  • Example:

When you pass an abandoned mansion, do you see a creepy haunted house or an intriguing historical home? Your view of the mansion depends on its atmosphere—the mood surrounding it. The same can be said of a short story—a story’s mood influences the reader’s feelings about the story itself. In “The Scarlet Ibis,” James Hurst uses diction, point of view, and symbolism to create a mood of tragedy, sadness, and loss.

Lit. device: diction

Throughout the story, the author creates the mood through diction, a stylistic device. In the first paragraph, (pg.168) the narrator describes the flowers around his childhood home as “rotting brown magnolia petals” and “graveyard flowers”. He describes an abandoned bird’s nest as “an empty cradle.” Even the scent of the flower s that surround him is described as “speaking softly the names of our dead.” This complex description refers to the aspects of nature with words that remind the reader of death. Hurst is creating and atmosphere of approaching tragedy. Because the story revolves around the relationship between the narrator and his frail brother, Doodle, the mood makes the reader worry about Doodle’s future.

Direct quotations from paragraph one, pg.168.

Restate thesis in a fresh way.

In “The Scarlet ibis,” the author uses diction, point of view, and symbolism to create a gloomy, somber mood. Through diction, Hurst gives us an overwhelming sense that something sad is going to happen. Through point of view, we come to understand how the narrator’s conflicted feelings about his deceased brother have brought him grief and guilt. Finally, through symbolism, we see the tragic fate of fragile creatures in our harsh world. By presenting this complex relationship, James Hurst helps all readers better explore their own feelings of love and cruelty and about loyalty and loss.
