Elements to Fiction
After reading the traits of Fiction, it became less ambiguous and more coherent as to what Fiction really is. To be honest, most of the examples that were used in the essay were already clear to me from the start. For example, a plot should have an analysis of Exposition, Rising Action,Turning Point, Climax, Falling Action, and Conclusion. What I am wondering is if every piece of literature that is Fiction must include these traits in order to progress the story further and to keep the reader interested or would there be any other process in Fiction that could work and still keep readers interested? Also, the sense of external and internal reality is clear to me, but I’m still confused as to how it applies to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s story, “Young Goodman Brown”? Finally, must there always be narration to a Fiction story, and does anyone believe it would actually put emphasis on the plot?
