Although, “A Rose for Emily” and “The Outsiders” do have many similarities, including with craft,they do have some differences. Forentence the similes and metaphors used in “The Outsiders” is used for both tragedy and happiness and with “A Rose for Emily” the similes and metaphors are only used for tragedy and sadness. With “The outsiders” the author uses the craft move of the hook through the story as well as the beginning as , for “A Rose for Emily” the author does use good hooks as well but does not use one in the beginning. That goes to show many stories have many similarities, but along with those similarities, there will always be some

After reading and analyzing “A Rose for Emily” I have a better understanding of narration of and how it can be used in a story to complicate the story line. Faulkner tells the story in the third point of view. We don 't ever figure out the narrator 's name but that may help him remain unbiased throughout the story. The way Faulkner uses the narrator to tell the story through the different points of view makes and his narration style makes “A Story for Emily” an exciting story to read. The narration of “A Rose for Emily” is by a regular townsperson.
Scene 2.2 blatantly portrays many themes of the book, such as hysteria. The addition of this scene could be used to further develop these themes and make them more obvious to the audience. In addition, the excluded scene could add some cause for thought on the witchcraft trials and application to real life. Just as Miller saw the witchcraft trials during the Red Scare, the excluded scene could make an audience pause to reflect on how these trials are reflected in modern
This is another example of hopelessness. In comparison, Faulkner’s story also conveys the same theme. In his story “Rose for Emily,” he begins the story with Emily’s death. This is obviously a hopeless situation that cannot be changed. Modernistic authors use situations like these to get their audience to realize that death or sickness is damning, and there isn’t often a “happy” ending.
The second part talks about Jenna’s past, as the detectives try to figure out a truthful explanation of the accident. After arresting Jenna, the detectives feel that something does not seem right; indicating when one says, “You think she might be making it up?” (Mackintosh 188). Thus, leaving the reader searching for clues; the questioning keeps readers interested. To conclude, Mackintosh’s novel is admirable because of her captivating plot with continuous
The narrative progresses linearly, however contains frequent flashbacks to moments that reveal more about Sebastian’s fascination with Daisy. These are introduced at excellent places in the story which intrigue the reader at first as the information provided does not seem relevant, however link cleverly when Sebastian’s necrophilia is revealed. The intriguing first sentence “They’re making a mess of it” (p.2), was an excellent start to the story as I wanted to discover what ‘it’ was, and who ‘they’ were. This example of tension is intensified and carried throughout the text, as the lack of information encouraged me to read further. The tension reaches a peak once Sebastian kills the grave robber, however I still wanted to discover what Sebastian planned to do with Daisy’s corpse.
Dramatic Irony is a literary device used in this play to clearly state one’s characters actions or words but they aren 't clear to the character or other characters. This literary device plays a big part in this play ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, it helps set the plot. This device is used to build a suspense and mystery throughout the play.this brings the attention from the reader to the ignorant actions and words the characters display. In the story it tells you how Don John tried to keep Hero and Claudio from marrying. The audience knew that Hero was a maid and still pure, but Claudio was gullible enough to believe it.this shows the irony of how the characters didn 't know what the reader or audience knew.
Edgar Allan Poe seemed to have a more depressing life then Frankenstein, and he used his difficult life and many literary devices to shape how his stories had an impact on the reader. Just one of these devices is when he uses the setting to get the feeling and the mood across to the reader. This is the most effective tool that Poe uses in his literature. For example in “The Tell Tale Heart” Poe uses the night setting show secrecy and not wanting to be seen coming as well as the city which makes the narrator confess in the end, in “The Cask of Amontillado” he uses the catacomb and the closed off walls to foreshadow the death of Fortunato; finally in “The Masque of the Red Death” he uses the apocalyptic wasteland to give the feeling of abandoned
Things Are Not Always What They Seem Ambition can be a good thing or a bad thing. Shakespeare uses Banquo to underscore to the audience the theme that things are not always as they seem. We see this through the conversation with Macbeth right after the witches’ first prophecy and through his soliloquy in Act 3 as well as through his presence as a ghost at the banquet. The witches told Banquo that “Things are not always what the seem.”They told Banquo good things in his prophecy to trap him. Banquo said, “But ’tis strange.
1. Faulkner used foreshadowing technique in “A Rose for Emily” to supply the story with aided air of mystery. Some examples of foreshadowing are using mysterious built in but readers can see what happens in the story: Emily is a stamp of the old South, but no longer has leverage; Emily’s father sheltered her from a normal life, nobody was ever good enough for Emily; Foreshadowing in the story has been able to use the past so as to create the present showing the effect of what has happened in the
This quote creates interest by making the audience want to know how the fear and hysteria of the witch-hunts affected the people of Salem. This creates an initial interest in the audience, but Arthur Miller has to continue to add new and exciting material to keep the audience interested. The author takes an authorial intrusion to better
American author Flannery O’Connor stated in her essay that “[t]he form of a story gives it meaning which any other form would change.” Gothic writer William Faulkner wrote the story “A Rose for Emily” in five parts not in chronological order so that the reader is engaged throughout the entire story. By using this format, he is able to get across his intentions of Emily to the reader, that she is crazy; however, she is worthy of the town’s care and affection. In Part I, the story opens with Emily’s funeral and all of the town attending. Though, Emily’s death is not what the author wants the reader to focus on, instead, he attempts to get across the image of her house, an old house that “had once been white” and had no one other than a servant has entered the inside for around ten years. On line 18, the author states that Emily’s house is “an eyesore among eyesores.” Gothic literature focuses on the potential evil and uses settings of dark, eerie, and in this case, Emily’s “decay[ing]” house.
The symbol in “A Rose for Emily” was very weak as it was only stated in the title. Also, the location was not very desolate since it was located in a very populated town. But for some gothic stories you have to dig deeper to find the answer. Indeed, “a rose for Emily” had a very strong symbol which was the rose that symbolized that Emily should of gotten an apology for a the gossiping that interfered with her life. Even though A Rose for Emily was in a town the Black Veil was also in a populated area
It’s mainly in the second and third act that the structure begins to falter. The second act should be the promise of the premise in which Megan goes after her goal to clear her name, but the series of events become fragmented and they do not always flow fluidly. In addition, the tone and the events become too surreal, and the plot becomes challenging to follow. The story is a bit too ambitious and becomes misdirected when the plot focuses too much on Lucy Mann and several conspiracy theories of past historical events, like the assassination of JFK. The script also focuses too much on the idea that Megan might be hallucinating and psychotic.
