    A Fairy Tale A fairy tale. Ruby Red, a tale of deceit By Robyn Smith The winter in Argroutsmere had always set on early. It was October, all hallows eve and winter was already here, infact one of the coldest that this small quaint kingdom had ever seen. The trees turned to glass, their branches heavy in a frozen ache, layer upon layer of feather light crystals had gracefully drifted and floated from the heavens, to make this land as pure and white as above. The bear tracks below filling in slowly, the owner long passed. A blanket of fleece covered the earth, a barrier between warmth below and harsh cold above. The lake was of crystal, jewels hidden in the bushes, Sharp daggers of ice, hung f ...

He handed over the bag, they had all been given instructions from 'The leader' ('O Great Master of Evil, Satan, King of Darkness, Beelzebub, Lucifer the Dragon, Slayer of Heaven, Serpent of Eden, Devil of hell', or what ever every one was calling him today). The baby was to be brought up in the forest; she should stay hidden from all. She was to have no contact with witches, humans, good fairies or elves; above all she was to be brought up evil or at least tainted, and be included in their satanic worship. She was also never to learn about her fate, and no one was to be told her whereabouts, as this could clearly ...

The relationship that is described between Magwitch and Compeyson is a repetition of the relationship between Pip and Miss Havisham. Miss Havisham took Pip in and made him think she had good intentions. All she really wanted was to see him get hurt, to pay the debt that she felt her ex lover owed her. She told him to love her, love her, love her (240) because she knew the end result would be pain. Miss Havisham ended up making Pip's life miserable.

  • Alice And The Wonderland - 1,577 words
    Alice And The Wonderland To millions around the world, Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland is merely a childhood dreamland filled with riddles, fairy tails, and games without rules. However, to the trained eye, Alices world translates into much more than a childs bedtime story. There are many undeniable patterns and connections seen throughout his story that are simply too radical to be mere coincidence. The story of Alice is both a mixture of contradictory patterns and a metaphor for growth. With the right train-of-thought and a little imagination, this otherwise straightforward fairy tale becomes a key to Carrolls inner thoughts. Psychoanalysts have analyzed Alice in Wonderland since the ea ...

  • Alice In Wonderland - 1,801 words
    Alice In Wonderland Finding the Child in Us All Lewis Carroll's classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has entertained not only children but adults for over one hundred years. The tale has become a treasure of philosophers, literary critics, psychoanalysts, and linguists. It also has attracted Carroll's fellow mathematicians and logicians. There appears to be something in Alice for everyone, and there are almost as many explanations of the work as there are commentators. It may be perhaps Carroll's fantastical style of writing that entertains the reader, rather than teaching them a lesson as was customary in his time. Heavy literary symbolism is difficult to trace through his works because ...

    Alice's Adventures In Wonderland An analysis of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland The following text is a small part of a project from: Jerry Maatta, HII, Katedralskolan, Uppsala, Sweden Written in March 1997 Interpretations and opinions It is important to bear in mind that Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, however special it may seem and however many different interpretations one thinks one can find, is, after all, but a story written to entertain Charles Dodgson's favourite child-friends. It is very obvious in the story that it was written for the three Liddell girls, of whom Alice was the closest to Dodgson. In the introductory poem to the tale, there are clear indications to the three, th ...

  • Analysis Of Childrens Fairy Tales - 2,087 words
    Analysis of Children's Fairy Tales Week 1-Fairy Tales I was fascinated by reading fairy tales, especially the ones by the Brothers Grimm. By analyzing them according to the protagonists, settings , themes, and occurrences I have noticed many similarities in the fairy tales. I found the protagonists of all the stories to be mystical and mysterious. Many of the protagonists tended to be characters such as Kings and Queens and other authority figures. Perhaps this was so the children could look up to them. Second of all I noticed that there was always something unique about the protagonists that made them different from people in the ordinary world. I read a variety of protagonists such as hunt ...

  • As Bees In Honey Drown - 1,299 words
    As Bees In Honey Drown On October 16, I went to see As Bees in Honey Drown presented by the Fortune company at Theater in the park, located in Flushing meadows park. The timing of the show was 6:00 p.m., but I got to the theater by 6:10 due to the unexpected traffic for the Mets game on the same night. When I got to the theater, people were still getting tickets for the show. I rushed into the theater to get a good seat (the show had general admission). Most of the audience were in their fifties and up. There were a few in their 20s who were friends of the actors. There were about 100 seats in the theater; about 60 were occupied. I chose to see a play in a small theater because I felt that I ...

Like Adam Does the miraculous birth of Jesus make him a God or a "begotten" son of God? No! says the Holy Quran: "The similitude of Jesus before Allah (God) is that of Adam; He created him from dust then said to him: 'Be', and he was." (3:59) Yusuf Ali, comments in his notes in the Quran translation: "After a description of the high position which Jesus occupies as a prophet in the preceding verses we have a repudiation of the dogma that he was God, or the son of God, or any thing more than man.

  • Citizen Kane - 1,168 words
    Citizen Kane The classic masterpiece, Citizen Kane (1941), is probably the world's most famous and highly rated film, with its many remarkable scenes, cinematic and narrative techniques and innovations. The director, star, and producer were all the same individual - Orson Welles (in his film debut at age 25), who collaborated with Herman J. Mankiewicz on the script and with Gregg Toland as cinematographer. Within the maze of its own aesthetic, Citizen Kane develops two interesting themes. The first concerns the debasement of the private personality of the public figure, and the second deals with the crushing weight of materialism. Taken together, these two themes comprise the bitter irony of ...

  • Clockwork Orange - 681 words
    Clockwork Orange A Clockwork Orange is one of the most controversial movies ever made. The movie is based around a thug named Alex, a teenager, who finds happiness in about any perverse action. Alex, who seems to find glory in rape, lust, and murder, tells the story from his point of view. The movie examines the usual cliches of "individual freedom". It seems as if Alex suffers from an attempt to exercise his own vitality within a social structure too severe to support it. The film is not only a social satire but also a "fairy tale of retribution" and a "psychological myth",(Kagan) all constructed around the truth of human nature. Each night Alex and his companions commit stylized but meanin ...
