How does a tortoise beat a hare in a race? In the short-story, “The Tortoise and the Hare”, the tortoise teaches many lessons that have impacted my life.

My passion of reading fables was inspired by…

Because fables have been told for many
generations, I looked up a movie on my favorite fable The Tortoise and the Hare. This movie is

laughing at the nature of it. I think it was very humorous. So now I know more about fables and
the similarities and differences between the original fable and the movie version of it. Now that I
can relate to my childhood, I had to relate to someone else’s. I…
As a child, I really enjoyed reading books, this may be because my mother and father would try to read to me each night before bed. One of my favorite bedtime stories would be Aesop 's fables, particularly the Tortoise and the Hare. Although the Hare was talented and had the ability to be a champion, his arrogance made him lose the race when he decided to sleep during the race because he thought his opponent was not good enough. To this day I personally resonate with the idea of the underdog…

though it appears as frigid and barren as the remains of his naiveté, its significance in allowing him to exhibit his depression cannot be understated.
Within this novel, Holden Caulfield exhibits his depression through various means, commonly drawing an audience in and using their empathy to keep them entranced.
