This evidence proves to us that the coyote is a trickster that developed a clever way to escape the tensions of the buffalo killing him with the idea of giving him new horns and tries to yet again come up with another plan of eating the whole cow instead of eating part by part just as how the buffalo stated. Due to his selfishness, the coyote was forced to eat the whole cow and disobeyed the orders of the buffalo. Later on, the coyote learns his lesson by getting leaned into a false trap of an old woman cooking the cow’s bones for him. Fast forward, he was basically tricked and lost the cow bones from the old woman that he so desperately wanted. When he confronted the buffalo, he noticed that the cow regenerated back to life and it stunned him to see this.
The first reason that Rikki Tikki is not brave but stupid, is that after an angry nagaina took her egg back he followed nagaina when “she plunged into the rat hole” (p.27) he followed suit. Many would call that brave but he was almost guaranteed to die it was a stupid and pointless decision to go down there. There were other safer ways like waiting at the top of the hole so she either dies of starvation or tries to come out and get killed. He was too ignorant to just wait and without thought just dove headfirst into the hole. He was so guaranteed to die that without hesitation, Darzee the bird, began to sing a song of mourning that insured that “It is all over with Rikki Tikki” (p.27).

People are always trying to find a deeper meaning to things. In Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird” she uses other symbols besides the mockingbird, such as the roly poly, rabid dog, and snowman. These symbols contribute to a larger meaning and purpose in the novel and each play a part into the decisions the characters make and foreshadow many events that occur. To start off, the roly poly signifies underprivileged individuals. As Lee states in the novel “Why couldn’t I smash him?
After being oblivious of his own strengths and killing the dog, Lennie says that, “‘Now maybe Geaorge ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits, if he fin’s out you got killed,’” (Steinbeck 121). Furthermore, Lennie’s puppy is one of several symbols that represent the victory of the strong over the weak. Lennie kills the puppy accidentally, as he has killed many mice before, by virtue of his failure to recognize his own strength.

He always said he could run away and not be a burden upon George, but since George only ever helped Lennie, Lennie struggled to grasp a reality of George not being at his side. Likewise, when George finds Lennie in the woods before he kills him, Lennie expects George to yell at him and be angry about him killing Curley’s wife, “Lennie looked eagerly at him.
