The analysis of the two stories will attempt to generalize what elements of real and fantastic are in most, if not all of “lo real maravilloso.” Before we analyse how magical and real elements are used in short stories, we first need to point out the definition of this literary style. Magical realism was first coined by German Franz Roh in 1925 to refer to a style of painting. Later, Alejo Carpentier took the term and expanded on it thanks to his early influences of surrealism. Carpentier was in fact was not satisfied by his poor contribution to surrealism, so he took ideas from the literary approach. The South American termed the new literary style as “lo real maravilloso.” Even up to now, there is still no agreement on a clear definition of what exactly defines a story as magical realism.
How does it affect the reading experience? Why did Wiesel make that specific choice?) Please use a different type of figurative language for each example. Night contains what seems like a multitude of examples of figurative language, but for this question I had to narrow it down to three. I ended up choosing one example of a Simile, Metaphor, and Hyperbole.
Symbolism In Red Death Symbolism has taken form as an object, person, or situation that can represent a different meaning other than its literal meaning. It can be personal, emotional, physical, mental, memorable, or something with significant importance described to the reader. In many works done by Edgar Allen Poe, he expresses symbolism in his writing to let readers think about the things he included in his stories and what they mean. In the following story “Masque of The Red Death,” Poe uses symbolism with the colors of the rooms, the masquerade, the clock, and the red death to express how life leads to death. In the beginning of the story, Poe writes detailed descriptions about each room where the blue room is farthest to the east,
For this essay I had to read several short stories that showed examples of realism and regionalism and from those stories I had to pick six of them and talk about them in this article showing how two of them were more realism, two that were more regionalism and two that were both equally realism and regionalism, however before talking about the stories I must tell you what is regionalism and realism. Well regionalism is a certain way the setting is described so that you know its in a certain place. It could mention a place, the scenery or even a unique thing the place has that nothing else has. Realism is the way the story is written to make it feel real like a disaster or describing something in detail to feel like your their in the person 's shoes. Now that you understand realism and regionalism we can now start the discussion of the stories I analyze for realism and regionalism.

Most of elements in the story, the context of story, the characters’ personality and the features of objects have their own respective symbolic meanings.

One of the central plots in Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness is Marlow’s attachment to Mr. Kurtz. There are several suggestions in Marlow’s character and narrative that give us insight to the possible reasons that may have resulted in his strange and ironic attachment to Kurtz. The focus of this essay will be on Marlow’s style of narration and his representation of Kurtz. These central issues will be dealt with through the lenses of three core traits that Marlow exhibits which are curiosity, perceptiveness and adventurousness. I will argue that Marlow and Mr. Kurtz become agents in each other’s lives through Marlow’s attachment to Kurtz and explore how the narrative suggests the emergence of modernist ideals.

In the three passages written by Poe (The Masque of the Red Death, The Tell-Tale Heart, and The Cask of Amontillado), their settings contribute to their mood and to their tone. Poe chose the settings of his passages very wisely. He always thought about how they would affect the story and what role they would play in the reader 's understanding of the mood and/or the tone. The setting in each of these passages is different, However they are also somewhat alike. So the mood and the tone of the three passages (The Masque of the Red Death, The Tell-Tale Heart, and The Cask of Amontillado) have similar aspects, however they also have some different ones, simultaneously.
