Nat has three family members: his wife, his daughter Jill, and his son Johnny. When Nat’s kids were being attacked by the birds, he didn’t hesitate to intervene and fight off the birds. When he went to get Jill from the bus stop as birds accumulated in the sky, he got her a ride home from Mr. Trigg and ran himself. He sacrificed himself to save his daughter, leading to multiple wounds. He sleeps in the kitchen with his wife and kids, because he would not risk leaving them alone in their rooms; he did not trust the boards inside of their chimney.
I agree with Zizek and I believe it is not fair to say that this is a natural thing for birds. In this case, birds serve as another dimension that literally tears apart reality. The attack of birds is to prevent or trying to prevent a sexual relationship. Another example is when the mother goes to the neighbor’s house and finds him dead and his eyes where eaten by birds and she also sees the birds on the window. She tried to shout but she couldn’t; her voice was

In Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ short story “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings”, Marquez writes about an unexpected outsider and how people deal with that outsider or how they deal with the unknown and unexpected. In this short story, what they first assume is a “lonely castaway from some foreign shipwrecked by the storm” (51) shows up but after talking to their neighbor “who knew everything about life and death” (51), they then assume that he is an angel. Immediately the whole town rejects him, “they did not have the heart to clob him to death… before going to bed he dragged him out of the mud and locked him up with the hens in the wire chicken coop” (52). Pelayo and Elisenda, in addition to the rest of the town, reject the old man and begin treating
During their way they were hunting, in this game one of the boys pretended to be the pig. In fact, Ralph liked the game. When they get to the mountain, Jack, Ralph and Roger the parachutist. It was dark and they run away thinking that the parachute is the beast. In the following day, onto the beach, Jack tells the others boys to take Ralph out as a chief, but none of them do
Pelayo and Elisenda, the family, the very old man with enormous wings is staying with are the first to disregard the golden rule. From the beginning they mistreated the angel by making him stay in a unsanitary environment like the chicken coop. “..before going to bed, he dragged him out of the mud and locked him up with the hens in the wire chicken coop”. (363) Instead of helping the angel they used him for their own personal gain. They took advantage that everyone in town knew there was a flesh-and blood angel at their place to make money.
Ashputtle has birds that watch over her and help when she wants to go to the dance,“O tame the doves, tame the turtledoves.” ( Manheim 854).The birds that are in the story symbolizes her mom that has past away. And help through life just like her mom would. Ashputtle really relies on the birds a lot in the story, they helped her with the tasks she was told to do and when she needs to get ready for the ball. They also helped the Prince when he was wrong about who he thought his wife was. This pattern affects the story because without the bird Ashputtle would be lost.
Other young men and women soon wanted to fly. And the people said, “Why don’t you give it a try?” The sky’s still big, and the sky’s still high, But you’re bound to get there, by and by. Just remember her words, ‘Til the day you die, “Nobody Owns the Sky!” Reeve Lindbergh dedicated her poem to the family of Bessie Coleman with admiration and respect from another flying family. “It looks like a good day for flying.” “Miss Bessie Coleman (Queen Bess), the daredevil aviator accomplished her goal in her short life. She made a difference and she did “amount to something.” Mae Jemison, M.D.
Atticus said to Jem one day, “I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird,”(pg. 92) In Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch teaches his children not not to kill mockingbirds because they are innocent; all they do is help and get treated poorly. All throughout the novel multiple people are seen as “mockingbirds”. In the novel, Atticus Finch, Tom Robinson, and Boo (Arthur) Radley are all metaphorically portrayed as mockingbirds because they all try to help others, yet they are mistreated.
As in most stories, children don’t always listen to their elders. Icarus was so excited about flying that he did fly too close to the sun. The glue melted, and he fell into the sea and was lost. Daedalus flew to Sicily and was taken in by the king. King Minos was very angry, and he made up his mind to find Daedalus.
