Instead of setting, Susan Hill uses her choice of specific verbs, adjectives, and sentence structure to make the reader feel like Arthur Kipps and so empathise with him more than ever. Tension is strengthened by the chapter being also the title of the book; the whole novel has been building up to this point. “’You told me that night’ I took a deep breath to try and calm myself. ‘A child-a child in Crythin Gifford has always died.’” While not the most subtle of foreshadowing, this prophecy heightens the tension by adding another threat. Susan Hill uses contrasting comparisons to create tension.
She closes her eyes and hears the doctor whispering about her to her daughter Cornelia. This upsets Granny, so she begins to mentally tear her own daughter down by listing her faults. Throughout the story Granny has a lot of things to do that she plans to get done the next day, she thinks. Most of all she wants to get rid of a box of old love letters that she doesn’t want her children to see. She tries to rest throughout the day but she is aggravated by the blue tint of the light in the room from a lamp shade.
Chopin’s use of literary devices such as imagery, irony, foreshadowing and symbolism perfectly carves out the conditional love of Armand for Désirée and their child; however, Chopin uses these same devices to enhance the unconditional love of Désirée’s mother for her daughter and grandchild. Armand’s love for Désirée is the epitome of conditional love. This is prevalent throughout the story - from the moment he falls in love with her until the moment he banishes her from his home and his life. Initially, Armand is struck by love so suddenly, it seems nearly impossible: “...as if struck by a pistol shot” (1). The simple imagery used her foreshadows the inevitable quick disappearance of Armand’s love as it creates a stigma of provisionalism in his emotions.
“For the girl grew to be beautiful and gentle, affectionate and sincere.”(Desiree 1) By these quote the author’s description makes the characters from the story more realistics for the reader. In “Desiree’s Baby” by Kate Chopin uses direct and indirect characterization to describe the character of Madame Valmonde, Desiree, and Armand Aubigny. Characterization is the process by which the writer reveals the personality of a character. Direct characterization tells the audience what the personality of a character is. It actually tells you why that person is how it is in the story why he is mean or why he is a lonely, caring, loving person.
Both the play and the short story showed the stories excellent ways of literature. They both included the main theme of do not mess with fate. They also showed me many other things. To begin with, the play was different in many small details. The character Sergeant-Major Morris, who was a man in the story and who gave the Whites the paw, was now switched with his wife, whom proclaims that he died.
Throughout Chopin’s short story, Mrs. Mallard was only identified by her first name one time, and it was by her sister. The fact that Mrs. Mallard was only identified by her husband’s last name shows how she did not have a personal identity of her own and shows another way that Mrs. Mallard was trapped under her husband’s rule through marriage. Chopin also uses irony in her short story with Mrs. Mallard’s death at the end of the story when her husband returned home alive. “The irony of Mr. Mallard returning alive is like the loaded gun of melodrama” (Ewell.) When Mr. Mallard returns home, Mrs. Mallard was sitting in a comfy armchair thinking of her new found freedom and independence in her husband’s death.
In a book review, plot summary only provides support to the primary analysis of the book’s content. It is incorporated only when necessary, or presented as a brief segment in the start of review. A book review is also not just a book summary. A book summary for non-fictional work briefly refers to the main point covered in the book, whereas for fictional work it describes the plot summary, theme of the book and main characters. 2.
Juliet did not, showing her distrust or dislike of her mother, and even married without a word to either of her parents. Lady Capulet is also insensitive because when Nurse speaks of Juliet’s childhood, Lady Capulet tells her to be quiet, as if she is speaking of something unnecessary. Lady Capulet says, “Enough of this. I pray thee hold thy peace.” (Act I, Scene III, Line 53) This is insensitive of her because Nurse took care of her daughter and is recounting memories of her development as a person, and Lady Capulet waves this all away in her bore of what makes Juliet truly
In Louise Glück’s poem “Terminal Resemblance,” the speaker tells about her relationship, or lack thereof, with her father. The speaker explains a relationship with their father, saying it is not existent. They have a conversation that is supposed to be meaningful, considering he is dying, but it seems to have no meaning to her at all. The speaker wishes her father the best and leaves him and her mother at the door, with the same relationship she had with him before. The poem seems to be about how the speaker does not have a relationship with her father and the news she receives of him dying soon has made her realize that she wants to pursue one with him and start fresh.
This just shows how much anger she’s taking out on the poem. Her attitude shown to her sister however is shown in a way she is excluding her sister from the family. ‘My father’, ‘my mother’. This is where Christina excludes her sister from the family by saying ‘my’, and doesn’t say our. ‘My father may sleep in Paradise, my mother at Heaven-gate, but Sister Maude shall get no sleep either early or late’.
