She would give away her clothes, her toys, her food, anything. These attributes come along with anyone who is naturally loving and giving towards other people. As can be seen, especially from the sacrifice she chooses to make, Patria is loving and giving towards others. Had she not have been born this way, her family would have most likely been killed, leaving her alone. It also takes bravery to make such a decision, giving yourself up to an oppressive ruler so that your family could live.
(Pg. 215) This demonstrates how she was capable of completing a task just to help others when it was causing her pain. Furthermore, Irene’s wish for many years was to be able to be with her family again. She received news that her father died and her family was in danger because of her. This caused Irene sadness because all she wanted was to help others, but she did not know that her help was bringing danger to her family.
They externalize these fears into the figure of a ‘beast.’” (Doc A) So, without mothers, the boys were forced to handle their fears without any comforting. According to Rosenfield, the boys had to externalize their fear. Externalize is a psychologic term that means to transfer an inside feeling onto something of oneself.
In (document c), the author states, “Lord of the Flies, far from being a mere fiction or fable, is also an authentic history of World War II and its psychological aftermath. War is not the mere occasion of the novel, but rather the off-stage protagonist in this drama of evil, determining the behavior of the marooned island.” Also, in (document d), William Golding said, “There was a speck above the island, a figure dropping swiftly beneath a parachute, a figure that hung with dangling limbs….” William Golding wrote the book as authentic history of World War II because he left his job as a teacher to join the Royal Navy. The twins, Sam and Eric,found a dead parachutist that hung with dangling arms that they mistook for the
She lives her life as if it is her job to protect her cub until the day she dies. To the hoaxers it makes sense that she would conspire to kill child just to show the world she can still act. Ultimately, arguing that the parents conspired to kill their own children is illogical due to lack of credibility of inferences and the strength of a parent of child
One of the recurring symbols is the scar created in the story. The scar is created when the plane that the boys were in crashed onto the island. This was meant to represent man destroying nature simply by entering it. “Beyond falls and cliffs there was a gash visible in the trees; there were the splintered trunks and then the drag, leaving only a fringe of palm between the scar and the sea” (page 29). This passage from the novel describes the remnants of the crash and what could be seen.
When reading a novel, readers do not often realize that many authors use the same types of characters and symbols. Applying a literary lens to a novels can help readers better understand why a novel was written. A literary theory is, “A term for analyzing, classifying, defining, interpreting, and evaluating literature” (Davidson). When observing a piece of literature with an Archetypal lens analysts can identify these patterns. According to Literary Devices, “In literature, an archetype is a typical character, an action, or a situation that seems to represent universal patterns of human nature” (literarydevices).
Nanny is successfully able to convince her granddaughter through her own traumatic experiences and make her feel “sympathy” as she tells Janie she doesn’t want her life to be spoiled like her own life was. At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced. By calling herself a “cracked plate” Nanny further elucidates that she went through many hardships in her own life and wants to do the right thing for her granddaughter by
In “The Nightmare Beast, War and the Children in William Golding’s The Lord of the Flies” by J. Dangar (Doc. C), there is a quote from Golding himself where he says “The war produced a noticeable effect on me. It scared me stiff… I began to see what people were capable of doing.” War played a large part in Golding’s life, and the violence was an inspiration for “The Lord of the Flies”. In chapter 6 (Doc. D), there was a “sign… from the world of grown ups…
The most important way Erik impacts Paul is he causes Paul’s life to become full of constant fear and anxiety. This is proven by Bloor when his character Paul states, “I have always been afraid of Erik” (42). Paul has been afraid of Erik his entire life, as Bloor indicates by this quote. The quote also gives the reason why Paul tries to avoid Erik, and sets up the
(MIP-1) Najmah’s trigger avoidance, a vital symptom of PTSD, stems from her fear of reliving the bombing when her mother and baby brother died, but by running away to save herself, she prevents recovery by isolating herself from those who wish to help her.

The boys turned into monsters because they were so afraid of the news Dave had because he was the one who told the family that their loved one was killed in combat. The boys still were so afraid of what Dave wanted to tell them that they continued to beat him up until, "He closed his mouth and tried to crawl away" (5). Another way to use suspense is to to show how someone is so angry and afraid that they turn into some they are not and get very violent. At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up. While reading the suspense of how badly the boys wanted to beat Dave up was a release of anger and fear, which is terrifying in the position of
