Another important event is when Alice finally makes it into the garden. This story is filled with many odd characters and events that may not make sense until you get to the end of the story. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a very interesting book and a classic everyone should read. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland mostly takes place in Wonderland (Alice’s dream world). Wonderland is a strange, seemingly crazy world that can be entered by dropping into a rabbit hole.
“If she’d had time to think about it, Alice might have stopped herself, considering the idea too whimsical. But the words had a force of their own, and only after she said them aloud did she realize just how appropriate the idea was. ‘Let’s have a masquerade.’”, Alyss stays in London so long, she has a family and a prince asks her to marry him. Her and the Alyssians persevere through Redd 's evil schemes and decide they will stop defending themselves forever and go on the offensive to defeat Redd, and Alyss finds every bit of courage and says “‘I’ve finished running from you, Redd. It’s time for you to run.’” Some of the characters, like Dodge, Alyss, and Hatter, show perseverance in trying to defeat Redd.
The dramatic transformation represents their self-sufficient attitude and strong determined attitude they enforced on their children, yet were unable to follow themselves. “That was why we had to find gold.

Just as the feminists played on the fear of not being able to control one’s own body, the fundamentalists play on the fear of an unknown religion, very much reflecting society today. The fact that Atwood described what was occurring at her time, before any of the major terrorist attacks of the 20th and 21st century occurred, supports the idea, not only that Atwood used The Handmaid’s Tale to discuss human cyclicality, but that this idea is a universal one not subject to specifically her writing. Continuing with the idea of cycling societies, the Republic of Gilead is no unique government, and Atwood knows this, and does this on purpose. She models the nation after the Puritanical societies that also dominated New England centuries earlier, using this as a comment on how everything eventually comes back around, and that humans hardly change as much as it seems. What’s more are the many parallels drawn between how women are treated in Gilead, and how slaves were treated.

Stanford Mary Kathryn Stanford Hensley English 11/ Fourth Period 05 March 2018 Part 14: Rough Draft #2 In Katherine Anne Porter 's ¨Flowering Judas,¨ Porter writes, ¨She draws her strength from this one holy talismanic world which does not suffer her to be led into evil. Denying everything, she may walk anywhere in safety, she looks at everything without amazement.¨ (Porter 316). This quote lets the reader in on Laura 's feelings of alienation when it alludes to Laura not feeling at home in this world and her looking at everything without any amazement (Porter 316). Porter uses her different styles of writing to explain the setting and what and how the characters think and feel.

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND Before children could enjoy fantasy children literature without worrying about anything else, the purpose of this literature aimed for infants was purely didactic. This was the case at the beginning of the XVIII century when philosophers such as John Locke, warned parents and teachers in his Some Thoughts Concerning Education book, not to tell stories with “Goblets and Goblins” to their students or descendants. (BRITISH LIBRARY) Nevertheless, in a whole century infinite changes can happen. Before the mid-XIX century, even though the purpose of children literature continued being didactic, helped children became adults, (DAVID SANDNER) and even though, in England, fantasy was considered inappropriate due to moral, science
Emma, the character, has been shown to be financially stable which is why she didn 't need to get married into a rich family. The fact that she was from a high class made her seem more of a nuisance to everyone else because she treated the lower class quite differently. She befriended Harriet, who was from the lower class just because Emma admired her beauty. Harriet adored Emma and would always listen to everything she said. “She would notice her; she would improve her; she would detach her from her bad acquaintance, and introduce her into good society; she would form her opinions and her manners” (Austen, Emma).
The killing of her father works, but they should exchange some witty banter. The flashback with Angelique regarding the women slaves is not needed, it hinders the pace, and her backstory is enough. Angelique can 't hurt Leigha and this shows her vulnerability and makes her complex. Leigha, as mentioned, is the sweet little girl that everyone loves. She claims her mother’s name was “Beth?” But it’s Megan (page 23).
Maria’s mother would not buy her any toy she wanted but would buy her any book she wanted.” (Padian) This led to Maria’s big imagination.

“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home…” Many will instantly recognize the sentence that Dorothy repeated while tapping her glittery, red-clad heels in order to depart from the Land of Oz.

While unceremonious, the farm of her childhood provided her with activities wildly different from Oz.
In Brave New World Bernard feels oppressed, resulting in his determination to break away from the seemingly utopian society. While discussing the hypocrisy of conditioning with Lenina, Bernard discusses the feeling of being enslaved, “No the real problem is: How is it that I can’t, or rather because, after all, I know quite well why I can’t -- what would it be like If I could, if I were free -- not enslaved by my conditioning” (Huxley 78).

She would gently rub my belly every night until I fell asleep. As long as we were together, it didn’t matter where we were; we made the best of it. I was Dorothy’s dog, Toto.
