1 INTRODUCTION This thesis analyzes John Grisham’s novel A Painted House, specifically, how the life of a boy in the 1950s rural South is portrayed. Grisham is mostly known for his legal thrillers, and this novel is important because of author’s deviation from his traditional topics concerning lawyers and legal situations (Pringle 2). The novel covers a few weeks of the end of summer and depicts the protagonist’s life and experiences during the time. It is also important to note that the novel is set around the time that the author was born; therefore, it describes the setting of the time as close as possible. John Grisham was born in 1955, in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and spent there his early years (Pringle 1-2, 65).

This topic expresses the importance of people who have a small part doesn’t necessarily mean they will have a insufficient existence in the story as well. Bradbury expressed this in Fahrenheit 451 on the grounds that it added an important detail in the novel as a way to open the reader’s eyes to the limited details around them and how those slight specifics could have a tremendous outcome in their
Characters are often looked upon as catalysts that instill the qualities of significance and meaningfulness into a story through the methods of characterization and character development. Through these processes, characters gain human-like traits that allow them to be multidimensional and, thus, more believable and relatable. Relatable features of a character provide an incentive for reading a book and create an illusion of realism in the reader’s mind, making the book and the character more appealing. Furthermore, characters yield an additional perspective and shed light on details or topics that might be oblivious to the reader. It can also be an effective way of, indirectly, presenting conflicting sides, criticizing an ideal, or reflecting upon historical events or personal experience.
Authors around the world portray characters by using a set of techniques which are called characterization or character development. Details along the story, dialogues, flashbacks, conflicts and other elements help the audience understand more about the characters life, his or her actions, thoughts and other qualities. Characterization may be either direct or indirect. Direct characterization means that the narrator directly states the characters traits. On the other hand, indirect characterization is when the narrator reveals a characters personality by their thoughts, their behavior and feelings.

The general vision or viewpoint (GVV) of a text relates to the authorial/directorial outlook on life which inevitably influences our perspective on the narrative and the world in which it is set. The vision of an author can be conveyed through the manner in which the plot opens, develops and ends, through characterisation and relationships, the type of society in which the text is located and also through the symbols. Often, the dominant viewpoint of a text can be reflected in a significant event. I agree with the above statement, although the general vision and viewpoint is portrayed by the author/director, it is also the audiences attitude and interpretation that help to clarify the general vision and viewpoint of a text whether it is optimistic or pessimistic. The general vision and viewpoint of “The King’s Speech” (TKS), a film directed by Tom Hooper, is essentially positive and optimistic.
