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.
Another one of her physical features, which are, “her gray sun-strained eyes” (Fitzgerald 11) directly connects her to the color gray in The Great Gatsby. Another aspect of her life that connects with the color gray is her sexuality. If she is not fraternizing with Daisy, then it is likely she is with Nick. Colors in The Great Gatsby are used like similes and metaphors are used in other literary works. The color gray plays an important role in the novel because of the perceptions and associations that stem from color psychology.
The stories The Lottery by Shirley Jackson and The Rocking-Horse Winner by D.H. Lawrence share similarities in their stories. The difference is based on the three major areas in examining any story which are the character, plot, and setting. In general, the atmosphere is configured so that readers are attracted to fiction. A brief prose tale that can be read in one sitting, usually plot function as the driving force. The writer allows the reader to have a complete view of the story, based on the configuration.
“The Lottery”: The Symbolism Within A literary symbol is defined as “an object representing another to give it an entirely different meaning that is much deeper and more significant” (“Symbolism”). The short story “The Lottery”, by Shirley Jackson, has many examples of symbolism that can be found in various places throughout the story. Some specific examples of symbolism in “The Lottery” are the black box used to draw names, the names of the people within the story, and the pieces of paper inside the black box. The first piece of symbolism found in “The Lottery” is the black box. The black box is symbolic in two different ways: it represents tradition and death.
An example of this is in the first paragraph, which describes the setting of the village. The village is described as, “The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny, with the fresh warmth of a full-summer day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green.”(291). This leads us to believe that it is a nice day and everyone will be happy. Another example is the person conducting the lottery, Mr. Summers, is described as, “The lottery was conducted—as were the square dances, the teen club, the Halloween program—by Mr. Summers, who had the time and energy to devote to civic activities. He was a round-faced jovial man and he ran the coal business…” (291-292).
Symbolism appears many times in Anthem. Ayn Rand had the ability to give settings and people deeper meanings that we could understand ourselves. It helped us deepen the understanding of the point she was trying to make. Symbolism is a good literary device that could be used to distinguish a novel to be apart of a dystopian
Additionally, they are different because in “Anthem” , everyone's jobs are assigned to them and they do everything that there told and always listen, but in “The Maze Runner”, everyone helps everyone and everyone has a say in everything. This is how I think the novel “Anthem” and the movie “The Maze Runner” are different from each other. To conclude, there are many ways that these two are similar and different , depending on how you look at it, but these are the similarities and differences in my
In Joyce Carol Oates’ short story “Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?”, symbolism is an extremely vital part of understanding the story’s true meaning. In my opinion, the names of the characters, major and minor, are all important. Some are somewhat subtle and some are begging to be recognized. The short story doesn’t give us much background on the characters; so their names tell the rest of their story.
As well, Shirley uses themes in the hole story to not forget the main topic in different sections, and to understand how important the values and the manners are. My opinion of “The Lottery” is that sometimes the writer can express herself with the readers using different literary devices on the story, and this helps to understand the main purpose of the story. The story was very entertaining and it has a great conclusion because we never expected that kind of end. She also used a lot of different characters to demonstrate the different perspectives that each part of the
The author use these literary devices to enhance the novel. An example of figurative language the author uses in Ender 's game is metaphors. A metaphor is a figure of speech that compares two unlike things. These figure of speeches are used throughout Ender’s game. For example, the author uses a heavy metaphor thought by Valentine when she saw the
In the short story "The Lottery" The style is described in the first sentence, "The morning of June 27th was clear and sonny, with the fresh warmth of a full day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green", and that kind of style is distinctive style. In this story there is a lot of verbal irony, also know as sarcasm. The sarcasm usually comes from Mrs. Summers because that’s how she gets her point a cross, but not in a bad way. The tone in the story I would say would be very consistent when I comes to the attitudes. I feel the the authors tone in the story stayed the same, and only changed when people had their disagreements.
Upon reading the assigned section, I found Richard Robbin’s views on human behavior to be incredibly enlightening. His discussion of human perception drove me into a deeper state of critical thought than I’ve experienced from an assigned reading. Due to the extreme variation in culture among groups of people, our perceptions of life will vary from person to person. Most humans share a common desire for necessities such as a source of food, water, and a permanent structure to occupy. Besides the basic requirements for survival and reproduction, many cultures view the world in vastly different ways.
