Figurative Language In The Woods Runner

269 Words2 Pages

My claim is that the Woods Runner paints a better picture in our minds if it uses figurative language opposed to not using figurative language. Without figurative language the picture you get from the story won't be as detailed. To begin one point of the story where figurative language is important is on page 21,” willing it to not be what was coming into his mind like a dark snake a slithering horror.” I really think this paints a wonderful picture of what he is thinking about. Another example would be when it says on page 21,” it would be like Running Blind.” This helps illustrate how difficult it is running through the woods at night. lastly another simile that helps the story is when he says,” and then the whole world blew up.” pg 51.
