Snakes can deliberately dislocate or unhinge their jaws to swallow something exceptionally large, we are informed that this snake was in the process of doing this when it was killed, 'his jaw unhinged and his grin crooked', the expression left on his face is described as a 'grin', this is the 'evil version' of smile, and it interacts well with 'crooked'. 'Tongue a rose-coloured arrow', this is juxtaposed (when two things which you wouldn't normally expect, are placed side by side), this helps to give a large contrast between the properties of the snakes body, ('rose' - beautiful and colourful, 'arrow' -deadly and ugly angular shape).

In D.H. Lawrence's, "The Rocking-Horse Winner," the relationship between the protagonist, Paul and his mother is not ideal at all.
She never really gives her children a chance because she is more concerned with herself and she always feels negativity towards them. Her obsession with money and the status it would provide for her completely, it takes control of her emotions and her ability to create a stable and healthy relationship between her and Paul. Her uncontrollable cravings for money create an "anxiety in the house" and a constant whispering that "there must be more money" (592). The constant whispering symbolizes the mothers need for money and the unhealthy environment she has created for her children.
