The nimbled bird, breaking away upon the uttered word , flew high into the treetop on the spot (350-353, p.109)” This is another irony because there was no way Chanticleer could escape from the fox, but Chanticleer tricked fox by flattering him like what the fox did it to him. Chaucer use of irony and paradox to illustrate the weakness of humanity. In the Pardoner’s tale, the Pardoner tells a story about the three drunk rioters trying to kill this killer called “Death”. In their way to the Death, the three rioters met a poor, old man who cannot die. They accused the poor, old man to be the spy of Death and demanded Death’s location.

The Trickster tales “Master Cat” and “Coyote Steals Fire” has many similarities and differences between them. Between the two trickster tales of “Master Cat” and Coyote Steals Fire” they share many similarities. The first similarities between the stories is anthropomorphism which is when you give animals human characteristics they have this because they both can talk and plan.
Tricksters are considered wicked but in fact they can be kind hearted and they strive to help people in their time of need. In “How the Coyote Stole Fire” the Coyote undertakes the quest to help people survive the winter. In the trickster tale the coyote uses trickery to deceive the fire deities in order to steal the fire from them. In the text it says “man saw winter moving near, and he became fearful and unhappy. He was afraid for his children, and for the grandfathers and grandmothers who carried in their heads the sacred tales of the tribe.
. So may you all” (Gardner 12). Grendel whisper’s the quote and is overcome with joy because he never knew that the animals were so calm and that they wouldn’t attack him for unexplainable reasons and he is terrified because he remembers all the times that he was attacked or spooked off by the animals. Finally, Grendel is done with life he get’s to the cliff and sits there thinking about what’s going to happen in his life flashes before his eyes and he thinks of how Beowulf got him and claims it was an accident because she slipped on blood, so he runs out of the hall. “Grendel stumbles out of the hall and into the darkness of the night…...Grendel calls for his mother one last time” (Gardner 12).

To Kill a Mockingbird Essay “When the Fox hears the Rabbit scream he comes a-runnin', but not to help,” vividly allegorized Thomas Harris. The callous guards of Enfield Prison Farm heard a defenseless rabbit fleeing for its life, and, like the supremacist savages that they were, saw an opportunity. They did not kill the rabbit because it was reasonable or because it was their duty. They did not even haphazardly harm it in the heat of the moment. The fox saw a crippled negro man deploying his last strengths, and it preyed on him, mutilating him with each of their seventeen barraging bullets.
“We’ll have trouble keepin’ him from getting right in the box with them pups’.” This quote is symbolic because George and Slim were discussing how much the puppy means to Lennie and how Lennie is infatuated with the puppy and in chapter five Lennie’s strength is evident as he accidently kills the puppy. The death of the mice foreshadowed the death of the puppy. “He made like he’s gonna bite me…an’ I made like I was gonna smack him…an’…an’ I done it. An’ then he was dead.” When Lennie kills the puppy he destroys his window of escape from the bunk house which could take a toll on his childlike need to get out and play. A gentle, little smack from Lennie toward the puppy was enough to kill the puppy.
