Once Sandy starts school at Rydell, that is when the whole problem begins.

Instead of using the way we classify humans, books are classified by things like theme, symbols, and setting. This is how we are able to compare and contrast the two stories High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game”. In High Noon and “ The Most Dangerous Game”, they have very similar, but, very different ideas on the theme, isolation, and conflict. Out of all of the themes in the film High Noon, this one theme stands out in particular to me. Will Kane, “They’re making me run.

Reaching the end of both stories, both narrators comes to a realization, WB realizing how his passion is worth more than impressing a temporal girl, while Alice realizes that she is subconsciously conforming to her gender stereotype. In the beginning of both stories, WB and Alice both had certain thoughts for their actions. WB thought that having a crush on Sheila was more important than his passion for basses: ‘only creature that seemed lovelier to me than a largemouth bass was Sheila Mant’, while Alice had certain thoughts on how she should morally act. WB would try to win Sheila’s attention by doing endless laps between his house and the Vermont shore, and he was excessively obsessed with her figure, spending his summer observing and looking at her. He thought that she was ’queenly and severe.
The description in this short story illustrates how there is a lot of rain and then vividly paints a picture in the reader's mind about how the children dream, they are full of desire for the sun. Ray make it crystal clear how much the kids need the sun however they can not retrieve it. The sun seems so far, especially with all the rain it is implied that that each child’s hope has been washed away by the rain until we the sun, after all the waiting they get what they needed what they were waiting for and desired. They were desperate held on and made it, this is all confirmed because of the excellent description put into this short
They glanced quietly at the sun.” In this part of the story, Bradbury is showing the reader how Margot’s hopefulness led her into this position, being miserable at the least. All throughout the story, the author is consistently using metaphors to make the sun seem like such a prominent figure, like an above life persona. He uses numerous phrases such as “how like a lemon it [the sun] was, and how hot. This is obvious in the eyes of the reader, but Margot’s classmates, who haven’t fully seen the sun’s glory, are moved by this, but also envious. Bradbury is essentially advertising the sun throughout the text, making it seem like much more than it truly is, and in doing so, the reader is left with a harsh, yet frank truth at the end of the story: yes, hope can be a good feeling to have, but in reality, it can also be a menacing force that can mentally drain someone.
They live in stories. Two stories that are interesting are The Giver by Lois Lowry and "A Sound of Thunder" by Ray Bradbury. Jonas in The Giver gets picked for a special task that requires pain beyond what they all have experienced. Eckels gets to hunt down a T. Rex and ends up facing a task he cannot handle and must deal with the consequences. While some obvious similarities do exist, both authors approach these stories, specifically with the characters, tone and point of view in similar and different ways.
Gatsby says, “You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock” (Fitzgerald 90). The green lantern is a famously remembered object in this novel because it represents Gatsby’s hope for his relationship with Daisy and his determination to pursue the dream of reuniting with Daisy, and subsequently becoming a member of the “old money” class himself. Gatsby eventually becomes overridden with trying to impress Daisy, which makes him look desperate rather than a mysterious man portrayed in beginning of the story. In a writing about color symbolism by Daniel Schneider, he says, “the green light’ at the end of Daisy’s dock – that symbol of ‘orgiastic future’, the limitless promise of the dream Gatsby pursues to it’s inevitable tragic end” (Schneider). This self-explanatory quote backs how the color green also symbolizes Gatsby’s downfall and not just his dream of becoming old money.

My ardour for Literature grew when I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Both novels are similar and revolve around self-discovery. As a reader, it makes me feel like outlaw reading novels about knowledge and reading being a crime. In Huxley 's Brave New World, those who accept the new world lose their humanity. Bradbury shows how the lack of books can give the government too much power.
I think I figured out why you wrote, “pretending to be a literary critic.” And I can’t tell if I’m mad or glad about it. Let me explain: I told myself to take a break from this project and also _City of God_ because that book is an in-your-face kind of text. It’s incredible, but damn overwhelming. I wanted to read a light short story… I’ve gotten to the point where I literally see this unreliable narrator plus humor plus nostalgia plus schizophrenia in just about everything. I chose something by Sherman Alexie.
Then I had an epiphany that if I keep this up I won’t be on the team in my seventh grade year. Mr.Jones lectured me by stating, “If you want to be average then all you have to do is nothing.”. So I interpreted this quote to mean that those who are successful today must have worked hard to become successful. Mr. Jones has a significant influence on me because he taught me life lessons through his own experience. He changed me from being a lazy kid to a kid who has a motivation.
