Life After High School Oates uses literary elements to make a social commentary on mans’ basic struggle for survival by writing on how all problems derive from relationships. In the story Life After High School, Zachery Graff exemplifies how a “normal boy” with a high IQ ends up suicidal because he loves people who don’t accept his love. “…The popular, confident, good looking girls, club officers, prom queens, cheerleaders like Sunny Burhman and her friends, tossed out indiscriminately, for that was the style” (Page 574). One of the literary terms that best describes this quote would be a stereotypical tone.
