Homework Help: English!

Posted by george on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at 12:03pm.

What is the effectiveness of having a straightforward diction in a short story?


It's probably more realistic, especially if the story is told in a 20th or 21st century setting.

If you want to know what the difference would be, read a bit of Shakespeare, and then read a bit of DH Laurence.

Hemingway's work is also a good example of straightforward diction and style.
