By consistently mentioning Gemma’s accounts of sharing her fairy tale story of Briar Rose and the intentional attention to detail, Yolen highlights the strong intimacy associated with traditional storytelling and its power to create powerful connections. As Gemma began telling her story in the beginning of the novel, “the sisters nodded and stepped back a pace each, as if the story demanded their grandmother’s face, not just her scent” (Yolen 21). The way Gemma tells her stories to her granddaughters implies that there is a very traditional, intimate story time setting. In this way, storytelling allows not only for emotional intimacy, but physical intimacy as well. The story “demanded their grandmother’s face” implies that Gemma is looking each girl in the eye and trying to speak to each and every one’s soul (Yolen 22).
Poe expresses clearly that Montresor not only wanted Fortunato to suffer but to know why he was suffering in every step of the process. Although this is to lure his victim to his untimely fate, Fortunato goes to his death with much ignorance and thereby joy. Poe’s writing for Fortunato is far more grave than that of the old man. One doesn’t appreciate the death as much because of how deadly of a game he is playing into. From a readers perspective, Fortunato walking down to the cellar is like watching a lamb walk into a wolf den; wholly unsuspecting of their outright fate both are set to be slaughtered from their very arrival.

What does a feminist reading reveal about Dahl’s intentions in “The Three Little Pigs”? Although feminist theory has been in existence for many years, its exact definition is still debated. However, it is generally agreed that it attempts to discourage existing stereotypes concerning women and deconstructs ideas that they are inferior to men, as well as disproving outdated assumptions to do with gender roles. When this theory is applied to Roald Dahl’s ‘The Three Little Pigs’, the reader can see a different type of woman, who is strong, heroic and independent, in the character or Little Red Riding Hood. Dahl has deliberately merged both of these classic fairy tales together to make a new, modern version, which does not contain stereotypes and outdated views.

Golding uses the word pig in the beginning of the story to show a peaceful creature who shows the slow descent into savagery with the lack of civilization . In an article written by Hussein Tahiri, he writes about how at the loss of civilization, people can become more wild-like than normal, which can be seen throughout their actions.

Ralph asks Jack why he did not kill the pig, to which Golding writes, “[he] knew very well why [Jack] hadn't; because of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood” (Golding 31).
When the characters are first introduced the narrator speaks of a ramshackle home at the end of the street and. “Inside the house lived a malevolent phantom...When people’s azaleas froze in a cold snap, it was because he had breathed on them. Any stealthy small crimes committed in Maycomb were his work. Once the town was terrorized by a series of morbid nocturnal events: people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated; although the culprit was Crazy Addie, who eventually drowned himself in Barker’s Eddy, people still looked at the Radley Place...” (Lee
Also the monster shows hatred vengeance towards mankind when he burns down the cottage of De Lacey. “A gush of tears somewhat soothed me. But again, when I reflected that they had spurned and deserted me, anger return, a rage of anger; and, unable to injure anything human, I turned my fury towards inanimate objects” (Shelley 99). He is so angry that the family has left the cottage after seeing him that he knows he can’t take his anger out on the family but he can on the cottage itself.
