Palahniuk novels seem as though he takes copious amounts of drugs before he stares at a computer screen with wide, bloodshot eyes and then types for 26 hours straight to pump out this critically acclaimed, award winning piece of literature. Imagery is one of Palahniuk 's go to rhetorical strategies when it comes to Fight Club. In important instances when he wants you to notice something that will later play a role in the novel.

What is well-admired in this piece is the way Hughes was able deceive the readers in a good way, by using Black characters and then playing with their expectations only to shatter them. When readers might be expecting a story about the discrimination of Black citizens again – the characters were a Black woman and a Black child – a plot twist rendered this prejudgment highly insufficient to match the complexity of the story. Notably, the story had a woman and a child as its characters, as abovementioned and this is interesting because they belong to another set of categories which are generally viewed and actually disenfranchised in their own ways too. Hence, the very selection of characters seem to divert the attention away from Black-ness alone and bring up other issues like gender and social ills that harm

In this report, Charlie describes how he is going to leave New York, due to an experiment gone wrong, thus making you doubt if such an experiment is even a good idea after all. Throughout this short story one gains an insight to the development of said experiment, from Charlie Gordon’s point of view through his progress reports, and is therefore able to understand it on a more personal level. In his reports, Charlie is instructed to write down his thoughts and feelings, giving you an opportunity to look into his emotional journey during this experiment as well. In the first couple of progress reports leading up to the surgery, Charlie is very hopeful and eager to learn, eg.
As people age, they may change due to situations that have an influence on their lives. Through life’s journey, people often face many important decisions in their search for their true identities. During this process, the decisions people are required to make help to define one’s personality and overall character. As people search for a sense of contentment, other people as well as one’s own internal feelings may alter the path that one takes, unexpectedly leading them to their true identities. In The Bicycle and The Metaphor, by Jillian Horton and Budge Wilson, respectively, both authors use characters who show how internal and external influences such as peer pressure, authority from parental figures, and guilt have the potential to alter Hannah and Charlotte’s desires and the choices they make to develop their true identities.
