The Wood-elves and Lake-men then laid siege to the Mountain and requested payment for their aid, recompense for Lake-town's destruction, and settlement of old claims on the treasure. Thorin refuses and, having summoned his kin from the mountains of the North, reinforces his position. Bilbo tries to ransom the Arkenstone to avoid a war between all of them, but Thorin is stubborn.

Christina Bowers 9/20/09 His 1000-004 Controversial Issues in “The Epic of Gilgamesh” In a short summary, “The Epic of Gilgamesh” is a tale of King Gilgamesh, who meets his match, Enkidu. Born and raised in the wild, Enkidu’s “Tarzan Days” come to an abrupt end when he is set up by humans, and forced into civilization. Gilgamesh and Enkidu become very close companions and overcome many obstacles together, including killing the Bull of Heaven, slaying the demonic guardian of the Cedar Forest, Humbaba, and cutting down the sacred Cedar Tree. Then their time together is cut short because the gods no longer saw Enkidu as worthy of living, due to the three “wrongs” that he committed. Following the death of his beloved friend, Gilgamesh develops a great fear of death.

The first three stanzas focus on the beauty of the Earth with the list of creatures, and the wonders the world holds; ‘Andes, Himalayas, Kilimanjaro’ and ‘Amazon, Ganges, Nile’, whereas the final stanza focuses on the destruction of the world that is upon Atlas’ back. Atlas is about to give himself up for the World after trying all he can to fight against the Gods but now he must be punished. The whole mood of the poem flips and the audience realise that all the wonders mentioned in the previous stanzas are in danger. ‘he bears where Earth is, nowhere, head bowed, a genuflection to the shouldered dead,’ is a line which shows the total metamorphosis and shift in tone from the beginning of the poem. As a reader we are able to see that despite all the passion and power Atlas put in, it wasn’t enough
The most enthralling part of the story is when the enraged Lone Power comes after Nita and Kit on the back of an eight-legged, skull-faced beast. (Duane, 151) They flee for awhile, eventually passing through the worldgate into their homeworld with the Lone Power behind them. To stop this enemy from destroying their Universe, Kit and Nita quickly summon a wall of animated trees and statues and begin to read from the bright Book by moonlight, to undo the wrong that the Lone Power has done. Obviously this is an important scene of the book, even the most important part, for it was the climax. As for diction, Christopher "Kit" K. Rodriguez, one of the protagonists, is picked on for his Spanish accent.
This leads Brown to run through the forest searching for his beloved Faith, landing him in a meeting, where guilt, sin, and evil are worshiped. Goodman Brown then returns to Salem.

Young Goodman Brown bears a strong resemblance to the story of Adam and Eve where curiosity through temptation causes humanity to bear the original sin of the fall of man.
