The short story “The Knife” utilizes various forms of diction to strengthen the quality of the text. He uses imagery in order to draw the audience into the story. Vivid phrases, such as “the tight click of clamps” and “the tough fibrous sheet” create a description that resonates with the audience. Selzer uses diction to create the tone and mood of the story. In the opening paragraph, his word choice suggests that the speaker is a murderer; in later paragraphs, it is implied that the speaker is a surgeon trying to save a patient. His use of jargon, such as “clamp, sponge, suture, tie, cut” and “hemostats and forceps” shows that the main character is a doctor, as they are the only people with this knowledge and access to these medical supplies.

An anesthesiologist is, as defined by Mosby’s Dictionary of Medicine, is “a physician who completes an accredited residency program in anesthesiology. Anesthesiologists may administer anesthesia directly or as part of an anesthesia team consisting of nurse anesthetists or anesthesiologist's assistants.” These physicians, however, have not been around since the beginning of surgery. Surgery back then was painful for the patient and more stressful for the doctor because with the patient aware the doctor had to be extra careful of every single move; because of the discomfort caused by a patient and stress that built by operators, anesthesiologists emerged and became a vital necessity in the medical field. If they had not existed, surgery would still be primitive and excruciating.

dinner.“How was your first day of school?” She asked. Logan didn’t think much of moving schools but it was nothing special. “Fine, I guess. I mean you don’t usually see a new kid in the middle of February.” It was a long day for Logan but with all the stress his mom had from moving houses and jobs he didn’t want to add any stress. “Don’t worry honey, it will get better.

In Tim O’Brien’s story “Notes,” he discusses his fellow soldier “Norman Bowker […] [who hung] himself in the locker room of the YMCA” (149). Bowker symbolizes the pain that many veterans experienced, and how they sadly found their only escape through suicide. Yet, veterans potentially could have survived and even thrived if they had access to resources such as therapy, psychiatrists, and psychologists. When organizations supporting the idea that veterans should have opportunity to obtain these assets proposed this concept to The House Committee members, “members repeatedly balked at the notion that Vietnam Veterans required special counseling programs to help readjust” (Scott 38). Additionally, Patrick Hagopian reflects on how the government opposed the idea of providing these necessary resources so much that “the Nixon administration identified the politically engaged psychiatrists as enemies” (55). The negative connotation

George looked down at the gun. There were crashing footsteps in the brush now. George turned and looked toward them. “Go on, George. When we gonna do it?” “Gonna do it soon.” “Me an’ you.” “You . . . . an’ me. Ever’body gonna be nice to you. Ain’t gonna be no more trouble. Nobody gonna hurt nobody nor steal from ‘em.” Lennie said, “I thought you was mad at me, George.” “No,” said George. “No, Lennie. I ain’t mad. I never been mad, an’ I ain’t now. That’s a thing I want ya to know.” The voices came close now. George raised the gun and listened to the voices. Lennie begged, “Le’s do it now. Le’s get that place now.” “Sure, right now. I gotta. We gotta.” And George raised the gun and steadied it, and he brought the muzzle of it close to the back of Lennie’s head. The hand shook violently, but his face set and his hand steadied. He pulled the trigger. The crash of the shot rolled up the hills and rolled down again. Lennie jarred, and then settled slowly forward to the sand, and he lay without quivering. George shivered and looked at the
The attempt to make a story sound beautiful and peaceful insights the conveyance the storyteller has even though it is about violence and death. The use of O’Brien’s imagery words during Curt Lemon’s death provides a very beautiful and calm description when indeed it is the opposite, it was said that, “when he died it was almost beautiful, the way the sunlight came around him and lifted him up and sucked him high into a tree full of moss and vines and white blossoms” (O’Brien 317). Through the use of scenic sceneries the true representation of Curt Lemon’s death provides a less painful picture for the listener. Painting the picture differently delivers setbacks to what one truly wants to believe, whether it being true or not. In the retelling of Lemon’s death, O’Brien repeatedly recounts the way Lemon died from various angles. This makes O’Brien confuse himself as to how easy it is to retell a story many times without having to think about it. The only way to create a true meaning behind a “true” war story is by not generalizing war, instead by providing a brief plot of a war story. When multiple versions pile up at the same time, it just ends up contradicting one another leading the storyteller to confuse him or herself from their own retelling. Although the persistent contradiction from the retellings structures the story from failing authenticity, “the benefit of all this unconscious cookery is
“Is this on”, Connor said while cleaning the dusty lens. “Day 5 in this deserted wasteland. It’s been 30 days since the tragedy.” Connor looked around finding for food. In the distance he saw a tree or what’s left of it. There were no leafs just a skinny brown branch. Usually insects would gather near trees. Connor lifted the camera. His foot kicked the thick brown dust as he sprinted towards the tree. The tree was on top of a long, tiring hike up a rocky mountain. It seemed as if it touched the clouds. He could barely see the tip of the mountain. “UGHHH….” Connor shouted as he stumbled on a rock. He fell onto his knees. As he got up he heard a car rev. The wasteland is covered with dust but somehow he saw a man waving. It was so dusty he
“OW!” He exclaims, snatching his hand away from her face- moments after it moves away, she feels a small trickle of blood slide down her neck. She opens her mouth again to scream but stops dead in her tracks. A very cold and sharp object pokes lightly into the skin under her ear- and she realises that blood she felt wasn’t Rhett’s, it was her’s. “ I don’t want to hurt you Peony- but you screaming like that is going to attract an entire bloody swarm of walkers to flood this camp. After that neither of us will have supplies! So I suggest you sit down, shut up and-”
