"The women of Biong came out of their houses and watched us like outcasts or intruders in their village who would lead the enemy to them" (Deng et al. 61).
Quote 1 By Benson
"The sun was setting when the men came by carrying guns. I was taking care of goats outside our field of maize when people of different colors -- brown and white, not all black like us -- stared at me like cobras looking at mice" (Deng et al. 63).
Quote 2 by Benjamin
In the biography, "They Poured Fire On Us From The Sky" Benson Deng, Alephonsion Deng, and Benjamin Ajak use similes to create visual imagery as well as to build characterization to portray the memories that they experienced on their journey to find a safe place to call home.
IOP Presentation by Marzana Chowdhury
I will examine Benson Deng's, Alephonsion Deng's, and Benjamon Ajak's use of similes in my presentation to show how they build up characterization as well as visual imagery as the boys live their lives as refugees on a journey to find peace and safety.
Quote 4 by Alepho
"Family became so important to me. Without it I was like a tree alone in a desert" (Deng et al. 111).
quote 5 by Benson
"Thousands of people flowed into the river and disappeared like water poured into the sand of Sahara" (Deng et al. 139).
quote 6 by Benjamin
"My time in jail came back to me like a nightmare in the day. Beaten every morning. Sitting all day in the sun. Every evening a beating again" (Deng et al. 259).
