It also allows sole focus on the story Rahim Khan is telling, once again pointing to extreme significance and importance within the story. However, alternate voices are also used by Hosseini, such as Hassan’s as Amir recalls his voice promising: ‘’For you, a thousand times over.’’ Hosseini does this to sharpen the story and remind the readers of Hassan and recall past events which eventually add up and fit the puzzle. In addition, Hosseini uses time in order to tell the story of Rahim Khan and Hassan. The events Rahim Khan recalls are fairly chronological and linear, apart from the occasional
Suskind compares the different odours often smelt in France to the odours we find the dirtiest now. For example, the odour of manure, urine, mouldering wood, rat droppings, spoiled cabbage, mutton fat, stale dust, greasy sheets, damp feather beds, and lastly the stench of sulphur from chimneys. All of these odours are rather common ones we can relate too, but they are all also the nastiest of the
Chapter 16 of Khaled Hosseini’s “The Kite Runner” details Rahim Khan’s view point. Hosseini mainly focuses on Amir and Hassan, in this part of the novel. This essay will look at the ways that Hosseini tells the story in chapter 16, and techniques he uses specifically to explain the story. In chapter 16 there are many descriptive features that help the reader feel Rahim’s emotions, subtly. To begin with; this chapter is a complete contrast compared to all of the other chapters, simply because the narrator who is telling the story has completely changed, without notice but you can almost definitely see the change.
Write about some of the ways Fitzgerald tells the story in chapter 2. Fitzgerald uses a variety of narrative techniques including form, structure, language, narrative voice and setting. In chapter 2 in particular, Fitzgerald uses a lot of poetic language to highlight how beautifully Nick describes and explains his surroundings. An example of this would be when Nick gets drunk in New York City; Fitzgerald seizes this opportunity to use Nick’s intoxication to describe in great detail the littlest of things around him. The settings in chapter two contrast enormously with those of chapter one; The ‘Valley of Ashes’ that Tom and Nick travel through at the beginning of chapter two are bleak and miserable: ‘...and, finally, with a transcendent effort, of ash-grey men, who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air.’ This illuminates the repercussions of the American dream that seem to go unnoticed.
“Montmorency” is set in the 1800’s and 1900’s, in Victorian London around Covent gardens and the surrounding area, including Great Ormond street hospital, Also St pauls cathedral and Whitehall. This setting gives the novel a familiar air to it, because of the famous landmarks, which it makes it easier for you, to picture the story in your head. Montmorency has many themes including Conflict, criminal activities, Alter egos and touches on Racism. This makes the book a challenge to read at time because of all the rather depressing issues but if you can see past that, the themes make it a more compelling read. The characterisation of each character differs for 493/Montmorency/scarper.It is hard to give personality traits since he is a spilt personality but one thing you see through out is that he is a kind person at heart as he only steals from stuck-up people and that he is very clever as he concocts this whole scheme by himself.
This drama story helps the readers to understand why a group of teen boys are against the society. Set in London’s Wormsley Common, much of which is heavily damaged during the German bombing of WWII, this story centers on a local gang of boys. After two of its members, Trevor and Blackie, struggle for leadership of the group, the boys decide to systematically destroy one of the last beautiful standing house in the neighborhood. “The Destructors” is a work of literary fiction because of its person versus society conflict that boosts the complexity of moral issues, suspense that helps to enlighten the behaviors and thoughts of the character and its multilayered and complex characterization. One of the elements that makes “The Destructors” a literary fiction is the moral conflict between the characters and society in the story that can’t be defined in terms of clearly moral absolutes: the right thing or wrong thing.
For instance, Mr Collins long, pompous speeches help the reader to realise his character within the novel and how he is a person who is full of pride in himself (which is one of the themes of the novel). Chapter 19 also contains authorial intervention. The authorial intervention in this chapter helps to not only tell the story but commentates the dialogue of the characters “she could not use the short pause he allowed in any attempt to stop him farther, and he continued.” The authorial intervention seems to show Austen’s annoyance towards Mr Collins who seems to constantly talk and helps make the reader sympathise with Elizabeth for being on the other end of his constant speeches. In all, through Austen’s use of the third
Stream of Consciousness: One of the most commonly used literary element in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the stream of consciousness. Stream of consciousness is the portrayal of an individual's point of view and their thought process. Huckleberry Finn narrates the novel, and he often interjects his thoughts on the events. The story is told exclusively from Huck's perspective, and every instance is seen through his eyes. Since the story is told in past tense, Huckleberry Finn's stream of consciousness does not always strictly stick to the events at hand, and he often skips over many days to get to the next part of his tale.
Increased industrial development in the 1970s led to an increase in urbanisation, which Scott believed would severely damage the environment, thus forcing him to present a degraded environment to critique humanity’s exploitative relationship with nature. Endless scenes depict urban decay and the chaos of Asian street life. The opening panning shot with its doomsday imagery depicts Los Angeles as Hades. The neon advertising lights illuminate the sky as opposed to stars, inviting the audience to evaluate the impact of out-of-control capitalism on our planet. The dark and gloomy mean streets emphasise the film noir aspects present in the film, and the slow eerie Vangelis music and constant acid rain is used by Scott to create a melancholy ambience.
His cry – WHOS THERE ITH NAME OF BEELZEBUB (which means devil) further develops the analogy of the the relation of the inverness with hell. Being a porter, it is his duty to welcome guests, but here he referes to the inverness as hell, thus referring to Macbeth as satan. As the porter lists of the different scenarios which refer to the crimes committes by Macbeth, such as stealing, treason & greed. The scene continues with some good natured banter with macduff, which results in the breaking of the
