This shows that the decision Sheila made makes allows her true character to shine through. Next, Sheila heard a sound of a bass in the water and she mentioned that fishing is “dumb”. We can see that because of the two decisions Sheila made, of not helping row the canoe and mentioning that fishing it dumb shows that she is quite rude and not caring of the other person. During their trip to the concert, the narrator notices that the biggest bass he has ever caught just bit his line! He kept debating over the big bass, or Sheila.
But these are not thoughts befitting me; I will endeavour to resign myself cheerfully to death and will indulge a hope of meeting you in another world (43). Elizabeth continued to fulfill her role as the faithful partner until the moment of her death, solidifying her obedience to her childhood commands as her fatal flaw. Without fault she loved Frankenstein, so much so that she did not realize the fate that would soon deprive her of actually achieving her “only” purpose (having children with Frankenstein). Shelley places Elizabeth’s death strategically, after the wedding but before the consummation. This irony demonstrates how even those living correctly can suffer by only following the identity laid out for
Eric’s mother, family, and friends, who all fall under the concept of informal audience, believe that Eric was murdered. Some believe he was shot by a white man and others believe he was drowned by one, nonetheless they all believe the people from St. Joseph took part in covering up his death and making sure no one would find out the truth. All the while, the informal audience of St. Joseph consists of their residents who believe that Eric was suicidal and that he willingly jumped into the lake or he somehow accidently drowned. There is a continuous contest over meaning when it comes down to Eric’s death. In the novel The Other Side of The River, both towns of Benton Harbor and St. Joseph argue that their meaning behind his death is the truth.
All one has to do is drive their vehicle over the platform until the boat is in the designated spot and begin washing it off with the high powered hose. It is basically a small car wash for your boat. This would be a great way to stop the invasion of foreign species, but you can’t make people use it to wash their boat and trailer. However, I believe that a DNR employee or conservation officer could attend the station and make sure that boaters wash their boats and trailers. Although there obviously isn’t enough employees to maintain all the boat accesses in Minnesota, but I do think that it would be helpful to have the wash stations at boat landings on a lot of the big lakes.
The first story we read was titled “The Ravine”. Vinny, the main character, experienced some tough decisions to make, even before the story started. First off, he had to calm down when walking to the pond with his friends because, after all, it was described as a dangerous place. Some things said in the book were “the water tasted tangy”, “the hand and footholds were slimy with moss”, and the trail was a “deadly zigzag”. This, along with the fact a boy died there, would be enough to scare anyone out of going there.
When Wright’s “refusal to let them drown,” it reveals that he was very determined to help them and not let them die. Then with Abe, he wanted to make sure what the “drowning boy had to say” because before he said it was suicide. Though now it shows that he was determined to help Gus, tell his version of the story of how he died. If Wright had not helped the kids they would have “surely died” after falling through the ice into the water and if Abe did not “pay attention” to what Gus “had to say” then he would never found out how he ended up in the river. Because Hoffman uses ice and water motifs throughout the book,
The narrator also encounters internal conflict when Sheila brings up Eric Caswell. Sheila is speaking to the narrator as they are rowing up the river, in the middle of the story. “Eric Caswells going to be there. He strokes the number four.”(Wetherell 2) The narrator deals with internal conflict when Sheila brings up Eric Caswell because they are on a date with each other and she is thinking about somebody else. To continue, the narrator faces internal conflict when sheila says she thinks fishing is dumb.
For example, when the narrator is in the canoe with his date [Sheila Mant] he is forced to cut the line to one of the largest bass he has ever seen because Sheila dislikes fishing. After they arrived at the concert and danced a few times he realized his big mistake as she left with Eric Caswell. And, “It was these secret, hidden tuggings in the night that claimed me, and I never made the same mistake again” (5). The quote explains that after cutting the line to the bass and losing Sheila to Eric he didn’t make that same mistake of losing his identity to something or someone else. But, he also realized his identity in the fact that there would be other Sheila’s and other bass in his life and he should not risk being someone else for Sheila or a bass.
Give me your hand. Help me” (Sophocles, 22) states Antigone, pleading with her sister to help give their brother a proper burial. In this instance she exhibits Fairness by wanting all other aspects to be thrown aside and giving her brother a fair right to a proper
In “People Call Me Crazy” the theme is face your fears. In support of this, on page 18 it says, “Without another thought, I hurled myself into the water.” This confirms the theme because it shows that Thatcher faced his fear of water. When his friend was in danger he jumped into the river to save him. On the other hand, the theme of “The Quinceanera Text” is things aren’t always as bad as they seem. For instance, on page 20 it says, “It may not have been a cellphone but it spoke to me all the same.” This confirms the theme because Ana was disappointed that she didn’t get a cellphone.
