Parents love telling children fairy tales not only because they have an opportunity to spend time with their sons and daughters, but also because fairy tales, like fables, always contain a lesson or moral within them. Although both Kate Chopin's "The Storm," and D.H. Lawrence's "The Rocking Horse Winner" have some of the qualities of a child's fairy tale, only one of the stories has a moral tone, while the other has a very amoral one....   [tags: essays research papers]

Before he sees the horse, the narrator is feeling confused and angry; "anger against himself for blundering into this mud-trap" As you can see from another word in the sentence, 'blundering', the narrator's anger against himself has made him clumsy, and 'blundering' is a very clumsy word.
