George Orwell (the pen name) - Animal Farm His original name is Eric Arthur Blair. In addition, he was a journalist as well. His representative works are “Animal Farm” and “The Year 1984”. In “Animal Farm”, he exhibited lots of satires on real people in Russia. He used allegories a lot, so this work is much more humorous than all the previous works of him. A number of copies of this novel sold out in anticommunist nations such as the United States and South Korea. “The Year 1984” has been a classic since publication. Since he loved to be simple while living, he described the predicted near future which simple lives are totally deprived by portraying the jeopardy of Totalitarianism in a shocking way. He writes his plots in predictable ways in many cases when his works are based on true stories. Ernest Hemmingway - The Old Man and the Sea This author is a ball of fire, so he portrays all the main characters in behaviorally-oriented ways. Additionally, he wrote two of his most representative works, “A Farewell to Arms” and “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, based on his personal experiences in both World Wars and Spanish Civil War. One of the other representative works of him is “The Old Man and the Sea” which contributed him to receive a Nobel Prize for literature in 1954. He fully showed expressing minute details of incidents happening consecutively for hours would be possible. However, some people may criticize some parts of his works are extremely monotonous, so some readers can resist reading more or skip at least several pages. Nathaniel Hawthorne – The Great Stone Face This author displayed a lot of philosophical thoughts very well. Therefore, lessons are reflected on lots of parts in his work. I agree with one of his points which doing continuous self-examination raises great values of humans much more than possessing unknown wealth and superior social status.
