    Many times in stories, authors will use the setting to set the stage for the story. The setting is like the foundation of the story, and without one the story seems merely lost. Quite often the setting will build up the story and affect the characters, and the characters behaviors.

In The Shawl Rosa, her inf...

  • The Shawl Great Deal

    The Shawl The plot of this story does not adhere to the conventional plot line. I feel that the Shawl's plot came to early. Magda dies to early in the novel. I would have wanted her to be living just a little while longer so that we can build some sort of relationship with her. In my opinion, all we know of this fifteen-month-old baby is what Rosa tells of her daughter. Magda never lives long enough to see life through the eye of the reader. This takes away from a conventional plot line. Even t...

    When you read David Copperfield, it doesn't take long to realize the difference between the upper and lower classes. Dickens had a way of making one-dimensional characters, and he was also good at doing this with the social status of the characters. The best examples of this, I think, would be Daniel Peggotty for the lower class, and Rosa Dartle for the upper class. Daniel Peggotty was portrayed as a man that lived for everyone but himself. He was always willing to go out on a limb. He was kind ...
