The impact of the weather scene is a way to indirectly relate to the murder of Victor’s young brother, William. The author, Shelley utilizes weather to convey the Victor’s emotional feelings about the murder of his bother William. Through imagery in the quote, Shelley is able to utilize words to describe the weather relating them to both the storm and what has happened to our protagonist. To me, the flashes of light illuminate the lake which is his brother. William’s illumination is the light of his life is soon quenched when the author describes the “pitchy darkness” (Shelley 50) hence he unknowingly and quickly he is taken from life into darkness.
In the passage, Josan is worried the “stone tower [will] crumble beneath the fury of the storm” (31-33). The reader experiences the violence portrayed by Bray through her dramatic literary illustrations. She personifies the monstrous storm to increase the tension between Jason and the storm. Bray symbolizes “the lighthouse [as] being swallowed by the ocean” to gradually develop suspense in the story (48-49). The author keeps using personification throughout the story to create imagery.

Immediately after Clerval informs Victor that his brother William passes away, which is later revealed to be the work of the monster, A storm begins to brew. Victor states that “the thunder burst with a terrific crash over my head... vivid flashes of lightning dazzled my eyes, illuminating the lake, making it appear like a vast sheet of fire” (Shelley, 84). Lightning flashes before Victor’s eyes as a reminder from Zeus of his wrong doings. Shelley uses a simile comparing the lake the lake to fire, which draws a connection to the story of Prometheus the man that went too far giving fire to man. Similarly a single paragraph after Justine’s death is revealed to Victor by Elizabeth through letter, there is a lightning storm.

It grew quicker and quicker, and louder, and louder every instant” (85). The phrase “hellish tattoo” means awful drumming, in this case, the awful beating of the heart.
The Ghost says “Upon my secure hour thy uncle stole, With juice of cursed hebona in a viral, And in the porches of my ears did pour…” 1.5.67-69. From these two lines the Ghost of King Hamlet begins to help create a mental picture of what he physically felt while he was being murdered by his own flesh and blood. When Marcellus states “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”, 1.4.99, I believe is talking about the situation with the ghost and death of anyone would smell like roses. What I take from this statement is that there is some unfinished business and due to that reason this is why the King’s spirit is not at ease. Another good example of image in Hamlet is when Prince Hamlet describes how he feels about his mother’s quick decision to marry his uncle.
The real change in the story happens when it starts raining, the movie is almost over and a storm is happening.

The rain is used as a progressive set to push the hero into self-awareness of what's going on around him. David’s journey ultimately sets polarity between the characterization between hero and monster, since the journey always surrounds the hero in test of morality and heroism and the villain is in the background and

In the final paragraph of "The Overcoat", the ghost that has been stealing overcoats from people is confronted by a watchman, and he seemed to be purposely confusing. One may view it as the ghost of poor Akaky, that is now haunting the unjust society that allows the victimization and bullying of the weak and the poor by the higher class that is strong and mighty. The way the ghost is described in this paragraph is " this apparition, however, was considerably taller and adorned with immense mustaches, and directing its steps apparently toward Obukhov Bridge, vanished into the darkness of the night" (Gogol, pp782). The apparition wore huge mustaches, was a symbol of the people that took Akaky overcoat in the first place, and this suggests that
