Brainard And Cristobal Alvarez: A Literary Analysis

91 Words1 Page
The most remarkable, effective, and engaging literary device used is imagery. The author describes situations and explains in detail or elaborates on the situation. “Since the Japanese killed his mother and four brothers and sisters, he started eating mud” (144). Cristobal Alvarez was the son of Pilar Cuneta-Alvarez and the brother of 4 siblings. Brainard shows how badly the Japanese traumatized him by describing his behavior; “... the Virgins, who took care of Cris, had grand attacks over those mud-eating episodes” (144). Cris ate mud after hearing of his relatives’ deaths.
