  • Diction In The Story
    552 words
    The Heroine in A White Heron A White Heron was a beautiful story of the battles within a little girl in her formative years in life. The story has a deeper meaning though, expressed in the involvement of much symbolic representation.

  • The Long Rain Symbolism
    611 words
    Parallelism in 'The Long Rain'; I think that the setting in the short story 'The Long Rain'; is a parallel to reality. This short story is set on the planet of Venus, where the rain never stops.

The story begins with a group of men, led by a lieutenant, who are trying to find their way to a sun dome. Sun domes are buildings build with a sourc...
  • Loveless Marriage In Chicago
    459 words

Especially when the story is in such a private line of thought, but then after my second time reading the story I decided that Roselily would not be a strong enough woman to speak about the social injustices that have happened to her. One key part of the story is her new life she will be facing after she is married in Chicago, while comparing it with her old life she is leaving in Mississippi. In Chicago s...

  • Humour In The Joe Wilson Stories
    600 words
    Lawson's funny stories are the best. Do you agree? Reading Henry Lawson short stories was such a delight. He truely made the bush come to life within the stories he wrote. He used humour in many of the stories but not in all of them.

These stories about Joe Wilson and his life and family really touched me and helped me to appreciate the comfort...
