Tom Sawyer

white

I have read a lot  about Tom Sawyer. Tom Sawyer is a trouble maker that is very annoying to adults, but funny to kids. I wish that I have a friend like Tom. It would be so much fun.

Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother Sid. Tom dirties his clothes in a fight and is made to whitewash the fence the next day as punishment. He cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. He then trades the treasures for Sunday School tickets which one normally receives for memorizing verses, redeeming them for a Bible, much to the surprise and bewilderment of the superintendent who thought “it was simply preposterous that this boy had warehoused two thousand sheaves of Scriptural wisdom on his premises—a dozen would strain his capacity, without a doubt.”

Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new girl in town, and persuades her to get “engaged” by kissing him. But their romance collapses when she learns Tom has been “engaged” previously to Amy Lawrence. Shortly after Becky shuns him, he accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night, where they witness the murder of Dr. Robinson.

Tom, Huck, and Joe Harper run away to an island. While enjoying their new found freedom, the boys become aware that the community is sounding the river for their bodies. Tom sneaks back home one night to observe the commotion. After a brief moment of remorse at his loved ones’ suffering, Tom is struck by the idea of appearing at his own funeral.

Back in school, Tom gets himself back in Becky’s favor after he nobly accepts the blame for a book she has ripped. Soon, Muff Potter’s trial begins, in which Tom testifies against Injun Joe. Potter is acquitted, but Injun Joe flees the courtroom through a window. Tom then fears for his life as Injun Joe is at large and can easily find him.

Summer arrives, and Tom and Huck go hunting for buried treasure in a haunted house. After venturing upstairs they hear a noise below. Peering through holes in the floor, they see Injun Joe disguised as a deaf-mute Spaniard; Injun Joe and his companion plan to bury some stolen treasure of their own. From their hiding spot, Tom and Huck wriggle with delight at the prospect of digging it up. Huck begins to shadow Injun Joe nightly, watching for an opportunity to nab the gold. Meanwhile, Tom goes on a picnic to McDougal’s Cave with Becky and their classmates. In his overconfidence, Tom strays off the marked paths with Becky and they get hopelessly lost. That night, Huck sees Injun Joe and his partner making off with a box. He follows and overhears their plans to attack the Widow Douglas. By running to fetch help, Huck prevents the crime and becomes an anonymous hero.

As Tom and Becky wander the extensive cave complex for the next few days, Becky gets extremely dehydrated and starved, so Tom’s search for a way out gets even more determined, but Tom one day accidentally encounters Injun Joe, although the boy is not seen by his nemesis. Eventually, he finds a way out and find out they were five miles up river, but even with the confusion the two children are joyfully welcomed back by their community. As a preventive measure, Judge Thatcher has McDougal’s Cave sealed off, but this traps Injun Joe inside. When Tom hears of the sealing several days later and directs a posse to the cave, they find the corpse of Joe just inside the sealed entrance, starved to death.

A week later, having deduced from Injun Joe’s presence at McDougal’s Cave that the villain must have hidden the stolen gold inside, Tom takes Huck to the cave and they find the box of gold, the proceeds of which are invested for them. The Widow Douglas adopts Huck, and when Huck attempts to escape civilized life, Tom tricks him into thinking that he can join Tom’s robber band if he returns to the widow. Reluctantly, Huck agrees and goes back to her.

The hitchiker

llurmy

I read, ‘The hitchhiker.’ We have learned about, ‘foreshadow.’

Foreshadowing or guessing ahead is a literary device by which an author hints what is to come.[1] It is used to avoid disappointment, and sometimes used to arouse readers.[2][3]

A hint that is designed to mislead the audience is referred to as a red herring. A similar device is the flashforward (also known as prolepsis). However, foreshadowing only hints at a possible outcome within the confinement of a narrative. A flashforward is a scene that takes the narrative forward in time from the current point of the story in literature, film, television, and other media.[4][5] Foreshadowing is sometimes employed through characters explicitly predicting the future.[6]

The ‘hitchhiker’ was so weird. It wasn’t creepy, sort of weird. The man, Ronald, was a ghost. The End.

It wasn’t my style of a play.

In the fog

doctor

I read, the play called ‘In the fog’ and it ain’t so much fun. Because…It was sort of creepy. Think about it. To summarise the story, two strange guys called Zeke and Eben had killed a man, and a doctor was passing the way, and they talked, the doctor gave first aid, and he went away. Done! End of story! fin! Isn’t it vain?? And the dialogue was so depressing. Fine I admit it. This is the worst play I have ever seen!! It’s called, no fun, no excitment and absolutly no fantasy. Then what kind of play is that? Clearly this, ‘In the fog’ play needs more confidence. I am not saying this play is absolutly bad for everyone, because everyone has different points of view! But for me it’s so bad. I like plays with jokes, fantasy and excitement. 😦

😀 XD 😦 🙂 LOL  these are just for fun,, ignore them

these marks are the point of making my depressing blog better!!!!!

The fly

fly

I read, ‘The fly’ and it was very interesting. The banker said to the boy that he will forgive all the debt and the boy took a fly for a witness. First I thought the boy was crazy. Why in the world, have a FLY for a witness. A fly can’t talk! A fly ain’t human! A fly isn’t smart! But, I can now taste his cleverness. The boy was so desperate and clever that he took a fly, a passing fly for a witness. How was he so desperate! This story wasn’t just fun, but this story had a criticize against society.

SUCH A GOOD PLAY~!~!~!~!!!!

Jhon Henry

라

I read the peom, ‘Jhon Henry’. But it was not so thrilling because this poem was gloomy. I hate gloomy things. In fact, I like ‘The sneetches’ better than this ugly, gloomy poem! This poem was about working all day long and building a steam train. It was sort of sad and depressing and I so hated it.

Next time when people make a poem I wish they were bright. Gloomy poems just makes people more gloomy. But bright poems can make a person laugh and bright. A poem can do anything. But gloomy and ugly poem like this is no use for human. I wish I can only read fun poem like the sneetches. 😦

Reading two poems

poem

Frankly, I have always thought of poems are very short and cute. So I have thought that this poem was probably a kid’s poem.

But, it was such an outrage. A poem, is too long! A poem that’s so serious and so long. I really don’t like poems very much.

Reading, ‘The sea’ and ‘The sneetches’ made me feel so different. The poem, ‘The sea’ was..So serious. It was very hard for me to read as well too. The sea had such a serious, and a sad tone. But the poem, ‘The sneetches’ was so different! Now, this was easy for me to read. There was characters that I like! And also funny words that makes me laugh. But there’s only one prrblem, that it’s so long! I wish poems aren’t as long as ‘The sneetches’….
