And so, the most important step to understanding Great Expectations has to be getting to know Pip. Although Pip tells the story of his life looking back, when he has already gone a long way in becoming who he is today (Pip, the narrator), we have to keep in mind that he is also the main character in this story (Pip the character).

He constantly puts his hidden messages towards the beginning to reflect the end of the chapter. The conversation between Amir and Hassan has Amir’s describing that moment to indicate the nature of his relationship with Hassan.
Symbols are what make a novel interesting, without symbols there would nothing to discuss about a novel, nothing to debate. Symbols change it from ‘what happened?’ to ‘what does it mean?’ “Golding’s Lord of the Flies combines the best features of realistic and allegorical fiction; the novel allows for the simultaneous operation of the factual and the fabular” (Dickson 12). Symbols give the reader an image that they can apply to an idea. Symbols help the reader understand more complex themes. Symbols help the reader relate to what happens in any certain novel.
One of the most captivating part in the poem is “his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing” indicating that while going through so much struggle the African American people still had hope for a better future.

It also shows the importance of this action. The readers are aware of the problem from the start and therefore Coleridge is ensuring that anything that happens in any other parts of the poem will be as a result of the mariner shooting the albatross. Part one has a fairly rigid structure which very rarely breaks from four lined stanzas. This part is written in ballad which have often been criticised for their rigid structure. However, the structure is put to good use by Coleridge in this part of the story as this is the very first part of a seven part poem.
In Charles Frazier’s novel ‘Cold Mountain, the opening pages are very important to the rest of the novel as it establishes the basis of the story in terms of the plot and the setting, the main character and any other characters that affect them and themselves which will be continued and developed throughout the novel. During this essay I will discuss how the first opening pages are significant. The first few pages establish the setting of the main characters storyline.

The articles that I will be using for examples are, “Writing for an Audience” by Linda Flower, “Saying is Believing” by Patricia T. O’Conner, and “Writing to Change the World” by Mary Pipher. A good writer makes sure that the audience comprehends and learns something from the writing. In “Writing for an Audience”, Linda Flower states there are three areas a writer needs to consider when addressing their readers, “the reader’s knowledge about the topic, his or her attitude towards it and his or her personal or professional needs” (98). The elements author and audience are the most important because that’s why the author is writing, for the audience. Every author should be writing with a sense of purpose.
The literacy also use image which is a distinct representation of something that can be experienced and understood through the senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste), or the representation of an idea. Writers use precise language in developing images, or imagery, in literature. This also keeps the reader going and into the story, it also makes you anxious while wondering what will happen next in the story. Lastly the literacy uses Imagination which is the human power that shapes artistic expression; it enables a writer's work to become an expression of meaning in our world, and allows readers to engage in identifying with what the writer's work has to say about things that matter. This is also important to readers because it also draws the attention that makes them want to read more of the story or whatever they are reading.
