Diction: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

-Dee Brown

Imagery: The Awakening
  • She looked into the distance, and the old terror flamed up for an instant, then sank again. Edna heard her father’s voice and her sister Margaret’s. She heard the barking of an old dog that was chained to the sycamore tree. The spurs of the cavalry officer as he walked across the porch. There was the hum of bees, and the musky odor of pinks filled the air.

-Kate Chopin

detail samuel johnson

-Thomas Babington Macaulay

Detail: “Samuel Johnson”

syntax the black cat
Syntax: “The Black Cat”

-Edgar Allen Poe

tone civilian
Tone: “Civilian”

Until all these demands were met, the speaker said he considered himself in a state of unconditional war with the United States government.

I laughed out loud.

-Tobias Wolff, “Civilian”
