Scottish James had arrived in New Zealand in 1843 as a four-year old. James became a wheelwright and engineer,...

    Dandelion Wine Dandelion wine was a story about a twelve-year old boy named, Douglas Spaulding. Douglas was just a typical twelve year old boy, who lived to play, run around and do what any other twelve year old would do. Not a very physically fit person, but it didn't really seem to matter.

He was a happy boy and not many problems, till now, and he had a yo...
  • Old Boy

    Feral Kid, by Libby Hathor n, is an entertaining book about Robbie, a 15 year old boy, who runs away from home, and becomes a street kid. Throughout this book, the theme is generally about how a young boy tried desperately to fit in to a hostile environment. From the very beginning, the author takes care to express the theme of a sense of place through the characters. The main character, Robbie, forms an unlikely partnership with the toughened streetwise guy, Pale, and a bond is made between the...

He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old man looked hungry, so he offered him a Twinkie. He gratefully accepted...

  • Old Man And The Fish
    1,060 words
    Santiago: A Perfect Role Model for Manolin In the novel, "The Old Man and the Sea", Hemingway builds a character that is easily comparative to any great hero or idol in history. This character, named "Santiago" displays the characteristics needed to conquer his battles or at least do all he can to achieve his goals. This is especially important considering the fact that he is looked at as a mentor of sorts by another character, the young boy named Manolin. Manolin has known the old man since the...
  • Old Man And The Sea Change
    784 words
    The Old Man and the Sea- Change "Change in all things is sweet". Aristotle was right when he uttered the words that lived on as this inspirational quote. When the attitudes of people, your surroundings, or yourself, take an unexpected turn, you usually end up finding out subsequently why changes in your life truly happen. Aside from the confusion and pain that primarily goes with it, change is an unintentional yet vital lesson on how to endure what life hands you. In Hemmingway's novel, "The Old...
  • One Used In The Murder
    408 words
    In the story "Twelve Angry Men", Reginald Rose shows how making one's own decisions is one very important aspect in life. He also showed that one's decisions should not be impeded by stereotypes. I believe that the jury reached the right verdict because the witnesses were disprove n along with all of the evidence. The first reason is that the witnesses were proven to be wrong. For example, there was an el train passing by the old man's window at the time of the murder. He couldn't have been able...
  • Love Potion From An Old Man

    Misfortunes make you finally learn. Teenagers tend to want more liberty and want to move out of their parent's house, when they eventually do that they end up hating it because it did not met their expectations. When people are young and immature they make decisions, due to a certain lust or desire, which they latter on regret. Urging too much for something sometimes causes for you to take your distractions off the consequences, because you do not see them. These ignorant people will become unde...
  • Young Boy's Birthday Party
    617 words
    Critical Analysis of "Rites of Passage" Why would any boy in the first grade claim that he has the ability and strength to kill a toddler? "We could easily kill a two-year-old", (22) is what the birthday boy states in Sharon Olds' "Rites of Passage", a poem in which a young boy's birthday party becomes the pruning ground for many of his peers. The boys are overly competitive and compelled to prove their manhood to one another through intimidation by way of physical threats. All the while, the mo...
  • Innocence Of The Boy
    626 words
    Reflection: Twelve Angry Men In Twelve Angry Men, I observed the traits of an undisciplined mind when two of the jurors started to play tic-tac-toe, or some sort of game, while Mr. Davis was speaking about the trial. They were displaying poor thinking because instead of being open-minded about the things Mr. Davis had to say, they completely shut him out and ignored him. By doing that, they portrayed intellectual arrogance. They should have tried to put themselves in his shoes and try to figure ...
  • Old Man
    219 words
    You might consider that Manolin's name means "little hand". There is a theme in epic literature (and, as I have argued elsewhere, this novel is an epic!) of the father passing his skill and knowledge to a son, handing it down, we say in English. Though Manolin is not the blood son of Santiago, he is a symbolic son, and probably sees Santiago as more of a father than his own father. Santiago has a cramp in the boat. He wishes at that point that he had the boy with him. Manolin represents the help...

    The way a child thinks has always interest me. A child goes through cognitive development as they mature and age. Actually being able to see first hand how a child thinks is amazing.
