One day, an ugly toad saw Thumbelina and decided that Thumbelina must marry her son, who was also an ugly toad. Thumbelina did not want to marry the toad because he was ugly and she did not know him.

At the start of “Bullfrog” the speaker is reflecting youth and this is symbolised through Hughes’ anthropomorphic application to the strength of the frog’s legs “To thump upon double-bass strings” (Muldoon, 1997, p42), frogs don’t play the double bass so this metaphor alludes to the strength of youth. “This sort of comparison is properly called anthropomorphism, where human attributes are ascribed to something inhuman” (Brown, R D, Reputations (2014), p 44).

Priestley first describes Sheila as naïve and she seems very 'playful' and he says she is being possessed as she talks to Gerald. Although she is 'half serious, half playful' Priestley makes her seem more clever as she has suspicions about Gerald when she mentions 'last summer, when you never came near me'. This only becomes noticable to us when Gerald reveals that he had an affair with Eva Smith. Sheila makes an effort in act 1 to get her parents to approve of Gerald. When she receives the ring from Gerald, she is immediately 'excited', and Priestley shows this in her speech with the use of dashes as she asks 'Mummy - isn't it a beauty?'.
College Writing Essay #3: A Thesis Support Essay A Hidden Danger in Paradise: Mercury pollution in the Adirondacks "One third of the nation's lake waters and one-quarter of its riverways are contaminated with mercury and other pollutants that could cause health problems for children and pregnant women who eat too much fish..." -USA Today, 2004 Somewhere in the distance, as the morning sun begins to rise, a loon cries out as the fog slowly lifts over Lower Saranac Lake. The Adirondacks are beginning to wake up, showing off a beauty which is all her own. However, regardless of her natural beauty, there lies hidden below her waters and deep in the earth a danger which threatens this paradise that is the Adirondack State Park. Dangerous levels of mercury are being detected in the lands and waters within the Adirondacks, and mercury poisoning is quickly becoming a serious health and safety concern for both humans and wildlife.

In the book the mouse is thrown back, but in the movie the topic is brought up when George and Lennie have to stay overnight at the Lake. In the end of the book Lennie is hallucinating about his stepmother aunt Clara and a big giant rabid.

Sentence three is written over three lines, with the first two of those lines demarcated by a comma. Thereafter, run-on lines are progressively used towards the end of the poem. This creates an increasingly meandering cadence, and particularly contrasts to the parallel phrasing of the opening three lines: “The women’s bodies … / The men … / The seawater …” (lines 1-3). In contrast, Frost uses a concise form of four iambic trimeter quatrains. The occasional, but very deliberate, use of two unstressed syllables within some lines quicken the pace, emphasizing the message to the reader.
