In a single, silent moment, his rage, his fear, his humiliation, and helplessness, had fallen away. That morning, he believe, he was a new creation” (Hillenbrand 383). After this moment of forgiveness, Louie was able move past the horrendous events that occured at the POW camps, and forgive his tormentors.

Being a writer of many different styles, Sherman Alexie started off as a poet before writing novels and short stories. His poetic manner continues in the story “Indian Education”. He has a wide array of dry statements mixed with metaphors and statements that are not meant to be taken literally. The trend for each years is that he starts off dry and literal and ends poetic and metaphorical. His description of his interactions with the “white girl” in seventh grade is a great example.
Maxine Clair utilizes a wide array of literary techniques to characterize the adult narrator’s memories Clair frequently manipulates different forms of syntax along with visual imagery and varying forms of diction to better characterize the narrator’s memories. Throughout the passage Clair constantly utilizes visual imagery to describe the setting or action vividly. Clair’s visual descriptions are often followed up with long syntax that normally have different forms of diction i.e. in paragraph 34 Clair attempts to vividly describe her father’s coat and utilizes informal diction in order to do so, Clair states “If you pated the heavy coats between the raggedy mouton that once belonged to my father…” this attempt to create a vivid description of her father’s coat doesn't only have informal diction but it is also tied along with visual imagery e.g. line 37 when Clair states “ the putrid-colored jacket my father wore when…” as well as lengthy sentences which normally keep things flowing.
This is especially prevalent towards the end as the speaker’s mind falls into a frenzy. In lines 85 and 91, “”Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil!--prophet still, if bird or devil,” the rhythm helps emphasize the sense of anguish and also create the image of the speaker yelling out as he is absolutely angered with the raven’s answers. Poe
The climactic moment of […] novel comes when Lucy finally “finds her tongue,” writing the text of her own life rather than allowing it to be dictated to her, a process that echoes fictionally what Brönte and Kincaid have done in reality – the former by subverting William Wordsworth’s “Lucy” poems too create her own Lucy … (142). In addition, in Alleyne’s interview, Kincaid reveals that as a child she wanted to be Charlotte Brontë, and she “loved the idea that this woman had written a book” (web). In another interview, she says that her writings did not come from the West Indian anansi tales, but came from English poems and novels: “It would be Charlotte Brontë. It would be English people” (Ferguson169).
was an abiding one and was restated in an essay she wrote in 1931 for The Colophon titled "My First Novels [There Were Two]"(Mignon 105). Louise Bogan commented "She used her powers... in practicing fiction as one of the fine arts" and praises her for not being among those "writers of fiction who compromised with their talents and their material in order to amuse or soothe an American business culture" (Cengage 2).

Use the word awesome and describe how I only save that word for God and for his works that bring forth beauty. “‘After I was shot, when they told me I wouldn’t walk again and I was lying in the hospital, I spent a lot of time thinking about civilization. What it means and what I value in it’” (183).
The author uses a lot of suspense to portray this courage, like the example above. He uses words like “I pressed the logout button” (145) and ends paragraphs in suspenseful ways. One great ending is when Wade is about to see Sorrento and do deals with him, and it ends the entire chapter with the words “and tapped the chat link button.” (133), making us think and assume about what is happening next. This shows suspense in a sense because it turns a tiny action into an almost book-changing one mainly by dropping off at the most exciting moment.
