“Suddenly, this little woods-girl is horror-stricken to hear a clear whistle not very far away” (Jewett). The stranger, who carries a gun and professes himself to murdering the animals that Sylvia holds dear demands the location of “the white heron” and promises “ten dollars to anybody who could show it” to him (Jewett). Sylvia, who has always lived a humble life, dreams of what riches the ten dollars could buy, but acknowledges the high price paid in love. As the stranger lingers, he gives Sylvia little gifts, ensnaring her in his manipulative trap like one of his birds. Paralyzed with indecision, Sylvia faces a choice between the life that she has come to love and the seductive words and promises of a stranger who would destroy it.
Coming of Age When people begins maturing and coming of age they are forced to make decisions that will forever shape the way they are. In “A White Heron” by Sarah Orne Jewett, Sylvia is faced with a decision to either tell the hunter of the heron’s location and condemn it to death or to conceal the heron’s location and preserve the life of the bird. Although the question seems superficial, there is a much deeper question at hand as to what kind of person Sylvia sees herself becoming. She has the option to stay true to her values or betray them for money and promises offered by the hunter. Along with her age, Jewett demonstrates Sylvia’s youth by the innocence she sees in the world around her.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Tanner’s house trying to help Mr. Tanner find the Ivory-billed woodpecker and this creates the mood of hopeful.On page 27, it said”When she got home that night,covered in mud,exhausted,her neck sore from looking up all day,she told her family she was giving up.Gills ever give up Hannah’s father said...we will help you Hannahs mother said”(smith). This confirms that hannah won’t stop looking for the ivory-billed woodpecker because Gills never give up.Then Hannah’s family will help hannah to look for the woodpecker to so that Mr.Tanner can have his property protected. In contrast,In “Following Boo”,Nathan goes inside the woods tripping and and getting cut by the things around him but then the cut on his foot disappears when he puts his foot in a stream,this creates a mood of interested.An example is “Let’s go, I finally told Boo.And that’s when I noticed it:The skin on my feet was completely healed-new as baby’s skin.How could that be possible?I shivered”(pyron).Based on this evidence the setting creates the mood interested because from that detail Nathens foot got healed as new as baby’s skin. That would interest someone because skin does not heal out of nowhere. In conclusion, these two stories have setting that creates two different moods.
The prompt to the story “The White Heron” briefly describes Sylvia on her quest to find the white heron she had seen before. Jewett’s use of imagery makes the setting a lot more vivid in the readers mind, as if he/she were Sylvia. And through this imagery and point of view, we learn that she clearly knows her way around the woods and that she was also ordered by this “stranger” to find the heron’s nest. Through Sylvia’s description of the stranger, we can infer that he/she must be a hunter of some sorts trying to kill the heron. Although there is not much direct evidence of the importance of the heron to Sylvia, we can infer that the heron’s importance can go both ways as the stranger most likely will give Sylvia a reward for finding the heron
Them “picking their wheat” is them taking all the food and drink. Penelope is not too keen on the idea of marrying one of the suitors but “love[s] to watch them all.” This indicates that she might have enjoyed having the suitors around because it would have made her feel better during her grief because of the extra attention. This is why Penelope would have been sad when they were all killed because she had become attached to the suitors over the years. However, the sadness swiftly faded after being comforted and reminded that the eagle had liberated her from them. The eagle is Odysseus coming home from his journey and killing all of the suitors who have been dominating his home for 20 years.

Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder’s “Whoso list to hunt” encompasses the love of a man for a beautiful, yet unattainable woman. Wyatt compares the unattainable love to the hunt of a hind, a female deer. The first quatrain introduces the hunt to the readers. The second quatrain counters the idea of hunting the female and rather acknowledges the task as unimaginable. The focus of the third quatrain regards the new idea that the female belongs to somebody else.
