He is speaking to himself about a dream he had where Juliet woke to find him dead. This is probably the most obvious foreshadow in the play, as that is exactly what happens when they are reunited in the Capulet tomb. Romeo does not know of the Friar’s plan and commits suicide before Juliet wakes up. She wakes to find him dead, and in turn kills herself. This foreshadowing is shown when Romeo states, “I dreamt my lady came and found me dead—/strange dream, that gives a dead man leave to think,” (5;1;6-7).
Tyler’s use of short paragraphs, sub-sections, and bullet points in her article which makes it appear to be a guide or a textbook. This structure makes her argument strong and composed because not only does she criticize us she also gives suggestion on ways human resources professionals can touch upon certain behavior and traits that we might have a habit of doing.

Tyler also asked questions in her article, thoughts that might be in her head or in her audience’s head as they read, that help the readers understand her argument.

Mairs applied a positive tone when describing the definition of cripple. She makes the reader see “cripple” in a positive way referring to a Gospel and defining it as “a lover of words.”
She wanted to believe that her hardships were only temporary, so she looked to story book characters as her friends and a refuge from reality. She is very good at vivid description and dialogue as well as her prose- using ordinary language without meter and making it sound beautiful. It creates a mental image in the mind of the reader.

This speech was given with a tone that is both passionate and polite. The author feels strongly about this issue and brings to attention a multitude of points about it.

She knew that it wasn’t all perfect and good but she also knew that it was not a cesspool of despair and darkness that some people make it out to be. So, she wrote the novel in a very smart way, she uses literary devices to show and tell a fantastic story but at the same time uses it as a way to talk about the problems and good things about Iran in the 1970s. This allows Persepolis to live longer and be discussed much longer if she simply didn’t use metaphors. It is also a way to show and teach people about a very heated subject and show them not everything is totally black and white in this world and that sometimes the monsters are actually men but at the very same time people can be great, people can work together to further a cause, people can care and at the end of the day people in Iran are exactly that, people and Marjane Satrapi simply wanted to show that in her novel and she succeeded

Thus, it contributes to the theme one can never trust anyone, even one’s own family.
Woolf leads in and qualifies her evidence by using casual and vague diction, which prevents her readers from feeling offended for her sharpness and Judith’s strong mind. When she sets up the stage for Judith’s story, Woolf “randomly” points to a time period: “…say in the time of Elizabeth” (693).

Although seeming unintentional, Woolf chooses this time period on purpose –– Elizabethan England was the time of Shakespeare. The casual tone implies the substantial amount of potential evidence, as Woolf does not have to search for a certain time for support.
Instead of rationalizing the war, and showcasing the good spoils of the war, Turner creates a piece that allows the audience to wallow for a moment in the immense emotion associated with the event. William Blake, another central figure of the 19th century art scene, had his own Romantic visions, quite literally. In The Ghost of a Flea (fig 3), Blake paints a strange animal-human hybrid that is said to have come to the artist in a spiritual vision. This figure is meant as the soul being condemned to reside in the body of a flea. A poet as well as a painter, Blake was an example of the Romantic artist, believing wholeheartedly in the power of imagination and the ability of art to convey profound ideas and
