I have been reading Watership Down for a few weeks and it turned out to be about a lot of different things. Fiver is a small rabbit that can tell when things are going to happen and if they would be good or bad. He foresees great danger to the warren so he tells the Chief Rabbit, who doesn’t believe him. Hazel decides that the must leave the warren so he recruits two of his friends, Dandelion and Blackberry, and Pipkin, a friend of Fiver. The rabbits come to a field where they believe they can stay, but it is already inhabited by a group of rabbits, who let the travelers stay.
Then all the guys went looking for Lennie. George lied and said he went South. In chapter 6, Lennie had two hallucinations; about his Aunt Clara was scolding him about how he treats George and the Rabbit said if Lennie was to have rabbits they would die. Next, George found Lennie in the brush by the river so he went over and talked to Lennie about the dream to distract him.
Back in Weed Lennie got accused of rape and all he did was grab the lady’s dress because he liked it. When she started screaming Lennie got scared and held on to the dress and George had to hit him over the head with a fence picket to make Lennie let go. The men of Weed wanted to lynch Lennie, so George got him and Lennie out of town and got them new jobs (42). Lennie was in the barns with the pups and was playing with the one he liked. The pup made like he was going to bite Lennie.
He hisses. Abigail swallows thickly, but continues to hold her ground as an act of petulance. "I told you I saw a rabbit! And in any case, why is defeating mother such an important factor in your life?"
My favorite poem in “Reading, Responding, and Writing” is Maxine Kumin’s “Woodchucks”. This is an intriguing story that starts off with a gardener gassing these innocent woodchucks that are only trying to survive in their home but end up eating his produce in the garden. It escalates very quickly to him becoming obsessed with murdering them until each and everyone is dead. The story is interesting because at first you think nothing of the killings but then he takes it too far and won’t stop, as if he is addicted. Though the poem might just seem to be about a gardener killing woodchucks, it really shows that if a person is pushed too far they can become obsessed, lose all humanity, and become a monster.
George told Slim, another character, that he had once told Lennie to jump into a river as a joke. This nearly resulted in Lennie drowning. That, and when Curley assaulted Lennie and Lennie didn’t even try to defend himself proves that he was indeed a danger to himself and others when he accidentally kills a puppy and breaks Curley’s wife’s neck because he didn’t understand the amount of strength he
In The Crucible, Martha Corey is accused of placing an imprecation on Mr. Walcott’s pigs, causing all of them to die. At award shows, celebrities receive panegyrics and trophies upon winning a category. My teacher’s nebulous explanation in class caused me to be confused on my homework.

Amir is the protagonist and narrator in The Kite Runner. He is a Pashtun and Sunni Muslim. Since the beginning of the book, the reader might believe that Amir is immoral or iniquitous since he would test Hassan’s loyalty and slightly tease him too. A conflicted character, Amir struggles between the logical and emotional sides of his being. Amir is also a coward.
Similar to that of a kite’s composition, a degree of irony is woven into the friendship of Amir and Hassan. The kite’s characteristic beauty deceives onlookers as to its ruthless intentions; rather than simply displaying the kite’s graceful movements and appearance, kite fighters aim to destroy and capture their opponents. Likewise, while socially and culturally Amir is superior in education and power, an evaluation of loyalty and courage reveals that the lower-class Hazara servant maintains dominance. In fact, Hassan is able to forgive Amir for his betrayal decades before Amir is able to forgive himself, shown in his yearning “to rekindle things between [them]” (87-88). Amir understands his elevated social standing, but also recognizes Hassan’s superior self-confidence and forgiveness.
Deception is important to The Kite Runner because of how it changes the course of characters lives. ||Deception is defined as the act of deceiving someone. In the novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, deception is woven throughout the book like a web. In the past we have brought up as a class that the book is really about Hassan, just viewed through the lense of Amir. Since the book is told from Amir’s perspective, he is connected in some way to each of these lies.
The Kite Runner movie based on a novel first takes place in Afghanistan, with the film focusing on two boys named Amir and Hassan, Amir is the lucky one, as he is the boy living a wealthy lifestyle due to his fathers success. Hassan on the other hand is a poor Hazara boy living as a servant for Amir and Baba. In the film Amir and Hassan are faced with a childhood bully named Assef, who rapes hassan later on in the film. Amir does nothing about this issue and he begins to ruin his friendship with Hassan, betraying him and calling him a theif and not interfering in the middle of him getting raped.
