I was walking home on a path I had never taken before that my friend Sam told me was a shortcut to my house. Before i had left i looked at a clock and to my amazement it was 3:00 A.M. I had considered sleeping over but seeing as i had been there all day and hadn’t packed a single thing to stay the night, My parents were out of town for the next 3 days so they couldn’t bring me anything and my sister was at her boyfriends and wouldn’t care what I needed, so if i wanted to stay I’d have to go home anyway. I nodded to myself with conformation as I continued down the path. I checked my phone it was 3:15.
The theme relates to the “The Pioneers Women’s Story” section specifically when Antonia comes back from Denver, unmarried, secretly pregnant and excluding herself from others. “He never married her Frances said. I haven't seen her since she came back. She lives at home, on the farm, and almost never come to town. She brought the baby in to show it to mama once.
Furthermore, an outsider is a character that is set apart from the established cultural pattern. The most character that was an outsider was Franky, Bernice, and the soldier. Therefore, Franky didn’t feel like she wasn’t part of any club “we”. Bernice is part of the family, but again she’s not part of the family because if they ever move or go somewhere out of the town she can’t go. The soldier didn’t know anybody when he came back in town and he felt unnoticeable because nobody said anything to him at all.
Subject: In William Wordsworth’s “Lucy Gray”, the speaker narrates the story about a young girl named Lucy Gray who disappears in a snow storm. Before she disappears, Lucy Gray spent much time alone and not a lot of people saw her face besides her parents. She becomes lost when she is instructed by her father to take a lantern into town for her mother. When Lucy does not return back home, her worried parents go looking for her and can only find her footprints in the snow leading up to a bridge. I think that by having her footprints in the snow, she is forever part of nature and not completely gone.
The tree that yielded no flowers was compared to the willow tree, a tree that naturally doesn’t have flowers. Willow trees have branches that are bendable, whip-like and swing easily in a breeze. Without being tied down by the weight of the flowers, gave the tree the ability to sway in the wind and nature. If personified, having the ability to sway could mean the flexibility of travel and/or not having many responsibilities. I personally think that Chiyojo compared herself to a tree because she felt like she did not have any flowers
People, like trees, go through phases, they freeze in the winter, becoming nothing but lonely limbs without leaves covered with white slush. Melinda, in a lot of ways, starts out like that it the book. She becomes a shell of herself from before the party happened and because no one else was there, she is lonely and doesn't have anybody to go to and to make matters even worse, she’s covered by the reputation that she has formed. In the book, Laurie Halse Anderson uses symbolism to convey exactly what Melinda can't say. In the beginning of the book, Melinda starts high school carrying her emotional wounds with her after something happens mysterious to her at a party during the summer.
No one walked anymore; no one had the time to, no one wanted to, so Bradbury shows imagery on how no one does this, “The cement was vanishing under flowers and grass. In ten years of walking by night or day...he had never met another person walking.” (pg 174) In the middle of the story, an officer finds Mr. Mead and tells him to stop, “‘Stand still. Stay where you are! Don’t move!’ (pg 174) He halted.” Once the officer pulls him
Practice: I decided to go to my field site for the first time on a Wednesday. I met one of my friends at her dorm around 3:30 so that I could walk with her to the fields. This was a bad idea on my part. She said we were running late and that we had to run there, however I haven’t exercised since my freshman year in high school. When we got to the field there was nobody in sight.
If it’s 2 days by a carriage, I should barely be able to arrive by the end of tomorrow. However, the sun has completely set already. Let’s sleep in the open here today. Since it will only burden the guards with useless anxiety to be here, I decided to take a rest somewhere approximately 1km away from the merchant party. At night, eating canned meal, wiping my body with water produce from magic and after drying the washed undergarment, I now check the area nearby with search magic as I intend to sleep.
We continued to walk down the gleamy and musty hallway, and I became sick over the fact of how long this tunnel went on and on (pg. 215). It must have been nearly 20 minutes when Montresor told me we were only halfway there. “ I was walking slowly down the hallway, as I heard crackling noises beneath my feet, as I leaned down, I saw hundreds and hundreds of bones, but had no idea from which animal they had come from.” For some reason after that, I had felt very eary. As we reached the room i had no indication as of where I was and saw no sign of Amontillado.
