Men vs. Women in Southern Appalachia Two movies that have recently intrigued me include The Songcatcher, directed Maggie Greenwald Mansfield, and Deliverance, directed by John Boorman. The Songcatcher describes a woman who goes to the Appalachian Mountains, on a mission, with a recording device to capture Old English Ballads after she has been denied a promotion from her university. Deliverance portrays four city men who decide to go canoeing in the Appalachian Mountains and experience many different events. Both The Songcatcher and Deliverance have striking similarities and differences. Maggie Creenwald Mansfiend chooses a woman to be her main character in The Songcatcher, whereas John Boorman chooses men for the main character(s) in Deliverance.
The story “Into the Gorge” by Ron Rash was my favorite story in the text. The story provided setting that sustained the mood of mystery. It started with narrating the story of Jesse’s aunt and her mysterious death. Then, the story took place in the woods. The description of how Jesse interacted with the land conveyed his relationship to his father.
Have you ever wondered how it feels to be misunderstood or to not understand? In the short stories “Confetti Girl” and “Tortilla Sun” they have the same thoughts and i’m here to explain them. Both of the stories have feelings of being misunderstood and to not understand. To begin, in the Confetti Girl in paragraphs 1-2 it talks about her mom in the past. She remembers what she used to do with her mom after school and now that she's gone everything has changed with her dad now.
Boo Radley taught them, in the sense, that you can’t Judge a book by its cover. At the beginning of the novel, Jem and Scout pictured Boo to be this “...malevolent Phantom (Lee 10).” that went out at night and looked through people’s windows. But after leaving them gifts in the tree and putting a blanket on Scout while she was standing out in the cold, Jem’s and Scout’s Perception of him began to evolve from a monster to a person. And eventually, after Boo saves Jem and Scout from Bob Ewell, and she takes him home, Scout realizes that “... Just standing on the Radley front porch was enough (Lee 374),” for her to see through Boo’s eyes. She finally begins to understand Boo and why he acts the way that he does.
Hart and Alice had ‘taken it for granted’ that they were going to see their mother again, but Michael takes it to heart. He becomes shocked and distressed, leading him to make reckless decisions, taking Hart and Zeke out to sea during dangerously rough weather. Michael felt ‘insecure’ after losing his wife with a fear that she may have been attacked or killed during the war. This reckless decision leads to the death of Zeke and Hart becoming permanently injured from the whirring lugger, causing Hart to retreat into a world of self-pity and shutting off the rest of the world. Hart felt into a ‘subdued kind of dreaminess’ as he indulged himself in reading books, oblivious and lost to the world outside.
Some times we just want to start over again and the song perfectly portrays that. Also it saids “… screams but no one hears a thing” Guy Montag was trying to tell his wife about books but as much as he tried she wouldn 't listen to him like the song. In the story theres a lot of conflict that had happen but like the song saids that after a hurricane theres a rainbow. When all the bad stuff that is happening in his life its like the hurricane and the rainbow can be when he found the hobos that weren 't just hobos. Set fire to the rain by Adele expresses the feelings that Guy Montag could have been feeling.
Nature reflects the way a person feels, but can’t give them any guidance. In the beginning of the book, Hester Prynne is being shamed by the whole town, Hawthorne writes that Hester sees someone she knows walking along the edges of the forest, we later find out that the man she sees is Roger Chillingworth. Hawthorne portrays Chillingworth as evil, because he came from the forest, and in the book, nature is evil. Toward the middle of the book Hester was in the forest and she took her “A” off and also let her hair down, she grew very happy, thus causing the forest to become happy. Hawthorne is illustrating the fact that nature reflects our mood.
That's when Cheswick jams his fingers into the grate at the bottom of the pool and drowns himself. This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different. For my third and final example is how McMurphy organizes the Deep Sea Fishing trip and just needs one more man for the trip.

Jeannette and her brother Brian find a new playing spot in a shack and they accidentally burn it down. I think this book is banned because the children are trapped in the burning shack and the dad does not punish them and he makes sure that no one knows that it is them who set the fire. Also it is not safe for them to be playing with fire, but their father thinks that it is fine. Jeannette’s father, Rex, also taught her how to swim and he taught her by just throwing her into the water and letting her drown. Jeannette was scared and did not understand the concept of this and she started loosing trust in her father.
Hiking the Appalachian Trail Every year, roughly 2,000 people attempt to thru-hike the entire 1,280 miles of the famous Appalachian Trail. Only one in four succeeds. Stretching from Georgia to Maine, the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) winds through snowy mountains and extensive farmland, attracting visitors from across the world to test their mettle. More than just a physical challenge, A.T. vets regularly preach that the trail is a test of mental endurance. When you’re fighting off hordes of bugs in an old shelter or nursing a swollen ankle, you will undoubtedly question why you thought it was a good idea to attempt the hike in the first place.
Usually, reporter will always record tragedy or someone in danger and doesn’t go help, it shows that they didn’t fulfill ethical responsibility. This author illustrates “ Rolf threw down his knapsack and the rest of his equipment and waded into the quagmire, commenting for his assistant 's microphone that it was cold and that one could begin to smell the stench of corpses.” This state that Rolf had fulfill his ethical responsibility because he threw down his equipment, hurriedly ran over to the girl and tried to save her. I believe that others reporter would not of taken actions like he did, instead, they will stand recording the situation. Based on the given statement, I think that Rolf is not an oblivious person, instead, he have altruism. He have showed compassion towards the little girls.
