The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies.

The style of which the story is being written is both descriptive and quite colorful, for example, “Um-hmm!... Ain’t you got nobody home to tell you to wash your face?”(Hughes pg.1) Hughes also introduces some specific languages and styles of literary devices such as repetition, hyperboles, and interjection. He also uses an exaggeration when trying to make a point, for example, “She said, ‘You a lie!’”( Hughes pg.1 ). You can’t actually be a lie so this was very exaggerated and emphasized.

Poe’s use of the words “alarming” and “caution” show connotative diction and cause the mood to feel a bit dangerous and threatening. The author also adds eerie and dark words to add to the connotative diction of the story.
