  • 70.
  • 71. Fantasy and Prophecy<br />There is more in the novel than time or people or logic or any of their derivatives, more even than Fate. … I mean something that cut across them like a bar of light, that is intimately connected with them at one place and patiently illumines all their problems, and at another place shoots over or through them as if they did not exist. We shall give that bar of light two names, fantasy and prophecy.<br />Forster, 157<br />

  • 76.
  • 77. Pattern and Rhythm<br />That then is the disadvantage of a rigid pattern. …Beauty has arrived, but in too tyrannous a guise…To most readers of fiction the sensation from a pattern is not intense enough to justify the sacrifices that made it, and their verdict it “Beautifully done, but not worth doing.”<br />Forster, 234<br />
  • 78. Pattern and Rhythm<br />[Rhythm], which may be defined as repetition plus variation.<br />Forster, 240<br />
  • 79. Pattern and Rhythm<br />
  • 80. Pattern and Rhythm<br />
  • 81. Pattern and Rhythm<br />V Faces the government<br />
  • 82. Pattern and Rhythm<br />Sutler<br />
  • 83. Pattern and Rhythm<br />[Rhythm] not to be there all the time like a pattern, but by its lovely waxing and waning to fill us with surprise and freshness and hope.<br />Forster, 239<br />
  • 84.
  • 85. Conclusion<br />
  • 86. Conclusion<br />The story happens in the near future where an authoritarian government rules England.<br />People would rather live under the tyranny because they don’t want change in their life, and because they have a tendency to conform to others, so nobody starts a revolution.<br />
  • 87. Conclusion<br />V, as a symbol of revenge, using violence against violence, calls for a revolution.<br />V acts like a fuse, or a force to push the first domino. People starts to doubt the government.<br />V finally eliminates the government before he dies.<br />
  • 88. Conclusion<br />V is a product of fantasy, he represents an idea, not a person.<br />By separating V’s confrontation against the police and spreading it throughout the story, the novel achieves a rhythm which reveals the gradual change in people’s mind and allows readers to analyze between the intense plots.<br />
