Sarah Orne Jewett’s “The White Heron” is a coming-of-age story about a girl named Sylvia who lives with her grandmother in the countryside. She originally comes from the city but chooses to stay with her grandmother. While wandering through the woods with her cow, she meets a young hunter who searches for the white heron as a keepsake.

“Being free” is just a delusion that is instilled into a human’s nature since they were little. In Annie Dillard’s “Living like Weasels” the author is trying to portray her marvelous confrontation with a wild weasel, and gives her opinion on what she notices. “The weasel lives in necessity and we live in choice” (8). No one is truly free, since one can not only be a prisoner to material possessions, but also their wants and desires do drive them. Furthermore, in Human Traits in the Animal, John Burroughs does a great job on describing how humans and animals have some of the same characteristics.
Soon after, she was forced to marry Rasheed, her second act of bravery. Throughout her later life, she tried to get pregnant so many times, however, she could not because she had miscarriages.

I won’t bury another.
She never thinks of them being able to share the garden. She just plans to kill the others so that she can have all that she wants without any interference. Another example of this is when Nagaina says, “If you move, I strike, and if you don’t move I strike” (24). As well as being murderous, Nagaina is selfish. She is selfish because she will do anything to have the garden all to herself, even if it means murdering, even if it means risking losing all her eggs, and even risking her life.
This change of thought and decision making is only natural due to the nature of the Hunger Games. A large giveaway that Katniss is making decisions that benefit her is the fact that was killing people in the arena. An example of this is when a group of “career” tributes (the tributes that have trained for the Hunger Games since they were young) and Peeta chase Katniss into a tree in an attempt to kill her. They decide rather than follow her up, they would wait it out until she had to come down. Instead of crawling down and accepting her fate Katniss notices a nest full of tracker jackers, which are genetically modified wasps with deadly poison, and decides to cut it down onto the group below her.
