He revealed his secret to his wife because of love and she betrayed him. Tristan had to face banishment from the king because he was in love with the Queen in “chevrefoil.” To begin with, most men wouldn’t hide anything from their loving wife and that’s what Bisclavret did. Bisclavret disclosed to his wife how he turns into werewolf and where he hides his clothes. I don’t blame him much because that was his wife. But he should have known better that betrayal comes from the people we love most.
Their relationship is pretty much non-existant other than the fact that they are foster-siblings.In the beginning of the book, Carley didn't give Michael Eric her stuffed giraffe in fear that he would think she was like a sister to him and he would get affixed to her.

“If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin’ like this, you bet” (Steinbeck 84) Accordingly, she felt unfair for her life and doesn’t want to get stuck on the ranch but she knew she could do nothing about it. Therefore, Curley’s wife had told her suffering to Lennie, though she knows Lennie wouldn’t understand everything, but this still proves she was trying to find connections on Lennie. In the novel, Crooks had tolerated the most isolation and discrimination from others.
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.
Stephen king once said “Description begins in the writer's imagination, but should finish in the reader's.” That is the importance of descriptive language. Descriptive language is one reason books are so popular. It helps the reader connect with the character and helps make the story so good. It grabs your mind, and puts it in the room with the characters. In the book “The House of The Scorpion” by Nancy Farmer the author uses descriptive language and figurative language to create a mental picture, and helps to grab our attention.
However, the opinions of those characters about Ivan’s death have no affect on whether or not his death is good. Ivan’s children were pessimistic and worried for him with the opinion that he was suffering immensely, as shown through his son’s crying in the first chapter. But, this is insignificant since this behavior is part of the fourth stage of grief, which is depression and is banal among those who lost someone. Additionally, Ivan’s wife, Praskovya Fedorovna, had an ambivalent opinion towards her husband’s suffering. She states, “She began to wish he would die; yet she did not want him to die because then his salary would cease.” (4.2) She doesn’t care very much for her husband and Ivan only married her in the first place because it was a social more and would be proper.
As a result, the protagonist in does not live in fear of the darkness, rather she anticipates it and “seiz[es] her knife on the beast” (Carter 1). Therefore, the protagonist in “The Werewolf” is not portrayed as the young, mistreated protagonist because she has already gone through the transition of having to grow up and fend for herself. For example, after killing the beast on her way to her grandmother’s house, the protagonist states, “[the] wolves are less brave than they seem” to reflect how the protagonist has a high self esteem and is confident in her abilities to fend for herself (Carter 1). Due to the history and harsh conditions of the Northern Country where the protagonist resides, their hearts form superstitions that everyone is a witch or a devil. Because of this, innocent people get stoned or hurt because the whole town is looking for reasons to prove certain people's lives that are too good are supernatural
Reflection How to Read Literature like a Professor was definitely a ‘thought provoking read’ like the table at Barnes & Noble said. Although at first, I have to admit that Foster’s writing had bored me a bit, until I realized fact that I had subconsciously been thinking about what certain items symbolize and how they were important to the story. Overall, I enjoyed the work; Foster’s book is truly “A lively and entertaining guide to reading between the lines.” I liked the references Foster constantly gave to novels and movies, that helped me with visualizing what kind of ideas he was talking about, since I personally learn better through visualizations. Finding out about the classic fairy tales becoming modern ones, surprised me a bit;
The definition of a sympathetic character is one whom the writer expects the reader to identify with and care about, though not necessarily admire. In the novel, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, Curley’s wife, a main character in the book is blatantly portrayed as an unsympathetic character. This is because they only see her through the men's eyes, who only see her as a tiresome object, owned by her husband. Steinbeck’s portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair and misogynistic because he only displays her as unintelligent and promiscuous, never has a character have a turning point where they realize she’s more than an object, and he never reveals her true name. The first reason that Steinbeck's portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair is that he never gives Curley any redeeming personality traits, he only depicts her as unintelligent and promiscuous.
