If I may , I want to open a discussion thread about :
"Dead End in Norvelt" by Jack Gantos
Let me introduce myself :
I am Rheza Arief.
Currently studying in UNESA English Literature on the 7th semester.
I am currently on seminar course. And I am going to come up with the discussion of "Dead End in Norvelt" by Jack Gantos.
The main discussion that I seek is whether Jackie's character in the novel
is currently seeking his Self Identity by showing his Existentialism through a Subjective Autentication from his Imagination or not.
The thing is , I wondered whether an Imaginational progress that happens in a novel can be considered as an analysis.
Because as I saw from this novel, Jackie's character show his existence by doing whatever he wants from his imagination.
Perhaps I'll give a brief example in the spoiler
Spoiler for contain spoiler of the story:
I will be glad to get a response here
If u need the PDF files of the Novel you can PM me for the copy
Any other discussion regarding the novel might be considered as I mainly project this novel as my Thesis analysis
