Choosing this style of writing raises many challenges to the author. The author must include heavy details, interesting events, or something which forces the reader to continue reading with intent interest. That is exactly what Dickens did when he chose to include and rely so heavily upon coincidences in his novel. Dickens believed in interrelation and connections between people. In A Tale of Two Cities, similar looks and relations between characters give examples of coincidences which strengthen the overall plot.
Robert Browning and the Power of the Dramatic Monologue Form The dramatic monologue form, widely used by Victorian poets, allows the writer to engage more directly with his reader by placing him in the role of listener. Robert Browning utilised the form to a famously profound effect, creating a startling aspect to his poetry. In poems such as “Porphyria’s Lover,” and “My Last Duchess,” for example, Browning induces a feeling of intimacy by presenting the reader as the ‘confidant’ to the narrator’s crimes; in “Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister,” the reader is more a witness to the narrator’s increasing instability. Thus, Browning is able to use the dramatic monologue form both to expose the narrator’s frailties, and as a channel for them to relinquish their sins. Furthermore, the form allows for a direct insight into the character’s thinking, thus creating an atmosphere of urgency and drama whilst the narrator’s contemplate their situations and actions.
A loop hole, however, that is hard to miss during reading the short story is the high amount of co-incidences that happen in the story. The central plot that the narrator meets three strange people in a city, and all of them turn out to be related seems fictional and ‘made-up’ and hence takes away the reality from the story. Apart from that, O. Henry once again lives up to reader’s expectations and proves his title of being ‘a pioneer of middle-class writings.’

Great Expectations is a great example to show Charles Dickens’ writing style and his use of words to depict an image in the reader’s mind. The book is interesting because the tone and the attitude change depending on the structure of the chapter and this create a specific detail and description for every character and his/her actions. Dickens also enhances his plot by using extensive amount of imagery and metaphors to complete his masterpiece. Dickens has an incredible ability to use words to describe and create a vivid image using them.

Only a good story can have you at the tip of your seat wondering what is going to happen next. Literature is a great way to feel empathy and both of these stories play it very well. Arp and Johnson are correct, “Literary fiction plunges us, through the author’s imaginative vision and artistic ability, more deeply into the real world, enabling us to understand life’s difficulties and to empathize with others.” To have that ability to understand and share the feelings of another through words on a paper is powerful. You see the truth through many authors’ eyes and make the scenario in your mind only wanting to understand every aspect of what’s going on and what’s going to happen and after you come out in the oddest way with this new visionary on things after just reading something so small.
A skeptic, like myself can see this novel as an unbelievable, idealistic and overrated. An unbiased reader however can see this novel as inspiring, a tale of love, hate and the human spirit. Love and Hate play a constant role, as does the underlying historical event of the French revolution. These factors make up the bare bones of the novel so that one must look closely to see Dickens's Biases, attempts at pe... ... middle of paper ... ...left for a few weeks, even though he is seen to and looked after by two of his closest friends. Overall Dickens's a tale of two cities is an enduring novel that I have to admit has been read countless times and become incredibly popular since its first publication.
There are many rhetorical devices that Dickens uses in the novel. In this novel, he uses metaphors, symbolism, similes, personification, hyperboles, repetition, and many other devices to enhance the complexities of the novel. Using these makes the novel more complicated to read and the devices will make you think about what you read. Rhetorical devices help Dickens get the point across through the story. Literary devices are used in text because using these types of devices will make the author’s writing more unique and enjoyable to read.
The novel derives its form from the classical literary tradition. Mistry’s narration reminds the readers of the great tradition where the novelist not only changes the possibilities of art for practitioners and readers but becomes significant in terms of that human awareness they promote -- the awareness of the possibilities of life. We find the elements of comedy, tragedy and satire in the novel. We also find Mistry sharing his thoughts on beliefs, superstitions, the super natural, rites, nationalistic ideas, humanism, discrimination, secular views and so on an... ... middle of paper ... ...ilures as stepping stones to success.

The realist novel, in trying to show us the world as it is, often reaffirms, in the last instance, the way things are. In Great Expectations, and Frankenstein, we are exposed to the harsh certainties of realism, albeit whilst exploring very different story lines. Each respective author has employed various techniques to make their stories more believable. Both novels are narrated in an autobiographical way which makes the build up of the central characters more personal. Both authors have produced absorbing stories that show life in the real world of class and relationships.
