In the short story “The Most Dangerous Game,” the author, Richard Connell uses the wonders of figurative language to spice things up in many ways throughout the story. Almost every page had something lying within itself, hidden behind metaphors similes, personification, and the list goes on. Some examples of how Richard Connell uses figurative language were clearly displayed on page 62: “Didn’t you notice that the crew’s nerves were a bit jumpy today?” This page also began to reveal the main feeling/emotion of the story(eerie/suspicious) came to be-which was set off by the example I used above. In this scene, the author uses very descriptive words and/or adjectives in his choice(s) of figurative language when he writes, “There was no breeze.The

Carter introduces the audience to his argument not by giving his statement or "mission" immediately but by telling the audience a story of a personal experience that helps the audience sympathize with his point of view. The way Carter describes the beauty of his trip to the Wildlife Refuge and how it was a very personal experience makes the audience feel they are being let in on a personal level to the President's point of view against the drilling in the Refuge. The story of the migration of the porcupine caribou gave the his audience an idea of what the refuge really means and emphasizes how it would all be destroyed if industrialization on the Refuge were to happen. By giving his personal experience first, Carter is able to draw his audience in and let them sympathize with his cause before he actually gives his real argument and calls people to
The author uses Figurative Language in story’s a lot.Many authors use Figurative Language to entertain readers.Like in the poem “Oranges”They had a couple of simile for example the had Tiered like bleachers,and it have Fog hangng like old coats between the trees.it had a few personifications, A few cars hissing fast.And the Imagery is Porch light burned yellow.
As well, figurative language in his speech showed the passion and bravery the astronauts had. “As they prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of god’” (8). His use of personification justifies to all citizens that the journey that turned into a disaster was not their last. It was only the beginning for them. “In his life time the great frontier were the oceans” (7). The symbolism expresses the passion Drake had for traveling on the sea. Which expresses the message to the nation that the seven astronauts passion was to seek adventures like the one they were loss on. Reagan’s use of rhetorical tools creates an optimistic thought to the all citizens that the seven astronauts passion and bravery has just started their
Gallien starts to notice the settings around him while he is on his way to drop Alex off. “For the first few miles the stampede trail was well graded and led past cabins scattered among weedy stands of spruce and aspen. Beyond the last of the log shacks, however, the road rapidly deteriorated” (Kraukaur 2). This quote creates of visual of the quick change from rural civilization to deep and dense forest. It also exemplifies the jurastic difference between the peaceful areas of the forest and the extreme woods in Alaska. One moment there can be a nice little open field and the next you cannot see ten feet without a tree getting in your way. From that the reader can easily foreshadow the events to come in Alex’s
Jimmy Carter announced his candidacy for president in 1974. For two years Carter traveled the country campaigning to be president. His main message was to return honesty to the White House. He wanted to eliminate secrecy in government, and often told people “I’ll never tell a lie”. Carter was able to build a reputation as an outsider to Washington politics which is what the people wanted because of all of the issues that were going on because of the Watergate scandal. When Carter became President the House and Senate had Democratic majorities, so many people thought it would be easy for Jimmy to get laws passed, but it was not that easy. Congress blocked Jimmy’s proposals for welfare reform and for a long-range energy program. Carter was not getting the changes made that he had told the people he would and this
John McPhee uses a variety of literary techniques in his novel to explain the magnitude of the situation at hand. In the novel Contr¬ol of Nature, specifically the chapter “Cooling the Lava,” Similes help to explain the volcanic eruptions and their aftermath in effective ways as most people are unfamiliar with what they are like. By using the device, it grabs the reader’s attention making them more likely to try and understand the situation. A volcanic eruption also deals with lots of technical and political jargon that can be uninteresting or difficult to understand, by using comparisons this language can be made more colloquial allowing readers with different types of background to comprehend and enjoy the novel. The literary device allows McPhee to provide a sense of clarity to a foreign situation.
Often times when presented with raw facts it can be difficult for an audience to obtain information. In order to make information stick when writing it is important to make a strong connection with your audience. In the excerpt Martha Stewart and The Cannibal Polar Bears in Jon Mooallem’ new book Wild Ones the author makes a strong connection with the audience by seamlessly drawing you in by presenting closeness and familiarity. He simply puts himself to the position to where the reader must look up to him as an expert and someone they can relate to. The author also uses strong ethical based claims that make you almost feel bad for the polar bears. In the excerpt the mooallem explains a northern military fort that was known as “the polar bear capital of the world”. with its newfound title came tourists. And with the uprising in tourism comes with the rise in destruction. The author makes a very strong and and almost emotional connection not only to himself but the the polar bears
Hunting is fun and full of adrenaline, until you become the one that’s being hunted. In Richard Connell’s thrilling Short-story, “The Most Dangerous Game”, a hunter, Rainsford, falls off his ship, and has no other option but to swim to Ship Trap Island. When he reaches the island he meets General Zaroff and Ivan, a Cossack savage who protects Zaroff. When Rainsford and Zaroff get to talking, eventually Rainsford learns that Zaroff hunts humans on the island, which leads to Rainsford becoming the hunted. This story contains many uses of the element of imagery to describe the setting, establish the mood, and describe the characters.
Going into this short story, I have a substantial Knowledge of Jimmy Carter, his life, presidency, and generally everything you need to know about the man. Most of my insight comes from a documentary film I watched in my leisure time by the name of,”American Experience: Carter” I found the story of Jack Clark to be really interesting, because when Jimmy Carter was running for governor of Georgia he ran almost on a racist platform; which he would later refute when he became governor of Georgia, and when he moved on to the presidency. (American Experience: Carter) On a more personal level, my earliest memory of all time was being on a farm in Southern Missouri riding a horse with the assistance of my grandparents on my father's side assisting me to ride said house. I can relate to that feature of the life of Jimmy Carter by having the earliest of memories of being on a farm. Other than that, one last anomaly worth paying attention to is Carter’s use of a lot of farm jargon. More often than not, he refers to his father as,”Daddy.” Likewise, he gives different names to certain animals and tools throughout the farm; I thought that was

Jimmy Carter was born James Earl Carter Jr. on October 1, 1924. He grew up in the rural town of Archery, Georgia. When he wasn’t helping his father on the peanut farm, he was fishing or playing in the woods with his friends, most of whom were African-American.
Author Robert J. Griffin and William A. Freedman explain that “..the most frequent and significant use [in The Grapes of Wrath] of the numerous animal tropes is to characterize the Okies’ plight: the Joads are forced off their forty acres, forced to live ‘piled in John’s house like gophers in a winter burrow’”(p. 571). They proceed by highlighting the use of negative descriptive words towards the land
Throughout the piece of writing, Carter employs many argumentative techniques with the utmost finesse. He employs the skill of manipulation, twisting the reader’s emotions by referencing his first-hand experience of the region. Strong and relatable evidence allows the reader to not only grasp the concept easier, but also subliminally formulate remedies for the problem, encouraging the reader to join the writer’s general vision. However, the conclusion to his foreword could cause the reader to think that the issue is purely a superficial regard of the greatness of America, as if the only reason the wilderness should be preserved is because it makes America look good. This shows the fact that the use of strong words can work for and against the author, depending on the reader’s original primary viewpoint. The mix of excellently excited argumentative techniques are enforced by this mistake, however. The small mistake allows for a more believable argument standpoint, and doesn't make the reader wonder if they aren't getting all of the information. The final paragraph excellently puts an end to an incredibly descriptive and convincing argument. The overall view of the writer is an easy one for the reader to adopt in the first place, and the argumentative skills of the writer make it exponentially easier to get
