  • Irony, Symbolism, And Foreshadowing As Literary Elements - 879 words
    Among Kate Chopins most impressive works is the short story entitled The Story of an Hour. This work best displays the importance of literary elements on the overall unified affect. Through the use of irony, symbolism, foreshadowing and paradox, the reader can grasp a better understanding of the main focus of the story. These literary elements are essential in the artistic style of the story. The story opens with the foreshadowing of the main character, Mrs. Mallards, death. The author initially informs the reader of the womans heart condition to allow for further developments later in the story. Through the paradox, the joy that kills, Chopin alludes that in the end it will be Mrs. Mallards ...

  • Important Literary Elements Of The Scarlet Letter - 559 words
    Nathaniel Hawthornes revolutionary novel, The Scarlet Letter, was written in the time where there were no exceptions; either one was holy and abided the law, or one was a sinner, condemned by all. In that time, life was centered around an impermeable Puritan society, in which secrets and innermost thoughts were to be kept inside the self. Hester Prynne, the protagonist of the story, tries to cope with the guilt that the town puts her through because of her sin. The other main characters of the story have to deal with their sins as well. Throughout the duration of the novel, the use of literary elements, such as motivation and conflict, form the foundation of the characters, as well as, the b ...

  • Literary Elements Of Golding's Lord Of The Flies - 430 words
    Most good writers like to include some scene or sentence that just catches peoples eye. And they wonder, why did they have to put that in? or was it even necessary to have that happen. The book Lord of the Flies by William Golding has many scenes that are meant to have the reader wondering but one scene that caught my eye was the fallowing: In Chapter 8 Gift for the Darkness after the hunters hunted down a pig and had killed it. Jack the leader of the hunting group orders for a stick to be sharpened at two ends and then sticks the head of the pig on the stick and jams it in the ground. Then he says This head is for the beast. Its a gift.(137). This scene always has me wondering why did they ...

  • Literary Elements Of Chaucer's "the Wife Of Baths Tale" - 716 words
    Fairy tales have been around for centuries. There are many elements of a fairy-tale: characters, setting, plot, problem, events, solution, and tone through illustrations. There are also purposes of fairy tales: pass time and messages and subtle rebellion. Chaucers view of the Wife of Baths Tale centers on fairy tale and its structure, and ending with the fact that woman should have devoted husbands. A highlight of a fairy tale is the events that lead to the happy ending. The queen sending the knight on an educational quest, his education, in all actuality, comes through woman and the queens challenge puts him in situation where what is traditionally thought of as a shortcoming-a womans inabi ...

  • The Importance Of Literary Elements In Barn Burning - 1,423 words
    Understanding literary elements such as patterns, reader/writer relationships, and character choice are critical in appreciating William Faulkner's Barn Burning. Some literary elements are small and almost inconsequential while others are large and all-encompassing: the mother's broken clock, a small and seemingly insignificant object, is used so carefully, extracting the maximum effect; the subtle, but more frequent use of dialectal words which contain darker, secondary meanings; the way blood is used throughout the story in many different ways, including several direct references in the familial sense; how Faulkner chooses to write about poor, common people (in fact to the extreme) and how ...

  • Bartleby - 751 words
    It is dangerous to isolate oneself; dangerous for an individual and for a nation."- Jawaharlal Nehru. The quotation says that isolating oneself can be dangerous, as in the case of Bartleby, a character in Herman Melville's novella Bartleby. Bartleby's isolation was dangerous; it led to his depression and his death. The motif of the story is the isolation of Bartleby from society. Three literary devices support the motif: symbolism, descriptive passages, and irony. The walls symbolize Bartleby's isolation from society; descriptive passages convey his loneliness; irony further expounds upon the motif. Symbolism supports the motif of Bartleby being isolated from society. The symbolism is in thi ...

  • Marvell Vs Herrick - 517 words
    "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time" by Rober Herrick and Andrew Marvell's "To His Coy Mistress" have many similarities and differences. The tone of the speakers, the audience each poem is directed to, and the theme make up some of the literary elements that help fit this description. The tone of "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time" and "To His Coy Mistress" are different. In Herrick's poem, his tone is relaxed. For instance when he writes, "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, /Old times is still a-flying," his word choice has a very relaxed and casual tone. His attitude reflects the relaxed tone in his poem. In Marvell's poem, his tone is serious. Marvell's purpose is to persuade his mistr ...

  • Mesomorphosis Revisited - 807 words
    Despite appearances which may seem to promote a sense of comedy, Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis actually contains an enormous quantity of symbolism, which serves to underscore several literal events which may have taken place in said story. Within the novella, many literary techniques are employed in order to contribute to the depth of the story line, with symbolism being the most prevalent, though not the sole method. These other literary tools are secondary in their nature, but they remain quite For example, a sense of Weltschmertz ("world pain") can be felt by the main character, Gregor Samsa, in part due to such imagery as "the overcast sky," the "rain drops," and "uneasy dreams." Ideas ...

  • Hamlets Depression - 347 words
    Throughout Hamlet, Shakespeare does not directly disclose his characters feelings. Instead, Shakespeare uses various literary devices to inform the reader of the characters desires, feelings and emotions. Shakespeare uses literary devices such as metaphor, diction, metonymy and imagery to reveal Hamlets state of mind in this passage. By using these literary devices, Hamlets depressed and weary state of mind is easy to see. Hamlet first discusses his depression with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. He describes the land of Denmark as a metaphorical prison in which he is confined. Hamlet believes that Denmark is too narrow for his mind to be free, and his ambitions are trapped within him, like a ...
