3 Archetypal elements exhibited in Cyrano

Archetypal // Cyrano

Archetypal: recurrent as a symbol or motif in literature, art, or mythology: an archetypal journey representing the quest for identity.

The Novel Cyrano is famous for its romance, and it is also a very popular read in the U.S for Teenagers, specifically in high school. Cyrano displays a series of Obstacles against his love, and as all the Romance book goes, it gets resolved. There is one important aspect that has changed tremendously over this book, the protagonist picked up this uncurable disease while he dated his love. The protagonist faked his character and lied to this anonymous woman to bed. The lie was hidden forever until his death.

  1. Lies
  2. Hidden letters
  3. Similarity to real life


Behind the lies that Cyrano made, he had made the women fall for him. at the very end of the story, by tasting the words you can imagine that the Cyrano now isn’t the Cyrano before.

The Letters that he sent to the girl, copying the hand-writing, the use of words, and the taste, even the I felt into his sweet words.

The third important point to make Archetypal so important is the similarity of the book to real life. When he wrote this book he really imagined that the protagonist is himself, which it really reflects of a lot of his personas. His talent in music and extraordinary nose make him so special in-front of everyone.

(Text-To-World) How Young Couples Act Wrong

The novel Mr. Lynch’s Holiday by Catherine O Flynn reflects a well explain and repetitive issue presently happening in our world.

This book thoroughly explains a complex family facing series of obstacles that they need to solve in order to draw a period and really begin the life behaving like other normal families. One reason why they can’t behave normally because the protagonist couldn’t leave his past behind, “They remained where they were, staring at the front door” (24). Due to the protagonist Eamonn, cannot forget his first love, which remains a series of problems for his wife nowadays, and here will be introducing the parents and brothers into the scene “trying their best” to resolve the “a headache”.

This book best reveals the world right now because many couples have issues with their past which leads to fights and last causing divorce or break up. However, in the reading, the conflict resolved in a nice way, “Afterward, in the car, Eamonn said that he was sorry. ‘what for?’ ‘this past fortnight.’ I’ve been pathetic. I know that, I’m sorry you had to see me like this.’.” at the ending of the story that the protagonist apologizes for being sad and slightly irresponsible of the times when they were dating, internally, he fights over with his conscious where he had weird and stupid ideas which might when put into action, cause another big problem. The world presently happens many cases similar to the problem that they had in the novel, but, the good news is that the story shows a warm and happy ending while the world still fighting for nothing huge.

This book explicitly teach the naïve couples to remain in unhappy and facing break up or divorce, things can get better, and don’t fight for useless topics, why not use time wisely on meaningful articles instead of focusing too much on teary duds.

The Tell-Tale Heart: Second Person (POV)


Explaining My Thinking 

Down below is a revised copy of my writing that changes the point of view in the text. I changed The Tell-Tale Heart from a 1st person POV to the second person. I wanted to turn readers into active characters where it might interact with the protagonist. I wanted to see if it fits well with this section or not and it really fits well and organized. Really want to let the readers feel to be inside the story and take an action to better understand the story. I chose to use the second person because there are a lot of other characters or imaginary characters that can be pretended to get a better and different view. And to get a closer look, also to bring you, the reader more locked into the short story.


Rewrite for Second Person POV 

“Looking into his eyes, I see him smiling, with no fear. He welcomes us in and bade us well with manner. We asked, someone, have heard a shriek and reported to check. He denied, ‘the shriek, was one of my dreams.’ Then he added on, ‘the old man, I said, was absent in the country.’ He took us all to his house to search, impatiently, he said, ‘Search well.’ With a rushing and guilty temper. He led us, after a while, to the old man’s chamber. He showed us the treasure, secure, undisturbed.” Enthusiastically, he brought chairs into the room and desired us to rest here from their fatigue. While we see himself, in the wild audacity of a perfect triumph, he placed over the seat upon the very spot beneath which reposed the corpse of the victim that we never discovered. Instead, we were satisfied by his manners. But it felt like he was at singularly at ease. We all sat, and while he answered cheerily, we have gone off-topic to familiar things. But, ere long, we see him sweating more and too pale. His head started to ache, so he scratched, and he covered his ears to get rid of the fancied ringing. But we didn’t bother, so our chatter continued.

The Red Scarf Girl

The Red Scarf Girl

Dear Sostak and Schroeder,


            Our class is assigned to a book review which the prompt is based on the characterization. The book I am supposed to write about is The Red Scarf Girl.


In the book, The Red Scarf Girl has strongly demonstrated what detail or words helped you to understand the personality of a character. “But what if passes the audition and can’t pass the political background investigation?” above in this quote it clearly shows how word details can affect the main character which in this case, the main character, Ji-Li, she is forced to quit Drama because of his family issues.

“This is Ji-Li, principal long leaned forward proudly.” This quote from the Red Scarf girl expressly illustrates how family concerns or power can affect how the child is reacting in school. It is also connected to the first quote which her father is in great power, so the head of school has to throw some mercy to his girl.

