The relationship in the film is between Edward and William Bloom who relationship has not been so easy due to William getting tired of the stories his father constantly tells to him and others. Not until the end of the film is where William finds out that the stories his father has been telling contain some type of truth in them and that his stories were a way to keep his life immortal. This theme is enjoyable as well because it also feeds the question to the audience whether or not a person truly knows their parent. Even if the relationship is good, does a child ever truly know their parent? Big Fish forces this question into the viewer’s
Have you ever stopped and thought are you really being you? Many people in this world are also struggling like you to find their identity and where they fit in. Being someone else to fit in is not staying true to yourself and being who you are. Many short stories made by many different authors people are struggling to find their identity in life and end up being someone they are not.

Sometimes our attitude or mood changes within time. Just like in these two fictional stories, the characters both start looking at the positive sides throughout the end.

Even though Marisa keeps on messing up, she still has hope in herself. As well as in the “Excerpt from The Black Pearl”, the narrator’s dad tells his son that he can’t go with him to the seas.
But I don’t wish him a thing else from my life” (481). He has a softer tone in the dialogue with Rose which shows that he does care about Cory. He is tough on Cory because he doesn’t want his son to experience the same things as he, as a black male in the mid-century, endured.

Rhetorical Analysis Essay People’s realities are shaped by their experiences of failing while trying to achieve their dreams. For years people have shaped and/or destroyed their reality by trying to catch their dreams. People strive everyday to achieve their dreams, but in reality they never will. John Steinbeck uses many rhetorical appeals to help the reader understand how the American Dream can be with his experiences using ethos, paradox, and repetition. Author John Steinbeck displayed multiple incidents using ethos in Of Mice and Men by using the main character George to have to be the role model for his mentally disabled partner Lennie, while trying to catch their American Dream.
The narrator's biggest conflict, in my opinion, is why did Sonny turn down such a dark path and how can he help his brother without judging the lifestyle he chose. Although, this is not the only conflict in the story. Not only does the narrator struggle with helping his brother but he also blames himself for Sonny's outcome in life. He promised his mother to look after Sonny when she passed because "he ain't going to have nobody to look out for him" (259). The narrator seems to take on the responsibility of Sonny's fallen actions because he was off in the Army and left Sonny with Isabel's parents.

She may be falling for Rudy, no matter how much she denies it in the beginning for she says she regrets not kissing him when he was alive.

Reflection Holden Caulfield, the main character in J.D Salinger’s book The Catcher in the Rye, goes through many tough challenges in life trying to figure who he is. He constantly pretends to act old than he is, but inside, he is scared of growing up. He is also scared of those around him growing up losing their innocence. To symbolize Holden Caulfield and his fear of adulthood, I drew Peter Pan, a Walt Disney character known his choice of never growing up and staying young forever. I believe that Peter Pan is a great symbolism for Holden Caulfield as they both are scared of growing up, want to preserve the innocence of those around him, and wish to save the children from entering the world that is adulthood.
The Catcher and the Rye a novel by J.D Salinger exposes the reader to the recurring theme of Holden refusing to let go of his childhood. After the death of his younger brother Allie, Holden refuses to let go of his memory and continues to act as a child. This idea is first really developed when Holden asks his taxi driver about the Central Park ducks. This is not the first time that Holden has been interested in the Central Park ducks. The driver Horwitz explains that the ducks can fly away, but it really it is the fish that Holden should be thinking about.
