Neil in the play “The Blizzard,” is represented by a strong trait of disorder. Disorder is when the comic hero tends to view the unexpected or the surprise element as an opportunity for a comic act rather than a violation of a norm. Salim and Natasha pops up randomly uninvited to the country house (Ives 2019). Everything is out of order and they have no phones or radio. They are stuck in a blizzard.
When they finally get back to shore Doodle collapse and the narrator knows that he has failed. It begins to storm and they are running through the rain and Doodle begins to fall behind and the narrator says, “The knowledge that Doodle's and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened. I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind
In A Separate Peace, the characters were in the middle of a war and were preparing to go into a war. For example, a character named Leper left the war because he was so emotionally unstable, this could have indicated some sort of PTSD. A character named Gene, or the narrator, went off to the war hoping to forget about all the pain he went through as he had made his friend Finny (Phineas) fall out of a tree causing him to break his leg and not play sports agaon. Also, Gene went through even more emotional pain after his best friend died due to leg surgery. The symptoms of PTSD may have been rougher on these characters as they were only late teenagers and their brains were not yet fully develpopd.
For example, the Iroquois’ creation myth states the man did not want to dig roots from the Great Tree because, “he didn’t like the idea… he knew it was wrong…he gave in… and he was terrified” (34). Whereas, the man (bear) in The way to Rainy Mountain showed aggressiveness. For example, “the bear (brother) came to kill them (the sisters)…it reared against the tree and scored the bark” (55). The men’s roles proved to be far apart in characteristics and behavior within the two creation
This is ironic where that Ralph had given Jack the responsibility of making sure the fire was always there and had boys to watch for any sign of help but since they all fell asleep, they lost the chance of being rescued. 2. “We don’t need the conch any more. We know who ought to say things.” (101-102) We:
They died with joy and grace. All of the laws didn’t apply to them while they were in the air. “Harrison Bergeron went through a lot of harsh collectivism but the main character in Anthem also did. Equality over comes collectivism by escaping from jail into the uncharted forest. “Trees taller than we ever seen before stood over us in a great silence.
The story lines are so different that you would hardly even think about comparing them; however I did come across one similarity. In the stories three people collectively all go through something life changing. At the beginning they both find themselves in an emotional despair. The two men are always trying to kill each other because that is what their grandfathers did. They find themselves stuck under a tree beside each other.
The council talks to one another about how he should be punished and that they should destroy it, so Equality grabs his box and runs to the Uncharted Forest. At the end of chapter seven, Equality says, “We have lied to ourselves. We have not built this box for the good of our brothers. We built it for its own sake.” (Rand, 76).
As he is walking around the camp, he is trying to find his father, but at the same time he is wishing he didn’t, “‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111). This excerpt describes just how badly he wants to leave his father. He loves him dearly, but Elie gets constant reminders of the terrors of the camp. People die constantly and they don’t have to take care of a withered old man such as Elie’s father.
The central idea of "The Interlopers" is developed when Ulrich von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym, two long-time foes, are forced to put aside their bitter feud and cooperate with one another for the sake of survival after a tree had collapsed on them during a storm. According to pages 364 and 365, because of how much pain Ulrich was in, he realized how foolish the quarrel was and that there were better things to do in life than fight over a strip of forest. Furthermore, on page 365, Ulrich von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym become friends. This means that life is precious, too precious to waste it fighting for three generations with your neighbor over forest land.
In Saki’s short story, “Interlopers”, Ulrich von Gradwitz character’s development from having a hatred mind and being cocky to being caring and forgivable, conveys that you need to get to know the person before concluding that the other person is bad. In the beginning, Ulrich illustrates an independent, cocky, and confident character. While Ulrich came upon Georg in the forest, “man to man, with none to witness,”(1) he is illustrating his independence and his bravery. This is significant because he thinks he is stronger and better than him and his party. The two men want to kill each other showing his hatred towards Georg even though this is the first time talking with each other.
In “The Interlopers”, irony is a key element the author Saki uses to convey the theme that when people hold grudges, the outcome of the feud is often tragic. The story tells of two rivaling families who lived in the Carpathian mountains, the Gradwitz and Znaeym families. The families quarrel began over the strip of land in between their properties. Both men claimed the land belonged to him and wanted all of it for himself. In the end there was lawsuit stating the land rightfully belonged to the Gradwitzes.
Saki, the author of The Interlopers, is most effective in creating and developing characters. Each character is round and dynamic, changing greatly as the story progresses. They are described perfectly and the reader have a great insight as to who they are as a person and what they want in their lives. Each character has his own individual set of motivations but both men are motivated to do the same thing but with similar reasons. It was also a longer story than the others meaning that there was more space for the author to develop the characters instead of focusing on the plot.
