It was Sunday afternoon, and I was trying to escape my duties at home by telling my mom I needed to get outside on such a beautiful day. I sat down on the bridge and looked down at the shining river. The water was twenty feet below me and looked about fifteen to twenty feet deep. The large trees surrounding the river had just…

Free time to be spent on complaining about how much that I needed, just needed, a new bicycle. I did eventually…

This picture was taken on the day of my uncle’s wedding. At the age of…

    While Fitzgerald uses green to symbolise the character Gatsby and his inner feelings, Hawthorne uses the red and yellow garments that Pearl, Hester Prynne’s daughter must wear, effectively demonstrating that Prynne and Pearl are symbolic of her same sin. An example of this is in Chapter 7, when Hester “in contriving the child’s garb, had allowed the gorgeous tendencies of her imagination their full play; arraying her in crimson velvet tunic, of a peculiar cut, abundantly embroidered with…
