This is a story about a man named Odysseus Laertiades who went off to war. After winning the war, he and his men were heading home when their ship got off track. They ended up in the land of the Cyclops. They were held captive by a god's, Poseidon Earthholder, son. Odysseus came up with a plan to get out of there which involved poking the Cyclops'
In the play The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare, exists two different types of characters: dynamic characters, meaning characters who change throughout the play by learning and growing through their experiences, and static characters, meaning characters that stagnate from the beginning to end. In particular, the most dynamic character in the play is King Leontes of Sicilia. In the beginning, Leontes believes in the self-assumed belief that his wife, Queen Hermione, is having affairs with his
leaves became closer. The sound of the dead fall leaves being crushed filled my ears with excitement. This was not the sound of a large squirrel burying a nut for the cold winter months, but the smooth steps of a deer. The deer cautiously maneuvered its way through the thick woods line towards the feeding field. I began to feel anxious not knowing what the first deer of the night would be or if the slight breeze would carry my scent to the precise nose of the deer. The birds in the field look to the

Lennie Small is a character that readers are drawn to right from the beginning of the book. His innocence stands out from the grimey coverings of loneliness and hopelessness that the other characters wear. The reason Lennie is so innocent is because he has a mental handicap, one that prevents him from understanding complex human emotions such as guilt, or concepts such as death. In addition Lennie has trouble remembering things, “" I tried and tried [to remember]...but it didn't do not good."
Brown” The dialogue, action and motivation revolve about the characters in the story (Abrams 32-33). It is the purpose of this essay to demonstrate the types of characters present in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown,” whether static or dynamic, whether flat or round, and whether protrayed through showing or telling.

"A bunch of people are freaking out over haywire toasters." Lightningbug mused, hovering in the air over the building, watching over the panic. "I 've already emptied
through my ears all the time. The echoed screams, as the metal doors closed shut, as they laid there trying to move, but unable to do anything. Then in my bravest voice I counted down to ten and the siren goes off as the animals are released from their cages. My voice was the last voice before they get ripped apart by those metal creatures. “Batch number 108 are approaching,” a voice says in my ear. “I repeat, they are approaching the entrance.” I sighed as I rubbed my eyes. I rose from my chair
