  • Grandpa
  • Aunt Diane
  • Scarlet Ibis
  • Word Choice
  • "The last graveyard flowers were blooming, and their smell drifted across the cotton field and through every room of our house, speaking softy the names of our dead."
  • Twist Project by: Ashley Weidinger
  • Imagery
  • Please don't leave me!!!
  • The story starts off with a descriptive paragraph that sets the tone of the story. The author uses very dark and scary words to set a fearful and gloomy scene.  Hurst uses words like dead, bleeding tree, rotting brown magnolia petals, epmty cradle, and speaking softly the names of our dead.
  • Style
  • It was in the clove of the seasons, summer was dead but autumn had not yet been born
  • The word choice was very dark and rude. They used a lot of negatives words in general and towards Doodle and his issues from birth. The words were selected carefully though, to make the story more deep in meaning and understanding. I think that the author did a great job selecting the words considering the story, theme, and mood.
  • Theme
  • Throughout the story the imagery was very intense. The author told with great detail about the story and what was going on.
  • The style of the story is a Narrative because the person telling the story is Doodle's older brother. When he is telling the story he is telling as a flashback not as it is happening.
  • The theme for the story was very scary and dark. The author did a great job telling the story and the details for the scenes.
