Abstract [en]

In the first chapter (Pre-dilemma) a study of the main characters will be made referring to the impending expectation of crisis conveyed by the authors. This chapter will also deal with the possible influences that inspire a change of mind, since choice has to do with change. The second chapter (Dilemma) will then focus on the aspects of the dilemma itself, firstly in The Summer before the Dark and secondly in Hotel du Lac. Imagery being the most delicate and yet the most powerful instrument in the art of literature, whether used to convey settings or internal conflict, the aim of the second chapter is to illuminate the imagery involved to highlight the emotional stages leading up to a dilemma of choice. How the dilemma is resolved in both novels will also be considered he re along with various speculations regarding the evaluation of the final choice where the commentaries of different critics will be compared.
