Storyboard Text

  • The Tone of "The Devil and Tom Walker" is mysterious, and eerie; Tom begins the story walking through very large weeds, to where he meets a strange character, which we soon learn is the Devil himself.
  • Some word choice I would use includes Lonely, Sketchy, Gloomy, and Dark; while describing his home after she leaves, he makes the home seem very jail-like and spooky.
  • "He scowled for a moment at Tom with a pair of great red eyes. 'What are you doing on my grounds?' said the black man with a hoarse voice."
  • The author uses very fluent imagery to help describe not only the settings of each event, but the feelings each character mat be feeling, which helps us better understand the story as a whole.
  • "The Devil and Tom Walker" shows us that taking the shortcut is not always a benefit, but may become a nuisance of what may come down the road.
  • Both themes of "The Devil and Tom Walker" and "The Crucible" relate to consciences of trying to take the shortcut. In Tom Walkers case, he found the devil trying to get home sooner. For John Proctor, he tried to quickly end the Salem trials by lying about being guilty, and was hung. In both cases bad came from trying to take the short way through a problem.
