It sounded exciting.it didn't sound like a bad thing. Not really” (1) This quote from Coraline tell us that Coraline is a little bit nervous about what she will find in the other flat. I am going to analyze this quote and the fact that without courage the novella would not be the story it is. See the courage in the book keeps it alive if Coraline collapsed with fear and didn't go on she wouldn't of saved her parents and the other mother would of tricked more kids to their doom.
Reading Lupe 's story , I was impressed by how she kept trying even after she was put down so many times. Not everyone can turn rejection into motivation, but Lupe kept going in hopes of making a better future for her family. Unfortunately, even today in this country non-English speakers/people who struggle with English are often seen as uneducated and less than.
Even thus early had the child saved her from Satan’s snare.” This passage further supports the previous evidence, and it suggests that Pearl will continue to save Hester throughout the text. Although some may say that Hester, because she is not very caring, should not be able to keep Pearl, they are mistaken. Because of her crime, Hester is learning many lessons which she can pass on to Pearl. “ ‘this badge hath taught be,it daily teaches me,it is teaching me at this moment,lessons whereof my child may be the wiser and better…”’

The persona uses the metaphor to emphasise the mental abuse she suffered from her father and presents him as the cause of her insanity. In comparison with this, in ‘The Wasp Factory’, Frank’s suffering and descent into isolation are caused by his father.
