She carefully sneaks her cat into the car, and later down the road the cat sneaks out, jumps on the drivers face, and causes them to have a wreck. As seen in the article “A Good Man is Hard To Find” it states “The grandmother never turns her critical eye on herself to inspect her own hypocrisy, dishonesty, and selfishness. For example, the conscience the grandmother invokes at the beginning of the story is conveniently silent when she sneaks Pitty Sing (the
In the essay Holland uses this quote “sleep, for a cat, is a worthy occupation in itself.”(Holland). In this quote from the essay Holland describes the human as a cat. Since cats have the reputation for being aloof it show that Americans can relate to a cat at the end of the day for the reason of not having that benefit of getting a nap throughout a busy and packed
Also, the fog is illustrated “on silent haunches” which is another characteristic of cats. It could also imply personification since people can also crouch down. Instead of the fog drifting around, it is shown as staying in one area before moving on. Finally, the connotation for the word ‘cat’ itself implies a mischievous, mysterious creature; the fog fits the mysterious category.
London engages the reader through the use of literary devices, combining setting, total omniscience point of view, symbolism, and foreshadowing. By presenting the setting to the readers, London begins to show them that the tone is very unhappy and fearful. Like setting, the narrator presents the somber tone of the story through the total omniscience point of view. Additionally, various symbols are employed throughout the story to help support the narrator’s dark tone. Finally, the usage of foreshadowing from the start to the finish of the story helps to maintain the fearful and dark tone.

However just as these images are representative of these tones, Frost seems to also endorse a feeling of likeness in his fleeing of the city into the silent dimness of the adjacent countryside. The “luminary clock” symbolizes time, whether it be man made or natural. This clock seen by the author at “an unearthly height,” can be understood as the shining moon or literally just a clock located in a very high tower in the city.

The author also associates the sea’s spitting with that of a “tame cat turned savage” as if nature’s rage is fated to the people on the island. Heaney uses first person pronouns such as “we” and by that, he speaks forth representing the people on the island. Furthermore, Heaney’s generalization on behalf of the people living on the island creates a faded scent of unity and connection between the people despite its insignificance in front of nature. Moreover, the usage of such pronouns and the addition of second person engages the reader in the text as if the reader is living through the three stages of the storm: earth, air, and water. Only via the three basic elements of nature and using character pronouns, Heaney was able to maintain a well-supported argument that we cannot escape our fears despite how trivial the reasons might
Descriptive language uses images that appeal to the reader’s senses, helping the reader to imagine how a subject looks, sounds, smells, tastes, or feels. Some of the examples of descriptive language include tone, irony, mood, imagery, alliteration, onomatopoeia, allusion and satire.
