A young child’s perspective is utilised to mimic the innocence of emotions as he first-hand experiences an invasion, the horror of war and to expose raw sensations of realisation of human malevolence. The colour Red is symbolic to how power is created, used and ruled alluding

    Since I was a child I have always loved the color red. Whenever my parents would ask me what color I wanted for various objects, or theme color for a party, I would always choose red. Until coming into this class, I never gave much thought to what the color red represents or why I have always liked it. I have read studies about the physiological and psychological impact that colors have upon individuals, and I have observed the effect of certain colors upon individuals, and I’ve found that my basic

    Red Queen is the fantasy that I’ve been searching for. It was bloody magnificent. That was a pun by the way and I am immensely proud of that. Red Queen took the best elements from all our favorites (and our not so much) tales and mushed them into one phenomenal book with an equally addictive storyline. None of the similarities bordered on obvious plagiarism, rather, it was more of the way one retells an old classic. Red Queen begins as all high fantasy dystopias do, with a young unassuming girl

    The red convertible itself is a major use of symbolism in this story. The two brothers end up buying a car and it seems to be their way of relieving stress. “Some people hang on to details when they travel, but we didn’t let them bother us and just lived our everyday lives here to there”. This proves that the car is a source of excitement and adventure. It also becomes a symbolism of youth and brotherhood. As the colour of the car also happens to be red, it symbolises blood- the major link of relatives

    102-109 21 October 2014 The Red Convertible Criticism’s In Laura Kryhoski’s critical analysis of “The Red Convertible,” she points out several elements often overlooked when reading the short story for the first time. At first glance, the story appears “definably tragic” (Kryhoski). Kryhoski claims that if the reader were to investigate author Louise Erdrich’s background, the story would seem less of a tragedy and more of a reflection of her upbringing. As the narrator in “The Red Convertible,” Lyman seems
