The story is told from the omniscient first person point of view. The man has come across this snake while he is out on a walk through the desert. Both the man and the snake had no intentions of harming the other at first, “My first instinct was to let him go his way and I would go mine…”. Then the man puts into perspective that he needs to be the protector of the other people that live with him, “But I reflected that there were children, dogs, horses at the ranch, as well as men and women lightly shod; my duty, plainly, was to kill the snake”. The use of the first person point of view helps to portray the sadness and sorrow of the man, and overall to appeal to the pathos of the reader by going after their
Around halfway through the journey across the desert, Salva was ravenous for any form of food or water, and he was languishing in the torrid conditions.

Can you do that, Salva Mawien Dut Ariik?”’.
High Noon and The Most Dangerous Game have two similarities and one notable difference. The two protagonist character Will Kane and Sanger Rainsford are alike. Both of the men are being hunted alone. "An apprehensive night crawled slowly by love a wounded snake, and sleep did not visit Rainsford although the silence of a dead world was on the jungle" (Connel). Riansford is all alone on the island, besides
The thing that most mass shootings, but definitely all of these have in common is that they were all committed by boys. He applies the logic of facts to the situation to make the reader agree with his viewpoint because it is hard to argue with facts. He also clarifies saying, “Most men will never turn violent. Most men will turn out fine. Most will learn to navigate the deep waters of their feelings without ever engaging in any form of destruction.
A simile is a comparison between two objects using like or as. There are two great examples of similes in “The Most Dangerous Game.” The first of which is “An apprehensive night crawled slowly by like a wounded snake.” This simile is comparing an apprehensive night to a wounded snake crawling by slowly. The author likely used this simile to help the reader better understand the scene. Additionally, it is also an example of personification because the night can’t crawl. Next, the second example is “He strained his eyes in the direction from which the reports had come, but it was like trying to see through a blanket.” This simile is comparing seeing through a blanket to trying to see where the noise came from.
Humans are not perfect beings free from illness and corruption. Things can go wrong and often types people suffer for it. They can go insane.

When faced with a potentially dangerous animal, one must decide if they should attack the animal before it attacks them. In the short story “The Rattler”, a man is walking close to his ranch when he encounters a rattlesnake. He is faced with the decision of whether he should kill the snake to keep the people around the ranch safe or let it go, ultimately deciding to kill the snake. Through diction and tone, the author makes the reader feel as though the snake should have lived through sympathy for the snake. Throughout the story, the author uses strong word choice to indicate that the snake did nothing wrong.
The mood is gloomy near the end because when he says “A silent head and beak lanced down and plucked it out by the head, and the beak swallowed the little snake while its tail waved frantically”(97). This represents the death of Curley's wife. Later in another paragraph he says “The heron stood in the shallows, motionless and waiting”(97). This shows that the story is slow and gloomy because he isn't using much description in the quote that I pulled from the book. Steinbeck is able to use the same setting and create to very different moods in the book “Of Mice and Men”.In the beginning of the book the mood in calm but near the end it is gloomy.
As stated before, Sykes is abusive and takes pride in hurting Delia. Furthermore, he brings a poisonous snake home in order to frighten her. Sykes uses the snake to fulfill his desire to control Delia through any way possible.

And some questions we already have answered. The people who built the mound didn’t leave any written word making this a hard puzzle to crack.

Some thoughts have ranged from a snake swallowing an egg, a snake throwing something up some have even said it’s the serpent from the Garden of Eden about to eat a fruit (Wohlfarth, 2007). Bengston, as mentioned in What Lies Beneath (2007), had a thought about the formation of The Serpent Mound, “Hailey’s Comet’s appeared in 1066A.D.
A mirror, nevertheless, that reflected not an image of him, but rather a vision of a life he could never, and would never have. All because of Him!
