The novel reads, “ He’ll go back to Honduras when she is six, even if it is for a brief visit, and he has to make his way back illegally “(Nozario). Enrique seems determined to be apart of his daughter’s life, regardless him leaving her and her mother.

The circumstances had been slightly forced as Finny “dragged” Gene “away at the point of a gun” symbolizes how Finny has pushed Gene to reach this point in their lives. On the contrary, Leper’s casual and public announcement of their friendship is simply dismissive as if displaying that emotion was normal: “I took the telegram from Phineas, facing in advance whatever the destruction was. That was what I learned to do that winter. I have escaped and need help. I am at Christmas location.
He and Mattie are sledding down the large hill near his home when Mattie tells him to steer “Right into the elm tree … So ‘t we’d never have to leave each other any more” (Wharton 71). This was one of the few opportunities that Ethan procures to escape his dismal life at home, yet he messes it up again after thoughts of Zeena poured into his mind, causing him to steer away from his target. This is practically a representation of Ethan’s entire life.

In conclusion, throughout the novel, Ethan Frome is never truly able to carry out his own free will.
Lastly, I would like to briefly mention how the yard sale of Bilbo’s property as he returned home slightly resembles the end of The Odyssey, where the hero Odysseus returns home after much traveling to many unkind strangers crowding his wife and home. Bilbo, too, had to metaphorically fight to reclaim what was his from the many people to whom his properties had been sold.
He vowed to take in and watch over Lennie once his Aunt Clara died. He helps Lennie out by keeping track of his belongings, like the work card, and establishing a safe base that Lennie can always return to, as it is evident he will only continue to cause trouble wherever they find work. Towards the end of the novella, he find himself in trouble again; he accidentally killed the boss’s son’s wife and has to run to the safe zone George said he would meet him at. In George’s last effort to do right by Lennie and his Aunt Clara, he reaches Lennie before the search party is able to by giving them false directions on Lennie’s whereabouts.

Today you will learn about how John Steinbeck symbolizes his characters like, George,Lennie, and Crooks. George cares about lennie because he traveled with him to the ranch. John Steinbeck wants the american dream to seem foolish because he has people talk about owning a ranch/ people lost all of their money.

Both authors use foreshadowing differently to hint at the ending of the story while still keeping the ending hidden from the reader. In “The Interlopers” the narrator states that “In the cold, gloomy forest, with the wind tearing in fitful gusts through the naked branches and whistling round the tree trunks, they lay and waited for the help that would now bring release and succor to both parties” (paragraph 20 lines 169-172). In this instance Saki uses the setting to foreshadow the deaths of Georg and Ulrich from the merciless weather. In the beginning of “The Lottery” the narrator said “Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones, and the other boys soon followed his example, selecting the smoothest and roundest stones; Bobby and Harry Jones and Dickie Delacroix-- the villagers pronounced this name "Dellacroy"--eventually made a great pile of stones in one corner of the square and guarded it against the raids of the other boys” (paragraph 2 line 10). In these lines the author foreshadows that the children will be using the stones for play, until the author later reveals their intended purpose.
She implores him to stay for this night in particular, but he sadly informs her it must be this night. After he has met up with the devil, and he is journeying through the forest he wavers in his purpose. The devil, to reassure him, begins to tell him of all the previous Puritans ( some even his own family) that have walked this same trail before him. “He lets the Devil 's true statements about the mistreatment of Indians and Quakers prepare him to accept counterfeit evidence”(Levin, 693 ) It is easy to see why Goodman Brown would be wary of this commitment considering his strong Puritan neighbors and friends; however, he agrees to go through with the proposition. Once gathered at the meeting place, he begins to recognize many prominent men and women from his society performing lewd and unseemly acts.
