Outside reading week 7, post A

  • Sluggish(pg 269): Indisposed to action or exertion; lacking in energy; lazy; indolent.
  • Despised(pg 309): To regard with contempt or scorn; To dislike intensely; loathe; To regard as unworthy of one's interest or concern.
Figurative Speech
  • "The day passed, a poor, sluggish thing that departed almost gratefully as night took its place." This is personification because it gives human actions to an inanimate object.
  • "The book of lost things things has as much value to him as a rock to someone swimming." This is a simaly because it compares using like.
  • "Pieces of the crooked man fell like snow in winter." Another simaly.
  • "And in the darkness David closed his eyes, as all that was lost was found again."
