As readers become engaged in the story, he or she may begin to ponder their own internal conflict, or the internal conflict of someone close to them, and gain insight, understanding or wisdom. Internal conflict is a universal feeling whether it has a strong presence in one’s life or a weak one. The inner workings of one’s mind and the journey of overcoming or not overcoming self conflict in the effort to know oneself will surely reveal a fascinating tale. We become witness to this in the following two literary works, “The Swimmer” by John Cheever and “Chrysanthemums” by John Steinbeck. Neddy Merrill and Elisa Allen struggle with themselves which result in completely different outcomes.
It is a clear portrayal of Borges’ manipulation of fantasy to create alternate realisms. Borges’ varied literary methods in a single story help communicate his two life theories. Labyrinths and identity are consistent topics that transpire in Borges’ short stories. “In Death and the Compass”, as well as several other short stories, Borges depicts characters that use reason to create and solve labyrinths. This symbolizes that people create their own paths in life.
The menagerie also symbolizes the ... ... middle of paper ... .... Williams uses symbols and figurative language to allow the reader and the audience to understand the deeper meaning and purpose of his writing. Each symbol proved very significant in explaining the underlying emotions throughout the drama. Every character had something that represented how they felt or what they were going through. Amanda symbolized with the past and her objects of the past, such as her yellow dress. Tom symbolized with the movies and the fire escape which represented an escape from his present life.
Those aspects that will be covered include the exterior and interior structure of the narrative, how it sets our views and expectations of the aspects of love and relationships, how that potentially influences our personal thoughts, goals, and actions, how the narrative changes focus, perception, and sympathy on each character, and how the author used allusion to help the reader create visualization. In "How," the title itself has the reader to automatically look into the story line for information and insight instead of entertainment. This alone, gives the author the upperhand and ability to feed her ideas into our own. Like other "how to" texts, off hand, the writer is looked to with much creditability which in turn causes us to absorb and believe more of its context. Furthermore, "How" is written in a step by step pattern where each thought, action, and time frame is easy to follow and understand.
Some examples of author 's leaving pieces of their natures within the their literary works include, The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli, We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, and Persepolis by Marjan Satrapi.

Krent’s theme - that if handicapped persons were viewed fairly their disability would be not be apparent- is one that the reader is aware of and wants to believe in. Yet, Krent’s own pessimistic tones overshadow the greater good. The reader is left with the unpalatable feeling that this essay may be nothing more than a very unconfident and dissatisfied man, attempting to pin his disappointments and failures on society, so that he may feel better about himself.
Metafiction is a narrative technique in which the work always includes an awareness within the fiction, that it is a work of fiction. Metafiction generally has the narrator establish themselves as a character in the novel. Breakfast of Champions and Life of Pi both have characters who have a hard time differentiating their perception of their situation and the actual events taking place. Metafiction generally uses a technique where the storyteller is allowed to do certain things while embodying the role of the narrator, for example, commenting on the story while it is going on and changing it to suit the intended audience. Pi’s first-person account of the days spent on the open sea is replaced, by Martel, with a fictional story in place for the more realistic story to suit the main audience.
His style of writing was slightly dull and stodgy and although he did have insightful concepts, I had trouble getting through the book, because he seems to make all social workers appear that they are all the same and have alternative motives. I agree how Jerome C. Wakefield (1998) describes that Margolin book is both a good and bad piece of literature and is intellectual failure (p. 546). Another weakness I found is that he concludes that social workers have only one intention and claims that motives of kindness and caring are not honest feelings towards others. In my opinion, I feel that Margolin is focusing
A Comparison of Moby Dick, Ahab's Wife and Diary A story is composed of many parts, some necessary and some to add meaning. What are necessary are characters, a setting, a conflict, and a resolution. To add meaning an author may include complicated histories to their characters' lives, underlying themes, value within the setting, and surprising twists within the conflicts and resolutions. Because this outline is generally used throughout fictional stories, many, even if written in completely different genres and time periods, are alike and can be compared. This is because through technological and social changes, themes such as man vs. man, man vs. himself, man vs. nature, and man vs. society remain constant.
In the end, the readers of both the texts can see that there are similarities between the texts, yet the differences are also visible. In the texts, the authors create a lack of passion and love for their characters of Dysart and Meursault through characterization and overall tone of the text, which created isolated characters. This aids the readers of to better understand why the authors placed certain techniques throughout the texts and why they were important. Works Cited Camus, Albert. The Stranger.
