Answer:

"Martha entered the illuminated ballroom and walked past the sea of faces, searching for Cal and his bright red coat." The "illuminated ballroom" and "bright red coat" are imagery, painting a picture in the reader's head of what Martha saw when she entered the ball, and what she was looking for. The "sea of faces" is synecdoche because the "faces" represent the individuals attending the ball.

Answer:

The albedo effect is an example of a positive feedback system. Polar ice caps reflect the sun's rays back into the atmosphere. However, as the Earth warms due to global climate change, the ice caps in the arctic melt. As the ice caps melt, less of the sun's rays are reflected into the atmosphere, and they are absorbed into the ocean instead. As a result, the ocean gets warmer, melting the ice caps further.

Question:

In the novel, The Things They Carried, by Tim O'Brien, how were the soldier's packs, and all the items in them, symbolic for their internal experiences in the Vietnam War? Please provide at least one example.

Answer:

Many of the soldiers carried weapons of death in their packs, such as guns, which were symbolic for how they were carrying the emotional burden of killing others amid the horrors of war. This imagery can symbolize that wherever the soldiers go, the burden of death is always on their shoulders - just like their backpacks.
