The subject of the main character falling asleep “palms up’ is compared to “a dozing penitent.” This inclusion symbolizes a major part of the main character’s experience. It’s insightful because there is an obvious reference to repenting, something one does to ask for forgiveness. The author also states how the main character “fears and marvel's” the wolf. This is a spiritual reference because people only fear and marvel God, portraying how much power and strength the wolf had on the man.
‘Ck’o’yo magic won’t work if someone is watching us” (Silko, 230). Tayo relates to this image of a half-wolf half-man because he believes society sees his native roots as animalistic. Through this story Tayo discovers the power of Native American mythology and its ability to stand up to evil and sometimes even white culture. While Tayo is learning the culture’s traditional stories he is also healing slowly by becoming more enlightened about himself and understanding more of his cultural background. Tayo is getting closer to completing the ceremony because all of these traditional stories are intertwining together.
The North American Wolf Reintroduction After reading the article “Yellows Stone After Wolves”, we can see that within Yellowstone National Park, wolves, specifically gray wolves, are being reintroduced after nearly being hunted to extinction during the 19th and 20th centuries. Many people are not in favor of this due to fear of losing livestock, threats to humans, and even the destabilization of ecosystems due to wolves being major predators. Another park that wolves were reintroduced into was Isle Royale National Park, in which the wolves thrive, there are no reports of
How Savagery Takes Over George R.R. Martin once said, “There is a savage beast in every man, and when you hand that man a sword or spear and send him forth to war, the beast stirs.” William Golding demonstrates that every person has savagery inside of him in his novel, Lord of the Flies. In this novel, Golding shows us that civilization is lost and savagery begins when the urge to kill takes hold of us. William Golding’s character development of Jack and motif of weapons help develop his point.
He then says that there was a “go-between” between the situation of the wolf when it was actually there and when it was a lie. This go-between was literature. Nabokov returns to this story and says, “the magic of art was in the shadow of the wolf that he deliberately invented” (13). Nabokov is trying to say that imagination creates literature while still being true to the time. Nabokov does this to further show his purpose.
In the adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by Mark Twain, there are many ups and downs in the book that makes it very interesting and inspiring to read. People in the book inspired other characters to do certain things like Mrs. Watson to enslave Jim and Jim runs away. And Pap Finn who abuses his son Huck and has him run away.

He was able to forget the rumors and decide for himself if he was going to judge them for how they are portrayed or how they actually are. Never Cry Wolf has become a controversial topic as people are not willing to accept the fact that we could of misjudged a species. If we can forget how they use to be portrayed and achieve what Mowat has, maybe we too will one day be able to live among these creatures as a community instead of an
Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, a group of boys crash landed on a deserted island with no adults. They must face conflicts with each other, the island, and themselves to survive. In chapter 9, Jack and his tribe had a feast, and invited all the other boys. During the feast, a storm rolled in, and they became animalistic while eating, chanting, and dancing around the fire.
Cole, the merciless boy who never desired change, until now. During his pathway towards change, Cole found himself receiving a deathlike experience from a spirit bear, staying at Rosey’s hotel after he was vigorously mauled, and getting resent to the island. Once you dig further into this book’s roots, change definitely occurs to Cole, and it’s majestic. To begin with, Cole’s deathlike experience was a major key to completely alter his emotions. Particularly, when he laid down on the ground due to his injuries.
Throughout life, we all go through rough moments where we think all is lost. However, we as humans always grow from these experiences and turn into beings with a new awakening and understanding of the world. In a passage from The Crossing by Cormac McCarthy, the narrator describes a striking ordeal, in which a man is coping with the death of a she-wolf. Despite the cause of death being left ambiguous, this dramatic experience has a vivid effect on the main character—causing him to change and grow into a new man by the end of the passage. McCarthy uses eloquent and expressive diction to create imagery which gives the reader an understanding of the narrator’s experience, supplemented by spiritual references as well as setting changes, elucidating the deep sadness and wonder felt by the protagonist.
He brought Sly Fox to his home and they played together until it got dark. Sly Fox stayed with the wolf until morning but he was hungry and he missed his family. He looked out and realized how far away from home he was, it would take hours, maybe even days to find his tribe. He began to walk back towards the wolf’s house when the wolf caught on to a scent and began to follow a path, invisible to the eye, but crystal clear to the wolf’s nose. Sly Fox did not know what he was doing or where he was going

Both characters hardened and evolved through the witnessing of many losses, causing their innocence to shatter. Grady loses his innocence during a fight when he “brought his knife up from the floor and sank it into the cuchillero’s heart. From the red boutonniere blossoming on the left pocket of his blue workshirt there spurted a thin fan of bright arterial blood”(116). Parham wakes up from his unrealistic quest to return the wolf or nature back to its original state after he “took aim at the bloodied head and fired” during the fair (78). These are critical moments which allowed them to transition from a boy to a man.
