Into The Woods The musical “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a metaphor for life in many ways, but the most prominent one is the woods symbolizing life itself. The prologue song “Into The Woods” is about each of the character’s dreams and wishes. Cinderella wishes to go to the festival, Little Red Riding Hood wants to deliver bread to Granny, and the Baker and his wife want to have a child, even though the witch cursed their lineage. In order to accomplish and reach for some of these goals, they must go into the “woods” and take some risks. Just as we must take risks in our personal lives to accomplish our goals, being that is the only way to achieve what we aspire to do.

The story showcases the black and white style of viewing the world teens categorically take on and the distinct socioeconomic differences between the two groups as they struggle with their place in the world.
J.P. Kulshrestha has observed that Greene's thrillers are written "in the predominantly secular point of view," but the narrative world of the entertainments is fallen, not merely secular. What Harper refers to as "the extreme suffering of loneliness" experienced by the spy on the run becomes emblematic of the modern predicament as Greene conceives it: the loss of God as punishment for the failure and guilt which define our fallen state. Greene's juxtaposition of the comic world and the fallen world emphasizes Wormold's psychological detachment from the concerns and values of the women. The fallen world into which Greene's other heroes finds themselves catapulted lies across "the frontier of violence."

However, as shown in this short story, this ideal treatment of African Americans did not often happen. Instead, Stephen Crane describes not only the unnecessary ruthlessness and cruelty of many white Americans towards former African American slaves but also the silent acceptance of this hatred and the feeling of powerlessness of the freed slaves in the United States during this Reconstructive Era. Stephen Crane preferred to write short stories and novels that had actual historical meaning and references; he used different elements like the selections of a particular audience, point of view, and tone to accomplish writing these kinds of literary works. In “A Dark Brown Dog” he chose to write about the hardships of freed slaves during the Jim Crow South in a third person point of view. This is because while reading a story in a third person point of view, the reader is more likely to be able to analyze and understand the
We were assigned to read a story and make a book report of it, I decided to do it on The Outsiders. When I made this decision, I did not know what a huge change would this story make in me.

Because he belonged to lower class, the greasers, he went through situations that kids that age don 't usually go through, like smoking or, you know, killing people. He and his friends have adventures, and he tells this story to bring attention to some of them, more on this later.
