Even though the stories have a different plot and involve diverse kinds of characters, the final message and moral is the same. In the stories “A Good Man is Hard to Find” and “Cathedral”, Flannery O’Connor and Raymond Carver use unexpected figures and characters as a way to change the main character’s personality and thoughts. In both stories, the authors create characters that are introduced in order to change the main character’s thoughts. In “A Good Man is Hard to Find”,
Although at first sight The Hobbit and A Warrior’s Heart may look irrelevant to each other, the way the authors use the Hero’s Journey are more similar than one might think. For example, both Eric and Bilbo went on their journey to prove something of themselves.

According to the English Oxford Dictionary, a hero is defined as “a person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, and noble qualities”, and Bilbo displays these things throughout the entirety of the novel. One example of his courage is seen from the start of the journey. Bilbo Baggins, a clean conserved hobbit from the Shire, has no desire for adventure or for change. He prefers to stick to his quiet hole, away from the chaos and dangers of the world. Therefore, Bilbo leaving to join the dwarves and Gandalf on their adventure takes a lot of bravery.
Despite being in English, it is incompressible compared to modern English meaning that it has to be translated to a more modern version of English. Many people have translated the poem, two examples being Seamus Heaney and Burton Raffel. Because they are separate translations, there are slight changes and deviations within the two translations. This can be best seen with the hero Beowulf. Though the two translations have their similarities such as Beowulf being portrayed as courageous and him believing in fate, they differ when it comes to Beowulf’s pridefulness.

Realizing is to understand, while denying is to contradict. We as people understand that there is more to any relationship than the just the surface. The Great Gatsby, a mysterious but intense novel, is based off of the ideas of denying but realizing, leaving the story intriguing to readers. Not only does one of the most important characters in this novel, Daisy Buchanan, realize what is going on in her reality but she also chooses to deny it. In this case, her convenience is more important than the truth.
As Tolkien himself was apprehensive of his works being titled as fantasy, we can see that it is rather true that the works goes beyond the genre or restriction of being a fantasy literature. In the literary jargon, the genre of fantasy is that of an imaginary universe, which is far removed from the real world, endowed with magic and supernatural elements. Tolkien’s narrative however deals with problems that are greater than the magic which may be found. It is not a parallel world that exists with ours rather it is a world which has the conviction of our supposed long lost
The dates and facts in a memoir may not be entirely accurate (though they often are), and they are less important than the memories and the reflections. Made of memories, influenced by the writer’s current opinion - memoirs allow us to use our personality when writing. Some are connected to a person or place that is of great significance, as in “Heavy Threads” and “That’s Don Fey”; both prompted from a person or place, in a certain moment which had
Dissimilar ideals make all the difference A resolution of a story might be different from others. Some might have a full resolution, while some might have an incomplete resolution. Book One of The Iliad had a different resolution than the Hebrew Selections, they took different approaches in resolving their conflicts.

It only takes a little mistake to damage the quality of the overall story. Hart notes, “Too much reportage and we cross into scholarship or journalism. Too much imagination and we cross into fiction,” (Hart 223). Writing non-fiction is a challenge, yet a doable one. However, the author needs to make sure that the information that they are providing is concrete and even if they are unsure to not alter it.

The first reason is because the book is may be lengthy to some and not lengthy to others. For me, the book went by relatively quick. For readers who enjoyed the book, there is good news due to the book being a part of a series. Meaning that the fun does not have to end at just Wild Seed. Some of the themes within may only affect women or men such as gendered identities or people of color such as colonialism or race, but it is a read that can educate many.
While there are many unambiguous similarities such as their characters, P.O.V, story structure, values, and theme, they have univocal differences such as the character 's ' actual personality. If you read the book you 'd notice that the lesson the books taught is close if not exactly the same. The characters just had to take two different paths to learning the same lesson. Even though the two took completely different paths...didn 't they take the same one? As
Often Smeagol is considered evil, but what is not thought of most often is who Smeagol was when he had the One Ring, also when the One Ring was not with him. Smeagol couldn’t have been evil when he didn’t even know of the One Ring. In the book The Fellowship Of The Ring Smeagol is a hobbit that was curious and liked shiny things.“The most inquisitive and curious-minded of that family was called Smeagol” (Tolkien 57). This proves that before Deagol found the One Ring he was just a regular hobbit that have hobbies.
