What makes a story enjoyable? Is it the plot? Or is it the methods the author uses to connect to the reader? Plot is a big thing, but it is the literary devices that bring the story together. In the three stories, “The Tunnel” by Sarah Ellis, “The Skating Party” by Merna Summers and “The Bicycle” by Jillian Horton all have unique literary devices to make each story more intriguing and to give them the feeling of being part of the story.
Memory, symbol, and pattern are all key parts to make a successful novel, especially if the piece of literature is complex. Memory helps a reader relate to a character or moment, which gives a story emotion and gives it an impact. An impactful story is a story that a reader will think about, which can help a reader understand or want to read more. Symbols adds depth and imagery to a story. They add depth by providing people or objects that mean something, which builds onto making the literature memorable.
The writer allows the reader to have a complete view of the story, based on the configuration. It can be used to divert the reader. It can also be indicated that the configuration is an important feature in short stories. Both authors used symbols to support reading. These symbols will help readers have a better understanding of the story.
The novel ‘Jasper Jones’ written by Craig Silvey and the film ‘Dressmaker’ directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse have connected to the audience and use of narratives conventions in very similar ways. The ways that they have succeed doing this is through characteristics, plot and setting. By looking into how they are used by the author/ director widen the knowledge and have deeper in-depth understanding on how authors and directors use them to connect with the audience. The author and director have used characteristics to connect with the audience by using relatable situations like peer pressure, disliked by people, challenges and traumatic experiences. The characters are very relatable in most scenes like Charlie (novel), plays the game where he must steal 5 or more apricot seeds from Mad Jack’s yard to avoid getting bullied for the year.
Every good book involves the development of characters throughout the story. Whether the story changes by working through a particular challenge, or developmenting through the phases of life, or even developmenting different morals. This keeps the reader interested and allows for a good story line. Some such stories include The Scarlet Ibis, Romeo and Juliet, and The Most Dangerous Game. All these stories show different development though a character over the course of the novels to keep the reader interested.
That is why it is so interesting to relate these emotional roles to characters that come from literature. When you relate to fictional characters on a personal level, it submerges you into the story. That could be why The Crucible is so critically acclaimed. Not only because of how well it is written, but because the feelings and emotions are easy to relate to. Now all that is left to decide, is where you lie in the psychoanalytic world.
Through the eyes of an author, there could be many ways to write a story, but their goal is to pick the best way the story would be told. Many times authors who write in the third person perspective, lack major details about how the main character feels; but when written in the first person point of view, it allows the reader to interpret the tone through the character's feelings because the character expresses their thoughts and actions in deeper detail. The book Grendel by John Gardner, engages the reader in a first person point of view, allowing the reader to further analyze the main characters views on society, thoughts on the attack on the mead hall, and the final battle: on the contrary, the epic poem, Beowulf, tells the same story in
Ellis’ use of certain devices makes reading the novel very exciting and engaging. The novel itself isn’t written in a regular style, each chapter is not numbered but almost written in a journal format allowing characters to further connect with Patrick making it seem as though we are reading his daily thoughts, this is done by naming each chapter based on the location or the people involved in that certain chapter. I would defiantly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a well written, exhilarating plot including many twists and turn throughout the story. Along with the amazing plot the story has a great lesson to be learned revealed at the end of the story in which the main character, Patrick Bateman, had to learn in a series of crazy events that led to a psychopathic
Often in novels the central character can have a major influence on other characters throughout the story. Whether the influence is positive or negative, some form of growth and change is seen in the surrounding characters. In the cases of The Great Gatsby and The Metamorphosis, these central characters are also a mystery that the surrounding characters are trying to solve. This paper will discuss the influence Jay Gatsby had on other characters in The Great Gatsby and the influence that Gregor Samsa had on other characters in The Metamorphosis, while also discussing the mysteries both of them present for other characters to solve. Jay Gatsby is a mystery to those around him because of the way he presents himself.
In a way, he is responsible for the absence of her brother, but he does care for her he does have a heart. From this point on he watches over her and continues telling her story, and shows up at another important moment in her life, when she has just lost almost everyone she loves due to a bombing. He sees her book that she was writing in that she dropped, and, “[j]ust before the truck left I took it [Liesel’s book] in my hand...it’s lucky I was there” Death loves Liesel, and Liesel loves words. Since he loves her he cares about what is important to her, that is why he took the book. After this incident, Liesel has a happy life until her time comes which is when Death takes her by the hand and walks with her, shows her the book, and talks about all he has seen.
One of the most effect ways of communication is writing. It allows that author to completely unravel what they truly believe. A good author, though, knows what he or she believes, so when writing they are able to present their believes in a way that persuades the readers to absorb the argument and contemplate what the author presents in comparison to their own beliefs. Charles Blow, who writes for The New York Times, writes as described previously in a sarcastic, yet dignified tone, which shifts when presenting both sides of an argument. Sentence structure also allows Blow to set apart what is important and what the reader needs to take note of.
Authors use figurative language to engage their readers and make their story more convincing or interesting. Authors also use it to help add mood fluency and imagery to their books. For example, in Ender’s game the author uses figurative language a lot to help the reader understand and help picture what 's going on in the scenes. The author uses metaphors, and hyperboles to create vivid images. The author use these literary devices to enhance the novel.
As we continue to read, we approached a new yet very familiar literary device that I would often see when people are repeatedly listing things. If I were the writer of a book, the device such as polysyndeton is definitely one of the necessary and helpful writing techniques. Like we have discussed, the author wants to make sure that the readers will pay attention to the context, what he 's trying to tell so he would slow down the sentence with the repeating conjunction such as "and", "or" as it 's also used to list out some of the important factors or matters that happened in the story. One of the examples of polysyndeton in this chapter have ensured me the definition as well as the use of polysyndeton. " And on Mondays eight
