Max doesn’t like to read or write, while Freak loves to. Freak sees potential in Max-one that Max doesn’t see in himself. So he decides to give him this dictionary full of words like xyloid and obfuscate. Max does enjoy the present “This is the best, getting Freak’s dictionary”(98). Max’s teacher’s begin to see that potential too “...she finally gave up on trying to trying to make me talk in class, and instead she waits until study hall, where she asks me the same questions alone and I tell her the answers”(81).
A really good metaphor that was used in the poem “A beard for a Blue Pantry” when he says, “Or washed her abundant hair which is gone now, like Bluebeard who sickened and dwindled away”. (Hall). This line is very relatable because I’ve had family that lost their hair due to cancer. He showed the audience what was going on instead of telling us. In my opinion, I believe that the poem “Her Long Illness” really painted an image for the readers and made us feel as if we were there at the hospital with him and watching him nervously pacing around, drinking coffee, and reading poetry to his wife while in chemotherapy.

The author, Danielle Ofri, came across a severely ill patient, Wilburn Reston, which really makes her think. The patient happens to be suicidal due to all the critical incidents that have occurred in his life; for instance, the death of his mother and sister, his estranged wife, and his poor health. Mr. Reston was undoubtedly depressed, and in my opinion, his thoughts were rational. Danielle Ofri mentions “Mr. Reston seemed to have a reasonably realistic grasp on his situation, I wasn’t sure I had a grasp on mine.” Owing to the fact that his thoughts were realistic, Ofri was struggling on agreeing with her patient’s thoughts.
When Montag comes home from his long day at work he notices that his wife has overdosed on her sleeping pills(12). Another example of how Bradbury uses the dark tone is when Montag is doing his job as a fireman and had witnessed the suicide of an old woman with her books(43).

In order to educate himself, as well as write his book to educate people like himself,
According to Lemony Snicket, “[You should] never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them” and writer Stephen King presumably would agree. In On Writing, pages one forty-seven through one fifty, King uses diction, critical and ardent tones and figurative language, to highlight the significance of reading and how it benefits a writer. King utilizes diction to persuade aspiring writers to read regularly. He writes, “I take a book with me everywhere I go, and find there are all sorts of opportunities to dip in.” (147) “Waiting rooms were made for books—of course! But so are theater lobbies before the show, long and boring checkout line and everyone’s favorite, the john.” (147) King uses an informal diction to advocate frequent reading.
In fact, during the rudimentary monologues of characters like Colonel Cathcart, Captain Black and Major Major that make the novel a swashbuckler, it all involves them questioning the almost dreamlike existence of man with a name like that. Yossarian: a character that the author did tribute to by writing Closing time, his 1992 reprisal to Catch-22, and did not fail to add in the latter book’s paperback introduction that his major creation will never die in his own hands but in another’s. So much for James Heller. So much for us the readers who have to keep our ribs on hold tickled by many trials within the book, poignantly metaphysical, where a character asks ‘who is’ that stepping on his feet while a court martial is going on. That alone, if it does not give a hint of how boring, pettish and deviating
