Although, both Amir and Rahim Khan tell their stories in a formal manner. Hosseini does this to add ferocity to the story, whilst the change of manner of voice suggests a significant change to the reader. Hosseini uses the change of voice to show a turning point within the story as Hassan is brought back to Amir’s memory. The whole chapter is spoken in Rahim Khan’s narrative and is mostly his dialogue in monologue, though readers understand that Amir is listening as he references his presence, ‘‘You’d recognise him.’’ The style of monologue helps tell the story personally so that the readers become involved and indulge in every detail. It also allows sole focus on the story Rahim Khan is telling, once again pointing to extreme significance and importance within the story.
“The Things They Carried” is a text that focuses on writing as a form of coping with trauma and discusses how exaggeration is sometimes needed in a story to convey the message that the story-teller is trying to get at. An example of this is when the author talks about how for Rat Kiley “facts were formed by sensation” (89). Kiley is described as telling his stories as though they are intended to be tragedies, even the funny parts. This is because there is an underlying sadness to every war story, even though humor can be found in them. Part of this may be attributed to the ‘education’ each soldier received when they first went off to the war.

However, though the central topic of her essay may be boring, Zacharias is an excellent writer. She uses pathos, arrangement and logos well to describe her relationship with her father and buzzards. I found pathos everywhere. I felt pathos in the first sentence: “They woof” (260). Zacharias used this line to catch the reader’s attention, which also plays into her chosen arrangement for this piece, and to get some sort of emotion out of the reader.
It greatly influences the story, what will happen in the story, and what theme the story will communicate. The extremely solid characterization of the two main characters, Doodle and his brother, leads to the finale, which communicates the theme. The clear mistakes made in the story, like the excessive and unsupervised rehabilitation of Doodle, that occur because of the characters characterization, really show the reader what the main characters did wrong, and shows that to the reader not to do it either. After all, as it is said in the story, “Pride is a seed that bears to seeds; life and
Definitely not. But is the pattern of the wallpaper interesting and confusing? Probably yes. The author’s use of the first person to convey the story allows readers to go along for the ride into madness and cultivates a certain amount of sympathy for the narrator and her plight. The constant use of "I" puts us right in the narrator’s head and allows us to empathize with her.
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.
Swift’s repetitive creation of his extreme mental images, which appeal to one’s senses, gives the reader a false opinion about him, but subsequently becomes beneficial to his overall essay. The use of imagery in “A Modest Proposal” definitely is exceptionally vivid, and as a result, stirs up an emotional response in the reader (pathos). Swift’s intention to using imagery in his essay is to not only get dramatic reactions from his readers, but to also persuade them so much that they are agreeing with his point of view. In his essay, he offers many different descriptive images in which portray the dehumanization of children and women using words such as “breeders,” “flesh,” “carcass,” and “meat”(1026-1027). One of the disturbing images that Swift creates for his audience dehumanizes children by referring to them as pigs which would be roasted then worn as fancy gloves for females, and as boots for men.
Bennett creates a conversational tone in his monologues, giving the impression that the characters are talking to themselves, reviewing there lives. Lesley’s desperation to be accepted socially is shown by the use of phrases such as ‘I’m interested in interesting people’ in an attempt to sound appealing and ‘interesting’ herself, however Lesley’s ridiculous vocabulary only underlines her social alienation for the audience. Her constant referral to professionalism, insisting she is ‘professional to [her] fingertips’ is similar to Stevens’ constant reiteration that everything he does is for ‘professional reasons’ and his frequent references ‘The Hayes Society’ of butlers. In ‘The Remains of the Day’ Ishiguro adopts the distinctive idiolect traditionally used by Butlers, described as ‘Butler Speak’ and from the offset of the novel this can be observed in Steven’s over complication of phrases that the average person would phrase in a much simpler manner. An example being the first sentence in the novel ‘It seems increasingly likely that I really will undertake the expedition that has been preoccupying my imagination for some days’, an unnecessarily wordy way to convey the point he wanted to make.
Even reading the work he has produced is intimidating in itself. Watching This is Water provides an interesting insight into Wallace’s character. He is very perceptive. He understands humor, strong “down to earth” analogies, and shows clear delivery in his work. While reading his work I feel that Wallace displays arrogance, but after hearing his presentation I see that he reflects a great amount of talent and intellect in the literary
