    Eudora Welty's "A Worn Path" is a story that emphasizes the natural symbolism of the surroundings. As the story begins, we are introduced to our main character, Phoenix Jackson; she is described as a small, old Negro woman. I believe that the name Eudora Welty gives our main character is very symbolic. The legend of the Phoenix is about a fabled sacred bird of ancient Egyptians. The bird is said to come out of Arabia every 500 years to Heliopolis, where it burned itself on the altar and rose again from its ashes, young and beautiful.

    In William Golding's Lord of the Flies, the boys who are stranded on the island come in contact with many unique elements that symbolize ideas or concepts. Through the use of symbols such as the beast, the pig's head, and even Piggy's specs, Golding demonstrates that humans, when liberated from society's rules and taboos, allow their natural capacity for evil to dominate their existence. One of the most important and most obvious symbols in Lord of the Flies is the object that gives the novel its name, the pig's head. Golding's description of the slaughtered animal's head on a spear

However, the significance of the story goes far beyond merely killing an animal for its meat, as it tells mostly of the emotional struggle he feels as a hunter. Bass acknowledges the fact that he is a predator but wonders if his insatiable need for meat will somehow affect him in a later life. He questions whether or not he will have to pay for all of the innocent animals’ deaths that he has caused. Killing gives him a natural fee

    The Whitetail Deer in Michigan Deer have been a valuable resource in Michigan since the first Native Americans began to hunt them. Prior to European settlement, Michigan had an abundant deer herd in the south. The mixture of hardwoods, wetlands, bogs and forest openings was perfect for deer. There were few deer in the virgin forests of the north, which were inhabited mostly by elk and moose. The mature trees were so dense that sunlight could not reach the forest floor and therefore little deer food was available. As farmers and settlers moved into southern Michigan, deer were exterminated by

    Consider the way Golding presents Jack and his development throughout ‘Lord of the Flies’. Jack is a leader, but his methods are the natural opposite to those of Ralph. Jack is dictatorial and aggressive; he has a strong desire to lead and asserts himself through his prowess as a hunter, which deteriorates into lust for killing. The character of Jack shows how, without the restrictions of adults or society, certain people revert to primitive desires and actions. Jack’s character degenerates as the story unfolds.
