In the first paragraph of the “Death, the Compassionate Narrator” section, the parenthesis by means of apposition is used quite well for the descriptions Liesel’s Papa and Mama. Yet, the fusion of both long descriptions together creates a run-on sentences that leaves the reader
In the short story “The Most Dangerous Game,” the author, Richard Connell uses the wonders of figurative language to spice things up in many ways throughout the story. Almost every page had something lying within itself, hidden behind metaphors similes, personification, and the list goes on. Some examples of how Richard Connell uses figurative language were clearly displayed on page 62: “Didn’t you notice that the crew’s nerves were a bit jumpy today?” This page also began to reveal the main feeling/emotion of the story(eerie/suspicious) came to be-which was set off by the example I used above. In this scene, the author uses very descriptive words and/or adjectives in his choice(s) of figurative language when he writes, “There was no breeze.The
As the title very much suggests, it’s quite blurry as to who you can trust. In the average novel, the narrator is to be 100% trusted. This story is an exception; trustworthiness adds quite an interesting twist to the plot. Taking into account all the crazy things that have happened to her physically and mentally, we can begin to get an idea of how much of what Cadence says is true. Her hallucinations of the Liars, the accident causing her to develop selective amnesia, and her unstable personality all allow us to conclude that Cadence Sinclair Eastman is an unreliable
Concealing the Truth People have countless ways to express how they are feeling. One possibility can be writing a story to hide the ugly truth. One very interesting short story was written named How to talk to a hunter by Pam Houston. When reading the story we understand that it’s about a couple with both individuals having problems. However, we don’t get names throughout the story, besides pronouns that are in second person.
She was interested in learning and reading which helped her improve her knowledge. Liesel definitely had both an ugly and beautiful side which contributed to her lifestyle. Many characters in the movie The Book Thief have both traits of ugliness and beauty. We see that these traits can sometimes go to a high extent from their actions and what they do. Characters like Hans, Max, and Liesel are examples of these they all do something to solidify their ugliness and beauty.
Most irony is used intentionally, but in some cases it can be used unintentionally. Irony is used to illustrate a point which is better than just plainly saying something.The Crucible contains several examples of dramatic, verbal, and situational irony. Dramatic irony is a situation of shock or drama in a story. This irony is most understood and known by the audience/person reading it, but is not yet understood by the characters in the story or play. In Act 1 Reverend Hale visits the Proctors home in Salem.
The syntax in the book is disordered in part to replicate dialogue and the way people in the book, brought up mostly as slaves, would speak. Some sentences are not full sentences, but fragments to show the way people might have told this story orally rather than in writing. Also, the confused syntax expresses the confusion and disorderly nature of the characters
It is often said that “the pen is mightier than the sword.” This may be the case because words form an avenue of expression and grant people a certain kind of power. Many authors of the 1700s seemed to write with this philosophy to gain validation or justice for causes they supported as underdogs in society. As frequently happens, there are exceptions to the rule in which authors actually seem to dig deeper holes for themselves. Jonathan Swift and Lady Mary Wortley Montagu are two underdogs who appeared to use the pen as a valuable weapon, while Mary Leapor seems to have used the pen as a weapon against herself only. Jonathan Swift uses “A Modest Proposal” to seek validation as well as justice for his cause.
I also like how Squeaky understands her brothers problems and stands out for him in the story because she states “And I’ve got an roomful of ribbons and medals and awards. But what has Raymond got to call his own?”. In these lines of the story, we can clearly
In Pride, by Dagoberto Gilb, readers are given both hidden and concrete examples of what pride is and people who have experienced grave amounts of it at once. Grown men are brought to tears with the pride described by Gilb, but at the same time, the feeling can be so graceful and devout through metaphors. Through comprehension, rhetorical devices, and the tone and structure of Gilb’s essay, we can begin to understand the exact meaning the word “Pride” and what the it’s all
