Kenshi KobayashiInquiry #3Joyas VoladorasBrian Doyle’sJoyas Voladorasis an exceptionally deep essay that unleashes emotionfrom the reader. When I first read this work, I wasn’t fully able to grasp or understand whatDoyle was trying to convey—not until I reread the final paragraph very closely. There are severalways 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 fastspeed, Doyle creates a sort of sentimental feeling for the reader. “Consider for a moment thesehummingbirds who did not open their eyes again today,” He then names an endless list ofdifferent hummingbird species, and ends the paragraph with “each thunderous wild heart the sizeof an infant’s fingernail, each mad heart silent, a brilliant music stilled.” This gives us a feelingof strong pain.
