    ok so i was told to annotate an extract given to me by my teacher, and i'm a bit confused about the quote:
    "...your childish outcry has sent sleep to the devil for me"
    it does sound really simple but i just wanted some clarification towards what it means?? does it have anything to do with supernatural encounters?
    help please

    Well I haven't read the book so can't be sure, you should read the whole chapter for context. What I would infer is that it is a statement about insomnia, that the persons childish outcry cause this person the inability to sleep, thus her sleep has been sent to the devil (gotten rid of).
    Or, it could also be to do with nightmares and bad dreams, her sleep being sent to the devil could mean her sleep (nd thus her dreams) have.been haunted and plagued with sights of.hell and what not
