they can finnally get rid of their old cook, Helosie Hartley needs a new cook to replace his drunk cook, Heloise Setting Robbins and Harley Office Vivienne's House Theme 'Things aren't always as they seem' Tone Anticipation Suspenseful Characterization Vivenne- Flat, Static Rafford Townsend- Flat, Static Hartly- Round, Static Helosie- Flat, Static Hartley's Wife- Flat, Static Detective- Flat, Static Point of View 1st Person Mood Anticipatoin- To-morrow," he said, with a forefinger of reminder uplifted.

"To-morrow," she repeated with a smile of truth and candour.

Suspense - His wife screamed.

Happiness- The dark-haired woman screamed again- the joyful scream of a well-beloved and petted woman.

Forshadowing "To-night," he said, resolutely. "I will send her away to-night."

She looked into his eyes with a sweet, sincere light in her own. Hartley could scarcely believe that her sur- render was true, it was so swift and complete.

Figurative Language man vs. man A man, named Hartly, hires a detective to obtain the address of a women who fits his needs. Hartly finds the woman at her home and he begins the conversation with what seems to be a yerning for her. This is when she tells him that that there is another, Rafford Townsend. Hartly convincese the young girl, Vivienne, that he should come home with him and not the other man. She complies but tells him the the other women must not be there as well. Hartly agrees and goes home straight away to tell his wife. She shouted with joy. She was very exsited to be able to get rid of their old drunk cook, Helosie, for a brand new one. In the end all was well, and everything came together with and unexpected ending. the author chose to use first person point of view so that the ending would be a surprise to the reader Irony City of Floral- hurst on a cool winter night The quote " i've found where she lives," indicates that it is first person bcause it uses "I". The quote " I came here to see a plumber about the bathroom connections," also shows that the story is in first person bcause it again uses the word "I". Situational Irony - it is situational because the author makes you think that it is a love story, but in the end its just a man trying to hire a new cook. "Townsend, looking like a Spanish grandee in his light tweeds, Panama hat and curling black mustache." Here and there a pale rubber plant peeped from the miscellaneous mass, as if wondering to what kingdom it belonged -- vegetable, animal or artificial.
this is an example of personification. hahaha Plot Summary Hartly needed a new cook a new cook, that could please him and his wife more then Helosie did. Harlty needs to find a women who can fit his needs. Hartly goes to a detetive to find adress of the women and then
goes to speak with her. Vivienne revelas that their is another
man who wants her also. (Some literary experts would argue that the climax would actually be the resoluction/denouemnt; When the author reveals that Vivienne is just a cook, and not a mistress.) Hartly convinces Vivienne to come home with him. Hartly and his wife become extremely happy because they finally have a pleasing cook, and can get rid of Helosie. "First person point of view is a point of view in which an "I" or "we" serves as the narrator of a piece of fiction. The narrator may be a minor character, observing the action, as the character Nick does in The Great Gatsby, or the main protagonist of the story, such as Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye. In addition, a first-person narrator may be reliable or unreliable."

irony involving a situation in which actions have an effect that is opposite from what was intended, so that the outcome is contrary to what was expected. Example- The audience assumes that Vivienne is Hartley's
"intrest", but is extremely surprized
when the author reveals the truth; That Vivienne is only a cook! Simile A flat character is a minor character. a literary or dramatic character who undergoes little or no inner change; a character who does not grow or develop.
