Eugenia Collier the author of the short story ‘Marigolds’ uses tone and diction to set a feeling of transitioning from a little child from an impoverished little town to another person who showed compassion. One example of the author using tone and diction to create a voice is on page 18, paragraph 19, “...we made up tales that we half believed ourselves about her exploits.”.

Another example of the author using tone and diction to create a voice is on page 19, paragraph 24, “I just stood there peering through the bushes, torn between

When she fell down she “...God doesn’t give bonus points for a limp” (Mairs 256). Humour is also evident in the author’s opening anecdote

One’s ability to not get caught up in the chaos of the 1920’s is evident in the novel, especially in Daisy. Daisy symbolizes innocence and purity, which is why she is described wearing white clothing and having white powder on her skin. Even though Daisy represents purity, she becomes corrupt throughout the novel. The color black resembles Daisy as a result of Daisy running over and killing Myrtle. Gatsby became worried that Tom would harm Daisy for her murder of Myrtle, so Gatsby travels to Daisy’s house to check on her when he stated, “I waited, and about four o’ clock she came to the window and stood there for a minute and then turned out the light” (Fitzgerald 147).
Reporting medication errors is beneficial to improve the learning process for nurses. The factors of workload, ineffective communication, and distraction all contribute to medication errors (Sears et al., 2013). Nurses often excuse the behavior of colleagues when a medication error occurs, or nurses will pass the buck to a senior nurse to report the medication error (Haw, Stubbs and Dickens, 2014). Implementing a no blame policy for reporting medication errors, and providing nurses with the knowledge and training to report medication errors will result in an increase of medication errors reported.
