She tries to cite facts of her experience as a witness when she was in a French bread shop and a man walked in the shop and the owner of the shop gives the man a cup of coffee and bread from leftovers and walks away without a word. Then the author uses the same rhetorical element Logos of asking herself “what compels this woman to feed this man? Pity? Care? Compassion?
The same happens when Robert asks the narrator to draw the cathedral. The narrator wasn’t expecting that because he knows Robert can’t physically see. While drawing, the narrator says, “The blind man felt around over the paper. He moved the tips of the fingers over the paper… Doing fine, the blind man said” (13). Robert later makes the narrator feel over the paper and the narrator describes it like “nothing else in my life up to now”() Robert shows both his creative communication skills and him being different than the stereotypical blind
The authors used a didactic and straightforward tone. Levitt and Dubner were spending a majority of the book explaining things to readers, like politics and the economy, and most of the explaining was done is a forthright way. They kept it simple and straight to the point, making it easy to understand unfamiliar things. The authors also used a easygoing, casual tone. This helped tone made the book easy to read, because it seemed like a friend was telling you a story, instead of a professor giving a lecture.
Charles Dickens on the other hand, periodically writes sentences that seemingly never end, as seen in his work time and time again. The voice of a writer is what separates one from another, allowing for an author to carve their own niche into the world of writing with a style they can claim as their own. As previously described, tone is a literary device that puts into perspective the feelings an author has regarding a specific subject or audience, such as Shakespeare’s intended irony present in Antony’s speech. The voices of a writer however, are often mistaken for intentional when they are no more than the uncontrollable tendencies of the author, syntax and all. Once a person is able to distinguish
“The Leap”, written by Louise Erdrich, is a story about the narrator being brought back in time by the setting around her, she retells her mother’s past, and the sacrifices her mother went through for her daughter. Anna’s, the mother’s, tale was retold by the daughter and uncovered something great within the build-up of suspense. This story has a unique plot line, an amazing theme, a shocking climax, and conflicts within it. The storyline is one of the element that keeps the story moving. The story starts off with the daughter sewing in her room, and she smells the smoke from downstairs, she has a flashback to her mother’s past.
In other words, Donne uses rich imagery to add tangibility to his piece and aide the reader in accurately picturing what’s being discussed. Using imagery in a poem furthers the idea and message of the piece and definitely proves effective in ‘The Broken Heart’. In an attempt to display how broken the narrator’s heart is, Donne states: “And now, as broken glasses show / A hundred lesser faces, so” (Donne 29-30). When reading that, many people relate the image in their mind to one that could be seen in a Hall of Mirrors when thousands of warped faces stare back, which leaves one question in the reader’s minds: What could metaphorically break a heart so violently that it reflects the same image as seen in a Hall of Mirrors? John Donne’s specialty may be imagery, but imagery can easily be paired with
“What is lituare but the expression of moods by the vehicle of symbol and incident?” William Butler Yeats once stated. The mood of a person or character can be told in multiple ways from movements, actions or things going on around the characters. Mood is in every story and every person. In the short story “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W Jacobs, the author uses dialogue and descriptive adjectives to develop the mood and tone of the story and characters. Dialogue can be used to show the tone of a character.
Supporting this tone are the many clear, descriptive symbols present such as “the old lock, aluminum frozen by corrosion” and the description of his skull “a white face, both frightening and soothing that wanted to shield from tears”. The tone is altered towards the end once Richard starts crying and majority of his kids are accepting to them separating. Less ominous, the tone is more sympathetic and reassuring. The vocabulary choice aides the understanding of the Maples internal conflicts that their marriage is experiencing and that they have to face while trying to come to an agreement, without causing a confusion to their family. Also the languages, mainly gloomy and depressing contribute greatly.
Weaving words together by collecting the most colorful, strong, deep and meaningful dictions are talented effort poet can do. In Elizabeth Barrett Browning 's " How do I Love Thee?" and Ben Jonson 's " On My First Son" the difference and similarities of tone and speaker usage will be tackled, and the way a poet can use tone and speaker to stimulate a rich affiliation of language, subject and feeling. Speaker is the person , not necessary the author, who is the voice of a poem. The speaker of "How do I Love Thee?"
Yet, “…another language…” has been refered to in a line of the poem, an older and more creative language just like the bible uses and shakespeare did, which comes back to remind readers that this person is rather naïve in his presentation. A certain type of language is employed to convey Duffy’s messages throughout Education for Leisure such as “Shakespeare. It was in another language…”, we can derive from symblism that this person’s school work was tricky and this line basically means it was like a metaphorical experience of dying for this evil intended, murderous young person. Symbolism of death arises in the readers mind as “…another language…” is read out. Repetition does have quite an effect on the readers as it reveals the message that Duffy desired to pass on, for example the letter “I” (myself), has been repeated twice in each stanza which reveals the poems significance and allows readers to discover the characters boasty and show-off-like personality which degrades the adolecent social group that the character is from and also makes them seem immature which is also evident where the character’s voice seems to also contain hues here and there of an wounded child; “I have had enough of being ignored”.
