Odysseus has a great amount of misadventures on his journey home, one including the meeting of Circe, the beautiful yet mischievous witch-goddess. Odysseus and the men he still had left were in need of supplies; they stopped on an island only to come across Circe. All intruders that stumble upon her island she turns into swine, so it was only natural for her to turn Odysseus’ men into pigs. Hermes comes to Odysseus’ rescue and gives him an herb called Moly. The Moly is what gives Odysseus the resistance to Circe’s magic, this surprises her and she turn his men back to their human state.
“Sorry! I do not want any adventures, thank you.”- Bilbo Baggins (Chapter 1, page 7) I believe that Bilbo Baggins is the most affected by this adventure. At the beginning he was an ordinary hobbit sitting on his lawn, by the end he has killed Spiders, escaped from goblins and most impressive of all, stole the Arkenstone from Smaug. This journey has changed Bilbo as a mold would shape clay. Imagine Bilbo as white play dough, he has been put into the molds (the molds of the tasks he has done.

In the poem “Ode to a Large Tuna in the Market” Naruda is speaking on behalf of a tuna, now dead, that has shown up in the market and the adventures he must have had with the sea. The poems may address different victims fallen to death, but they both have similarities such as: use of metaphors, personification, Tone and mood. The poem “Ode to a Large Tuna in the Market” is very choppy in its structure with the use of a lot of similes and repetition. In contrast “Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes” uses rhyme scheme and relies a lot on its vivid imagery and diction to tell the story. Both poems are obviously about death and they may contrast in some respect, but they have a lot in common.
“Kubo and the Two Strings” is an American stop-motion action-adventure animation by Laika. Set in feudal Japan, young Kubo earns a living for him and his mother with fantastical storytelling in the markets using his gifted magical abilities, where origami figures summoned by the music of his lute come to live to illustrate his narrations. After incidents that interrupted Kubo’s ordinary life, he goes on a quest to find his great samurai father’s amour in order to defeat the Moon King and save his family, while under the hunt of the pair of evil sisters of Kubo’s mother. I was initially interested in the film because of the extraordinary stop motion visuals presented in its trailer, and having seen Laika’s previous productions such as “Coraline”, I expected certain degrees of darker themes and emotional experiences. Although the primary audience would naturally be children, we also see that adults are also a secondary target group.

However, he could defeat his obstacle, because he had a good sense of humor. When people asked about his childhood, he attempted to talk in a humorous way about the poverty and the challenges that he faced.

In Much Ado About Nothing, wit was the down fall to many of the characters, but it was also used to provide the audience with comedic relief. Beatrice‘s and Benedick’s pride in their cleverness, Claudio’s assumptions and gullibleness, and Dogberry’s lack or wit and intelligence lead to the misunderstandings and Discoveries throughout the play (Dennis 224). Dennis is saying that each character had a fatal flaw that Shakespeare highlighted by having something terrible or having something ironic happen to them. This shows how he used the elements and levels of wit to captivate the audience by leaving the characters blind to what was really going on. The audience knew the plan for Beatrice and Benedick, but their own confidence in their wit betrayed them.
With Charlie there Leo knew what to write it about. He would write it about Charlie. For example, in paragraph 15, the author says, “He talked about Charlie the turtle and Charlie the friend, and what he said and how he said it made everyone in the class love turtles and hate forest fires. Leo’s teacher had tears in her eyes.” This proves without Charlie there, Leo would probably not know what to write his report about, because it was about Charlie. In the end, Charlie helped Leo feel fast because Charlie helped Leo gain confidence.
