The word choice and stylistic devices used in the poem allows the reader to see his attitude toward the shark and forming the tone. The poet immediately describes the shark to be a rock and how s/he was shocked that it was a large shark when saying, “Is a thing that happened once (too often) to me. /But not too often- though enough.”. The unclearness of these lines can show how when first seeing the shark s/he was so shocked and full of fear that they were unable to express themselves clearly of how s/he was feeling. Although it was a fearful experience was still a positive and a once in a life time experience when saying, “I count as gain”.
“How does David Lean, Director of Great Expectations, build an ominous atmosphere and create suspense in the opening scenes? I will be looking at the mixture of devices Lean uses to build the atmosphere that he has in the few opening scenes of the movie. In the second scene, Pip is pictured running across a path beside the ocean. As he is running there are a few things that Lean has done to create, I wouldn’t say ominous, but a distressing air. For example, the only noise that is heard while he is running is the sounds of the howling winds ands the birds, in all likelihood seagulls.
Golding uses a beast that resonates in each boys head as a symbol for their growing insanity. As a few boys claim that a beast roams the island, everyone develops a fear and ferocity deep in their minds. “Within the diamond haze of the beach something dark was fumbling along. Ralph saw it first, and watched until the intentness of his gaze drew all eyes that way. Then the creature stepped from mirage onto clear sand, and they saw that the darkness was not all shadow but mostly clothing.
After this it cuts to a long pan shot of Chrissy and this boy chasing her along the sea front. This also helps to show the isolation in this film. The shot then cuts to Chrissy swimming in the water. The sun starts to rise and we see the first presence of yellow in the film. Yellow is important as in nature yellow is very hazardous, and any animal displaying yellow is often seen as dangerous.
Similarly to Tom Brennan, this leads him to face immense psychological barriers such as schizophrenia, fear and antisocialism, which accordingly breeds his hatred and hinders his transition to adapt to his new world. The high angle shot belittles him within his dark prison cell, and the panorama shot of the penitentiary evokes his immense suffering and the loss of his sense of identity. Additionally, the nondiegetic crescendo of adrenaline-inducing instrumentals creates a chaotic atmosphere which effectively exudes the inner agonies of a broken man who is left with nothing. In such ways, the initial stages of the film evince the protagonist’s unwillingness to accept his new world and conveys his refusal to seek companionship. Comparably to The story of Tom Brennan whereby the protagonist fails to adapt to his new paradigm due to immense social and emotional barriers, Norman Jewison’s biographical film The Hurricane demonstrates that coming in terms with inner fear and anxiety allows one to overcome the emotional barriers and enter into a new world that affords a greater self.
The Most Dangerous Game Alternative Ending The wind howled in Rainsford’s ears as he plunged downward. Barks of Zaroff’s hunting dogs, angered by the escape their quarry had made, were louder than the sounds of the waves and wind, adding to the song of noise. Despite not being able to see any deathly sharp rocks in the area below, the dreaded chance that he might land on one was huinting him.

A sign of fear runs through the minds of the boys, being a sign of the myth that a Beast might be prowling the island. Even though the little boys are panicked, the older boys make an effort to reassure the group that there is no Beast on the island. The older boys say that the boy`s vision was only due to hallucination. Golding suggests that their own sense of fear is the greatest danger to these boys. It is fear over a snake that causes the younger boys to panic and to exaggerate the dangers on the island, causing disorder and commotion.
This short story includes well written suspense by using iron, cliffhangers, and eerily creepy descriptions. Irony is a fantastic way to grab a reader’s attention. Connell does a wonderful job of including an abundance of plot turning suspense scenes in “The Most Dangerous Game.” At the beginning of this short story, Rainsford falls off of his boat, creating situational irony. Connell writes, “… a short, hoarse cry came from his lips as he realized he had reached too far and had lost his balance” (7). The reader now worries for Rainsford’s life, making him or her want to read further to discover Rainford’s fate.
Isaac Lee Period 2 A Deadly Song As Odysseus was approaching the dreaded island of the sirens he is keen on protecting his men from the voices of the terrible beasts. The sirens were monsters that could lull any soul into coming upon their island by their beautiful song but only to devour that unfortunate person which is slightly ironic because signs of death were all around the sirens yet their song is too powerful. In the Homer’s epic poem the “Odyssey” and Margaret Atwood’s poem the “Siren Song” the sirens are described similarly and differently using tone, point of view and various poetic devices. The tone of the “Odyssey” is rather ominous and also a little sad while in “Siren Song”. The tone is melancholy and is rings of sadness and boredom.
