Circe and the Swine Leonardo D. AEAEA - An astonishing tale is filled with moments of irony and conquest that challenge a hero and test their loyalty. No one knows this better than Odysseus and his men, who have experienced many hardships that would overwhelm the average man. They spot an island after fleeing from their encounter with the giant-like Laestrygonians. Hunger and the lack of hope have overtaken their hearts so they decide to investigate the smoke that came from Circe’s halls. Once Odysseus lands on the island, he sends a scouting group ahead to face imminent peril.
In literature, color sets the stage for emotion. Although often overlooked, the symbolism associated with color represents the other characters or moods of the story. A story by Karen Russell, “Haunting Olivia” tells the tale of two brothers, Timothy and Wallow, looking for the body of their younger sister, Olivia, who met her death at sea. From marina misbehavior to Glow Worm Grotto, their journey is flooded with colors that represent their circumstances. Symbolism with color fills the story, and the author’s particular use of pink goggles, cerulean eyes and blue fish showcases the boys’ feelings towards their sister, as well as aspects of Olivia herself.
One of the main reasons I like using artificial bait (lures) is the amount of water that you can cover. I believe that the more water you can cover the more fish you can catch. Lures are made to attract fish. Lures can be built to make noise, create reflections or just imitate the movements of a bass’s natural prey. There are also different types of lures.
While the blinded Polyphemus is sitting by the wide-open cave entrance, Odysseus ties his men under three sheep. Polyphemus does not notice the men are coming with the sheep out of the cave and lets them go. Only a true leader could listen to their gut and make a plan as quickly as Odysseus did. Back in Ithaca, Odysseus remains a quick thinker. Odysseus must overthrow 108 suitors in order to reclaim his home, but he must not reveal his identity or else the suitors will kill his son and himself.
Arch’s mob came to his house with lots of weapons ready to kill Clem. When Arch asked Lonnie where Clem was hiding Lonnie at first tried to not answer, but he was intimidated my Arch and his mob. Lonnie told Arch that Clem was hiding in the woods. Lonnie was so terrified of Arch he would not even lie to him to save a mans life. When he told Arch where Clem was hiding it showed how cowardly Lonnie really is and how he was no spine.
“I done a real bad thing,” knowing he has done something George would be upset about, Lennie runs away to the place George told him to go if he was in trouble. When George finds him, he knows he has to kill him because he didn’t want anyone else to shoot him or let him live miserably in an asylum. Once he’s gone, so is the dream. The irony is the two men worked so hard yet they never accomplished their dream. Once Lennie is killed, the dream is completely over.
After being trapped with his men inside the cave of Polyphemus, the cyclops, Odysseus uses his metis to devise an escape plan. Odysseus and his men carve out a stake and stab Polyphemus in his only eye while he is passed out from drunkenness. Moments after this task is carried out, Polyphemus prays to Poseidon by bellowing, “Hear me Poseidon...grant that Odysseus...never reaches home. Or if he’s fated to see his people once again...let him come home late and come home a broken man- all shipmates lost…” (Homer 228). Poseidon immediately hears this wish.
For example, Milkman, the main character of the novel possesses a great desire to make a living for himself, discover treasure, and get girls, but his will leads to a great tragedy between him and his girlfriend Hagar, as “He lay there as still as the morning light, and sucked the world's energy up into his own will. And willed her dead. Either she will kill me or she will drop dead” (Morrison 129). Just as Milkman once willed to be with Hagar, his conscience backfires and produces great conflict as Hagar tries to kill him with a knife. Just like someone may create a “will” to pass on their financial assets after their death, Hagar is merely a “will” to Milkman, a temporary asset that he finds no long-term investment in.
Abominable action are executed by Scar, he murdered his own brother and king to seize his position as king; he also tried to murder his nephew Simba, the heir to the throne but failed and told him to run away. As a result, he became the king ruling the kingdom in with a lack of consciousness and ruthlessly s. Scar believed he was entitled to perform as he pleased; his behaviour was no longer the surviving behaviour to seize the position of king. There was a food and water shortage but he responded he would rather prefer death to come along to all of them in order to stay as king, in power of the whole kingdom. His main focus in life was being king and is above every other animal in the hierarchy and he behaved as he was not even concerned about his death but only his legitimate
Cut his throat! Spill his blood!” (Golding 152). Jack does not have the decency to find out what they are killing. All Jack knows is that this is suppose to be a beast and makes his group chant these words when they kill a specimen. After Roger killed Piggy and the conch, Jack gloating, “See?
The symbolism of the Pearl A pearl is a hard, lustrous spherical mass, typically white or bluish-gray, formed within the shell of a pearl oyster or other bivalve mollusk and highly prized as a gem. But everyone always has a different thought of what it symbolizes. In the story the Pearl, it is demonstrated that the pearl symbolizes something different to each person. As, Kino and Juana go fishing one day for oysters. Kino dives down into the water and finds a big oyster.
