In the short story “Birthday Party” by Katharine Brush, may literary devices are used to achieve a purpose.

Towards the end Miller’s character anxiety begins to kick in on full effect and so does the reader it is as if we are feeling everything she is feeling. She uses this emotion to repeat her use of repetition of the saying “ A man I like is coming to dinner” I believe thi not only serves the purpose of the essay and emotion but also as a reminder to reader after all your reading its all for sole purpose that “ a man she likes is coming to

The Guardians is similarly structure to Revolution in that it makes use of short stories and asides to tell the whole tale that the author is attempting to convey to the audience.

My favorite story of the semester is Hangovers, the story one can easily portray what the story is about from the title. The descriptive narrative style the writer, Jennifer Pashley, used have the power to sketch the pictures of what are happing to the main character and other characters affected by his alcohol addiction.

Finally, the writer left the ending open so that the readers can get a choice to end the story as they
Motel rooms hold hundreds of stories and secrets, whether good or bad, within their walls. James Dickey’s “Adultery” and W.D. Snodgrass’s “Leaving the Motel,” are two different poems about a couple leaving their own sinful secret behind in a motel. Although both poems deal with the theme of married men and women involved in sexual affairs, the couples have different relationships regarding how the man truly feels toward the woman. The points of view, relationship between the couples, symbols within the motel rooms, and the role of guilt in both poems completely contrast from each other.

The movie “Mississippi Masala” directed by Mira Nair, is a heartwarming yet powerful film that reveals a side to racism, separation, and oppression that many may be unaware of. In a specific scene in the movie, the main character Mina attends a small gathering at the home of her romantic interest, Demetrius.
