Thought Provoking Stories “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker and “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin are great examples of various literary elements. The authors’ use of these elements creates reliability of information, a deeper meaning beyond the plot, and in-depth development of characters.

William Shakespeare used mythology and lore in his plays to portray imagery, contrast characters and foreshadow various aspect of the plot in an effort to emphasized suspense and ameliorate the play. In Hamlet, Shakespeare often blended mythological and biblical references into his literary work as a means of grasping the reader’s attention to a specific theme or dilemma within the play.

Authors often use vivid descriptions and sensory enriched words to attract one of the five major senses (hearing, touch, taste, smell and sight) to convey an action, image or event; the lure of the imagery is what keeps the reader attuned.
