I personally agree with Nabokov’s theory about good readers. If we don’t detach ourselves a little from the story we will be too blinded by our emotions to appreciate the real art of the story. A good reader needs a great writer and vice versa. A good reader must comprehend the story through the proper use of his imagination, memory, and artistic sense. Having an imagination is necessary to get deeper in the story, and a good memory is also required to tie the pieces of the story together.
Kaitlyn Castro Dr. LaCrone LIT 2010 2/24/11 2ND Paper Foreshadowing Paul’s Case Without a plot there would be no story. Aristotle, a man before his time, knew this and which is why he claims the plot is the most important part of a story. In ‘Paul’s Case’ just like any other short story, novella or novel there is and will be a plot. Along with a plot there will be a literary device included that will construct the plot before our eyes. Throughout the whole story of ‘Paul’s Case’ the plot device used by Willa Cather is the foreshadowing of minor events throughout the body of the story that will eventually lead to a tied together ending.
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.
characters of a story are its pillars when it comes to fiction writing, and therefore you need to take utmost care when you shape them. In order to make sure that your story is gripping, you need to give due credit to its protagonist and antagonist - both of which share a symbiotic relationship and can't exist without each other. Simply put, the protagonist is most often the 'good guy' in the story, while the antagonist is the 'bad guy' in it. If either of the two are depicted as invincible, the story tends to lose fizz from the very word go. That may sound too obvious piece of advice, but this is one of the most common mistakes we commit when writing fiction.
There are some characters which hold significant role in the story. Based on what they do in the story, I have categorized these characters into two categorizations. The characters in the first categorizations are Shift & Puzzle. These two are the origin for all the following conflicts in the story, so we could consider these two characters as the characters which begin the epic story of The Chronicles of Narnia: the Last Battle, when they decide to make the fake Aslan, because the fake Aslan is the main problem of this book, which is clearly shown in the first chapter. The characters in the second categorizations are Tirian, Jill, Eustace, Jewel, and Poggin.
'Most novels are written to reflect real events in real worlds'. Discuss the features that make a novel you have studied seem realistic (or unrealistic), and explain why realism is appropriate (or inappropriate) to the novel's main themes Many novels reflect true events in the world in some way and are written to feel realistic to the reader. This is to make the ideas in the novel easier to take on board and more relevant to the reader's actual lives. One such novel is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. 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.
Then There Was Two Literary Device Analysis Literary Device : Dramatic Irony Analysis: The literary devices in “Then There Was Too” are utilized to emphasize the details of the short story which contributes to the establishment of an effective plot and theme. In order to effectively enhance the quality of the story, the author uses dramatic irony. This literary device keeps the readers' interest on the story by creating a contrast between the character's present situation and the action that will unfold. It heightens the intensity as it propels a forward motion in the story and by doing this, the plot of the story, is made more interesting. One example is Priapus’ eagerness to meet his daughter’s boyfriend.
Illustration An illustration is a writing pattern which uses examples to show, explain, or prove a point. For this type of writing, there is going to be a main point which the writing is trying to illustrate. The writer does this by giving examples and giving lots of details to support the examples. There should also be enough examples to really reinforce the main point. Narration A narration is basically the telling of a story, but it should have some moral or some other reason why it is important.
What is a short story? A short story is a fictional piece of literature that is intended to captivate an audience in a short period. Certain elements need to be present for it to achieve this goal.
