Transcript of Term Review

Theme The theme of a piece is its view on some aspect of life or how people behave. Allusion Term Review This is a reference to something outside of a piece of text. These references are usually to other pieces of literature to mythology, to the Bible, or to history. It is similar to the moral of the story. It is what the writer wants you to learn or take away from a piece of literature.

Theme is written in a complete sentence. Even if it is difficult, people should live up to their responsibilities because they are needed by those around them. Possible Theme for The Lion King: Tone This is the speaker's or author's attitude (feelings) about the subject of the piece. In the beginning, the narrator's tone is sarcastic when he is talking about First World Problems (FWP). Near the end, the narrator's tone is disgusted. His disgust is made evident by the "advice" that he gives to sufferers of FWP. Diction This is the author's word choice. Denotation This is the dictionary meaning of a word. Example: sigh - to let out one's breath audibly Connotation These are the meanings or feelings that we give to words sigh: frustration sigh: relief The fighting style is an allusion to the video game Street Fighter. Symbolism This is the use of an object or word to represent an abstract idea. The clock in "Masque of the Red Death" symbolizes the passing of time in our lives. http://abigaillarson.deviantart.com/art/The-Masque-of-the-Red-Death-146209289 The bald eagle is a symbol of strength and power. http://www.elkspringsresort.com/gatlinburg_cabins_blog/elk-springs-resort-salutes-the-troops-this-year-on-veterans-day/ Imagery This is the use of vivid and descriptive language. It appeals to one or more of the five senses. (sight, sound, touch, taste, feel) A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way Daffodils

describe setting ANN: Mercy, you go home to Ruth, d’ye hear?
MERCY: Aye, Mum. (Ann goes out.)
PARRIS: If she starts for the window, cry for me at once. (Crossing to door.)
ABIGAIL: Yes, Uncle. (He goes out with Putnam.) How is Ruth sick?
MERCY: It’s weirdish, I know not—she seems to walk like a dead one since last night.
ABIGAIL: Now look you, if they be questioning us tell them we danced—I told him as much already.
MERCY: And what more?
ABIGAIL: He saw you naked.
MERCY: Oh, Jesus! (Falls back on bed. Enter Mary Warren, breathless. She is seventeen, a subservient, naïve girl.)
MARY: I just come from the farm, the whole country’s talking witchcraft! They’ll be callin’ us witches, Abby! Abby, we’ve got to tell. Witchery’s a hangin’ error, a hangin’ like they done in Boston two years ago! We must tell the truth, Abby!—you’ll only be whipped for dancin’, and the other things!
ABIGAIL: (Betty whimpers.) Betty? Now, Betty, dear, wake up now. It’s Abigail. (She sits Betty up, furiously shakes her.) I’ll beat you, Betty! (Betty whimpers.) My, you seem improving. I talked to your papa and I told him everything. So there’s nothing to…
BETTY: (Betty suddenly springs off bed, rushes across room to window where Abigail catches her.) You drank blood, Abby, you drank blood!
ABIGAIL: (Dragging Betty back to bed and forcing her into it.) Betty, you never say that again! You will never…
BETTY: You did, you did! You drank a charm to kill John Proctor’s wife! You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor!
ABIGAIL: (Slaps her face.) Shut it! Now shut it! (Betty dissolves into sobs.) Now look you. All of you. We danced. And Tituba conjured Ruth Putnam’s dead sisters. And that is all. And mark this—let either of you breathe a word, or the edge of a word about the other things, and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you. And you know I can do it. I can make you wish you had never seen the sun go down! (Betty cries louder. She goes to Betty, sits L. side of bed D.S. of Mercy, and roughly sits her up.) Now you… sit up and stop this! (Betty collapses in her hands.) (Enter John Proctor.)
PROCTOR: Be you foolish, Mary Warren? Be you deaf? I forbid you leave the house, did I not? Now get you home; (Mary crosses up and out.) my wife is waitin’ with your work!
MERCY: (Rising, crossing to entrance. Titillated. Being aware of their relationship.) I’d best be off. I have my Ruth to watch… Good morning, Mister Proctor. (Mercy sidles out. Since Proctor’s entrance, Abigail has stood absorbing his presence, wide-eyed.) Point-of-View 1st Person Point-of-View The narrator of the story is a character.

Example: "It was really disturbing when..." The themes in both pieces are similar in that both speakers feel shame. In "Mi Problema," the speaker feels "unworthy" of being Hispanic because she does not speak Spanish. Even though her skin is "brown like [theirs]," she is ashamed and made to feel like an outcast. In "Taco Head," the speaker asks her mom for "some lunch money ... or a sandwich" for lunch instead of tacos. She is ashamed of her tacos because she is worried about being call a "beaner," so she tries to hide who she is from others. The Crucible
