Janie, Joe, Logan, Tea Cake, “Porch Sitters” and nanny. All play major roles in the effectiveness of the symbols in “Their Eyes Were watching God”. Janie’s hair represents independence and defiance of community standards. In the very beginning of the novel the towns talk of janie’s hair suggest that a woman of her stature has no business wearing her hair down “like she’s some young gal”. Janie walks into town during the middle of the day after returning from a long disappearance wich gets the “porch sitters” Gossiping about the young boy she ran out into the sunset with.
The woman even made her dogs peanut butter and honey sandwiches, and let them sleep inside her bivvy sack. She treats them almost as children, as any other human beings in need of love. Although she’s camping in thirty below weather, the only things she gets from it are positive. She ends her trip with this closing, “On Sunday I had a glimpse outside of the house of mirrors, on Saturday I couldn’t have seen my way out of a paper bag” (281). Nature and her companions had given her happiness, which nothing else seemed to be capable
“I knelt on my side of the seat and craned around to look at the butterfly of dust printed on my jeans,” said the narrator as she got up from the bottom of the truck and into her seat demonstrating that she is very young and childlike (Oates 358). The description the narrator gives as she talks about the Wyoming landscape also leads us to think about how young and naïve she is. She uses descriptions like “dazzling in the heat” and “the wheat was fawn and yellow and parted smoothly by the thin dirt road” (Oates 359). With youth, come inexperience, fantasies, childish decisions, and innocent romanticism. Her vision of life at this point in her life is a quick wedding, devotion, domestic roles, and child rearing.
Kristine Paulus Return Journey “A Worn Path” October 3, 2011 Phoenix continues on her footsteps with her cane on the narrow road ahead of her. She slowly wipes the tears from her aged eyes filled with joy and satisfaction. Then she looks at the medicine and says “oh child grandma is coming home, I’ll soon be there”. She looks up to the sky and say “thank you Lord for guiding my footsteps to get this medicine for my ill grandson”. “Tap tap tap” she repeats constantly as she heads south to her destination to the toy store.
I have chosen to re write part of the fairy tale Rapunzel. In re writing this fairy tale I chose the plot structures flash-back and flash forward to build more suspense to the story and to capture the reader’s attention. Rapunzel sat in the forest while her two darling children were over chasing butterflies in the nearby field. She felt so alone even though she had her children. She began to drift off into a deep sleep, she began dreaming.

He does not because his fear causes a heart attack. This surprise ending of Billy Boy’s life adds interest and makes, the reader keep reading to find out what happens. Saki uses irony in his short story “The storyteller”. The story, set on a train, revolves around a small girl, a smaller girl, a little boy, their aunt, and a bachelor on their way to Templecombe. The bachelor starts telling the kids a story about this girl named Bertha who got to go to the park
The blue singlets also symbolises the working class. “The houses there wear verandahs out of shyness, all day in calendar kitchens, women listen for cars on the road, lost children in the bush, a cry from the mill, a footstep – nothing happens.” This is a clear example of olden day traditions as women being housewives. The poem, Driving Through Sawmill Towns by Les Murray is a good example of perspective or a view of the world from someone else. With the use of symbolism and imagery the author was able to clearly draw a picture of ‘sawmill towns’ in the audience’s mind and his outlook on these places. The second text that I chose is Fly Me to the Moon by TGP as it combines both music and lyrics to draw a view on an event.
Continuing down the path I see many stations: like knife throwing, a little girl walking around lonely, sheets hung up showing the stations that I will be coming up to. Just down the walk into the woods, only with a flash light to find your way. A Gipsy will help you come into her tent as she tells you your fortune and how you'll die later on in the trail. As I stand in the Gypsy tent she says “what? Oh!
