He crafts his sentences to enthrall his readers into the tale, making it impossible for them to escape the no matter how unsettling the subject matter. A great example of this is, “TRUE—nervous—very, very dreadfully nervous…” (1). Throughout the tale, Poe adds dashes into his sentences to create pauses, that show the detail that the “madman”has gone into for this murder. These dashes are able to hook the reader into the subject.
It made for a good story but if in real life circumstances I wouldn't agree with the act of unwinding. I think the author did a good job with making it realistic but also drama filled. The more you read this story the more you got hooked to it. I would recommend this book to anyone because it makes everyone think about everything. Just the thought of being shipped off to be dismantled scares anyone.
She became his main motivation in achieving all he had and he doesn’t want her to view him and his actions in a negative way. Despite all the unlawful acts he had done in achieving his high status, Gatsby is innocent since compared to other people, his purpose of becoming well-off in life wasn’t driven by selfish and greedy thoughts but instead by the never-ending love he has for Daisy. He is willing to do everything for her. He is blinded by his immense love towards her and that’s what stimulates him to do immoral acts. Greed and selfishness haunts the corrupt but dedication and adoration fuels
Irony takes place in all of Poe’s stories, and it is very easy to notice what the most ironic parts are in all of the texts too. However, “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Masque of the Red Death”, have the most ironic sequences in them. In “The Tell-Tale Heart”, the narrator is so confident that he had thought of everything, that he had the perfect plan, but he hadn’t planned for the guilt that would later haunt him after he killed the old man. He ended up confessing his crime to the police and even tearing up the floorboards where he had stashed the old man’s remains. For example, “I admit the deed!
The reader obtains a clear image of the characters which allows for the reader to be more involved in the novel. Of course, the characters are what construct the story into what it is, without the reader knowing what the characters are like then the story would be nothing but merely boring. In The Grifters, Thompson allowed for the actions of the characters to be more touching or shocking. As the reader learns in the beginning Lilly is nothing but malevolent to absolutely everyone including her own son. Therefore, “her nominal heartlessness” that the reader becomes familiar with, allows for the reader to feel compassion for Roy (Thompson 10).
Her greediness sparked up by the mention of wealth. According to Washington Irving in The Devil and Tom Walker, “Tom might have felt disposed to sell himself to the devil; he was determined not to do so to oblige his wife” (Irving 6). He basically turned down the
The short story “The Devil and Tom Walker” by Washington Irving is a classic dark romantic story. Although the story has many elements in it, symbolism is seen the most. The three main symbols are the Devil is a representation of temptations in life, the forest represents the bad side of life and the trees showing the lives of many men that have done bad. The first symbol is the Devil. The Devil in the story represents temptations.
Gatsby feels that he is allowed to assume her feelings and wishes because his wealth makes him worthy to love her again. He feels entitled to speak on her behalf and make choices that are not his to make, “‘Your wife doesn’t love you,’ said Gatsby. ‘She’s never loved you. She loves me…’She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried.
The narrator believes himself to be very intelligent and clever when he goes into the old man’s room at midnight. Poe’s word choice of “caution” and “how wisely” represents the man’s view of his own sanity. Yet the act he performs and the reasoning behind his murderous intention convinces the reader that the narrator has lost his sanity. He plots and is driven to kill a man after claiming, “ I loved the old man.
And what's more, I love Daisy too. Once in awhile I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time." (pg 140) Although Tom says his heart truly loves Daisy and that he loves her I see this a blunty obvious lie. If he really did love her he would have never cheated on her. Similar to many of the other lies in the story, Tom cared so much about his “power couple”/old money marriage status he had with Daisy that he would rather lie to himself and others about loving her than separating from her.
In sinners in the hands of an angry God Jonathan Edward’s most effectively appeals to the people who have yet to convert to a puritan's by using rhetorical analysis. One of the first metaphors he uses was when he was describing the fire that God holds you over and if provoked (when you sin) he will drop you down to hell. He uses a great analogy when he talks about it because he says”The God that holds you over the pit of hell much as one holds a spider or some loathsome insect over the fire”, and that is a real interpretation of what we are to God in Edward’s eyes. All these metaphors can also be used as imagery too because the author uses such good words and phrases it good that you can imagine what he is saying.
The Shack, written by WM. Paul Young is an extraordinary novel. I admire what Mr. Young has done with this book. The intense characters he has created, the engaging ideas presented and the description of the events are all so surreal. One of the best parts about this book is the theology.
Literature has been around for many ages. There are many different types of literature fro. many different times. The way people write has changed throughout the years.

In both short stories, “The Devil and Tom Walker”by, Washington Irving and “The Minister’s Black Veil”by, Nathaniel Hawthorne religion is used to expose the hypocrisy of Tom Walker who pretends to be Christian and the Puritan townspeople who judge the minister for exposing his secret sin while sinning themselves. Tom Walker decides to make a deal with the devil for financial gain. Once Tom Walker reaches old age he realizes he is going to hell and tries to figure out a way to cheat the devil. He begins going to church obnoxiously praying and judging the churchgoers for how they choose to practice their The “quiet Christians” would be praying modestly to themselves while Tom would be obnoxiously praying trying to one-up them. Irving compares Tom’s newfound Christianity to his job as a loan shark.
“Traded my soul for rock and roll. I made a deal with the devil. Fortune and fame, fire and flames. I made a deal with the devil”. This lyric is a originates from the song “Deal With The Devil” by Winger.
