The author has used lots of symbolic images to tell the reader what the narrator what he feels about the situation. Alex la Guma has used different economical language to convey callous and hatred in the story. It is a very short story, it includes nothing about the attack and what actually happened. Climax- Alex la Guma builds up tension by using symbolic images: “The moon was hidden behind long high parallels of cloud.” “The men were walking through an orchard of lemon and the sharp bittersweet citrus smell hung gently on the night air.” “In the dark this man’s face was invisible except for a blur of shadowed hollows and lighter crags. “The moonlight clung for a while to the leaves and the angled branches.” How it links to other stories- The lemon orchard links with the other short story The Yellow Wall Paper as most of the themes are the same.
As Bradbury’s hands finish the creation that is Montag, the reader is apt with information about the characters and ideas that run continuously through the story. This is due to the use of literary tools. Without the use of literary tools there would be no development in the novel especially the protagonist, Montag. Uses of character interactions, symbols and figurative language progressively let the reader gain a higher degree of what is laying in the text. The clay sculpture of Montag glows by the end of the book, giving him the opportunity to find his
He motivates us to take a second look at the not-exactly ordinary occasions that whisper a more profound which means. His story suggests that the blending of ordinary with inexplicable could change our lives, in the event that we take a gander at them with the right point of view. The story 's tone is set at the outset, with the most natural and unwelcome of events: a sick child in the midst of drab and harsh weather. In the first paragraph, he then acquires a magical component by presenting the strange character of an old man with enormous wings. Marquez promptly shows any outlooks we have of powerful and sacred angels by setting him face down in the mud and not able to remove himself, hindered by his enormous

Gary Soto uses similes, metaphors, attitude, and varied stanza structure in “Oranges” to highlight the importance of taking chances.
However, it is not always easy to find what the foreshadowing are, and what their effects are. From now on, I am going to deal with various foreshadowing used in two stories, “One of these days” and “The Landlady”. Firstly, “One of these days” is about a dentist dealing with the city’s mayor. The main theme of the story is about conflicts between two characters, the dentist and the mayor.Throughout the story, the dentist revealsthe feeling of hatred against the mayor.

In retrospect, the reader often discovers that the first chapter of a novel or the opening scene of drama introduces some of the major themes of work. Write an essay about the opening scene of a drama or the first chapter of a novel in which you explain how it functions in this way. · In The Jungle , Upton Sinclair introduces the theme of poverty and its many moral struggles.

Chesnutt uses imagery throughout most of his short stories. He uses imagery to draw in his readers and present them with a visual image. The most common story that is brought up when you hear the word imagery is Chesnutt’s short story The Goophered Grapevine. An example that his readers come upon is “we drove between a pair of decayed gateposts- the gate itself had long since disappeared- and up a straight sandy lane- between two lines of rotting rail fence, partly concealed by jimson and briers, to open space where a dwelling had once stood, evidently a spacious mansion, if we might judge from the ruined chimneys that were still standing, and the brick pillars on which the sills rested. The house itself, we had been informed had fallen a victim to the fortunes of war.” This is a perfect example of imagery.
I am delighted that the interactive oral on Anton Chekhov's Cherry Orchard furthered my understanding of certain cultural and political aspects of the novel. The following aspects that became clearer to me are; the importance of Memory for particular characters like Madame Ranevsky and Gayef, the way the transition of time is depicted in the play, and the portrayal of the conflict between capitalism and socialism. Cherry Orchard explores the after-effects of the Emancipation reform, which altered the social, political and cultural norms of the Russian society, thereby leading to the formation of a new Feudal Russia. Due to this economic alteration, the past holds utmost importance in this novel. For some characters like Ranevsky and Gayef – the past is something to which they are chained to.
