Usually they require some sort of contextual understanding, such as through maintained literary analysis. More commonly one can see that many authors include the epigraphs for second-time readers (or third, etc. ), because when you already know the story it would be easier to appreciate the references. In The Last Flight of the Flamingo, the epigraphs are predominantly made up of sayings. Some of them are credited as being specific to Tizangara, in other words established to be fictional, while others are presented as real-world proverbs.
After an incident with Gregor leaving his room while Grete is playing the violin for their parents and for the boarders, Grete tells her parents, “Things can’t go on like this. Maybe you do not realize it, but I do. I will not pronounce the name of my brother in front of this monster, and so all I say is we must try and get rid of it. We’ve done everything humanly possible to take care of it; I don’t think anyone can blame us at the least” (1187). She continues this conversation and ends up crying, wanting to get rid of Gregor to end this suffering that they have been enduring for way too long.
Adichie gave examples of how people can reach conclusions so quickly just by knowing one side of the story. Adichie discusses to her audience how misjudgment can be tricky and easy to do but she also explains to her audience that they should learn more about a certain story than to only knowing one side of it. Chimamanda believes that when telling a story; always talk about the failures and the success of it, not to choose one side. And in this case, people will always have different understandings about a certain story. Also Adichie explains to her audience how culture can define one’s identity.
The film almost seemed to portray the death of the first girl, the one with the basket of yellow plums, as an accident. It was as if Grenouille was trying to stop her screaming with his hand over her mouth, and then suddenly realised she was dead. In the book, I definitely got the sense that it was deliberate, and that he killed her entirely because he wanted to possess her scent, but it disappeared because he had no means to preserve it. This was what motivated him to train as a perfumer and learn how to preserve scents, so he could set about recreating hers through the scents of other murdered virgins (who are also much younger in the book, around thirteen years old). As far as I could tell reading the book, there was absolutely nothing sexual about it.
Maybe he would do something crazy, like crash the car on purpose to get back at her, or fall asleep and run the car into an irrigation ditch. And it would be her fault.” Maria thinks that it is her fault that her family could get hurt because she angered her father before they left since she wanted to act mature and stay home by herself. She feels like it is all her fault if her family gets injured because she made a fuss over staying home. As well as this, Soto also says, “...she was riddled with guilt, since it was she who would have disturbed her father and made him crash.” Maria has the impression that it is her fault that her father got angry and could hurt their family. She thinks that her father would hurt his family to get revenge on her for not wanting to going on the family
I read a vast array of novels including The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and Guardians of Ga’Hoole by Kathryn Lasky which were fictional stories. I was inspired by how the authors of these texts were able to create an imaginary world in which they were able to create empathy between the audience and the narrator. I wrote a fictional short story because I wanted to give the audience access to a world they would never know themselves; a fantasy. Additionally, I have written my short story in first person.
Uncle Clem’s vase indicates the outcomes of Cecilia and Robbie’s love, considering they break the vase the day they discover their love for each other, signifying their love would not be forever. Moreover, it is later revealed that the mended vase had “simply come away” in Betty’s hand (pg. 279), foreshadowing their death revealed by Briony in the epilogue of the novel. The vase also symbolises the lost love between the Tallis family whose strong relationships were shattered, just like to the vase. Cecilia wanted to “comfort her sister” as ”it would have suited her better,” but Briony began to develop complex emotions that Cecilia could no longer comprehend (pg.
