Morrison writes, "If she looked different, beautiful, maybe Cholly would be different and Mrs. Breedlove too…Each night, without fail, she prayed for the blue eyes…To have something as wonderful as that happen would take a long, long time"(46) This line from the text shows that to Pecola this white feature represents beauty and the end of her problems.

The Black Walnut Tree In Mary Oliver’s “The Black Walnut Tree,” Oliver employs personification, split section, and conflict between literal and figurative to establish the tree’s role in the family as a symbol of both the adversities and the rewards that arise from their endeavor to preserve their family history. The personification of “black walnut tree swing through another year of sun” is used to convey the fresh and renewed spirit of the family once they decide to keep their family together. The idea of the tree “swinging” represents a cheerful spirit. Since the author chooses to embody this cheerful spirit in her writing, it demonstrates the idea of family and home; money tends to draw people apart, but happiness and favor comes with the idea of an object like the walnut tree that forges the relationship in a family. Since the mother and child decided to keep the tree for the

These colorful words provide the reader with a sense of serenity. In the following stanza, the words used to create the pictures are more precise.

The house wouldn’t seem the same without it. I would miss watching the leaves bob up and down as if in a dance when the summer breeze wafts over them from an open window. I would miss the sense of tranquility it brings and the sight of new shoots, growing with such determination. It has stayed so uniquely beautiful throughout the years, and has even grown stronger.

A wash of violent color, pink and streaks of brilliant orange, the container ships on the horizon suspended between the blaze of the sky and the water aflame, the seascape bleeding into confused visions of Station Eleven, its extravagant sunsets and its indigo sea. The lights of the fleet fading into morning, the ocean burning into sky” (228). This quote, I believe stems off of what Frank was saying he valued in life.
