Literary element

A literary element, or narrative element, or element of literature is a constituent of all works of narrative fiction—a necessary feature of verbal storytelling that can be found in any written or spoken narrative. This distinguishes them from literary techniques, or non-universal features of literature that accompany the construction of a particular work rather than forming the essential characteristics of all narrative. For example, plot, theme, character and tone are literary elements, whereas figurative language, irony, or foreshadowing would be considered literary techniques.

Part Two of the presentation of literary elements with creative, sometimes (necessarily) cliched explanations and examples of the points discussed. Really fast-paced but easy to grasp.

Quick, concise, succinct, slightly tacky and humorous video of different literary elements.
