The “Young Man’s Folly” and the “Flight”

In two stories “Young Man’s Folly”, written by Susan Michalicka and “Flight”, written by Doris Lessing, there are a lot of similarities. In “Young Man’s Folly”, the author tells a story about a boy and his mother, that by boy’s foolishness of his father are left alone. The boy is not very happy, so he blames his mom that he doesn’t have his father anymore. However, at the end the boy realizes that his mom’s the one that truly loves him. One the other hand, in the story “Flight”, the writer is telling a story about and old man who’s not able to let go to his granddaughter, as in the past he had a similar situation with his daughter. At the end he’d understood what love is all about. The main idea of these two stories is change in main characters, and how as the time passes they realize what’s right.
What I saw was that each main character changes at the end of each story but yet still the title has an numerous meaning. Symbolism plays the main role in context of change in characters. In “Flight”, a grandfather changes his way of thinking by giving (symbolizing) freedom to the bird. As in deeper thought of it, it means he’s letting his granddaughter to choose the right path that she wants to follow. (Prove in the text) An old man said: - “Now you can go”. Which in the text was a reference to the bird but really these four words symbolized that his granddaughter is free to go. In “Young Man’s Folly”, the change occurred in the boy when at the end he’d understood that real love is where his mother was. But what hurt the boy so bad was a confusion that his dad changed, he did not understand why he needed “more space”, or why “finding himself” if he has everything he ever needed with them. Luckily mother of the boy stayed the same, and it was her love that helped him get through his crisis of change. In both stories the main characters are upset because of the change that other characters made in their life. Both characters

    ancestor?). The problem is not how they evolved; it’s how the flight stroke evolved. To answer our question, some examples are birds and pterosaurs (flying reptiles). Pterosaurs were the first vertebrae to evolve and true fliers as proved by UC Berkeley 's Dr. Kevin Padian. They are derived from the bipedal, cursorial archosaur. Another successful and diverse group to evolve are birds. The birds did not exist two hundred million years ago. The first evidence was found in Germany about the origin of birds…

    In the two short stories, “Young Goodman Brown” and, “The Minister’s Black Veil,” Nathaniel Hawthorne depicts a romantic view of people and sin. Hawthorne himself is the great grandson of one of the judges who accused people mistakenly at the Salem Witch Trials. Because of this memory, he is tormented by morals, and most of his literature is romance, where the setting is dark and gloomy and the main character does not give in to evil, even though he or she experiences its powerful prevalence. Apart…
