The effect of alliteration.

WALDEN-QNEE0N

I weathered some merry snow-storms, and spent some cheerful winter evenings by my fireside, while the snow whirled wildly without, and even the hooting of the owl was hushed.

What is the effect of the alliteration used in the preceding quote?

A

It creates a picture of the winter storm and the warmth surrounding the author

B

It forms the basis for a recurring motif that is seen throughout the excerpt

C

It proves that the author truly went through a year in the woods alone

D

It imitates the sounds that were heard when a snowstorm occurred

E

It conveys the desperation of one trapped during a winter storm
