Week 5
Dr. Raihana thought us several new figurative language terms and aspects to literature that i thought i'd highlight here. do enjoy :)

text+language+techniques= MEANING

foreshadow= subtle hints of what's going to happen, predicting possibilities to come
flashback= going back to the past
innertalk= thoughts from the head, usually in soliloquys
imply= to hint at

*when reading a text focus on dialogue but also the "unsaid" stuff
* literature is full of conflict because it mirrors life

1. Omniscient- 3rd person voice, all knowing, can enter character's minds'
2. Third person limited- he or she
3. First person- I
4. Objective- recording what is seen and heard but doesn't comment on thoughts
