The Wild West brought many great stories to foreign places, with the help of regionalism it made foreign places alive to people who didn’t know of them. In Mark Twain’s “The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County”, is based out of California during the gold rush, a man named Jim smiley is a great gambler who bets on anything and everything. He will always win the bets, until an unknown man comes along and cheats out Jim smiley out of his money. He cheated Jim out by stuffing his famous jumping frog with a teaspoon of a quill shot (Twain 665).

The writers ' fundamental objective is to delight and engage the audience, as well as to take the reader on an adventure brimming with intense plot twists. The creator accomplishes her objective. For me the book is composed clearly because of its simple yet y descriptive
Without literary devices, the stories you read would be dull and uneventful. This is why Richard Connell effectively uses similes and imagery in “The Most Dangerous Game” to help give it life. In this story, Connell used similes to give the reader a feeling of how things looked or felt. On page 19 the author wrote “...but it was like trying to see through a blanket” (Connell).
Panic, anxiety, and most importantly, fear, are all components that form the adventurous tale, The Most Dangerous Game. Rainsford, the protagonist of the story, is widely recognized as an experienced hunter who ventures off in a ship to travel to Rio in order to hunt jaguars. However, the story turns when Rainsford falls off his ship, encounters a hunter who hunts men, and becomes the prey himself. Although Connell sets up an intense plot by using irony, characterization, word choice, and other literary devices, imagery is one of the main aspects that releases an uneasy feeling within the audience. Imagery is a common literary device that authors use to engage a reader into the story, by painting the scene in the audience’s mind.
Benjamin Franklin once said “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” Authors write something worth reading when they use figurative language to create images of the characters in the reader’s minds. In the stories “Stop The Sun” by Gary Paulsen and “The Pigman” by Paul Zindel, the authors use figurative language to develop the characters. Paul Zindel, the author of “The Pigman”, used figurative language to develop the characters. In the story, the author described one of the characters by saying, “Lorraine is panting to get at the typewriter now, so I’m going to let her before she has a heart attack.”
There are many factors in a story that makes a story more interesting and fun. The book, How to Read Literature Like a Professor for Kids by Thomas C. Foster, introduces some that help readers make a joyful experience while reading. A few important and essential factors are symbolism, having only one story, and little details. Symbolism is very important to novels. It expands our creativity and imagination.
C.S Lewis said, “Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become”. Literature is an appreciable and significant thing in society. However, some literature works happen to have some similarities or parallels in themes or characters with others. Two pieces of literature that do just that are Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and “The Wound Dresser” by Walt Whitman.
Literature is a medium that enables people to effectively express their opinions and perspectives. Being the vast genre that it is, fiction presents writers with the opportunity to utilize literary devices in their pieces. These devices help in communicating the message of the author’s work. Several fictional texts use common literary devices such as metaphors, similes, symbols, and imagery. These devices allow for writers to personally involve readers with the author’s message.
In “How ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ Changed My Life”, Ethan Gilsdorf compares the differences in nerd culture today and when he was a young adult.

What is literature if not an author’s imaginative response to what occurs around them? John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men is a prime example of just that. His experiences living during the Great Depression in America is reflected through the geography in his book and the meanings behind it. The perceived geography of the novel; the river, the barn, and Crooks’s room; is so simplistic to allow the reader to see the effect of more discrete aspects of the setting. As Thomas Foster says in How to Read Literature like a Professor, “Geography is setting, but it’s also (or can be) psychology, attitudes, finance, industry- anything that place can forge in the people who live there.”
Literature usually uses a bias and told from one perspective of a conflict or story. Such an example as shown in a literature poem says, “So through the night rode Paul Revere; And so through the night went his cry of alarm to every Middlesex village and farm,-- A cry of defiance, and not of fear, a voice in
Literary fiction is “… written by someone with serious artistic intentions who hopes to broaden, deepen, and sharpen the reader’s awareness of life (Johnson 57).” Literacy fiction gives the reader a deeper view on the real world aiming the reader to empathize with the characters and others. In the short story, Hunters in the Snow by Tobias Wolff is a prime example of literary fiction, as three men are hunting during a snow storm. Through the story, the author has the reader’s emotions shifting and engages the reader into what is going to happen next. Through the struggles of the men hunting in a snow storm, and getting injured the author shows actions of each character that the reader can relate to real world people, such as selfishness and
Every literary work has its own purpose of existence and no literary is the same. There is always literary work for someone to be interested in. the authors use different techniques in order to attract the readers, such as rhythm, rhyme, characters, settings, characters, theme, and conflict and other techniques. One of the elements that literature allow the readers to use is the imagination in order to visualize what the author message is in his story or poem. Some stories, poems or drama are based from the writer’s personal experience, such as the conflict with they have with society because of their race, gender or ethnicity.
