While this line is also sarcastic, Klosterman is able to enhance the humor of the line with profanity. In Klosterman’s Harry Potter essay, he states, “I honestly don’t give a shit if my assumption is true or false” (“Death by Harry Potter”). Klosterman casually throws around words most professional writers avoid because it fits his style of humor and connects him with readers. Since Klosterman’s essays are already more informal due to his biting sarcasm and hyperbole, his use of curse words only adds to his growing bond with the audience. Modern society has built crass language into our basic vocabulary; Klosterman’s use of profanity presents him as an average person to his audience in order to connect with them.
When analyzed, these elements provide yet another layer of meaning to any piece of writing. In order to properly describe characters, authors most commonly use both physical traits and descriptions of personality. However, readers often leave their understanding of characters at the simple physical descriptions provided, “...his sunken haggard eyes,” being the only characteristic they attribute to the person whose story they are following (61). Despite the fact that physical traits do not directly affect personality, McCarthy did a brilliant job of relating the two. By using words such as sunken and haggard, the author brings to mind an entire way of life, one that involves little food and poor conditions.
A story of selflessness with an ironic ending, “The Gift of the Magi” by O. Henry has a distinct style. O. Henry’s style techniques including, diction and syntax, of this story are noticeable from the first sentence to the last. Narrated as though the story is being told aloud, this story is strung together with short incomplete sentences. O. Henry throws grammar rules out the window, using a lot of sentences that depend on other sentences to make sense.

The story that had the most suspense was “The Sniper” because the author used short, choppy sentences, left cliffhangers at the end of paragraphs, and had a plot twist at the end of the story. Liam O’Flaherty’s use of short, choppy sentences makes it suspenseful because they don’t give you a lot of information. The lack of information leads you to keep reading so you can find out what happens next. If the sentences are drawn out, you don’t get a suspenseful feeling since everything is there in one sentence. Leaving cliffhangers at the ends of paragraphs creates suspense because you don’t know what will happen next A good example of this is when the story says,”The flash might might be seen in the darkness, and there were enemies watching.
As the Boov say, “many fingers make up a hand.” Just like this expression, Many components make up effective humor. Adam Rex, the author of the book Smek for President, shows us a perfect example of how not to use them. The tools of humor, such as tone, diction, imagery and more are present, but they don’t make you laugh. Adam Rex, as a “funny author,” leaves much to be desired in his writing. Throughout the book, a certain alien tone is set.
The style of which the story is being written is both descriptive and quite colorful, for example, “Um-hmm!... Ain’t you got nobody home to tell you to wash your face?”(Hughes pg.1) Hughes also introduces some specific languages and styles of literary devices such as repetition, hyperboles, and interjection. He also uses an exaggeration when trying to make a point, for example, “She said, ‘You a lie!’”( Hughes pg.1 ). You can’t actually be a lie so this was very exaggerated and emphasized. Also, he appeals to the reader 's senses with his very simplicit style of writing.

The article “Shitty First Drafts” by Anne Lamott is a simple article discussing how most well-written essays must come from a “shitty first draft.” Lamott simple yet effective organization, casual use of language, and style along with humor sells her concept that the scattered first draft does not have to be perfect and is necessary to create a well-written essay. In the article, Lamott uses simple organization. She begins the article with a brief introduction of the concept that few people can just sit down and write a perfect, beautiful essay or book on the spot.

Two seemingly unalike books like Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury and Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass written by himself provide a great example of comparing the two different themes and even finding common ones between them.
