Anderson used repetition of some words to really make the reader think about them, and their importance to the scene. During Grandfather’s passing, Mattie repeated the word “no” over and over again. Anderson used this simple word to show how Mattie is in denial of Grandfather’s death. Which is one way that people cope with a loss. Mattie seems to be in denial during the first couple moments after he died, but then the realization hits her and she starts thinking about all he has done for her.

In hindsight, the grandmother ultimately succeeded in preserving the cat’s life at the expense of her and her family. In closing, Flannery O’Conner’s “A Good Man Is Hard To Find” written in 1953, has numerous examples of foreshadowing that could even be considered ironic due to the obviousness of the situations this unfortunate family was subjected to. O’Conner is known for her shock factor in her stories as well as the proverbial moment of grace which the grandmother found just before
Within that short passage one can see the presence of personification, allusion and imagery. One could almost visualize a powerful, mysterious smirk appear on Mother Nature's face as she turns away. The novel The Hot Zone, is currently my favorite read. The powerful and provoking writing style of Richard Preston makes me want to dive other works by him. The fact that he can make a non fictional informative story so intriguing and addicting is a large feat.
The Grandmother is a well-dressed and a proper southern lady. She is also the center of action in the short story, "A Good Man Is Hard to Find". The grandmother seems very suspicious at first, and thinks her son Bailey will be forever small and has to abide by her rules. In her eyes she is never been wrong but knows it all. When we become up-close and personal with the grandmother we see that she's this bad person, which she appears to be old-fashioned, manipulative, and self-serving as a whole.
If Grandpa were to be doubting his life expectancy, he would have this dilemma in the colder months. This means that it was the summer’s warm embrace that made him feel youthful and exuberant. Using the following quote Ray Bradbury does a great job at showing that Grandpa only feels young and full of life during the summer months. “This [dandelion wine] carried to every miserable room upstairs-and-down would be … the medication of another time.” (Bradbury 15) Perhaps the most paramount elements of this quote are that this takes place during the first few days of summer, it is the first time Grandpa has made dandelion wine this summer, and the fact that dandelion wine is the embodiment of summer. Knowing all of this, we can assume that every room was “miserable” and lifeless for the winter months until the house was introduced to the symbol of Grandpa’s summer, and thus youth.
Per Persson (n.d., 64) asserts that the range of view or eye line matching shots play an influential role in placing the spectator in the character’s position. This allows one to see through and identify the object of that character’s gaze, prompting the viewer to infer about character psychology (Persson n.d., 64). The manipulation of when and what a character sees, holds the power of showing audiences the emotions and motives of a particular character. Besides assisting the construction of a character’s personality, POV editing builds a spatial relationship between shots. This understanding of spatial bonding is crucial as it plays an important function in narratives, such as telling how close a murderer is to his victim.
He struggles with this trauma differently than most children because independent religious choices are not common at this young age. His lack of religion also creates his internal struggle with life and death.
