Dandelion Wine After reading Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury, I became more aware of the magic of summer and what it means to truly live. The novel gave me a new perspective of thee idea that life is like summer where you’re alive and feel free, but how it sadly doesn't last forever.

In the novel, Douglas strives to enjoy his summer and to live his life to its fullest.
Tone is The Foundation for “The Lottery” In literature, tone is often described as the attitude of the story. It is the method used by the author to add personality or emotion. Without tone, even the best-rounded characters can easily come across as flat. Tone is not simply style, diction, or setting, but instead is the tool that holds all of these pieces together. In, “The Lottery”, author Shirley Jackson’s use of tone not only leads the reader down a familiar easy path to follow, but also sets the stage for the climactic change in events that leaves the reader’s emotions spiraling out of control.

Furthermore, she describes the grass as "richly green" and "the flowers were blooming profusely."

Maybe it is the fact that stress was nonexistent, or it could have been the time spent with family. The sun and free time is a reward for hard work and at a young age, there may not be much work to be done. The poem written by John Tobias describes a youthful summer enjoyed with the company of watermelon.
She shows us that no only humans enjoy the summertime, but the littlest things that we don’t think about on a day-to-day basis feel the same way. Cicada’s are just like humans in that they enjoy the summer, and they show their happiness through verbal or non-verbal communication. Sappho is trying to portray that summertime is the best time of the year, and she does a great job of making the reader believe her. ^ Ball, Sir Robert S (1900). Elements of Astronomy.
