying the effect of the night, emphasizing the dramatic mood, when Enoch Robinson told his story to George Willard.

The composition of the story is not complicated. The introduction lets us enter in the course of the events and acquaints us with the characters. An account of events goes on to describe Enoch's life after moving to New York City. The culminating point comes in the sentence "A look came into her eyes and I knew she did understand." In the denouement George Willard listened to Enoch's story till the end and went away, hearing the old man's whimpering and complaining voice.

So, was Enoch Robinson happy or not? I guess he wasn't, because it's uneasy to be happy when you can't find the common language with other people, can't say your own word, and enjoy intercourse with people invented by your imagination.
