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.
(Porter 1986, p. 397). In relation to discourse communities, intertextuality is important in assisting writers to conform to the social setting, enabling them to make reasonings that will not distance the individuals from the community, guide them to construct the logical decisions that are in comparison with the philosophy of the group, and become more aware of the peculiarities of a discourse community the more that they socialize. In addition, "acceptability is the key standard for analyzing a writing within a discourse community" (Porter 1986, p. 405). Therefore, a writer's achievement is estimated by their capacity to recognize what can be presupposed, and obtain the community's patterns adequately to make a text that adds to the support or conceivably of the community's
The use of symbolism is often used by authors to show a deeper meaning to an object within a story. These enhancements to the meaning of objects gives readers insight to what is really being represented. Although they may seem vague, they create a path to better understanding of characters and scenarios within a story. A proper use of this technique can be witnessed in Lord of the Flies. In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, symbolism is used to depict a greater meaning within the objects that appear throughout the novel.
In conclusion, when describing the process of passing, the author uses different techniques to provide insightful meaning to the passage. Doing so is emphasized by the diction used to create significant meaning, the supporting of themes presented throughout the novella, and the details regarding arising conflicts throughout the
Challenges in life are inevitable. Whether they are external or internal, they can have a significant impact on the individual. Therefore, one should be thoughtful of his or her response to the challenges he or she is encountering. This idea of one managing to respond to challenges in a myriad of ways is often explored in literature. In the short story "Wing's Chips," Mavis Gallant makes powerful use of character development to suggest that when one is faced with challenges, one may respond with acts of ambition, or one may respond with acts of doubt and insecurity.
All the themes can be developed and how the authors develop into deeper meaning to the story. Gender, Innocence, The home, etc. are all developed differently and in their unique styles of the story. The theme that I'm picking because I feel strong enough to give the explanation is "Identity". Identity is a great example of the theme of the story because it shows who are the characters if the story.
In literature, a common process for the protagonist to go through is to go on a journey in order for them to develop as a character and to further the story as a whole. This idea of a character’s journey is notably seen in Homer’s The Odyssey, Dante’s Inferno, and Voltaire’s Candide. All three of these texts depict not only the protagonist going through a journey, but they also depict in very different ways these characters use their abilities to overcome obstacles in their path and learn from their mistakes to show their individual character development. In The Odyssey, Inferno, and Candide, Odysseus, Dante and Candide show three different ways how ???????? In The Odyssey, Odysseus’ journey is created by a cycle of self-created obstacles that are solved by quick witted thinking and ultimately reflect no real desire to learn from his errors or create any character development.
In the works of Literature an epiphany is “a moment of profound insight or revelation by which a character’s life is greatly altered” (24). In the short story “Cathedral” Raymond Carver uses epiphany to draw on the theme, blinded views can alter someone’s behavior. On the realistic level, epiphany advances the plot and character development because they are the basis for the story’s central action. They also help define the narrator and play a vital part in revealing the story’s theme. The following changes in the character’s views have shown an evident development.
Within the novel “Chronicle of a Death Foretold” it’s shown that the author uses symbolism through the setting of the book to make the novel more interesting and have a more significant or deeper meaning behind it. The author uses key symbols to let us readers know more than just what is on the lines in front of us. By using character’s names the author shows us the difference between how the character is personed versus how they actually act. The author also uses symbols through the setting like the weather or nature, like rivers, birds, and flowers to represent and sometimes even foreshadow
The different uses of point of view in a short story can influence how the reader interprets the text. For example, the short story "Cathedral" incorporates the use of first person. First person point of view is when a narrator conveys an experience from their perspective. By choosing to use first person narrative, the author allows the reader to gain a concise understanding of how the narrator is thinking and feeling. First person narrative is often used because it allows the reader to better understand the context of the text and the story becomes more intimate for the reader.
By going through this process, the writer is forced to think critically and read closely, improving not only their own opinion, but also a better understanding of the original piece and the original author’s ideas. This exchange of ideas helps the writer to engage the reader in a
Living through first perspective not only reveals detailed imagery of the surrounding, but the beliefs, thoughts and fears of Naomi. This will furthermore develop and create new characteristics known to Naomi and her surroundings. The usage of these literary devices allows
Writers can’t help but be influenced by the events and people that they see around them. This is because they can communicate their feelings and/or beliefs about the world around them through characters, setting, and the scale of events in a given text. The influence becomes a part of the work that they write because, like a limb, a writer’s story is a part of them – their mind and imagination. This is clearly portrayed in To Kill a Mockingbird (TKAM) by Harper Lee, who has made extensive use of a microcosm within her characterisations to thoroughly explore a wide range of societal issues. Within TKAM, the essence of the Deep South in the 1930’s is explored through the experiences of a girl named Scout.
The knowledge of how a character would act throughout a story. This knowledge is the key to understanding the development of the character. The author uses this concept to develop their character’s personality and how they would act in specific situations outside their normal “comfort zone”. This concept also helps the reader understand a character 's motivation and purpose in the story. In the case of Holden, his character is always talking to the reader instead of talking to other characters and he focuses himself on trying to preserve the innocence of people.
Considering the many different literary devices used in creating writing, I have chosen several distinct elements, setting, theme, point of view and characterization. These particular devices are essential elements in my toolkit. As a realistic fiction writer the four elements serve a purpose and together they should craft an interesting story. As a result, my first important foundational tool is setting. If the writer cannot capture the reader 's attention through the creative backdrop, settings, then the foundation is not buildable and my story may be weak and uninteresting.
