He and Mattie are sledding down the large hill near his home when Mattie tells him to steer “Right into the elm tree … So ‘t we’d never have to leave each other any more” (Wharton 71). This was one of the few opportunities that Ethan procures to escape his dismal life at home, yet he messes it up again after thoughts of Zeena poured into his mind, causing him to steer away from his target. This is practically a representation of Ethan’s entire life.

In conclusion, throughout the novel, Ethan Frome is never truly able to carry out his own free will.
In The Crucible, Miller uses motifs to demonstrate how the idea of witchcraft that spread throughout Salem caused panic and chaos among the townspeople. One of the motifs that Arthur Miller uses to enhance the theme of the story is abandonment. During The Crucible, John Proctor had an affair with Abigail Williams causing Abigail to be fired from working in the Proctor’s household by Elizabeth Proctor. Because of this, Abigail has lost touch with John and he no longer has any feelings for her which has made Abigail feel abandoned. As voiced by Abigail Williams, “John - I am waiting for you every night” (Arthur Miller 1246) and stated by John Proctor, “Abby I never give you hope to wait for me.” (Arthur Miller 1246), It validated how Abigail is waiting for John to come back to her and he continues to tell her that he is never coming back and not to get her hopes

Time, something no one wants to waste because everyone only has a limited amount, some people even less than others.

Another story dealing with time sensitivity is A Monster Calls. This story entails a young boy and his struggle to deal with his monster, his mother 's illness, and the little time he has left with her. Both stories have similar themes that are interpreted very differently.
In our own journeys, we have come across difficult moments where we just felt like stopping simply because of reasons like afraid of failing and the anxieties of not being well prepared. At times like that, it is where we get help from people around us to prepare ourselves for what is about to come. In the 3 stories we had read and watched in this past month, The Alchemist, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Odyssey, they all contained a similarity; a cycle of a hero’s journey. The hero’s journey is a cycle where the initiate travels into the unknown, going through a similar yet different cycle that every hero goes through, accomplishing their journey.

In Perrault 's version of Little Thumbling for example, when he and his brothers are lost find shelter in an ogre 's home, and he fools the ogre to not get eaten making the ogre eat his own daughters. In some endings, the evil ones are punished in a really strong way as a way to show in a very descriptive way how people 's bad behavior or bad choices can have terrible consequences. The Little Mermaid tale tells how the Mermaid had to kill her loved prince to survive, but she does want to do that, so she is converted into sea foam. That is because she wanted to go against her nature and be something different in order to be with her loved prince, but she had to pay with her life for the bad decision of trusting in a witch.
