English The Wall - Analysis p. 211 (second paragraph) – p. 213 The novel "The Wall" written by John Lanchester and published by Faber & Faber in year 2019 is about a person named Kavanagh in a troubled world which represents our own world in the future. He has to spend two years on the Wall that separates them from the outside world to defend it. After an attack from the people outside of the Wall called "The Others", he and some other people are banned. They have to go off the Wall and live on the Sea, where after a long time they find small rafts with some inhabitants. The pages to be analyzed here is from page 211 till page 213. In this part of the book he lives as I explained in the introduction on rafts, where he and Hughes have to dive in the cold water for food (p. 211, 1. 17), because they don't have any supermarkets or else there. First both of them try to find a good place where they can dive for something edible (p. 212, 11. 1). After they find a good spot, Kavanagh decides to do the first dive. He collects some things he finds in there, knowing that he could die any...

time because of the cold. On these pages there is no rising action, climax or oth plot elements. In that case little part of the book is for the reader really boring and it's maybe a kind of a quiet phase for the storyline. The author wants to show the reader that the protagonist is no longer afraid and pushes himself to his limits to help his group members and that he wants to give a good impression to the Others. For the Setting there are different parts. As I said before Kavanagh isn't on the Wall anymore, but now he is on small rafts surrounded by the sea. On the one side Kavanagh is on the rafts, on the other side he is underwater (p. 213, 11. 5). It's like he is in two different worlds. Under water you can't see much, hear anything, you don't have to talk to other people and it's kind of relaxed. But when you get out of the water again, you are confronted with reality. You can also say that he describes the cold on the sea as a different kind of cold as in the chapters before. The first cold is when he lives his life far away from the Wall and the sea, but the second cold is when he has to go on the Wall as a Defender. And the last and worse type of the cold is outside of the Wall on the Sea where he has to dive in cold water (p. 211, l. 21). 1 English You can easily see that Kavanagh is a round and dynamic character, which is probably because he is the protagonist of this novel. But the narrator is rather descriptive than emotional, he doesn't talk much about his feelings, more about the things around him. He's also very smart in this book. This shows a section on page 211, where he says that they only dive one or two times this day and that they better do some research first and not just dive where they can't see anything and don't know if there is something useful, they can use (p. 211, Il. 22). That also shows that the protagonist is very thoughtful about different things. Another point which also shows that the protagonist is clever is that after he dives for the seaweed, he decides to bring a knife with them the next time to get it off better. (p. 213, Il. 12) He also isn't shy or scared of what is in the sea. Furthermore, if he wants something, he says it, what you can see on page 212, line 14 where he wants to dive first and tells Hughes what he wants. On the following page while he dives, Kavanagh finds something in between the moss and, instead to be afraid what it could be, he takes it and pushes back up (p. 213, ll. 17). When he is in the water, he says that he feels free and unburdened (p. 213, 1. 5) or that he has no thoughts, "only the sensation of complete, stinging, icy cold” (p. 212, 1. 24). Kavanagh use the alliteration "Slightly shallower" to describe that the sea isn't as deep as ex- pected (p. 212, 1. 8). Where the water is now used to be land years before, but it has been flooded the elevated water level. And because of the use of an alliteration, it not only catches the reader's attention, but also makes him, in a sense, clever. Another stylistic device is the Anaphora which Kavanagh uses to highlight and enumerate. For example, he says "We took turns [...]. We could always have started by diving in […]. We'd manage one or two dives [...].” (p.211, 1. 19 ff.). He doesn't use the word "I", rather he talks about the whole group of them. In conclusion I can say that this part of the novel is very boring and maybe should fill the gap, but the author tries to catch the attention of the reader using stylistic devices. The author wants to show the reader that Kavanagh changes compared to the earlier Kavanagh. He isn't selfish and thinks only for himself, but as a part of his group and of course a part of the Others now. 2
