Richard Adams’ novel, Watership Down, is a story about a group of rabbits and their journey to a new place to call their home. These rabbits are led by Hazel. Although Hazel is not the chief of the warren, he eventually becomes it. Along the way, he proves to be great leader. On their journey, they encounter a rabbit named General Woundwort who is the chief rabbit of the Efrafa warren.
In order to protect both Fiver and Pipkin the other rabbits put themselves in danger of the crow. Hazel was already far up the hill, but once she saw Fiver and Pipkin in danger he was back to them in seconds. He distracted the crow, and Bigwig came charging after it. After the Crow attempted to hit Bigwig and missed, it was Silver’s turn to take one for the team. Silver came from behind Bigwig and stopped, facing directly at the crow.
For example, “Well,” said Rikki-tikki, “marks or no marks, do you think it is right for you to eat fledglings out of a nest?”(para 25) This shows that, Rikki-tikki is truly acting human because he is standing up for others. This proves the theme, don’t be afraid to protect the ones you love because Rikki-tikki cared for Darzee and his family so he stood up for them. Secondly, “If I don’t break his back at the first jump,” said Rikki, “he can still fight; and if he fights—O Rikki!” (para 56) Therefore, this is personification because Rikki-tikki was planning everything out, like humans do. This shows that, Rikki-tikki loves Teddy and his family so he had to plan everything right or Nag would kill them all, he couldn’t let that happen. In conclusion, the use of personification in this story helps demonstrate the theme, don’t be afraid to protect the ones you
What caught my eye, was in the first paragraph when she says, “stalks rabbits, mice, muskrats, and birds, killing more bodies than he can eat warm, and often dragging the carcasses home”. (6) Having a sentence like that means she really did some great observation, since it is very well depicted. Weasels live to survive, they don’t have time to wait and see what their following actions are going to be. “I think it would be well, and proper, and obedient, and pure, to grasp your one necessity and not let it go”, (8) just shows how having a necessity is important, from human to a weasel. According to www.SciElo.com, animals are known to suffer from anxiety when they are stressed out, like when they do not have enough food for their family or have proper shelter.
In Shakespeare 's’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Helena, Hermia, Demetrius and Lysander go through quite a lot of trouble before they emerge from the woods with their problems all but resolved. While Helena, Hermia, and Demetrius all remark that they remember the events of their night in the woods, even if they do think it a dream. Yet, Lysander never implies that he knows what his other three companions are talking about. Robin Goodfellow also implies that the herb he places in Lysander’s eye will cause him to forget everything that happened while he had the juice in his eye. When Robin Goodfellow put the herb that reversed the love juice’s properties in Lysander’s eye, it had the side effect of causing Lysander to forget everything that happened the night before.
The main characters are Little Rabbit and Big Rabbit and other secondary characters. Once, the Little Rabbit Witnessed the Terrible Things. They came to forest because they were searching for any creature that possess feathers. Every other creature was looking at each other to see who had feathers.

Duck was in a terrible fix. He didn’t want to scare the duckling, but he didn’t want to lie to him either. So Mr. Duck whispered exasperated, “ Rory the fox was hiding there so he could eat you and Joe the mouse.” At that moment, it started to rain. Fortunately, Mr.
He describes in his writing that, "…the call rings up the curtain, always, on a mystery of transfiguration—a rite, or moment, of spiritual passage, which, when complete, amounts to a dying and birth." Neo’s first call of adventure was when he had to follow the ‘white rabbit. ' He had seen this in one of his dreams that he needed to follow the white rabbit and when a female who had a white rabbit tattooed on her visited him, he knew that this was certainly his call to start his adventure. Fortunately for Neo, despite the fact that he initially refused to honor the call and thus refuses to climb the window, he chooses to accept the call. Therefore, the second stage just does not apply to
Because of Lennie's mental disability, he is required to be dependent on George. In the beginning of the novel as George and Lennie are making their way to the migrant farm, Lennie has a dead mouse in his pocket. Lennie feels that if he were to tell George concerning the mouse, he would yell at Lennie and be angry with him for his wrong doing. Ultimately, the more times George gets furious or impatient with Lennie, Lennie believes that George will not allow his dream of owning a farm in the future to come true (Owens). Likewise, Lennie's lack of consciousness from determining right from wrong, denounces his self character, leading to his own death.
In the novel, Jem goes rigid when he was trying to prove that he was not scared of the Radley Place. Later on, Scout runs towards Jem even though she is really scared.

He thinks that he might lose and sends another rabbit (Vervain) to fight him. This is the start of the collapse of sandleford. Character quote- woundwort fighting the dog.

“Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, Rudyard Kipling. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is a young mongoose who is taken in by a english family in India. Rikki shows as if he was fighting a war, and that no matter what happens he will keep everybody safe, at whatever cost. Rikki has a whole lot of courage, strength, and selflessness. First, Rikki shows a whole lot of courage when “she plunged into the rat hole where she and Nag used to live, his little white teeth were clenched on her tail and he went down with her” (and every mongoose knows not to follow a snake into their hole, otherwise there’s a huge chance that you won’t be alive for much longer) he knew that a mongoose should never go down into a snake’s hole.
In the novel "Lord of the Flies", the boys attempted to create a working society with hunters, a chief, where everyone could be safe, and more importantly feel safe. This society though didn 't work out; there were too many outlying problems, like Jack wanting desperately to best Ralph, or Roger being a secret sociopath, or the fact that throughout the entire book they were terrified of some beast, which was really just them all along. In "Lord of the Flies" the boys are so blinded by terror and excitement that they don 't take any time to clear their heads, think, and realize that what they have been doing is completely wrong. In the book one character, Simon, realized that the beast that they had been scared of the whole time had really been them, and when he tries to tell the others what he has discovered, they beat him to death with spears before anyone can hear or understand what he was trying so hard to tell them. In the book one of the characters, Ralph, says "Things are breaking up.
These reviews I have seen are mostly positive. One of the reviews says it should be read and loved by everyone. (Jack London’s Naturalism) The review says this because the story shows a odd but lovable hero that in the end if he believes and tries his best in the end he can achieve his goals and live the life he would want to live. Another review says that it is really good but is not for young animal lovers. (Call of the Wild- Book Review) It says this because in the story the hero has to do some bad things like rip out other dogs or even humans jugulars to save himself or some of his new found friends, but in the end the review still says it is a really good book.
