In the short story “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator is very insane and mentally ill. He is a murderer, does not sleep much, is very paranoid, and is unable to distinguish what is real and unreal.
It is clear that Poe wants to create a character who is mad. First off, the narrator kills the old man. By doing so, he is considered a murderer. The death occurs “in an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him” (44). He is obviously not in his right mind to murder someone in such a manner. The narrator even claims to enjoy the event of murdering the old man

The early Americana bank which the narrator of Invisible Man discovers one morning in his room at Mary's house is a reflection of the narrator's state throughout much of the novel. The offensively exaggerated Negro figure provokes an instant hatred in the narrator due to the tolerance it suggests. However, the narrator becomes personally offended by the object because of the similarities it holds to himself. While smashing the pipes with the bank, he yells out to his neighbors who are banging on the pipes, "Get rid of your cottonpatch ways! Act civilized!" (320). Thus he associates the hatred he feels for the bank figure with his neighbors who are acting no less civilized

On the other side is Eleanor which probably sees it from Penny’s point of view because she also has been a girl like Penny who might have had a crush on big, wild youth once in her life. Maybe this has made her much more careful about what she would let Penny do and therefore sets more strict measures because she knows just how wrong it can go. And as the narrator in the story says “Eleanor, his wife, wanted to keep the girl close to her”, if the girl, penny gets a boyfriend like Andy, Eleanor would probably not see her

of children as creatures attuned to nature and untouched by the cares of adult life, is evident in “We Are Seven.”
The poet begins by juxtaposing the attributes and promise of a child’s life with the specter of death:
A simple Child,
That lightly draws its breath,
And feels its life in every limb,
What should it know of death? (Wordsworth 1-4)
Wordsworth presents the image of an innocent child, an eight-year-old girl that he, as the poem’s narrator, encounters on a walk through the countryside. By describing her as possessing “a rustic, woodland air” (9), he evokes a feeling of the unadulterated innocence of the natural world, unspoiled by the interference of civilized society. The

The Victorian society of the nineteenth-century was a period marked by sensationalism and superficiality but also by the emergence of a new kind of novel and short story that expressed ideas about subjects that were normally taboo or avoided in this society. A year before his death in 1896, Henry Cuyler Bunner wrote the short story “Our Aromatic Uncle” which presents an unreliable narrator and very strong allusions to same-sex love . This essay will analyze the homosexual subtext in Bunner’s short story. This text will explore how the phrase popularized by Oscar Wild “the love that dares not speak its name” express itself as well as on what and how same-sex love is displaced in the short

Section #1: The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, starts off by introducing how the book was written. The anonymous narrator stumbled upon some manuscripts labeled with a red “A”, all of which happened some 200 years before his time. He decided to write a fictional story about the facts he found in the manuscripts and thus, The Scarlet Letter was born.
The story begins in a Boston Puritan Settlement in the 17th century. Hester Prynne and her young daughter, Pearl, are being led from the town prison, bearing the infamous “scarlet letter”. A man in the crowd said she was being tried for adultery, after her husband left and was supposed to be “lost at sea”, and gave birth to a child

family has to call the vet later at night. This is a metaphor of Stolpestad not being able to escape from his own life. Stolpestad fails to end the life of the dog the same way as he fails to end his own dull routine.
Stolpestad´s drowsy approach to life is strengthen further by the use of a second-person narrator. Stolpestad is referred to as you, (…and you stand there and wait…) which makes the story seem more as a manual to his life than literary fiction. The use of the second-person narrator, mixed with the story of a pretty boring life, makes Stolpestad´s life seem even more dull and never changing. His day is written as stages in a manual on How to live like Stolpestad and some of the

All of these stories contain the very popular theme of loneliness and isolation,which are shown using various literary devices of each author’s choosing.

In current times, such places are common and mostly target the young people, who frequent them to for their binge drinking habits and other inappropriate lifestyles. Pierce’s poem is written from a narrator point of view. In this case, the narrator, a youthful female was a regular visitor of the bar mentioned above, and she indicates that she used to dance in the presence of several men who watched her with truculent eyes.

Our narrator in this story is a first person narrator. We do not know what our first person’s name is (I believe it is Charles). The relationship between the boys is strange after the fleeing of Morgan and Hass, leaving our lead character to himself, after the hanging of Simpsons.
So they can have fun with each other and all the time try to impress one another, but when there are problems they do not stand behind each other’s back and help each other. Instead they are left alone to deal with the problems themselves. And as the narrator writes, they cannot show weakness, as it would make them look weak. Which leads to group pressure as another theme.

The song also talks about a wall being built, and in the end it asks: “did it need to be so high?” This indicates some kind of isolation, and means the narrator has finally realized the disadvantages his narrow-minded upbringing has caused.

