This is done by providing relevant & descriptive information. Another strength is the author’s gripping voice, as well as that the author writes as if he talking to the reader. On the negative side, there is only one major weakness, and its the very abrupt transitions between his topics The author isn’t taking a stance in an argument in this article; it is written with the mindset that being unconventional is good. This mindset is conveyed very well to reader by the end of the article. The data Gladwell presents is credible as it comes from primary sources such as Ranadive himself and quotes from Lawrence’s diary and other reliable sources such as the late general Maurice de Saxe.
From the outset, Richard makes his evil intent clear, noting cynically and declaratively “Since I cannot prove a lover … I am determined to prove a villain,” revealing that power itself has not corrupted him, but the desire for it. It is clear that Richard is aware of his destruction of the Great Chain of Being, when he alludes to the concept, euphemistically noting “God take King Edward
His style of writing is like no other, he is very eloquent in the way he sets up his scenes, and the way his characters interact with one another. Even though Wolfe’s style is very eloquent, there are still holes in the story to where the reader has to really think about what is really happening and figure out where the story is going to go from that point. This short story has received much recognition, including the Nebula and Locus Awards for short stories. It is very drawn out and Wolfe seems to have mapped out each scene, character and theme in a very detailed manner. He is able to hurl the reader right into the story without taking forever to do it.
Through the surface of the narration from Tim O’Brien, the reader witnesses sort of a confusing and hard to grasp idea. One of the main points that O’Brien tries to relate is that true war stories are no in actuality all true. This idea is seen through O’Brien’s narration which makes him seem unbalanced. For example, O’Brien wants the reader to notice that sometimes the Unbelievable is the truth and the believable is
Imagery is used to show Plath as an aggressive person, such as through the line “smash it into kindling”. The emotive line “The bloody end of the skein” creates the sense of abandonment and eternal suffering that by no means that one could be aware of. It suggests that Plath’s mind, the labyrinth, was something that Hughes struggled to understand, and propose that her psyche was beyond his control. He also utilises speech in The Minotaur, creating a sense of truth in Hughes’ part. While he is not seen as a saint within the poem (he remarks in a sarcastic matter to Plath in the poem), he positions the reader to empathise with him, painting the image that he is the placid one in the relationship, and the one who encourages her to embark on her creative pursuits “Get that shoulder under your stanzas/ And we’ll be away.”.
Intention is used commonly and very clear in this novel. The author uses a lot of rhetorical questions to get the reader thinking. He lures in the reader with a lot of dramatic irony to get the reader thinking. His intention is for the reader to keep flipping the pages in order to figure out the true ending to the story. In the story the writer begins it with a causal story line, he later follows it with very elusive and interesting concepts to help build the story up to its climax.
In Enduring Love, McEwan utilises a number of different Narrative devices to further push the storyline’s pace, as well as involving the reader more deeply in the plot. The first notable one of these is his use of the time stream. The author (and thus the narrator) is seen to manipulate this with impunity – pausing, fast-forwarding and rewinding it at will. This is used at once in the beginning chapter to not only present us with a ‘panoramic’ view of the events about to unfold and the circumstances surrounding them, but also to heighten the suspense of the circumstances – how will the tragedy that has been eluded to occur? The narrator himself admits fully to using this device – he states that he’s ‘holding back, delaying the information’.
In Ray Bradbury’s novel ‘Fahrenheit 451’ Bradbury explores the development of his protagonist Guy Montag. Guy gradually increases to rebel the dystopian society in which he is inhabited. Bradbury investigates this through a wide range of literary techniques to convey the development of his protagonist. At first, the reader is shown that Montag is pleased and contented with his life. This is proved by the effective and striking first line; ‘It was a pleasure to burn’ The reader may be potentially shocked at the interesting word choice as the noun ‘pleasure’ – which has strong positive connotations and linked with happiness and enjoyment – is juxtaposed with ‘burn’ which is associated with destruction.
As Haddon is writing the story from Christopher’s perspective, he is reciting the story through the use of Christopher’s characteristics, such as the opening sentence being only three words – “I see everything.” This connotes a feeling that Christopher only wants to get his point across, without having to waffle around with anything else, therefore making his sentences short and precise. Then, he proceeds to illustrate the point by explaining the difference between his perceptions and those of normal people. He uses another short sentence again later on in the chapter by saying “this is the joke.” Again, this implies that he just wants to get his point to the reader without having to go into too much detail. Haddon uses lists and images evidently in this chapter so that he could, again, show the reader the characteristics of Christopher’s condition. He uses the lists to compare the difference of people’s points of view about the field that he was in, with his own.
Theme Theme is the basic concept of a story. You could write it in one sentence and have it all right there in front of you and understand a story before even reading it. Instead, the author wants to teach us this by putting his theme into a situation where we can see it reoccurring. When we empathize with characters in a novel, that's us connecting to the universal truth that's being given. This sounds kind of like the moral of a story but its slightly different.
