If a reader of The Kite Runner takes away one thing form the novel if might be the fact that afghan’s as much or maybe more than any other culture are obsessive over how the community and those around them see them. The reader can see this in the class system of the culture or formality of the culture or even the parties they hold. So, in the passage on page 105 Amir uses two particularly interesting metaphors “I wanted to tell them all that I was the snake in the grass, the monster in the lake” (Hosseini). Both metaphors share a similar premise he compares himself to monsters hidden in seemingly unassuming locations. This idea of surface appearance versus the true hidden reality is the Afghan culture seeping into how he thinks and talks about the situation.
In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, the story started with Macbeth being a loyal and brave thane to King Duncan. After the three witches had told him that he was eventually going to become king, he was over taken by ambition and power, which led to the kings’ death and Macbeth taking over the throne.

The actions and words of Lady Macbeth could have led to the encouragement of Macbeth, which made him act upon his feelings, which ultimately led the murders and everything else that had happened around those events. The words of the witches could have also driven him to act upon everything.
The reason I enjoy this story because the dancers thought they can be safe but someone or something ruined their day. The literary devices includes irony, symbolism, and allegory. Edgar Allan Poe shows a many examples of irony. In Masque of the Red Death Prince Prospero decided to take his specific group of people to escape the horrendous red death, but a masked figure came to crash his party. The type of irony is situational because the price did not expect the red death

(Orr 295) Unlike her first shot at becoming an actress, Eve took her second chance and ran away with it. In the e-book Manipulation and Ideologies in the Twentieth Century, written by Peter Schulz, he states, “Trying to define manipulation in the abstract does not get us very far” (15). Trying to understand the reasoning of another person for manipulating you or anyone else for that matter will get you absolutely nowhere. Those who manipulate others may feel no remorse at all, the ones who hurt are the individuals that were played for a fool. Sometimes, being manipulated says a lot more about who we are then the person telling lies.
“[A large number of Shakespeare 's female character neither fit the perfect picture of ladies at the time, so he was not putting models in front of an audience to show ladies how they ought to carry on. Nor do they relate with the misanthrope state of mind towards ladies of the day. Considering the picture and status of ladies in Shakespeare 's general public, his female characters more likely than not been very dubious. ]” It is justifiable, that a few men did not need their wives to see some of Shakespeare 's plays.

This can be seen through his actions toward her before he found out about his father’s death being a murder, pretending to be crazy simply to prove to the king and Polonius, and by his actions after Ophelia 's death. Because of Hamlet’s actions towards Ophelia in the very beginning of the play is one reason how it can be seen the Hamlet truly does love Ophelia.

“Terrifying Traditions”: Reflecting on ‘The Lottery” In Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery” I was able to relate almost immediately. The lottery in surrounding towns had started on June 26th, which happened to be my late aunt’s birthday. My aunt was murdered in 2005 and has had a direct impact on the career choice I dreamed of accomplishing, as a funeral director. Furthermore, I was able to quickly associate this story with an inner passion. Emotion is one of the most important aspects of great literary work.
Maybe he wouldn’t have been killed if he didn’t do this in the first place. It is further ironic that Polonius specifically told Gertrude to be very aggressive towards hamlet, but when she was aggressive, maybe the conversation would have stayed calmer and then Polonius would never have called out for help and Hamlet wouldn’t have known he was there. In other words, Polonius would not have gotten killed. Beyond all of this, Polonius’s death causes a chain reaction that results in many other deaths. Ophelia’s death is a less significant event in the play, but it still touches upon the motif of death.
