The Thing in the Forest by A.S. Byatt is a fairytale like story that takes place during World War II. It captivates its reader with a mysterious lack of detail, keeping the fairytale aspect up to the imagination.

In the beginning of the book, Hester Prynne is being shamed by the whole town, Hawthorne writes that Hester sees someone she knows walking along the edges of the forest, we later find out that the man she sees is Roger Chillingworth. Hawthorne portrays Chillingworth as evil, because he came from the forest, and in the book, nature is evil.

Hawthorne is illustrating the fact that nature reflects our mood.
In the closer tree, three half-bird, half-woman creatures called Harpies peck at the tree-souls branches and clearly cause it discomfort. Dante and Virgil are also told that when a soul is cast to this forest, it starts as a sapling and is abused by the Harpies. This could be the reason why the roots of the trees shown are so deformed. The last detail Dante and Virgil hear is how the former bodies of the tree-souls are later hung on their branches and left for them to see the body that they once abandoned. Having text to accompany this illustration helps your mind paint a picture of old, gnarled, oak trees with blood coming out of the branches.

To Kill A Mockingbird Although Scout did not speak very much during this part of the book I think some of her comments and actions caused a colossal impact on how Jem responded to the dare. Jem, still a child, wants to look like he is capable of doing things right, being the second man of the house. It seems Jem feels like he has a moral obligation to be right in every way, and look strong in from of his younger friends, and sister.

The children in these stories did not take the adults authority seriously and even seemed to strong arm their way to get what they wanted. In the case of Peter and Wendy, they got whatever they sought after because their parents did not have to play an active role in their caretaking, the HappyLife Home performed the task for them. George and Lydia confronted the children about spending so much time in the veldt, but they denied it. Peter told Wendy to go see, and while she was away she changed it to a forest with a singing Rema. She bluntly lied to her parents which shows she knew it was wrong to spend so much time watching animals kill.
