At one point in our life, we have all pondered on leaving our normal everyday routine and escaping to a place with no worries or responsibility. In The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke, Prosper and little brother Bo have similar thoughts but unlike the rest of us, they acted upon those thoughts which lead them to an unexpected ending. In this adventurous story Cornelia Funke shows themes of rebellion, caretaking, and betrayal. In the story, Cornelia Funke does a great job exploiting signs of rebellion by stating “Children are caterpillars and adults are butterflies. No butterfly ever remembers what it felt like being a caterpillar” (Funke 53).
In the story when he was being accused and tried to show everyone he was innocent but no one believed him just like the poem the bird was suffering until at the end when it said “but a plea, that upward to heaven he flings.” On page it said that Tom Robinson escaped from prison but later he got shot. The next character that resembles the poem “The Road Not Taken” would be Atticus because from the poem it is about that there is choices you have to make in life and once you choose something you can't go back, in the story Atticus had a choice to defend Tom Robinson or not. He decided to defend him anyway. After that most people disagree with Atticus’ choice, but in the story he explained to Scout why he chose to defend Tom Robinson, because he believes that everyone should be treated equally. There are characters resembles from different poems and songs, like the poem you’ve got to be carefully taught that resembles Scout because she is learning things as she gets older.
Lastly, he is separated from his nanny and caregiver. Peekay does not understand why everyone is being ripped apart from him.

This chicken was essentially the first living thing that Peekay had

He lists the injustice each animals face such as the horse having her children taken away and hens having their eggs taken. MLK also doesn’t tell his audience about any of his personal experiences unlike Old Major. Old Major says how he has seen the cruel acts of Jones and this helps the audience relate better because they begin to fear the same will happen to them. MLK didn’t include any personal experiences in his speech which would’ve shown that even a great man like MLK faces the injustice known as segregation.
Don Cortez put pilot Camacho in irons for not following orders to stay at sea until his arrival. We spent awhile at Cozumel and attempted to save some Spaniards taken prisoner by the Cacique, but the prisoner did not wish to return to Spain because he had made a life for himself there with his capturers. Later on in our stay there was another man, Jeronimo de Aguilar who was another prisoner by the Cacique who did make himself known and briefly told of his story to New Spain and the death of his traveling partners. The entire situation was very strange to me. This Gonzalo Guerrero had made his home in this place.
From theses words I allowed blood to drip down onto Amir’s face. Amir was never physically harmed during his childhood, as Baba explains when Amir asks for new servants, but his face is stained with the blood of Hassan from the sins he committed against him. The pomegranate tree starts at the bottom of the woodcarving and works its way up the side and arches over all of this. The reason for that is to show how Amir's betrayal was lurking in the background and hanging over their relationship even before Hassan's rape, but not even Amir seemed entirely aware of it or its
He treats his children with respect, and explains to them what they do not understand. The text states, "I never went to school,' he said, 'but I have a feeling that if you tell Miss Caroline we read every night she'll get after me, and I wouldn't want her after me'" (Lee 42). The text later states, "Atticus said to Jem one day, 'I'd rather you go shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you'll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird'" (Lee 119). Atticus's constant guidance helps the children make the right choices throughout the

The Rooster Coop holds back Balram from making his own decisions and succeeding, but as soon as he escapes from the coop, he becomes one of the winners in society. Balram can’t make his own decisions or succeed because he’s trapped in the Rooster Coop. In the chapter “The Fifth Night”, after taking the blame for Madam Pinky’s hit-and-run, Balram explains that his “life had been written away … I was in terror, and yet not once did the thought of running away cross my mind ...” (Adiga, 151) Balram acknowledges that he wasn’t in charge of his life. This is significant because Balram was dependent on his master Ashok’s decisions. There is also proof that he was trapped in the coop: he didn’t even think
He was separated from his people for 40 years Just as Moses’ was, we as Blacks in America been separated by auction blocks to court room stock! Joseph was separated from his people because of jealousy self interest! Today our people are so self interest driven until selling- out is our cultural norm.
