After all, the narrator “began to piece together this version of the story” through information given to him by Ethan Frome. Of course Zeena appears to be the epitome of the quintessential antagonist. It is only natural that bias was introduced, for Ethan would certainly not paint himself in a negative light, and due to his infatuation with Mattie, she too is spared from any condemnation. Through no fault of Ethan Frome or the narrator, the narrator’s “piecing together” of Ethan Frome’s life is incredibly unreliable and it is incredibly subjective. Unless a reader mulls over the effects of utilizing certain types of narration, Zeena will forever be seen as the villain of the story.
Depending on the how the story was written, the interpreted ending could possibly be better than the ending that the author could have written to begin with. This happened when Frank Stockton wrote The Lady or the Tiger. He created this story with the intent of leaving the resolution out in order to force the reader to create their own ending. Through characterization in any story the reader can get a sense of a character through indirect and direct characterization. Stockton used characterization throughout The Lady or the Tiger and that is how the reader can complete the story on their own and feel complete rather than incomplete without the ending being in the story.
Wendell Berry begins the text by presenting the readers a clear title which principally sets the setting and over all gives the readers a thought of what the content will be about. In the first paragraph, Berry presents his argument by reviewing the topic 's two contradicting groups : the individuals who coexist with nature and other people who don 't. Berry decides to concentrate on the significance of the two groups and their differences and avoids voicing his own opinion. Then again, his comment on the perils of the contradicting groups clarifies the significance of the topic at hand and is fundamentally a persuasive element which induces the reader’s interest and persuades them to continue reading the text. The text is written with diction that a great majority of readers will have the ability to comprehend.
I broke off my meditation. I couldn't go on. There was something pulling me back” (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, 2000.) The citizen described by Aristotle is a member of the polis. The polis is particularly important in defining the citizen because it is what allows self-sufficiency.
“Popular Mechanics” uses a very real problem with stock characters to allow the reader to fill in the blank of what is happening based off of their own views/experiences. This means that when the reader tries to understand what is happening it will be different for each person. The story uses such a real problem filled with characters we can not relate to and know nothing about, and uses figurative language and other literary devices to hide the truth of the story. It is up to the reader to interpret the story how they understand it. The plot of this story is very important to this story, and what is missing from the plot.
The issue of keeping exotic pets such as a tiger or chimpanzee has been a contentious topic with animal activists up in arms over the issue. All of us love pets and we limit it to regular pets while some of us have extended their love of pets to animals like chimpanzees and tigers. Before considering taking a chimpanzee or a tiger as a pet, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of keeping them as pets. According to the Schuppli, and Fraser, it is estimated that, an average of 3.5 people die from attacks from exotic people (360). For this reason, people should not be allowed to keep exotic animals like chimpanzees or tigers.
She points out that sometimes the best art cannot be described in terms of language or symbols. Sontag finds value in “works whose surface is so unified and clean, whose movement is so rapid, whose address is so direct that the work can be… just what it is” (8). Maybe this is the ultimate goal of both Daisies and Possession. Not to make a film that female sexuality in a way that is understandable and describable to a system in which it can never fully be understood. The films aim to address it in a way in which it can be felt.
As an interesting note, Gombrich reminds us that artists sometimes intend to convey particular message but because their work of art lacks the context, caption and code, are unable to convey it which might lead to what seems like a wrong interpretation. However, these “wrong” interpretations do not go against the artist work and hence it only “speaks against the equation of art with communication” (p. 64) which happens to be acceptable. I believe that this holds true because only by identifying different perceptions of an image can we completely exploit the potential of an
Suspense is the intense feeling that an audience goes through while waiting for the outcome of certain events. (Literary Devices, 2017) Suspense basically leaves the reader holding their breath and wanting more information and the crucial information are often revealed is suspense. In The Tiger, the readers were left to wonder why the tiger did not attack Fatimah who was vulnerable since the readers were not acknowledged the fact the tiger was pregnant similar to Fatimah. This fact was only brought to light at the ending of the story where the youth shared the information of newborn tiger cubs with Fatimah and her mother. The vital information of tiger’s pregnancy was revealed in a manner of shock and sympathy by the
Raymond Carver captures readers’ interest by making assumptions because he doesn’t include every detail. He creates the suspense when he makes a tone and depth in the story. For instance at the beginning, the reader must already guess who the mother is writing
