What happens once “happily ever after” is over and done with? No one knows if the fairy tale dream continues or if it is over and the reality of the world begins to set in. In the play “Into the Woods”, we see a plethora of literature's favorite fairy tales woven together to teach a lesson on responsibility and getting what you wish for. This production has two separate acts to it, both distinctly different. The first act serves as a continuation of the fairy tale world that we have all come to know, this serves the purpose of immediately connecting the audience to the story being told. In the second act, the entire mood changes and turns very dark and somber. This transition of mood and overall feel of the play is primed
He really made the audience believe that he was truly in love with Evalina through his expressions and the way he acted around her. I could see in the way he looked at the actress who played Evalina that he admired her and her presence. The actor who played Spunk had a very good singing voice and guitar skills. I really enjoyed watching him act as he was using his real life talents throughout the play. I did believe the characters to an extent. The dialogue was very realistic, but the way some characters delivered their lines was not adequate. On a scale of one to ten, the rating I would give the cast is an 8. The voices and overall acting was a lot better than I expected coming into the play. I cared a lot about what happened to the characters. When Spunk was fighting against Jim Bishop I did not want him to get hurt. When he came out with a wound I felt bad for him. I could also see the fear in Evalina’s eyes when she saw Spunk. The ending made me happy because I wanted Spunk and Evalina to be together and really cared for them. The choreography was blocked very well. The dances were very in sync and the positioning of the actors was successful. There was a lot of time in between scene changes and the directing did a good job of filling this time gap. When the narrator, Zora, came on stage, the actors were good at freezing in place while she spoke. I could tell that several hours and
Into the Wild, written by Jon Krakauer, is a memoir about how living in the wilderness and how Chris McCandless lived nearly two years in the wild. Throughout the novel, Krakauer relates Chris’ adventures to his own experience in mountain climbing and living on his own. This is not your typical memoir where the author tells a story about their lives. Jon Krakauer is not the main character; however he tells a story of this boy who leaves his well-developed family for no apparent reason. But not only does he tell Chris’ story, he tells his own by fusing them altogether.
“The Emerald Forest” is a movie produced by John Boorman in 1985 and based on a true story in the Brazilian Rainforest. The film is a about Tommy, a young boy, quickly and silently taken away by a tribe in the Amazon called, The Invisible People. His dad then, spends 10 years searching for him and eventually succeeds after running into a war party with another tribe called, The Fierce People -enemies of the invisible people- who pursue him. They finally meet by chance, but the boy refuses to go back to his original family and civilization and explains that he belongs to the forest now. The father couldn't understand the choice made by Tommy and asks the chief of the tribe to order the boy to
Into the woods was an adventurous play that was perfect for the use of your imagination and spirit. Into the Woods had numerous different fairy tales involved which could make a small child feel like he/she was in heaven. The acting, music, concept, stage design, costumes, and even the language of the play all mixed to perfection. The crowd became involved right away with the irony of the play. I liked how Into the Woods was set up in the beginning because it made the play easier to follow. However, the play seemed to be a little lengthy and some of the characters became annoying. I do not believe the second part of the play altogether was necessary. Into the Woods did not fulfill my expectations to the max,
This political cartoon ties into my theme since it shows how the man is stressing over the news and thoughts and how he must relieve himself from it all. Not only that, but it also ties into the passage Why I Went to the Woods by Henry David Thoreau. This can be proven as it is seen in the passage when the author says that the character would mine and burrow their way through the hills in front of them. With this being a metaphor, the author uses figurative language as he explains how the character in the passage is trying to get away from all of their bad thoughts, trying to leave all of his stress behind but the stress just continues to pile up, just like a hill. This also ties in with my Theme and my political cartoon since they all show
Although precisely on target in his assessment of Chris McCandless being "in touch with the bare-bones essence of nature", Gordon Young's preceding description of Chris should be rephrased: A profoundly Un-American figure, uncompromising in his approach and thoroughly optimistic about the future. For Chris McCandless did not set out to show or prove his American character. Neither does he approve or want to exemplify a true modern American character, because true American character does not seek solitude, preferring "the saddle to the streetcar", or "the star-sprinkled sky to a roof", or, especially, "the obscure and difficult trail, leading into the unknown, to any paved highway and the deep place of
Today in our society, people are inventing new technology every day to make us more comfortable, such as T.Vs, vehicle, cell phones and even robots. But the other side of the problem is people are getting separated with nature. Richard Louv, the author of “Last Child in the Woods”, wrote this passage to show us that these new technologies and entertainments are separating humans and nature by using anecdotes, imagery, and allusions.
In the passages, “The Last Wilderness Preserve” and “A New Land of Opportunity”, the authors make arguments about how human behavior and actions impact antarctica.
Maxine Kumin?s, Woodchucks provides an interesting and creative perspective into the mind state of those influenced by nazi warfare. What begins as a seemingly humorous cat and mouse hunt, reminiscent of such movie classics as Caddyshack, soon develops into an insatiable lust for blood. Kumin?s descriptive language provides the reader with the insight necessary to understand to the speaker?s psychology as they are driven beyond the boundaries of pacifism.

Forest Hills Northern is an extremely diverse school. I consider myself lucky for being able to participate in activities such as our international fair, where students can open a booth for their home country and educate other students about their local culture and cuisine. I'm a strong believer in the idea that diversity is essential to having a good educational experience. I'm specifically seeking out schools that share my same ideals. I've also sought cultural experiences outside of traditional classwork. Last summer I took a backpacking course through the National Outdoor Leadership School in Washington. I met people from all over the country; some came from as far as California or Rhode Island. When you spend thirty days in the wilderness
Bill Bryson’s “A Walk in the Woods” is a book that epitomizes the struggles that one needs to go through in order to better themselves. This is evident with the main characters. They are two middle aged men named Bryson, a man who resideds in New Hampshire and Katz, Bryson’s overweight alcoholic college friend from Iowa. When he thought of someone to accompany him, a grumpy college friend named Katz came to mind. As they started off, Bryson started off with the goal that the trail was only being hiked as a way to see the grand nation of America, but it lead to so much more as it uncovered many important topics. This is true because the trail was filled with adventure in discovering America’s heartland and realizing their own personal
