Throughout the book wednesday war holling is influenced by mrs.baker, the yankee players that played catch with him,and then shakespeare, romeo and juliet. One main influence in Holling’s life was Mrs Baker. I think the biggest thing she did was just being there for him when his dad was not.

Within the play Trash Anthem, the two are already in a relationship and have reached the end. However in Sure Thing, it is the blossoming of a new relationship. Comparing the two plays, the characters are both believable because the reactions that come from the responses are how normal humans would react as well. Trash Anthem developed the characters by showing the “Woman” and her anger truthfully being a longing for her husband. But overall, Sure Thing had more development in character towards the end as Billy and Betty begin to get more excited as they realize they have a connection with things like “Woody Allen” and “Entenmann’s crumb cake” (Ives 12).
Then, he thinks of all the things he can buy with the pearl: “…and the music of the pearl rose like a chorus of trumpets in his ears.” (Steinbeck, 28). Furthermore, “In Kino’s ears the Song of the Family was as fierce as a cry. He was immune and terrible, and his song had become a battle cry.” (Steinbeck, 89). We can see that Kino is a dynamic character, meaning that he changes throughout the story. First, he cares a lot about his family and is a very kind-hearted man.
This was the first to not only have mutual respect, but also mutual love. Saying that, it seems strange to think that it came from the Franklin of all people. The next best (but still awful) marriage tale is “The Clerk’s Tale.” The reasoning for choosing this one is that it deals with actual love (Walter did not have to choose a lower class wife), nobody was made a cuckold, and everyone lived happily ever after. “The Shipman’s Tale” and “The Merchant’s Tale” are pretty much tied for third place. To me, both stories are very similar; tales where the “blind” husband is made a cuckold of by one of his close friends.
Reading the “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” the readers, also realize that one important thing in which Mark Twain unites the novel is that, Due to he was an humanist, he always appreciates the nature and always starts the chapter of his book, with some calm introductions for example sunshine’s, beautiful days, sort of heavenly surroundings and as the novel progresses one thing he makes the reader realizes is that Mother Nature is good but human Nature is Romantic and doesn’t make sense, for example the Injun joe scene, the humans are always greedy and want to use others. Due to Mark did not believe in any religion, he was influenced by both Romantics and Realists, but he adjusted that in two different perspectives for example, he was a Romantic in the case of Mother nature and a strict Realist in the case of Humans. Mark Twains methods which make the novel come alive is actually the language as the methods of Mark Twain were that He gets his facts first, and then he distorts them as much as you he pleases, as to the adjectives he states that “When in doubt, strike it out” and last but not least. He uses plains, simple language, short words and brief
English 10 Honors Mr. Johnson December 2nd 2014] Picnic Lightning Billy Collins’s Picnic Lightning talks about the significance of life. The poem conveys a general truth about menial importance and delicacy of human life. The speaker briefly talks about how easily a life can be taken and ended.

The talk that he with Connie in the park showed who he was. They instantly clicked the second day they meant . He said to her “If Avery can't see your beautiful just the way you are then he's a fool and he doesn't deserve you.” He lifted her up at times like these and that's why she fell in love with him.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said ,“ It is very easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements in comparison with what we owe others.” His quote is very informative as it is very common for people to get lost in the thoughts of how important the things they do are for them. In Beowulf was very proud of all of his achievements which overtime greatly affected him negatively. Where as in Hamlet is more focused on other personal issues, that keeps him distracted from self-achievement. With Beowulf and Hamlet’s personal characteristic of loyalty, bravery, and honor These characteristics are a huge part of how Beowulf and Hamlet are very different, along with how similar they can be as well. Loyalty is being faithful and devoted to someone or something.

Mark Twain’s utilization of Huck as a narrator is a key part in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck’s life is very easy to understand and follow throughout the story. The story would’ve been completely different if anyone else was the narrator. Twain uses Huck effectively as a narrator because we can sympathize with him more than we could with Jim, the many things he can do that Jim can’t, and through the hardships that Huck, Jim, and Tom face. Huck’s background makes us feel bad for him because he is a teenager who has a very abusive father and doesn’t have a mom.
This unexpected revelation, that Nick firstly claims to be “a strange coincidence” (4.78) made Gatsby so much more interesting in the eyes of Nick. Being romantic himself, Nick truly admires this act. Nick understand that Gatsby’s love towards Daisy is more than just strong. In Nick’s understanding the person is not truly alive if he has no higher goal or dream towards which a person works and tries to reach every day of his life. Gatsby, by Nick’s definition, is truly alive.
