William Faulkner writes in “Barn Burning,” “. . . this, the cheese which he knew he smelled and the hermetic meat which his intestines believed he smelled coming in intermittent gusts momentary and brief between the other constant one, the smell and sense just a little of fear.
“ Hey, Phil, sorry if I’m interrupting.”, said Punxsutawney. “ It’s alright, what are you here for?”, said Phil. Punxsutawney said, “ I’m here to tell you that it’s time to go eat.” Phil said, “ Alright, I’ll be there in a second.” That gives me an idea, how about I tell you what we eat. We usually like to profuse our food and eat primarily wild grasses and other vegetation, including berries and agricultural crops, when available.

In the story, the rabbit was very cheerful and optimistic and threw himself into looking for the carrot, totally convinced that he would find it. This event in the plot shows that the rabbit has the positive attitude needed for the task at hand, even though it may be a daunting task. In the resolution of the story, the rabbit dug a tunnel to right under where the dog had been lying all that time, and there he found the bone. Because of this, the readers are well aware of how the pessimism, bad attitude, of the dog kept him from finding the prize. Had he had a different attitude, the outcome would have been
Diction refers to the choice of words used by a writer in relation to the tone and the point the writer wants to get across. Often times effective diction involves the use of potent words. King used diction within his speech through attention-grabbing words like “oppression,” “withering,” “refuse,” and “tranquilizing.” A strong choice of words eludes to a stronger and larger impact upon the audience (“Martin”). Effective speeches and works of literature use a multitude of devices and techniques. Writers use these devices in order to deliver a specific message to the targeted audience in a way that is memorable.
Let’s face it. Starting to write a novel an essay, or an article has become one of the many challenging tasks facing humanity. One has to think of a perfect sentence to start, otherwise the readers will be sleeping before reading the first phrase. However, in the novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, the author makes use of literary devices with the purpose of introducing the readers to the plot of the story and developing the protagonist. Bradbury has decided to start the novel with a powerful sentence that says “It was a pleasure to burn”.
The Book Thief was one of my favorite books that I have read so far, the author, Markus Zusak used imagery and used foreshadowing to prepare the reader for more important events.The author switches from the first person and third person point of view and how it gave you different perspectives.In the book, there's a sad tone and some humor in the book as well. The author uses flashbacks to inform the reader of previous events.The author used the first person because he wanted to switch from character to character and to make the story more interesting.He uses symbolism in the novel and he did that, it made the story more entertaining and unique.

The changes were made to add drama and suspense to the story. Capote balances out the nonfiction and novel part of his book, carefully modifying facts to limit his account’s distance from the actual truth. Capote did what he needed to do in order to make his book as compelling as possible with the expense of sticking with the facts. He shows how two contrasting writing styles can coexist in the same literary work. Truman Capote explores beyond the classic literary genres and opens the door for other authors to experiment with a new writing
This literary tool is used a number of times, most commonly imagery. Bradbury uses imagery in the text to create an image in the reader’s mind to then deliver the underlying message of the plot to the audience. Using such gives a deeper description of what is being told, “Montag had only an instant to read a line, but it blazed in his mind for the next minute as if it stamped there with fiery steel”. (Bradbury, 37) With this statement the reader is implanted with how much of a burning passion that Montag has grown for books and reading. As Bradbury’s hands finish the creation that is Montag, the reader is apt with information about the characters and ideas that run continuously through the story.
Why do writers use literary tools to create meaning? Authors can use almost any literary device to add to a story's depth.If literary tools was not used, an author's story would not be complete. Some stories might use only one tool, and some might use several. A story must use tools to intrigue the story's audience. Ray Bradbury's stories are filled with foreshadowing, imagery, characterization, and other tools to make his stories catch his audience's attention.
Students should learn about the value the novel provides from that time-period in which Mark Twain wrote, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Twain put the N word in the novel for a reason, to describe the time-period in which these events had occurred. Phillip Rawls writes, “‘It’s such a shame that one word should be a barrier between a marvelous reading experience and a lot of readers,’ Gribben said. Yet Twain was particular about his words.” The use of the N word has brought many situations upon readers when coming across it, Rawls describes the idea that there was reasoning behind Twain’s writing. Peter Salwen says, “The great black novelist Ralph Ellison noted how Twain
