Keats uses dialogue to tell the story, by using dialogue it allows the reader to connect more with the characters and give the story more realism. Also the voices used in the story can help establish character traits, and so are a part of characterisation, but they also enable Keats to give the readers information. The phrases “My Madeline!

Also, the writer has put enough detail and examples to support each of his points. Lastly the conclusion is well-done.

THotS Essay A narrator “is somebody who tells a story”, well at least that’s what the Encarta Dictionary says. When the point of view of the narrator is from more than one character it is dual narration, or two different narrators. Permitting the reader to be told the same story from two different perspectives, allows additional insight to the novel through the literary technique of foreshadowing. In addition to foreshadowing, Magical Realism takes its toll throughout this book. Being introduced to the same character in multiple circumstances furthers the reader’s familiarity with the characters.

I grabbed him up off of the floor swiftly and gnawed on his limp body. As I reached for my next meal his arm moved and he came alive. It was Beowulf he fought furiously. I was frightened. I imagined him having wings sprouting from his back.
