Have you ever wondered why authors use literary devices exactly?. Do you know of the author named Sandra Cisneros?. Authors use literal and figurative language in their text such as similes, metaphors, imagery, and others. They use these in order to express the specific theme of a literary work. One author who benefits from this is Sandra Cisneros, she applies literary devices to communicate her message in The House on Mango Street, a short book.
Rhetorical analysis is an investigation into how someone uses his/her critical reading skills to analyze text. The objective of the rhetorical analysis is the study of how the author writes, instead of what the author wrote. At that point, we need to examine the method that the author uses to attain his goal. According to Jonah G. Willihnganz “A rhetorical analysis is an examination of how a text persuades us of its point of view. It focuses on identifying and investigating the way a text communicates, what strategies it employs to connect to an audience, frame an issue, establish its stakes, make a particular claim, support it, and persuade the audience to accept the claim”.
The writer allows the reader to have a complete view of the story, based on the configuration. It can be used to divert the reader. It can also be indicated that the configuration is an important feature in short stories. Both authors used symbols to support reading. These symbols will help readers have a better understanding of the story.
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.
I agree that both “The Masque of the Red Death” and “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allen Poe can be described as short stories that value symbol over plot. Poe uses various symbols to disclose information or details to the reader, while also leaving components of the story open to interpretation. This symbolism tells its own story within the overall plot, rather than it being explained clearly by the author, cleverly adding to the interest of the read. This effective allegory allows the reader to question their literal understanding of the story, once faced with the deeper philosophical ideas. This means that in the case of these two short stories, symbols are valued over plot.
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.
Do you know what literary devices are? Did you know all books have them? A literary device is the structure used by a writer to show his or her messages. The novel Anthem by Ayn Rand is a perfect example. Ayn Rand uses literary devices such as characterization, point of view, plot, setting, symbols and more to show her messages and story.
“At its most basic, every story is an attempt to answer the question What happened?” (Norton 85) One of the most significant elements in a short story is plot. Plot is construct by authors and they rearrange the character’s action in a consequential way to shape our response and interpretation (Norton 85). In "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" by Joyce Carol Oates and "Sonny's Blues" by James Baldwin, they use similar plot styles that contributes to the process of maturation for characters in the stories. The exposition of a story marks its beginning and introduces the reader to the narrative (Norton 89).
In the stories, The House of The Scorpion and “Two Kinds” by Nancy Farmer and Amy Tan the authors used figurative language to develop the setting and mood. In the novel, The House of The Scorpion the author use figurative language to set the mood, setting, and characters. “. . .
This passage from the essay, “Miss Jewett”, justifies how diction is used to create art in writing. Willa Cather uses words like, “design”, “full of perception and feeling” and “two kinds of making”, to justify how authors’ have the ability to express their feelings through their writing. Authors like Sarah Jewett who was able to portray her feelings towards
The author use these literary devices to enhance the novel. An example of figurative language the author uses in Ender 's game is metaphors. A metaphor is a figure of speech that compares two unlike things. These figure of speeches are used throughout Ender’s game. For example, the author uses a heavy metaphor thought by Valentine when she saw the

In other words, the listener will make his interpretation in the story, and take the parts that seem true to him and ignore the parts that seem false.

So when the alligators become a problem they are taken to a new location which can be the lake by the welcome center, the lake by the summit church, or the one by the solar field. Before Herman the UPD had to call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission but they don’t take alligator calls anymore so then UPD had to settle to trapping them and then calling a Trappers. Trappers kill the alligators (Krebs). So much trouble goes into dealing with an alligator that’s why I strongly believe that we shouldn’t have gators living in the SoVi lake. What’s the point of constantly having to deal with this issue.

When she left the house and let Sykes walk in without warning him, I was glad and hoped he would get bitten since he really deserved it.
