The Great Wide Sea

M. H. Herlong project by cristian rivera and period 9

Author's style

The point of view is 1st person its easily seen since it uses I and my such words that you would say when talking about your self it also has alot of figurative language like on page 139 when Ben says "I stood frozen for long enough to die." Theres other things like what the author was trying to do which is to entertain the reader with the knowledge of how three brothers could survive on they're own. Imagery is great there is the time with the storm its great like on page 141 it says "I was alone in the dark in the storm. The boat rode up the back of the wave and crashed down onto the rough sandy beach.
