Fictional Devices
Symbolism: the art of investing meaning in a thing which, in the context of the story, comes to represent some other thing (e.g. colors, animals, geography/place, numbers, metaphors, inanimate objects)

Irony: the use of words being used in direct opposition to the literal meaning (Think of Chris Farley’s use of finger quotes) or a stark contrast between what is expected to occur and what actually transpires

Satire: the use of sarcasm, irony, or parody to poke fun at and critique vice or folly (e.g. The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, political cartoons)

Theme: the subject or unifying idea, which contains the thesis of the story (It’s what the story is about!)
