One of the many ways that the author, Kurt Vonnegut Jr., used to create the tone and mood was his usage of many literary elements. The first one is diction, the writer 's choice of words. In the text, the author uses diction to help ease our understanding of the story. The diction he uses helps bring a lot of the characters to life, and help the readers understand in even more depth, the events that are taking place
Manjoo explains that both dogs and his son don’t act in a socially acceptable way. He loves his son and despises dogs and touches on how people get more annoyed with the parent of a misbehaving child than the owner of a misbehaving dog. His point in this comparison is to prove that he makes an effort not to disturb those around him while proving himself not impartial. Purpose and Audience: 2. Manjoo’s thesis, the last sentence in paragraph ten, is introduced halfway through his writing because he
Mrs. Ferjo’s application against the tribunal stated that she believed that the tribunal discriminated against her at the previous hearing when they denied her legal representation. Mrs. Ferjo checked off sexual discrimination on the application form but could not provide any factual evidence that she faced discrimination on those grounds. Mrs. Ferjo was therefore unable to establish prima facie case.  The tribunal argued the doctrine of judicial immunity prevented legal proceedings against judicial members based on their actions as an adjudicator or decision maker. This is so that judicial members can make decisions without fear of consequences.
He also spoke on the phone with respondent’s wife and mother. He attempted once, unsuccessfully to meet with them; however, he did not follow up a second time. Additionally, the counsel did not seek out additional character witnesses for respondent. The counsel’s conversations with his client led him to believe he did not need to request a psychiatric examination because he did not believe the respondent had psychological problems. In a state of hopelessness, the counsel decided not to present nor look for further evidence concerning respondent’s character and emotional state, because he believed it would not overcome the evidentiary effect of the respondent’s confessions to the crimes.
In the novel, the protagonist’s mind often flashes back to also signal the narrative change. Although there is different chronological order than the real war the novel reflects upon, the similarities are still easily differentiated and related to outside sources. Examples of references from the novel are the love interest and when the main characters fall through the hole. The references reflect Sacagawea and Alice in the Wonderland respectively. Foster provides these conclusions from this novel to show different techniques an author had used in O’Brien’s work so readers can easily differentiate some on their own.
When reading a fiction, not only the plot, but also the narrator and the point of view are important to readers in order to understand the story. Stories can be told in a various angle of vision or in one perspective, depending on which person point of view. “A story is said to be from a character’s point of view, or a character is said to be a focal or focalizing character” (Norton, 174). Readers sometimes feel they are overhearing the narrator’s thoughts because they follow along the narrator’s thoughts, actions, and feelings. Both Sonny’s Blues and the Yellow paper use first person narration.
Elizabeth tells them that Proctor never had an affair. Her lying makes Proctor look like an even bigger liar than the court already believes he is. Another example of how Elizabeth is responsible for the death of John Proctor is that Elizabeth knew about how Abigail is the one accusing people of witchcraft and how she is making false accusations yet Elizabeth did nothing to stop her. The whole time Elizabeth and John both knew that the accusations that Abigail was making was false, yet they continue to let it happen until Elizabeth gets accused. They do not care about anyone else getting thrown in jail or killed unless it is one of them.
“And he showed them the scar at the side of his neck, confirming his breach of faith, like a badge of blame… though this I suffered a scar to my skin… So that slanting green stripe was adopted as their sign, and each knight who held it was honored forever, all meaningful writings on romance remind us: an adventure when happened in the era of Arthur, as the chronicles of this country have stated clearly.” (187-189). Through this journey, Sir Gawain’s fall became the knights pride. They honored him for all he had done while Gawain instead soaked up all of his shame and surrounded his life around his one major flaw. In Misty Copeland’s case, what others thought was her flaw, helped to become her pride. She had always been told that she had too big of a body build to be a dancer.
The last line of the book is “yes, I’m giving him up” because the dogs represented the demise of David, the well-respected professor at the end of the book the dog dying was like the death of David’s social status.
