You don’t see your sister using that junk” (Oates 1) and her father always away for the work and never bothered to interact with Connie. Likewise, Connie shares very similar traits to Innocents in folktales. The archetypical Innocent is always a young adolescent, usually a girl, or animal, who is seen as pure and untouched. Connie is also described as young, described as being “fifteen” (Oates 1) and that “she knew she was was” (Oates 1). Just like Connie, Innocents live a life with poor parental guidance and protection, while always being neglected or left unprotected by the mother, who’s either absent or lacking maternal strength, and a father who can’t protect or help the Innocent since
As someone who has not previously had the opportunity to watch “I Love Lucy”, it was a pleasant surprise to be so thoroughly entertained by wholesome comedy such as this show. It is no surprise or secret that Lucy is the main selling point of the show (though her husband and other costars are also very funny). There is merit in delving into why Lucy is so funny, and how this was so different than what was popular and acceptable in the time the show was created. While there was many a housewife on TV before Lucille Ball, and countless others afterward, it cannot be argued that she is truly one of a kind, for many reasons. Lucy’s character compares to other housewives on TV in a few ways, all of which are admirable.
The king had given them precise instructions to be harlequins to the town’s people as well as to the palace dwellers, and to think of the whole village as their stage, just as their native land was. From the rainbow trolls arrival, every day was a party in the realm. Sometimes when the peasants arduously worked, they could suddenly see a rainbow troll riding a pig and singing a funny song. Later in the day, they could see another one swinging from one tree to another hanging from a liana and screaming. At these unexpected comedy shows the locals laugh animatedly and then, continued their chores.
The short story "Everyday Use" by Alice Walker is a story based on a mother and her two children, Dee and Maggie. Mama 's two children are night and day, you have the outspoken Dee and Maggie who is very meek. There are several different dynamic characters in this short story, but today I will be discussing only one, Maggie. Although we all see Maggie conveyed as a meek character throughout the story, she is clearly more than that she is the bearer of the family tradition and culture sacredness. How long ago was it the house burned?
She is sitting on her bench when two young children, and boy and a girl, sit near her. She believes that in the play, they are the youthful hero and heroine that change the outcome drastically. She starts to eavesdrop on their conversation, but she ends up finding out the truth about herself and how she is seen by others. The young boy asks the girl, “Why does she come here at all-- who wants her?” (Mansfield 268) The girl responds by saying that “it’s her fu-fur which is so funny. It’s exactly like a fried whiting.” (Mansfield 268) This hurts Miss Brill’s feelings because her fox stole is something that makes her happy, and it upsets her when the girl makes fun of it.
Many passages of pain a despair, where immediately turn into laughter and jokes. She put the audience in a roller coaster of emotions. Her eloquence and her body gestures were in perfect sync with the play. Also, the musical along with these live sounds were amazing, Vega’s voice was soft and beautiful. The music style was -out of the ordinary-.
My shrieks and giggles of delight could be heard resonating throughout the village and Uncle and Aunty would cheer right alongside me. It was bliss, pure and unadulterated. Some elders would shake their heads and tut-tut at the sight of me (“she’s a girl! How can her parents allow this?”) engaged in such an unladylike activity but Aunty
The imagery had much light and childishness to it. With images such as “it seemed to Myop as she skipped lightly from her house to pigpen to smokehouse that the days had never been as beautiful as these”. As well as having lines such as “she felt light and good in the warm sun”, and “She struck out at random at chickens she liked” to create the feeling of child hood innocence, using all of this light to mean goodness and being unaffected by the harshness of reality. However she also uses the imagery later to show the loss of innocence when she describes everything as darker, when she starts using lines such as “it seemed gloomy in the little clove she found herself in” and “all his cloths had rotted away”. Alice walker is using this imagery to convey that the innocence has been lost at this point, taken by the harshness of reality and death.
I grew up watching Lion King, Mulan, and Pinocchio. In Pinocchio, there were the scenes in the Pleasure Island, where, when the children had enough time doing what children are not allowed to, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, wrecking places, and fighting, they would turn into donkeys. I was shocked when the Pinocchio turns into a donkey. I was afraid of becoming a donkey, so I remember that I always tried to live honestly. Mulan, she is my all-time favorite character of my life.
