Pages 61-120 are basically explaining Tris’ new life and what her daily routine is. This section of the book starts out with Four, the new instructor of the transfers, showing his new students around the Dauntless compound. The first place Four takes the students is The Pit. The Pit is a big chasm that is so big that Tris couldn’t see the other side from where she stood. Then Four turned the group over to Eric one of the five leaders of dauntless. Eric showed the new initiates to their dormitories and gave them their schedules. Their first task was to learn how to shoot a gun. Tris was terrible at first because of her insecurities about holding a gun. In her old faction having a weapon was self-serving which went against their thrive for selflessness.
In the book Holes, written by Louis Sachar, there are multiple subplots that are all intertwined. In particular, the Elya and Madame Zeroni subplot is tied very closely with the main plot of the book. Madame Zeroni gives Elya a family lullaby that is actually about his future descendent, Stanley and Madame Zeroni’s future descendent, Zero. The “if only” song in Holes foreshadows Stanley and Zero’s character development.
In the short story, “Through the Tunnel,” the main character, Jerry, encounters an obstacle while traveling through the underwater tunnel; however, he is highly motivated to make it through. He pushes himself to the limit and eventually makes it through the tunnel. He develops a wise personality throughout the story by gaining knowledge and experience. He was no longer an eleven year old boy that was by his mother’s side constantly. In the end, Jerry became a wise and mature character due to his independence, discernment, and pride.
In Doris Lessing’s “Through the Tunnel”, Lessing uses imagery in order to show the audience that the transition from childhood to adulthood is a quest in itself. Lessing reveals that Jerry’s quest isn’t just to swim at the bay, but is to become a man by suggesting that swimming through the tunnel represents manhood and to become like the boys at the bay who Jerry idolizes as being men. It is evident that Lessing incorporates explicit overtones into her writing because in the text “It’s All About Sex…” Foster explains, “imagery is just a part of the much older tradition identified by Freud/Westen/Frazer/Jung about lances and swords and guns (and keys) as phallic symbols, chalices and grails (and bowls, of course, also) as symbols of female sexual organs.” (3). Therefore, Foster concludes that other objects can symbolize sexual organs, and that objects that can be filled tend to represent female sexuality. And Lessing incorporates this philosophy into her short story by writing, “All night the boy dreamed of the water-filled cave in the rock, and as soon as breakfast was over, he went to the bay.” (6). Therefore, Lessing uses the imagery of the water-filled cave that going through the tunnel is symbolic for having sexual intercourse because the tunnel represents female sexuality, because it can be filled. Furthermore, Jerry quite literally has a wet dream, further suggesting the explicit nature of the real quest. However, Lessing shows the audience the difficulty of this goal
Louis sachar is the author of the book Holes. Camp green lake. In the vary late 1900s. He goes to the past a lot during this tory to talk about his great great great grandfather and how they are cursed because of him. Not really to me. The narrator of Holes seems reliable but often interjects dark humor or irony into the narration. Many statements are made which require the reader to make his or her own inferences about the subject matter. At times the narrator breaks with the omniscient narration to address the reader directly and pose questions about the events in the book. The power of fate to determine events; the benefits of friendship; the destructive nature of cruelty; the importance of history in everyday life.

I remember like it was yesterday, my cousin and I was riding in the car with my uncle on our way to the movies, extremely excited to see the newest Disney movie, Holes. We had been watching previews and trailers for weeks, and it turned out to be just as good as we had imagined. It ended up being one of my favorite films of all time. I watched it multiple times when it started to come on television. I bought the DVD and then when I was 10 or 11 in the 5th grade I discovered there was a book. I always had problems when it came to reading, and in 5th grade, all the teachers came together and presented to the entire 5th grade class a time during the day called DEAR. DEAR is an acronym that stands for “Drop Everything and Read”. I had problems when it came to reading. Not because it was hard, but because I was lazy.
