You can feel the strong messages that Lois Lowry wanted to tell us of helping each other out and keeping your will and goal straight in your mind. It is a distinctive and exhilarating story with a unique setting and characters where you can still find connections and your own interpretations. Despite the stagnancy and predictability in some parts, the story itself is fairly enjoyable considering the interesting plot and the connection between the author’s life. The many themes; adventure, love, bravery, compassion and many more fascinate readers and is a highly recommendable book especially for those who have read the previous books in the
The Emalia-Desdemona relationship is an interesting and complicated one. At first glance, it might seem that Emalia serves as the jaded foil to Desdemona’s innocent naivety about love. However, a closer, sympathetic look at Emalia shows she has plenty of reasons to be as hardened as she has become. The role of Iago’s wife can’t be an easy one, and he is usually too concerned with revenge to pay much attention to her. He’s arguably one of the cruelest Shakespearean villains, and Emalia is just trying to survive unscathed.
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
Steinbeck’s ‘Of Mice and Men’ incorporates a myriad of development for the character of Curley’s Wife. Her character is often portrayed negatively and is openly disliked by the majority of the males. Typical of a piece set in 1930 America, she is treated unjustly as women were highly subservient to men. She is also the sole woman, hence this stimulates the audience to harness empathy for her through her solitude.
Othello believes his friend Lago over Desdemona his own wife. Instead of treating her fairly and the way she deserved he argues with her and ridicules her. Desdemona is a perfect example of a wife and Othello will not believe her because she is just a woman. Othello is easily convinced his wife is cheating and feels humiliated and therefore feels it is justified for him to smother her. When Othello states, “She turned to folly, and she was a whore” (5.2.134)
Since men do not understand women this way, they tend to be avoided. Men will be alone: “alone with his dreams, hopes, fears, love, vanity” (417). I think that being mysteries creates a way for a woman to be herself, for example, she can create or imagine the world that everything is in her favor without being understood by men is definitely an
On one hand, the first acts cruelly because of the pleasure he has from controlling and manipulating others. On the other, Daniel acts moved by his need to know who he is, but he eventually finds out that he is destined for great things. Finally, it is possible to state that George Eliot investigates three main institutions in Victorian era (education, marriage and occupation) to explore the possible roles of women and men in society. In fact, Eliot seems to understand that that gender, more than any other trait in human nature, is influenced by the environment one lives in.
This is clear that the love he has is for the notion of love as it turns into hate quickly. He eventually asks Viola to marry him when he finds out the ‘Cesario’s’ true identity. This is however after ‘he’ removes the male disguise. Through this play, the repeated and extensive deception use in love relationships presents the audience with awe-inspiring evidence backing the idea that deception is an aspect that is attached to love emotions. Although the audience can discount such relationships tainted by deception, such judgements end up being classified as misguided after close examination of the various reasons for using deception in romantic
Realism is a major theme in Gustave Flaubert’s, Madame Bovary. Flaubert’s minute notation to the physical world is what brings the book to life. By adding excessive detail to certain aspects of the book, the reader is able to picture these moments, making the novel all the more life-like. Although Flaubert does an outstanding job of providing the reader with details to convey the idea of realism, he may be giving too many details. There are several instances in the book where it feels as though Flaubert put too much thought into the details and perhaps confuses the reader with adjectives that may be unfamiliar to them.
Abigail is consumed by the idea that John Proctor loves her. She considers that John’s kind actions towards her are more than just lust. Her acknowledgement that it would be a sin for him to love another woman besides his wife reveals that she believes that John Proctor has such deep feelings for her, which are undeniable no matter how wrong it may be. Though Abigail appears to be caught up in her idea of their forbidden love, her romanticized obsession is not enough to prove that her actions are completely motivated by her obsession of
In conclusion, Before You Go is a great book with a great storyline that will keep the reader reading for hours. The storyline isn 't the only factor that created such a great book. The theme and mood also played a big role in creating the book. Even though the book is great, there was one flaw that I believe should have been fixed. Despite the book being so small the author did an amazing job writing the story.

At the age of nine I was a measly fifty-five pounds soaking wet. I remember arriving home after school to what looked to be a Clifford-sized beast. Cautiously, I approached this massive monster and when I got to five feet away he ran towards me and licked my face like the leftovers on your dinner plate. Turns out, this “beast” was a stray Rottweiler from a few miles over with no collar. Because of Winn-Dixie is a story by Kate Dicamillo that captures the love of a little girl and her new stray dog.
A Love That Destroys As I began reading Junot Diaz’s Drown, I noticed the repetitive nature of violence in the first few chapters itself. Yunior, who seems to be the narrator and the main character, has a innocent outlook towards life around him in the first chapter. His older brother, Rafa is way too violent and sexually driven for a twelve year old boy, and it makes me wonder, how Yunior would grow up to be.
“The Yellow Wall-Paper” I believe that her she was having Postpartum Depression after she had her child. She would be considered to have Temporary Nervous Depression, merely because she wanted to be with her newborn but that right was taken away by John. I believe that John thought he was helping her by putting her in an enclosed area for her well being. Not understanding the fact that the time she was alone for so long can make her more depressed and feel alone. When Charlotte first saw the house she really loved it, but she had a weird feeling about it.
