Characteristics of language
? 1 The Writing Style
?In

writing style, O. Henry uses the civilian language, therefore readers can easily understand what he wants to express. ?Another characteristic of his language is implicative. His sense of humor expresses indirectly. Readers can still recall after reading.

Characteristics of language
? 2 The rhetoric(修辞法)
? ?O. Henry uses a large number of rhetoric in his novels, such as simile(明 喻), metaphor(暗喻) and irony(讽刺). It makes readers experience his sense of humor vividly.

Characteristics of language
? Metaphor(暗喻)
? In O. Henry’s writings, metaphor is a feature which is worth mentioning. The image in metaphor represents specific meaning. But the symbolic image remains uncertain in its possible meanings; it is usually a substantial image in its own right, around which further significances may gather according to differing interpretations.

Characteristics of language
? Simile(明喻)
? O. Henry pays more attention to the simile. O. Henry uses simile not only in the frequency of usage but also in other aspects. Of all kinds of figures, colorful and varied in scenery, common things and phenomenon in daily life which always having simile only can enter the story world of O. Henry.

Characteristics of language
? Irony(讽刺)
? O’ Henry uses Soapy as the typical figure in the novel The Cop and the Anthem and takes American New York as an example reflects truly the poor people’s hard life at that time and uses ironic(讽刺癿) manner to criticize the unfair of society and shows the strong contrast between material civilization and spiritual civilization and political civilization. ? “Soapy had confidence in himself from the lowest button of his vest upward.”

Characteristics of language
? 3 The plot
? ? In plot, O. Henry’ s novels develop fast and in the end suddenly appear an unexpected ending. The so-called “O. Henry-type ending” usually refers that at the end of the novel suddenly the character’s mind changes in an unexpected situation, or the fate of the main character reverses sharply, the result is unexpected, but reasonable, in line with the reality of life, resulting in a unique artistic charm.

the Famous Aphorisms by O. Henry
? When one loves one?s art no service seems too hard. ? 一旦热爱艺术,什么奉献也不难。 ? “It was beautiful and simple as all truly great swindles are.” (from The Octopus Marooned?) ? “这简单漂亮的就和那些真实伟大的诈骗一般。” ? A story with a moral appended is like the bill of a mosquito. It bores you, and then injects a stinging drop ot irritate your conscience. ? 一篇含有教训的小说,像是蚊子的嘴。它先使你讨厌,然后注入一 滴 螫入的液体,来烦扰你的良知。

? ? ?

If man knew how women pass the time when they are alone, they?d never marry. 如果男人晓得女人在独自的时候怎样消磨时间,他们永远不会结婚。 What a woman wants is what you?re out of. She wants more of a thing when it?s scarce. 女人所想要的东西,就是你所没有的东西。当一种东西变为稀少的时 候, 她便要想多要一些。 Love and business and family and religion and art and patriotism are nothing but shadows of words when a man?s starving! 当一个人吃不饱饭的时候,爱情、事业、家庭、宗教、艺术和爱国都 只是空 洞的言词而已。 Life is fine and enjoyable, yet you must learn to enjoy your fine life. 人生是美好的,但你必须会享用美好的生活。 Perhaps there is no happiness in life so perfect as the martyr. 也许人生中的任何幸福都不如殉道者的幸福的那样完美。

The End .
Thank You.
