His writing ranges from lyrical aurete to forthright. Junger incorporates the Frame Story literary device with the intention of organizing several similar stories and revealing the connections at the end. Junger also uses flashback to reveal background, foreshadowing to provide suspense where it’s lacking and convey information that gives readers that “Ah ha!” feeling later in the text after all is revealed, and personification to add life. Junger cannot be entirely sure of the final moments of Andrea Gail and her crew and tries his best to speculate and draw reasonable conclusions without assumption. With this obstacle in mind, Junger writes this story not about the Romantic action of man against a terrible force of nature but about the lives taken by the storm and the lives that loss has affected.
Those reading and learning about hip are inadvertently not hip. But, John Leland in a way goes against his own warning. He creates a literary historical study that provides the ignorant with knowledge about a past that was unbeknowst to most. In american society now, it is incredibly common for individuals to go about life not knowing about the past. Leland teaches the reader what it means to be hip so they can walk away knowing about the consequences, results, and the actions that determined these cultural high points.
The plot has very weird twists and endings. While I cannot reveal the ending of the book I can still explain why the author chose to do what he did. The author made references to the Trojan horse. But instead it is a droll wheelbarrow like machine. In my opinion the author did this because the battle wasn’t going anywhere interesting, unless he wanted to write about an entire battle siege which usually lasts hours or even days.
Junot Diaz begins his book with an epigraph by Sandra Cisneros in which it states : Okay, we didn’t work, and all memories to tell you the truth aren’t good. But sometimes there were good times.
Conflict is one of the most basic elements of natural human behavior. Conflict, from a literary standpoint, serves its purpose to create tension within a story, which as a result keeps readers interested and engaged. Whether the conflict is with another person, with nature, or within yourself, it is ubiquitous and unavoidable. In Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage, the struggles that Henry faces help to give depth and meaning to the story, as well as develop Henry as a character.
Unlike other trifle characters in the story, What if the protagonist, Guy Montag, never met Clarisse, Beatty, and Faber Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451? Clarisse, Beatty, and Faber are the main reasons why the novel has depth. These characters are essential to the story because they make the story more interesting and suspenseful. Each character has a particular purpose in why they have written and how they each impact the main character. At first all the characters were not close and they where impersonal with each other as the book goes on they started to get personal with each other and started to have an impact with montag.
This said blindness is presented on many different levels, from the pure ignorance of Zorbach of the plot development to the ride the reader is taken on with a sense of foreboding but no real clues of what will happen. The author uses repetition to great effect in the epilogue and prologue, in an effort to create the haunting effect of what could have been should Zorbach have realised the implications of his actions. The interchanging of third person and first person narration, however, is what allows all the plot devices to flow together in the making of the “perpetuum
In 1959 when it was released the novel read unlike anything that had come before it. The novel was a real attack on the reader’s imagination and morals showing the reader page after page images and scenes the reader would have never even considered to be possible. It is this full on attack on the reader in every possible way that makes the novel such an interesting one. The language and structure make it very difficult to even get properly started reading the novel and the reader really has to endure and figure out how to make some kind of meaning from the book. Burroughs does not insult the reader by giving any real explanations for anything that happens during the novel, rather he gives the reader the freedom to seek meaning from the wild chapters.
Tim O’Brien never lies. While we realise at the end of the book that Kiowa, Mitchell Sanders and Rat Kiley are all fictional characters, O’Brien is actually trying to tell us that there is a lot more truth hidden in these imagined characters than we think. This suggests that the experiences he went through were so traumatic, the only way to describe it was through the projection of fictional characters. O’Brien explores the relationship between war experiences and storytelling by blurring the lines between truth and fiction. While storytelling can change and shape a reader’s opinions and perspective, it might also be the closest in helping O’Brien cope with the complexity of war experiences, where the concepts like moral and immorality are being distorted.
In the book, citizens have no idea about what is “truly” happening around them because of their censoring government. The author warns people not to allow the government to take full control. This ties up to the McCarthy censorship. US senator, Joseph McCarthy, made unfair allegations and Bradbury wanted to indict this with his book. He condemned about the investigations on communists in Hollywood by the House Un-American Activities Committee(Weller, 2013).
Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn is a novel in which Dunn entertains his reader while trying to bring out bigger points. His message is evidently shown throughout the whole book. The points that Dunn wants to address in his book are that we as individuals are lacking critical thinking, language and communication and that consequences can come with it. Mark Dunn uses the epistolary genre, which is a style of writing comprised of letters, and by doing so he makes reading the book more personal, for the reader is reading letters in which the characters talk in first person, revealing more than any other genre would. All the while Dunn uses his ability to play with letters to show the reader about how language can be fun, manipulated and extremely
He does this at the beginning of his novel by using the men he actually fought alongside with as his characters. The outcome is that it is difficult to know regardless of whether any given occasion in the stories genuinely happened to O’Brien. O 'Brien 's position in mixing certainty and fiction is to make the point that just simply telling your war story is the ultimate objective. O 'Brien is endeavoring not to compose a past filled with the Vietnam War but instead to examine the ways that speaking about war experience connects a soldier and their audience. The diverse storytellers in The Things They Carried, Rat Kiley and Mitchell Sanders especially, notwithstanding O 'Brien, work to lay out war 's monstrous truths, which are profound to the point that they require neither realities nor long clarifications.
Considering the many different literary devices used in creating writing, I have chosen several distinct elements, setting, theme, point of view and characterization. These particular devices are essential elements in my toolkit. As a realistic fiction writer the four elements serve a purpose and together they should craft an interesting story. As a result, my first important foundational tool is setting.
One of the key principles that make the country great is our freedom to say, write, and read whatever we want. Despite this, countless public figures and schools have chosen to restrict access to certain books, whether it’s in order to protect political correctness or explicit sexual content and violence. Rarely do these people stop and consider the dire effects book banning might have on both students and society as a whole. An author does not write because they are looking to offend someone, they right because they have a story to share. The First Amendment of the Constitution not only works to protect this right to the fullest extent possible, but also serves to protect the rights of the people that choose to be offended by these stories.
The short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr takes place in the futuristic setting of 2081. Vonnegut harshly criticizes society's morals and values and also uncovers the corrupt truth of what it would be like if individuality and uniqueness were forbidden. “Harrison Bergeron” explores the possibility of too much power placed in the government's hands. In this society, those who are better than others are given handicaps in order to maintain the peace and create equality amongst the population. The handicapping is seen to be absolutely necessary in order to prevent rivalries also known as the “dark ages”(1) from happening again.
