This book is a book that students are able to follow along easily by repeating what the chicks say during the story. It does have a surprising ending which might scare younger students which is why I am not surprised that it is recommended for older students.

In one article alone the critic describes the collection as “a vision of polarity and paradox,” “a tangle of irresolvable ambiguities,” and “a paradoxical world in which irreconcilable polarities are at the foundation” (Luplow 216, 223, 230). In the article, “Babel’s Red Cavalry: Epic and Pathos, History and Culture,” Milton includes a tedious list of contradictions for reader to explore: “the way of violence versus the way of peace, Cossack versus Jew, the new revolutionary order versus traditional society, noble savage versus civilized man, and a pair that may subsume all of these—nature versus culture” (Milton 2...   [tags: Artwork]

- Contrary to popular literary studies, French fairy tales may not accurately depict the lives of 17th century peasantry. In Dorothy Thelander’s “Mother Goose and Her Goslings,” she argues that these stories are actually a mixture of “folk literature and high literature” (Thelander 35). Better suited to the name “Salon tales” (Thelander 34), these stories have both peasant and bourgeois elements and are more representative of the environment in which their authors wrote. Because authors such as Perrault and d’Aulnoy came from the bourgeois class, their versions of traditional fairy tales reflect the social values found within aristocratic literary salons, not the hardships and taboo issues of...   [tags: Mother Goose and her Goslings]

Whether consciously or not, writers like James Joyce and Virginia Woolf applied Pound’s dictate by breaking with convention and applying a variety of innovative techniques.
