[2015] 3jasmine: The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault In Our StarsBy:John Green

Irony: when the outcome of a situation is oppostite of what the reader might have expected.Irony: the irony in The Fault In Our Stars is how Hazel was hesitant about starting a relationship with Augustus because she knows that death is inevitable and didnt want to hurt him because she has cancer and felt like she was going to die soon but even though readers were under the impression that Augustus was free of cancer, he became ill again and actually ended up hurting her in the end when he passed away.

Symbolism:the practice of using an object to represent itself as well as representing something broader than itself. Symbolism: Augustus's cigarrettes are an example of symbolism. The cigarretes represent death. Augustus puts the cigarette, "the killing thing", between his lips but doesnt light it and give it the ability or power to kill him. He's taking his life into his own hands.

Personification: the technique of assigning human qualities to non-human objects.Personification: In the story Hazel recalls a memory of when she was younger and was first diagnosed with lung cancer and says "I remember once early on when I couldn't get my breath and it felt like my chest was on fire, flames licking the inside of my ribs fighting for a way to burn out of my body, my parents took me to the ER."

Foreshadowing: clues that hint at an important plot development that is to follow in a story.Foreshadowing: During the plane ride to Amsterdam, Hazel Grace and Augustus Decide to watch a movie. Augustus starts his movie before Hazel Grace does so he is seconds ahead of her, he knows what is going to happen in the movie before she does. The same applies to his cancer. Augustus knew before Hazel did that his cancer was back and he knew his time with Death would come before Hazel's time.

Metaphor: a comparison that does not use the words "like" or "as".Metaphor: an example of a metaphor is used when Hazel Grace and Issac go over to Augustus's house after a Suppost Group meeting and Augustus's mother asks Augustus if he enjoyed the meeting and he gives a sarcastic answer, promting his mother to say "You're such a Debbie Downer." She is comparing Augustus to someone who takes the fun out of things.

Simile: a comparison using the words "like" or "as".Simile: As the seeds were blowing out of the elm trees along the canals, Hazel uses several similies to describe them "They didnt look like seeds. They looked for all the world like miniaturized rose petal drained of their color. These pale petals were gathering in the wind like flocking birds- thousands of them, like a spring snowstorm."

Conflict: the stuggle between two opposing forces.Conflict: there are several examples of conflict throughout the story. Not only does Hazel and Augustus battle their conflicts with cancer but they both battle conflicts with their feelings as well. Hazel doesnt feel like she is good enough for Augustus because she has cancer and she knows that her lungs will always give her problems and that death is inevitable but at the same time she feels herself falling inlove with him. She thinks as he reads " I fell inlove the way you fall asleep, slowly and then all at once."

Oxymoron: figure of speech in which opposite ideas are combined.Oxymoron: when Augustus explains to Hazel how inlove with her he is, Hazel Grace explained the experience saying "It felt like everything was rising up in me, like i was drowning in the weirdly painful joy, but i couldn't say it back."
