"Doodle!" I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his. For a long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain.” The story also shows symbolism through the coffin, the coffin symbolizes death. The reason it symbolizes death is because The reason that the coffin symbolizes bad luck is because the coffin was built for Doodles death but Doodle didn’t die so there was a beathly vibe given off by the coffin.
There are tons of great parts in this book, but I can only name three. I like when Cole tried to help Peter showing that Cole had really changed and could contain his anger. Second part is when Coles asked the sparrows if there were okay after the storm knocked down the tree that their nest was in. Last is when Cole gave Peter the at.oow because Cole trusted Peter and hoped that Peter could someday trust him. I would recommend this book to someone else to read because it shows the power of anger and how hard it is the contain it
In the book Black Elk Speaks the main character Black Elk started to tell his life story to the John G. Neihardt.

He then goes on and talks about his first major accomplishment which was killing a buffalo at the age of ten. Some of his childhood stories were told too. When he and other kids would play they would do things like, cut off the uppermost portion of a flagpole which resulted in Redcloud talking peace into the soldiers with words of wisdom.
Person versus nature can be found consistently throughout the story. An example of this conflict, is the first time Eragon visited the place in the forest, where he found Saphira’s egg. While he was walking through the forest, a root, which seemed to Eragon like it grew in front of him, tripped him, and caused him to break his wrist. This injury was the best thing, and worst thing that happened to Eragon. He was hardly able to function with his intact hand at first, but within 2 weeks, he was able to use his left hand as well as his right.
While playing with her cow, Sylvia “only laughed when she came upon Mistress Moolly at the swampside, and urged her affectionately homeward with a twig of birch leaves” (196). As Mrs. Tilley and the hunter discuss about birds, the hunter replies, “Oh no, they’re stuffed and preserved, dozens and dozens of them... and I have shot or snared every one myself” (199). Then the hunter makes a deal that he “ would give ten dollars to anybody as to find that heron’s nest...and [he means] to spend my whole vacation hunting for it if need be” (199).
This is what begins the fairytale structure with absentation and interdiction. The place of the villain is the hunter, and though her does not harm her family members, he kills many of the birds in the forest, which upsets Sylvia. The magical agent is the aid given by the oak tree she climbs to search for the
In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee Arthur aka Boo Radley is a mockingbird because he is a kind recluded person getting harassed by everyone because he’s different but he’s really just a nice person, shy and even protected Jem and Scout from their attacker showing his courage. To begin with, Boo is nice because he gave many things to Scout and Jem through the knothole till his brother Nathan clogged it up with cement because it was “dying” as Scout and Jem thought but really isn’t much proof. “We were walking past our tree. In its knot-hole rested a ball of gray twine”(59) after a bit of talking Jem convinced Scout not to take it yet and leave it waiting to see if someone like Walter Cunningham would take it back. “We went back home.
Good Bye? “There we laid her to rest in a dark oak coffin in her final spot.” My Dad told me as I snuggled up in my fluffy pillows, trying to sleep, until I remembered… The dark oak coffin just like the wood of my bed frame. Being 13 years old never helped either, watching the coffin being lowered down into the grave and being covered with dirt was like being shot in the stomach. I will never forget that.
“The pine trees towered over me, like a human to an ant. ” I had to include this because even after all the years I can still remember how small I felt, yet I was in awe of the tree’s size. I then once again slightly exaggerated by saying, “I cut through brush with a machete avoiding any carnivorous plant.” I included the carnivorous plant part because while I was thinking about the trip, I remembered how much of an adventure it felt like.
It was a cold November 16, 1934 and Everett Ruess was in a sticky situation. He was stuck in a snow igloo hastily made 6 days before his hands were poisoned by a rattlesnake’s bite. The rattlesnake that had bitten him had an owner, Frank Dandis, his greedy childhood friend who moved to Escalante, Utah five years before. Six days ago, they were the best of friends, but now they were bitter enemies stuck in an igloo because of a whirlwind snowstorm. Frank Dandis was a farmer who had always dreamed of being a roamer, one who explores nature’s natural beauty as a profession.
“Hey, Nathan,” a voice called out, “Why don’t you put those books down and come have fun for once.” It was Silas Wilcox, one of my oldest friends, who had called to me from the village fountain. His black fur was matted and soaked as he stared back at me with water dripping down his face. He was a Panther Novan, not too rare, but still not too common and he was also the person who had saved my life years ago. I chuckled as I lay the crinkled old chronicle I held to the grass beneath the large oak tree beneath which I sat.

As a baby, I was still just the same Ohio State fan. I would chant and cheer for the scarlet and grey. I made a slight pronunciation issue that I will forever laugh at because it said Ohio Steak instead of Ohio State. I was defiantly the laughing stock of the family on Saturday’s and now no one can call me a fake fan because I was rooting for the Buckeye’s before I could even pronounce the words correctly. In the winter of my kindergarten year, a major snowstorm struck in Ohio.
