Recognizing patterns in literature can enhance both the stylistic appreciation and comprehension of it, making it easier to read.  For example, in understanding repetition of stylistic themes of motifs, a reader can better grasp the desired effect of the writer and understand more of the text for it allows a glimpse into the mind of the writer.  When an example of foreshadowing is evident in a work of literature, the reader understands that it is intended to foretell something essential to happen.  This helps to understand both structure of the text and comprehension of it, making it easier to read.  Sometimes, recognizing a narrative pattern can also help to understand intent of the author and character development.  If an author adopts a specific style of writing, such as a stream of consciousness mode, it proves challenging on first glance, but in its comprehension and analysis, a greater meaning of the work is evoked.  Finally, the recognition of patterns allows for a greater appreciation of the work, as it becomes the subject of analysis and thought, revealing more intricacies and nuances, contributing to greater understanding of the work, making it easier to read due to the amount of study and thought devoted to it.
