Satisfactory Essays

Each story is unique in their own way. For each piece of literature, a name is to be branded for the piece of work. Titles are more often than none looked over, the reader anxious to flip through the pages of words. However, for some pieces of literature, the title of the story is the most fundamental part of the process in trying to understand a story. The short story “The Chaser” by John Collier is an excellent example as to why overlooking the title can be a great taboo. This story describes a desperate man’s attempts to make the love of his life love him back by a love potion. However, through the lines of the text, the old potion seller was hinting that further on in his consumer’s life, he would realize he had made a grave mistake.
