Other authors and literary works can be borrowed from as well, but many are not as widely known or are well-known now but won’t be for long. Because of these limitations, many authors borrow from children’s literature when writing their stories. Children’s literature is recognizable and long lasting. Nathaniel Hawthorne an example of an author that takes references from Children’s literature. He displays this with his novel, The Scarlett Letter which contains a connection to Hansel and Gretel.
When Castle cut his shoes to go faster but this only hurt him because his classmate Shamika embarrassed him. “Shamika couldn’t get herself together long enough to even speak, so instead she just pointed at my feet” (Reynolds 80). What Shamika did made Castle so frustrated that he skipped school and made him realize it was a waste of money which was already a problem in his family. Another time shoes played a big role was when Castle stole the “Silver Bullets” from the sports store. When Castle first stole the shoes he thought it was the best thing he has done for his track career but he was punished for it.”A close-up of my
When the tone of the novel became gloomy, Steven managed to crack jokes to lift the spirit of the story. Steven uses the method quite often which makes him a likable character. On page 122, when he is having a meeting with his teachers about his slipping grades, he thinks a funny comment about Mr. Watras. He does this, despite the fact that he was about to tell them about Jeffrey's cancer. He thinks: “Hey, Mr. W. - where is all your ‘dude’ and ‘cat’ lingo?

Before the injury, Gene would scream at Finny,but now he feels like he owes Finny his kindness. This passive and emotional Gene is probably the greatest evidence to show that Gene is a dynamic character. Before the injury when Finny would try to explain anything Gene would reply in annoyed tone, “‘Oh, for God sake.’ I slammed close the french book”(57). After the injury however Gene felt like he constantly had a space to fill to make Phineas feel better. Which makes Gene quite an annoyance.
The reader obtains a clear image of the characters which allows for the reader to be more involved in the novel. Of course, the characters are what construct the story into what it is, without the reader knowing what the characters are like then the story would be nothing but merely boring. In The Grifters, Thompson allowed for the actions of the characters to be more touching or shocking. As the reader learns in the beginning Lilly is nothing but malevolent to absolutely everyone including her own son. Therefore, “her nominal heartlessness” that the reader becomes familiar with, allows for the reader to feel compassion for Roy (Thompson 10).
This juxtaposition to Gawain's serious tone can also been seen when he explains his wrong doing to the king arthur and the court (lines 2505-2512). Again he serious tone can be seen in the word choose, “scar,” “damages,” “misdeed,” “dishonesty,” ext, yet the court just laughs at him (lines 2513-2514). They even jest at him ignoring the moral of his tale (lines 2511-2512) and begin where belts like his (lines 2515-2521) Everyone around his forgives hims easily because, as discussed earlier humans will inevitably make mistakes. This vast difference between Gawain’s reactions and his fellow knights and kings reactions to his offence relieve that Gawain is being too hard on

Through Atticus and the trial, Jem loses his innocence by learning about prejudice, bravery, and that the justice system is crippled. Throughout the book, Jem learns about prejudice and not to judge because no one is just like him and people are different. He learns most about this from Atticus. For example, when Scout comes home from school and gets angry because her teacher, Miss Caroline, doesn’t want her to read at home. Atticus responds by telling her that she shouldn’t say anything about Miss Caroline because Scout doesn’t
