The two joint founder of Marxism are a German philosopher, Karl Marx, and a German sociologist Friedrich Engels. They called their economic theories as a Communism, not Marxism, and it is designated their belief in the state ownership rather than private ownership. Marxism aims to bring a classless society, based on the common ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange. Marxism’s philosophy is materialist, which means it tries to explain things without assuming the existence of a world, or of force beyond the natural worlds around us, and the society we live in. Where other philosophy seeks to understands the worlds, Marxism seeks to change the world. However, Marx and Engels never did put any comprehensive theory of literature. It was other Marxists that develop other theory like Leninist Marxist criticism, Engelsian Marxist criticism, and the present Marxist. Continue reading “Marxist Criticism”
The following post is going to analyze the poem entitled If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda, which is considered as one of the most popular love poem in literature. This poem was published in a collection of Neruda’s poem entitled Captain Verses in 1952, although there is no way of knowing the exact year when the poem was written, many believe that it is most likely written between 1948-1952 while he was an exile. What interesting about this poem is that many critics believed it is not just a poem Neruda wrote to a lover, but they believe this poem is also intended for Neruda’s homeland, Chile, which the timing is perfect since it is believed that he wrote this poem while he was an exile in Europe, away from his home. However, this time it is going to be analyzed as a love poem. The elements that will be analyzed are the structure, the sound patterns, and also the meaning of the poem.

Due to prevent exam leaks internet access will be cut off nationwide on Tuesday, May 30 ahead of a scheduled national examination that was due to take place in the country until June 8.
Hundreds of thousands of students will take the tests throughout the Horn of Africa country with Grade 10 exams taking place from May 31 until June 2, and Grade 12 tests from June 5 until June 8.
You know that this is not the first time the Horn of Africa nation shut down social media outlets to prevent exam leakages. Last year, in July 2016, the social networking sites (like Facebook, Twitter, and Viber) were blocked after university entrance exam questions were posted online. Most students were distracted by rumors of the leaks, although it was absolutely not true. Students who should have been in the business of studying were wasting too much time.
This event is just a “temporary measure”, the shutdown is aimed at preventing a repeat of leaks that occurred last year, we are being proactive. We want our students to concentrate and be free of the psychological pressure and distractions that this brings, because the exams are extremely important for a student’s academic and professional career.

In the most common literary application, a comedy is a fictional work in which the materials are selected and managed primarily in order to interest and amuse us: the characters and their discomfiture engage our pleasurable attention rather than our profound concern, we are made to feel confident that no great disaster will occur, and usually the action turns out happily for the chief characters. (According to M. H. Abrams)
Comedy is the other major dramatic genre besides tragedy. It is a drama chiefly written to amuse its audience, with characters mostly taken from everyday life, (as opposed to tragedy, where they are superior to us in character or social standing) and a plot usually ending happily. In the Middle Ages this term simply meant a story ending in happiness, and was seen as the complementary of tragedies, the two together making up the wheel of fortune, a major symbol of human fate.
