The Assignment | Liza Wiemer

“As I walk out of his room, the shock of his response morphs into fury and indignation, propelling me like a lit fuse burning through gunpowder.“ The tone of this sentence is angry because of the words the author uses to describe the character in that moment. Words like shock, fury, indignation, and gunpowder all speak to violently angry emotions. I feel sorry for emphathetic to the character, so that's the mood.

Of Mice and Men | Steinbeck

The title of “Of Mice and Men“ is an allusion to a Robert Burns' poem, which points out that the plans of mice and men often go awry. The author uses this allusion to foreshadow the events of the novel, cluing in the reader that some plan of the characters in the novel will go awry.

nylaaa in the book “ speak “ an allusion used in the book is “ the turkey floats in the sink, a ten pound turkey iceberg. A turkeyberg. I feel very much like the titanic “ this refers to an allusion because the scarcasm of what the builder of titanic said “ Not even GOD can sink this ship “ but the sink did sink when it hit the iceberg.

Throwaway Girls | Andrea Contos

The literal meaning of “Throwaway“ is to throw something away from you. That is denotation. However, in this context, the connotation of “Throwaway“ means that these girls do not matter to society. They are “throwaway“ because we throw them away like we do trash.

kalexandre00 “ I don‘t know how I didn‘t notice the first time- water is as blue as his eyes.” The literal meaning of water is a transparent tasteless liquid. That is denotation. However, in this sentence, “water” is use to symbolize life. That is connotation. 8mo
MelRoc25 The connotation of transparent is a material or article that allows light to pass through. The denotation of transparent is being upfront or honest with someone. 6mo
