Keyword: Anger ab 48.99 € als Taschenbuch: Compared Analysis of John Osborne's play Look Back in Anger and Alan Sillitoe's short story 'The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner'.. Aus dem Bereich: Bücher, Wissenschaft, Sprachwissenschaft,
During my studies at the university college I got acquainted with many works of British Literature. This book deals with those two that I chose to write about in my final year. It contains a compared analysis that is based on the contemporary situation of the society seen and experienced by the two authors in Great Britain in the 1950s. The play- Look Back in Anger- as well as the short story -'The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner'- brought something new and unusual, let's say something out of the ordinary, for the people of Britain in many ways. In my work I point out some differences and similarities between the two productions from various aspects, such as the attitude of working-class people towards the upper classes. There is also a chapter about how anger as a negative emotion is metaphorically reflected in the pieces. I tried to look at the two works from a pedagogical point of view as well and created two lesson plans with some exercises which can be built into the syllabus and used by teachers of English as a Foreign Language.
