The words “its tires hissing” and “glowing in the dark” allows the reader to understand that Greg is alone and that his neighborhood is poor and very quiet. Finally, Myers describes the setting by again, using personification, “Gusts of wind made bits of paper dance between the parked car.”. The reader can visualize that the area is abandoned and under kept which also gives the reader a sense of vulnerability for the character. In the story “Treasure of Lemon Brown” by Walter Dean Myers, Myers uses figurative language to describe the characters and setting more effectively the
I found mood throughout the story through the way that the people seemed very distant from their life and not very into doing things together. I think that the way that the non-human objects are the main characters sort of took away from what should have been happening in the story. An example to support this is, “ But no doors slammed, no carpets took the soft tread of rubber heels. It was raining outside”(pg1). This quote in the story made me think that the family was very different because most houses you hear a door slam and most people say goodbye, not just leave.
Janie, at first, doubts Tea Cake loves her because of her age and then, on account of her fortune, fears he may have married her only to run off with her money. However, Tea Cake proves through and through that he loves Janie for Janie and treats her with love accordingly. Though Janie and Tea Cake’s marriage is not perfect, (such as when he beats her to show Mrs. Turner and her brother that he is in possession of Janie) she has found the “bee for her bloom” in Tea Cake. Willingly, unlike with Killicks who would have forced her, Janie works with her husband in the fields when she and Tea Cake make a home in the Everglades (184–185). When jealousies arise through the flirtation of Nunkie, a girl who takes a liking to Tea Cake, Janie and Tea Cake fight but talk through and express their feelings over the flirtation to one another until each gives in and they become united once more (188–191).
He is sitting all alone in a room reading and all of a sudden, he hears a knocking at his door. He thought that it was a visitor so he opens the door and no one is there so he closes the door. He hears knocking once again and he opened the door again. He looked outside and yelled out twice Lenore’s name. He oh so wanted it to be Lenore at the door, but instead, there was no one there so he closes the door.
This furthers our image of an abandoned building. The writer gives the reader the impression that the person occupying the house doesn’t wish to be visited. It portrays this in the quote “equipped with neither bell nor knocker.” Bells and knockers are usually put on a door to notify that there is a visitor waiting outside, and since there is no “bell nor knocker” it shows us that the inhabitant does not want company. This is an example of deception in this novella as the
The front side of the Feté music hall did not attempt to differentiate itself from it’s surroundings. The two main glass doors were tinted so one could not see in, and the walls were covered with dirt and mud. The two bulky bodyguards at the door were a welcoming site however, and as the large glass doors slammed shut behind me, I felt comforted that I had just secluded myself from the spooky

A Reversed Reaction How would you react in a situation where someone gives you a surprise with good intentions? Most would be flattered and excited, but we see something very different in Katherine Brush’s short story “The Birthday Party”. The wife surprises her husband by setting up a show that includes a performance of the “Happy Birthday” song and ends with the husband being presented with a cake topped with a pink candle. Because of this surprise, we see the husband’s emotions change from neutral to embarrassed to angry. This short story illustrates that given a situation where people have different perceptions, someone may react to things done with good intentions in an unpleasant way.
