By using an excessive amount of comas, she is able to capture the rush. An example of this is when Sylvia takes her “daring step across into the old pine-tree” (35) and finds out the task at hand is harder than believed. The run on sentence describing the difference of the oak tree to the pine tree allows the reader to infer the danger present and allows Sylvia to be portrayed even more as a heroine. Jewett utilizes narrative pace is again when youthful Sylvia is almost to the summit, describing how she is becoming part of the tree by successfully defeating its obstacle like “all the hawks, and bats, and moths” (50) and the animals, who for centuries have been known to use this tree. It is with this that narrative pace is used to help dramatize the heroine’s adventure to the top of an unknown
In the first story, Joan Aiken did a marvelous job of creating a setting in a modern day forest; involving the characters of Mr. Peters, the king of the Forest, Leita, and Rhea, the tale created a sad and mournful tone. The second story, The Monkey’s Paw, featured a setting of a house in England during the late 1800s. The characters of Mr. and Mrs. White were introduced, along with their son Herbert and Sergeant-Major Morris to create a dreadful and sinister tone. As for main conflict, Mr. Peters had to help his wife return to her natural state, while Mr. and Mrs. White had to cope with their son’s death. While both stories had a previously explained similar overall resolution, the two opposing characters still used their last wishes for different reasons.
Melinda is constantly drawing and relating to trees in the book. She at first thinks the task of drawing a tree is easy, but she soon realizes it is harder than it seems. Melinda can easily picture a tree in her mind, but she can not draw it. This relates to Melinda before and after she was raped by Andy Evans. Before the rape, Melinda is represented by the tree when she says, “I can see it in my head: a strong old oak tree with a wide scarred trunk and thousands of leaves reaching to the sun”(78).
I attempted to convey the sense of wonder and nature I felt while on the trip, and I think this is best captured in the first stanza. “The pine trees towered over me, like a human to an ant.” I had to include this because even after all the years I can still remember how small I felt, yet I was in awe of the tree’s size. I then once again slightly exaggerated by saying, “I cut through brush with a machete avoiding any carnivorous plant.” I included the carnivorous plant part because while I was thinking about the trip, I remembered how much of an adventure it felt like.

Life is like a mountain range with its many ups and downs. Each person has their own trek amongst the mountains, and some of these treks are more difficult than others. When faced with these difficult treks amongst the mountains, many people do as Dale Carnegie once stated; “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” In the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller, the characters Abigail Williams and Elizabeth Proctor each find themselves facing their own mountain, and it is from these uphill tests that each character becomes transformed. One of the characters in The Crucible is Abigail Williams. Being a young orphan girl in the late 1600’s meant that Abigail grew up without having any attention.

Although she was terrified of walking through the woods alone, Ivy ended up exactly where she needed to be. This wasn’t just a coincidence. Ivy’s “inner self” displayed the proper path and lead her to the outside world. It’s also important to note that she did indeed lose a great deal of her fear and innocence in the woods. An example of this was during a short scene of her breaking her cane in half.

1a. How does the setting relate to the events of the story? The forest on a stormy night had a dispute of land that lasted a long time. None of this would have happened if it wasn’t about the land. The tree wouldn’t have fallen on Ulrich and Georg and trap them leaving an open ending about wolves.

The suburbs were rolling over the former hayfields and forests of northeast Portland. Pockets of wild forest still remained to be explored and the construction sites with half-finished homes provided endless opportunity for curious minds. We slipped like a pair of miniature ghosts in and out of locked gates and fences designed to stop adults and were seldom slowed down by anything. We got a rude surprise one day while traversing a familiar landscape subtly changed by a recent heavy rain. The firm brown earth of the previous day was still brown but not so firm.
I wanted to ask my captures where we were heading or what in fact was this giant piece of rock was, but it was too risky. For now I will just enjoy being able to at least see something else other than pitch black space. Sitting back in my seat, I imagined what it would be like wondering around this area; standing at the base of the oak wood, looking up to see millions of leaves sprouting off of skeletal arms and fingers. Next would be the tarmac which made the road, seeming like it would take years to cross to the other side. I don 't think I could reach the rocky object all the way in the sky, but I could admire it from afar, staring up in all my
There is seasonal imagery because in the winter when everything is dark and dreary so is Melinda and when spring comes around things a revived and renewed like Melinda. Melinda endures the harder journey because of the event that happened that summer and losing her friends.
