Text Preview Passage 1
In passage number one King gives us a clear image of what the main character sees as the devil. Everyone has their own idea of what the devil looks like. Some think he is red wit horns, ugly, and scary. But king gives us a unique image, “His face was long and pale. His black hair was combed tight against his skull and parted with rigorous care on the left side of his narrow head. He was very tall.

With this description, King gives us a clue that this man is in fact the devil. King gives him these eyes that resemble fire which is associated with hell. Another image that he gives the reader is when he uses... Show More
