He uses the words 'a young man and his girl', as to say that this could have happened to anyone. Morgan creates very violent images using his great word choice; 'ragged diamond', 'shattered plate glass' and 'broken window'. He uses onomatopoeia to add sound effects to the silent image in your head; 'shattered plate glass', 'bristling with fragments of glass' an 'spurts'. Also, Morgan uses contrast; 'spurts arterial blood On her wet-look white coat', which gives you an image of how deep red blood looks on a snowy white backround, and helps you imagin how dangerous and deadly the injury is. Morgan also uses contrast of the young couples emotions of 'surprise, shock and the beginning of pain' to the youths whose 'faces show no expression'.
You can use quotes in 2 different ways: 1. Separate quote: make your point and then back it up with a quotation.

In chapter two of The Woman In Black, Susan Hill contrasts the emotions of the leading character, Arthur Kipps, with the pathetic fallacy to subvert the gothic genre. She does this by creating a sense of adventure and inquisitiveness through Arthur Kipps but describing the scenery to be dull and dreary. She portrayed the atmosphere to be flooded with thick yellow fog that “chocked and blinded, smeared and stained” the people of London. Describing the fog to have human abilities is an example of personification as it’s giving the fog, a nonhuman, the capabilities that humans have. By using the words “chocked” and “blinded”, it reflects on how vulnerable and exposed the public are due to this sinister fog.
Throughout the poem First Born, the poet conveys the idea of anger and frustration about the despair over the death of the Aboriginal race. The use of the second person pronoun 'you' in the third stanza, is effectively use to incriminate the reader for destroying the nature of the land and the race of the Indigenous Aboriginals. In addition the use of personification is convey to create more imaginative effect of disappointment and frustration ,'Where are my first-born, said the brown land, sighing'. Jack Davis passion for Aboriginal cause was stated through the poem as he clearly reveals his tone of outrage of the devastating experience of the Aboriginal people. The poem 150 Years relates to the idea of passion as Jack Davis expresses his passion about educating and informing the present on how the white settlers impacted the Indigenous Aboriginals life.
“A Modest Proposal” “A Modest Proposal” was a satirical essay written by Jonathan Swift depicting the horrific conditions of Ireland and the lives of the Irish people in 1729 during the great famine. Swift portrays and attacks the cruel and unjust tyranny of Ireland by the English and mocks the Irish people at the same time. However, Swift's opposition is indirectly presented. Swift is able to do so by using the persona, irony, in order to expose the horrendous corruption and poverty that the Irish had to endure, and at the same time present them with realistic solutions to their miserable lives. The author uses satire to accomplish his objective because it is the most effective way to awake the people of Ireland into seeing their own corruption.
PARRA 2- homecoming In the Australian poem ‘Homecoming’ the author, Dawe uses vivid visual and aural poetic techniques to construct his ongoing attitudes of the war. The universal theme of moral outrage at the dehumanising aspects of the war can be seen by the repetition of particular words in the poem such as ‘them’ and ‘they’re’. Dawe chooses words which lack individuality ‘bagging’, ‘tagging’, ‘green plastic bag’ and categorises the dead soldiers into similar groups ‘curly heads’. This is done to provide a further insight into the journey by chronicling the repatriation of the Australian soldiers. Therefore journeys do not always involve an
Final Draft In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee uses imagery and diction to make the audience view Maycomb as a decrepit and poorly taken care of place. The author does this by using words to paint pictures in your head and using over exaggeration. Harper Lee uses words to paint the picture as Maycomb as an old town. The author does this by saying things such as “In rainy weather the streets turn to red slop” which implies that the streets are old fashion made and aren’t made of concrete like modern streets. Harper Lee also paints the picture of Maycomb as a hot place.

(3, cell1-3) The dark omens for things to come are shown in pale colors such as grey and brown before the incineration of literature and again the artist highlights classical books such as The Scarlet Letter, Moby Dick, The Fall of The House Of Usher, Hedda Gabbler (33, cell 2-4) Later on as Captain Beatty recounts the dark tale of how things became the way they are, the classic books are portrayed on a dark light to emphasize the captain’s negative point of view of literature in general. Hamlet, Trasure Island, Moby Dick, and Time Magazine are all bad to society according to Beatty and the artist uses dark greens, to pale greys in this dark picture. (47, cell 3) Then as Montag tries to review the books he has hidden, the background is portrayed in a soft lighter blue and I think it gives a contrast to Beatty’s negativity on books. Blue is soft color that brings tranquility and peace of mind with a solid ground to meditate. This time Guy is searching for a light for the dark world he realizes that he lives in.
Shelley draws from the characteristics of gothic fiction influenced by The Romantic Movement, through employing sinister connotations that forebode Victor’s downfall, “…the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out…” This portrays the reality that the value of creating life is unattainable, which is furthermore explored in Blade Runner, as Scott presents a world in which technology has eliminated the defining features of humanity. Shelley also alludes to The Promethean Myth and the symbolism of oppressing fire, “…the glimmer of the half-extinguished light…” to emphasise the danger of attaining knowledge beyond accepted boundaries. Shelley’s admonition of excessive knowledge is explored additionally within Blade Runner. Blade Runner is dominated by capitalism and social hierarchy, therefore mirroring the values of the 18th century context of Frankenstein. Scott, influenced by the gothic-novel features in Frankenstein, has employed the style of
