The debate between authorial intention approach and the social construction process is a debate within the textual critics about the history of the book and the way that should be taken in consideration in reading a work of art. In the first few decades of the twentieth century, the authorial intention approach has dominated the textual criticism until a new approach has been revealed to repeal the authorial intention approach or at least to take the domination place in the literary textual criticism and this approach is the social construction approach. Before the domination of the social construction approach there was a debate between the two textual approaches; each side of the debate tried to prove that his approach is the most valid for textual criticism and at the same
During this unit, we looked at a couple of short stories where authors developed particular literary features. One of the stories that we read was “The Tell-Tale Heart” where Edgar Allan Poe used flashback in the introduction in order to give more background information about the character. “Reunion” by John Cheever, consisted of a lot of dialogue with little description, but yet still created a visual image of the character in the readers’ head. Lastly, another story that we read in class was “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, where the author used specific details throughout the story to foreshadow the violent conclusion. While writing my story titled “Aiden”, I replicated the significance of literary features in those three stories such as flashback, dialogue, and foreshadowing.
He finds it in him to forgive his fellow countrymen for their coupe d’état, on the basis that “They are man of my race, and of high rank” (1.2.257-258). Prospero uses the threat of torture and magic on Caliban when he is defied by his “subject” by using the language that Prospero taught him “If you keep gambling you will be whipped” and “Beating is the only language you understand. So much the worse for you: I’ll speak, it loud and clear”. Prospero is vivid in his taunting and plight of Caliban and this extends the reader’s sympathy towards Caliban as opposed to “The Tempest”, where the reader finds it difficult to sympathize with Caliban as he is subjectively set out as the antagonist. Further, this threat of torture and discomfort caused by Prospero’s magic and torture shows the tools that were used by European settlers to oppress the indigenous people, such as that of language and torture, this points out the theme of power.
When I was working on a project called “It’s your Right” from the goal called “Contribute to Society”, I had to write an essay about rights and responsibilities of United States citizens. From what I did and feedback that I received from reviewers, I learned that a good essay should have an introduction, body paragraphs and conclusion. I also learned that in order to have a good essay, one should use techniques that attract the attention of readers. Some of those techniques are the use of quotes, questions and stories. It is also better to use transition words so as

This topic will include readings from Wimsatt & Beardsley and Hirsch. The two readings called The Intentional Fallacy and In Defense of the Author will be examined and discussed in detail. The two readings are connected as Hirsch 's work is an argument responding to the views of Wimsatt and Beardsley 's in The Intentional Fallacy.

The plot has been defined by some experts in literature field. For example, according to Perrine (1974: 41), “Plot is the sequence of incident or events which the story is composed and it may conclude what character says or thinks, as well as what he does, but it leaves out a description and an analysis and concentrates ordinarily on major happening”. Also, according to Stanton (1965: 14), “The plot is story that contains the sequences of events, but each incident is only connected in cause and effect, an event which caused or led to the occurrence of other events”. In that case, we can conclude that the plot is the way of the story that shows cause-effect event. Then, the definition of character.
