That also made her become more vulnerable to the real dangers and the evilness that exists in the world. That danger was represented by an old man who pretends to be an eighteen year old boy that seduced and kidnaped Connie. The end of the story Joyce Carol Oates leaves it open to the readers, because that way it makes the reader think of what might have happened, whether she got raped or whether she is killed, after the main character leaves with the antagonist of the story.

One quote that supports my thesis is “God you’re a lot of trouble” said George “I could get along so easily and nice if I didn’t have you on my tail and maybe even have a girl.” The reason George blows up on Lennie like this is because George could have his life be so much more easier and they have just got chase out of their hometown because of Lennie grabbing onto a girl’s dress because it was so soft and because of his mental illness he holds on and keeps holding tighter. Another quote that shows why George is just in killing Lennie because of him being a liability is "You gonna give me that mouse or do I have to sock you?" This quote shows how George has to baby him and take away things from Lennie because he doesn’t know any better due to his mental illness. As you can see George is completely justified in killing Lennie because he is a
“It is a sin to write this,” begins Anthem, and the digression of the society around him slowly falls. The argument asks if I reason about the Equality’s sins being evil or marvelous. The outtake of his decision decides his fate on the community around him, lifeless slaves being controlled by the government. So, I believe his sins are for the greater good. It shows that he is not a enslaved monkey in a science lab, but the arrogant monkey who refuses to do the tests.
However his disability is only a façade, and soon he breaks out of his shell thanks to a new member of the mental institute McMurphy. Chief did so to protect himself, in Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Johanna Manson is a victor from District 7 and to protect herself, she acted weak before her games making everyone believe she was not a threat. Chief Bromden believed himself a weak individual compared to everyone else in the story, but soon develops into someone who believes in himself; while Johanna knew she was strong but hid it to survive longer. Chief is known for his tall stature and his intimidating features, however even though he looks like he could be a warrior, Chief acts more like a frightened kitten. When he sees Nurse Ratchet at the beginning of the book, “I hide in the mop closet and listen, my heart beating in the dark, and I try to keep from getting scared, try to get my thoughts off someplace else”
This portrays emotional abuse that explores the possibilities of a toxic father-son dynamic. The line “But I hung on like death” then continues to imply that the father’s careless attitude is hurting the little boy internally. These images give insightful pictures to an unhealthy relationship caused by psychological violence. The speaker then adds a more positive image of dancing with, “Such waltzing was not easy” and “We romped until the pans slid from the kitchen shelf,”. Although most associate Waltzing as an enjoyable dance, it is in reality a metaphor that represents the relationship he has with his father.
As they expected, all of their wishes came true. The Tell-Tale Heart on the other hand, is about how the narrator tries to convince his readers that he’s not a psychopath, while planning to murder an elderly man due to his unnatural looking eye. In, “The Monkey’s paw” the paw can grant three wishes.

“But the monkeys grew daring, tightening the circle around Finn”(Ridley). Monkeys, particularly in this situation, slows down Finn from going to save Jez from being trapped.

In W.W Jacob’s short story “The Monkey’s Paw,” there are many instances of foreshadowing in order to keep readers engaged and on the edge of their seats. In part one of “The Monkey’ Paw’” the White family is introduced to the monkey’s paw by, family, friend Sergeant Major Morris. Major Morris explains the dire outcome of using the paw. Mrs. White asks if anyone has used the paw before and Major Morris responds with “The first man used his wishes, yes,”...”I don 't know what his first two wishes were, but the third was for death. Thats how I got the paw.” (Jacobs 34-35) This shows that if the family decides to use the paw then then there may be dreadful consequences.
Hearing another person’s music describe the exact emotions of so many people in this world is remarkable. Thinking that there is no way someone could have actually put these thoughts and emotions into words, and knowing that another person feels the same way is a sentiment of unimaginable relief. Different people connect deeply with various thoughts, words, and harmonies, and hearing a song that achieves all of those qualities is a rare occurrence. The purpose of creating music is not to make money or become famous. The purpose of music is to express oneself and let the world experience any angst or struggles together and to help people in need of hearing another person’s voice saying that no one is alone.
Well my thesis is that when Robert frost says nothing gold can stay he means that childhood views are going to disappear with hate and the never stopping search for money and power. And I think this because children see magic in everything but adults have a hard time doing so and this heavily ties in with the stories main plot and characters. Now later on in this writing I will be giving great documentation of pony two bit Johnny dally darry and soda tying into this idea of mine. And I think a lot of people agree with me on my idea of how this ties in with childhood. Now i think this ties in with real life well because when some people are really old and they don 't really see a magic in the world at all in anything anymore there gold is
