Literacy 3

This is just a semi-random assortment of literary items that may be useful for you. Connotations is an idea, meaning, or feeling that is associated with a word (like thrifty and stingy having very similar meanings, but different connotations). Denotations is the definition or literal meaning of a word (thrifty and stingy have similar denotations).

The perspective is the viewing point that a piece is composed from. The theme is a message about life that is sentences long, while the topic of a piece is a few words and is the subject of a story. A symbol is something that stands or resembles something beyond itself.

Direct quotations come straight from a speaker, like “I am made of apple pie,” said Guacamole (there will be quotation marks). Indirect quotation is not coming directly from a speaker (no quote marks), for example: He said that it would not work. Quotations can be before, after, or both in the sentence in comparison to stating the speaker. These all have different rules.

Now you have some okay quality information to use. I hope that this guide was useful, and will publish more articles like this one later on in time. Have a nice day!
