Elizabeth and Joss were cousins, best friends and Olympic gymnastic hopefuls.

But around the girls' 13th birthdays, the two families made a road trip in which an accident took the lives of Elizabeth and Myrlie's husband. Bethany's mom, who was driving, always blamed herself for the crash. After that, Bethany's parents left town. Myrlie hadn't seen or heard from them in years, until the night they left Bethany with her. Bethany is also shocked to learn that her father, whom she always believed to be some kind of money manager, used to be a doctor. Joss comes from St.

Louis to stay with Myrlie and Bethany. They watch old videos, and Bethany is struck by how much she looks like Elizabeth. They don't just resemble one another; it's as though they were twins.


During her time with her aunt and cousin, she discovers many ways in which she is similar to her dead sister. She also becomes increasingly aware the life she's been living is a lie. Her father sends a package containing several birth certificates for Bethany, all with different last names and cities of birth. Myrlie, Joss and Bethany can only speculate what Bethany's dad might have done for that cash or what kind of trouble he's in. Mom calls during one of her delusional episodes, creating more questions.

She calls Bethany "Elizabeth" and says Dad believes if they save enough of her cells, they can clone her. Now Bethany wonders if her mother's ravings could contain any truth.

Around the same time, a man in a car with out-of-town plates starts following Bethany. Another incoherent letter from Dad indicates someone who just got out of prison is chasing him and hunting him down, so he can't come back. Joss and Bethany read a news article about a man named Van Dyne who was imprisoned for stealing money.

His company was involved in cloning. Bethany recognizes the name of one of the fictitious employees through whom he supposedly filtered funds as an alias Dad had used. Bethany's parents secretly return to town, but Van Dyne discovers them.

For example, the vision could be somehow relaced to the drugs he takes. He hints at this idea himself when he wonders if he had remembered to take them 9. However, the reader is not tikety to question the realitY of the character's experience because of the matter-of-fact style of the narrative. Moreover, the character's emphasis on the truthfulness of his experience makes him a trustworthy,narrator: "rt was there alright, I hadn't imagined it," "I was sule of it," "I had seen the other head quite ciearly.

In Gothic stories you believe something that you see, even if it seems impossible. The sense of vision is given primary importance.

I understand'': In a culture which equates the 'real' with the 'visible' and gives rhe eye dominance'over the sense organs, the un-real is that which is in-visible. That which is not seen, or which threatens to be un-seeable, can oniy have a subversive function in relation to an epistemological and meta- physical system which makes 'I see' synonymous with 'I understand'. She is much less shy than she was to start with, and I have invited her to stay for as long as she wants.


She is stay- -? People used to believe that in the mirror you saw your soul. Vampires do not show in mirrors as they are soul-less.

It is in the mirror that Jekyll sees his transformation into Hyde. Alice goes through the looking-glass into another world, and the picture in The Pictare of Dorian Gray illustrates self as other Jackson This motif is used both by McCabe and Kay. As I pulled the switch-cord, the sudden bright light made my reflec- N tion jump out of the mirror at me. However, while in "The Host" the idea of multiple selves becomes visible s and palpable, in Kay's story the theme of the double is realized mostly on the.

How could you make yourself real? You could have knocked lrene over with a feather when I heard, she'd say to Sandra over the fence. Clearly, there is another repressed selfin Irene that is trying to take control: She could feel herself split. While the upper class maintained control over the political system, the working class was widely shut out of the political process. A social role is the behaviour within a social class.

One can meet the expectations of society, or one cannot. Social roles are often acquired in childhood, they are reflected in a person's identity, and cause an individual to act and react in a certain way, depending on the acquired schemata and, according to the social class an individual belongs to.

Social roles also determine what to do with experiences and hopes in life, how to understand what is right, obligations, and expected behaviour patterns associated with a particular social status. A main theme of the play is role -playing. This happens in so far that the protagonists claim to be socially engaged towards indigent people or pretend to be somebody else, with the only purpose to enjoy their freedom while at the same time meeting social expectations.

Wilde uses the concept of a dandy for both Algernon and Jack. Algernon as the nephew of Lady Bracknell is a well-established member of the upper class.

The pretence of his character Bunbury seems to be the most normal thing in his life, there are no signs of guilty conscience.

Algernon seems to be unfailing and to be right in every situation. Being a dandy, it was not he and his friends who emptied eight bottles of champagne but his butler. Worthing were dining with me, eight bottles of champagne are entered as having been consumed. Yes, sir; eight bottles and a pint.