Its themes are the universal emotions of loss and missed opportunity. It starts by describing the setting, then moves on to feelings with which the reader can identify. Here Hardy shows his strengths of setting, voice and tense. The past and present tenses in the first stanza signal that the narrator is talking about past and present simultaneously – a paradox, like the title of the poem. The poem’s narrator exhibits feelings of futility in this view of the past and the dead. The metre/rhyme scheme

A Rose for Emily
Summary of Part I
The narrator of this story is the voice of the town rather than a specific person. The story begins with a recounting of when Miss Emily Grierson died, and how the whole town went to her funeral. The women of the town went mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which is "a big, squarish frame house that had once been white, decorated with cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies in the heavily lightsome style of the seventies, set on what had once been our most select street."
The reader then gets a explanation of why Miss Emily had been a "hereditary obligation upon the town." In 1894, the mayor, Colonel Sartoris, remitted her taxes

The response of the horse highlights certain dilemmas the traveler faces. The first being the beauty of the scene disregarding the practical concern of his surroundings and conditions he is in. Another is the attraction of the unknown, the mystery, the danger that may be associated with such circumstances.
The poem describes a state of solitude. When alone, not being seen, being able to watch unnoticed have certain temptations. This state of solitude requires decisions. Many times a simple reminder of the direction needed will assist in determining

‘Crossing’ is a short story published in 2009, by Mark Slouka. We are introduced to a depressed father, who takes his son on a trip, in the hope of achieving a stronger relationship with his son. The father appears to be very attached to his previous/past experiences with his own father, and in that context a theme such as the relationship between father and son can be related/connected to the text.
The story is told from a 3rd person limited narrator. The limited view is seen by the author’s attachment to the main character, who is the father. The story is described through the father’s point-of-view, which can be seen by the big insight the reader is given, on the father’s

happiness of Omelas stems from the immense and intentional suffering of one person: a small child who lives in a dark cellar and is continuously abused and neglected by the citizens. If the child were freed, it would supposedly lead to the destruction of this great city, therefore keeping it there is for the greater good. So who is to be pitied? LeGuinn presents us with a moral crossroads, a true question of ethics that is left open ended. Readers may interpret the text in many ways. They may choose to sympathize with the people of Omelas and agree with the narrator. Or, they may choose to make the revelation that there should be no happiness founded on the misery of others and blindness to

The story Chrysanthemums is told from a third-person point of view. In the story, the narrator refers to the characters as “he” or “she” rather than “I” and “you”. As well, the story is third-person because we read what the characters think and feel, like a camera recording. For example, this sentence from the story Chrysanthemums, “she heard her husband calling Scotty down by the barn. And a little later she saw the two men ride up the pale yellow hillside in search of the steers.” this sentence is referring to the characters and “she” and “her husband”.

Miss Emily’s inherited her house, but nothing else according to the narrator, “When her father died, it got about that the house was all that was left to her; and in a way, people were glad.” She lived alone for many years, except for her servant.

Explanation: This passage, from Book the First, Chapter 11, provides insight into the narrator’s beliefs and opinions. Dickens’s omniscient narrator assumes the role of a moral guide, and his opinion tends to shape our own interpretations of the story. Here, we learn that the narrator disagrees with Gradgrind, believing instead that human nature cannot be reduced to a bundle of facts and scientific principles. The narrator invokes the mystery of the human mind, pointing out how little we actually know about what motivates the actions of our fellow beings. The “quiet servants” to whom the narrator refers are the factory Hands. In representing

“Allegorizing is concentrating on the clear meaning of the narrative, people relegate the text to merely reflecting another meaning beyond the text.” (Fee & Stuart, 2003, page 103).

The second use of foreshadowing was the disappearance of Homer Barron. “A neighbor saw the Negro man admit him at the kitchen door at dusk one evening. And that was the last we saw of Homer Baron.” (Faulkner 33) The narrator interprets this as a sign that Homer has ended his relationship with Emily and left town. This foreshadowing actually tells us that he never left the house after that night and that was the last time he would

Miss Emily Grierson was raised by a narcissistic father who created an isolated woman. Her father secluded her from the rest of the world by assuring no one was good enough for her. After her beloved father’s death, she struggled to let him go. Later in her life, she meets a man named Homer Barron, who was in town to fix the town’s streets.

The dress is a symbol of Rachel and Flora’s relationship and it is very clear that when Flora buried the dress, it is a symbol of Flora burying the problems that Rachel and Flora have.

important for us to understand why Cinderella is treated so
differently from the other daughters. We don't actually experience this event in the story. Instead,
the narrator gives us this 'back-story' just before the actual first event that we do experience.
Flashback is used when the narrator or the main character takes the story back in time, and the
events go back and forth between the past and the present. Two examples of this include the
narratives from The Notebook and Forrest Gump. The narrators often jumped back and forth
between several events that occurred in the past to the present.
Flash-forward is seen when the writer allows the reader to see future events. This might be
something experienced by the character or it could be future circumstances and situations. A
Christmas Carol features a popular example of flash-forward, when the Ghost of Christmas Yet
