Imprisonment and constraint, can be felt in many different scenarios in the passage from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. However, we get these two feelings with a girl who is portrayed as an orphan in this chapter. When being an orphan many feelings can run through a person’s mind, for example abandonment and not feeling loved, or being/feeling trapped. The feeling of imprisonment and constraint in this chapter is expressed through the use of imagery and diction. Imagery is viewed in this chapter in a variety of sentences.
Chesnutt was one of the first black writers to have their work published in a prestigious literary journal. He had his work published in the Atlantic. His first piece published was The Goophered Grapevine. Throughout Chesnutt’s writing he uses irony, dialect and imagery to bring his characters alive and capture his audience. The most obvious technique Chesnutt uses is the pronounced dialect for his African American characters.
In the Motorcycle diaries, and specially, in these two quotes, “I now know, by an almost fatalistic conformity with the facts, that my destiny is to travel, or perhaps it’s better to say that traveling is our destiny, because Alberto feels the same. Still there are moments when I think with profound longing of those wonderful areas in our south. Perhaps one day, tired of circling the world, I’ll return to Argentina and settle in the Andean lakes, if not indefinitely then at least for a pause while I shift form one understanding of the world to another.” And “There we understood our vocation, our true vocation, was to move for eternity along the roads and seas of the world. Always curious, looking into everything that came before our eyes, sniffing out each corner but only ever faintly—not setting down roots in any land or staying long enough to see the
Many authors have their own person way of writing like including facts in their literary works or putting their own opinions into the mix. Emily Dickenson and Robert Frost are two poets that focus on themselves; they share their opinions, emotions, and thoughts through their writing and build a community of people who agree with them. Both of these talented writers are very keen on keeping a running theme that stands as their central idea; Emily’s poems are about seeing things in a new and different light while Robert’s poems are built around central metaphors and his past experiences. Aside from focusing on themselves, they have a few poems that describe the experience and emotions of an induvial person like Frost’s “Home Burial” and Dickenson’s “He ate and drank the precious words”. Emily Dickenson was a poet who expresses her deep emotions and thoughts that she experiences naturally over time; she doesn’t worry about getting things right nor does she worry about what people will think of her poems.
In this breathtaking novel of three teen romances’, Let It Snow, John Green is joined with two Humorous authors Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle to capture the magic of the holidays.

The average reader cracks open a good book, falls in love with the main character, cries when they read touching moments and laughs at the humorous ones. Good writers are accredited for their ability to captivate their reader's emotions and draw them deep into their stories world. Good readers read the story twice to feel those emotions all over again. According to Matthijs Bal who conducted numerous experiments on the effects of reading fiction on empathy, “fiction presents a simulation of real-world problems, and therefore has real consequences for the reader.” So what are the effects that reading fiction can have?
Authors use many different methods to connect with the readers. One of the most powerful and common method authors use is language. Language can be used to influence actions, ideas, or emotions of the reader. In the stories The Count of Monte Cristo, Lord of the Flies, and The Old Man and the Sea, these authors do exactly so and use language to keep the readers amused by the text. In the Count of Monte Cristo, the main character Dantes is wrongfully Imprisoned.
In his quote, Stephen King was inferring that literature in general should make a reader get involved with what they are reading, so much that it will even affect how they are feeling from their comfort levels to how they react. I do agree with Stephen King’s statement, literature should make you feel something, it should be something that pulls you in and makes you want to know more. If you are reading something that gets under your skin or makes you react, it makes what you are reading more alluring, so much in fact that a reader could feel like they’re on a personal level with a book or feel like they are compelled to read more. The purpose of literature should be to have the reader feel something, making you want to react and feel an obligation
