Transcript of Copy of Three Skeleton Key- Elements of a Short Story
What is Setting? The setting is the time and place of a story that sets the atmosphere. The setting also includes the mood that the author is trying to portray. For example, if the story is revolved around a playground, the mood would most likely be joyful, bubbly, fresh and youthful. What does "Foreshadowing" mean? Foreshadowing is the author's way of giving the reader hints or clues which allow the reader to sense or predict what the outcome of the story will be after a series of events that lead to this point. What is Point-of-View? The point-of-view of a character in a story is the relationship between the narrator and the story being told.
What is Conflict? The conflict of a story is the struggle or problem within the story in which the main character, the protagoist, is opposed. ( This must involve the protagonist). Further explanation (: what is figurative language? Figurative language is language that uses words or expressions with a different meaning that is different from the literal interpretation. Figurative Language; There are many examples of figurative languauge in Three Skeleton Key. One example is: "Le Gleo became morose and had nightmares in which he would see the three skeletons dancing around
him". This is an example of personification because the author is giving the skeletons human qualities by making them DANCE, which they can't because they are no longer human, just a pile of bones. What is suspense? Suspense is quality in a work of fiction that arouses excited expectation or uncertainty about what may happen, feelings of anxiety or excitement. Suspense; In Three Skeleton Key, there are many literary elements that affect the suspense. For instance, the figurative language provides a vision that you can close your eyes and picture once the author uses a simile or metaphor. For example, this simile: " Some of the rats fought amongst themselves, and some would fall away from the cluster like a ripe fruit from its tree. This creates a chilling mood that triggers the thought of these rats doing anything they can to defeat even one of their own to satisfy their hunger. They've been starving and they won't let anyone or anything get in their way. You can imagine a thousand rats clinging to eachother, multiplying the odor that'd burn your eyes and hypnotize you into imagining things that aren't there, giving them advantage over your weak state.
