From the Student as Watson to the Student as Holmes: An Approach to Fiction.
Bruton, Stella P.
This paper describes an approach to teaching students to become more sensitive to voice, audience, and meaning in fiction. Examined are several passages of monologue, including a passage spoken by a character named Mr. Tyler in the opening of E.M. Forster's "The Story of a Panic." The rhetorical triangle made up of speaker, audience, and subject is discussed, and it is recommended that students become close observers of these factors in fiction. (TS)
