Then the outcast is the one that the other characters do not like. They are the ones that have people fear them in some sort of way. In Beowulf, the outcast and hero meet early in the story. Beowulf, the hero, meets other outcast throw out the story, but Grendel is the most important. The other two outcast are have a little part in the story.
There are various cases in the story where the men have snide remarks, or sound snobby and sarcastic. In the beginning, the women speak very little, and the article “Silent Justice In A Different Key: Glaspell’s Trifles” emphasises this: “with the exception of three words, we hear only male voices for the first quarter of the play” (Holstein 283). An extremely evident example of the men’s condescending tones is when Hale says, “Well, women are used to worrying over trifles” (Glaspell 604). This shows that
The second story also creates confusion when they raised the name “May” who was the girlfriend in the first story. The ending was very loose and scattered leaving the audience free to think about the situations and a put conclusion. Different people will give different conclusion to it. The situation that they were in made them frustrated and depression covered them like a black cloud. They used to call random friend to hang out and even talked to the soap about its health.
King perfects this age-old writing tactic and uses it to keep the reader in a constant state of unease, with little to no idea as to how the situation will play out. King will often lead the reader down a certain path only to pull a complete 180 on them and will turn the story on its head, all for the purpose of keeping the reader on their feet. He does this most profoundly with Beverly Marsh. Beverly had been abused by her dad so in her mind it made sense to her that she would eventually marry an abusive husband, and so she did with Tom Rogan. King goes out of his way to establish the history of abuse and mistreatment Beverly has suffered at the hands of the belligerent Tom and he makes it seem like we are about to bare witness to another vicious beating via belt after Tom sees Bev smoking a cigarette.
The constant usage of punctuation marks, such as exclamation points, creates a jarring and uneasy tone, especially when paired with phrases like “Ha!” (line 27) in humorless context. The narrator uses exclamation points, trying to make light of the situation and stimulate reader involvement. When the narrator describes entering his victim’s room, he says, “Oh, you would have laughed to see how cunningly I thrust [my head] in!” (lines 23-24). Knowing that the reader would not actually laugh in this situation, the narrator adds an exclamation point to make the situation seem less grim. This ends up further emphasizing his instability.
Many children use nightlights when they go to bed in order to limit the darkness surrounding them; the darkness impairs vision, leaving them with an overwhelming feeling of vulnerability. Adults face this dilemma at times too; it is an instinct that has evolved with the human race. However, darkness is not only a reality, but it is also a symbol of fear as well. Emily Dickinson’s “419” and Robert Frost’s “Acquainted with the Night” use darkness and night as symbols of hope and desolation respectively, as revealed through the poets’ use of imagery, point of view, and structure, to disclose that darkness can either envelop or be overcome. In “419,” Dickinson’s darkness is a metaphor for the unknown.
Dissatisfaction with ones present life can lead them to do almost anything. Langston Hughes short story, “Why, You Reckon” captures a naïve main character whom learns the hard way of trusting another personage, solely for the fact that they share a common dilemma. Hughes makes it apparent from the very beginning, that both the narrator and minor character share a common situation. This plays as a detrimental part as to how the short story plays out. Ultimately, Hughes “Why, You Reckon” represents that in the end everyone has their own motive, even if they say otherwise.
The “bullet” has a negative connotation to it because it often is associated with gun violence, warfare, homicides, and death. The metaphor insinuates that the girl is hurting him on the inside because this literary device indicates the girl hurting him after they fell out of love. Moreover, the narrator describes a boy’s past situation by stating that “… his skin / was a boy with a sad laugh” (4-5). This “sad laugh” is an oxymoron that shows the boy appears
Many people tell lies to make others feel empathy for them. Weak people buy into these lies and get develop and weak adaptation towards them. Whilst others ignore the empathetic feelings toward them and become strong against them or the forces against them. In Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire” we can see two male characters have contrasting resilience toward Blanche Dubois, this resilience is directly tied in with the empathy they feel towards her life story. Mitch feels sorry for her while Stanley doesn’t.
“Popular Mechanics” uses a very real problem with stock characters to allow the reader to fill in the blank of what is happening based off of their own views/experiences. This means that when the reader tries to understand what is happening it will be different for each person. The story uses such a real problem filled with characters we can not relate to and know nothing about, and uses figurative language and other literary devices to hide the truth of the story. It is up to the reader to interpret the story how they understand it. The plot of this story is very important to this story, and what is missing from the plot.

But it was getting dark on the inside too”. The symbolism presented initially marks the collapse of the characters relationship. The conflict of the two characters begins with a verbal altercation ultimately leading to physical dispute over their baby. “The kitchen light gave no light. In the near-dark he worked on her fisted fingers with one hand and with the other hand he gripped the screaming baby up under an arm near the shoulder”.
Bradbury’s style of writing made whomever the reader was think about what was actually happening in the story. He used many different techniques that played a part on giving suspense until it is revealed that the house is alone and something tragic has happened. Bradbury’s choice in diction, imagery, and syntax contributed to the tone and the sole purpose of entertainment for the

At the point when George shoots Lennie it demonstrates that he cared for Lennie and realized that in the event that he let the others discover Lennie they would torment him. Steinbeck demonstrates that, in Lennie 's situation, individuals with dysfunctional behaviors were dealt with as sub-par and misjudged with little help in their circumstances. It likewise demonstrates that when individuals are detainees to their status, for example, Curly 's wife, you are headed to do emotional and consideration looking for acts that cause inconvenience of everybody. In the book, the writer utilized words that were not proper English, for example, ain 't and different illustrations "You never oughta drink water when it ain 't running, Lennie,". John
