Bigger hotly replies, blatantly shutting his mother down when she tries to bring his ignorance to his attention. Bigger himself even acknowledges the filth he lives in, but maintains his denial through his seeming lack of care, “he knew the moment he allowed what his life meant to enter fully into his consciousness, he would either kill himself or someone else” (14). Bigger seems to block anything unwanted from bothering him, which is a terrible form of denial as it just leads to the problems manifesting themselves in Biggers mind. Bigger’s suppression of the truth leads him to close off his mind and not even address the issue, which is a large reason why Bigger struggles with the issues he does later in the book. Richard Wright places hints as to who Bigger is behind the anger throughout the novel, and it shows that Bigger is in severe denial.
All of the creatures asked for help but since they didn’t fit the description they just kept to themselves. While all this is going on Little rabbit is asking her mother why the terrible things are taking the creatures, but her mom just responds don’t worry about it and don’t question it so she doesn’t get in trouble. It went on like that until the bad things came for Little rabbit and her mother Little rabbits decide to hide and watch all the rabbits ask for help only to see there is no one else left to help. When everyone is gone Little rabbit realizes the theme when she states, “I should have tried to help the other rabbits," he thought. "If only we creatures had stuck together, it could have been different” (Bunting, 3).
Simon is a compassionate boy who understands and tries to help everyone around him no matter their age or status. As most of the “biguns” in the story bully or ignore the “littluns”, Simon cares for them. He helps them retrieve the best fruit from the trees and does
He prefers to stay alone because he is not social. But since he pitched a perfect game, Biggie decided that he wanted to try to play baseball for the highschool team. Biggie’s weight was stopping him from realising his talent and from meeting his love and his friends. One more symbol that I noticed in the book is Biggie’s gift for pitching baseballs and wiffle balls. I believe that this is a symbol because it helps Biggie to get out of the house because it is something that he is good at other than using a computer.
He also felt tired. Tired of dealing with lack of food and abandonment from his parents. He thought that this was an excellent solution to make his life better for him but in reality it became a problem because he was thrown in a situation where being a human didn’t matter. It was like how someone who abandons their life and escapes it to find something better, but this didn’t happen for Richard Frethorne. His situation was that a “Mouthful of bread for a penny loaf must serve for four men which is most pitiful.
The general shrugged his shoulders and delicately ate a hothouse grape. ‘As you wish, my friend,’ he said. ‘The choice rests entirely with you. But may I not venture to suggest that you will find my idea of sport more diverting than Ivan’s?’ He nodded toward the corner to where the giant stood, scowling, his thick arms crossed on the hogshead of chest.
When the Terrible Things come for the other characters the rabbit says “The Terrible Things don’t need a reason, just be glad it wasn’t us.” So even though the rabbit knew they were bad characters as long as it wasn’t them it was okay. In Yertle the Turtle the turtles that knew Yertle was a bad character still followed his orders when Yertle said "Turtles! More turtles!" he bellowed and brayed and the turtles 'way down in the pond were afraid they trembled they shook but they came.”
Also General Zaroff said the Cape Buffalo knocked him out for 6 months while he was hunting for it , because it was so strong. So both of these together would be a really hard hunt for him, and he would not be bored of hunting anymore. Another animal that he could be hunting is a hybrid of a human and a gorilla.
In this novel, a great example of physical police brutality that can be seen on pages 268-270 when Bigger is finally caught by police. Once he is caught he is forcefully drug down concrete steps with no care at all. Verbally, he is called many derogatory names. Many phrases are thrown at him such as “Kill ‘im! Lynch ‘im!
Companionship is like food; we need it to survive. Psychologists find that human beings have a crucial need for involvement in group life and a close relationship. This shows in many ways in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. Lennie and George are labor workers in California with a unrealistic long term goal of owning a house with rabbits. As they adapt to their new ranch, they experience many obstacles and meet new people.
One of the most important forms of animal symbolism that is represented in Of Mice and Men is held with rabbits. This animal in particular plays a huge role throughout the text as a sign of hope for Lennie. Steinbeck states "An' live off the fatta the lan'," Lennie shouted. "An' have rabbits. Go on, George!
He had to learn how to survive without instruction from anyone else. He says, “We have made a bow and many arrows. We can kill more birds than we need for our food; we find water and fruit in the forest. At night, we choose a clearing, and we build a ring of fires around it. We sleep in the midst of that ring, and the beasts dare not attack us.
The book Riverkeep is written by Martin Stewart. This book is really hard to read so I would suggest people within the high school to adult range to read this book. The main characters in Riverkeep are Wulliam (Wull) Fobisher, Mix, and Tillinghast.
