 I would like you to look at the two stories for homework( Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron” and Ursulla K. LeGuin’s “Those Who Walk Away From Omelas”) from whatever perspective you would like,

but again, you will need to refer two AT LEAST two elements or devices from the lists.

 

Fictional Devices

Symbolism: the art of investing meaning in a thing which, in the context of the story, comes to represent some other thing (e.g. colors, animals, geography/place, numbers, metaphors, inanimate objects)

 

Irony: the use of words being used in direct opposition to the literal meaning (Think of Chris Farley’s use of finger quotes) or a stark contrast between what is expected to occur and what actually transpires

 

Satire: the use of sarcasm, irony, or parody to poke fun at and critique vice or folly (e.g. The Daily ShowSaturday Night Live, political cartoons)

 

Theme: the subject or unifying idea, which contains the thesis of the story (It’s what the story is about!)

 

Subtext: what lies under the superficial theme/context of the story; it’s implied rather than explicitly stated (It’s what the story is REALLY about!)

 

Elements of Fiction

Plot: is the author’s arrangement of incidents in a story

 

In media res: beginning in the middle of things

 

Flashback: a device that informs us about events that happened before the opening scene of a work

 

Narrator: the person (voice) who relates the story

 

Character: an imagined person in the story

 

Protagonist/Hero: the central character who engages our interest and empathy

 

Antagonist: the force that opposes the protagonist

 

Exposition: the background information the reader needs to make sense of the situation in which the characters are placed

 

Setting/Context: the geographical place or the historical/social/political/economic environment

 

Rising Action: a complication that intensifies the situation

 

Conflict: the character’s central problem

 

Foreshadowing: a suggestion of what is yet to come

 

Suspense: when the reader is made anxious about what is going to happen next

 

Climax: the moment of greatest emotional tension

 

Resolution/Denouement: the conflict is resolved

 

 

The goal here is to not only analyze but start to use interpretive language in your responses.
