Temporal Aspect

This work is characterized mainly by temporal discontinuity, the authors or what is the same, the narrator, doesn’t tell his history or biography of a chronological way it goes bouncing in time.

 In the work are three stages: which children begin to narrate ten years, adolescence, who lives with his old childhood friends, and just when she has to leave to study at the university, and finally the maturity, since it becomes an adult until his time in reality.

To sum up, all this makes the reader confused and at the same time do a more complex reading.



To conclude the work of the second paper said that thanks to the analysis of hypertext “Foward Anywhere” I have known a new method of reading with many more prospects, because I hadn’t known previously how to define a hypertext.

Lastly, I think that this particular hypertext despite being a fun way to read, the readings have became a bit difficult,  but overall I liked the work.


Hypertext is a term that I have known or rather I have known how to use thanks to the work, oddly enough readings of works by hypertexts are more enjoyable, because you can make reading more jumps.

I would define the term “hypertext” by definition:

Hypertext is a text that can be found on the Internet which can be read linearly and readers don’t have to do a reading according to parameters established, it can choose between a term or concept or another according to their tastes and preferences and also served by a system of links to jump from one document to another .


In this part I would like to do an overview of the work, because at first I found it a bit complex when I read because the authors didn’t  follow a chronological order, and are jumping at the time, in this work we  could emphasize  the descriptions made in their stories and especially the plenty of both positive and negative adjectives.


I hope that this J.S. Mill work  helps you as information on this English author of the XIX century.

Finally, I would also like to give the importance it has has this “first paper” as we have known how to use hyperlinks, and at the same time as sift out information when we were working with our topic.


When I had to choose between different authors, I decided to work on J.S. Mill because  I found it quite interesting because of his interesting life, regarding its three most important aspects throughout his life as a philosopher, as a politician and finally as an economist. Apart from that you can also observe a long list of publications, as well as their important studies.

Lastly, in this chronology you can see organized all important facts and publications J.S. Mill’s life.
