Wiesel uses a lot of very detailed descriptions and expresses his feelings in a way that we easily start to trust him. He knows that this is one of the most terrible periods in the history and he tries “to help prevent history from repeating itself” (Wiesel VII). “He does not want his past to become [the children’s] future” and that is why he writes his book to be seen by the people who do not realize how poorly people were treated (Wiesel XV). These two quotes from Night show that the holocaust shouldn’t be repeated. The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses.

The works published after In Dubious Battle (1936) cemented Steinbeck’s reputation and are the most memorable contributions he made to American letters. Steinbeck’s novel, Of Mice and Men (1937) , remains for many readers John Steinbeck 's most memorable work. Steinbeck experimented with the form of this story, which he described as a “playable novel,” a novel that could be read as a play and even staged without making changes to the narrative. This novel tells the story of George Milton and Lennie Small, two displaced migrant ranch workers, who move from place to place in California in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in the United States. The American author John Steinbeck wrote a collection of short stories
She explains that when she was younger her father “was the last great talker” (Boyden, 34) on the reserve and would use “words forming invisible nets that he cast over us” (35). Boyden employs this metaphor to describe the captivating nature of Niska’s father and how each story ensnared it’s listener. This metaphor also establishes the motif of words portrayed as weapons which recurs throughout the novel as weapons are symbols of power. Niska continues that sometimes hunting was grim and they would struggle to survive long winters, so “his stories were all that we had to keep us alive” (35). Although they did not have food to fill them, the stories maintained morale, and brought them close together to increase body heat, ultimately saving them many times.
Tom begins to change once he witnesses it. His anxiety and guilt about Muff Potter’s fate are clear in the scenes he tries to get Huck to reconsider their vow to secrecy. The decision he finally makes (the decision to tell the courtroom about how the murder really went) is independent by every implication, however. Tom decides to follow his conscience despite his devotion to his loyalty to Huck, his superstition, and his own personal safety. Before the courtroom, Muff Potter tells Tom and Huck “You’ve been mighty good to me boys-better’n anybody else in this town.
The author also writes,“What’s that noise, make it stop.” (paragraph 16). This example portrays situational irony, for when the narrator's guilt gets to the narrator, it is leading up to suspense and the confession of the murder. Poe uses this to help express the true feelings and intentions of the narrator when he talks about killing the old man and has the old man's heart drive him to confession. Poe also uses different types of irony which helps plays a very important role in The Cask of Amontillado as well.
Evidently, Shakespeare argues that it is important to make decisions based on logical reasoning rather than let ourselves be influenced by strong emotions because it will allow us to truly understand the consequences, protect our loved ones, and maintain autonomy over our own lives. Making decisions when we are in a sound state of mind forces us to consider all the potential consequences of our actions. For example, when Romeo finds out that he has been banished from Verona for killing Tybalt, he is very distraught. “In what vile part of this anatomy / Doth my name lodge? tell me, that I may sack / The hateful mansion.

The author, Mary Shelley employs figurative language in this excerpt of Frankenstein to exaggerate the journey of Victor coming to Geneva. Shelley conveys the natural disasters occurred through a foreboding tone. This passage starts out by talking about a storm that appeared as Victor strolls along the town. Shelley uses personification to give the storm an unpredictable nature by describing lightning "playing on the summit of Mont Blanc" to draw the attention of how dangerous the storm looks.

In the book, Frankenstein Mary Shelley uses three devices to make the reader feel and understand what is going on. They are imagery,tone,and the theme she shows these things on pages 90-91 when she is having the creature explain what happened when he ran out of Frankenstein’s house.

The passage on pages 43-44 in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein describe the events that occurred as Dr. Frankenstein brought his monster to life. She effectively uses her language and imagery to develop her tone, very dark and anguished. Her diction also helps to enforce the overall theme of the passage: don’t mess with the natural order of things.
