Spread the love9          9SharesAn evocative love poem by Nilakshi for Different Truths. It was a year or two before That I felt that sense of being left out That abnegation… When the favourite colour of sky was what I started watching, cerulean … Less than dark at midnight Not quite as light as dusk When I lay awake beside youAs you turned […]

Spread the love16          16SharesMiss Havisham has much in common with Mrs. Joe, including a cold heart, blinding self-preoccupation, and a need for omnipotent control. They represent similar images of a narcissistic mother, brooding, hypochondriacal, and inattentive to the child’s needs.

Joe’s abandonment of Pip is less conspicuous than De Lacey’s desertion of the Frankenstein Creature, but both failures are […]
