All three of these themes come together to make the message of conflict and resolution to the reader. The novel wasn’t the greatest novel to read. The author had many things and subjects going around with sudden plot twists, which complicated the story and confused the reader. Although the author does an excellent job of sending the message that all conflict has a resolution that will solve the conflict you just have to find which way works for you, telling the truth, not incriminating someone unless it concerns you or rivalry is your rivalry good or bad? This theme come together and makes the reader take the message easier and is able to use it in every day
Donald Rackin said “The texts were, moreover, replete with primal scenes and overpowering, symbolic renditions of classic Freudian tropes (a vaginal rabbit hole and a phallic Alice, an amniotic pool of tears, hysterical mother figures and impotent father figures, threats of decapitations [castration]…” These tropes are difficult, almost impossible, for children to understand. However adults are able to catch on to some of them. These tropes are a necessity because they allow for a more profound understanding of the story. It helps to appeal to older audiences and allows the adults to connect with Alice and other characters. Carroll put these tropes into the story to specifically make the book more intelligible for adults. While some adults would read a children’s book with little hidden meaning and tropes, more would prefer to read something with more depth. It allows for a feeling of understanding. When they read the book as a child and then again as an adult and see the differences and realize the depth, they have a newfound sense of
In The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, it tells about how the Walls family move to different desert towns, settling in for as long as their father, Rex, can hold a job. However, his perspective of the state and society, and his alcoholism led them to move frequently. The children - Lori, Jeannette, Brian, and little Maureen- experiences unusual childhood, where they travel like nomads to find new money source. This lead to the theme, sometimes you can be mature and responsible at a very young age. The theme is developed by how Jeannette learns how to take care of herself and her younger siblings, and the way her parent taught her.
A book and a movie can be both the same and different. In The Outsiders there are many similarities and differences with the book and movie. They were the same because Johnny kills a man, they cut their, there was the movie scene, and Johnny and Ponyboy went to the church. Some of the differences is when Darry slaps Ponyboy but in the movie he pushes him, Johnny doesn't bring a lot of food in the book but does in the movie he does, when Johnny killed the man it was more described but it wasn't in the movie, and Johnny says he wants to kill himself in the movie. In The Outsiders one of the themes is “friendship”
Satirizing the rule and conventions of Victorian society is one manner in which Carroll subverts the nature of this time period by drawing specific attention to the worst aspects and proving how ridiculous they truly are. Two examples of this within Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland can be found within the tea party scene in chapter 7. This chapter depicts a Mad Hatter and his friends, the dormouse and March Hare all sitting around a “large” table, “but all three were all crowded together at one corner of it”. When Alice happen upon this area, she rather quickly seats herself and begins to speak, but is spoken to by the Hare who explains “it wasn’t very civil of you [Alice] to sit down without being invited”. This is the first sign of the strange Victorian Etiquette that not only is there a specific way to approach a table and begin a conversation, but also the insignificant role children were expected to play – as silence was considered the most ‘correct’ way for them to be – especially in the presence of older company. This is reiterated as the dormouse tells his story about “three little sisters” and Alice constantly interrupts
Themes in a story help to describe what the book is about. It does this in the book Night by helping describe what World War 2 was like for the Jews. It also helps to see what the people in the camps went through. My two themes from night are imprisonment and survival. The first one I will talk about is imprisonment, then i’ll talk about survival.
Despite the changes that were made for the movie adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, the characters and parts of the story that are commonly associated with it, such as the rabbit hole and the Cheshire Cat have been kept. An example of this is the white rabbit. The rabbit is the first glimpse that Alice gets of the fantasy world, so it is a very important character. Alice’s reaction to seeing a rabbit in a waistcoat in the book is described as this “Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it” (Carroll, FIND THE PAGE NUMBER). Alice’s
The main plan of the story Alice in Wonderland is that the seek for self-identity and for one 's purpose within the world. We know, from the start of the story, that there 's a niche between Alice and her sister in terms archaic and interests. We are able to infer from the story that Alice has no peers, which she is in a very pre-adolescent stage with a special intuition that separates her from the others. Concisely, Alice in Wonderland is that the symbolic journey of a fille through a world that she is commencing to analyze and see otherwise. it 's associate degree allegory to what we tend to expertise once the globe becomes larger, or smaller, than what we tend to expected.
Alice- The main character, named Alice, is the narrator of the book and starts out as the average teenager, crushing on a boy named Roger and dwelling on her insecurities. She experiments with drugs in attempt to escape from her loneliness.
