Shakespeare’s wit and word play used even for simply just the names of the characters can build up laughter. The use of onomatopoeia in Sir Toby’s name creates a humorous
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
Sarah Draper Mrs. Jennings AP English 12 5th period B Shiloh In Bobbie Mason’s short story, “Shiloh” he uses many techniques in order to convey his overall message. Mason uses of similes and metaphors, symbolism and parallelism to help reveal the once happily marrage flaws and now being unhappy. Throughout the shot shory, not only does the author expose the reader to the feelings and actions of the characters but also in the authors eye he high lights the thing needed in order to make a happy marriage. Mason’s creative use of similes and metophors allows the reader to fully understand how the long distances and time can have a negative afect on a persons marriage. In lines 13-15 the rig that Leroy used to drive was compared
I like the comedy, love story with a dramatic twist and I was able to have both of these in these stories. These stories although being short seemed to send a message about marriage and how at times it can be tough and it takes work, in the The Story of an Hour you understand this story was from a very long time ago and the man doesn’t always dominate in the same manner this story implies in this day and age. In the The Secret Life of Walter Mitty you see that he loves his wife and she seems to be the dominate character and so when he is left on his own he dreams of being someone of importance and you can understand that in his marriage he doesn’t feel he is that important so he dreams these silly dreams where he is somebody to look up
Compare Lane, Merriman and Miss Prism as employees and as comic characters. What do they bring to the play that would otherwise be missing? Lane, Merriam and Miss Prism are the minor characters of Importance of Being Earnest. Although at first they don't appear to bring a lot to the play, in the end they have a big impact on how it is viewed as a comedy. They bring in a lot of content which fits into to comedy criteria as well as enable the plot to develop fully.
It drives the play forward, the audience being given incomplete information and left to keep guessing in anticipation. Knowledge is also a source of comedy it is acquired and interpreted in different ways by different people which causes a satirical effect. The acquisition knowledge is not only key theme in the plot, but also plays a role in the audience and how the play is viewed. Stoppard invites the audience to make presumptions which he then proves false, to alert the audience to the fact that knowledge is hard to acquire and can easily be falsely interpreted. An example of this is the presumption at the end of scene 4 when a gunshot is heard.
Stephen King In 1947 on the Twenty First of September, Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King gave birth to one of the greatest mystery fiction writers in our time. Stephen King was born in Maine General Hospital in Portland Maine(Wukovits 11). King had a normal upbringing despite the absents of a father. At the age of two King’s father, Donald Edward King, had disappeared while serving as a merchant marine in World War II (11). King started his education in a small school where he quickly took an interest in reading and writing.
It is also effective in describing its protagonist so that the reader can envision them before getting deep into the play. Conflict is displayed between Beatrice and Benedick. They call each other nicknames and also insult one another. As the scene progresses, Claudio displays how much he admires Hero. He wishes she could eventually become his wife because she is beautiful and compassionate.
As the play “King Lear” is a well-known play to the reader, adjustments to its normality gives the reader a joyful experience. The “get ready man”, whose name himself is already funny, interrupts the play and presents himself as a lunatic. His hyperbole of “the world is coming to an end” is of course absurd and incredulous to the reader, but it arouses the reader’s unexpectedness, which is relieved through the form of humor. Furthermore, his ridiculous shouting fits well in the dialogue and special effects of the performance, which adds dramatic effects to the story. All of this adds to the humor of the play.
The genre of this short story would be comedy, Thurber’s writing style is quiet creative and imaginative, with themes of adventure and escapism and also I believe imagery. This is partly what got me interested in the story. I think it was creative and extreme when Walter began daydreaming. The story was fluent and I never got bored reading it. I found myself looking forward to more, I was sad it was only a short story.
