In the short story ‘Popular Mechanics’, Raymond Carver implicitly uses lighting, and weather conditions to provide foreshadowing. Carver opens the story by alerting the reader of the somber and grim mood through the dreariness outdoors. The caliginous lighting acts as a foreshadowing within the story because the darkness outside mirrors far more than the physical darkness in the house. The author uses metaphors like ‘windows that faced the backyard’ and ‘cars slush[ing] by on the street outside’ to imply that what happens within the house is not usually seen nor acknowledged by the public. Moreover, he tells the reader that the events in the house, no matter how grave, does not affect nor disrupt the outside world in any way.

However in the story nothing ever happens to Victor’s creation and he is perfectly fine. “ A naked person will start to feel cold if the surrounding temperature drops below around 25°C (77°F). Physiological responses such as shivering and diverting blood away from the extremities and surface of the skin will then kick in.” The warmest
Ambiguity in John Keats poems Applied to the poems To Autumn and La Belle Dame Sans Merci The following essay treats the problem of ambiguity in John Keats poems To Autumn and La Belle Dame Sans Merci. Ambiguity is treated by the structuralism school and is presented as an intrinsic, inalienable character of any self-focused message, briefly a corollary feature of poetry. Not only the message itself but also its addresser and addressee become ambiguous. Besides the author and the reader, there is the ‘I’ of the lyrical hero or of the fictitious storyteller and the ‘you’ or ‘thou’ of the alleged addressee of dramatic monologues, supplications and epistles. Empson said that: „The machinations of ambiguity are among the very roots of poetry”(Surdulescu, Stefanescu, 30).
Before the incident, the cold room was filled with “nothing but sunlight” (Morrison, 185). Just like 124, the cold room was warm. As the murder unfolded, the heat dissipates, and is engulfed by a deep flash of coldness. The sheriff, an outsider who has not, and would not experience slavery, would have a taste of the negative mental effects of enslavement indirectly upon his arrival at 124. While standing inside the cold room, “[he] resisted the urge to run into the August sunlight…he was just cold.
In the case of this narrator, the Character is chosen by Dunmore to give his view, as the father of Anna, who will shock the reader as he is mysterious, as not even her daughter knows what happens in his life. This character is a writer who volunteers to fight at the front, so from his diary entry much is known from the outsides of Leningrad.

Moreover, the character being a writer gives him the power of the language to communicate his feelings and experiences, giving good descriptions that leave the reader with a new perspective from the war.The age and experience of this narrator also
Poe did not create these genres, but popularized them. These genres showed a darker aspect of romanticism and focused more on the human psyche rather than just the evil itself, which gave the stories a new dimension. In both texts, Poe uses narration and dictation to showcase both genres. Poe does this to show how literature is a truer reflection of the human psyche than logic. He made his characters realistic, even though they were dark and evil.
"To think or speak poetically is to adopt a distorted stance toward the ordinary world..." and to do so is with the use of figurative language (Gibbs 1). Figurative language is the point at which you utilize a word or expression that does not make use of its literal meaning. Authors who utilize figurative language, use this to make their work more fascinating or more emotional than the exact language which essentially states simple facts. Authors frequently use figurative language to make unfamiliar things, settings and circumstances more relatable for the reader. Poems, specifically, depend intensely on figurative language.