Return of the Forgotten

Lisa Fielder


Connect with the conflict. Write a text-to-self response in which you connect with the protagonist’s struggle to overcome one of the conflicts listed in the definitions above. Who or what is the main character struggling against? Ask yourself if you’ve also struggled in the same way. Your first paragraph must explore one type of conflict in your independent novel and provide MLA formatted quotes to show your understanding of the type of conflict. Your second paragraph should be a much longer paragraph; in which you describe your own struggle to overcome the same type of conflict that the protagonist struggles to overcome. Include specific examples from your own life.


Would you rather be developing in a murky, gloomy tunnel, trapped, with hundreds and thousands of mice attached to you, or would you choose to be betrayed by your own family brother? MOUSEHEART Return to the Forgotten is one of the best illustrations of getting sold out by your family member. Titus, the leader and the elder of the mice suite, the father of Zucker, is the guardian of the family chain. He is the only member that can gain respect from everyone. His unfortunate son, Zucker, married Firren from the The Mice Family, and was betrayed by his wife, as she stole “something very precious from their family.” The betrayal of Firren took the gift away from the tunnel which can cause a lot of trouble. Will she be chased down or will she just be shield forever?


“He Knew that, from this moment forward, nothing would ever be the same.” (Fielder 8) The war horns has been blown between the couple, above in this quote, Zucker realized, there is no turning back, we have to bring the secret back otherwise the tunnel will never be as steady and restful as before. He began his search journey with his 4 children, secretly sneaking out during midnight. How will he act to situation? Continue on with his voyage, he expressly strives between love and desire. On one hand, he has a strong achievement with the family owner, however, loyalty between marriages are fixed to be weighty. The main character Frequently getting messages from family chief, intentionally mentioning not to be too amiable with his wife. Suffering from the tension between his family and the untrusted be-lover.


Speaking into the family glory, he had no choice but must to finish his father order. “what’s going on? Zucker demanded. Why are all of my children so frightened? It was then hopper realized what was wrong.” progressing in his travel, the four children have found the trace of Firren by using their nose and foot-prints. Searching one day after another, nothing has been updated. When the five of them are drove with desperation, surprisingly, Zucker seeking inside a shadowy gully drain. He suddenly tracked the foot-steps from Firren, finally, they have something caught. The drain leads to the core of The Mice Family. This clue leads to another complexed puzzle.


Reviewing from the top messages, Return of the Forgotten intentionally speaks of reclaiming the glory, fight over love or desire. Me myself personally have very similar careers, but in a much simpler way. Once in few years ago, I started playing hockey, as all you guys know, hockey is a brutal sport. At first, I was just a nub, however, I have overcome all the obstacles are practices to make what I am today. Similar to return to the forgotten, I play hockey before when I was young, but I also continued swimming, and my coach tells me, “you can only choose one.” I chose swimming. few years later at age of 9, I was drove with hockey addiction, and I told my mother “mom, I am giving up on swimming and reclaim hockey skills.” I have convinced my mother to switch swimming, and now, I can say I improved a lot and was selected by the Beijing Hockey team.


From all of above, the MOUSEHEART, Return of the Forgotten strongly demonstrates a well behaved character was betrayed from his closed family member, overcoming the difficulties and finally reaches his goal. From my experience, from the paragraph above, talks about my career similar to this, I have struggled the same way as the main character did in the book. Summing up, my career of life experiences the same struggle and difficulties as the main character worried in the book.

An Uncertain Mutiny

300-500 words Writing                                                                                                       Alex Zhu


An Uncertain Mutiny



Mutiny, a group of rebellion overthrow their government’s property or overrun the laws.


On June 1905, an unexpected mutiny happened in Russia, on a battleship, Potemkin. It was a disaster. The mutineers threw their officers overboard and took control of the ship. At first, I was just on-deck smoking, enjoying the ocean. Suddenly, a crowd of crew members crashed over to the control room, “they threw the officers off-board. I was anticipated stroked. I quickly ran downstairs to the engine room, I hid there. I was scared, afraid of them doing the same thing to me. Shall I go out? But, what if I get caught? I fought over this feeling for a long time. My stomach howled at me, I knew that I need some food after a while from noon.


Finally, I went upstairs and was caught easily. They pushed me hard onto the dive deck and trod me down with no mercy. I felt like how would people like them even live, and why would they do that? Drowned down to the ocean with questions in my head. Wait, I knew how to swim, I am a navy soldier, I can’t die like this. With all my desire and potential hanged on my family and Tsar, I used all my energy to swim back on land. After, I was quickly spotted by the soldiers on land, and I was brought back to St. Petersburg.


Further on, I reported the messages and the sites I saw on board the Potemkin. Tsar threw the cup down with anger. He looked at me and screamed, “are you people stupid! the guns I gave to you soldiers, why didn’t you use them?” I replied, “um, we, um, we were ambushed.” Tsar pointed the gun at me, “why don’t you go die?” nothing was in my mind at that moment. I was stirred. I suddenly realized that The Potemkin takes a real big part of the war, and we just lost it.


“I, myself, I feel sorrow, nor for you, however, you should let me go and try to reclaim the Potemkin.” Tsar overthought about it, it can be a great suggestion, but I am not agreeing with you. He fired at me, I pratfall down to the glowing, blasted floor.
