This is terrible and I don't know what to do! Should I leave the dwarves and find my own way out of the horrible and dangerous forest that has trees that are giants, or should I save the awful, smelly Dwarves? Why do I always have to save them or do things for them? They are unpleasant to me; they came, unannounced, to my house unexpected and ordered me around to serve them my food and my drinks, in my own house! On the other hand, Dori was the only one who tried to save me and stayed with me, until I was safe away from those Wargs, and he nearly got killed by the Wargs saving me.
We decided to perform the wizard of Oz as it has a theme running throughout with the main sequence being set in a dream/fantasy and the main characters being very non-naturalistic e.g. the main 3 characters are a Lion, Tin man and a scarecrow and they are being hunted by a wicked witch who has a green face and are not characters you would likely come across. This links to kneehigh as the characters that they portray are often fairy-tale/stock characters e.g. bad witch in Hansel and Gretel. Although this musical rarely breaks the fourth wall we will incorporate this into our version to add more non naturalistic features and make our performance unique.
Shrek fell in love with Fiona and this had significant influence over him. Lord Farquaad, A very short and mean-spirited prince who is the leader of the land of DuLoc. Lord Farquaad and the fairy tale creatures had a significant impact on Shrek. The fairy tale creatures fled Lord Farquaad and ended up at Shrek’s swamp. Shrek would have never met Donkey and he would have never met Fiona if it were not for Lord Farquaad.
Each one of those things can be good but also bad at the same time. Science Fictions books are most commonly known for imagining things happening that would most likely never happen. The existence of technology such as an automatic house that does all chores and jobs
When Bilbo successfully returns with a golden mug, the Dwarves are overjoyed and they enter the mountain immediately, which wakes up Smaug. Smaug then crashes through Erebor and goes to attack the men of Dale, a lake-town below the mountain. Then all of a sudden a war breaks out over who is the true owner of the pale enchanted gold. If you are someone who enjoys fantasy adventures such as The Lord of the Rings, then The Hobbit is the book for you. It brings you into the world of Middle-Earth with immense detail.
He was a thief, slander and he would abuse the gods by “putting then in jeopardy, and he was able to save then because he was very cunning” (Willis 195). When they look at Loki, they could not tell if he was a god or a giant. At one point, he was the friend of Thor and Odin and at the same time he would give birth to the monster that could killed them. The one thing about him he was a creator of figure and he gave birth to the World Serpent and Hel the ruler of the dead. (Willis 195) In North America the tricksters were also as cunning, they were able to steal the fire, able to outwit the monsters and play tricks on others.
The dichotomies are used throughout the story, but the one that sticks out the most is good to evil. In the first of Beowulf’s three battles, he fights Grendel, an "Till the monster stirred, that demon, that fiend/Grendel who haunted the moors, the wild /Marshes, and made his home in a hell.”[Lines 101-108] Grendel attacked the people
Throughout chapter 5 the writer uses lots of colours in describing the town such as the red/black brick and the ‘river that ran purple’ all the colours used in the chapter are dark and mysterious colours which adds to the facts that Coke Town is a scary, dark and unloved place. One of the main characters is Thomas Gradgrind. Gradgrind is the local mp and runs the school in Coke Town. He bases his life purely on ‘facts’ ‘now what I want is facts’ this almost makes Gradgrind quite robotic and lacking emotion as robots are associated with facts and figures it also shows us that his life is based on his facts and figures not on emotions and specifically NOT on ‘fancy’, fancy means imagination so when he says he has no room for fancy he is showing he is a very shallow character emotionally as he is getting back at the fact he runs off facts which means he has no room
He was of a different color and appearance than Prospero was used to. Because of this, he was called things like fish and monster, which is similar to how the Native Americans were called Indians. Prospero’s books can represent knowledge, power, and disease. Caliban fears Prospero because he has the books, which give him his magical abilities. “Remember first to possess his books, for without them he’s but a sot, as I am, nor hath not one spirit to command” (Shakespeare 105).
Can any person really sell their soul for magical powers or such power so that they can control the minds of others and rule the earth? In everyday life when tend to overlook these imaginable wonders and Eisenheim the Illusionist can really bring back out the mystery as we read it and frequently ask the question do these events or did they really occur, because the book is not meant for the young minds of children even though they have wild imaginations; the story is meant for older minds to read and to bring out our imaginations about the mysterious wonders of magicians. As I read this story I frequently asked myself did events like people really disappearing and selling your soul to the devil really happened or is happening now, or is this just another plot to deceive our minds just like the magicians really did in there magic tricks. Also in the story it says before Eisenheim became heavily enriched with this magic industry he came across a man in a black suit who changed his life, and I believe that man he came across was the devil, so maybe that was when he sold his
