Earlier on in the novel, Sister Mary Aggie tells Percy if he goes to heaven, the sight of him will ruin heaven for others. When she said this to Percy, “her words stung” (Johnston 63), but later on in the novel, when insulted by a girl on how ugly he looks, he simply “nodded as if she had not insulted [him] but had merely said what no one knew better than [he] did was a truth [he] no longer cared about” (244). The manner in which Johnston introduces Percy differs from how he is illustrated later on in the novel. Later on in the novel, using words such as “merely” to describe the insult illustrates how verbal taunts have no effect on him anymore. Because he was rejected from society, he descended from a self-conscious timid boy to an apathetic
Also, to allow Nick explain how Gatsby was a victim of bad circumstances. Writing an interview allows the reader to ask questions they might have for the character hence, giving a better understanding to why things went that way in the plot for e.g. why Nick didn’t tell Tom that it wasn’t Gatsby who killed Myrtle, but Daisy. I believe people in West Egg deserve an explanation for why Gatsby was murdered and if he was the one behind Myrtle’s death. Hence, what is best other than a radio show.
Imagine a trusted counselor who betrays others by giving terrible advice. In Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, a similar situation occurs among Friar Lawrence, Romeo, and Juliet. The opposition believes that Friar Lawrence would not be responsible and it would be Romeo and Juliet’s fault due to do the several years of the hatred toward the two families. After analyzing all the information, it is Friar Lawrence’s fault for the death and Romeo and Juliet because the Friar constantly left out valuable information that he is supposed to tell Romeo or Juliet. At one point in the play, the Friar decides to turn a simple plan into something complicated that results in both Romeo and Juliet dying.
The second example of irony in the short story Winter Dreams is when Judy tells Dexter before he leaves for the war that she wanted to marry him. But when Dexter left, she ended up marrying another guy. This is an example of dramatic irony because it is understood because it is understood by audience reading, but the character still does not understand. The third and last example of irony in the short story Winter Dreams is at the end of the story when Dexter leaves Irene to be with Judy again, but in the end Judy backs stabs him again. This would be an example of situational irony because they situation turned out the opposite than what it should
In the poem “Ballad of Birmingham’’ written by Dudley Randal, some fellow peers might disagree with his ways of figurative captivation that he uses about the tragic events displayed to his audience, but believe it or not, there might be a few reasons behind this occurrence- and why it may have surpassed us all. First and foremost, the author took advantage of the heartbreaker and tear-jolter of literature known as Pathos. Pathos is the element of persuasion that was used to make his readers understand the mother’s pain and placement of losing an innocent child; your innocent child. Secondly, he clearly understood his adjectives and word elements throughout the poem and obviously objectified them to his own advantage.

Therefor the narrator of the poem saw a problem in her life and acted upon it to fix the problem trying to put it back to normal how it used to
Gatsby has his mind so remarkably revolved around Daisy that he has started to think illogically. He wants not only wants to erase the past but also wants Daisy to confess that she has only loved him. This would give him confirmation that repeating the past is obtainable. Gatsby reluctantly criticizes Nick on his way of thinking with the phrase, “Can’t repeat the past?... Why of course you can!” This passage shows how strongly Gatsby lusts for the idea that he can repeat the time in which Daisy only ever loved him and she did not have a family of her own.