I ask merely for information. Both identify themselves as "British gentlemen". Lanes views on marriage seem somewhat lax. They seem, as a class, to have absolutely no sense of moral responsibility.

It is a very ungentlemanly thing to read a private cigarette case. He is a judge of peace and a guardian, but he is also a foundling who was found in a hand bag at a train station. This fact has always been problematic to him, since he could not even present one parent. But the world of nobility he wished to enter demanded for parents, since nobility evolved from the old hereditary aristocracy whose members were gentlemen by right of birth.

The women Gwendolyn and Cecily are proper young ladies, self conscious, emancipated and support their individuality. They would probably be able to make their own way, since both have been well educated. But on the other side, their idealization of the name "Ernest" shows a narrow-mindedness which could result from a very protected childhood.

Both ladies have been raised by a governess, a guardian or a mother.

Lady Bracknell is a conservative Victorian lady and considered to be one of Wilde's most successful comic figures. She is " elegant, well-dressed, highly self-assured, She is very much concerned about being a perfect host for her friends, but little cares about any responsibility towards family and marriage.

Double Identity

It would put my table completely out. Your uncle would have to dine upstairs. Fortunately he is accustomed to that. That is not the destiny I propose for Gwendolen.

Algernon, of course, can choose for himself. To miss any more might expose us to comment on the platform. I dare not even suspect, Dr. I need hardly tell you that in families of high position strange coincidences are not supposed to occur.

They are hardly considered the thing. Worthing, I confess I feel somewhat bewildered by what you have just told me. To be born, or at any rate bred, in a hand-bag, whether it had handles or not, seems to me to display a contempt for the ordinary decencies of family life that reminds one of the worst excesses of the French Revolution. Worthing, to try and acquire some relations as soon as possible, and to make a definite effort to produce at any rate one parent, of either sex, before the season is quite over.

There are distinct social possibilities in your profile. The two weak points in our age are its want of principle and its want of profile. The chin a little higher, dear. Style largely depends on the way the chin is worn. They are worn very high, just at present. Well, I am really only eighteen, but I always admit to twenty when I go to evening parties. Upon what grounds may I ask?

Algernon is an extremely, I may almost say an ostentatiously, eligible young man. He has nothing, but he looks everything. What more can one desire? She is part of the family while at the same time being a servant. Supposedly because she did not fulfil the expectations of a governess, Miss Prism never returned home, and thus Lady Bracknell's behaviour about the presence of Miss Prism in Jack's house is justified. The butlers Lane and Merriman are also perfect examples of Victorian butlers in that they wittily antagonise their masters.

Lane seems to be equally dandyish as Algernon and parodies the type of Victorian butler whose mind is sharper than his master's - as we see in the very first lines of the play: ALGERNON.

Did you hear what I was playing, Lane? According to Longman's Dictionary of English Language and Culture, identity is defined as "who or what a particular person or a thing is" For a better understanding, more concepts of "identity" are necessary.

For a more philosophical approach, "identity" is described as "In personal identity the concern has been to determine whether anything in the body or mind remains constant; philosophers have reached no general agreement on this point.

The term identity has also become increasingly important in modern psychology, largely through the work of Erik Eriksson. He has used the term to designate a sense of self that develops in the course of a man's life and that both relates him to and sets him apart from his social milieu.


It has become a recognized result of social studies that people 's identity changes with social settings, social role and group behaviour mechanism In Algernon and Jack kinds of split personalities can be determined.

The term "split personality" is not to be seen in the medical sense of mental illness, since in such a case, the affected persons do not have control over their personalities. In the play both have consciously created their double identities and even cultivate them within the social environment and use them consciously as an alibi to escape any social obligations whenever they feel uncomfortable. Well, my name is Ernest in town and Jack in the country, and the cigarette case was given to me in the country.

Worthing, there is some error. I am afraid that the news I have to give you will not altogether please you. You are the son of my poor sister, Mrs.In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Part of her knew what she was doing and knew ir was bad; but the other part couldn't stop her" She wanted to go all the way.

I feel rather frightened.

It was seen as a divine gift, whereas in the 18th to 20th century names were seen more realistically. Characters[ edit ] 'Bethany Cole - The protagonist of the novel, Bethany is 12 years old at the beginning of the novel.

He studied at Trinity College, Dublin, and at Magdalene College, Oxford, where he was distinguished for his scholarship and wit, and also for his eccentricity in dress, tastes, and manners, which represented the opposite of the middle -class conformism: the dandy.
