The references made to Coleridge’s work through setting and description of loneliness advance the reader's thoughts about gothic heroes by coaxing readers to make inferences about the upcoming events for Walton. The continued allusion clarifies that in the end, Walton will end up like the Mariner, a troubled gothic hero. By developing the gothic hero in a subtle way, Shelley is able to gently assist readers in their understanding of the story, especially when she uses Genesis to further explain the creation’s actions. Through comparisons made between the creation, Adam, and the fallen angel, it is clear how the creation is classified as a gothic hero and why his actions are so intense. Due to his loneliness and inner torture, he cannot control his own violent impulses.
By doing this emotional scene, Pullman is alluding to the Odyssey. This proves that he was influenced by the epic when writing his own novel. It is clear by looking into Young Adult fiction, such as The Hunger Games and His Dark Materials, that authors have been influenced greatly by ancient materials. Myths were once an oral tradition that were then written down by authors such as Homer, so that they can now be remembered and used within literature. Whether it is that a whole series can be based off a myth, like The Hunger Games, or whether it is just a scene, like the land of the dead in the Amber Spyglass, it is clear that through myth ancient materials have influenced Young Adult fiction a great
Rhetorical questions impact me as a reader by, engaging me into the text and also by making me think about what is being talked about in the book. Rhetorical questions impact the reading experience by bringing in new ideas and thoughts to the book, and makes you ask yourself the questions that being asked. I think that he added rhetorical questions to help the reader to think more about the book, and to help add an emphasis on what is being talked about in the book. Elie Wiesel is is trying to impact the reader and the reading experience by adding an emphasis on how what is happening doesn’t matter anymore, because they are going to end up dying anyways, whether that is in 20 years, or in 20 days; at the concentration camp or at their house. Personification: “But it was all in vain.
However, the way in which Steinbeck implements this “colorful language” is key to understanding why he used it at all. Ordinarily, an author would describe a character by their physical human traits rather than accentuating animal-like characteristics, which is how Steinbeck depicts Lennie. As a result of the utilization of Lennie’s animal-like depiction, Steinbeck subliminally dehumanizes Lennie in the reader's mind and justifies the death of animals at the hands of their masters. Ultimately, in Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck dehumanizes Lennie to the reader through the use of animal imagery, in order to allow the reader to justify Lennie’s death at the hands of his best friend, George as a warranted act of
For my research paper, the topic I am interested in is autodidact. The potential thesis is autodidacts develop the abilities of self-recognition through exploring themselves. In Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the monster moved to a village after escaping from Victor Frankenstein’s house. In his observation of people living there, he gradually knew people were afraid of him. In addition, he learned the feelings that he did not know how to categorize them before, which he discovered the senses of light, dark, cold, thirst, and hunger.
One way he used Patnos in the book when he used emotion to make you feel something sertion so that you would like wolves and that made me sceptical. He liked to personified the wolves which made it harder to believe. “I found myself calling her Angeline…” he started naming the wolves and we all know when you name something you get close to it
¨Maybe there is a beast...maybe it 's only us¨. This quote was written by William Golding, the author of Lord of the Flies. This quote connects to the symbolism developed throughout the book Lord of the Flies because through the story the characters learn the beast is themselves all along. This connects to the symbolism of the conch because the conch is part of what makes the boys become the ¨beasts¨. In Lord of the Flies one major symbol is the conch.
Students should learn about the value the novel provides from that time-period in which Mark Twain wrote, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Twain put the N word in the novel for a reason, to describe the time-period in which these events had occurred. Phillip Rawls writes, “‘It’s such a shame that one word should be a barrier between a marvelous reading experience and a lot of readers,’ Gribben said. Yet Twain was particular about his words.” The use of the N word has brought many situations upon readers when coming across it, Rawls describes the idea that there was reasoning behind Twain’s writing. Peter Salwen says, “The great black novelist Ralph Ellison noted how Twain
This is also the cause of the absence of imperatives afterwards. The writer tries to establish the contact between himself and the reader on a personal level by using more “I”. The focus of the story is also found below the separation, the protagonist’s (Little Red Riding Hood) first encounter of the antagonist (Wolf). However, the changes in Extract 2 don’t cut it in half, it cuts it into 3 pieces just like it has 3 paragraphs. That is because a good story require a stronger structure that link everything together.
This is what gave him ideas for his stories that gave the animals human-like characteristics such as speech and emotions, but the animal characters would still carry out their qualities and natural tendencies. In his fables, Aesop would talk about certain people or animals doing something. In his fables, each story carries morals and lessons to be learned. I will only talk about three stories that I believe carries important lessons in life. The stories I chose are “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”, “The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg”, “The Tortoise and the Hare”, and “The Peacocks Complaint.” The first story I want to talk about is “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” In this story, there was a boy in a village that had, or watched, a herd of sheep.
