The entirety of of The Scarlet Letter is written from the perspective of an anonymous third person narrator. Due to his egotistical tendencies, much of the novel is told through very didactic word usage because the narrator intends on teaching the readers instead of solely telling a story. Another prevalent aspect of the work in the difference of diction between the descriptions and speakings of each individual character. Hawthorne ensures that the language a character uses reflects on their personalities as well as follows along with their characterizations throughout the book. In possessing very formal diction overall, the narrator also manages to include artistic aspects such as imagery, metaphor and personification to enhance the novel’s
Historical fiction novels allow the reader to explore outdated philosophies by presenting the information from a different perspective with pressure on having an authentic mindset from the time. Historical fiction authors such as Whitehead use the idea of “entertainment” value, better described as emotional appeal (pathos) to their advantage, manipulating the reader into learning details from a historical time period that they wouldn’t otherwise obtain from a textbook. The genre breaks down extensive topics such as slavery into individual accounts that are representative of the overall ideas in history, without overwhelming the reader with seemingly endless content. While at first glance historical fiction seems to be a rather trivial concept, with further examination it proves to be much more complex, using literary devices to leave the reader with an unforgettable view of
Lecture 7 Americanizing American Culture 7.1. Unitarianism and Transcendentalism 7.2. Ralph Waldo Emerson 7.3. Henry David Thoreau 7.4. Other Transcendentalists: Ripley, Brownson, Fuller Edgar Allan Poe was a poet and author whose texts were not distinctly 'American' in choice of subjects and settings, but his economy and also his choice of genre and textuality were, for the simple reason that he depended on the situation and constitution of the American literary and cultural market.
Hook: In a society that was close to a turn of a century, there were politic and social issues going on, which was express with the art and literature at the time. Thesis: Wilde’s style of poetry reflects his time as a Victorian writer, even if his topics and ideas didn 't, and this is because his own lifestyle did no fit into society, especially since his feminine side and sexuality were a big part of his life on which he pulled from to write his poems.

For a unique individual as Wilde, his style matched many of times, and it can be seen by what he decided to write about. Poetry in the Victorian age was consider the connection from romantic to modern.
Abstract: A formalist analysis focuses on the literary text to the exclusion of social, cultural or political reality outside of the text. A text is examined by the formalists as a complete world in itself. A close reading of the text, therefore, is the foundation of Formalist criticism. When we examine the text of The Scarlet Letter, it seems as if the novel has been written with great care and precision. Hawthorne seems to have woven the tapestry of the scarlet letter with utmost care leaving absolutely no loose ends.
Comparison of Poe and Hawthorne’s Use of Allegory Both Poe and Hawthorne used allegory in their literary works, but Hawthorne used it more effectively and more extensively. Poe preferred to use symbols. Hawthorne acknowledged the fact that he preferred to make his readers do their own interpretive work. He, therefore, did not limit himself to one moral and often tended to choose vagueness in relating a tale. His symbols were tied to deeper allegorical meanings that he left it to the reader’s imagination to determine.
Symbolism is a very important aspect to stories during the Dark Romantic time period. The symbols during that time period were designed to make the reader think more deeply about certain topics and themes in their works. Edgar Allen Poe, and Nathaniel Hawthorne use symbolism to transform their stories into the cornerstones of the Dark Romantic time period. Furthermore, Poe and Hawthorne’s stories exemplify the symbolism of the Dark Romantic time period better than “The Birthmark,” “The Minister 's Black Veil,” and “The Fall of the House of Usher.” “The Fall of the House of Usher” is one of the best Dark Romantic pieces for its use of symbolism. The stories use of symbolism extends from the house itself to even the atmosphere around the house, exemplify the style of the era.
In this regard, the Church reaffirms the law of subsidiarity, which the school is bound to observe when it cooperates in sex education, by entering the same spirit that animates the parents. In this context education for chastity is essential, for it is a virtue that develops a person’s authentic maturity and makes him or her capable of respecting and fostering the “nuptial meaning” of the body. Indeed, Christian parents, discerning the signs of God’s call, will devote special attention and care to education in virginity or celibacy as the supreme form of that self-giving that constitutes the very meaning of human sexuality. For this reason, the Church is firmly opposed to an often-widespread form of imparting sex information dissociated from moral principles. That would merely be an introduction to the experience of pleasure and a stimulus leading to the loss of serenity-while still in the years of innocence-by opening the way to
A story is more than just plot and characters, it is subtle symbols, emotional tones, and deeper meanings conveyed through the specific word choice of an author. British literature is known for its extensive use of these literary devices, and short stories especially use them to the fullest advantage due to their short nature. One specific story is Joseph Conrad’s “The Lagoon”, which uses literary devices to tell the story about a Malayan man and his struggles with love and betrayal. Another story known for its clever use of literary devices is Virginia Woolf’s “Lady In The Looking Glass: A Reflection”, which discusses the fears and acceptance of aging and death. Both of these stories are more than the simple plot that appear on the surface,
