He-y, Come on Ou-t!
By: Shinichi Hoshi


Literary Devices
We think there are two possible themes and they are:

We need to take care of our Earth and stop polluting. Whatever we do to the Earth, will come back and effect us in the future.
Karma. What goes around, comes around
The story "He-y Come on Ou-t!" starts off with the ending of a typhoon. The typhoon didn't cause a lot of damage except a shrine, which is something dedicated to an important figure, being taken away by a land slide from a near by mountain. Under it was a hole.
Trigger Incident
When the village people start investigating the hole, starting with one of the villagers throwing a small pebble in then yelling into the hole "Hey-y come on ou-t!", they discover that it's so deep that they can't even find a bottom to it. They tried throwing things into, using rope and even having a scientist use a special sound machine to see in they could find out how deep it was. After deciding that it was incredibly deep and some saying it was bottom less, the villagers all started throwing things into. Girls threw in their diaries, people threw in their trash, criminals threw in weapons and evidence, even nuclear waste was thrown in.
At the end of the story you see that the village has now started to grown into a city. And because of the growth of the village new buildings are being put in including a large building. On the top of that building a construction worker is working one day and get hit with a small pebble then hears someone from above saying "He-y come on ou-t!" This is the climax because it brings to back to remembering that the rock was the first thing thrown in and the man who first threw it in yelled into the hole. And if that fell out of the sk then you know everything else thrown in will be coming out too. This part is also the end of the story and it ends with suspense, making it the most exciting part.
Falling Action
We decided there was no falling action. The story ended with the climax. There was no solution to what had, or was about to happen in the story.

When they threw things into the hole, they thought it was a cure to all of their problems, and a way to get rid of everything. It turns out at the end of the story all the things that the town had threw in, started coming back again. This is ironic because at the start the hole was thier solution. Then at the end everything was going to fall out and no one thought it would happen. They thought it was a cure to their problems.
There are two examples of foreshadowing. The first being when a man was the first person to say "Hey, come on out." and a man with him then says "You might bring down a curse on us. Lay off." The second example being at the very end, when the construction worker hears "Hey, come on out." and gets hit by a pebble, and those were the first two things that were thrown into the hole. These are examples of foreshadowing because those being the first two things thrown in, the rest that were thrown in must be coming out.
Omniscient. The story is told in third person
The story takes place in a small Japanese village. This story happens in present time.
An example of imagery is; "The typhoon had passed and the sky was a gorgeous blue. Even a certain village not far from the city had suffered damage. A little distance from the village and near the mountains, a small shrine had been swept away by a landslide." This is describing exactly where the setting takes place, and you can picture an exact place in your head.
There are so few literary devices in this story because the story is short and gets straight to the point. It's theme becomes clear early on in the story therefore the author didn't need to use literary devices to prove his point or further explain what the theme is
What do you think the theme is?
The conflict in the story is man v.s nature. In the end they will all have to deal with the environment after all the garbage they threw into the hole comes out.
The shrine that is mentioned at the start of the story is symbolism.
The dialogue in this short story was that it had people talking to each other. They had conversations.
