“No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks” (Mary Shelley).The movie Mean Girls by Tina Fey tells the story of an exchange student, Cady Heron, trying to ruin Regina George’s life by sabotaging the plastic’s group. In the novel, Lord of the Flies, by William Golding a group of preteen boys are stranded on an island after their plane crashed and are forced to survive on their own. Both Lord of the Flies and Mean Girls are about the evil found within people, and they both contain similarities in symbolism and characterization;however, these stories contain several differences with the plot and setting. Some similarities in Lord of the Flies and Mean Girls are found when comparing the symbolism and characterization. In Lord of the Flies the pig’s head on the stick represents the savagery and evil found on the island, and the pig’s head is the reason, “Why things are what they are” (Golding 143).
Her initial manipulation attempts are unsuccessful, but Marie continues: “She harassed and bedeviled him so, / that he had no choice but to tell her” (lines 87-88). The use of “harassed and bedeviled” instantly casts his wife’s insistence as suspicious and malicious. Marie confirms the suspicions when the wife schemes with a knight who loved her to get rid of Bisclavret. Even though “she’d never loved [the knight] at all,” the wife offers herself to him in return for stealing Bisclavret’s clothes (line 107). “So Bisclavret was betrayed, / ruined by his own wife” (line 125-126, emphasis added).
It makes her look like she is being mistreated, even though John Proctor is just trying to save his very innocent wife from her execution. Before both characters were misinterpreted in the appendix, John was a hardworking and generous man, while Abigail was a sneaky and untrustful young girl. It would be a mistake to include the appendix in the production because it makes Abigail look innocent when this whole situation of the Salem Witch Trials is her fault. This extra scene portrays Abigail as a young, naive, innocent girl. It portrays her as the exact opposite type of person that she truly is.
Katrina Mayer once said, “A book is a magical thing that lets you travel to faraway places without you ever leaving your chair.” This quote clearly applies to The Odyssey; this ancient greek epic (The Odyssey by Homer) follows the story of Odysseus of Ithaca and his lengthy voyage home following the Trojan war. The book itself is an ageless classic, however it wouldn't be the same without Homer’s unique use of figurative language to depict this story. His two most effective literary tools were his epic similes and personification. His epic similes gave a romantic description of critical, emotion filled scenes. Homer’s use of personification gave a new sense of life to ordinary ideas, which gave a new layer of depth of to the story.
