Furthermore, the author uses multiple examples such as Huckleberry Finn, stories from other countries, and even her own personal experience. The author uses the literary nonfiction genre point of view which is in first-person point of view. Point of view is the perspective from which a piece of writing is narrated. In the essay Nafisi, she used first-person point of view based on the story's tone, the narrator, and the meaning. First person point of view can be described as the narrator participates in the story's action and is the "I" of the story; however, this does not necessarily mean that the narrator is the protagonist.

How to Read Literature Like a Professor – Chapter 8 analysis “We want strangeness in our stories but we want familiarity too. We want a new novel to be not quite like anything we’ve read before. At the same time, we look for it to be sufficiently like other things we’ve read so that we can use those to make sense of it” (Foster 63). -Writers barrow because referencing to works that many are familiar with, such as fairytales creates a familiarity in which readers are comfortable with, which in turn can even help create a better understanding of a story. At the same time, the use of fairytales in a writer’s own work creates a uniqueness which appeals to many readers Why do writers often choose fairytales to barrow from instead of other literature like Shakespeare or Homer?
Both Orwell and Dillard are very good at crafting a story from memory. They both use methods of story telling that engages the reader and makes you want to read more. Orwell carefully uses his words to give you as much feeling and thought as you read his story; where as Dillard writes her story in a way that progresses it with just enough information to keep the story fast and interesting. I believe that I write my stories more in the way Dillard does than Orwell. I usually write a story using minimal information and using just enough atmosphere so that you know what is happening as the story progresses.
ALLUSIONS IN FAHRENHEIT 451 Literary allusions often are used to relate a novel to various other pieces of literary work. Ray Bradbury used a multitude of literary allusions to enrich the plotline of Fahrenheit 451. These references provided subtle hints of depth in the novel to the reader. Some allusions helped the novel by adding to the plot, providing a relatable experience to the reader, referencing familiar stories and fables, and giving characters and settings that special something called an “it factor” that the reader could find special. Some allusions, however, were harmful to the plot or to the reader, most often by confusing the reader if they did not know the context of the original quotation.

The autobiographical nature of the first passage in “Love and Honour and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice” introduces the reader to the apparent truth and reality of the story, signalling also what is to be expected in the rest of the collection. Simultaneously, its use of literary techniques in order to illustrate realism to the reader signals that the story is rooted in artifices and the semblance of truth, as is its nature as a work of fiction. M.H. Abrams defines literary realism as “the everyday, the normal, the pragmatic,” and Le utilises this concept in his opening passage to set the tone of the short story and the collection of work. Images such as
A sense of being that will draw the reader or listener in, as if they themselves were in the story, helping them to feel the surroundings of the character within the pages of the book.

Wuthering Heights is notable for its use of multiple narrative voices intricately woven together to effectively tell a complex story that takes place over many years while reinforcing and enhancing some of the themes the novel explores. There are two main narrative voices introduced early on in the novel, those of Lockwood and Nelly but through these characters the narratives of other characters are also heard through a combination of eye witness accounts and the quoting of letters. In this way, the tertiary narratives from main characters connect together to give a more complete account of events. The multitude of perspectives also gives the reader a deeper sense of immersion with a text which has been described as ‘a story of undying elemental passion’ (da Sousa Correa, 2012, p. 351). To access the thoughts and feelings of the main actors in the novel is to vicariously experience their passions and so their narratives stand out against the more objective narratives of Lockwood and Nelly as well as offering more potential for discussion with other readers who may feel more sympathy for some characters than others.
