“And will there be rabbits, George?” “Yeah, Lennie. There'll be rabbits.” There is a certain curse attached to the most familiar lines in literature. Because we know them so well, we tend to smile when we encounter them, and they can break the reality of the story they're trying to tell. What stage Hamlet has not despaired of getting through “To be, or not to be?” in one piece? In John Steinbeck's novel “Of Mice and Men,” made into an enduringly popular movie, the lines about the rabbits have became emblems for the whole relationship between George and Lennie -- the quiet-spoken farm laborer and the sweet, retarded cousin he has taken under his arm.

The golden retriever focuses on what is happening at that point in time and the happiness that he gains from it. This is represented by the statement “a squirrel who’s-oh joy-actually scared”.
Not a Box by Antoinette Portis is a children’s book narrating from the viewpoint of the protagonist, a rabbit, who throughout the story indignantly attempts to convince the audience that the cardboard box he possesses is something more, something remarkable. Objectively, the work raises the question not only to children but to all people, of how the boxes that surround our imagination seem to become sturdier as people progress in age while simultaneously querying: how does creativity and perseverance affect a person’s view of daily mundane situations? In whole, Portis approaches the subject of creativity in a simplistic manner—the rabbit is left unnamed, the pages only vary in solid colors, and the depictions generally consist of rudimentary lines and curves—yet while her approach is unadorned with lengthy narrative, it still simultaneously manages to convey a raw message, through comical pictures, for an audience that is not limited in age. Such as when the rabbit is asked, “Why are you sitting on a box?” by a character that the reader
Torvald perpetuates aids to Nora’s doll-like personality, by calling her pet-names: “Come, come, my little skylark must not droop her wings” (Ibsen 5). Nora follows Torvald around in a submissive manner. Calling her “little skylark” and “little squirrel,” Torvald degrades her as both a woman and a human. The word “little” is also frequently used before the pet names to illustrate how Torvald does not see Nora as equal; rather, Nora is his property or possession, similarly to how a child looks after his or hers doll. Not only does Torvald call her pet names, but he also controls what she eats.
