Стилистический анализ текста: Katherine Mansfield “Bliss”
The text under stylistic analysis is taken from the book “Bliss” by Katherine Mansfielod. This text is about 30 years old woman, whose name was Bertha Young and she was overcome by feeling of bliss.
At the beginning of the text the author described the feeling and emotional state of woman. To show it he uses hyperbola “absolute bliss”. Also the author uses anthisesis – “to run instead of work” and “to throw up smth in the air and catch it again” – to show her emotional state.
She came back home and asled housekeeper whose name was Mary, did the fruits come? Mary said that everything is come. Bertha asked her to bring it to the dining room.
Then we can see the description and feelings of not very young woman. Here are such SD: epithet as “bright glowing place”, “radiant woman” and metaphors as “shower of little sparks” and “air of listening waiting for smb” for more bright expression what this woman is feeling.
At the next part we can see following: among the fruits which Mary brought were tangerines, apples, strawberries, white grapes and big cluster purple grape. Bertha bought it to tone in with her new dining-room carpet. It had seemed quite sense for her at the time when she bought it.
The main idea of this text: people shouldn;t close themselves but enjoy their lives.
As for me I like this text because it is useful example of being enjoyed with the life instead of keeping sbut up in a case like a rare fiddle.
