Roald Dahl’s use of figurative language in the short story “Poison” effectively creates a vivid description of the events that transpire. There are many different types of figurative language used in “Poison,” but the most obvious ones are similes. “The question came so sharply it was like a small explosion in my ear” (Dahl 84). This quotation is a simile comparing someone’s voice to an explosion. At this time in the story, the narrator, Timber Woods, is calling Ganderbai to take care of the krait on his roommate Harry Pope’s stomach.
It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drag cage and made those walls dissolve away. And for the briefest of moments, every last man at Shawshank felt free.” So when Andy slowly delivers hope in how he transformed the library and uplifted the prisoners with books. How he manages to get his fellow employees a cold beer for breakfast. Or the way he manages to escape so perfectly. We watch Andy Dufresne teach us what believing in ourselves and never letting anyone stop you from running toward what you want looks like.
"Train rides and lonely avocados are good for us in moderation of course, plus avocados ripe up rapidly, where eggs usually last quite a while & that 's just a nature 's facts". Hi there, I 'm Intrigued by your philosophical state of mind! Cause usually I would read about my own industry (career), but then every now and then I would rather venture into our World Wide Web and find something interesting and relaxing to read so I can actually go to sleep! and last night it was your post on... "Train rides and lonely avocados. Sometimes it 's nice just to chat with a stranger about lonely avocados" Since I 'm focused on my own life Journey through this train ride, I would welcome this opportunity to chat with (civilized) stranger about
He offers Renfield to worship him and he will make him immortal by providing endless sources of insects which further influenced Renfield 's distorted cognation; compelling him to believe that blood is the only source of life.

The digestive system also features a working bee in the ability of the stomach contents to return in the opposite direction to the process of digestion -Digestive system Functions: Salivary glands help in transforming bilateral sugars into sugars mono and during the entry of nectar into honey
During his time studying the family, the monster becomes more “open to love and compassion, valuing education, language, and communication as he develops the ability to comprehend and share with others,” (Brackett). At first, the monster routinely stole food from the cottagers, however, when he discovered that this action brought hardship upon them he satisfied himself “‘with berries, nuts, and roots...gathered from a neighboring wood,” (Shelley 118). This improvement in character strengthens the idea that a natural education is superior. Conversely, when the monster imagines his creator, Victor, he curses “‘his crimes & malice”’ thoughts of hatred and revenge consume him (Shelley 96). This dichotomy highlights the incompetence of Victor as a parent.
Adopt a live and let live policy or keep applying the same formula hoping success will gradually drift within our reach. The spider may have succeeded the seventh time it climbed, but there is an entirely different take on perseverance in Katherine Mansfield’s ‘The Fly’. In this short story, a man observes a fly sitting on some blotting paper. He drops a blot of ink on it and watches it clean itself and just as it attempts to fly away he drops another blot of ink. He does this a number of times until the fly dies from the effort.
Later in the story Billy describes “the tea tasted slightly of bitter almonds”(5) This uses sensory details because he is describing something through a sense. In this case, he is describing how the tea tastes. Earlier in the text the old lady said the one of the boys liked tea a lot. So that means he liked the bitter taste. The thing is, bitter cinnamon is the taste of cyanide.
Lasix is a diuretic that stops pulmonary bleeding from extreme exercise and makes the horse lose weight at rapid speeds, which supposedly helps the performance. At this particular stable, the horses’ legs were burned with liquid nitrogen, a process called freeze-firing, and were soaked with other chemicals. Some trainers even used snake venom on their horses! While we have fun and stuff our faces with tasty snacks at the racetrack, these poor animals are getting slaughtered and abused right before our very eyes. The ways horses are abused in equestrian sports are endless.
We should not want life to be shorter and to just fly by us. Think of all the amazing and beautiful things you miss because you were too busy rushing from point A to point B. In Honore’s book he talks about how in the nineteenth century doctors were trying to bring to light all the possible side effects of speed. They mentioned many terrible things such as hair loss, tooth decay, or even cancer. Then a French man named Gabriel Hanotaux said, “We are burning our way during our stay in order to travel through more rapidly.” (Honore 46).
The pill bugs were cuddling with each other as a way to preserve the heat and therefore, wouldn’t waist a lot of energy and eventually die. For the 24 C the bugs where moving at a full speed. As it is said that the pill bugs are well adapted to moist temperatures because they need it as a way to breathe and not die from dehydration. Pill bugs tend to come out during the day because of the moist. The results are compatible with the results of the group experiments.
I started to run away,but I didn’t fly, I would be the new protectors. So after saving the hostages I asked,”who are you and what did you spit at them” He said “I’m The Puss Punk I was a puss moth caterpillar at a Juvy and they tried giving my human bodies name Ben Dover my abilities I can spit poison and climb walls”. “Who are you and what can you do”? “I am Mega Moth and I can fly I’m super fast and I don’t feel very much pain”. Little did I know this was the start of a partnership between me and Puss Punk that would last for a lifetime.
Dillard’s purpose is to inform the reader of how to develop a larger range of our vision in order to get new perspectives on how to live life. She introduces logos to get to ethos. Dillard uses many interesting facts like in “Fixed”, “The female will mate with and devour up to seven males”(Dillard 60) and “If a bee is heavy with honey, the wasp drinks by licking the tongue of her unfortunate victim”(Dillard 60). The facts prove that there are intricate details about everything. The authors desired outcome is to make people want to open their minds and look more abstractly in their lives.
These similarities provided character development, which led to important events, and obstacles Ender faced. Some of the most important similarities are the removal of Ender’s monitor and him beating up Stilson after, Ender playing the mind games, Mazer Rackham mentoring him, and Valentine trying to convince Ender to go back to space and finish his training. The most important similarity was Ender discovering the last bugger pupa and trying to find a planet where he can put it so the buggers can peacefully colonize again. All of these made the book and movie all that much better, because they all had profound impacts on the
