Don’t stop the ship from leaving the harbor just because you’re afraid of the adventures ahead. If you don’t take a risk you won’t achieve anything. “One doesn’t forego sleeping because of the possibility of nightmares” is an African proverb that demonstrates Kek’s emotional journey; take a risk even when there may be something you are afraid of ahead. Throughout part three of Home of the Brave, by Katherine Applegate, Kek takes a huge step forward in learning to sleep. He began making snowballs that held the key to belonging, he connected with the Gol, a lifesaving figure in his life, and become content with his immensely imminent loss. The sleeping aspect consists of realizing that he is not alone in this world, reuniting with Lou, and regaining hope that his mother may still come. The nightmare aspect consists of horrible heartbreak and remaining forever unforgiven.

Although the whole book had information on the Salem witch trials. The introduction, chapter 1 and 2 and the conclusion had information regarding the research needed
In the spring of 1692, Salem Massachusetts, the famous Salem Witch Trials begins after a group of girls claimed to be possessed by the devil and accused a group of women of witchcraft and using the so called “devil’s magic.” As the hysteria spread through the small colonies in Massachusetts a panic began to form as the innocent puritan lifestyle was threatened. In the end, 18 were sent to Salem’s Gallow Hill, and over 200 convicted of witchcraft, the known tradition of the Salem Witch Trials would undergo for years. The Salem Witch Trials grabbed American History by the neck and is not one of our most prideful moments.
The Salem Witch Trials affected many different villagers and their families. More than eighty people were accused of practicing witch craft and even accused of being witches.” Surely the devil had come to Salem in 1692. Young girls screaming and barking like a dog? Strange dances in the woods? This was behavior hardly becoming of virtuous teenage maidens. The town doctor was called onto the scene. After a thorough examination, he concluded quite simply the girls were bewitched. Now the task was clean. Whoever was responsible for this outrage must be brought to justice.” They believed the people had to be put under a curse to become a witch. Nobody knew why these young girls were acting weird but they needed an answer. These two girls could no longer be left alone by their selves without an adult or some type of guardian.
The horror story is a uniquely interactive genre. Its main objective is to make the reader feel something, whether that be fear, anxiety, suspense, or any combination thereof. These feelings are evoked with the use of a monster, depending on the story it can be an external source, like a vampire or werewolf, or it could be something inside one of the characters, something in their psyche. In her story, “The Grave”, P.D.Cacek utilizes the literary elements of symbolism, imagery, and point of view.
Fear can inhibit you from acting foolishly in the forthcoming. Additionally, horror alerts us of what may soon happen and restrains us from future affliction. By being set in the minds of others during these hair-raising situations, we learn to not go down the wrong path. By doing so, you avoid future misfortune. Nonetheless, fear alters our brain and crams it with horrific ideology. Dread can lead to insanity and causes you to become obsessed. Consternation can lead you to become so overly-obsessed that preposterous ideas begin raiding your head. Symbolism, irony, and figurative language are used in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Pit and the Pendulum”, and “The Masque of the Red Death” to delineate how dread deceives the protagonist's’ mind and how obsession overcomes their mind.
The story portrays a lot of anger, greed, and fear. Edgar Allan Poe used these forms of nature to show that although nobody is perfect, they most important thing is to do the right thing, be kind, and courageous no matter what. By using supernatural, gloom and horror, revenge, and a castle this was the perfect setting for the horror story it became, using this to show that it is some humans nature to be selfish, fearful, or powerful made readers understand the importance of the message Poe was trying to depict. Always doing the right
Also, the last cause of the Salem Witch Trial was the lack of knowledge of the people. People was just accusing other people of witchcraft, but the accusers did not have an idea of what was going on in the town. For example in Document A says “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live” but the people really did not know who was a witch and who was not a witch. This is lack of knowledge because that was not coming for the Bible or something it was just a version of King James, Puritans let other influence their beliefs and did not give a good knowledge about witchcraft. Other example is in Document B when it talks about all the things that happened and that all of that according to the Puritans was “Witchery” that was lack of knowledge because people really did not know what was happening. People was just finding a reason for their bad luck. Because the people did not find a good reason, their beliefs came out and people started thinking about the witchcraft in Salem.

In the musical “Little Shop of Horrors,” Davis Weaver plays the antagonist role of Orin Scrivello, the cringey, sadistic dentist and abusive boyfriend of Audrey. I was particularly impressed with Weaver’s versatility as an actor, being that he plays five different roles throughout the musical. Additionally, Weaver’s various vocal tones, postures, facial expressions, tactics, movements and gestures, and use of props effectively reveals Orin’s superobjective and allows Weaver to be as believable as this character possibly can be given the circumstances.
Is Sherlock Holmes doing what's best for the people of London or is he above the law in his own way?

A good aspect used in the movie was character portrayal. Each character in the movie brought a new, different piece to the story. This made the movie more effectively entertaining because, even if there are characters that aren't necessarily likeable or nice, they are still portrayed in a way that puts a smile on the viewer's face. One example of this is Audrey’s boyfriend, Orin. While Orin is a horrible guy who does terrible things not only to his girlfriend but his patients, he’s portrayed in a comical manner when shown on screen. For example there’s a scene where Seymour is in Orin’s dentist chair Before starting, Orin says, “I'm gonna want some gas for this.” to which Seymour,relieved,replies “Oh, thank God. I thought you weren't gonna use any.” only for Orin to laugh and exclaim, “Oh, the gas isn't for you Seymour, it's for me. You see, I wanna really enjoy this.”
During the early and mid-1800s, Edgar Allan Poe was the master of horror and suspense literature (Cestre). One of Poe’s most recognized themes of his works includes “his cultivation of mystery and the macabre” (Cestre), along with Romanticism, the occult, and the satanic (Cestre). In order to write such cryptic and morose stories, Poe uses his “idealism and musical gift as a poet, his dramatic art as a storyteller” (Cestre), and craft storylines from his own dreams (Cestre). These themes are often expressed in Poe’s writing (Cestre). Poe expresses the theme of mourning a loved one and how tortured one’s soul can become from both loss of close figures in a person’s life and subtle disturbances during one’s weakest emotional state (Poe, “Edgar” Allan). In “The Raven,” Poe utilizes a rhyme scheme, repetition, personification, and imagery to establish and express the mournful theme of the main
“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality”-Edgar Allan Poe. All great horror stories represent that quote. There is one story that does not. “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs is not a horror story because there is not a monster, it is not believable, and it does not have a creepy setting.
