I am fond of the word choice that makes us as readers feel like we 're actually in the story experiencing the events that take place. The amount of verisimilitude in the story is intriguing because they are closely related to real life events. I admire these sections. The best part of the story is that the protagonist always ends up enduring the many hardships. Foreshadowing is prevalent throughout the beginning chapters
O’brien manipulates the use of silence throughout his novel to further enhance the reader 's imagination to get as close as they can to being as emotionally impacted the way O’brien was while experiencing the stories first-hand. Silence alone plays a major role within the book in which it helps set up a contrast between the real and the fake, and the stories and the present. Throughout the entire book, O’brien seems to be invested in describing his situations as thoroughly as possible; sound especially he seems engulfed into, considering that in the book alone he
Both Kurt Vonnegut and Sherman Alexie utilize unreliable narrators in this exact fashion with their novels “Slaughterhouse-Five” and “Flight”. Throughout Flight and Slaughterhouse Five, both authors utilize this element in order to push forth their intended theme of anti-violence. Throughout their respective plots, we can see evidence of Billy Pilgrim, the main character of Vonnegut’s novel, and Zits, the protagonist of Alexie’s story, both being unreliable narrators due to confirmation throughout each novel and the wild ideas within each character’s minds. Furthermore, we can connect the existence of the two character’s status of unreliable narrators to show how their unreliability is used in order to weave both novel’s themes of
John Hale known as the witch hunter in Salem inspires fear when his name is spoken ,instead John Hale was a good person because he didn’t really want to kill anyone ,just wanted to save them before they fully went to the Devils side and sign his book ,and he did whatever he cool to help save the accused.

Get out. For pity’s sake, don’t come out here.” (Ellis 7) Builds suspense in the story because in all these dialogues compel the reader to ponder what the three strangers are going to do to Amy, these dialogues make the reader consider if those three strangers really are human, and makes them reflect on whether if everything that happened to Amy was real. Supernatural characteristics like the foul smell coming from
She is merely vowing to assist Macbeth in fulfilling the supernatural prophecies. Surely this writer isn’t misogynistic enough to construct his Lady Macbeth as the sole culprit of the heinous crimes committed in Shakespeare’s masterpiece? I swear to Hecate, this writer better hope that it’s just this song. [Flipping through the script a bit, her eyes scan over a page or two
Annie Dillard, author of "An American Childhood" and Luis Rodriguez, author of "Always Running" describe dramatic encounters with unique writing strategies and styles. The reader can identify other similarities and differences throughout their stories-as well as their use of sentence structure and verbiage to aid the dramatism. In the article, "An American Childhood", Dillard builds suspense and uses the element of surprise by giving only small bits of information at a time; the reader obviously knows that there will be two outcomes of the chase, either being caught or getting away; but as the story progresses, the reader can never be too sure, which is creating the suspenseful uncertainty and thrill. The story takes off when the group of children throw a snowball at a man 's car. When the snowball misses their target, which is the man 's Buick and hits the his face instead, he steps out of the vehicle running towards them in fury.
When reading a novel, a reader will often imagine the outcome of the story based on the scenarios built by the author or narrator. In Pudd’nhead Wilson, The Great Gatsby and The Reservation Blues, however, the distinction between the expectation of the readers and the outcome of the story generates a sense of irony. The authors in all three texts use foil pairs to create that kind of conflict. They plot the story so that what we expect to happen on one person, according to one’s characteristics, actually happens on the other. The contrast between readers’ mind set and the ending of the stories suggests that all readers judge the characters based on their actions and assume a denouement for them.
Miller tries to explain, "The Crucible was an act of desperation" (1213). Arthur Miller tries to explain the Salem Witch Trials through this novel and the movie, by giving detailed scripts to put an imaginable thought into the readers mind. They can keep up with the novel by being able to picture how it goes or how they wish for it to go. An article also states that, "...more than 250 years later- that Massachusetts formally apologized for the events of 1692" (Blumberg). The readers may have various opinions on what The Crucible is trying to explain throughout the book.
The full understanding of this process is found in Scout Finch’s narration of the novel when events unfold into their actual form. Things are not always what they appear to be, for reality often seems to bend around certain circumstances. To commence, one thing that appears to contrast actual reality in both the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, and the present time is the use of lies to bend the truth.This is formally shown in the trial case of Robinson versus Ewell when Atticus is questioning Mayella Ewell on the events that brought about the trial. Atticus questions, “do you remember him beating you about the face? Mayella was silent… ‘No, I don 't recollect if he hit me.
In all three novels “The Feather Pillow” by Horacio Quiroga, “Prey” by Richard Matherson, and “ The Devil and Tom Walker” by Washington Irving all have an eloquent amount of elements all including Mystery/ambiguity: and a supernatural force included in their short stories. The authors purpose for these elements are to give the reader a thrill of mystery and supernatural forces that defy the nature of our world and fill the story with action, all wile keeping the reader reading to the end wile keeping them on the edge of their seat waiting to see what happens next.

The Founding Fathers desperately feared that a breakdown in the federal government would result in civil war. Their conflict also draws attention to how well these Founding Brothers tended to know one another. Hamilton and Burr had worked together on the battlefield and in the early legislation halls, all of which is true of most of the figures Ellis speaks about. He also introduces the crucial themes of his book: the importance of compromise, the centrality of the specific relationships in the early Union, and the strict expectations that these Founding Fathers had for one another. Finally, Ellis 's research in this chapter reveals his desire to uncover factual
Since the author was writing to herself (her diary), she didn’t have to make herself look good or appealing. She could write the whole truth and no one would judge her because no one was supposed to see her diary. Because the author wrote with no incentive to lie, her work appears very reliable. Also with the things she wrote, no one would write that as a lie because that is a side that most try with all their might to hide. Go Ask Alice was a good book to read and kept my attention throughout the entirety.
This story does not show flash-backs, flash-forwards or foreshadowing. The reader may find this story suspenseful. This short story affected me because I never realized just how dark someone could be to kill someone they loved even if they were done wrong. My impression of this story is that it is definitely
