That is what makes him the evil antagonist. Bilbo on the other hand is always the one saving the day, stepping up and taking charge (when Gandalf leaves them). This leads to my conclusion of Bilbo being the heroic protagonist. These are two very different characters, I mean Bilbo was trying to save his own life while Gollum was playing with
He likes for things to happen without an explanation. He also likes to incorporate dreams because they change the flow of time, and impossible situations occur. He even incorporates things such as the moon to give the play a dreamy effect. Shakespeare tries to recreate a hectic environment by letting fairies intervene into the magical forest. After a bizarre night in the forest, many of the characters explain that what happen to them was simply just a dream.
Dorothy moves to the wizard in order to find a way to go her home just to learn that she was capable of doing so persistently. Scarecrow wished to become intelligent, but he discovers himself a perfect genius. Woodsman considers himself as not capable of love; nevertheless he learns that he has a good heart.

Frank Baum) Example three: Romeo strives to bring out peace between Tybalt and Mercutio, and eventually between the Capulets and the Montagues.
Most of them like to point out that it makes kids happy, as stated in the article Should Everyone Get a Trophy by Lauren Tarshis, “He says that getting trophies has made him feel good about being on his teams.” That was said by a boy named Lucas, who was talking about how he gets trophies extremely effortlessly. So yes, it is true that trophies make some kids happy for a while, but that would only be looking at the short-term effects of getting unearned trophies. The long-term effects include lack of determination to improve, upsetting the kids that put actual effort into earning the trophies, and the tremendously large cost of the trophies themselves. So after all, the short-term effects aren’t really worth the long-term
He, too, is often at a disadvantage and uses his own wits and control of language to survive in various circumstances. In some ways he follows the principles of an “underdog” with his somewhat depressing current status. The readers are usually “rooting” for Holden due to the given background knowledge of this kid. They are concerned for him and want him to succeed no matter what he does. On the other hand, Holden approaches his representation of a trickster in a more subtle and innocent manner.
The life of Lester is a tragic story of a man shunned by society and turned into a primal beast. Lester is very easily influenced due to his immaturity and childlike innocence. While hard to believe that a ruthless killer could have any connection to childhood, there are multiple supporting instances such as his possession of stuffed animals. After proving himself a marksman Lester wins a couple of stuffed animals that take first priority over his more deviant adult side. When his cabin burns to the ground one of the first things he grabs is the stuffed animals leaving his source of sex to burn with the home.
In which, the movie purposely asserts a role for their viewers, such as the motivation for the reaction of fear. Walton further asserts the concept of make belief, due to our use fictional pretense references in the world they are plotted in, rather stating they are fictional then entailing the statement of it. Walton stresses the cause in using such phrases is because the viewers is emotionally invested in the fiction itself, and becoming caught up in the story, accepting the truths of that particular world. Hence our physiological reaction, or psychological connections to fiction are merely pseudo constructs we develop because of our adulterated enjoyment in the realm of
, Haku and Caliban were both slaves, and were finally freed at the ends of their stories, free to go wherever they wanted without being under the command of magic that could control them. In Spirited Away, there were many elements of fantasy that were very interesting. It began at first as the spirits came into the story, and with closer analysis, there are plenty of tiny details that are unrealistic, yet very effect, that make the story very magical. Not only that, but the morals of believing in yourself and showing manners to others are quite important.

Fantasy versus reality is a theme used in many short stories to misdirect readers and make settings or objects seem what they are not. The theme is often used to draw a blurred line between what is make-believe and what is truth. Many authors use the theme to mislead readers into thinking something else is going on, only to reveal the truth later in the story. This theme is apparent in the short story “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by Ambrose Bierce. Bierce was a writer born in 1842.

Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse-Five chronicles the life of Billy Pilgrim, a fictional character loosely based on Vonnegut’s own experiences in World War II. The Things They Carried, Tim O’Brien’s fictional novel that is set during the height of the Vietnam War.

Vonnegut’s novel travels throughout time and brings the reader to both non-fictional and fantastical scenes. Conversely, O’Brien’s novel is written in chronological order, but also incorporates fact and fantasy into the timeline of the story.
A popular sub-genre commonly mentioned when one thinks of a dystopia is the ever so terrifying rogue technological future society that we one day might become. What is it that makes this idea so popular and so scary? It is the fear hidden within the unknown, the question of, what if we become too advanced. A trend can be seen within this genre, technology is created and it becomes so powerful that the citizens that use it become so obsessed that they become blind to what’s around them. Two prime examples of this are Minority Report and Fahrenheit 451, they share many similarities within the plot line as well as the characters and perhaps even the moral lessons that run at the heart of the stories.
