Lucy is the most rebellious out of the three, as even her name – the female version of Lucifer, the fallen angel – suggests. She rejects her mother’s attempt to make her the ideal daughter who is ethical, submissive and decent. She claims that she rather be dead than become the echo of her mother, as the fact that she is identical to her mother scares her. Lucy states: “I did not want to be like my mother…. ‘You can run away, but you cannot escape the fact that I am your mother…’”

She suffers unbelievable tragedy with the death of her only son and husband in a matter of a month, yet she is one of the only static characters because it does not change her. Willie is Lucy’s first love and they both come from humble beginnings in Mason County. She is largely domestic (Jack spends a good portion of the first chapter describing Lucy in a state of “bliss of self-fulfillment” because she served dinner successfully) and makes many sacrifices for Willie’s career- she stays married to him despite his affairs with multiple women (Warren 1.51). Lucy’s main internal conflict is looking for a “something so [she] could live” after Willie and Tom’s death (Warren 10.590).
t Lucy’s Home for Girls is a safe haven for werewolf girls to learn how to change into better humans through a curriculum taught by the home’s nuns. Claudette, a student at St Lucy's Home For Girls, follows the nun’s curriculum closely, but sometimes she strays from it. This short story written by Karen Russell follows three werewolf girls as they learn about and adapt to their new way of living as humans, all of them heading in separate directions. In the beginning of Claudette’s journey, everything is new and different. She shortly learns that hard work is crucial to adapt to her new way of life and that from that point onward the stakes will be high.
The Man, the Bitch, and the Closeted Sexism The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a wonderfully imagined novel that the author, C.S. Lewis, wrote for his goddaughter Lucy. He aspired to incorporate many elements that little girls like Lucy, in particular, would find intriguing, such as the compelling beauty of the wood inside the wardrobe, the magnificence of the characters in it, and the great significance of relationships between family and friends. He even named the young protagonist Lucy. However, by focusing on his intention to enchant her, Lewis also negligently integrates sexist attitudes and stereotypical gender roles into the tale.
Lucy stands in many ways in contrast to Mina’s character as their moral views and ways of life are distant. She has no occupation and is in no way seeking any form of education. Due to this fact she resembles at first initially in no case the modern New Women, as these sought for independence and education. Her personality can be described as girly, lovely and ‘sweetly innocent’, a seeming sample of Victorian perfection. Lucy is highly beheld for her beauty as her appearance is that of a luminous beauty with fair hair, that is described as “sunny ripples” , and pure bright eyes.
Karen Russell's “St. Lucy’s Home For Girls Raised By Wolves” is a story of lycanthropic girls who have been raised by their wolf parents who are being assimilated into human culture by forceful nuns. Claudette is the main character who is also telling the story. She faces many achievements and struggles, but by the end of the story Claudette has clearly conformed to human culture. This is supported when Claudette shows her loss of wolf-like traits, such as when she loses compassion for her pack members, and in the later stages when she starts to have complex human thoughts and starts to lose detectable traces of her wolf origins. Claudette encounters cultural shock and struggles to assimilate, however, she also reaches many milestones on her journey to becoming human.
Macbeth, one of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays, is a tragedy about one man rising to the top to subsequently fall. The Lion King is an animated Disney movie about a lion cub learning about life while on the run following his father’s death. The Lion King and Macbeth compare to certain multitudes, as well as contrast to a certain degree. Similarities and differences between the movie and play are shown between Duncan and Mufasa, Malcolm and Simba, Macbeth and Scar, the three witches and Rafiki, and the theme of appearance versus reality.
The narrator points out that he hated being wrong, but still tries to reach out to his sister. When Lucy does not answer, he unfairly imagines her “sulking somewhere” One his way back, he meets Lucy and he only tells her that he had been looking for her instead of apologizing. He does not genuinely ask for forgiveness. When Lucy tells Edmund that the White Witch is evil and untrustworthy, he disregards her opinion and convinces himself that she is
In William Shakespeare’s Tragedy “Macbeth” and the well-known comedy story of Lion King, the demise of Ducan, comparing to the death of Mufasa, as well as the consequence of conspiracy and revenge conducted in both stories, are similar. In fact, “The Lion King’s storyline is also influenced by William Shakespeare’s Macbeth” (The Lion King). Both stories contain the plot of seizing the throne by a conspirator, the death of the king, the fleeing of origin descendant of the throne, and a victorious revenge at last. Despite having the similar outcome for the conspiracy conducted in both the story of “Macbeth” and “Lion King”, the distinctive perspectives of protagonists, different nature in characters and distinguished motivations for the conspiracies
What do your neighbors, your coworkers, your family all have in common? A powerful evil that lays deep within all humans, only to be released under the most heinous circumstances. This fact is clearly articulated in the works of world renowned authors Shakespeare and William Golding in their novels Macbeth and Lord of the Flies. Shakespeare 's Lady Macbeth and Golding 's Jack share many similar qualities in their path to success proving that if good people who begin with positive intentions become provoked by the lust for power, then ambition can get in the way of their moral compass and capability for making good decisions because of the evil which lays inside all mankind.
Hero’s Journey Essay Literary Analysis of The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien What happens when one day a cloaked figure asks you to join a group of heavily bearded men in search for treasure in a dragon’s lair?

There are many factors that determine how people behave in their daily lives. We are run by a number of rules and regulations that influence the way we behave, talk and live. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding shows that without the influence of a civilized society and law and order, people’s characteristics can change drastically. Similarly in Macbeth, Shakespeare represents the loss of morality of a leader as his hunger for power clouds his judgement. Both pieces of literature present how both writers view the breakdown of morality through the breakdown of civil behaviour.
1940 in America brought us Bugs Bunny in “A Wild Hare,” president Franklin Delano Roosevelt for a third term, the discovery of Stone Age paintings, and And Then There Were None. Over the Atlantic in Victorian England circa 1902, Lord Salisbury retired from being Prime Minister, King Edward VII and Queen Alexandria were coronated, the Olympic Games were held, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published The Hound of the Baskervilles.

They vary in their narrative perspective, style of foreshadowing, tone, and characters. These are all important elements of literature used to enhance the plot.
