My story is A Fable, it’s a fable story by Mark Twain about how the animals were sent to look in the mirror only finding that they’re looking at themselves.
Mark Twain reveals character through dialog, by revealing the animal’s personalities.
In page 806 for the first conflict,
‘”It is a flat thing,” he said; “wonderfully flat, marvelously flat, enchantingly flat and elegant. And oh so beautiful.”
This sentence is now revealing character because, here by using this one sentence, we can imaginably see the cat speaking to his audience and how the cat is acting. This is evidence of dialog because, here the cat is revealing his personality of being smart by using big words to describe what a picture is like using the words enchantingly,marvelously, and elegant. Otherwise if the cat is stupid, then he would’ve only said something like super, really, and very or whatever.
In page 807 for the second conflict,
“He returned home and said; “The cat lied. There was nothing in that hole but an ass. There wasn’t a sign of a flat thing visible. It was a handsome ass, and friendly, but just an ass, and nothing more.”
This paragraph is showing us character because, here we can see the ass returning home, reporting that the cat lied and went into detail about what he saw in the mirror. This is evidence of dialog because, here the ass is revealing his personality of being a detailed like person by describing what he observed. Otherwise, if the ass wasn’t a detailed like person, then he only would’ve said a few words like, “The cat lied, there’s just an ass, no visible flat thing” something like that.
In page 808 for the third conflict,
“This is very strange,” said the elephant; “the cat was always truthful before-as far as we could make out. Let another witness try. Go, Baloo, look in the hole, and come and report.”
This sentence is showing us character because, here, using those sentences, we can imagine how confused the elephant is and how he’s commanding Baloo (the bear) to do what he was told. This is evidence of dialog because, here the elephant is revealing his personality of taking command like a leader, like how he commanded Baloo to look in the mirror. Otherwise, if the elephant wasn’t a leader, then he wouldn’t have commanded Baloo to look in the mirror.
