James Hurst uses suspense, characterization, and imagery in the “Scarlet Ibis” to convey that pride is a wonderful/terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines life and death. The author uses suspense to convey the message that the reader is thinking about what will happen to doodle. This is seen when doodle said “brother brother don’t leave me” (441). This example states that doodle does not like being alone. This helps convey the theme by stating that doodle has been the center of attention since he was born so he is used to everybody being around him and making him feel loved by his parents.
In “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, the narrator introduces his brother, Doodle, and his multiple health obstacles. Weak immediately from birth, Doodle was given a slim survival rate. After realizing Doodle would make it, the narrator was content on making Doodle as normal as possible. The narrator’s pride was a major impact on Doodle’s health, eventually leading him to his untimely

Upon entering the world of Harry Potter, readers are enlightened about a “boy who lived,” yet as the books continue it becomes evident that Harry Potter only survives with the help of allies and friendships. Harry relies on his strong friendships, without them he wouldn’t survive. One solid friendship, in particular is Ron Weasley, who has had Harry’s back since day one on the Hogwarts express. Ron quickly becomes the greatest friend Harry would ever need, giving Harry a family and someone to lean on. By means of Harry’s fame, Ron may be hidden in Harry’s shadow, described as an underdog or a sidekick, but despite this, Ron Weasley displays a great sense of devotion towards, not only Harry but everyone he cares about.
The son claims that his father “could drop it [the bunt] like a seed,” which implies that the father’s sacrifice has been gingerly placed in order to grow strong one day (8). This simile demonstrates the care with which the father tries to teach the son how to bunt. The only other simile compares the son’s sign to his father, the poem itself, to “a hand brushed across the bill of a cap” (21). Once again this figurative comparison connotes a tender love and mutual respect between the father and son, especially considering that this simile compares the poem to the baseball equivalent of a salute. Overall, through the use of symbols and figurative comparisons, the poem conveys the tender admiration shared between the father and son, despite their lack of
A person can be very depressing, arrogant, or even abusive but the person in love will see past it hence the term blind. According to the text, “ Young Aubigny’s rule was a strict one, too, and under it his negroes had forgotten how to be gay…” (Chopin Pg 2). Later in the story it states “ Armand is the proudest father...he hasn’t punished one of them since the baby was born...he only laughed” (Chopin Pg 2). This proves the theme is true as it demonstrates it with Armand and Desiree’s love to be so powerful yet so blind (LitCharts Themes Pg

At first, Jack presents Ernest as his brother when he says, “ ...to get up to town I have always pretended to have a younger brother of the name of Ernest, who lives in the Albany, and gets into the most dreadful scrapes.” (Wilde, pg. 1703). Jack creates a brother for himself as a result of being an orphan and not being able to have someone always there for him or him there for them.

The story is about a boy that has a younger brother with cancer, while his parents are busy working or taking care of their younger brother they fail to see the problems and daily challenges that the older brother is facing. The story’s has unique characters that bring life to the story.
