development of characterization
1. As we have examined several short stories, we have begun to look at some of the elements (or basic foundations) of short fiction. With that in mind please write about either the use of symbolism or the development of characterization in any one of the short stories on our list.
Topic: Write it out and circle the key words.
The use of Symbolism in short story
Subject: In a word or phrase.
Symbolism plays an imperative role in developing of the short story.
Position: What point do you want to make? (in a sentence).
Symbolism is reveled as a touching portrait of an awakening of consciousness by the writer about the long human struggle and its ties to family and social standing.
Thesis: Subject + Position + Main Point logically arranged in a sentence.
In literature, symbolism is used to provide meaning to the writing beyond what is actually being described. The plot and action that take place in a story can be thought of as one level, while the symbolism of certain things in the writing acts on another level to enhance the story. It is a product of the culture of the day and reveals the culture in return.
Evidence: Main points + supporting detail; indicate logical statements and transitions.
The Loons is just a typical story with symbolism from beginning till the end, Through the parallel of loons and Piquette, it is easy to find their common inability to change themselves and their environment, loons are unable to adapt to modern human invasion; Piquette is unable to escape the cultural stereotypes imposed on her. The novel reflects the ecological and ethical crises between man and nature and among humans for conquest and criticizes the power ideology embodied in the crises. Vanessa casually describes Piquette’s tuberculosis and is embarrassed by her. She ignores Piquette rather than recognizing her as a human being.
Conclusion: In a sentence or two.
At the conclusion of the story, Laurence suggests that Vanessa and the white culture she represents will continue to destroy Métis culture until all that remains is a distant memory, like the unforgettable cry of the vanishing loons.
Rough Draft of Introduction: Underline the thesis.
Margaret Laurence showcases the contrary themes of paralysis and freedom through the clever use of symbolism in this story. More specifically, it demonstrates how paralysis is symbolized by the life circumstances of the character Piquette, which includes her family, her health and the shack she inhabits, while freedom is symbolized by the loons.
In the face of modernization, it is inevitable for a minority culture to be assimilated. The Indians were known to the world because of their harmonious relationship with the nature. Piquette is metaphorically referred as the loons who were forced to change their lifestyle or die out. The beautiful singings of the loons will only remain in our mind just as the culture of the Indians will one day be known to the world through museums. The author left a question to the readers; What drove away the loons? In other words, what we can do to prevent the minority cultures from fading away. The dying out of Indian culture remains as a tragedy. To prevent this tragedy from happening again, the only option is to break the stereotype that is tagged on the minority and to coexist with respect rather than drive out the minorities.
