The way that Michihiko explains his emotions while going through the days - not knowing how many people were going to survive, or if any of them would survive - makes it rather easy for the reader to connect to the story emotionally. Michihiko explains his feelings and perceptions in a way that is easy for the reader to understand, and he also describes the setting of his journals very well. Dr. Hachiya's descriptive settings give the reader an image of post-bomb Hiroshima that was only available to the citizens of Hiroshima. The way that Hachiya's descriptions include every small detail of the scenes around him, and of the images that flash through his mind, really helps to give the reader a sense of the destruction and confusion that the citizens of Hiroshima felt after the bomb was dropped.

Primarily, the whole of the story harmonizes with the tone of dark humour or melancholy comedy. The author uses sarcasm and sardonicism to mock a concept such as equality, which is realistically a very serious concept.

How powerful is a single story? At Ted Global 2009, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian novelist, expresses her view of single stories and the ways in which they are used to create stereotypes and divides us as a people. Adichie’s talk, “The Danger of a Single Story”, stimulates careful consideration to what happens when people and situations are reduced to a single narrative. She believes single stories are highly correlated with the power structures of the world and have the ability to strip people of their humanity. In my rhetorical analysis essay, I will detail how Adichie’s talk is effective in persuading her audience because of the Cause & Effect Analysis, Exemplification, and Metadiscourse rhetorical strategies.
Emotional imagery played a prominent role in the novel "A Thousand Splendid Suns" in a variety of different ways. This allows Hosseini to construct a more affectionate connection with his readers and connect more genuinely with their feelings. This is showcased in several parts of the novel, specifically on the occasion where Nana committed suicide and Mariam felt as if she has no one to go when she was in need of consoling. The guilt that Mariam felt is easily expressed through the novel and can be detected by the reader. A similar case can be assumed for the death of Laila’s family after her house was bombed.
