Ralph Ellison’s Prologue to the Invisible Man is an effective essay because audiences can easily relate to it through its use of informal tone, subjective point of view, and its appeals to pathos. With the use of informal tone Ellison is able to relate the story to the audience better. The prologue is written in the first person, everything in the essay is being told from the storyteller’s point of view. This makes the reader feel as though the character is personally talking to them and telling of the events. Ellison also personally addresses the reader as “you” this also enables the audience to relate to the story.
Most of this is probably caused by his constant day dreaming throughout this trip into town and not concentrating too hard on what he's doing. Once Walter Mitty had dropped off his wife for her hair appointment, he began to do his shopping. Walter picks up his overshoes and then "Walter Mitty began to wonder what the other thing was his wife had told him to get. She had told him, twice before they left. "(90) Also, a little later on, Walter Mitty "was always getting something wrong"(90) This last quote shows that Walter Mitty must forget things quite often.

Comparison: "The Jade Peony", "Horses of the Night", Masque of the Red Death" I noticed that i enjoyed most of the storys not only for the obvious reasons such as good charactors, mood, and imagery but also because of writing style and fluency. I noticed some storys I enjoyed reading even thought nothing in it really interested me too much, while other storys that were about topics I usally enjoy reading about I had to put down because I would end up going over every sentence two or three times each. So on that note I belive the most important part of writing is making it fluent and easy to read. The three storys I will compare and contrast are: "The Jade Peony", "Horses of the Night", and "The Masque of the Red Death." I intend to fine wether or not the author of these storys was sucessful in making it readable in the sence of comprehanceability and fluency.
When Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World, he created an intriguing and effective novel, designed to captivate the audience and provide them with a story that is easy to digest, even though it is complex. He accomplishes this through a combination of careful plot structure and the use of subplots. His subplot provides a foil, useful for contrasting the protagonist of the story, and also gives the reader a wider view of the setting of the story. Huxley takes an unconventional but powerful approach to his plot structure; organizing an episodic plot structure into a plot that can also be considered progressive. This increases his ability to develop his characters while maintaining a series of events that draws the reader in and keeps the story transitioning nicely, and creates a story that is sure to please all audiences.
This is exactly how detective fiction authors draw people into these stories and books. By weaving an intricate and interesting plot full of fascinating characters, and all types of details about the crime, readers get drawn into the plot and cannot stop reading until they find out the solution to the mystery. Simply put, readers are drawn to detective fiction because it is so easy to become completely engrossed in the stories. The trick of the author is how to create such an environment to keep readers coming back again and again to the genre. The easiest way to begin to draw any reader into a story is through the characters.
As the writers follow the thought processes of each character, the reader can identify a sharp contrast in the development of all three. Nora’s fixation on Torvald’s possible revelation of what she’s done causes her to find herself, and realize that he doesn’t love her the way she does him. This allows Nora to make a positive change in her life. This is as opposed to Willy’s thought process leading to misguided suicide, and John’... ... middle of paper ... ...re it is her own self she works to free.

The weekly trips into town are somewhat of a disaster each time. once, he had tried to take the chains of of his tires and they got them "wound around the axle" and had to have a man come from a garage to unwind them. Mrs. Mitty leaves Walter on his own so that he can run errands, while she goes to the beauty parlor to get her hair done. Because of his daydreaming, he ends up loosing himself in a court battle in his head. How can anyone expect to remember to buy puppy biscuits with something like that happening?
I also thought that the way the story was written as if the characters were talking to you worked really well because you felt the characters were telling you, not just writing it down. Another important aspect of creating realism from the language was the way the characters began to use 'junkie slang', drug terminology, unheard of at the beginning of the novel but common place by the end. This really helped to show how the lives of the main characters had really changed as the book progressed. Cultural references are also important because they help people to relate to the story and put the
Although much of this novel was just Holden’s opinions and thoughts, I found this novel to be very interesting and thought provoking. Written in 1st person point of view, the main character and protagonist, Holden Caulfield, narrates this story, describing what he sees and feels. He provides his own commentary on people he encounters and events that occur.He is a protagonist liked not for what he does or fails to do but for what he thinks. His tone varies from cynical, judgmental, compassionate and sad. holden shows compassion when he is with Sunny, the prostitute.
