Concept Development: Ambiguity Offers readers a choice of more than one meaning or interpretation Keeps readers guessing, wondering, and reflecting Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature

"[Ambiguity] allows for two or more simultaneous interpretations of a word, phrase, action, or situation, all of which can be supported by the context of a work. Deliberate ambiguity can contribute to the effectiveness and richness of a work.... However, unintentional ambiguity obscures meaning and can confuse readers."

Why use ambiguity? Ambiguous stories tend to linger in readers minds the longest because ambiguity challenges readers imaginations. They encourage readers to discuss their thoughts and ideas with others. CFU: Tell your partner an example of a movie, book, or story that is ambiguous.
