Although the couple talking to one another is a massive part of the story and what drives it, his word choice is very controlled with general language since he doesn’t give too much information about what’s going on outright. He also uses a very neutral and middle level of diction since it is just two characters going back and forth with each other. Hemmingway also uses a lot of connotations within the story as well since the whole discussion that is occurring has an underlying idea and message behind it that is more suggested than know like the idea of an unknown operation, there being an ‘it’ that being referred to and many more. Overall, Hills Like White Elephants is a deep and complex story that leaves you unsure about the faith of a relationship and characters themselves through a poorly communicated discussion. Hemmingway used many elements of fiction to allow readers to think deeper into the story than what’s on the
This casual expression already allows audiences to feel familiar with him. Similarly, the words he uses are rather simple and easy to understand. “big”, “beat”, “kill”, best” … You might think they are unimportant, but think harder. These one syllable yet powerful words do not require any thinking to understand and leave no space for interpretations; his messages are straightforward and simple yet strong. This allows people of any education level and backgrounds to understand his statements, which explains how he has support from the variety of people.
The Japanese standard of living is perfection that they live in an orderly manner strictly obeying Japan’s set of laws, rules and regulations in order that they can have a politically correct existence. They are the kind of people, whose life is devoted to serve and honor their country, enrich their culture and perpetuate their Shinto religion. This is the reason why Japan is thriving well. Shintoism is a syncretistic religion that embraces the philosophical truth of every religion; therefore Japanese is not against any religion or Christianity in particular. In fact Shinto has assimilated many Christian principles into its religious set of values and beliefs.
The short story doesn’t create an emotion comparable with a movie because it is more complicated to feel the characters emotions due to people not being able to physically see the hard times while reading. Therefore, Hitchcock’s film more accurately and symbolically displays this tragedy through his use of setting, mood, and characterizations then Daphne du Maurier’s novella. To begin with, Daphne du Maurier’s written version lacked the strengths dealing with setting, mood, and characterizations that Hitchcock’s film did contain. First of all, the setting in the novella written version took place in London, England which is a pretty big city. In the text it stated “Nat, it’s on the wireless.
I believe that the combination of the setting with the conflict is what really draws the reader into the story and keeps them reading up until the last line of the story. Even though there is not much of a focus towards characters and characterization, this is not entirely necessary in increasing the effectiveness of the exposition in this particular story as the focus is more on the community as a whole and it’s way of dealing with certain problems in their societiy. I think another reason that Shirley Jackson didn’t go into the characters themselves is to increase the versitality of the whole setting. Part of the horror of this story is the idea that it can take place anywhere in any small town around the world, as the setting is quite prosaic and can be applied to most small agricultural areas. This makes this whole story less of a critique of one place, and rather a critique of our world as a
Western and East Asian literature both have morals at the end of the story that does not stray away from what is deemed as “morally-correct”. As can be seen from the analyses in the above sections, the common takeaways from a particular piece of work are Power of Love, be it platonic, familial or romantic, Good versus Evil, wherein good always triumphs. These values are almost always conveyed to the audience and it just goes to show that regardless of culture, there is a need to be politically correct and not be overly anarchist. IX(b): Differences The literary pieces in the East and West have established their very own identity and style and as such, this difference in cultures have also shown in the literary aspect. In this section, I will be exploring the differences between the Western and East Asian portrayals of dystopian-utopian societies, drawing evidence from the analyses on A Wrinkle in Time, The Hunger Games, Psycho-Pass and No.6 in the previous sections.
If a movie was based on a book, which it often is, there would not be enough time to include minor details. Movies don’t have a complex storyline as movies shorten the story down to a simple plot with slight similarities to the book it is based off of. Most of the time, the script does not do the story justice. Movies are limited as it relies on visual stimulation and having to tell a story primarily through dialogue. It is tough for filmmakers to depict the inner conflicts of a character’s mind thus making it very shallow and lacking in depth.
Reading resistance literature need an open mind. The reader does his or her best to understand things according to the view of the author and it is not easy for some people to agree with this point of view. Sometimes, the reader can not have a particular feeling , but the author use some descriptive words for showing emotions which he wants to present. If we study this issue carefully, we find that this issue is popular and prevalent everywhere throughout literature without taking some important points into account. Authors have a good chance and freedom to express themselves in different ways because of the open definition of resistance as if the definition of resistance literature is Specified this would limit the author’s ability to
It is not necessary for the author to tell us that Karlie’s brow was knitted, but the author chooses to tell us anyway. I believe that the author chooses to use descriptive sentences to improve our understanding, but also to give us a clear image of the whole situation and describe emotions. When we read this text, we are able to imagine ourselves in the exact same situation, which makes the story
For instance, most of us using the same source of information but the way we interpret it as a knowledge and express it in our writing is non-identical. This is because information is a wide range of data where it can be changed during the convey process. In addition, the information are easy to reproduce but cannot be actively discard (Birchler & Bütler, 2006). As there are no any specific standard to criticize whether an information is right or wrong, it is easy to be reproduce and spread around. As an example, the information given by the owner may not be fully true during the interview session.
