A different co-worker kills the older co-workers dog. Lennie was given a puppy and accidentally kills it. Curly’s (the son of the boss of the farm) wife likes other men not Curly; when she sees Lennie in the barn with his dead dog she flirts with him and he then snaps her neck. Lennie proceeded to run off into the woods where George then mercy kills him. It is wrong to kill anyone for the reasons of it violates the rights of that individual, it is morally wrong and illegal to take the life of a person, as well as it proves the lack of responsibility on the individual that assists the person being murdered.
The tone of this passage is very gloomy with the ways he describes how the wolf looked and felt. The tone is also depressing when he says, “he closed his eyes then could see her running in the mountains, running in the starlight”(McCarthy line 46), this point shows the wolf was innocent and never did wrong, which makes the impact of her death truly depressing. The mood of the passage is created by the past tense the author uses to describe each traumatic event that happened. The feeling I get while reading this is sad and mournful because the wolf not only meant a lot to the main character but to nature itself. Tone and mood are similar in meaning but they both help in expressing the impact the wolves death left on
One terrifying experience I’ve survived is, a bear attack. This summer I went to Wallowa Lake and had a bad experience with bears. We had left our coolers out that night, and the bears found them. We didn’t realize there were bears until we heard our coolers moving. The bears were eating our friends raisinets.
The animals died because Lennie was petting them too harshly because he isn’t aware of his own strength. When Lennie is inside the barn he realizes the puppy died, he blames the puppy for not being strong enough instead of blaming himself for not having control over his strenght. “And Lennie said softly to the puppy, ‘Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice. I didn’t bounce you hard.’ He bent the pup’s head up and looked in its face, and he said to it, ‘Now maybe George ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits, if he fin’s out you got killed.’ He scooped a little hollow and laid the puppy in it and covered it over with hay, out of sight; but he continued to stare at the mound he had made.
The story references the wolf in “Little Red Riding Hood”: “...the jaw and chin and cheeks slightly darkened, because he hadn 't shaved for a day or two, and the nose long and hawk-like, sniffing as if she were a treat he was going to gobble up...” (Oates 510). Arnold proved similar to the wolf as he also disguised himself. The subtle reference to “The Three Little Pigs” is noticed towards the end of the story when Arnold, or the wolf, tries to lure Connie out of the house: “This place you are now-inside your daddy 's house-is nothing but a
This is meaningful to WBNP because so much pollution could come from the plant and affect the ecosystem. This is important because Leopold would dislike this event. In "Thinking Like a Mountain," Leopold shot and killed a mother wolf and had an instant regret. In the article, Leopold states, "But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view" (Leopold 2). This is important because nature is like a canvas and no one should mess it up.
In The Wide Window, for example, he makes fun of the old wives’ tales of things like reading in the dark can ruin eyesight, or waiting to go in the water after eating. The main new character in this book is a widow that fears everything, for example never cooking anything on the stove for fear of it bursting into flames, or that the refrigerator will fall on her. Furthermore, the lake she lives on his inhabited by leeches that will eat humans if they smell food, meaning that if one goes into the water less than an hour after eating, the leeches will eat the person, eventually the ironic demise of the woman. This is a very dark, yet ironic take on old wives’ tales that also shows how willing Handler is to make fun of things that adults say. In fact, Handler himself talks about becoming suspicious of the phrases and proverbs that adults say to children, “and that to me feels like the journey of childhood, that you have many authority figures telling you that the world is one way, and you begin to suspect that the world is another way and your own mind and your own morality are guiding you on this path in a world where everyone else seems lost.
Having no neighbors and living in a big castle can cause fear in visitors because they could get lost. On the way to the castle, Jonathan gets attacked by wolves. According to Stoker, “ There were dark, rolling clouds overhead, and in the air the heavy, oppressive sense of thunder,” (Stoker 10) The atmosphere creates suspense for the reader because Jonathan is going to Dracula's house by himself and not aware of what can happen to him when he gets there. According to Stoker, “...but shivered and sweated as though after a runaway from sudden fright,” (Stoker 13). When Jonathan sees the wolves he gets frightens, the wolves are scary because Dracula, by Bram Stoker, has an atmosphere of fear.
'.” The boy obviously didn't want to go home because he didn't like his lifestyle because it was to boring and being out in the woods was an adventure to him that he didn't want to end.Also the boy said something that made the two men a little worried.”It's an awful thing to hear a strong, desperate, fat man scream incontinently in a cave at daybreak.I jumped up to see what the matter was. Red Chief was sitting on Bill's chest, with one hand twined in Bill's hair. In the other he had the sharp case-knife we used for slicing bacon; and he was industriously and realistically trying to take Bill's scalp, according to the sentence that had been pronounced upon him the evening before.”The men are afraid that the boy will do something dangerous to them but they know that he won't leave because he enjoys the woods to much but the men are still a little
A blinding blizzard whirled around their home which did not help the conditions because they were already getting attacked by wolves. Alma unselfishly made sure the horses were in the barn and safe. Another scenario that was person versus nature in the book, Time of the Wolves, was when the wolves smelt the weakness of Sarah and tried to attack them. Although Alma and her were supposedly safe in the house, they were not. The wolves tried to enter anyway they could have, going through windows and trying to get fresh meat.
