Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, Karlsruhe University of Education, language: English, abstract: This paper provides an overview of crucial features of a short story and explores the importance of variations on figurative language in short stories. The ethnic short story "The Rudy Elmenhurst Story" by Julia Alvarez is used as an example to show the usage and significance. Due to various interpretations, I wrote a summary of the short story and handed it to some family members and friends to collect different ideas. The summary and the readers' reactions can also be found in this paper.
