However, I quickly learned that I was wrong. All this book attempts to do is teach the young writer about fiction and the many ways it can be approached. Furthermore, Gardner encourages the reader to chart his or her own course when it comes to writing fiction and not feel bound by a set of rules, an idea that I agree with wholeheartedly. Perhaps the biggest surprise for me about this book is that I actually found it enjoyable and interesting to read. Not only did reading this book make me a better writer, it also refreshed my interest in writing fiction, an interest that I may pursue far beyond high school.

This is one of the advantages of writing in the first person narrative. However a disadvantage of this style of writing is that us the readers our only able to read one point of view, but to me this is also another advantage because this novel suits the style of a first person narrative, Charlotte Brontë has done this deliberately, so the reader can focus more on Jane Eyre and her life.

Art of Characterization Aristotle laid utmost stress on the plot in a story, later on, this emphasis shifted to character. Character is less important in symbolic, satirical, stream of consciousness, technique novel or highly experimental novels. A great novel enables us to identify ourselves with hero or heroine and enjoy characters. The most enjoyable fictional characters seem to be very realistic.

Whichever title Jane austen would have chosen would have easily given the reader immense amounts of insight into the work before even taking it off the shelf.

Even though Elizabeth is correct about Lady Catherine de Bourgh and how self-righteous and condescending she is, furthermore Mr. Collins and how ridiculously self-centered he is, her first impressions of Mr. Wickham and Mr. Darcy prove to be inaccurate. To start with Mr. Wickham is seen to be a gentle...
The term lovesickness can be described as the anguish one feels in the absence of a loved one. Both Nemours and Madame de Cleves fake sickness to remain virtuous, but in doing so, they sacrifice a chance of true happiness with one another.

The characters often get lost in remembering their past memories as we see as subtle flashbacks and then which they (and the reader included) are then violently jerked back to reality In the
They thought that Jane’s popularity was overrated because of her limited thought to her small world and it’s small concerns. In direct contrast, it was this exact idea that made her popular. It related her books to everyday life and appealed to the modern reader (Mullan, 2015, How Jane Austen’s Emma Changed the Face of Fiction). The way Jane wrote provided a gentle, easy-to-follow rhythm, using literary devices to move towards subjects floating through irony and criticism. This allows the reader to view the subject through humor and enjoyment but also clearly understanding the point Jane is trying to make (Collins, 2009, What Would Jane Do?).
