Biographical Analysis In Dave Pelzer's A Man Named Dave
MetadataShow full item record
It is very common to understand that works of fiction share a number of general elements such as characters, plot, structure and theme. Fiction in terms of prose work or novel has a basis in describing situations which are similar to those that many human beings experience, know, or think. Even, fantasy, the creation of events that are dream-like or fantastic, is anchored in the real world, however remotely. This connection of art and life shows that literary work attempts to portray real human beings in realistic situation; to quote Roberts (1993: 50-1). The last line of the quoted statement above directs me to deal with the most obvious cause of a work of art that is its creator or the author. This thesis analyses biographical material related to a novel “A Man Named Dave” which was written by Dave Pelzer. It is clearly seen that the last word of the novel’s title is similar to the first name of the novelist. That is why I try to search the connection of real life-experience of the novelist to sequence of events of the novel in terms of biographical analysis.
