In regards to Shel Silverstein's work, “The giving tree”. The stories interpretation of the relationship between boy and tree is more dangerous then ecologically sensitive. This relationship is totally one one-sided when comparing the relationship of a parent to a child. The tree represents a maternal figure in the story and does anything to keep the boy happy. Unfortunately, the boy is portrayed as Narcissist and only comes to the tree when he needs or wants something.
Can you give me money? ”The boy didn’t think once about what the tree wanted, he just thought of himself. Throughout the story… the one thing the tree wanted was to have the boy climb up her trunk, swing from her branches, eat apples, play in her shade, and be happy. But as the tree gives all it has to the boy… she never really gets what she wants. Being greedy is not a good thing in life, and I feel that this poem helps people understand it a lot
I can go away any time”(13). He requests that it would better off for George and everyone else if he is alone, even though he wants someone to talk to and be with. None of the other people really like Lennie on the farm and especially when the climax of the story happened he was dreadfully hated. Everyone was out to get him and George is the only one looking out for him. This is one of the reasons Lennie never wants George to leave he
Then “suddenly it was deathly quiet, we had all frozen. Nobody in my family had ever hit me, nobody”(Hinton 50). Darry didn’t mean to hit Ponyboy, however, as the eldest brother in this family, he was so angry that his little brother challenged his authority at that moment. Darry always gets mad at Ponyboy without asking the reason for Ponyboy’s affairs. Darry still treats Ponyboy as a little child who doesn’t understand anything, but Ponyboy is already a teenager, he has his own thoughts.
People that love each other unconditionally always provide support and love for that person. In The Giving Tree Shel Silverstein uses the relationship between a tree and a boy to demonstrate unconditional love. As a young boy the tree gives the boy apples to eat and gives him shade to lay under. The boy also has a place to play; ¨Come boy, swing on my branches.” Tree gives the boy his branches so he could build a house. Tree trunk to build boat because the boy wanted to travel.
When Jack challenges Ralph’s authority by saying that the conch does not count on that part of the island. Ralph examines the ranks of boys and sees that “there was no help in them and he looked away, confused and sweating” (Golding 166). The diction of “no help” reveals that Ralph feels isolated from the others because there is nobody to support him. Here, Jack’s power makes others fear him and hence, do what Jack is doing. In this case it is going against Ralph.
In the end, he has words of the wiser to leave the readers stunned and inspired. Ponyboy goes through the first stage of the hero 's journey as shown when he claims he is different from his family and friends and he has good grades which its stereotypical for people of his status not to have good grades. Ponyboy is set apart from the rest of the greasers because he likes to watch movies and books he describes his brothers as “never cracks a book” and “ works to hard to be interested in a story” he also states he isn 't like the other greasers because “ nobody in our gang digs movies and books the way I do”
Lennie is like a little boy; he makes things that little kids make. For example when Lennie said this to George: “I don’t like this place George. This aint no good place. I want to get outa here.” With that words Lennie demonstrate that he has the personality of a little boy, he just look at things like a child. He wasn’t comfortable in the ranch so he wanted to leave, and that is exactly how a little boy acts.
Throughout the whole story the boy is being very unappreciative of what he now has and that he has made it all about himself but finally, he realizes that it is what it is and he is going to have to deal with it. Soto uses the boys context, “I went outside with my jacket across my arm,” to show that the boy is still very unappreciative of this “jacket” that he is forever stuck with. This choice of words emphasizes the point that this brother of his came into his world and wrecked it so that caused the boy to not be acceptant of the boy because he totally turned his life upside down. Quickly after the boys actions Soto includes, “I started up the alley and soon slipped into my jacket, that ugly green brother who breathed over my shoulder that day and ever since.” What Soto is trying to say is that the boy is now realizing that he is going to have to deal with this brother of his because he is actually very fortunate to have him. No matter what the boy tries to do to get his new brother away, he will always be there and that is just something that the boy is going to have to understand and learn how to cope
He turns his business into a profitable factory. However, the Lorax emerges from the stump of the trees and disapproves the felling of the trees, complaining that the factory has polluted the air and the water. Once the last tree is chopped down, the factory closes and the Lorax leaves. Where he last stood is a small stump engraved with a single word: "UNLESS". The Once-ler ponders this message for a long time until a boy comes to him and he realises “UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
But of course, my husband won’t have that, he says he doesn’t even know me because I’m finally speaking my mind. I want him and his terrible wife out of here, I’ll even pay out of my own pocket for them a place to stay. But, Anne doesn’t want Peter gone and Peter doesn’t was to stay if his father goes… Why does Peter care if his sorry excuse of a father goes, he was selfish and stealing food that was supposed to go to Peter. Mr. Dussel is the only one who sees Mr. Van Dann as wrong but he’s always been sort of paranoid so I’m unsure he’d help to much, he’s over there counting out potatoes and Margot 's trying to get him to stop. Everyone, including myself, freeze as the buzzer (indicating Miep is here) goes off.
Yet, they all are scared of him. Jem, Scout, and Dill all are scared of Boo Radley and they still want to see what he looks like. After the kids find the gifts in the tree, they think that Mr. Radley isn 't scary after all. The kids think that he 's scary but nice. 14.
The boys refuse to listen to him because he is an outsider and attempts to impose his parent-like nature upon them, which they dislike because they have finally escaped the power adults had over them. He is at the stem of the other’s road to savagery, and once he dies the island turns to complete chaos with no hope of turning back. Piggy represents the authority and morals the boys had left behind when they crashed, and the boys hated him for it because he is a constant reminder of everything they’ve ever
Even though the man tell his child that they are the “good guys”, he ignores others who need help. When the man and his child spotted the man who was struck by lightning, the child asked his papa to help him. However the man said to his child, “But we have nothing to give him. We have no way to help him. I’m sorry for what happened to him but we cant fix it” (McCarthy, 50).
