The younger boys managed to create a separate peace for themselves by having a Winter Carnival. Although the festivities of the Winter Carnival suggest that the boys have been successful in creating a separate peace, Knowles’ use of war related imagery in describing the setting, prizes, and behavior of the boys at the carnival suggests that the peace is illusory. The author’s use of war related imagery in describing the setting suggests that the peace is illusory. The season of winter is described as dangerous, like the war. Winter has “conquered, overrun and destroyed everything.”(p. 128) Winter represents the war that has taken over the thoughts of everyone and has taken the lives of some.
While using deep focus photography, a cinematographer may have to rely on framing, lighting, or composition to guide an audience in a way that typically would be done by focusing on objects or characters in the foreground of a shot. Many of these techniques are found in the scene which shows young Charles playing in the snow while his mother completes the transaction to have him taken from his home. Throughout the scene, Charles can still clearly be seen through the brightly-lit window, even while the adults are talking in the foreground of the shot. The ability to see Charles at all times emphasizes that although he is not directly involved in the conversation, he is still the topic of interest. This deep-focus aids in the mise-en-scéne of this scene by allowing the cinematographer to strategically include Charles as a focus of the scene without directly involving him in the dialogue.
Imagine you were the judge would you rather want 14 year old Pony boy Curtis to be in a foster care or live with his two brothers Soda pop and Darry ?

When he was with his two brothers they let him do what ever he wanted to do like smoke,drank,run the streets,and even kill people.

This shows how Lennie likes childish things like soft textures and small animals. This quote shows innocence because children are often very innocent, and Lennie acting like one makes him innocent as well.

However, Lennie would not fight
In “Boy at the Window” by Richard Wilbur the author explores the innocent anxieties of childhood. Wilbur explores innocence by using a different point of view in each stanza. By using the word “boy”, rather than a name, the author suggests the experiences the boy undergoes is a universal one. The author presents the new idea of a cold/ dark winter and the innocence of childhood by using connotation to add emphasis to the dramatic feelings the boy and the man of snow feel for each other and the relationship shared amongst them. First and foremost, in stanza 1 we are on the inside looking outward as the man of snow is “standing all alone,” a statement that creates a lonely tone from the very beginning.
To Holden, children are the greatest symbol of purity, a purity that he wants to preserve before they “fall off the cliff” of adulthood. Holden is fixated on the idea of being a savior. This tendency has most likely developed after the death of his younger brother Allie who will be forever fixed in a state of childhood. It is no wonder Holden sees himself as a savior of children, or simply the catcher in the rye, “I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around-nobody big, I mean-except me.
