He tells his story of incest as if he were reading it from a pre-printed novel; it 's very rehearsed since he 's told it an abundance of times. However, he seems like he gets amusement by telling it and knows that whoever he tells it to will become captivated. He always uses the story to try to portray his innocence and connect with the people he tells. He reflects on his wrongdoings but in a way that is lighthearted and makes someone so shocked they almost can 't help but feel a little bad
Golding has used many different literary devices, showed progression of characters and incorporated different themes to give his writing a whole new and deeper meaning to it.

The story telling phenomenon of the hero’s journey can be found in almost every culture. Even in today’s literature poets, authors and philosophers rely on the Hero’s journey to guide them through the creative process. The twelve steps of the hero’s journey can be found in the thrilling story of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K Rowling. By examining these twelve steps found in Harry Potter we are able to see how the Hero’s journey manifest itself in twenty first century literature. The very first step in the hero’s journey just might be the most crucial when it comes to the reader to being able to connect to the hero.
Situational irony can be unanticipated. How the author describes the characters throughout the story with the emotions they feel and their ideas can heavily impact the situational irony. Situational irony can often have a huge twist in the story, whether or not it is about the main character or just the idea or setting of it. O. Henry from “The Ransom’s Red Chief,” uses situational irony to create an amusing effect on the reader. Guy de Maupassant from “The Necklace,” uses situational irony to create an enormous amount of sympathy for the characters of the story.
‘He wants to come in’”. (pp. 263) The imagery for this scene in the novel is not as strong as my previous example, but I feel that there is a subtlety present that adds to my personal version of horror. The fact that the pig, Jodie, is not described in full detail leads the reader’s imagination to fill in what this creature actually looks like. The author is essentially using imagery in a negative way by omitting defining features.
These two don’t have similar interests either. Zebra and Andrea could have been friends, but might have been consumed by their differences. Andrea thinks that Zebra is gloomy because of the stories he tells. Then again, she is assuming. The author states, “‘You always tell such sad stories,’ said Andrea.” She wasn't very encouraging towards him.
W.F. Harvey first begins to get the character interested in the reading by the way he signals hints towards the reader in order to get them thinking about events that could possibly happen. As the reader continues reading W.F. Harvey introduces more hints that might change the way of thinking of the reader. As it is seen in his short story, ¨August Heats,¨ the foreshadowing begins when, ¨A sudden impulse made me enter,¨ (source 2) which makes us(as the reader) think that James, (the main character/narrator) might be leading himself into something terribly wrong.
Indeed, Many characters have flaws affecting their decisions in English literature, they made mistakes only to realize them later. Aristotle considers a flaw is a weakness in human mind when mistakes and errors in plot or direction caused actions to change in a tragic manner as described in the tragedies of Oedipus and Antigon. In fact, Lear is the victim of this flaw that he can physically see, but he is blind in the sense that he lacks insight and understanding which contribute to his decision against his innocent daughter Cordelia.
Mainly when the mood is changing therefore the character mood changes and the nature of the mood. Characterization is also used in this short story “The Open Window”. The characters in the story, Mrs.Sappleton, chose to make the story she was telling offly freaky. Therefore, the other character Framton was getting freaked out by the story Mrs.Sappleton and the choice of words she was using. Whenever she scared him,
Satirical works can also make people change their opinions about the conditions in society. When I read this essay the first time I was shocked and I did not know if I should take it seriously or if I should laugh. Then I started to read background information and the more I read the more I was realizing what was Jonathan Swift´s main reason at writing his satirical essay. I am sure, that Jonathan Swift’s work, A Modest Proposal, made people think about their situation more and that is the point of his
It expands our creativity and imagination. Readers give writers all credits for creativity and imagination when “reading is also an event of the imagination. The creativity of the reader meets that of the writer and in that meeting we puzzle out what he means, or what we understand he means” (65). Symbolism is essential to novels. By expanding our creativity and imagination, every reader has a different experience when reading the same book.
As timely now as it was written 48 years ago, “The Outsiders” is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction written by S.E Hinton. Books such as “The Outsiders” have the power to affect readers’ lives and stay with them forever. Ponyboy’s life was not easy, he had it tough and he is very aware of that. But he finds ways to make it work. I really liked this book because it was like a “Blast in the past” sorta thing because we are reading a book about a 14 year old in the mid 60s, and he is talking about the issues he has and the differences between the two groups the Socs and the Greasers,we get a rare glimpse of a boy 's life in the 60s and we get to read a unique piece of literature which we can’t find nowhere else.
Many of the characters due to the limiting use of letters they had developed a daily struggle as Mittie wrote to Gwenette, “The wine. Plus the loss of the grammatical unifier. It is all too much” ( Dunn 76). Dunn not only tries to convey the reader of the importance of language, but how fun it can be as well. By writing in the book in letters one can read and see how the characters in the book struggle to write and how this affects them greatly for the frustration they have is expressed in their letters.
