In “Chocolate War”, Cormier uses interrogative diction and repetitive statements to demonstrate how intimidating Brother Leon is, suggesting that Brother Leon is a very intimidating teacher who likes to tease his students in a not such nice manner.

Is that the answer, Bailey?”” (Cormier 43) By asking question after question, the syntax makes the statement more dramatic, causing Bailey and the class to be intimidated.

W. Jacobs, the White family is introduced to a magical monkey paw. The Paw grants three wishes per user, but is designed to grant the wish by the most tragic means. The Whites are informed of this, but even so, Mr. White uses the Paw to obtain 200 pounds to pay off his mortgage. “...[Mrs. White] asked breathlessly, ‘has anything happened to Herbert?’...‘He was caught in the machinery,’ said the visitor…‘in consideration...[the company] wishes to present you with a certain sum…’ [Mr. White's] dry lips shaped the words, ‘How much?’ ‘Two hundred pounds,’ was the answer.” What motivated Mr. White to wish for money, the story does not say, but the reader wonders why Mr. White wished on a cursed object when he was already familiar with the fact that the outcome could be of the last things he
As an author, Stephen King has developed the skill of alluring writing. Stephen King’s word choice is not common, but eccentric and assists in making a story enticing to read. Alike Stephen King, W.W Jacobs also uses quality word choice and descriptive adjectives for his stories, one of them is “The Monkey’s Paw.” In “The Monkey’s Paw” W.W Jacobs uses word choice and descriptive adjectives to develop the theme. The story, ¨The Monkey's Paw¨ uses descriptive adjectives.

The mood of the story, The Monkey 's Paw, is eerie.

. Jack looked at me, a new interest behind his eyes.” (Ch 20) “Brother Jack” lost the title of brother in the narrator’s mind, symbolizing the narrator losing trust and respect in Brother Jack.

In the end, Piggy and Ralph tell Sam and Eric just that, while they are still unsure about the whole situation, and whether it was really their fault. The actions in Lord of the Flies are all driven by fear and the idea to leave most details out for the sake of others. This comes in the form of idealizing the beast’s appearance and tactics, considering it to be a reality, and finally acting upon superstition. In Lord of the Flies, the boys are so scared of the beast that it directly influences their actions, causing them to take alarming measures to the point where even older readers are appalled by the concept. The book perfectly demonstrates that fear can seriously drive someone to questionable and even foolish

In part one of “The Monkey’ Paw’” the White family is introduced to the monkey’s paw by, family, friend Sergeant Major Morris. Major Morris explains the dire outcome of using the paw. Mrs. White asks if anyone has used the paw before and Major Morris responds with “The first man used his wishes, yes,”...”I don 't know what his first two wishes were, but the third was for death.
