5. diamond backs and pit vipers Western diamondbacks are pit vipers. This means that they have a heat sensing pit loreal pit located behind each nostril that can detect differences in temperature, sometimes differences that are only a fraction of a degree apart. The heat given off by an animal is detected by the snake helping it to determine predator from prey. Its back is lined with dark diamond-shaped blotches outlined by lighter-colored scales.Its head is distinguished by two dark stripes, one on each side of its face, which run diagonally, like Zorro’s mask, from its eyes back to its

Technology is portrayed as the opposite of nature; where nature is pure and regenerative technology is corrupt and mentally taxing. Shelley characterizes anything dealing with scientific advancement as technology and, as a result, corrosive. Immediately after returning to college from his invigorating trip to the countryside, Frankenstein receives a horrid letter from his father detailing Victors brother William’s death. Shelley heavily juxtaposes nature and technology in through this event. Victor goes from “feelings of unbridled joy and hilarity” (76) while in the countryside of Ingolstadt to feelings of “grief and fear” (82) once he reenters the college.
This can all be identified on page 375 when the text states, “Everyone cheered and then drank [wine] --except me. Before the next minute had passed, they had all fallen to the ground [from poison].” This small blurb clearly indicates that the family members of El Patrón never contemplated the idea that the wine was poisoned by El Patrón. Before they drank the wine too, the group talked about selling his belongings the next day. They never did expect El Patón to turn on them. El Patrón simply did not want anyone to live on his estate if he wasn’t there.
A simile is a comparison between two objects using like or as. There are two great examples of similes in “The Most Dangerous Game.” The first of which is “An apprehensive night crawled slowly by like a wounded snake.” This simile is comparing an apprehensive night to a wounded snake crawling by slowly. The author likely used this simile to help the reader better understand the scene. Additionally, it is also an example of personification because the night can’t crawl. Next, the second example is “He strained his eyes in the direction from which the reports had come, but it was like trying to see through a blanket.” This simile is comparing seeing through a blanket to trying to see where the noise came from.

Every novel contains a distinct feature within its pages that distinguishes it from other books. Whether it be a variation in tone, writing style, format or theme, this component impacts the audience and the novel itself in a special way. One of the stand out features in John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath are the descriptive, sometimes political, interchapters where the reader is given a snapshot of life in the Great Depression. Due to the context and realism the interchapters bring to the novel, they are crucial for the reader’s understanding of the time setting and storyline of the novel. Chapter five brings the most heartbreak of all interchapters, because it illustrates the poignant moment when farmers are told to leave their land.
In The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck follows the Joad family as they suffer the hardships caused by the Dust Bowl in the 1930’s. The most important lesson people can learn from the novel is the value of a human life. Although the 1930’s was a low point in American society, the ill-treatment of human beings is still relevant today. Just like Jim Casy’s philosophy, it is important to fight for the rights of the people and their dignity. There are several examples of oppression in The Grapes of wrath.
Portrayed as an inhumanly and malevolent being when in reality the desire for social interaction burns within his nature but is cut off due to an agoraphobic state, Boo Radley is conflicted in terms of reaching out and socializing with his neighbors Scout and Jem Finch. This can be concluded throughout Part One of, “To Kill a Mockingbird” as Boo demonstrates forms of communication and the urge for interaction. These acts consist of Boo stabbing his father, the displacement of tree treats, and the blanket he set on Scout. Each of these help to develop an idea that he’s become exhausted of being cooped up indoors and instead wants to break free from this restraint. Thus, in Harper Lee’s, “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Boo yearns for social interaction with the Finch children.
In the end no one was left, and the she-goats and the he-goats returned from the hills whence they had fled, and they looked in innocence at the death camp of the people.” (176) Antonio dreams of Armageddon, which ironically is an event of mortality and utter destruction. It has setting of a nightmare more than a dream. Many would ask, what would cause such a twisted imagination? Astonishingly, it was the effects of parental influence that led to the conflict that would seep into the dreams of their child. Additionally, Antonio’s dreams are deep-rooted, yet his confliction is still able to negatively nourish his
Stating that everyone should “crush with [their] heel the wooly head of [the] black lizard”(373), Buckley draws comparisons between Bigger and a snake--the physical embodiment of evil. When confronted with a great evil, it is humanity’s duty to ensure that said evil dies. Comparing Bigger to a snake creates a sense of urgency among the jury. Allowing a deadly viper to roam free increases the risk of being bitten. Buckley coerces the jury into believing it would be downright sinful to allow such a threat to live.
Undoubtedly, they were curious about what was going on in, the regions that were affected by the Dust Bowl. So, what a better way to solve their curiosity then, to read a novel written by a person that was in the front lines of course because of this reasons people read this historical novel.
