This quote shows that Melinda has no friends and is hated by many people, who she once called her best friends. It also shows how even her parents aren’t happy. Laurie Halse Anderson uses imagery by mentioning the thorn bushes and comparing herself to a hair ball. The use of imagery allows the readers to feel sympathy towards Melinda. For example, the simile the author uses is “a school that gags on me like I’m a hairball.”
Within the segment, the narrator observes that "a large yellow moon was shining in" when referring to the nursery that she previously "rushed" into. The emphasis on the moon gives implications of the nursey being a gravitational vaccumm to her, which suggests her spirituality and future being as bleak as the dimmly lit room she is standing in.

The author notes that she “... did not notice my father’s silence…,” and “... did not notice my mother’s absence…” Then, later on that night, we hear Lizabeth’s mother and father have a conversation in another room whilst laying down on her (and her brother’s) makeshift bed. After hearing her father woes, her father started crying “loudly and painfully, and cried helplessly and hopelessly into the dark night.” (Marigolds 42) This event combined with her mother’s absence from her life and the previous affair from earlier that day made Lizabeth feel extremely alone and, with Joey struggling to catch up, floored it to Miss Lottie’s house.
Minutes before her last breaths Gerry, her brother, signals them in the Stardust; so the two share their last few words before they lose signal. Now she must come to her fate, she is heaved into space, and she turns into an ugly shapeless figure. And Pilot Barton can only feel helpless, because there is nothing he can do for this 18-year-old-girl that just wanted to see her brother, and her words will run through his head haunting him for the rest of his life. One point the author makes that proves reality is ultimately favored is that the pilot has a very hard time killing a teenage girl because if it would have been a man he would have no problem but he has to kill the girl no matter the circumstances. The author says in the story "I 'm sorry."

On the other hand, The Storm’s narration is that of 3rd person omniscient. The reader is not able to get into the thoughts and feelings of Calixta. Although they are there when Calixta is worried about her husband and child being stuck in the storm and when she is being pleasured by Alcée, they do not feel those emotions with her “She was a revelation in that dim, mysterious chamber; as white as the couch she lay upon” (Chopin 2). Giving the reader the ability to experience Ellen’s emotion versus just having the reader there while Calixta is with her lover is what makes the narration of The Jilting of Granny Weatherall create such a believable

The family also probably felt empty themselves as they start to lose their lives one by one realizing what was actually happening.
Sign for analysis: Fahrenheit 451 In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, in the midst of a tale of book-burning and lost knowledge, a large looming object gains a peculiar amount of mention: the moon. From the very beginning, imagery has been introduced, when Montag “did not wish to open the curtains and open the french windows, for he did not want the moon to come in the room” (Bradbury 10). After observing Clarisse’s family though his window, Montag “moved back to his own house, left the window wide, checked Mildred, tucked the covers about her carefully, and then lay down with the moonlight on his cheek-bones and on the frowning ridges in his brow, with the moonlight distilled in each eye to form a silver cataract there” (Bradbury 15).

Another thing that led the narrator close to insanity was basically being isolated in the house. She spoke many times about wanting to see cousin Henry and Julia but John said he would only let her see them when she gets well and anytime before that he would rather "put fireworks in her pillowcase" than let her see those "stimulating people." After awhile she thought it was "discouraging not to have any advice and companionship." John spent most of his time in town because of serious cases and Jennie let her be alone when ever she wanted to be. When she was alone she said she would always cry I 've nothing and started to imagine things is the wallpaper.
