Another favorite part of mine was when Doc, Hunger, Mildred, Squib and Hazel went on a mission to dump a barrel of animal poop on a guy’s car, which Doc and Hunger did all the work and they even dumped some inside the car. “Now, let’s shake it.

The author wrote,“ Well, Stacey didn 't see Miz Logan comin ' when he took them notes, and by the time he saw her it was too late to get rid of 'em.

He also utilizes this theme to show us how the characters evolve throughout the story the characters change in drastic manners the way they act and the way you persevere them as characters.An example of this is that Guy Montag starts off as a man he enjoys what he does for a living burning books and he loves the smell of the kerosene lighter fluid he uses but later in the book it says “Montag is sick the next morning, and the omnipresent stink of kerosene makes him vomit” At the beginning of the book Montag loved the smell and he loved his job but now the smell makes him want to vomit.

For instance, he stated, “Pushing through the market square, so many mothers signing.” what he said helps us visualize and imagine what everyone is feeling and doing when they hear the tragic news. David Bowie uses this device to communicate his purpose of telling a detailed story, because without imagery, this story would not be as entertaining. Listeners respond to this by having new emotions and visualize the setting better. Another great example of imagery in this song is, ¨I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies/I saw boys, toys, electric irons, and TVs.¨ This is another great example because it furthers on the first example of what he heard and saw when the news was broken to him.
It is funny to see a teacher make fun of a dumb student. Another unique style Mark Twain uses is social commentary. This is where he gives his opinion about something, or he is making fun of the outdated usage of words or style. One example from Mark Twain’s novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, was when the children see the judge from Constantinople, and they notice the judge has seen a tin roof, they are in awe and start making remarks, saying, “ He lived twelve miles away, so he must have traveled the world, and he has looked upon a tin roof” (ch 4)! This shows social commentary, because he is making fun of how the kids have only seen a tin roof, and only have traveled a mile.
