A Literary Element Analysis:Setting and Style

Table of Contents

The underwater setting for Eric Grace’s Sharks is naturally appropriate for this informational piece of literature. In the onset of the book, the photographs of the sharks in their natural habitats set a tone for the book that continually enhances the fascinating text. This effective establishment of setting transports readers to the deep blue world of the shark.

Furthermore, the setting creates a constant mood adding suspense throughout the book. For example accompanied by a powerful photograph of the fearsome great white, Grace writes “The great white shark is suspended motionless in the gloomy water…Its powerful body is twice the length of the diver who faces it, eye to eye, with only a wall of clear plastic between them” (6). This vivid language alone would efficiently captivate readers, however, when hand in hand with such dramatic photographs, a life-like setting is established, drawing the reader into a world far beyond and below the water’s surface.

With scientific, yet comprehensive language, this appropriate style generates a necessary respect for the author and his reputable research. Though kid-friendly, the language demonstrates an appropriate manner for discussing scientific knowledge. Grace gently introduces the jargon that esteemed scientists use to describe the tendencies of these marvelous underwater creatures by including comprehensive definitions of terms scattered throughout the book.

“Designed like underwater flying machines, sharks are built to cruise effortless through the seas. Although capable of bursts of speed up to 30 miles per hour, sharks usually swim at a more leisurely pace over long distances” (Grace, 14).
