Style and Theme
William 'Doodle' Armstrong
The author uses descriptive words in the following sentences:“ found him huddled beneath a red nightshade bush beside the road.” “ He was sitting on the ground, his face buried in his arms, which were resting on his drawn-up knees.” “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 narrator speaks in a present tone using descriptive words and imagery that sound like the theme is about Doodle’s death.
