They spin their webs on the undersides of leaves of specific plants and usually avoid contact...
  • Way The Animals In Charlotte's Web
    819 words
    In light of the description of anthropomorphism, I think it is only fitting to use the novels Charlotte's Web and Watership Down to demonstrate them. While both of these novels show animals behaving in different manners, they are both uncharacteristic of normal animal behaviour.

    1,048 words
    No Fixed Address In Arith a Van Herk's "No Fixed Address", one key symbol surfaces many times. The main character's name is Arachne, which means spider, and sets the reader up to understand the central symbol in the novel-the spider web. The reader sees several other instances of webs showing up throughout the novel. Arachne's dependence on the road and her random driving is another form of web in "No Fixed Address". To tie in Arachne's driving with webs, we see Thomas's maps as webs of sorts. T...
