In the original book Friar Lawrence is a very wise old man and he helps a lot of people by giving them advice, and sometimes giving them an object to help them. This is seen in the play when he helps Juliet in Act 4 scene 1-2 when he gives Juliet the potion to fall asleep and to look like she is dead for 48 hours so she can be with Romeo. Friar speaks emotive language when he speaks in Act 4 Scene 1. An example of this would be when he says from the book: Hold, daughter: I do spy a kind of hope, Which craves as desperate an execution. As that is desperate which we would prevent.’ This makes Friar Lawrence interesting
His intro paragraph tells an interesting story, in a way that readers often forget what type of passage they are reading. Staples uses of phrases such as “my first victim”, “seemed menacingly close” “picked up her pace” and notably “running in earnest” (1-2). By using such a unique story with eye-catching phrases as the introduction of his article, Staples evokes the emotion of fear and unsettledness that soon proceeds to a feeling of relief, yet in a way that 's melancholic.
In addition to this she doesn’t actually finish her thought. For instance, in sentence one she writes, “When I see men who look like him or his friends”, or in the next sentence when she writes, “When I smell beer on a mans breath.” These are incomplete thoughts or sentence fragments. Gay allows these intentional mistakes to hook readers into finding out what happens next. This form of repetition also drives home what triggers are, showcasing their importance, and forcing readers to meditate on them. In the next paragraph the author re-affirms that she knows what she’s talking about by listing how she feels when any of her triggers get pulled.
In both the short stories they use similar sentence structure to convey madness. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” Poe does this by short sentences and frequent skips, for example when he writes this: ““True!- nervous- very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses- not destroyed- not dulled them” (Poe 670). The jumpiness creates a sense of confusion and disturbs the reader which furthers the authors point. In the literary analysis on “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Janice Haney-Peritz analyzes Gilman’s short story.
Most of the time Surprises can be a good thing but with situational irony surprises can come in many forms. Situational irony is when the story has a twist. For example in Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery” readers get a sense of horror when they find out that the lottery is not infact a raffle for prizes, but a raffle for who will be stoned to death. Situational irony is also shown in the short story “The necklace” by Guy de Maupassant. In this story though we are presented with a feeling of sympathy When the necklace Mathilde lost and became poor over was really just an imitation and she had worked for nothing.
“There is within me (and with great sadness I have watched it in others) a knot of cruelty borne by the stream of love, much as our blood sometimes bears the seed of our destruction,, and at times I was mean to doodle.” This Quote accurately displays the sort of imagery and tone often displayed in the short story with its’ bone chilling effect. The story at times seems like it may take a turn for the better and the mood will get lighter or happier or maybe even fluffier, but no the author brilliantly fools the reader with false hope of happiness, of life, and of content. There is many literary elements used in the scarlet ibis but the most common being bright and intricate Imagery, a foreboding amount of foreshadowing, and a brilliantly set and released mood. In The Scarlet Ibis the author gets extremely creative whilst using imagery to the point where you feel as if you are the narrator feeling the beat of his heart every strain, every pain, every ounce of guilt. “for a long time, it seemed forever, i lay there crying, sheltering my scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain.” there is also the sort of imagery that creates not an ominous mood but a happy one in its place.
To summarize the paragraph, Red Kayak contains believable dialogue because characters in the novel do curse.

The inside out poem by Diane Wakoski is saying even with flaws involved you can fix a problem with determination. In the beginning and middle of inside out it is all about his flaws and the annoyance he is, then in the end she wants to fix or solve the problem of their relationship. The overall meaning of the poem is you need to act and fix the problem in your life. In the beginning of inside out it is talking about how annoyed and bothered the woman in the poem/ the narrator is towards the man in the poem. The poem says “…a fly buzzing over the Kool-Aid spilled on the sin… (Wakoski 1.6-7)” This shows that she feels like he is bugging her like a fly.
Alice Walker uses narrative pace and diction to prepare the trade of what might just be a very gruesome ending. Throughout the short story she uses positive words to contrast the ending and the pace she uses gives a bigger impact towards what the main character Myop is about to experience. The first element I noticed was the contrast between the use of positive words in the beginning and negative words in the end. Throughout the short story Alice uses words like “skipped lightly” which gives us a sense of joy and happiness that is portrayed through Myop. And in the end she gives a sense of fear and wonder by using words like “The air was damp, the silence close and deep.” meaning that something unfortunate is about to be experienced.
It is also very informative for disclosure of the characters. Susan’s speech sounds natural and relaxed, while Tom speaks ironically, deliberately emphasizing and obviously exaggerating the gap in their social positions (“Who else do you know that is famous, Susan?”, “I can brag a lot when I get back down to South Carolina”). The irony in this case demonstrates the reader Tom’s internal tension. Actually, further in the text the reader learns that he “felt some shame” and the reason for this is that he was feeling “the most wonderful stirring of lust” for
