I choose the black dot as the symbol because it symbolism a painful death. It symbolism a painful death because who ever get the black dot with be killed my stones.
TONE AND THEME
My images is on line 41 which says "rounded-faced jovial man'' . I choose this line because it was one of the better lines to describe something so you could get an image of what the author said in your head.
For my figure of speech I choose line 119. Line 119 says "pack of crazy fools" , this line / phrase is a Buzzword or it can also be a pun. The reason this phrase is a buzzword is because its a phase that has little meaning but becomes popular during a specific time.
For the tone I choose horror because the whole story was foreshadowing about the death at the end but we all didnt know how painful the death would have been. For theme I picked the unpredictability of mob behavior because at the beginning of the story everyone was nice and kind but when everyone found out who had the black dot they all turned and became mean and stoned that person to death.
