convey. This technique helps the reader sympathize with the author's struggle, as most people can reflect on their childhood in similar ways to how Fein is portraying it in this text. A child growing up in a completely different situation from the usual may also feel embarrassed about the way they live, further illustrating how powerful this literary device can be. This device, in the writer's case, helps in particular with explaining to the reader why she felt cheated in life. The flashbacks are important to the text, as, without them, the reader has trouble understanding where Fein's resentment of her childhood has come from.
Within the first paragraph, Fein titles her childhood memories

Kesey has also explored the theme of emasculation through the literary technique of dialogue. Throughout the novel, Nurse Ratched strengthens her authority by using the patient’s weakness to control them, this is prevalent in the character, Billy Bibbit. Suffering from psychological problems, Billy Bibbit is a shy, timid patient who fears his mother and Nurse Ratched.

Irony is the use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning. Eudora Welty successfully uses this literary technique to elucidate the theme of the story, "A Visit of Charity".The title "A Visit of Charity" is rather ironic. Charity means to show kindness and sympathy towards others; however, no one in this story does such a thing. There are no charity from Marian's, the nurse's, the two old ladies, and the whole society's point of view. How can there be charity when the old ladies are isolated from the society.In the story, Marian, "a young Campfire girl", sets out a visit to the Old Lady House.

In composing “Heart of Darkness”, Conrad’s exploration of the very worst aspects of humanity has resulted in the very best of literary achievements.
Published on the verge of the 20th century, a time where Africa astringently suffered from the effects of European Imperialism, Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ is not merely a well composed fictional piece, but a literary embodiment of the external and internal failings of humanity, and a contrivance regarding the very lowest of human morality. Through exploring the very core of mankind's ethicality, in such a perilous point in time, Conrad engendered a literary masterpiece, of high merit, recognised as equally relevant in our time, as it

technique is perhaps used to give the poem a disorganised feel, to represent the hectic way of life that has begun to be popular. Levy’s ballad also contains an incomplete idiom: “along the beaten path”. This partial idiom refers to the fact that modern people who have lost their faith are no longer “content” to follow the monogamous and traditional ways of their elders, who followed a more righteous “beaten” path, meaning it had been the way the majority chose to take. The inclusion of this literary device is perhaps a sarcastic swipe at those the poet believes have lost their way, even though the “path” or way had been taken many times before and should indicate the right way to go.

culture consists significantly of the idea of guilt and regret over our past. This is a shade of meaning which could be overlooked without an understanding of literary devices and techniques. This is represented in the text through the effect the circular narrative structure creates. This structural technique connotes that little progress, morally or spiritually, has been made by the end of the novel. This brings to light the fact that the terrible events of the book; the genocide of Aboriginal Australians, are not forgotten. Australia's history of mistreatment of its Indigenous people is represented in the text through William Thornhill's participation in the massacre of the Darug people by our

Analysis of Literary Technique in John Donne's "The Sun Rising"John Donne, author of many works of literature, including "The Sun Rising", is a master manipulator of literary techniques, which he uses to convey a powerful and profound message to the reader. Published in 1633 in Donne's book entitled Poems, "The Sun Rising" is a poem depicting two lovers disturbed from their bed by the rising sun. Donne's poem, "The Sun Rising," is comparable to woven fabric, each literary element tightly woven on the loom of Donne's poetic mind. Donne's expert manipulation of each literary technique, making each literary element work to its fullest potential in conveying his underlying theme, is what

Literary journalism is defined as a kind of nonfiction that makes use of the facts (real people and actual events that occurred) and integrates with the narrative methodologies as well as a varied stylistic technique anciently employed by the fictional narratives. Through the stories, literary journalists give vital information and their interpretation of the people and the culture they are writing about. Literary journalism has undergone several changes over the centuries. The literary texts of different centuries include the work of Samuel Johnson “The Rambler” published on 1750, William Thackeray’s “Going to see a man hanged” published in

He says " they are meant for us; they can be meant for no other" this is putting logic into play refuting what the parliament had been saying about the reason behind the troop shipments. Later on in Henrys speech he asks questions to the audience. This is an extremely effective rhetorical technique because it is making the audience ask themselves if they believe his logic. By supporting his intensely emotional speech with an appeal to the audiences sense of logic Henry makes his arguments even more persuasive.As far as which appeal is the most effective to the average listener to any persuasive work, most will agree that the

progression. This left a void in literature during this time and allowed room for new poets to emerge. This break from traditional poetic values introduced new ways of seeing the world especially as it was the years leading up to World War One. Eliot was instrumental in the Modernist Movement and had little care for what the Victorians and Romantics were writing about as he saw it as outdated and mainstream. Pericles (2007) says that ‘Modernist writers’ view of the modern world has often of its own being already and exhaustingly overwritten.’ Modernists had a hatred for the literary techniques of the last century due to this. However, they were still interested in French Symbolism such as

