Words, Words, Words "Don't judge a book by its cover" is a turn of phrase which cautions one to truly know and understand a person before passing judgment upon them. In literature, this is the duty of the author: to introduce his or her readers to the characters; to let the readers get inside the heads of the characters and see the world from their perspective. In the realtivism of the literary universe, only through empathy can character be judged. Some authors hold the reader's hand and tell them exactly what to think about a character; they spell out exactly what that character's motivations are and whether these are congruous with the morals of the world the author has crafted. Other authors, such as William Faulker, leave the challenge up to the reader.
There are many features that contribute to the quality of a story. It is important for authors of stories to take these features in to account in order to produce a story able to captivate the interest of the readers while leaving the desired message with the reader. Both conflict and plot are necessary elements of a satisfying story. Conflict is essential to a story because it is the feature that keeps the story moving. Without conflict there would be nothing to create suspense, nothing to play on the emotions of readers and force them to feel sympathy or compassion towards the characters.
Reading multicultural literature is not merely for pleasure, it is also for knowledge and understanding.

He writes as an artist with a painting. It says one thing directly, but underneath you can find a whole different meaning to the story. I enjoyed his style of writing though I do not like this kind of fiction. I thought that he wrote it as a parent would tell a story to a child. I believe that you if you read this you will see a change in yourself towards others, especially those who are close and dear to you.

Literary Analysis of Conflicts within “Soldier’s Home” Ernest Hemingway’s “Soldier’s Home” is a short story about one man’s struggle with returning home after war. Harold Krebs had just returned home, later than the majority of the soldiers, resulting in a dull welcoming from his town. In order to be heard, Krebs lies about his war experience through elaborated stories. Even though Krebs is home, he is lost- lost in society, lost with love, lost within himself. Although Hemingway does not describe much about what Krebs experienced during the war, it is obvious that this man went through a transformation, and returned with what an outsider looking in would call extreme apathy.

The reader may personalize the interpretation of the symbols, or it could be dictated by the author.
