Yet, images don’t have to be descriptive; they can be concepts.” Author’s use descriptive language to create a picture in the reader 's mind.

In “The Treasure of Lemon Brown,” the author uses figurative language to develop the mood of the passage and characters. In the story, the author describes the characters using personification by saying “Lemon Brown squeezed Greg’s hand into his own gnarled fist.” This helps the reader show that Lemon Brown is anxious because he is squeezing Greg’s hand

The use of words that Esquivel uses gives us a better understanding of the strategies being used by the author, and what she is trying to say by using those words.There are many other strategies that Esquivel uses, but exaggeration and imagery have a huge role in the book, and not only in the passage where she describes Nacha, but in others where the food is involved.

As I was reading Melissa Duffy’s “Inspiration, and Craig Vetter’s “Bonehead Writing,” I found myself connecting with Vetter’s paper more than Duffy’s. I found that the presentation in “Bonehead Writing” to capture my attention, and that Vetter’s feelings about writing was similar to my opinion on writing. Through his wording and humor, I think Craig Vetter wrote the best essay. I find that the wording and presentation of an article or essay influences my opinion of the writer, and it affects how I receive the idea they are trying to present to me.

Another example of Gladwell using simile to help the reader understand ideas central to explanations of the theme is his description of two food tasters. He describes two food tasters that have the ability to determine what ingredients have been added or omitted from a recipe just by tasting the food. He then describes how they are able to use their subconscious to make that determination. Gladwell describes eating with them as “like going cello shopping with Yo-Yo-Ma” (Gladwell 178). Gladwell’s use of simile makes the whole situation easier for the reader to understand.

Another criticism that can be made is this paper can be considered as relevant to the current situation. The modern world is not suitable era for leadership with force and strength.
