Abstract

Modernist writers like Woolf and Morrison not only present (or represent) reality but they create a linguistic representation of the inner experiences borne in the modern life and one of those characteristics is the confusion of time and place. This article analyses the narrative technique of Morrison’s Sula and Woolf’s The Mark on the Wall which use a language to deform and de-structure the reader’s rational way of thinking where they have to play in the confusion with the writers.
