The short story “A Good Man is Hard to Find” is revolved around many distortions that the author O’Connor creates to build meaning within the story. The novel presents characters that are characterized through many different symbols that result in an uncanny feeling for the reader. O’Connor’s “place” is the distortion in the story that causes conflict, creating the uncanny feeling in the story. O’Connor’s “place” also represents a different variety of symbols, creating the necessary meaning of the psychological realism. O’Connor utilizes distortion to create meaning in the story within her characters who represent the conflicts within the Catholic Church and dramatizes it with a complicated sense of humor.
One of the recurring symbols in the film is the wind that continually swirls around Sister Aloysius. More than once, Sister Aloysius closes windows to shut out the winds that she complains have “changed,” that she describes as peripatetic, that buffet things around and about. But the winds of change that Sister Aloysius despises are embraced by Flynn, who alludes in his final and farewell sermon to the winds that push us along through life. So the winds of change that threaten the church from Sister Aloysius’s point of view are the winds of fate that propel us to progress for Father Flynn and, perhaps, the church. Here the wind symbolizes a challenge to authority in the form of progressive reform, and the Spirit unsettles and disrupts.

Innovative authors have the skills to portray the stream of consciousness with the well-arrangement of details and language. Author, James Joyce, accomplished on conveying the stream of consciousness in the story, “A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man” through the natural order of childish to confusing tones with the use of diction. Likewise, Joyce’s syntactical structure moves from telegraphic, to polysyndeton and finally to loose sentences in order to express the various conscious reactions of the protagonist. To begin with, James Joyce’s use of concrete to abstract diction portrays a childish and confusing tone based on the protagonist’s stream of consciousness. The concrete diction in the beginning of the passage such as “moocow” and
Pessimism and sorrow cohesive with war and malice lie in deception to create a ruse for innocent individuals. A Separate Peace is a pessimistic novel due its involvement with war, malice, and sorrow. This is due to its revolution around World War II, Gene’s malice towards Finny, and a murder caused by an unlikely source. The thought of war routinely forces sorrow like clothes given on Christmas, which brings sadness. The first reason why A Separate Peace is pessimistic is because it revolves around war, which is a time of death and sorrow.
My use of the theme of isolation through metaphor and setting in the short story “Starship” is effective because it helps reinforce the struggle of marriage and the alienation that both Jake and Abigail are experiencing. Placing the speaker in a setting that is away from her husband coherently reflects the divide and thus the isolation between the couple. “He shuts the door. […]I make my way downstairs […] and quietly step out the door into the ripening night”. The speaker’s inner hurt and isolation is matched by the quiet, post-rain night that is interrupted by the sound of a motorcycle engine.
First off, Citizen Kane has an interesting interaction of still shots of a some type of castle, which is lead on to be creepy by the music in the background. The music creates a type of suspense or even a sense of curiosity. It sparks questions of to of why we are looking at this castle and slowly moving closer and closer. Music creates a build up until we see a body drop what looked like a snow globe or something, then it decrescendos to allow for the words to be mumbled out. In this intro if there were some type of cheery music going up to the caste it would not fit at all and would create an inaccurate idea of what may be about to happen or how the plot were to devolve in this movie.

I used persuasion in the method of asking question in the text in order to make Daisy feel sorry for herself from what she have done regarding her actions.

Moreover, the text also draws my interpretation of Nick’s character in the novel. Word Count: 167 Task: Dear Daisy, How did you have the strength to leave without attending Gatsby’s funeral?

In the three passages written by Poe (The Masque of the Red Death, The Tell-Tale Heart, and The Cask of Amontillado), their settings contribute to their mood and to their tone. Poe chose the settings of his passages very wisely. He always thought about how they would affect the story and what role they would play in the reader 's understanding of the mood and/or the tone. The setting in each of these passages is different, However they are also somewhat alike. So the mood and the tone of the three passages (The Masque of the Red Death, The Tell-Tale Heart, and The Cask of Amontillado) have similar aspects, however they also have some different ones, simultaneously.
The whole forest was peopled with frightful sounds the creaking of the trees, the howling of wild beasts, and the yell of Indians; while sometimes the wind tolled like a distant church-bell, and sometimes gave a broad roar around the traveler, as if all Nature were laughing him to scorn. But he was himself the chief horror of the scene and shrank not from its other horrors (59).

Why does the grandmother gets “redeemed” a distinction the end of the story, but not Young Goodman Brown, did she honestly got saved? The story begins with
