After the wonderful portrayal of nature, the author introduces the animals. The outcomes and negative impacts of the animals are not included to differ the animals from the humans. Without those factors “rabbits come out of the brush to sit on the sand in the evening.” The rabbits’ actions are harmless as the rabbits are not harming the sand and no adjectives are used to accuse the rabbits. Then “the damp flats are covered with the night tracks of ‘coons”, once again there is no outcome or negative feature described about the racoons. Steinbeck makes it as if the animals were part of the decor of the nature.
Silence swept through the crowd, enough so that you could hear a mouse scamper across the floor. “But… he 's gay,” Rachel remarked snidely. How would she know? Embarrassed, I blushed and hoped nobody noticed. There was no way I was going to let Rachel Balm bask in the light of her detective work if I was at the brunt of it.
He is round because the reader has the ability to understand his personality, his hobby, his motives and, his character traits. He tells of his hobby when talking to Tilly. He says “Oh, no, they’re stuffed and preserved, dozens and dozens of them” “and I have shot or snared everyone myself” (Jewett, 303). His hobby being hunting, stuffing, and preserving birds. His character traits are presented throughout the story, but none of them change as the story goes on, so he is also a flat character.
The Scarecrow’s real world counterpart are the farmers. While Dorothy and the Scarecrow are walking through the forest the yellow brick road was uneven and broken at times. Because the scarecrow had no brains he kept of falling over but, “it never hurt him, however, and Dorothy would pick him up and set him upon his feet again,” (Baum). This compares to the farmers in the real world. While many people thought that they were dumb (or that they had no brains), others believed that they were smart.
He treated equally just like a human being and lives a life similar to a human being. He converses directly with the human characters of the novel. Stuart is as human as the other human characters in the novel. He had a very loving and caring family with human parents and a human brother. Mr. and Mrs. Little would discuss Stuart quietly between themselves for they never recovered from the shock and surprise of having a mouse in the family.
A chance to achieve his dream. Steinbeck uses imagery like this throughout the novel. The novel also states “Slowly, like a terrier who doesn’t want to bring a ball to it’s master...George snapped his fingers sharply, and at the sound Lennie laid the mouse in his hand”(Steinbeck 9). Comparing Lennie to an obedient dog. This not only dehumanizes him but also shows his loyalty.
One side of the landscape is dry and barren and unsuitable for life which is closely connected to what her life would be if she goes with the operation. On the opposite side of them there is a beautiful lush green fertile for wildlife. Since they don't know what to do, Hemingway set them in the middle of both. Hemmingway uses symbolism as a way to further enhance and illustrate possibilities of the outcome story. He is minimalistic not giving many details about what evidently happens.
With this initial interaction the reader as well as Elizabeth can perceive the disapproval that Mr. Darcy originally holds. However, that soon appears to change when Mr. Darcy narrates, “Beautiful expression of her dark eyes/her figure was light and pleasing/he was caught by her easy playfulness. Of this she was perfectly unaware” (pg. 21). The reader can see an attraction flourishing within Mr. Darcy with each encounter the two characters have, while Elizabeth is positively unaware of such feelings.

I think that Dirk will survive because he now lives on a farm and he isn’t in the bad city. I don’t think Gary will survive because he is now left alone.

He is very friendly to Gary when Gary gives him food.
One of the most common pets for people to keep is a hedgehog. The main reason for this is how easy hedgehogs are to care for. All it takes to keep them happy is a clean place to sleep and an adequate supply of fresh water and food. However, this doesn 't mean that they don 't need regular attention from a veterinarian. A sad example of this occurred recently when one rescued hedgehog made the news because it developed a rare disease from not being cared for properly.
