In his novel, The Road, author Cormac McCarthy illustrates the good and bad within the world. McCarthy supports this illustration through the use of imagery, symbolism, and connotative diction.

Paul Virilio once stated, “Writing is not possible without images. Yet, images don’t have to be descriptive; they can be concepts.” Author’s use descriptive language to create a picture in the reader 's mind. In the stories Canyons by Gray Paulsen and “The Treasure of Lemon Brown” by Walter Dean Myers, the author uses figurative language to develop the mood of the characters and setting. In “The Treasure of Lemon Brown,” the author uses figurative language to develop the mood of the passage and characters. In the story, the author describes the characters using personification by saying “Lemon Brown squeezed Greg’s hand into his own gnarled fist.” This helps the reader show that Lemon Brown is anxious because he is squeezing Greg’s hand

Pathos “means to persuade an audience by appealing to their emotions” (Bernanke, 2010). The language allowed for pathos as it was emotive, seen through the rhetorical questions, which reflected the vulnerability, sensitivity and fear of the author and thus, replicants as a whole. The overarching theme of a morally questionable issue enhances the personalisation of the reader. This is because the target audience was Replicants and thus, the theme speaks to the issues they are subjected to. Lastly, pathos is illustrated in the creative piece through the personalised stories, which aim to, along with the rhetorical questions, evoke an emotional
Literary devices like imagery, personification, and metaphor help to tell the tones throughout “The Veldt” and “Puppy” by going into detail. The author’s choice of words and how they use these words helps to build the overall tone. The authors’ tone in both short stories relates and shows examples of good and bad parenting through literary devices, word choice, and theme. Literary devices that are used
Symbolism can use an object (like a tree of birds), or art, (like Melinda’s art project or Mr. Freeman's canvas) to represent an abstract idea. Laurie Halse Anderson uses symbolism to hint at a certain mood or emotion, rather than just blatantly saying it. So, the use of symbolism is important because it helps create meaning and emotion in a story. Symbolism makes a book fun to read, the symbolism produces a thought provoking work of art and it, (like in this book), adds meaning to seemingly unrelated objects and elicits emotions in the
Symbolism is used differently in both works, nevertheless symbolism is an important part in the two texts. Shirley Jackson uses dialogue throughout the story to provide the background information to inform the readers what's going on. Without this craft move the problem of the story would be hard to recognize. Suzanne Collins uses dramatic irony to provide the readers background information. Lastly, Jackson uses inner thinking to get the readers predicting.
Graphic novels that are formalistic are trying to figure out how things work and in a sense can relate back to our way of life. Animist comics believe in the “pure transparency of content” and intuition. Lastly, iconoclast “emphasizes the authenticity of human experience and honesty.” McCloud firmly believes that all of these types of comics can convey knowledge to the reader and benefit the world. For example formalist comics can be used for science, and classicist can be used for art and literature. McCloud believes that comics are beneficial because it gives the reader a better picture of what the author is trying to get across.
