the rainy mountin (could not find it in book choices)

In this excerpt from The Way to Rainy Mountain, the author uses language that depicts the sun as a human.

He was very angry…he threw the ring and it did what he told it to do; it struck the woman and killed her, and then the sun’s child was all alone.

What is the effect of this language?

  • It conveys a tone of fantasy.

  • It creates a peaceful mood.
  • It supports a friendly tone.

  • It develops an atmosphere of chaos.

Based upon this very short excerpt, I'd say it develops an atmosphere of chaos.