Another theme from part two is: Racism affects more than just colored people, but all people. I believe the stronger of these two themes is the first. In chapter 12, the reverend of the all-black church, First Purchase, wants everybody to donate money to help Tom Robinson’s wife Helen. He knows that she and her family are going through hard times due to the absence of Tom so he decides to donate money to help her raise her children. This showed the kindness in dark times because Helen was going through a very hard time so the reverend helped her. Another example of my theme in the book is in chapter 28. In chapter 28, Jem and Scout are walking home from the high school after the halloween party. Upon hearing a noise, they believe it is just Cecil Jacobs. It is soon evident that someone is trying to attack them. After viciously being attacked by Bob Ewell, a man saves both Jem and Scout out of kindness. This man is revealed to be Arthur Radley. This shows kindness in dark times because Jem and Scout would both most likely have been killed if it were not for the kindness of Arthur Radley saving them. My final example of my theme in my book is in chapter 31. In chapter 31, Arthur Radley is still struggling with his fear of society so Scout decides to let him see Jem. After his odd time with Jem, he wishes to be taken home, so Scout shows kindness and walks him home, hand in hand. Similar to the time period this story takes place in, there are many dark things going on in the world in all parts. People are being murdered, hurt, and raped, and yet kindness is the light that shines through those dark times with the help of many people. There are threats in the world that people fear, but people always use kindness to help them through it. And, although racism is not as big of a threat as in the time of this story, there is
Temptation and greed are significant elements in the three stories, as many of the characters’ actions are a result of bad decisions made due to these forces. In Alice in Wonderland, Alice’s food related temptations are what cause her change of size and her progression through the world of Wonderland. Alice is often not even hungry when confronted with items of food in the story, it is their presence that tempts her to eat them: “In the middle of the court was a table, with a large dish of tarts upon it: they looked so good, that it made Alice quite hungry to look at them” (96). It is her lack of restraint when it comes to her appetite that causes her change of size and her lack of power throughout much of the story. Gluttony is displayed for
The Rocking-Horse Winner, written by D.H. Lawrence is more than just a story. The famous short story has many different themes and meanings. Even the title, has a hidden meaning behind it. This title embodies the entire story’s theme on its four worded shoulders. Now, as one reads this, the reader may wonder, what’s this theme that is being spoken of? Unfortunately, the answer can’t be given out just yet. To discover the theme, continue to read on as we both understand the significance of the title and the story itself.
As Alice’s imagination begins to wander, she sees a white rabbit that is wearing a waistcoat, and finding this to be much more eventful that the book she gets up to follow him. As she trails the rabbit she stumbles down a hole. Naturally, she is frightened and concerned, but she begins to realize that she is not so much falling as she is floating which replaces the freight with befuddlement. Also odd, the hole is not like a hole, it more resembles a tunnel that goes straight up and down and its walls are lined with cupboards and bookshelves and Alice is calm. When she finally lands, she follows the rabbit once more to a room with many doors and after snacking on some cakes and beverages that were left on the table, Alice begins to shrink and stretch and will simply not fit through any of the doors. Being a very logical seven year old girl, Alice tries to make sense of everything but out of uncertainty and frustration she asks, “Who in the world am I?”, and eventually she is just swimming in a pool of her own
Wonderland a place where the impossible is possible. Long before Alice slew the Jabberwocky and the Queen of Hearts ever said, “Off with his/her/their head”. There lived a girl named Catherine. Catherine was born into a high-class family that had the chance to marry her off to the short, chubby, and sweet King of Hearts. During a royal ball where Catherine is expected to receive the Kings marriage proposal, she meets the mysterious and handsome Jest. Fear of offending the King and angering her parents, she and Jest enter a secretive courtship. Sadly, Catherine has a fate that she would not be able to avoid, but she is determined to choose her own destiny. But, in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
In “Alice” the relationship between the narrator is basically they’re neighbors which you can tell as the story goes on because she’ll describe what Alice is wearing, her style of living, or what she does on a daily basis for her kids, husband, etc. Meaning that one time the narrator states “Alice of the streets. Gentle walking on long legs. Close- kneed. Careful. Stopping sometimes at our house on her way to unknown places and other people.” Then the narrator stated that she watched Alice grow tired and ill which made her think how she saw Alice’s boys eat cake and soda pop from the corner store for dinner which the narrator thought was a bad way to raise kids but she noticed they always went to bed happily. So from those two details I was
