Homework Help: I updated my intro paragraph, is it better?

Posted by PaRpAt on Monday, April 7, 2008 at 3:41pm.

Salman Rushdie, the author of Midnight’s Children, and Arundhati Roy, the author of The God of Small Things, both employ similar writing styles in their respective novels. Midnight’s Children is a story about Saleem Sinai, the protagonist of the novel, who was coincidentally born at the exact moment of India’s independence. Saleem’s life then parallels the changing fortunes of India as he explores “the power to read minds and telecommunicate over the nation with other children born at that same moment” (Lana, InternetSite) through Rushdie’s rich vocabulary and distinct writing style. The God of Small Things starts in present day, but then reflects back to the tragic reasons why the family of the main characters’, Estha and Rahel, are so unhappy. Both of the novels, being classified in the genre of magical-realism, tend to have similar literary techniques implemented in them. The authors’ use of idiosyncratic capitalizations, personification, and elaborate similes keep the narration exciting, managing to keep the plot morally strenuous, as well as imaginatively supple.


Please give advice if needed. This is the intro paragraph for a 10 page paper that's due tomorrow. It is critical.
