If you had the chance to have any three wishes granted, what would you wish for? In the stories ‘What of This Goldfish’ and ‘The Fisherman and His Wife’ two men were given a certain amount of wishes. Of course, the wishes came with consequences, and the characters had to have had a reason to wish of these wishes. The stories are similar and yet different in many interesting ways, and are both overflowing with hidden themes and morals. The characters of both stories made some good and bad choices for their wishes; wouldn 't you!
The story, What, of This Goldfish, Would You Wish? by Etgar Keret, portrays the theme of making the right choice means forfeiting someone’s contentment for the benefits of others. The author emphasizes how Sergei unselfishly restored the health of his sister, Sveta’s son, and a stranger named Yoni instead of using the wishes for himself or for personal desires. For example, in the story, What, of This Goldfish, Would You Wish?, it states, “That first wish, Sergei used up when they discovered a cancer in his sister. A lung cancer, the kind you don’t get better from.

Like all other stories, Marlin’s hero’s journey started with his call to adventure. His call to adventure first started by taking Nemo to school, then realized he got captured by a group of divers.
R says yes R lies about fish G I think he is going to pick Shelia As I read the story, I wonder whom the little boy will pick Shelia or the bass. Is it possible that he will pick Sheila? I don’t think the 14-year-old boy will choose the bass. I think he will choose Shelia. The first reason I think this is because if he loves Shelia as much as he loves fishing.
The teenage narrator (WB) of ‘The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant,’ and the narrator (Alice) in ‘Boys and Girls’ experience the journey to discovering their own identity. As they mature, they become accustomed to comfortable with their identity. WB struggled with whether to impress a girl or catch a rare big bass in the lake. Alice struggled on whether to conform to her family’s expectations and on what culture says or act out upon her morals. Reaching the end of both stories, both narrators comes to a realization, WB realizing how his passion is worth more than impressing a temporal girl, while Alice realizes that she is subconsciously conforming to her gender stereotype.
The fish represent two lovers’ feelings; how his lover “swallows his charms hook, line and sinker” (stanza 2, line 10-11) and how “her love’s […] gone belly-up. His heart sinks like a fish. He drinks like a stone” (stanza four, lines 16-19). This is the poet’s way of suggesting that this poem isn’t truly about fish; in fact, when fish die, they do not sink – they float. A heart can sink like a stone
Fearful Father in Search of His Rebellious Son Disney/ Pixar’s Finding Nemo is an animated comedy-drama adventure film which tells the story of an overprotective clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) who, along with a regal tang named Dory (voiced by Ellen Degeneres) sets out in search for his son Nemo (voiced by Alexander Gould) who has been abducted by divers. This movie was released in 2003 and it is written and directed by Andrew Stanton. Similar to his last film Monsters Inc, Andrew Stanton has yet again managed to impress the audience by using animated creatures to portray the problems humans face in everyday life. Andrew Stanton tries to express how children now days want to be independent but the parents are not ready to let go of their kids simply because they do not want to lose them. Similarly in the film, Nemo always tries to prove to his father that he can take care of himself but Marlin never seems to believe him.
The men have some major snags accepting his story and request that he let them know reality. Pi recounts a second story that straightforwardly reflects his to begin with, however rather than animals; he is stranded on the raft with his mom, a cook, and a mariner. The similitudes between the two stories make it clear that his mom represents Orange Juice, Pi represents Richard Parker, the mariner represents the zebra and the cook represents to the hyena. While both book and film have the same consummation, their tones are much distinctive and can lead the gathering of people to diverse conclusions. In the novel, Pi seems irritated with the two men and practically appears to recount to them the story so hopefully they will allow him to sit unbothered.
Yes. I learned to fish with my brothers when I was very little. Then they went to war and I couldn’t fish anymore. Then Ultima came—I paused.” (Anaya) On page 78, both Antonio and Samuel start a conversation between each other, but during the process, both of them start to share a common interest, and share a bit of a background. Thus, Samuel has some relation with Antonio so it gives Samuel a purpose or importance in Bless Me, Ultima for being another great friend towards Antonio.
Luckily, Dill is quick on his feet and is able to save himself and his friends from punishment. When confronted about the children’s believed meddling on the Radley property, he lies easily, telling Atticus and his aunt, ‘We were playin' strip poker up yonder by the fish pool.’ His white lie still elicits a scolding, but not the type of punishment they would have gotten if they'd been discovered sneaking around the Radley place! Dill seems like a static character, just a young kid with a creative imagination. But because he is only with the Finches in the summers, we are not privy to how much he develops. When he comes to Maycomb, the kids play and that is mostly what we see with Dill.
