WHAT ARE "LITERARY WORDS"?

'Literary words' are associated with literature.
'Literary words' are typical of a work of literature and imaginative writing.
'Literary words' are used with a particular meaning, in narrative, drama, poetry and other writing in a literary manner.

This book has been divided into three sections:
Section 01: Common Literary Words
Section 02: Figurative Use of the Words
Section 03: Glossary of Literary Terms

IMPORTANT NOTES

NOTE -- A:
ELEVATED WORDS
Use of an 'Elevated' Word in Place of a 'Simple' Word
'Elevated language' is widely used in literature.
Elevated Word -- a word that is used to show a high intellectual level
Simple Word -- a word that is used to keep conversation simple in daily life

Example 1:
'Behold' [elevated word] | 'See' [simple word]
Meaning of 'behold' and 'see':
to become aware of something by using your eyes

Example 2:
'Blithe' [elevated word] | 'Happy' [simple word]
Meaning of 'blithe' and 'happy':
showing or feeling pleasure

******

NOTE -- B:
FIGURATIVE USE OF THE WORDS

Many words and phrases are used in a different (literary) wayfrom their usual (literal) meanings to produce a special effect. [I have put these words together in Section-2 (figurative use of the words) ofthis book.]

Example-1:
ache: In general sense --
to feel a continuous pain
His leg ached because of injury.
ache: In literary sense -- to be very sad
His false accusations made our heart ache. [= made us sad]

Example-2:
Flash: In general sense -- to shine brightly for a few moments
Camera flashed once.
Flash: In literary sense -- to suddenly show a strong emotion
Their eyes flashed with horror.

******

NOTE -- C:
'LITERARY TERMS'
There are many words which are used to describe particular formof writing in a literary work, or used in analysis, discussion,classification, and criticism of a literary work. [I have defined theseterms in Section-3 (glossary of literary terms) of this book.]

Examples:
catharsis -- the process of releasing strong feelings through artistic activities
diction -- the choice and use of words to create a specific effect in a literary work
epithet -- a word or expression used to attribute special quality to somebody/something
genre -- a particular category, style or type to which a literary wok belongs

panegyric -- a speech or written composition that praises somebody/something
prosody -- the patterns of rhythms and sounds in poetry

refrain -- a line or number of lines of a song or poem that is repeated after each verse
scene -- one of the small sections within an act (a major division) of a play
semantic -- relating to the meaning of words and sentences
trilogy -- a set of three books, plays, movies, etc. on the same characters or subject

figure of speech -- an expression in which a word or phraserepresents one thing in terms of something dissimilar (non-literal) tocreate a particular effect in somebody's mind, or in which an emphasisis produced by patterns of sound. [Some common figures of speech are asfollows -- alliteration, anaphora, antistrophe. apostrophe, assonance,consonance, hyperbole, irony, litotes, metaphor, metonymy, periphrasis,personification, simile, synecdoche]
