In “The Black Cat”, Poe wrote about a man who gets two new cats, and begins to loathe them. When he decides to kill both cats, he kills one successfully, but his house burns down afterward. When he attempts to kill the second cat, he kills his wife instead. Edgar Allan Poe uses writing techniques such as past tense beginning, main character insanity, and murder to create creepy and engaging stories. The first trait used by Poe is past tense beginning.
Jacobs, is a horror story because it talks about the controversy between the cursed monkey’s paw, and the consequences of people wishing on the monkey’s paw. The first citation that was made was to show that the Whites were greedy so they immediately wish for two hundred pounds. Then a representative from the company herbert worked at, came to inform Mr. and Mrs. White of Herbert’s death. After, Mrs. White urges Mr. White to wish Herbert back to life, now that they now the paw actually does really grant wishes. Mr. White makes the wish to bring Herbert back and Herbert comes back to the house and knocks at the door.
Based on the above definition, the novel Of Mice and Men is a tragedy because Lennie can be considered a basically good person because he always attempts to do the right things, such as on page 43 when he explains how he didn’t intend to hurt the pups but that he just wanted to pet them. The novel Of Mice and Men can also be considered a tragedy because Lennie’s death on page 106 provokes the emotions of pity and fear in the reader. However, based on the above definition, the novel Of Mice and Men is not a tragedy because Lennie is not important to society.
One comparison is that both narrators’ victims were people whom they cared about and loved immensely. In “The Black Cat,” the writer kills his wife only because she gets in the way while he is trying to harm the cat. The text states, “...this blow was arrested by the hand of my wife. Goaded, by the interference, into a rage more than demoniacal, I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain.” This sentence from the story shows how furious the writer was. In “The Tell-Tale Heart,” the writer kills the man because of his “vulture eye.” The writer states, “I loved the old man.
Also in “How Coyote Steals Fire” women are seen as less than men are, we know this because the women dice were worth less than the men dice were. But in “Master Cat” women are seen as like a prize to men, we know this because to everyone marrying the princess was a prize she was very sought after. Finally what the Coyote did by stealing fire was beneficial to society, it would give people heat, light, and a way to cook food. While what Master Cat did only helped himself, and his master because all he did was try to get them wealthy. There is obvious similarities and differences in “How Coyote Steals Fire” and “Master Cat”.
In my opinion, it may be the revealing of the sentiments towards the upper classes in France –sentiments that later led to the Reign of Terror during the Revolution. The resentment towards the bourgeois became so encompassing, that the violence shifted from animal abuse to literally killing the French nobility. It began because of the mistreatment of the apprentices by their journeymen and masters under the guild system. A man by the name of Nicolas Contat was so angry that his boss’s cat was better cared for, that he snuck onto roofs mimicking feline noises. This perturbed the man so much that he authorized Contat to rid them of the cats.
Poe hung the cat, so he would no longer feel guilty for the crime that he committed against the cat. In the first part of the story, The Black Cat, guilt caused the narrator to kill the cat that he had previously injured. The role quilt played, however, changed as the story went on. A new cat ended up showing up at Poe’s house and him and his wife decided to keep it. At first, Poe liked the cat, but it began reminding him more and more of the cat that he had killed.
Moreover, Sergeant-Major Morris prompts the family that he can not be blamed for anything that happens due to the danger of the paw. Another example of foreshadowing is when Mr. White says there is a “Hark at the wind.” This is foreshadowing because the heavy wind blows through the house at the end of the story when Herbert is wished away by Mr.
The white rose in Carter’s The Tiger’s Bride is a metaphor that represents the female protagonist throughout the story. The story also had some other themes of the superiority of masculinity. The father was heavily addicted to gambling, and continued to bet all his money and possessions away. The daughter had to watch her sick father deal her life anyway for the pleasure of possibly winning big. The beast hands her a white rose when she and the father enter the house.

At the beginning of the novel, Jem is on the pre-conventional level; therefore, he acts childlike and wants to avoid punishment. The reason that Jem reacts this way because he does not want to be punished by society or the authority. In the novel, it implies: “ Atticus ain 't ever whipped me since I can remember. I wanta keep it that way” (Lee 56). This suggests that Jem is in the stage of obedience and punishment since he undertakes not wanting to disobey his father and does not want to be punished.
Lennie and George’s strong bond, however, is a point in favor of keeping the book accessible to all. For example, George cares for Lennie, and though he could leave at any time, he chooses to ensure that Lennie is safe. Furthermore, while George does shoot Lennie at the end, it is to protect him, in a way. Curley had sworn to kill Lennie, and George knew that Lennie could not escape, so he shot Lennie before Curley could. In addition, the book does not present George as having enjoyed killing Lennie, in fact, it is quite the opposite.
