Today I will be talking about what we learned during the year in our English 7 class.
Today the most important topics that i will be going over are the main 5 parts in literature, books that I have read, and different types of literature.
EXPOSITION, This is usually the boring part of the book, and if you have read a book you would understand that the exposition is usually the first few pages where they introduce the charterers, into the book and set the stage of what is happening. RISING ACTION, happens after the author introduces the characters and continues to start the book, and if you have read a book, when you have passed the boring part of the which are usually the first few pages of the book, you get into the juicy part which is the rising action. CLIMAX, now the climax usually happens right after the rising action, and the climax is the part which you read till the end until the falling action (I will show examples when I write about book that I have read). FALLING ACTION, now the falling action usually happens when the book slow to an end. RESOLUTION, the resolution is the end of the book they conclude the story, and as you get close to the last page they usually give us an epilogue.
My first book that I will review is, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea".
The exposition started when they introduced the main character and what was happening in the book, then the rising action began when they got on a boat and got destroyed by a submarine and were taken prisoners inside the sub. The climax was interesting they went hunting underwater, they found Atlantis etc.. When the falling action began they were planning their escape and when the day came they escaped and were washed a shore, and the resolution was that they kept this adventure a secret and lived happily ever after.
Second example "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".
Now this book started in a small hut where there lived a family and they introduced each character, the rising action was when Charlie found a golden ticket which let him into the chocolate factory, the climax was an adventure that they went inside of the factory and had an amazing adventure, the falling action was when Charlie (Charlie the main character) became the successor of the factory, and the resolution was that he and his family that live in the hut now lived inside the factory.
The third Example is the "Hobbit".
The Hobbit started in a hobbit hole with one character there was then a feast with all the characters included, the climax happened when they soon started a journey to slay a dragon, they went through many hardships together, they finally arrived where the dragon was sleeping, they worked together and they slayed the dragon, then the falling action was that the main character went home. Finally the resolution was that he wrote a book on his journey and he lived happily ever.
Now there are many more parts in writing a book, and hopefully I have named them all: setting, visualization, tone, theme, satire, Character development, dialogue, Milieu, Protagonist Antagonist, Rivalry, Primary Characters, Secondary Characters, Juxtaposition, Author style.
SETTING, the setting is the background of the story. VISUALIZATION, This is how the reader would interpret the book and how they would visualize it. TONE, the tone is how the author would portray the book. THEME, the theme is in between visualization and tone, it's what you think of the book. SATIRE, this is how an author would put a point across. CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, is how the author would develop the characters over time. DIALOGUE, the dialogue is how the characters would communicate with each other. MILIEU, is the social environment that characters live in. PROTAGONIST AND ANTAGONIST, the protagonist is the main character and the antagonist is the main bad guy in the book. RIVALRY, means that it has some type of competition int he book. PRIMARY CHARACTERS, the primary characters are the main characters, for example Harry Potter, Hermione, Ron are the primary characters. SECONDARY CHATTERERS, the secondary characters are for ex ,Dumbledore, Snape, etc. JUXTAPOSITION, it means when two characters meet and are put together. AUTHOR STYLE, the author style is how the author writes his book.
NOVEL, is a book that is long, and has many chapters, as the books above are all novels, they all have chapters and are extremely well lengthen, more examples for novels are, The Narnia Collection, Harry Potter Collection. NOVELLAS, are extremely sorter than novels, and they have very few chapters, the only example I can think off that is a novella is the book "A Christmas Carol". SHORT STORY, is an even shorter than a novella, they have no chapters, one example is The Brothers Grim, or The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. POEMS, poems..........well I believe that poems are self-explanatory, but just to be sure, poems are short stories that rhyme. DRAMAS, dramas are usually used in theater plays, Broadway shows, and are sometimes are used in movies.
Without a genre your book would be extremely boring, and that is why genre are important.
REALISTIC FICTION, realistic fiction is accurately based of the world we live in. SCIENCE FICTION, scientific fiction is a genre which has imagined science, they usually based in space or based in the future. HISTORICAL FICTION, this is usually based on true events during the past. HISTORICAL ACCOUNTS, so historical accounts are based off document newspapers, and eyewitness reports. HORROR, horror is a book which leave the readers in fear, shock and dread. FANTASY, fantasy usually have magic, potions, wands and even magical creatures. MYTHOLOGY, are usually a legend and sometimes based of historical accounts, some example are, Odysseus, Thor, Zeus, etc. COMEDY, this is my favorite genre, comedy make people laugh, they are very humorous and have good jokes, they can be used in plays, and even movies. ALLEGORY, are poems that have a hidden meaning. BIOGRAPHIES, these are based on people's lives, but these were written by someone else. AUTOBIOGRAPHIES, these are people who write their own books of their lifetime, practically it's the complete opposite of biographies. FABLES/PARABLES, these are extremely short stories with a moral to it.
That is it, I hope you enjoyed my term paper for English 7, and have a good day!
