The U-Shaped Structure Above all, the U—shaped structure is so common that it has become an archetype which greatly influences later literary

Unbroken The author wrote this story to inform the reader of the life of Louis Zamperini, while also telling the story in an entertaining way. Hillenbrand demonstrated the main idea throughout the book by using rhetorical devices such as diction, syntax, imagery, and tone. Hillenbrand’s use of these rhetorical devices contribute to the book Unbroken by emphasizing the main character, Louis “Louie” Zamperini’s, life before, during, and after becoming a prisoner of war.

In the beginning, she uses a depressing tone while also including statistics and the death rates throughout World War II.
The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father. The tone and mood enhance the text by adding detail and facts.
In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, the author, uses an array of figurative language in her writing. She uses similes, idioms, and hyperboles in her book to make them interesting and intriguing.

This imagery and using such words as “husky” and “dangerous” make the tone of the passage as well as the novel cautionary and curious; the readers want to know more about this man
Another language device provokes emotion is alliteration. “Sabre stroke, shattered and sundered” which make the poem have a better effect. Rhyme is also an important factor, because it creates the flow of the poem while still add to the meaning. Some examples are shell, well and hell, this is used to help get the idea to the reader. Many language devices also have been used in the second poem.
The similarities and differences: Cultural Settings In novels, cultural and social setting can affect characters and the story in many ways. The social period of a story usually influences characters’ features, social and family roles, as well as sensibilities. In The Kite Runner, the story compiled of a mixture of Western culture and Afghan traditions while in Pride and Prejudice, the author displays the late eighteenth-century Britain and the Regency culture. Both of the novels, Kite Runner and Pride and Prejudice do correspond on certain things despite the differences they have in cultural context. The contradiction of cultural setting between The Kite Runner and Pride and Prejudice can be manifested blatantly in terms of dining.
In the book, Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini the author used literary devices to develop a theme that emphasizes a topic of importance to modern society.
