  • Diction In The Story

    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 author, Sarah Orne Jewett, paints a vivid and descriptive image of the young heroine and her surroundings in the story. I will try to primarily focus on the symbolism and representation in the story. I will also mention the subtle references the artist made to t...
  • Story The Death Of An Author
    820 words
    Critique of 'Death of the Author' The title to the story 'The Death of an Author,' by Roland Barthes, suggests this story may be a fictional novel about the story of an author's death. Perhaps one might pick it up, and skim the foreword in hopes that beneath the cover of this book there would be a mystery, a story of detectives, eye-witnesses, clues, and a puzzle for the reader to solve. Before I read this story, the title 'The Death of an Author' brought to my imagination the biography of a wri...

  • Actual Events In The Story
    562 words
    In Tim O'Brien's 'The Things They Carried'; detailed description and realism were used to capture the audience and draw them into the actual events in the story, allowing them to feel the burden of emotional and physical weight on the characters, who were fighting to preserve their sanity and lives. The vivid detail and realistic narration were only tools used by the author to prepare a story that goes beyond the war in Vietnam, focusing on the other things that soldiers carried - inner thoughts...

  • One Way The Author
    563 words
    Style Analysis The author in this story, Kevin McConnell, states that his main consideration in writing 'The Road Beneath My Feet'; was to develop a style that would remain consistent throughout the entire story.

Many of the authors's tate ments were very similar if not exact. For example, the author says a few times that 'the d...

  • Peyton's Escape Home
    1,171 words
    Out of all the stories I have read in class so far, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce, has touched me most. When I first began reading the story I felt as though I was not interested, because my assumptions of what the story was going to be about were completely different than the stories actual content. As I set aside my judgment and let myself try to enjoy the story, I found myself anxiously reading to the bitter end. This story was not only interesting and unique, but also h...
  • Direct Manifestations The Author's Intentions
    1,137 words
    To accurately discern what does and does not happen in fictional stories, one must develop a kind of "story competence", which Livingston describes in "What's the Story" Story competence relies on making judgements based on reasoning about characters' motives and authors' intentions. Only the latter is of concern here, which Livingston refers to as the "intentional heuristic:" a moderate form of intentionalism. The intentional heuristic is an aid used to determine which beliefs an author intende...

  • Readers Through The Authors Words
    598 words
    There are two separate types of preconceptions which can bring into a class of this nature. The first deals with the literature itself. In my case, preconceptions pertaining to African American literature are non-existent. The absence of knowledge pertaining to a specific subject prevents one from constructing any meaningful preconceptions. The second type of preconception deals with the African American culture. I, like any other human being, have formed certain prejudices and stereotypes towar...
  • Suspension Of Disbelief An Author
    430 words
    Suspension of Disbelief An author can encourage us to suspend our disbelief or purposely discourage us to do so. A good example would be the way an author describes something to us. For example, if an author vividly describes an event, a setting, or a character this would be effective in suspending the reader's disbelief. I thought Edgar Allan Poe did a very good job in the Tel-Tale Heart, of suspending disbelief. The one particular event that exemplified this was at the end of the story where t...
  • End Of The Story After Charlie

She is placed in a room, apparently one that was previously inhabited by a mental patient, and told to rest. Over the course of a few weeks the woman beg...
