Practical Exercise


Time to plunge into the depths of literary craftsmanship, to touch the canvas of words and the quill, as sharp as a sword. Your mission in this assignment is to employ the unique styles of famous authors and use literary techniques in your creations. This task will give you a unique opportunity to practically apply your acquired knowledge and develop your understanding of various writing styles.


  1. Choose a favorite author and identify their unique style. It could be anyone from Shakespeare to J.K. Rowling. Ask ChatGPT to analyze the style of the chosen author.

  2. Ask ChatGPT to explain to you several key literary techniques used by that author. These could include allegory, metaphors, antithesis, and so forth.

  3. Write a short passage in the style of the selected author, using the identified literary techniques. Ask ChatGPT for help with this, for example: "Write a short excerpt in the style of J.K. Rowling, using allegory."

  4. After you have written your excerpt, ask ChatGPT to analyze it. Your goal is to ensure that you have correctly used the chosen literary techniques and the author's style.


"I chose Shakespeare as an author for analysis. ChatGPT explained to me that Shakespeare often uses iambic pentameter, metaphors, and dramatic irony in his works. I asked ChatGPT to write a passage in the style of Shakespeare, using a metaphor. Here is what it came up with: 'Upon the broad canvas of the heavens, where stars but needles in the dark be, my soul is likened to a lone vessel, sailing through the night.' Afterward, I asked ChatGPT to analyze the passage, and it confirmed that I correctly used metaphor and Shakespeare's style."


With ChatGPT, you are not just studying theory; you are applying it in practice, allowing the model to assist you in writing in the style of your favorite authors or employing various literary techniques. This makes the learning process interactive and fun.

Remember, the importance of these lessons is not only to learn how to use the tools ChatGPT offers. It is also about becoming better at writing, deepening your understanding of literature, and discovering new ways of expression.
