“She crept out along the swaying oak limb at last, and took the daring step across into the old pine-tree” (Jewett). Here is the scary shift to the point of no return. Once she takes that step, she is forced to have her view expanded. The pine tree “seemed to lengthen itself out as she went up, and to reach farther and farther upward” (Jewett). Picture the branches spiraling towards the sky.
In the beginnning of the story Skyes pretends to have a snake fall near her by placing a whip a moving it in a slithering motion, and Delia says ¨Skyes, what you throw dat whip on me like dat? You know it would skeer me—looks just like a snake,an´ you knows how skeered Ah is of snakes.¨ He did this because he enjoys seeing her in fear because that’s his goal, but her evolution has no longer let him do that. Until one day after many days of being together in silence, Skyes appears once again at the house. This time with a soap box that he left but Delia didn’t pay much attention to it. It wasn’t until Skyes suspiciously said ¨Look in de box dere Delia, Ah done brung yuh somethin´!¨.
Also, there are snow covered tree branches and patches of snow and ice on the path every now and then. Another spot in the book is when he starts to leave the shack before everything changes. “The snowbanks had vanished, and summer wildflowers began to color the borders of the trail and the forest as far as he could see. Robins and finches darted after one another among the trees.” (Page 82 WM. Paul Young) The reader can even feel the warm air rush upon them immediately after reading this excerpt from the book.
(Welty 275). Once she followed the path running up the hill Phoenix over view of things became at ease.” After she got to the top she turned and gave a full, serve look behind her where she had come. “Up though pines,” she said at length “Now down through oaks.””(Welty 275) Stumbling upon more natural
The maze is constantly changing and the doors to the maze close at night which leaves the grievers (monsters of the maze) to come out and kill whoever got left behind in the maze. Both Moana and The Maze Runner by James Dashner use characterization to show the key trait of a literary hero is bravery. Both of the movies have examples of the main characters being brave and stepping up to a chance of death to save their friends. Moana finale makes it to the where she has to restore the heart, but she comes across the monster Te Ka.

As she enters the town riddled with Christmas decorations, she encounters friendly people and towns woman willing to help tie a shoe lace for Phoenix since she was unable to do so herself in her elderly age.

“her servants saw she had fallen on the blade, the sword frothed with blood, and her hands were stained.“ (Virgil, Trans. Kline 636-637) After Aeneas leaves Dido, she goes mad and ends up stabbing herself with Aeneas’ sword because she could not handle being without him. It was this moment in time, when her feelings for Aeneas were so strong that her emotions took over her, that caused her to commit suicide. However, another reason for Dido’s death was due to the fact that Aeneas left her despite his feelings for Dido just because he wanted to fulfill what the gods had intended him to do. Ultimately, the strong emotion of love caused Dido to lose her will to
As she was walking through the woods she begins to have trouble seeing through the trees, because of the light and the thickness of the forest, “ The woods were deep and still. The sun made the pine needles almost too bright to look at, up where the wind rocked.” As she eases her way through the forest she encounters struggle after struggle, such as having to cross the river on a log, “Lifting her skirt, leveling her cane fiercely before her like a festival figure in some parade, she began to march across. Then she opened her eyes and she was safe on the other side,” yet she never stops her journey, because she knows that the outcome of the journey will be worth it. The theme of perseverance is shown in many ways, because Phoenix Jackson is the embodiment of perseverance in many ways. At any point in her journey she could have stopped, decided it was too much, and gone home, but instead she did not.
I punctured the knife through the snake’s scales so I could have something to hold onto. The snake was advancing so rapidly it could not halt before it smashed into the enclosure.
