  • Tone
  • William Armstrong, which is like tying a big tail on a small kite. Such a name sounds good only on a tombstone. They use foreshadowing that something bad is going to happen to Doodle
  • Imagery
  • Doodle is threatened by the narrator to be left if he doesn't learn how to walk because the narrator is embarrassed by him not learning how to walk.  That shows the theme of selfish pride, and that he only does it for himself.
  • "Limply, he fell backwards onto the earth. He had been bleeding from the mouth, and his neck and the front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red" the tone is set with a bad mood because of the terrible memories of the narrator.
  • Old Woman's swamp is the Narrators favorite place to go and he says its the only good thing in his rundown town. He takes Doodle and says that its beautiful and starts crying because of it. The use of imagery while describing the swamp paints a picture in the readers head
