But they cannot get too comfortable because they learn there is a new enemy which is the mother. So due to that Beowulf is not done helping out, and same with the dragon appearing. The crisis Beowulf faces is when he faces death two times. When Beowulf was fighting Grendel and his mother he overcomes death especially when he fights with Grendel’s mom because she could have easily killed him but he was too powerful. Also the same thing with defeating the dragon.
Freak the Mighty is a 9 foot tall warrior who goes around slaying dragons and fools. One example of when they need each other is when Kevin and Max are running from the Tony D and his gang. One quote that shows an example of this idea is “... they never knew it was Freak who rescued me or his genius brain and my big dumb body” (Philbrick, Page 41). this quote shows that Max may not think much of his part of Freak the Mighty, but his body combined with Freak’s big brain. They are stronger together than apart.
Hercules strength was a beneficial trait throughout the novel, but at a point it became a horrendous trait he possessed. At the beginning, Hamilton introduced Hercules strength as a very powerful weapon he possessed. She stated “ Hera used hers against him with terrible effect and in the end he was killed by magic, but nothing that lived in the air, sea, or on land ever defeated him” (226). Hercules was undefeated by any natural thing, but his step-mom’s power brought Hercules down. Another way Hamilton explains how powerful his physical strength was by saying “[during the darkest midnight when all was silent in the bourse two great snake came crawling into the nursery...the children woke up and Iphicles screamed and got out of bed, but Hercules sat up and grasped the deadly creatures by the throat...They were dead.” (227-228).
So we know that he cares enough about those people not to hurt or insult them voluntarily. For the metaphor the most important was “Ahead of you lies a long road paved with suffering”(Wiesel,41). One of the guards used this metaphor to tell the prisoners how truly awful their time in camp will be, infinite and very painful. Lastly, the most significant hyperbole was “We went off to work as usual, our bodies frozen”(Wiesel,78). Of course, there bodies weren’t actually frozen, but they might as well be.
Elizabeth was Victor’s cousin, sister, playmate, mother figure for Victor’s siblings and wife. Who was Elizabeth to Victor? All of these contradicting titles for Elizabeth put Victor in a hard place, and begins his disinterest and frustration with Elizabeth. However, the main event that pushes Victors frustration to submerged hostility was the death of Mrs. Frankenstein. Victor believed that Elizabeth was to be blamed for his mother’s death, if Elizabeth was not ill then his mother would not have attended to her and she would have not fell ill as well.
Mel being a cardiologist and attending “five years in a seminary” appears to represent the authority figure in the matter of love and can not view love as being anything but “spiritual love.” Despite Terri repetitively trying to convince him that her previous husband’s acts were his “own way of loving her” As time progresses further, however, Mel’s subtle displays begin to turn into signs of hostility towards others, including Terri. While debating on whether he should call his children, for fear that his ex-wife Marjorie will answer, Mel explains his deep desire that she gets “stung to death by a swarm of fucking bees” ( Carver, 153). While doing so he also turns “his fingers into bees and buzzes them at Terri’s throat” (Carver, 153). Although he stated that the bees would be intended for Marjorie, it seems strange to be performing this act towards Terri unless he is harboring some feeling of dislike for her as well. With the amount of alcohol consumed and the before mentioned subtlety bitter remarks towards one another, it is possible that Mel was viewing Terri as some form of continuation of Marjorie.

"Mable I 'm going to assume you referred to yourself in the third person again considering that she-devil is anything but lovely."

"Just when I thought I left all this paranormal crap behind me."
Clawd gasped, backing away in shock. They all fell silent, then Howleen turned to her sister and pushed her in the chest. “Go away!” Howleen snapped. “Leave him alone!” When Clawdeen got a safe distance away, Howleen knelt down beside Valentine and looked him over. “Are you okay?” Valentine took several deep breaths, sitting up and burying his face in his hands.
Her normal meekness towards Sykes is gone and when she said “Ah hates you, Sykes” (72) then continued to tell him how extremely much she hates him, I knew with certainty she had enough and was going to do something. Tension increased even more when she was almost became the next meal for the rattle snake. When she left the house and let Sykes walk in without warning him, I was glad and hoped he would get bitten since he really deserved it. He did get what he deserved and I thought it was a pretty good ending. I also remembered that on page 67, Delia said to herself, “Oh well, whatever goes over the Devil’s back, is got to come under his
I wonder if this series of books will ever end with The Guardians conquering the evil Pure Ones. The past few books have identified who started the evil group and it has been constant battle. I would like to see good prevail and the owls that have had rough lives find some peace. I am surprised that Eglantine has become so consumed by her will to find her parents. Her character has changed from a mild mannered owl throughout the series.
