Ordinary World Cinderella was once a cherished and pampered daughter of a wealthy man. However, after her mother’s death her father married once again. Soon after the marriage her father to passed away leaving Cinderella to live with her wicked stepmother and two step sisters. Although, she has been through troubled times Cinderella remains positive about her life, while she is constantly stuck at home cleaning. Cinderella represents anyone who is alone and misunderstood, however, she wants to achieve her goal of a happy marriage.
For example, after the Prince discovers Cinderella, “He [thought] her more beautiful than ever, and a few days later he married her” (602). The Prince barely knows Cinderella, therefore, he cannot be in love with her. His abrupt marriage to Cinderella shows that the Prince is only attracted to Cinderella’s beauty and charm. In addition, Oochigeaskw is described as “…[a] poor little girl in her strange clothes, with her face all scarred, was an awful sight…” (627). The Invisible One did not marry Oochigeaskw for her attractiveness, but because she had the ability to see past someone’s exterior and look at their hearts.

While the Disney story and the fairy tale version of the stories both end with happy endings the fairy tale is written with much more graphic images than the Disney
Point of view creates meaning in the story because the reader knows what the character is really thinking and feeling this helps us understand the reasons behind his actions Literary Device/ Tool: Passage (in MLA format) Personal Response Explanation (How this device is used to create meaning in the novel.) Simile “That guy Morrow was about as sensitive as a goddam toilet seat.” (Pg.55) Simile is a figure of speech in which two things are compared using like or as.

The main reason literary devices are used is to connect with the reader. When we read, we want to truly enjoy what is written we need to become a part of the story. And literary devices help us to better see and feel the storyline. A good storyline captures all of our senses, these devices draw the reader in, paint a picture, heighten the senses, and pull at us emotionally. Throughout Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story The Birthmark, some of the key literary devices used were irony symbol and theme.
Thomas King invites us to look at how we live our lives through stories by repeating the refrain, “The truth about stories is that that’s all we are.” In other words, our lives depend on the stories we tell. These stores are our experiences and what we tell each other in order to grow. Our stories shape who we are individually and how we use that to interact with those around us. Thomas King is using these stories to challenge not only our perspectives but also the dominant ideologies. This is also seen in “Arresting the Imagination” when Schwalbe introduces the term “othering.” This term is one created to show that the categories and meanings we have created to define people are not facts of nature but do have serious material consequences.

Through Oates story I realized that literature pieces can have a deeper meaning and have hidden messages. Literature helps individual’s express their emotions, gain knowledge, and become informed, making it vital for education. Joyce Carol Oates’s short story’s plot, ‘’Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” is brilliantly inspired on true events. Oates effectively uses the story’s main characters, Connie and Arnold Friend to share with readers the murders of Charles Schmid. Making the short story informative yet entertaining.
The way one interacts with others is commonly determined by their social class, when one’s class is higher than the other it becomes more acceptable to treat them a certain way and the opposite applies too. The Stolen Party follows a young girl Rosaura who despite her low social standing is friends with a rich girl Luciana. Rosaura was invited to Luciana’s birthday party and despite her mother’s protests she decides to go. Despite appearing to integrate herself into the richer population, her dreams of equality were ultimately shattered at the conclusion of the party. Heker’s use of symbolism and characters criticizes the effects of classism on children of lower class.
