How does small thing change the future

Lots of people think about their present and future but, they don’t usually care about everything they are doing even though it can change the future a lot. In the book A sound of thunder, this book talks about how small thing in the present can change the future a lot.

Even a small thing like touching a grass or stepping an ant can change the future in many different ways. In the scene where Eckels didn’t understand why can’t they even kill a mouse, Travis said “And all the families of the families of that one mouse! With a stamp of your foot, you annihilate first one, then a dozen, then a thousand, a million, a billion possible mice!” (Bradbury 5) When Eckels said like he still didn’t understand, Travis said “Well, what about the foxes that’ll need those mice to survive? For want of a lion, all manner of insects, vultures, infinite billions of life forms are thrown into chaos and destruction.” (6) Also, when Eckels came back to the present, he noticed that the result of the president election which was the day before changed and the grammar of English changed because he killed a butterfly from the past. This shows that even a small thing like killing a butterfly can change the future because when Eckels killed the butterfly, the future changed in a strange way.

To sum up, the book, A sound of thunder’s theme shows that even a small thing can change the future in many different ways.

The SCAR

 

Lots of people see the same person and hear same information about the person but might think and judge the person differently. Like this situation, the book “The scar” written by An-Mei Hsu says a story about how aunt and popo sees An-mei’s mother as thoughtless person and An-mei seeing her mother as a person who needs to be worshiped.

In “The Scar”, we can see Nuyer as a thoughtless person from one perspective and person who is worshipped in other perspective. In the aunt and popo’s perspective, they saw Nuyer as a thoughtless person. Aunt said “Auntie said our mother was so thoughtless she had fled north in a big hurry, without taking the dowry furniture from her marriage to my father, without bringing her ten pairs of silver chopsticks, without paying respect to my father’s grave and those of our ancestors.” (Tan 2) This shows why aunt and popo was ashamed and didn’t liked Nuyer. This relates to the story by being the main conflict and solving them. In other hand, Nuyer is worshipped person. It wasn’t because she explained why she was chased out or begging for forgiveness. The narrator said that “Here is how I came to love my mother. How I saw her my own nature. What was beneath my skin. Inside my bones.”(4) This shows that Nuyer is a really loyal person for every person. Nuyer is a thoughtless person for some peoples but, other people think that Nuyer needs to be worshipped.

The bass that changed everything

The found poem was made by a paragraph at page four of the short story of “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant” written by W.D. Wetherell. It is man verses himself conflict in the story narrator, the protagonist choosing Sheila Mant or the biggest bass he got in his life. In rising action, while the narrator was riding a canoe with the girl, he got the biggest bass in his fishing rod but, Sheila Mant thought fishing was stupid. At the climax, narrator was forced to make a decision by choosing Sheila Mant or the bass until the canoe goes to the shore. While thinking about this, the thought of the narrator shows his personality clear by showing choosing Sheila Mant by using a penknife to cut the string to give up the fish. In conclusion, the narrator lost both the girl and the bass and learned that he won’t make the same mistake again and wouldn’t hesitate next time.
