On Young Goodman Brown’s journey to the forest, he was confronted by many things that resembled darkness, “He had taken a dreary road, darkened by all the gloomiest trees of the forest, which barely stood aside to let the narrow path creep through, and closed immediately behind. It was all as lonely as could be; and there is this peculiarity in such a solitude, that the traveller knows not who may be concealed by the innumerable trunks and the thick boughs overheard; so that, with lonely footsteps, he may yet be passing through an unseen multitude” (Hawthorne 2). The author, Nathaniel Hawthorne, uses a lot of dark diction, almost foreshadowing something to happen. Hawthorne uses words like ‘dreary’, ‘darkened’, ‘gloomiest’, ‘creep’, ‘lonely’, etc. These words set up the tone of the story which is often known as dark or evil.
It is also in december so it 's cold outside and very very dark. The only thing to see outside is the moon and the branches that cross it 's path.

I’m getting kind of freaked out.” I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into, but whatever it was, it probably wasn’t the best idea yet. The trail eventually stopped. It was about 8:00 now since the group was walking so slow. There was a little area of dirt and no more trail to walk on. The wind stopped blowing out of nowhere.
Soon he crying so hard that he could barely get his breath. He could not think; he could barely see. He had to slow down, and for the first time on the long journey, he began to lag behind the group. Stumbling about blindly, he did not notice the group drawing farther and farther ahead of him” (P.53). This quote show that not only that Salva stubbed his toe and made his toenail fall off but also the first time we see him in tears from agony and lagging behind from the group by his discouragement and his agony.
The valley of the ashes -- the area between the West and East Egg -- represents absolute poverty and hopelessness. Fitzgerald first introduces “The desolate area of land” (35) in chapter two, where “ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and...translucent effort of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air. (35)” Unlike the extravagant West and East egg, the valley of the ashes presents a dark tone to the novel. All the events that occur in the valley of the ashes appears to be morally unsettling because of the dark and grey connotation. The colour grey -- the colour for dreariness -- describes this valley, a place of no hope and future.
Displayed by the line, “but he stumbled onto, into the bush.” His blindness is a conflict as he is finding it difficult to do normal tasks, from walking to carving which was shown in Pt 1, line 120. The second conflict is an internal conflict, person vs self, Nanabush’s obsession with the juggler. Displayed in the line, “He couldn’t help but think of the juggler,
Disarm Throughout the journey Dante has had to endure many tasks and stories. Dante is mentally and physically getting weak from his expeditions, when talking to Francesca he faints, “Swooning as in death, I fell like a dying body”(Inferno, 43 127). Dante is not strong enough handle the tasks like he did in the beginning; he was strong enough to walk past three beast but now faints over the sin of pity. Who was Dante before this, the individual that we call Dante seemed to have schizophrenia or bipolar disorder… my reasoning is that the writings in this book are extremely deranged and constantly leaving the reader bewildered and empty not feeling that he put his heart and soul into his words, In other parts he seems to
Dookie was then greeted by the Headless Rider. Dookie stood there motionless while his heart sunk and his feet turned cold. The Rider threw his chain at him knowing he had him in his hands. His thick, cold chain pierced Dookie 's leg causing him to wince in pain. Once Dookie finally understood what was happening, he yanked the chains off himself and made a run for it.
The short story, “To Build a Fire’ by Jack London is a devastating tale of a man who makes the foolish decision to go off the Yukon’s main trail. The story starts off saying “Day had broken cold and gray”(First Paragraph), as the man further travels off the path he gets into extremely cold temperatures, “The Yukon lay a mile wide and hidden under three feet of ice. On top of this ice were as many feet of snow”(Second Paragraph). This man, this exceptionally foolish man who has never had a winter still continues to walk further upon the trail. However, this man was foolish but he was also simple, he looked at things in simplicity, he realized even though it was 50 degrees below freezing that the frost bite could be avoidable with mitten, hats,
In addition, it was obvious the weather would only grow worse from the grey clouds that hung above my head. The queue had become shorter and so had my breaths as I watched the roller coaster loop around the track. My body was physically churning now as the group of people who stood before me stepped onto the ride, I knew that soon enough it would be my turn. I stood there like an emotional wreck, my heart pounding and knees weak from shaking. I delivered another quick glance to see if I could propose an escape route, although I knew it was too late.
Zeus is very tall and strong, but he ,is always very nice. As they walked along a bad storm came thunder, lightning and even very bad rain . This is when Zeus powers came in. He could stop the storm so they could finish their long and nice walk. The trees blew as the leaves fell off, the apple tree seeds feel all on the ground.
We parked on a dirt patch in the middle of a small field, the trees surrounding us on all sides. The darkness was thick around us as we climbed out of the car. Looking up at the blinking beacon in the sky, I knew we had arrived. Recent rumors have been circling that hikers who climbs this hill will be stalked by the Shadow Man, the supposed guardian of Butte Mountain. I had never experienced paranormal activity before, and I figured that ‘the Shadow Man’ was just a hoax.
Jack was falling head first towards the pavement with the only protection coming from his outstretched arms. Time and motion seemed to slow down, but the outcome was inevitable.

The Franks, Van Pels, and Mr. Dussel all lived in harsh conditions. The secret annex was very tight, and congested. It wasn’t very clean or sanitary. On page 281 it states “the rooms are dusty, curtains in rages. “ They didn’t have very many clothes to wear because when they left they could only take whatever they could wear.
