Theme: one of the primary goals of literary works is to ensure that the audience 's attention is captured and that it is able to derive suitable information by reading the stories. In the short stories by Bartleby and Stephen, conflict is a central point that is addressed. The authors use repetition of writing in addressing the divisions that exist among the characters. Bartleby, for instance, focuses on the confrontations that are evident in his workplace. Repetition of the statement "I would prefer not to" by Bartley symbolizes confrontations in the narrative.
She enhances her theme through the manipulation of plot and the use of women as her central character. Morrison proves the notion that women are effective character in depicting theme that deal with the social issue of craving material wealth. Also the role of the social class in the story is the issue of class separation and struggle, though they may appear at first glance to be unimportant, but they are in fact the central points around which the story revolves. Class differences affect the ways in which the characters interact with one another. Nowhere in the story "Recitatif" is this more apparent than in the meeting between Roberta and Twyla's mothers at the orphanage.
Of all the genres, fiction is a literary artwork that uses imagination to tell a story that is partly or entirely not true to life (Kennedy & Gioia, 2013a). With fiction, the theme is one of the important key elements of the fundamentals in writing stories. A theme is, “whatever general idea or insight the entire story reveals” (Kennedy & Gioia, 2013b). In the fictional stories, A Rose for Emily and The Storm, the theme emphasizes how love and hate can have a great impact in the lives of people. In the cycle of life, humanity is predestined to fall in love with each other.
Literature is composed with many thoughts and ideas, the limitations are miniscule. For example, Sylvia Plath formulated her experiences and time period into a plot to compose her novel. As the book progresses, the protagonist provides insight on her journey and struggle to find happiness. In The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath utilizes an autobiographical protagonist to express purity versus impurity, as well as mind versus body in a world of double standards. Before one understands how Plath's experiences were influential upon her writing, it is crucial to know about her as an individual.
Allegories are used for many reasons, such as debating about politics, or create moral meanings, but what intrigues me is that authors are able to express their ideas on controversies going on in the world with their stories, at the same time, it give a better context to the story, and give a peek of how it would feel if the reader was in the situation, just with an allegory. Kate Chopin, most assumedly, was a supporter of the feminist movement, and she showed her support of the women’s movement through her allegories, for example her short story “The Story of an Hour.” "Story of an Hour” starts out with Richard, Brently Mallard’s friend, came home with terrible news that Louise Mallard’s husband, Brently Mallard died in a train accident.
The Essence Of Tools Of Fiction A story relies on the backdrop of themes, symbols and figurative language. They are the pieces that construct the puzzle of narrative together. Fiction commonly incorporates a writer manipulating truth in one way or another, and this idea is seen in Flannery O Connor’s, A Good Man is Hard to Find, and Kate Chopin’s, The Story of an Hour. The way a theme enhances narrative, the way symbols effect readers and the way language explores characters will be discussed in this paper. Flannery O Connor heavily depends upon themes and symbols to define her narrative.
One of the most important elements of a story, whether it’s a Shakespeare play, a science- fiction or a Harlem renaissance story, is the use of characters. Authors use their characters to help assist them in getting their message across the reader. In her short story “Spunk” Zora Neale Hurston uses her characters to help develop the plot line while also showing how dramatic a character can change. With the help of the community members, Joe finally stands up to Spunk, (the towns strong man.) Through this ordeal, Spunk is forever changed for this is the moment that caused him to open up something that fear would take control over.
It is through this that we learn the authentic, underlying story that the writer wanted to tell; the one of the real Hedda and her struggle for freedom in order to overcome the constraints of society. As the play progresses, we become aware of the different symbols and how each one is a representation of something much deeper than it firsts appears. In this essay I have made reference to a few symbols such as the pistols, the piano, the character of Hedda and the importance of hair. There are many more symbols which feature in the play which would require further examination such as Lövborg’s manuscript; the child and binding love of George and Thea, and a symbol of the future. However, I have discussed the symbols that interested me, as a reader.
The drama and the novel are compounded of the same element but drama the literary elements is bound with facts and logics. A Novel can take any turn as per the wish of the author but it should be sensitive and meaningful to the readers. The novel is a fluid form of art and that enables it to give a fuller and more varied representation of real life and character than any other form of literature. The novel combines the narrations and fantasy, social criticisms and the presentation of the life patterns of the society. The novel has a place in the literature of all nations.
Introduction The paper throws light on the major features of language that Arundhati Roy has deployed in her novel The God of Small Thing, the novel that won her The Man Booker Prize. Roy, through her creativity of language, makes an attempt to capture and represent the reality. The novelist comes up with certain strategies. She brings about certain linguistic innovations, by shaping and molding the language as it is not readily available, to capture Indian sensibility and present it in all its cultural dimensions. The novelist makes the use of the language very creatively to develop the characters and plot through the interference of the local language, the use of capitalization, and child-speak.
