ouch... my eye hurts
Rising Action "irony"
I like to study Mathematics
The exposition occurs in book one of The Chosen on the baseball field. The Hasidic and Orthodox Jews are playing a friendly baseball games, however, it turns into a war and leads to Reuven getting hit in the eye with the ball by Danny. The literary device onomatopoeia is demonstrated when using the sound "pow".
It's okay Reuven. My dad is just strict, so he wants to meet you.
Reuven's baseball coach, Mr. Galanter, takes Reuven to the hospital because of the baseball incident. While at the hospital Reuven has a flashback of when he was at home and healthy. He then thinks of his father, David Malter, as he said once, "You don't know how fourtunate you are until you become unfortunate. "
Reuven this is my dad, Rev Saunders. Dad this is my friend, Reuven.
Danny visits Reuven in the hospital because he feels guilty for hurting him. This scene demonstrates the rising action as Reuven and Danny's unlikely relationship begins. A literary device displayed is irony. It occurs when Danny is forced to become a Rabbi by his father but wants to study psychology instead, and Reuven wants to become a Rabbi but his father would like him to become a mathematician.
That's nice. I like to study psychology, but my father only wants me to study my religion to become the future Rabbi.
Since Danny's father is strict, he wants to meet all of Danny's friends, especially if they are from a different sect. Reuven and Danny walk to Danny's house which is also the church. Reuven feels out of place since he is not wearing the proper clothes and because everyone's giving him looks.
Internal conflict is demonstated as Danny and Reuven go to Reb Saunders' Shabbat. Danny also confesses he does not want to become Rabbi but then gets an insight and soon realizes it is important.
