Proposal Thesis: 1. Device: the device that is prominently used during the novel was symbolism. 2. The use of symbolism is very influential to the text and how it is shaped because each symbol represents a passing/stepping stone in the narrator’s life. When first read, each symbol may seem unimportant but as I further read into the text each symbol became the entirety of the novel.
Nash 1 Lucas W. Nash Dr. Connally English 1020.60 5 October 2014 Analysis of Symbolism: A Birthmark and a Black Veil Nathaniel Hawthorne utilizes symbolism to convey his central themes and ideas to the reader throughout his works and his short stories The Birthmark (1843) and The Minister’s Black Veil (1836) are no exception. A comparative analysis of the heavy-handed symbolism used in these two short stories reveals Hawthorne’s style in his approach to creating his personal narrative of the human condition and also, as I believe these works show, how the effectiveness of these symbols differ as a result of the contemporary cultural context in which they are read. In this paper I am going to display this analysis in four sections. The first section will contain a brief overview of Hawthorne’s works and the central theme that overlies them. Second, I am going to briefly explain the plots of both The Birth Mark and The Minister’s Black Veil including the main uses of symbolism in each.
‘ what did the boy’s think about that load of crap?” something was dawning on me.

Both authors have successfully used literary techniques, such as narration and use of themes, to strengthen the message their novel is trying to convey and consequently engage and enthrall the reader. Narration is used by an author to illustrate the message the novel is trying to convey through a certain character’s perspective. If used effectively, the audience will be manipulated to feel a certain emotion or be positioned into the context of the novel so the meaning of the novel will be conveyed. 1984 is a novel that was written in 1948 by George Orwell as a warning to the future world about the dangers of a totalitarian society. 1984 features a 3rd person limited narration, through the focal character Winston; a common, insular man who the reader can easily relate to due to his human flaws.
This plot structure uniquely allows Shelley to frame the story, add depth to it, and allow readers to see and appreciate the strong similarities between the three narrators. By constructing the story in this fashion, Shelley is ultimately able to give purpose to this unusual method of writing and create an original and intriguing plotline. Shelley’s interesting method of framing the story, while at first seems awkward and unnecessary, eventually develops into a recognizable and admirable framing of the story, putting events in a more presentable order and allowing for much greater suspense and foreshadowing. By starting the novel from the perspective of Walton, Shelley allows Victor’s story to be told in the form of that, a story, where such a style would usually seem an odd way to start a book. It also presents the opportunity to foreshadow future events and build suspense, both of which are important aspects of popular literature in the time that the novel was written.
This novel uses the emotions of the narrator, the actions and events in the story and the way that they connect with and clearly stem from society at the time that the novel was written, to make the novel easy to relate to for a reader and allows them to take on board the lessons and themes of The Handmaid's Tale in a more personal and meaningful way. A fictional novel can be made to feel real to a reader by use of details. If a book uses a lot of small details and intricacies it creates a world around the novel that can feel convincing and suck the reader in. Often books that invent a world tend to play off the world that already exists around them and then alter things so that the reader has a way 'in' to the plot and a level to connect with it on and then can open their mind to what the author chooses to add. Some famous series that do this include Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling, Lord of the Rings by J.R.R.Tolkein and Naughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman.
