The moon cannot be stolen is written so that at first you will find it confusing, then you will analyze the text and find more relevant meaning. These tactical uses of words are not something everyone can do, however, when done right they create large impacts on the reader. Once a writer has mastered these techniques they are able to deliver a message with great meaning, that will resent deeply with the
What separates a good book from a bad one? Well, the choice lies in the hands of the readers. One can learn about a book from reading other people’s reviews, but the only way of deciding wether the book becomes a forgotten piece of literature lying in a dark corner or a prized and beloved treasure added to a beautiful shelf would be opinion. One book treasured by one could seem as a worthless story by another simply because the same book with the same plot is viewed by people with different opinions. By deciding that one book seems better than another, the person judging does not and should not ignore the value of the other.
How he sees the other characters in the novel also influences the reader’s opinions of them, as the reader receives only information about them from Nick. Nick states at the beginning of the novel that he ‘reserves all judgement,’ and is therefore trustworthy, but there are certain reasons for the reader to believe that he is possibly unreliable, such as his negative
It is often able to distinguish what makes a story "great", and there are many debatable reasons; but it is a unanimous decision between readers that what makes a "great" story is one that makes you want to keep reading. There are some elements of literature that simply make a story good, such as mood, character development, foreshadowing, and symbolism. They could all be potential candidates to what makes a good story, but it is rather the way that the author will use them which is what gives the audience the ability to deem it simply "good" rather than "great". There are many similarities and differences between "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell and "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allan Poe; however, "The Most Dangerous Game" is the short story that deserves to be called
After all, it seems to me that, using a symbol is a good choice to intensify the image or characteristics which creators want to share with audience. Nonetheless, people have different experiences; sometimes these various factors expose audience to misinterpretation, and some producers feel that they fail in their duty to render ideas to audience. Anyway, to me, the most important thing when people analyse a work is not just to understand the creator 's purpose, but to pull out and use personal experience to interpret and reveal our own understandings. As long as there are adequate supports, it is not wrong to manifest new ideas. Besides, for producers, some of them may think that they fail to communicate with audience, yet some of them, and I also, think that if audience gives even little thoughts about our works after they are finish, we already carry the day.
The job of every author is not only to create a story with an interesting plot line, but also to create characters that capture the reader’s attention. In the classic story of, “Bartleby, the Scrivener”, author Herman Melville does an excellent job of portraying Bartleby in a way that leaves the reader wanting more. Not only does Bartleby’s character challenge the normal standards of the average employee, but the reader is also allowed to take a look into the mind of the author during a time of strife and struggles. Although it might be difficult for the reader to look past the many noticable differences between Bartleby and the average worker, once scratching the surface of comparisons they may be able to find similarities between Bartleby
There as been countless interpretations of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”, it seems as if everyone sees it as something else. How is this possible? T. S. Eliot was a brilliant writer, and he wrote this peom in a way that would be hard to understand and interpret. Eliot wanted the people reading it to come up with their own way of descerning what it ment. Many may argue, that their view of the poem is correct, but Eliot would have to disagree.
Just let your creativity rule the process and be ready to take lots of notes whenever some good lines would suddenly come to your mind! Don’t use famous passages Of course, you may need certain help if this is your first time writing a poem, but using someone else’s ideas or passages from famous poems is a bad approach to such a creative process. It ruins the whole idea of making something from the heart. Be yourself, express your individuality and feelings! Maybe your poetry wouldn’t sound flawless at first, it may lack rhyme or rhythm, but it will be true and full of love – and this is the most important criteria.
Both Edgar Allan Poe and John Green are able to do this remarkably. As a way to connect the reader with the story, both authors provide different types of conflict in their stories, using them like keys, opening certain locks specific to a character’s personality that can only be shown by the specific conflicts. PvS can show a character’s more inside feelings about themselves, rather than their attitude and behaviors towards others. Another aspect Poe and Green have in common, is their use of deeper meaning behind characters. This not only paints a clear picture in the reader’s head, but can also help the reader be more sympathetic with the character, and use that kind of development, question, and philosophy in their own writing, or even their own life.
Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez seemed as an unusually confusing book on the surface, but after the discussion, the book started to make sense. Though at the same time, the discussion only raised more questions about little details within the book. The first point brought up within the discussion was the changing perspectives was the most interesting aspect of the book. Because I am person that enjoys things being in order, I do not agree. The switching of perspectives made the book have a messy feel to it.
