Characterization is very important because it shows us little clues of a character that eventually make up a bigger picture. In the stories ‘Two Kinds’ and ‘Rice and Rose Bowl Blues’, and through the literary device of characterization, the reader is able to identify and analyze the theme, follow your heart. In both of these stories, we see similar themes where young girls are rebelling
This mood was not consistent throughout the entire novel, due to the fact that Suze changes as a person, as well as many other changes in the book. The overall mood of the novel showed that the author’s ideas and direction of the book was to simply give a realistic story that showed what life was like for some people during this time. My final opinion of The Green Glass Sea is that it’s a good story if you’re interested in things related to the past. Things that occur in this book can definitely be relevant to the life we know, therefore this book could be an enjoyable and entertaining read for just about anyone. To conclude, I would recommend this novel, because we see many different kinds of things going on such as science, history, bullying, growing up and
Renowned author, Louise Erdrich, seamlessly portrays the duality of her characters as well as their struggles with identity in her novel, The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse. By doing so, she creates a relatable story that connects with her readers, which therefore allows for a total immersion into the story as her characters are so strongly developed. These unique identities of Erdrich’s characters seem to live within them like a natural portion of their existence. For example, even a minor character like Arnold “The Actor” Anderson depicts a double-edged personality as he is described to have a captivating air about him, yet he is a callous killer. Next, the dichotomy seen through Sister Leopolda is much more intense and multifaceted than say of Nanapush or Mary Kashpaw.
While Maria’s story helps the audience understand events and circumstances she went through and how she felt, but the readers didn’t truly get any powerful imagery of what she was seeing. Greg’s anecdote does help readers be able to see through his eyes as if they were their own eyes, and also understand the events that are playing out in the story. Moreover, Greg’s story doesn’t just help the audience understand certain events but also be able to walk through events in his shoes. In addition, Greg is able to do this by writing with an almost life-like description that compares to certain objects and imagery that explains exactly he is
When first reading “Short Talks”, it can be difficult to understand Anne Carson’s purpose of writing this piece of literature. At first, people reading “Short Talks” might wonder if there were missing pieces throughout the whole text; they might have also pondered if the sections within the text actually fit together in some way. A clearer picture of “Short Talks’ is painted once it is analyzed and considered with great thought. With the use of Carson’s cyclical images and persistent use of historical facts in fiction, the piece achieves a cohesive style that amalgamates the work. Throughout the collection of the short essays Anne Carson references many historical figures.
Symbolism is used differently in both works, nevertheless symbolism is an important part in the two texts. Shirley Jackson uses dialogue throughout the story to provide the background information to inform the readers what's going on. Without this craft move the problem of the story would be hard to recognize. Suzanne Collins uses dramatic irony to provide the readers background information. Lastly, Jackson uses inner thinking to get the readers predicting.
In the story Miss Brill, author Katherine Mansfield advances her theme “ isolation and loneliness can cause one to imagine distorted realities that they wish were true” through the use of action, third-person omniscient point-of-view, characterization, diction, and dialogue. Examples and proof of her techniques appear throughout the story in the textbook, The Bedford Introduction to Literature, although modern readers may find that few people in this world seem to be out of touch with reality and live their lives through their dreams like the character Miss Brill. While not enough evidence exists to suggest that Mansfield believes the theme she is “auctioning,” modern readers can take away, through the central character 's internal monologue,
The style of which the story is being written is both descriptive and quite colorful, for example, “Um-hmm!... Ain’t you got nobody home to tell you to wash your face?”(Hughes pg.1) Hughes also introduces some specific languages and styles of literary devices such as repetition, hyperboles, and interjection. He also uses an exaggeration when trying to make a point, for example, “She said, ‘You a lie!’”( Hughes pg.1 ). You can’t actually be a lie so this was very exaggerated and emphasized. Also, he appeals to the reader 's senses with his very simplicit style of writing.
The diction and tone in Woolf’s essay affects her message as it was melancholy and calm. The diction was clear and understandable to ensure that the audience could understand her message, rather than try and decipher large incoherent words. Woolf also uses many words with negative connotations, but takes a neutral attitude to the subject. At the beginning of the essay Woolf 's tone is very hopeful, but as the essay progresses it turns dark and somber. At the beginning Woolf used phrasing such as “ Pleasant morning” (Woolf 5) and “enormous energy of the world”(Woolf 24) .
This help the author be more believable in the essay. Telling each section in different perspective help this essay from being bias. Also this allowed the readers to connect with character but not only the author. Ascher is very effective in using personal experience to prepare the reader for her conclusion. The three stories were very different from one another and this allow Ascher to effectively express a universal definition of compassion and empathy.
