The second-person form that Kincaid uses throughout her essay is incredibly effective, and it allows the reader to be more involved in the story itself. In most cases, an author would just refer to the tourists as just that: tourists. However, through her use of the words “you” and “your,” Kincaid is able to make the work more personal to the reader. After recognizing the second-person point of view that is being used, the reader will most likely consider how they fit into the generalization Kincaid makes about tourists. If the reader feels uncomfortable by Kincaid’s accusations and attacking tone throughout the work, this is most likely part of her plan.
Style plays a vastly important role in the narration of “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas.” In most basic terms, “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” is a short story told in first person point of view, where the narrator is not a participant in the narrative.

The whole purpose of Moldaw story was to share the memories she has of her father and show how much of an impact he had on her and her son’s. This story can appeal to almost anyone it is a raw nonfiction short story that anyone could relate to. This is the kind of writers that Biostories strives to attract, writers who can write creatively about something or someone that is not significant to the rest of the world but significant to them personally. Moldaw organized her story in chronological order of her father’s experiences and tells the whole story in first person to involve the reader further into the story.

To the untrained eye, a story could be viewed one-dimensionally; a tale might only appeal to emotion while logic is left out in the cold. Equally, logic may be forgotten while emotion is heavily focused on. However, through the use of Critical Lenses, readers can begin to see greater depth in literature. As readers find connections through Critical Lenses, they become more educated on various topics, more aware of social, political, and even logical abstractions. Instead of failing to retain the intent and content of the material, they even can remember details of stories more vividly when truly examining literature rather than reading it once for entertainment (or chore).

Kincaid directly speaking to the reader, they are able to understand and acknowledge her feelings. By doing so, it evokes emotion therefore the reader feels shame and empathy. Furthermore, by using second person narration it allows the the tone to be more obvious and acknowledged by the reader, “And so you needn’t let that slightly funny feeling you have from time to time about exploitation, oppression, domination develop into full-fledged unease, discomfort; you could ruin your holiday”

As Stated by the author of How to Read Literature Like a Professor For Kids, by Thomas Foster, authors use certain varieties of weather conditions in order to set a mood in the story that’s relevant to the scenario present.

One example of weather being used in the movie clip from Toy Story is rain. The rain didn't start until Sid was just about the release a rocket outside with Buzz attached, which
