- how mode, medium and form shape responses to texts (ACELR002)
- the differences between initial personal responses and more studied and complex responses (ACELR003)
- how responses of readers and viewers can range from empathetic to critical. (ACELR004)
|Analyse distinctive features in literary texts including:
- how text structures, language features and stylistic elements shape meaning and create particular effects and nuances, for example, through allusions, paradoxes and ambiguities (ACELR005)
- different points of view represented in texts, for example, those of characters, narrators and the implied author (ACELR006)
- approaches to characterisation, for example, the inclusion of archetypal figures, authorial intrusion, the dramatisation of a character’s inner life, and the use of interior monologue (ACELR007)
- different narrative approaches, for example, eye-witness accounts, multiple narrators, the unreliable narrator and the omniscient narrator (ACELR008)
- the use of figurative language and rhetorical devices to represent concepts and shape arguments, for example, symbolism, metonymy, types of irony, patterns of imagery (ACELR009)
