Penelope can be described as a good mom because she protects her son from lots of dangers from the world. “Being a single parent and working full-time, it’s hard to find time to do anything other than just take care of the necessities of life.”(Foerstner, 2). This quote relates to my topic sentence because Penelope is doing the best she can do to take good care of Telemachus. It relates to the real world because since being a single parent is hard work, you need to work full-time in order to provide food, water, and a house. It relates to the book, “The Odyssey,” because Penelope was protecting her son, Telemachus from battling for the throne.
This is very clear in The Catcher in the Rye and Peter Pan. J.D. Salinger writes the first, and it is the story of Holden Caufield, a teenage boy in the 1950s, who, after his 4th high school expels him, runs away, and in the process, grows up, becoming an adult. J.M. Barrie writes the second, and it is the fantastical story of Wendy, a young 8-year-old girl, who travels to Neverland, a magic place where no one ages, with Peter Pan, a small boy who cannot grow up.
Throughout the years Barrie’s story changed quite a bit, but the changes were mostly the physical appearance that showed modernization, but the message in Disney’s 1953 movie Peter Pan stayed consistent with Barrie’s novel. Peter Pan story shows how society was becoming modernized but the ideals of the people stayed the same. Gender roles do not change and are the same in both the novel and movie. Peter Pan is a great tale that has been enjoyed for more than one hundred years. This tale is about learning from your childhood and there are a lot of messages that Barrie sends to his audience.
Peter Pan tries to convince people like Wendy to join him in never growing up. He doesn’t want Wendy to lose her innocence just like how Holden doesn’t want Jane to lose her innocence. This is why I used Peter Pan as a symbol to represent Holden Caulfield as they both want the people around them to stay
During the 19th century, women were overshadowed by the men of their household, therefore they had no sense of independence nor dominance. In Mary Freeman’s short story, “The Revolt of Mother,” the author presents Sarah Penn, a woman who takes a stand against her husband. In the beginning, the reader learns that Sarah is a hardworking mother and wife. She maintains the household work and meets her children needs. She is suddenly confused of her husband’s actions concerning their future.
Darling when she worries that Wendy’s stories might have truth to them. Mrs. Darling also portrays the stereotypical mother that is the peacemaker in the house and defends her husband to her children. She tucks the children in bed and says kind words to them in a gentle voice. She gets her husband ready for the party by tying his tie and cleaning his shirtfront, showing the viewers that she is the “perfect wife and mother”.
There are a couple of accounts of the story of Pandora and the Jar. There are many similarities between the different accounts and also between the story itself and others. Pandora and the Jar is a story written by the ancient Greek poet Hesiod. It tells the story of how Zeus punished the god Prometheus for deceiving him by sending a girl named Pandora who would release suffering into the world to plague the nations. Many centuries later the author Nathaniel Hawthorn wrote the novel A Wonder book for Boys and Girls which include the story The Paradise of Children.
There have always been stories and tales about those that are seemingly lucky enough to be granted three wishes. Most people dream of their wishes becoming a reality, but wouldn’t it seem too good to be true? In the two stories The Monkey’s Paw by William Wymark Jacobs and The Third Wish by Joan Aiken, two people in very different situations experience the reality of how wishes don’t always work out the way we’d like them to. Throughout the two stories, there are handfuls of similar and contrasting points present involving the exposition, conflict, resolution, and theme in these differing tales. By way of example, there is a variety of similarities in plot to be found between the two stories.
When writing from a first person perspective, it is easy to write a story similar to another*. Though the story may have a completely different story line, it can be very similar to another in structure or format. An example of two stories that are similar in structure are “Cathedral” and “Why I Live At the P.O.” “Cathedral”, written by Raymond Carter, tells the first person account of a man who befriends his wife’s recently widowed blind friend. Though the narrator is cautious of the blind man at first, the two end up bonding over watching television and cathedrals. “Why I Live at the P.O” is written by Eudora Welty and tells the story of one sister who is very jealous of her own sister who the narrator believes is the “favorite child.” Both “Cathedral” and “Why I Live at the P.O” are short stories written from a first person perspective that are very different in context but similar in structure.
He then has to face the fact that Estella does not love him and all the work he has put in to gain her attention, is only now to his advantage. This goes to show that people get so focused on impressing others and fitting in that they forget who they really are and what will result in the best outcome. In the novel, Pip realizes that he ended up alone and that the woman he believed to love never even liked him in return. Basically ended up being a sort of plot twist, where the audience was meant to realize how when they have too much ambition they forget what they had from the start. This lesson demonstrates how no matter what one should focus on the real meanings of life, and not material
