On page three the dad says ”That sun. He could feel it on his neck, still, like a hot paw”. Bradbury uses this as a way to show the dad 's fear of the nursery in the growing darkness of the room. Another simile Ray Bradbury uses in The Veldt is when the children return from the Plastic Carnival. “Wendy and Peter were coming in the front door, cheeks like peppermint candy, I was like bright blue Agate marbles, a smell of ozone on their jumpers from their trip in the helicopter.” He uses this to develop the innocence of the children on the outside, to later show the darkness growing in the children.
In the Poem “Oranges” by Gary Soto the theme of the piece is, to sacrifice for others in the name of love is worth everything you have. the theme of the story, though, is improved upon by literary devices. The first literary device present in the poem is Simile. The simile helps compare the items in the story that the main character talks about or saw while in the Drugstore with his girl on the date. While going through the store he comes across candies that were “tiered like bleachers”( Soto, 26), there were so many choices and his girl picked out the chocolate on one of the shelves, although what she picked out was more expensive than he thought and couldn’t afford it.

In The Outsiders, S.E Hinton presents the idea that teenagers can break through stereotypes if they look at life through another perspective; as shown in the book when Ponyboy starts to talk to Cherry and Randy and realizes the stereotypes about them are false.

At the end of the novel Mr. Tate, the sheriff, says, “to my way of thinkin’, Mr. Finch, taking the man who’s done you and this town a great service an’ dragging draggin’ him with his shy ways into the limelight--to me, that’s a sin.” Scout, connecting this to Atticus’ earlier statement, exclaims, “well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?”(317,318) Scout realizes that Atticus refers to Arthur as a “mockingbird” because of his kind deeds and innocent
He sits down beside Cherry and says, “This might cool you off.” Cherry gives him a look and throws the Coke in his face, “This might cool you off, Greaser.

“It only depends if you agree in cooperating with the Cryogenic Apparatus.

According to you, of course, you believe that my science is just entertainment to me, myself and I. Shall I have your permission to do so?” He laughed at his own joke, casually tossing the Kleenex behind him. “When I get out of here, I will make sure that the authorities tear this place apart, you little piece of -” I stopped suddenly as the guard’s gun came dangerously close to my right eye.
