“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen thought. That’s the problem.” - A.A. Milne. I feel that this means some people command the animals to work, while not understanding what the animal also wants or needs. In the debate, “Are Zoos Bad News?”, written anonymously, the author reports the ethical and unethical reasoning between zoos. This came after the attack on three victims. In my opinion, the existence of zoos should endure seeing that it educates people, zoos can alter the behaviour of people to animals and zoos promote wildlife conservation.
Most people think of small animals, such as sheep, as meek and submissive due to their frequent portrayal as innocent characters in children’s stories and folklore; in these same stories, antagonistic characters tend to be fiercer animals such as lions or wolves. However, the children’s movie Zootopia, in which all characters are mammals, shows that this is not always the case. The characters in this film break the stereotypes against them by being different or the opposite of what the audience expects based on their species or occupation within the film. For instance, Judy Hopps solves the case on the missing mammals and why they went savage despite being a “dumb bunny”, and Nick Wilde turns from a sly con artist to the first fox cop. This
The topic of zoos and whether or not they’re humane have quickly become one of the biggest controversial topics in the past twenty years. There is not much of a ‘middle’ perspective in this debate, rather people tend to lie on two completely opposite ends of the spectrum when displaying
The Zoo is ever child’s dream of seeing strange animals that they have never seen before, but this zoo is like no other. “It was kept with things he could hunt, and it really wasn’t like any animal sanctuary” (Goldman 60). The zoo of Death as the zoo is called is full of
The most prominent use of figurative language in the story is the author’s use of symbolism. There are multiple items throughout
Saniya Sullivan Language Arts 6B Mrs. Harris May 16, 2017 Unit 3 Portfolio Assignment: Research Simulation Task People think that animals want to be in zoos, but they really do not. In some zoos the owners or zookeepers see how the environment is making the animals feel bad or good and they try to change it by giving the animals a similar habitat to where they came from. All three stories “The Stripes Will Survive”, “The Zoos Go Wild”, and “Our Beautiful Macaws and Why They Need Enrichment” deal with protecting animals but they all do so in different ways.
The setting allows the author of "Zoo" to write about the way the species viewed each other. As for one example, in the text "Zoo" the setting switch from Earth to Kaan shows how each species had viewed the other. "And the crowds
The first element that the author developed is suspense. The author had many examples of this literary element. On page 59 in Liberty it states, “ ‘You haven’t seen us, you understand?’ ” The 2 men in the glasses she had never seen before wanted to stay unknown. The text on page 57 says, “ ‘Trouble,’ Mami suggested, kicking the puppy away.” This makes you wonder will she start to ever like the dog or not. On page 58 the text says, “….Mister Victor coming around our house and going off to study with Papi to talk over important things in low, worried voices.” This causes a lot of suspense because why would he come around their house acting suspicious? It makes you as yourself. All of these quotes above give good examples of suspense. These quotes make the story interesting and add more details to the story.
The Foreshadowing of The Lottery Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” is an interesting short story taking place in a small town during the twentieth century. The town is getting ready to hold their annual lottery. Readers, however, do not know what the lottery entails until the end of the story where the narrator reveals that the “winner” is to be stoned to death in an unusual ritual. The story shows the danger of following traditions without practical reasoning. By evaluating the three criteria: an engaging or suspenseful plot, a well-structured story, and a satisfying conclusion, readers can thoroughly analyze the effectiveness of the author in creating a well-written story with a strong central idea.
The literary element characterization is used to prove the theme of the story; that everyone should be who they are and not change for anything. The narrator in the story was obsessed with Sheila Mant and fishing for bass on their date, Sheila announced that she thought fishing was dumb but the “[narrator] (Wetherell 2) would have given anything not to appear dumb in Sheila's severe and unforgiving eyes.” As of right now, the narrator would do anything to be with Sheila Mant and has yet to realize that he has to stay with what he loves to do, fishing. He has not
