The grandmother brought along Pitty Sing on the vacation due to her fear of it asphyxiating himself by brushing against a gas burner (pg.243). The grandmother’s concealment of the cat was the cause of the car accident that ultimately cost everyone in the vehicle lives except Pitty Sing’s. during the conclusion of the story O’Conner points out an almost seemingly smug Pitty Sing is brushing against The Misfit’s legs. In hindsight, the grandmother ultimately succeeded in preserving the cat’s life at the expense of her and her family.
She carefully sneaks her cat into the car, and later down the road the cat sneaks out, jumps on the drivers face, and causes them to have a wreck. As seen in the article “A Good Man is Hard To Find” it states “The grandmother never turns her critical eye on herself to inspect her own hypocrisy, dishonesty, and selfishness. For example, the conscience the grandmother invokes at the beginning of the story is conveniently silent when she sneaks Pitty Sing (the

The book I choice to read was, “Brian’s Winter”, by Gary Paulsen. This book is about Brian after the private plane he was flying in crashes in to the rugged forests of Canada. Brian went through many struggles while trying the best he could to survive in the harsh environment. Some of the biggest events in this story include when he is attacked by a bear, during the major storms and some of his questionable encounters with the wolves.

The snow Walls pressed him on every side, and a great surge of fear swept
I was separated from humans to bite, so I bit and scratched myself instead.” He discusses of how he “became a fully-fledged monster once a month.” Another layer of fear is added when reading about the werewolf because Rowling states, “the werewolf actively seeks humans in preference to any other prey.” The modern version of a werewolf is that a man becomes a blood-thirsty creature once a month when a full moon is out. To become a werewolf in Rowling’s world, one will have to be bitten by a werewolf in its wolfish form. The ancient Greek sources differ on the explanation of this creature.

It seems as though Ovid’s version of the werewolf would be a wolf forever.
