Tessie hutchinson was in the center of a cleared space by now, and she held her hands out desperately as the villagers moved in on her. “it isn’t fair,” she said. a stone hit her on the side of the head. old man warner was saying, “come on, come on, everyone.” steve adams was in the front of the crowd of villagers, with mrs. graves beside him.
“it isn’t fair, it isn’t right,” mrs. hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her.
the above passage is an example of shirley jackson’s use of
I think Suspense is the answer
The above passage is an example of Shirley Jackson’s use of SUSPENSE.
Suspense is a literary device that aims to evoke within the reader tension or an intense feeling while waiting for the outcome a story, a scene or a chapter, usually, the feeling is accompanied with the idea that something risky and dangerous is about to happen. This type of literary device intends to keep the reader interested in the story.
The passage is a great example of this since the author depicts a scene in which the Tessie is in a dangerous situation, her integrity is at risk, and the excerpt ends with a "then they were upon her", leaving the reader with a feeling of tension (something dangerous will happen) and curiosity to know what happened to the girl: did they catch her? did they hurt her? was she able to fight back? did she make it out alive?
- "these rights are natural and god-given to all men equally." (i disagree cuz i kind of think it's 'a' but who knows.)
1. this would be first person. it would be like "i walked home from school today" they are the narrator of the story and is a character as well.
2. first person because they used the word "i" in the quote.
3. i'm really not sure about this one i'm really sorry i never read it so i wouldn't know how to answer it.
4. it would be character vs. society because everyone he meets there is always a conflict of some sort because he's stuck in his daydream.
5. it would be sadness at the loss of youth because the title itself tells us it's about age so it couldn't be about regret. and the tone just sounds sad, not angry.
i hope this !mark me brainliest
