This creates a picture to the reader of how much his mother does for him the poet by using hyperbole. Also Collins uses metaphor, Collin writes,”and here is clothing and a good education.”(28). This also shows the reader how much the mother does for him. By using hyperbole and metaphor the author is trying to show the theme, that you can never repay your mother, but it's just
Particularly in the first paragraph, she uses metaphors and similes to portray her situation. For example she uses the metaphor “collecting words like a beggar gathering rain with an earthen pan” to describe how she followed her aunt around while she spoke english. This creates a powerful image of her desperate want to learn english as well as its necessity as it is compared to water.

Both of these uses of figurative language and the imagery that they consist of help to paint the picture of Cao’s love of english.
Besides learning about immigration and separation, I feel as though students whose parents are not immigrants will still empathize with Saya’s family. They will read about how much Saya misses her mother and how difficult it is for them to communicate. Students can also see how Saya’s father persevered and did not give up on trying to get the story of Saya’s mother to the public through writing letters. Students can learn about the importance of speaking up and not staying silent, since Saya’s letter led to giving her mother’s case coverage and eventually having her mother released from the corrections facility. I do believe there are multiple things that students can learn by using this book, and that an activity on storytelling and writing letters can be used in a lesson plan with the

Linda uses philological techniques to keep her audience engaged in her fragments and she is able to get her point across to others. With Linda 's writing style, she demonstrates with writing assignment examples, this way others can relate to the information that she is giving. Linda uses this technique because she believes that it helps readers to see if they can relate themselves to the situations that she is describing. While going over the readings I believe that Mary and Linda carry some of the same characteristics when it comes to reaching out their audience for writing. It is very important to make the readers feel like they are actually in it.
These allusions made by the writer can also help the reader understand the overall main focus of the story, not just make connections. These connections can also be used to relate to most, if not, all people. These are just a few examples that the techniques a writer uses are intentionally chosen to enhance and enrich their own writing.
In the Raymond Carver stories “Cathedral” and “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” communication plays a major role in developing the story. In this essay I will analyze how the theme of communication plays both similar and different roles in developing the meaning of these two stories to further understand how communication effects the characters. Communication is an important part of the story to understand because it gives the reader a better understanding of the moral of the story as well as important life influences of the author. “Cathedral” and “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” are excellent to stories to compare their theme of communication because communication gives each story a unique meaning, but both stories use communication in different ways to do so. By exploring the different types of communication in these two stories it will be easier to understand the moral meaning of the stories but also how different types of communication can be more effective than verbal communication.
Words speak louder than Action The usage of language is really important in the story, the author starts his/ her expression of ideas by using languages from which reader can able to identify the feeling or emotions of a character. Using proper and meaning full language is highly effected on stories. At first, when the reader starts reading a story, the first thing is to understand the language, author uses “Figurative Languages” which helps to define the feeling in other words. Author Atwood expresses her ideas through the use of powerful language in “The Handmaid’s Tale” so that the reader gains new perceptions about the purpose or the theme of the story. Atwood represents the power of language in the ruling class, gender role, and race.
