I think that in the novel, Bloor uses natural phenomenon to represent the problems in Paul’s life and his memories. For example, on page sixteen the firefighter explains to Mrs. Fisher, “Muck fires don’t go out. They’re burning all the time…” Although the literal meaning of what he’s saying is that the muck fire doesn’t go out, the author means much more. When the author says muck fires don’t go out I think he’s talking Paul’s memories. His memories are always there
Artie grows close to the story he is writing and the diaries as a way of fixing the broken relationship he had with his mother. Vladek uses the exercise bike as a mechanism of escaping the memories from the Holocaust that scarred him emotionally and mentally. The body language and actions taken by the characters, which only could have been seen through the use of comics, allow for the reader to see what the author believes he saw or would have seen. The contribution of the comic strips complements the reader’s understanding of how the characters are overly attached to certain
Then as we read on we realize that it becomes important as a new character enters into the story that brings conflict and problems along with him. Even little details that the author writes into the story are integrated into the main idea. McCarthy also includes many clever examples of the literary element irony in this story. The reader notices that Grady seems to have a less than perfect relationship with his father and mother who have divorced. We as readers are also able to understand the humor that is portrayed by the author 's use of verbal irony.
In the end, Sameh becomes aware of the pain that he has caused people and that you cannot fight fire with fire. Fosters book, How to Read Literature Like a Professor, is useful when analyzing quests because it helps readers see the changes that a character goes through as they mature and develop through their quest to gain self
are all ways a writer can make a reader feel a certain mood. Setting and diction were used in these stories. It’s interesting how an author can change the way someone thinks about something by using one of these elements in their writing. If the character's in “Back Roads” never came across the fascinating river or statute, the reader would most likely be very bored with the story. And if the character in “A Winter’s Drive” never found the box he was looking for, there wouldn’t be an anxious feeling at all because what would the reader have to look forward to in the story?
In Scott Russell Sanders’ essay “The Inheritance of Tools”, Sanders explores the relationship that he had with his father. Concrete objects like the wooden tools that he inherits from his father provide the basis for the reflections on his relationship with his father. He manages to indicate his attitude very early on in the essay using both features of style and rhetorical strategies. The author establishes his love for his father and sadness at his passing by narrating an anecdotal story involving his hammer, word choice that conveys his sadness, and strong use of imagery. The paragraph in Sanders’ essay that explains the story behind the handle of his hammer and how he had broken it several times uses an anecdotal story to convey Sanders’ attitude towards his father 's death.

The evolution of theme through the use of plot and characters in “The Bicycle”: 1) In Jillian Horton’s “The Bicycle”, there are many examples where literary devices, such as character and plot, are used to develop the short story’s theme. 2) A theme statement is a developed statement or idea that summarizes what the author has to say on a story’s topic, and is usually no more than a sentence long. In this story, the theme is the importance of self-evaluation and reflection despite how definite things are thought to be. 3a) An example of this technique of theme advancement is shown in the passage, “Tante Rose had promised me at a very early age that if I studied my piano lessons very hard, she would some day send me to New York to take lessons
The first part of the novel is the Underground man when he is 40 years old and is reflecting on his past. The second part is when he was younger and is recording the everyday events of his life. In the second part we came to understand that the Underground man didn’t know how to properly control and understand his freewill abilities.

But, in the first part of the novel, when he is reflecting, he is more at peace with his freewill.

Two seemingly unalike books like Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury and Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass written by himself provide a great example of comparing the two different themes and even finding common ones between them. Every time a book is read, deep thought should be taken in order to fully understand the themes and morals the author is trying to impose on his or her audience. In this case, the pursuit for a higher education, freedom, and developing oneself. Fahrenheit 451 is a book about an everyday fireman living in a future United States whose job is to burn books. At the beginning of the book, the main character, Montag, meets a girl who loves to read (Bradbury 4).

Frederick was sent to Baltimore’s home of Hugh Auld. This is where he got his skills to read and write, even though there were laws against teaching slaves how to read and write.