It was a powerful validation not just of people, but of Americanism as well, and created a sense of national identity (not like the Nazis though. The Nazi propaganda films weren't quite as rootsy).Additionally, to appeal to these groups which literature and visual arts now spoke for, the media quickly adopted the vernacular, shedding the way English is "supposed" to be spoken, and accurately reflecting the way it was spoken in homes across the nation. This step in technique is just as important as those strides made in

It is a rhetorical device, literary technique, or event in which what appears, on the surface, to be the case, differs radically from what is actually the case.

tandem. To explore this question references to Metamorphosis made are based on the version translated by Joachim Neugroschel.
Although Kafka died before the widespread use of the concept of postmodernism, and although he is often described as a modernist writer, this essay attempts to argue that his writing presents elements of both and that this is evident in The Metamorphosis. The concept of modernism is said to revolve around a deliberate and radical break from traditional Western art and literature (Abrams, 167). What categorises modernism as a literary genre is its subversion of literary conventions often by use of stream of consciousness technique (Abrams, 167). Postmodernism serves as a

These ideals reiterated a broader philosophical emphasis on the limits of human knowledge and certain scepticism about metaphysical questions. This literature tended to be very social in focus, attending to human flaws and attempting to correct them through satire, rather than celebrating or revealing a striving to exceed previous standards or ideals. This attitude can be summed up in the idea of decorum, of language and character keeping to within long-held standards. Literary historians sometimes break up this era into three periods, the Age of Dryden

Through the use of intertextuality, Penn implies nature’s ability to fulfil our inner desires.

Throughout the film, quotes are embedded within Christopher’s dialogue demonstrating his shared opinion of the beauty of nature and romanticism of complete freedom, leading the audience to understand why the ‘wild’ was his ideal destination away from society.

In the third and final instalment of the Oresteia, The Eumenides, Aeschylus makes use of a number of literary techniques in order to heighten the dramatic effect in the play.The most prominent of these techniques is the playwright's strong characterisation throughout the play. This is most evident in the stark contrast he creates between Athena and Apollo in both their roles and their attitude towards the Furies. In the god's first sighting of the Furies, Aeschylus emphasises Apollo's disgust and horror at their appearance, which he refers to as 'obscenities' and describing them as 'grey, ancient children never touched by god, man or beast'.

The most notable application of figurative language employed by Kaysen is seen in her introduction, the exploration of the mind and brain.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, the first novel by Irish Writer James Joyce, depicts the mental and physical growth of Stephen Daedalus, an Irish Catholic. James Joyce applied innovative rhetorical devices and techniques, like the flow of consciousness, to the novel, for which he was celebrated and remembered as one of the leaders of literary modernism. Meanwhile, his ingenious use of traditional devices also makes remarkable contributions to the development of the main ideas of this novel.

(Morris 1995)Here, Austen uses the telling technique of describing Elizabeth's "utter amazement" and "burning with curiosity" (Austen p. 243) to convey to the reader how Elizabeth felt when she found out from Lydia about Darcy's presence at the wedding. This narrative device is economical and thus moves the story along at a faster pace without discouraging the reader to engage with the character. Austen also employs free indirect speech for this scenario when the narrator narrated "Mr. Darcy had been at her sister's wedding." where the reader can almost hear Elizabeth speaking as the intonation is clearly Elizabeth's.

Moreover, Mr. Lockwood's narration reflects his educated background and civilized sophistication.

He simply hammered the ice pick through eye socket and swished it around, essentially whisking all the fibers together (Hall).

The patient reclines on a comfortable couch in the analyst's office with the analyst seated behind the patient. The recumbent position, as well as not being able to see the analyst, minimizes distraction and allows concentration on inner experiences, thoughts, wishes, fantasies, and feelings. The patient is instructed to say absolutely everything that comes to mind without censoring anything, a technique that is called free association. This brings about a state of regression in which long-forgotten events and painful encounters are remembered, often with great clarity and intense emotions. At the same

Her character, madness, and death are exploited with the intention of creating a lyrical effect; she is not a speaking subject but an object “to-be-looked at” (Mulvey 272). In short, in spite of some innovations in the approach to Ophelia up to the ’60s, both on the stage and in cinema, the acting style and mise en scène still revealed in Ophelia only the lyricism of her beauty, madness, and death.
After the 1960s, however, first literary critics and then film directors attempted to transform her image and to problematize her significance in the play, most likely as a result of the growing influence of

Heathcliff looms larger than life, subject to violent extremes of emotion, amenable to neither education nor nurturing. Like Frankenstein's monster, he craves love and considers revenge the only fit justice when he is rejected by others. Catherine, self-involved and prone to emotional storms, has just enough sense of self-preservation to recognize Heathcliff's faults

Unfortunately, of these dialogues only the works of Plato and Xenophon survive. There are, however, a few other sources that we can draw information from.Of all the surviving works those of Plato are both best known and most numerous.

They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and
