Divergent Teen Fiction Metaphors are the major literary technique in "The Fault in Our Stars." Augustus puts cigarettes in his mouth, but doesn't light them because he says it is a metaphor. He puts the killer in his mouth, but doesn't give it the power to kill him. Hazel sees the metaphors that Augustus would have seen after he passes away. “That’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt” “I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once.” “The world is not a wish- granting factory.” This quote describes Hazel because she goes through so much pain, along with Augustus. Her cancer takes everything out of her, but she keeps going. This quote displays Hazel’s strength as she walks through her battle with cancer. In this quote, Hazel is talking about how she falls in love with Augustus. Hazel had never let someone besides her family into her life because she did not want to “be the grenade in their life,” meaning she did not want them to get hurt when she passed away. She let Gus in and fell in love with him showing that she had let her walls down. This shows maturity in Hazel because she is starting to believe that she can’t keep herself from the people that love her. This quote displays the turmoil and agony that Hazel and Augustus have to go through while battling cancer. It presents to the reader what they have most likely never experienced. Throughout the book, the author talks about “cancer perks” which were things they got for having cancer, but this quote shows that you cannot have everything in live. Hazel’s courage is shown in this quote. Hazel Grace Lancaster is the main character in "The Fault in Our Stars." She is diagnosed with Thyroid cancer that has also spread to a tumor in her lungs. She has to have her lungs drained regularly, take special medicine and use an oxygen tank to survive daily. She is important to the story because it is about her learning to love Augustus Walters, who also has cancer. The story is about wanting to leave behind your legacy, and caring for those you care about. Hazel matures during the story, and learns about the impact you have on people, and the impact people can leave on you. This picture represents the novel because it displays Hazel and Augustus as star-crossed loves, which they were. It displays the great love they had for each other throughout the entirety of the novel. It shows the impact that they had on each other's lives, in addition to the impact they had on other's lives as well. You can also tell from the picture the effect that cancer had on the both of them By John Green
