Ironically he does so by doing nothing. Nick Carraway’s passive nature leads to the many mishaps in the novel, which stresses the idea that not being evil does not necessarily make someone a good person. “I’m inclined to reserve all judgements” (1) Nick states at the beginning of the novel, which instantly sets up his passivity. His passiveness sparks complications early on, such as when Tom takes Nick to meet Myrtle in secret. Nick tags along because he “had nothing better to do” (24) and seems to have little qualms about the fact that Tom is cheating on Daisy openly.

This passage from “A white Heron”, by Sarah Orne Jewett, details a short yet epic journey of a young girl, and it is done in an entertaining way. Jewett immediately familiarizes us with our protagonist, Sylvia, in the first paragraph, and our antagonist: the tree. However, this is a bit more creative, as the tree stands not only as an opponent, but as a surmountable object that can strengthen and inspire Sylvia as she climbs it. This “old pine” is described as massive, to the point where it, “towered above them all and made a landmark for sea and shore miles and miles away.” (Line 8). This kind of description shows the reader how impressive and majestic this tree is, as it puts a vivid picture in the reader’s mind as something that is not only unrivaled in terms of altitude, but it can also be seen from the sea, which highlights its stature as a wholly independent object.

She also uses sensory language to convey a mood and give her readers a sense of how she actually felt both internally and externally at that time. “She did not stop to ask is it were not a monstrous joy that held her. A clear and exalted perception enabled her to dismiss the suggestion as trivial.” (Chopin 2) This is an example of a part in Chopin 's short story, The Story of an Hour, that gave her readers a sense of what she was actually feeling in the moment.

I wasn’t thinking of how I was to save him, I just knew I had to try my absolute best. “Rudy, wait!” She was calling to me from quite a distance behind.
