This use of metaphor exaggerates how both characters need companionship to stay sane, or they will wallow alone with

The three narrators in Frankenstein are Victor, Walton, and the Creature, all with very distinct personalities and character traits. Of these storytellers, Victor could possibly be debated as the most extraordinary. The qualities that make Victor pictured as this unique character, that the fact that he is a dynamic character, and that he is an unreliable narrator.
Tone is a literary device being used to show how the novel is being written. Steinbeck is being sympathetic towards all of his characters, but he’s not going to invent an happy ending for any of them.

Of Mice And Men is written in a naturalist style of writing. Steinbeck refers to Lennie as an animal.

This is the morally flawed, fallen world that humanity has inherited. Hence the references in Chapter 5 to a ‘dismal wilderness’ with its ‘wicked Noah’s ark’. Magwitch is another of the limited number of characters in Great Expectations who grow through time. He is crucial to the development of the plot as he is the unnamed benefactor behind Pip’s sudden change in circumstances. Furthermore, because he insists on secrecy, Magwitch’s structural role in the novel is to enable both Pip and the reader to be misled into assuming that Miss Havisham is the benefactor and, more importantly, into assuming that it is Miss Havisham who has ultimately destined Pip to be betrothed to Estella.

Although, the effect of those memories may not be to the same extreme extent as on Hamlet, purpose relies strongly on memory. In the play, Hamlet stated, “Purpose is but a slave to memory” (3.2.176). Memory drives action, which is seen in the play how the memory of Hamlet’s father and, addition to the lack of memory of the other characters, guide Hamlet’s journey into madness. Not only does the word slave enforce the idea of being under the domain of something (OED), but it also indicates a lack of control.

Enders Game. The point of view that this story uses is Limited Omniscient, because the author uses words like He, she, they, on parts of the story that involve other characters, but the narrator spends most of his time on Ender Wiggins part of the story. Some examples of this from the story.
The novel tells a story of an unnamed man and his son in who struggle to survive in this horrific environment. I feel that the language in the novel is verbose. McCarthy is blunt in his descriptions.
