For Example Fred Hewitt states “For an hour more after that terrible shock, which shook the buildings of all San Francisco to the very foundations, people wandered about in an insane fashion.
In Frankenstein, on Victor’s way home after being away for six years, a key moment in the novel that weather sets the mood is when “It echoed from Saleve, the Juras, and the Alps of Savoy; vivid flashes of light dazzled my eyes, illuminating the lake making it appear like a vast sheet of fire; then for an instant, everything seemed of pitchy darkness, until the eye recovered from the preceding flash” (Shelley 50). The author, Shelley uses weather to describe the murder of his young brother, William.

Radley keeps him out of sight. Jem is quick to assume that Mr. Radley uses a physical means of restriction, tying Boo to the bed-post. What Jem doesn’t realize due to his young age and innocence, is that physical intimidation is not the only way to control someone.

Atticus seemed to have had a lot of power because he was known as a great lawyer but even he knows there was no way of him winning the case. “Atticus said, “I just wanted to make sure, Judge,” and the judge smiled”(Lee 224).
