Stephen king once said “Description begins in the writer's imagination, but should finish in the reader's.” That is the importance of descriptive language. Descriptive language is one reason books are so popular. It helps the reader connect with the character and helps make the story so good. It grabs your mind, and puts it in the room with the characters.
One example is when they bring the Veldt Room to life by all of the mechanics that show the sound, smell, and even temperature. “The hot straw smell of lion grass, the cool green smell of the hidden water hole, the great rusty smell of animals, the smell of dust like a red paprika in the hot air. And now the sounds: the thump of distant antelope feet on grassy sod, the papery rustling of vultures.” This shows how realistic everything is and that you don’t have to leave your house to get an experience of an African Dessert, The way Bradbury appeals to all of the senses to give the reader the experience as if there standing next to George in the African desert, he gives something that is till and a place, a life and makes it seem so much more alive than it is. Bradbury uses the phrase “the papery rustling of vultures.”
Throughout the book, the author does this many times to describe things that are important to the story. One example of how the author does a good job of using descriptive language is when he describes the monsters that are in the story. When describing one of these monsters, he says, “I didn’t ponder that very long, though, because then I noticed his body . . . or bodies.
The usage of short sentences gets the point across faster and keeps the reader engaged with the story. It also creates a feeling of realism that the reader is involved in the scene and gives them a feeling that something negative is going to happen. uThe setting also gives an atmosphere of suspense when they are walking down the streets, past the wax dummies shop “Do you suppose if we screamed they’d do anything?” The characters
The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father.
In the final section of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the audience is privileged to detailed descriptions of nature as Sir Gawain travels to his meeting with the Green Knight. Why does the poet include such descriptions? Through careful study of the text, it is apparent that these details about Gawain’s surroundings contribute to the suspense of this final section. All in all, the ominous tone of such descriptions followed by foreshadowing and affirmations of surrounding evil by various characters contributes to the suspense which is essential to the significance of the poem’s conclusion.
One of the examples is when Mrs. Hutchinson says “Thought we were going to have to start with you, Tessie” (2). This example shows mood because it gives an extra feeling to Tessie which makes you think of her as special. This is how she uses foreshadowing to create a dark, scary feeling. The setting is used to set the mood by either being dark or bright to create a mysterious or peaceful environment. In Jackson’s story, “The Lottery” she uses setting to create a very misleading story.
In the story “Sagittarius” by Greg Hrbek, there are descriptive phrases that set the mood. They are important because they give the reader an explanation of what's going on with the characters. They're also important because it gives a specific perspective to the reader and helps their imagination. The story is about a family that deals with a deformed child with four legs. The section of the story that stood out to me the most is when the father comes home to his son standing, even with his condition because it gives you the dad's opinion about his son,what his problem is, and it makes you feel a certain way about the character.
are all ways a writer can make a reader feel a certain mood. Setting and diction were used in these stories. It’s interesting how an author can change the way someone thinks about something by using one of these elements in their writing. If the character's in “Back Roads” never came across the fascinating river or statute, the reader would most likely be very bored with the story. And if the character in “A Winter’s Drive” never found the box he was looking for, there wouldn’t be an anxious feeling at all because what would the reader have to look forward to in the story?
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 ).
Bearing Guiltiness within The Poisonwood Bible Foreshadowing is a literary device many authors use to hint at future events containing influential and thematic material; and authors tend to introduce their major themes through foreshadowing in opening scenes or a prologue. Barbra Kingsolver’s novel, The Poisonwood Bible, follows this very trend. Orleanna Price, in the first chapter, describes her burden of guilt toward choices she has made and the death of the youngest of her four daughters, Ruth May. Throughout the story, you discover the guilt within each of the five women: Adah, Leah, Rachel, Orleanna, and Ruth May. Due to supporting implications within the opening chapter of The Poisonwood Bible, with continuing evidence throughout the novel, it can be concluded that guiltiness is a motif.
As it is seen in his short story, ¨August Heats,¨ the foreshadowing begins when, ¨A sudden impulse made me enter,¨ (source 2) which makes us(as the reader) think that James, (the main character/narrator) might be leading himself into something terribly wrong. This is just the begin of how the author influences
