Question:

Answer:

A dangling modifier is a prepositional phrase that modifies a subject not clearly identified in the sentence. Dangling modifier: A professional violinist turned business leader, Lena's career trajectory is remarkable. Corrected version: A professional violinist turned business leader, Lena has a had a remarkable career trajectory. In the first sentence, the dangling modifier (A professional violinist turned business leader) modifies Lena's career trajectory, not Lena herself, making the sentence incorrect. In the corrected version the dangling modifier modifies Lena, the subject of the sentence.

Question:

What effect does the third person narration of the Dilsey's section of William Faulkner's "Sound and the Fury" (italicize title) create for the novel as a whole?

Answer:

The third person narration of Dilsey's section emulates how Dilsey, a black, female servant within the Compson household, is a marginal position within the household. The characters have trouble understanding her as a person; thus, incorporating the third person narration creates a similar distance between the reader and Dilsey. Conversely, the third person narration can be a symbol of Dilsey's all-knowingness. Although she is a servant she has agency over the everyday ongoing of the house; this knowledge allow her to possess an omnipresent aura over the Compson household as reflected by the overarching, all-knowing third person narration.

Question:

What is the definition of free indirect discourse and how can it be detected in a piece of literature?

Inactive

Answer:

Free indirect discourse is a type of third person narration that seems to coalesce with the protagonist's own thoughts or consciousness. This literary technique is at play if the narrator's style begins to subtly take on the protagonist's personality.
