Kenshi Kobayashi Inquiry #3 Joyas Voladoras Brian Doyle’s Joyas Voladoras is an exceptionally deep essay that unleashes emotion from the reader. When I first read this work, I wasn’t fully able to grasp or understand what Doyle was trying to convey—not until I reread the final paragraph very closely. There are several ways the author hinted to a deeper meaning through the use of words and writing techniques. In describing the hummingbird’s consequences of being able to fly at an alarmingly fast speed, Doyle creates a sort of sentimental feeling for the reader. “Consider for a moment these hummingbirds who did not open their eyes again today,” He then names an endless list of different hummingbird species, and ends the paragraph with “each thunderous wild heart the size of an infant’s fingernail, each mad heart silent, a brilliant music stilled.” This gives us a feeling of strong pain.
