Lux had two tones that he was speaking in. For one, in the beginning Lux was speaking in a formal tone because in the poem he used “you” and “your”. When “you “and “your” is begin used in a context the writer is talking directly to the readers and trying catch his or her attention. When Lux used those words, he wants to get a connection with his audience and make it seem interesting for them to read.

Not only does he believe that the question misrepresents the value of teaching, but it also seems to disregard the opportunities that can be taken from class. The sarcastic tone helps portray Wayman’s frustration and annoyance, and the juxtaposition emphasizes the differences between the two opposite types of answers to the question. The repetition of two words at the beginning of each stanza further accentuates the juxtaposition and the range of situations that could have happened when one was absent from class.

He used a situation that was all around and such a huge issue that is important to the society today. Also using an issue and putting it into a totally different story, but with the same meaning. For example, in his poem, it state “I 'd rather smell of musty, green stench than of sweet, fragrant lilac.

Holden’s attitude to saying goodbye to Pencey Prep At the start of the book Holden says: Chapter 1:“What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of a good-by. I mean I've left schools and places I didn't even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don't care if it's a sad good-by or a bad good-by, but when I leave a place I like to know I'm leaving it. If you don't, you feel even worse.” (Salinger 2010: 4) Holden is angry and disappointed with the people around him, but even with this feeling of anger and disappointment towards these people, he wants a good bye from these people.
