The Cay

  

by Theodore Taylor

Analysis: Writing Style

Journalistic

Theodore Taylor started writing for newspapers when he was only 13, and his journalistic flair comes through in the pages of The Cay. His descriptions of Willemstad and the cay in Chapters 1 and 2 are vivid and lifelike. He recounts every bit of action – from torpedoes to hurricanes – clearly and astutely so as not to lose any detail.
