“The different accidents of...so miserably given life” (pages 43-44.) In this section of the passage, Shelley does a very good job to charm her readers through the usage of very descriptive diction choices to elaborate her story even further. She uses many words that beautifully craft her story into the somber, eerie tale that it is. Her diction choices overall have a very strong influence on the tone of the story, as many of her choices in this section help set the tone she was looking to achieve, very dark and terrifying. She sets her desired tone with success through this usage of tone-specific and tone-setting
In the short story “The Most Dangerous Game,” the author, Richard Connell uses the wonders of figurative language to spice things up in many ways throughout the story. Almost every page had something lying within itself, hidden behind metaphors similes, personification, and the list goes on. Some examples of how Richard Connell uses figurative language were clearly displayed on page 62: “Didn’t you notice that the crew’s nerves were a bit jumpy today?” This page also began to reveal the main feeling/emotion of the story(eerie/suspicious) came to be-which was set off by the example I used above. In this scene, the author uses very descriptive words and/or adjectives in his choice(s) of figurative language when he writes, “There was no breeze.
ABSTRACT: Kurt Vonnegut is arguably the finest black humourist and postmodern writer of contemporary times. Vonnegut primarily used the genre of science fiction, nevertheless his works portray the gravity of contemporary issues and have close parallels with the current socio-economic and political milieu of America. Vonnegut wrote fourteen novels, three short story collections, five plays and five works of non-fiction. Although he primarily received acclaim for his novels, yet most of his short stories are written in the same strain. Two short stories: “Harrison Bergeron” and “2 B R 0 2 B” will be analyzed in this paper.
The foreboding we see prompts to dramatic irony later in the story. This intrigues me personally. The protagonist does not know that he will encounter conflict as a result of his actions but the reader catches on due to this use of foreboding. One good example takes place when Grady sticks with his romantic relationship with Alejandra despite many warnings not to by her aunt Alfonsa. Foreboding in this section tells
The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father.
We are told in the stage directions. These distinctly visual techniques clearly illuminate the horrors of war for the audience. Perhaps the most poignant example of the horrors of war concerns Sheila’s sacrifrice for Bridie. From the outset of the play, Misto uses the dramatic technique of tension between the two characters to indicate there is something [between them which has been] unresolved.
In the beginning of the tragedy Othello tells Brabantio to “Keep up your bright swords signior, for the dew will rust them” (1.2.72-73). This statement gives the reader insight to Othello’s level-head and smart decisions, before he allowed jealousy to cloud his vision. Othello becomes convinced that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio; therefore, he is angered and beings to seek revenge for a crime that was never committed. Iago tells Othello “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on” (3.3.187-189).
An element of propaganda the animals used to influence others is the scare tactics technique. The scare tactic technique is when one is trying to warn the audience that some disaster will overtake them if they do not do what is suggested. To illustrate this method, the author writes “It is for your sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples. You know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty?
Storytelling has been the epitome of human expression for thousands of years. Along with musicians and artists, talented storytellers use their work to share ideas with others, often in an effort to evoke emotion or to persuade people to think similarly. Every element in a story is carefully crafted by the author in order to communicate a desired message to his or her audience. In Slaughterhouse-Five, Kurt Vonnegut incorporates irony into the story to express his belief that fighting wars is illogical.
Washington Irving, this author is famous for his great stories. Three of which are The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Rip Van Winkle, and lastly The Devil and Tom Walker. All three of these stories are very well written, given with very much detail. One of my favorites by him would be The Devil and Tom Walker. This story was about this man named Tom and he was going through what seemed to be a war, but then came across “the devil” who in which cursed Tom.
The mac and cheese lover continues, “It made me think about all the life hack articles and videos floating around, scolding us on how we are living life wrong and correcting our ways. However, some life hacks that people post online, in youtube videos or buzz feed article, bombard us on how we are doing simple tasks wrong. They offer us a more correct way of achieving simple tasks, tasks where there are really no right or wrong way of accomplishing. But from the informers perspective, our way of tying our sneakers or eating a tic tac is considering wrong.” As she’s talking, I’m nodding along with the realization that she 's correct.
The creator of a piece of literature is at hands to display an array of themes and allegories. Yet, many texts that have been renowned for excellence have also been censored and banned because of these themes and allegories. History has not been kind to the controversial words written by authors. So, should books only express hopeful and positive narratives? The evident answer is no.
In the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain exposes his critical views on humanity through a series of events. Using satire, he reflects his analytic view on society. Twain describes humanity as hypocritical, racist and naive. He explores his pre civil war views through characters and events that expose the flaws in society.
