The simile, ’spooky as hell’, has a mysterious and frightening tone. No one truly knows what hell is like but its negative connotations provide a vivid image of how frightening Perry can be. In the novel In Cold Blood it's described that Perry had a strong relationship with his father, but as Perry got older it worsened. The simile, "I loved my father but there were times when this love and affection I had for him drained from my heart like wasted water", "like wasted water" can represent that Perry did love his father but once Perry grew older he realized that he didn't love him anymore, and that his affection towards his father was wasted as it led to no positive outcome. This shows that Perry had some issues with his father, which could have affected his personality later on, as one needs to feel the love of a parent.
The Odyssey Many people deem Odysseus to be an archetype hero. But was he really? Sure, he won many wars, but did he show the characteristics that matter? No! Odysseus did not tell the full truth to his men, he slept with the goddesses and he was impatient.
Her relationship with Milkman starts off strong, but the more she loves him, the more he just uses her to appease his sexual desires instead of establishing a strong, loving relationship with her. Milkman eventually grows out of his former feelings for Hagar, and then abandons her, leaving her distraught and heartbroken. The overarching theme of abuse towards women regarding their comparable experiences is what makes these women’s stories unique in both the bible and Song of Solomon (SparkNotes

This is the POV of the Cyclopes from book nine of The Odyssey. (Homer 368) “New Reality” I tell myself each time I trek outside my cave in hopes to restock my food supply and perhaps try to enjoy the fresh air. The same fresh air my father took a mighty breath of before betraying all of my brothers and sisters including myself. Leaving us in this abyss we call “New Reality”. So yeah, you wouldn’t exactly expect me to be the “happiest” mighty Cyclopes out there.
While Minive has been dreaming of long lost days, as he’s “thought, and thought, and thought, and thought about it,” he’s been wasting his life away. “Miniver Cheevy, born too late, scratched his head and kept on thinking; Miniver coughed, and called it fate, and kept on drinking.” Here the reader realizes that Miniver, himself, is the only thing holding him back from the greatness he sees in the past. Instead of making something of himself he “scorned the gold he sought,” and got drunk instead of working. The past was full of harder work than Miniver does, yet he wants to be a part of it. The irony here, is that had he been born in the time periods he loves, he would not have received any of the things that make him linger in the past so long.
When my older brother goes, he’ll continue to give me a mountainous amount of attitude as he talks. When my older baby brother goes, he’ll still call my car cheap as he revs up his engine. And finally, when my younger sister goes, she’ll still be frustrated and angry with any mentions of the Wizard of Oz being in relation to her and blush and giggle with any mention of her fictitious honeys. Without them I would be cold inside and out. That’s probably why the sun is so warm and bright because all the souls gather there to watch their loved ones, still arguing with us giving off the blistering heat and silent treatments of cool weather
The Epic of Gilgamesh talks about King Gilgamesh. In the beginning he was not a great leader and so Enkidu was sent to him to help him. Which he did a great job with, and Gilgamesh and Enkidu became best friends (Lecture). Then later on Enkidu is about to die and Gilgamesh does not understand how to deal with this, and so he goes on a quest to find eternal life. He stumbles upon Siduri, a female tavern keeper, who tells him to be happy in the moment and stop his search.
Characterization: John has a lifelong craving for love, something so powerful he went to war over it. It also inspires his magic and career in politics.

Symbol: The mirror is an escape for John.
In Gilgamesh’s quest for the literal mortality, however, many characters along his path raised their concerns for what immortality and its consequences in reality signifies. Both Siduri and Utanapishtim warn Gilgamesh that being too focused on the alluding desire for immortality is not all it seems to be and question his decision to pursue it while wasting his mortal existence on a futile hunt for something that is unattainable. As Gilgamesh returns empty-handed to Uruk he marvels on the wonders of his city where he is ruler and king. Through his accomplishments in architecture, culture, and literature Gilgamesh will come close to achieve the initial and figurative immortality that he sought in the beginning of epos. To be remembered beyond one’s own lifetime as a type of immortality was likely the second best realistic alternative for the epic hero as Rachel Galvin describes in her article
Huck helps them hide by welcoming them on board. One of them is around 70, and the other looks like he is in his 30’s. It turned out that they did not really know each other. They were both running away from a similar problem, so they decided to team up. The man who was around 30 sold toothpaste that took the enamel off of peoples teeth and the other man was in charge of a “Temperance Revival Meeting”, but he found out that he really liked to drink.
“Aye but nothing my ship and my crew couldn 't handle, so tell me about your year. It must have been amazing traveling all over,” he leaned in, listening intently and Emma blanked. She tried to think off ways to rework her year with fins into a plausible story. “I explored everywhere that I could, large kingdoms and little hamlets. I mostly stayed by the coast if I could,” Emma hoped that her answer would satisfy him, “Tell me about your year, taking the high seas into the palm of your hand.” Hook launched into a tale about how he and his crew narrowly avoided capture by a king 's naval ship, taking with them more riches than they even knew what to do with.
