This is showing tone in the story is dark, scary and a tiny bit sad. This scene makes me feel sad for Doodle. What is happening is his brother leaving him in the rain, and since he cannot run, and he dies from this. This is ominous and freaky, and the person in the back is his brother leaving him alone out in the rain.
I really do not know how I feel about Doodle, he is a burden for the most part, but he is still my brother
I am trying to walk Brother! Please help me.
The words in this short story are very dark and creepy and are describing Doodle's death. At the end of the story, words like cruelty, death, guilt, and sadness are used to describe the feelings that the brother has, and about Doodle. This image shows Doodle laying dead.
The imagery throughout the story for me helps to convey who Doodle was and what others thought about him at the beginning of the story. The text says "He was born when I was six and was, from the outset, a disappointment. He seemed all head, with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old's man." This is displaying in my mind about how his brother describes him.
The style in this story is showing how the character is feeling from a narrator perspective. The brother, who is the narrator is feeling a lot of emotions throughout the story and feels guilt, sadness, and anger throughout. This metaphor that says "I did not know that pride is a wonderful, terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death."
Through theme, the author is trying to convey thoughts to the reader, or main ideas they want to get across. I think the author's theme is mysterious and creepy, but also some contradicting actions of kindness, so several different things are going on throughout the story. and they are able to convey that throughout the whole story. An example used is when the author explains the motivations of the brothers and then his brother teaching him to walk.
You can do it Doodle, you need to walk to go to school.
