At the beginning of the book the narrator seems to be a very good kid, but it doesn 't make sense how she turned bad so fast. If I went to a party and I was tricked into drinking LSD I would learn my lesson. However “alice” promised herself that she would not do drugs again, but found herself addicted to them. I understand that this is a diary, but there is usually a smooth transition from a
It sounded exciting.it didn't sound like a bad thing. Not really” (1) This quote from Coraline tell us that Coraline is a little bit nervous about what she will find in the other flat. I am going to analyze this quote and the fact that without courage the novella would not be the story it is. See the courage in the book keeps it alive if Coraline collapsed with fear and didn't go on she wouldn't of saved her parents and the other mother would of tricked more kids to their doom.

In the novel, Harper Lee also says how Scout was acting too much like a girl so she couldn 't hang out with Dill and Jem, but she had the courage to go to the Radley house when she could have just stayed home and let Dill and Jem go all by themselves. I think that Jem, Dill, and Scout are really afraid of him but the novel say “the Radley Place fascinated Dill”(pg.10). They think that Boo Radley is mean and that he attacked his dad. And I think Scout is the most afraid of him because she is the youngest and Jem tells her things that people have told him about Boo Radley and Scout believes they are true. Up until Miss Maudie was talking to Scout about Boo Radley, Arthur Radley, she was highly afraid of him.

If we do not fully understand myth, legend, and folklore, we couldn 't understand some literature today. Myth, legend, and folklore are the backbone of literature from children 's stories to adult literature.

Without myth, legend, and folklore, we would be an uncultured
Another reason why the book 13 Reasons Why should not be on the banned book list is because of friendship. Before the girls got into a fight they would hang out at a coffee shop down the road from their school called monett 's. when they would have something on their mind they would say “olly-olly-oxen free” and talk about their problems. this evidence shows that friendship is important to get the bad thoughts out of people 's mind, sometimes people just need to talk about their problems and that it what they did at monett 's. friendship is very important in life and this book shows it more than most books and that is why 13 Reasons Why should not be on the banned
Throughout the entire novel of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland the author demonstrates symbolism and meaning in all of his many characters. For example, the Queen of Hearts can be interpreted as a caricature for Queen Victoria, but she can also be a metaphor for why anger and wrath can destroy a person or a reputation. The Mad Hatter is used as a advocate for the theory that life has no meaning, his confusing personalities and various unsolvable riddles.

Each character in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland carries their own fantastic symbolism to the
