In the novel “Something Wicked This Way Comes” by Ray Bradbury a wise tone is seen every time Charles Halloway addresses the carnival. The author shows this when Charles says “they make you empty promises, you stick out your neck and- wham!” (Bradbury 200). This shows a wise tone because it shows how Charles realizes how the carnival tricks people into giving them their souls by making them false promises about their desires and end up turning people into freaks. The author uses this wise tone to emphasize the fact that Charles was the mentor of the boys, and he knew that there was something evil about the carnival. The author also shows a wise tone when Charles says “the carnival doesn’t care if it stinks by moonlight instead of sun, so long

As he walks through empty streets, Mr. Mead asks the people in his society what they are watching, knowing he won’t get a response, but pauses when he thinks he hears a “murmur of laughter”, lonely for someone who had not been transformed into the same emotionless citizen technology has caused this society to contain.

In the beginning of the novel Holden is back with his parents because he references it and in a way uses pre tense but it seems as though holden is talking as the story is actually happening.
