- Chrysanthemums By Steinback - 833 words
Chrysanthemums By Steinback A good writer has many tools at hand that help them develop good story lines. There are literary techniques such as voice, point of view, character, theme, and symbolism. One very interesting technique is that of symbolism. With symbolism the author is able to write a story in which many of the actions around the main character seem to enhance the way the character develops. The use of symbolism to develop the characters is easy to see in the short story "the chrysanthemums" by John Steinback. In this story Steinback writes of a woman who lives on a farm; but the woman feels trapped, and wishes that she could free herself. The author uses both the time of year and ...

- Symbolism In The Crysanthemums - 707 words
Symbolism In The Crysanthemums Symbolism in The Chrysanthemums At first glance John Steinback's The Chrysanthemums' seems to be a story of a woman whose niche is in the garden.

- The Grapes Of Wrath: The Purpose Of The Interchapters - 737 words
The Grapes of Wrath: The Purpose of the Interchapters - Sara Stark Initially, I found the interchapters to be annoying, interruptions to the story. It was only when I realized the point in having the interchapters that I understood that not only did they not interrupt the story, but they added to it tremendously. The interchapters provide indirect comments or general situations which suggest something about the personal tragedies of the main characters. These comments and situations help give the reader an understanding of what the characters are going through by either showing metaphorically their present or future triumphs and struggles or explaining the history of the period that they liv ...
