“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is set in the small drowsy town of Sleepy Hollow. It is rumored that a fallen headless soldier’s ghost haunts the town. A scholar named Ichabod Crane lives there and enjoys reading scary stories. Ichabod longs to win the heart of a wealthy girl named Katrina Van Tassel, but a man named Brom is also interested in her. One night, Ichabod is walking home and the headless horseman chases him.
The Horseman Arrives Tonight... right? What is the real legend of Sleepy Hollow? Is it an undead assassin in search of the skull taken from him in the revolutionary war, or a man trying to scare away the competition for his woman? Both stories convey a sense confrontation between Ichabod and Brom Bones, in which Brom acts like the horseman to scare Ichabod. The biggest controversy, one that completely changes the story, is the fact that in one story the undead horseman is real, and in the other he is just a man.
The maze is constantly changing and the doors to the maze close at night which leaves the grievers (monsters of the maze) to come out and kill whoever got left behind in the maze. Both Moana and The Maze Runner by James Dashner use characterization to show the key trait of a literary hero is bravery. Both of the movies have examples of the main characters being brave and stepping up to a chance of death to save their friends. Moana finale makes it to the where she has to restore the heart, but she comes across the monster Te Ka.

By yelling out, he both infuriates the spiders and let's his friends know that he is near. He also yells out “Attercop”, which is similar to the Old English word attorcoppa, meaning “poison head”. In addition, Bilbo is thrown into a contest of riddles with another astonishingly clever creature. He manages to stump the creature for a long time by saying “A box without hinges, key, or lid, Yet golden treasure inside is hid” (Tolkien 133).
Edgar Allan Poe is a famous author known for his crazy and terrifying stories. Out of all the gothic elements seen in his tales, the insane male narrator is the most indulging and interesting. We can find this insane male narrator in one of his most famous stories, “The Raven.” The fact that the male narrator in the raven is a psycho who talks to birds while taking nepenthe is a little offsetting. Although this does set the mood for the rest of the story. We see the constant screeches of “NEVERMORE” and the theme of a lost lover, yet you still can’t ignore the crazed male who is taking drugs to forget his dead beautiful wife.
“He shouts, ‘Rhinotomy!’ Then he places a steel saw under his nose with the jagged edges facing towards it. His lips, black as his arms, tremble, which makes one think he is smiling. Then his arms move vigorously, with each movement he shouts desperately ‘Rhinotomy!’ As the jagged edges edge themselves into the nose, fresh blood begins seeping out” (Yu Hua 362). Being persecuted during the Revolution, he is unable to assimilate the terrifying memories into his experience which results in a lingering of his traumatic experience, and only through the practice of masochism can he free himself from the nightmare. Freud defined the term ‘traumatic’ as ‘any excitations from outside which are powerful enough to break through the protective shield’
Edgar Allan Poe, one of history’s most terrifying and demented authors, is famous for his multitude of stories perfectly crafted to haunt readers for years after they finish reading the final words. To achieve this, Poe uses many suspense techniques such as imagery, vocabulary, psychological insights and unreliable narrators to heighten the power of his tales and truly chill readers to the bone. His use of these tactics is no more apparent than in his most morbid and haunting tale, “The Masque Of Red The Death”. In this story, Poe uses three main literary devices: Imagery, symbolism and themes. Poe’s use of imagery is something that makes this tale captivate the audience and truly resonate within readers’ minds.
“Calm yourself, Archdevil. It has succeeded.” The fly intoned “But there were complications, the devil power was too strong....” The Lord of flies seemed to laugh. “You bastard, take me there now!” The serpent’s blood red eyes seemed to shine with a malevolent glint. “Have you forgotten, you cannot cross the world barrier. That child is on the other side, along with its mother’s corpse.
For instance, “I killed him,” he said slowly. “I killed that boy.”Bob, the handsome Soc, was lying there in the moonlight, doubled up and still… I looked at Johnny’s hand. He was clutching his switchblade and it was dark to the hilt” (p. 56). He had no choice to do this because when he did all the Socs ran away. To conclude, Johnny is a hero because he saved Ponyboy from Socs who were drowning
In the graveyard scene the ghost tells hamlet that claudius, filled with envy and wrath came into the orchard where king hamlet slept and poured poison into his ear killing him. After he did that he took the throne and married the queen. In the beginning of the play they are celebrating the marriage of gertrude and Claudius.
