As a child, I enjoyed reading because I was able to go into a different world and travel through other people's minds. It also allowed me to learn about other cultures and household values that were different from my own at home. Classic fairy tales are part of our childhood to teach us about right and wrong through stories that demonstrate cause and effect situations that have consequences because we are developing our own morals. What people don't know is that the fairy tales we are exposed to are the “children friendly” versions and even then often the morals in them are really meant for adults. On the other hand, the original versions expose violence and contradicting acts to what's right in our society.
Looking into the story “A Good Man is Hard To Find”, you can determine that this story has a rather dark and thrilling story plot. Even more so when you start to dig deeper into learning more information about a character and the way they function and present themselves in a story. All the characters in this story have great information to offer, but the most prominent character is the grandmother who constantly is causing trouble, and uncertainty. The grandmother, of all characters, has the most promising personality to look deeper into. By looking deeper into the meaning of a character, we can infer good information about the story, and how a characters personality can affect the plot.
Both Maria Tatar and Vanessa Joosen 's essays argue about the pivotal role of fairy tales in children 's empowerment. On one hand, Tatar claims that "the magical power embedded in language" (Tatar 57) is the key to "grant a form of agency unknown to the child who has not yet fully developed the capacity to learn language" (57). On the other hand, Joosen contends that reading numerous retelling of fairy tales can "make children and adolescents […] aware of issues and possible interpretations in these texts which they had not noticed before. [Thus leading] to a greater alertness and understanding when they read similar stories in the future" (Joosen 131). Therefore, even though both of the essays ' theses aim to explicate a way for children to obtain power, they do so on fundamentally different premises.
Adding on, Twain’s original publishing of his book promotes historical accuracy and legitimacy which would be not communicated towards the audience if the books are recirculated with different words to “child proof” them. His works need to be recognized by the various people that believe that his books are too mature for children that he targets a more mature audience. It is wrong to alter something that is so deeply rooted in history, just to meet the demands of society resulting in the loss of many lessons embedded in his work. Overall, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a brilliant work of literature that isn’t
“Cinderella” is a fable based on a moral lesson, that if you are pure and good at all times then you will eventually get what you deserve. This is a lesson that many want to convey so there are many versions of “Cinderella” like one of the first stories : “Cinderella” by the Brothers Grimm, there is also a more modern version a poem “Cinderella” written by Anne Sexton. The Brothers Grimm version is a traditional story with a interesting tone, and a not so specific pattern in its literature. The poem by Anne Sexton has altered the traditional tone and the literature pattern to be more direct. The modern work draws on from from the former story by having a plot that is in the exact same manner, and the theme again is a virtual subject that must
The Booted Cat highlights the importance of being clever and sharp in order to move up in society, even when you have to cheat people. Given that these original stories changed through the years softening their content, and adapting it to each period behaviors, they are now more accessible to children, and can help them to improve their communication skills and creative thinking. However, in order to teach them such skills is not necessary to only rely in ancient fairy tales with ambiguous moral, nowadays there is a large amount of new fantasy books that can fit better for our times and help them develop their
Thomas Jefferson once said,“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” This quote can be taken much deeper, with the understanding that the past is just that, history. Of course history still affects the future today, but people focus more on moving forward rather than dwelling on the past. In Sandra Cisneros’ “The House on Mango Street” the author illustrates the idea, using her family members’ past, other residents of Mango Street, and Esperanza discovering who she is, that while the past can make up parts of a person, it does not have to be their whole identity. Instead it can be a way in which the person can develop in the future. Within Esperanza’s family, members often repeat the pattern of falling short of success, never making it out on their own and being able to support themselves.
There’s always going to be something in a person’s life that overcomes them with anxiety, but, like most things, that instance of a problem will fade with time and be overshadowed by a new one seemingly as mentally-debilitating as the last. However, this way of life wasn’t created by the modern age of people attempting to go through life too fast, but has been a potent aspect of life since the evolution of sentient beings. In the 1800s, for instance, this was a key idea being thrown around by transcendentalist who were trying to surpass their human lives and see the absolute reality of the world. One key transcendentalist of this time recognized this problem and put herself against societal norms in order to search for the instructions to
People have experiences on a day-to-day basis, some small, some large, but they all shape who they are, and in turn affect their values for the good or for the bad. They are best shown through literature, since it allows for realistic life experiences to be created in fictitious worlds. Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Judith Ortiz Cofer’s “Abuela Invent the Zero” both demonstrate the protagonist developing more appropriate values from important life experiences. In each of these classic stories, the main characters, Tom and Constancia, both have life experiences that shape them to cherish new things and value ideas that cause them to become more suitable, and rational people. Tom Sawyer, the protagonist of The Adventures of Tom
Of course it has a bias and that despite the best education, some children become examples of unfortunate people, while others have lived next to a lot of pain fail to walk the path of happiness. All this shows that this world is a wonderful and magical and that it hides much more than any of us can imagine. But I still can draw some conclusions that are largely the creators of our emotions. What creates our life and our happiness? The Company creates Education From society depends on what will be our education because society shapes our teachers who then, after the shape us.
I feel that evoking a goddess or god to help me in my magical work could be very helpful. I’d love to work with evoking archetypes, I feel that it could be a great way for me to bring in the changes I would like to see in myself and life. I have some experience in evoking my animal spirit guides and overcoming a deep set anxiety problem I had with great success. It was a very positive experience and very effective. I feel that knowing and understanding what the term evoke means is very important.
Children must be given the opportunity to observe, gather data, experiment, compare, and formulate hypotheses when reading informational books (Norton 499). Organization is also very important when writing informational books. The ideas in the book must be broken down carefully to make them easy for children to read and understand. The style must, also be accurate and not too difficult for children of a certain age to understand what was written in the books (Norton
Whatever the parent has for the child will likely determine the success rate. There will likely be a few outliers that motivate themselves to prove this data wrong, but the data is logical. Someone is likely to succeed more if they are given the tools from a parent who has been also very educated then a child who has a parent that is uneducated (170). I think this is not a case of causation, but a case of correlation. Parent’s who have succeed in life always will give a lot more motivation and resources than a parent who likely is working a job without much motivation and a lack of resources (175).
