Neryssa Ureta AP English Language 17 September, 2017 “He wanted above all, like the old joke, to shove a marshmallow on a stick in the furnace, while the flapping pigeon-winged books died on the porch and lawn of the house.” Page 1 This is an example of an oxymoron which connects the specific bird to a book which both seem to die on the speaker's property which alludes to the acceptance of death in the viewpoint. “Later, going to sleep, he would feel the fiery smile still gripped by his face muscles, in the dark. It never went away, that. smile, it never ever went away, as long as he remembered. Page 1 The diction used in this description would allude to the frustration including the personality change which occured that wasn’t intended originally. “He . . . air-propelled train slid soundlessly down its lubricated flue in the earth and let him out with a great puff of warm air an to the cream-tiled escalator rising to the suburb.” Page 1 The narrator’s imagery can bring the concentration to surrounding environment to bring the senses of sound and touch around the reader in order to bring the plot in development with character and reader. “The autumn leaves blew over the moonlit pavement in such a way as to make the girl who was moving there seem fixed to a sliding walk, letting the motion of the wind and the leaves carry her forward.” Page 2 The metaphor used in this instance is to bring a comparision of two movements to bring an easier understanding of the description and is a foreshadow of the next event which will occur. “He felt she was walking in a circle about him, turning him end for end, shaking him quietly, and emptying his pockets, without once moving herself.” Page 2 The hyperbole which the narrator uses to describe his fear and insecurity of being self-evaluated bring character development of possibility of being an introvert. “I'm seventeen and I'm crazy.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
