This does not mean that his character literally changes or responds to Diaz’s multitude of references. In fact, the readers themselves change their view or interpretation of Oscar as a result of the references. If one was not initially convinced of Oscar’s ghetto nerd personality, some of the nerd culture references will easily confirm it. In the beginning of the book, when Oscar actually has two girlfriends it perceptibly blows up in his face, so he simply returns home to his nerdy television shows, “Herculoids and Space Ghost,” which is practically foreshadowing him going completely without love and deeper into his nerd nature (14). Also, if the reader finds Oscar to be self-conflicting or possessing mixed views, Diaz’s allusion heavy writing style tends to emphasize what the reader should understand.

Immediately after Elizabeth leaves Mr. Hooper, Hathorne asserts, “But, even amid his grief, Mr. Hooper smiled to think that only a material emblem had separated him from his happiness through the horrors, for which it shadows forth must be drawn darkly between the fondest of lovers.” The material emblem mentioned in this quotation is a metaphor for the black veil, and commonly an emblem is given a positive connotation representing something that is of help; however, it is evident that this veil is meant to have a negative connotation as it continues to symbolize death and sins. By Hawthorne claiming it shadows forth must be drawn darkly between the fondest of lovers, he means that no matter how to what extent two people love each other, a relationship that is not built on the basis of trust will not last. This illustrates how this very black veil has separated him from his fiancée who is just letting him slowly die on the inside all alone without any support. This depicts how no matter if you are a man or a woman, the loss of your significant other leaves you in the deep sea in depression. All in all, along with a pitiful tone, this solemn tone is also a significant part towards the development of this
Every human has a somber attitude hidden inside oneself that is exposed only in certain situations. The novel Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, is an excellent example of the evils that escape one in dangerous matters as it occurs to it’s characters. With Goldings rigorous tale of a group of stranded young boys and their suffering on an uncharted island, he creates an intensely frightening mood for his readers, which allows his tone to be portrayed. William Golding provides a clear description of his cynical and apathetic tone, using Imagery, Language, and Syntax. Golding uses Imagery on setting, objects, locations, and environments to interact with the readers senses, which creates a fearful mood, allowing an apathetic and cynical tone.

Moreover the shirts can also represent how a life with Gatsby would be “colorful” and full of life, while Tom just sucks the life and color out of Daisy. Again, the scene where Daisy rethinks her engagement and potential marriage with Tom is an excellent example which demonstrates that Daisy is indecisive when it comes to Gatsby. Even though she is in a drunken state at the time, Daisy still feels that happiness with Gatsby would win over a lifetime of wealth with Tom. Lastly, Nick simply states, “Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space. With an effort she glanced down at the table.
The promises of love died like the Pacific Trade Winds forgetting their promise to keep the tropical islands cool. She, like the windless islands, knew the stench of failure. She took the kids and left, hoping a movie would lighten their hearts as she tried to figure out what to do next. Plane tickets were going to be expensive and there was the matter of the house and cars. She did the finances in the family and knew that debt had been what was keeping them together, but also tearing them apart.
Allie and kids symbolize the “catching”.The cliff symbolizes adulthood .Holden believes that adults are all phonies (which is hypocritical of him because even Though Holden constantly talks about other people being phony he is himself often phony. At various times in the novel, he tells pointless lies, claims to like or agree with things he hates, goes out with girls he doesn 't like, all to try to feel less lonely and left out).In chapter 17 Holden says “Then, just to show you how crazy I am, when we were coming out of this big clinch, I told her I loved her and all. It was a lie, of course, but the thing is, I meant it when I said it. I 'm crazy. I swear to God I am”.

He was very particularly fond of speaking on cruise ships, sorting through invitations to find a plum voyage, kicking back on the first-class deck with a cool drink in hand, and reveling in the ocean. Louie, being concerned that accepting fat honoraria would discourage schools and small groups from asking him to speak, declined anything over modest fees. He made just enough money to keep Cissy and her little brother, Luke-in diapers, then later in blue jeans, and finally college. Over the years, Louie received an absurd number of awards and honors. For example, the Lomita Flight Strip, which had been renamed Louie Zamperini Field while Louie was languishing in Naoetsu, was rededicated to him not once more, but twice.
Charles Perrone, also known as Chaz, was married to his wife, Joey, until he threw her overboard from the side of a cruise ship. Chaz failed in his attempt of murdering his wife, Joey, but he believes that she is dead at sea. Hiaasen uses the setting of the couple’s house to influence Chaz’s emotions. Chaz is a man who values physical attraction over emotional interest, therefore it is fitting that being in the house that he once shared with his wife would trigger his sexual desires. After entering the house, Chaz recalls the details of his wife that he loved the most, thinking that “The place smelled lightly of Joey’s favorite perfume, a scent that never failed to arouse him,” (70).
