Narrative Techniques Central Metaphor - A device where meaning is changed, or transferred, from one entity to another. It involves a concept. The meaning is longer and deeper than a metaphor, more difficult to define due to its overriding nature. o Alice’s puppet show = a trope for the plight of the worker/migrant experience o “…they were like targets. All the puppets looked stunned…on this dangerous new country of the stage. Their costumes were a blend of several nations.” Pg.121 Puppets as a metaphor for the immigrant class; they are the targets of political exploitation, stunned and lost. The metaphor is made most obvious by the fact that the stage is a ‘strange new country’ through which the puppets must travel, controlled by their dark puppeteers. They are indeed a ‘blend of several nations’ all coming together to form the amorphous mass that is the working class. Intertextuality - ‘Textus’: a woven fabric - links between different texts o gives texts greater depth “The joyful will stoop with sorrow, and when you have gone to the earth I will let my hair grow long for your sake, I will wander through the wilderness in the skin of a lion.” – The Epic of Gilgamesh  Story of identity, friendship, love, loss and tragedy – themes which echo throughout the novel
