Allegory story

One afternoon I was walking home from a long day at school which was really boring in fact but I was looking forward to meeting my new foster parents. It was the first evening I would be sharing with them so I was eager to get there. I had never actually spent time at their house either, so it would be nice to walk around and get used to my new home. I was walking home with my mates, and I popped into the shops to get some treats for me and my new family. I had some pieces of homework which were due in for tomorrow but I’m sure I will not have to do any of it

I was approaching my new home, on a quiet street with a couple of semi-detached houses across the road. With butterflies in my stomach, I rang the door bell.

The door opened and the first sight I saw was the enormous front room, chandeliers dangling from the ceiling and then there was my foster mum, Chole. “Good afternoon darling, welcome to your new home” we’re the first words which were said to me, i felt like home, a massive smile raised upon my face. I walked through the door, i buckled in as there was a small step, but fell into the arms of Chole. She giggled and put me back up straight and pointed in the direction of the front room, as she closed the door.
I walked in and came to a stop, i looked around and it was a beautiful house, fun entertainment all in this one room. As i stared, i saw a figure in the corner of my eye, in the garden there was my foster dad Jack. He came running in and greeted me, he was in his football kit, an Arsenal football kit with Jack Wilshere on the back, i laughed, seeing a grown adult in a football kit with studs and shinpads on is hilarious. “Hello hello hello, how are you today” he looked like he was up for a laugh and i was excited.
I was shown into my room and they left me to settle down, hearing my dad and his mates shouting at each other whilst playing football made me smile constantly. My room was a basic room, bed, wardrobe, tv and i was happy

The next day is was talking to my best mates about my new home, i told them not to share the story around to others as i don’t want people knowing I’m adopted, they all said they wont confidently as we walked into school.
At lunch time, i had a few people come towards me and started pointing their fingers at me whilst laughing. When i saw this, i knew what happened, one of my closest friends has told people in the year above, i was devastated.
I walked home all by myself and i arrived at the front door, i knew i had a dad who was bubbly and a mum who was caring, so i knew i will spill the beans soon. I reached for the door bell but pulled my hand back, i took a deep breath, wiped my face and rang it.
5 seconds of intense waiting, I saw the door handle turn, I tried to put a smile on my face, so I looked quite weird. The door opened and there was Chole(mum). ” good afternoon darling, how are you today” I shrugged my shoulders, I replied “fine” and headed upstairs straight to my room, it was a bit rude me not talking to her but I couldn’t just figure out why one of my closest friends would tell someone else.
Couple hours later, the same group of friends that I told my secret to knocked on my front door. My dad answered and called me down, I said I didn’t want to go out so they left.
At dinner time we watched the football, which made me mic happier, it was an champions league match against Montpellier when I received a text message saying ” hey, how are your new foster parents, are you having a good time with your fake mum and dad” I read this, and started to cry, my dad didn’t notice Ashe was shouting at the tele but my mum came a rapped her arms around me. “What’s wrong, your never like this” I replied “I know but I’m getting bullied” after I said that the whole room went silent, my dads face was stunned, my mum went into tears, it wasn’t a good evening
We all went to bed early that night, and I woke up to see my dad in a suit, I’ve never seen him in a suit, but I knew where this was heading. “Dad what you doing, your not coming to school with me!” “I think I’m am son, I’m not tolerating this, and your teachers need to stop it”

We’re got out the car, and headed for the school entrance, everyone was staring at me and then the shouting came. ‘Fake mummy and daddy’ ‘No real mum’ ‘you adopted s***’ were all called out, the whole school new of this, and I knew I would have to go to a different school after this

My question of animal farm

Why are the pigs taking charge and keep on persuading the other animals that they need the important and good equipment(eg.apples and the milk,the beds in the farm house and an extra hour sleep?

The pigs in this book are taking the role of the Soviet Union when Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky were in charge. There are 4 pigs in the book and the names are as follows: Napoleon represents Joseph Stalin,Snowball represents Leon Trotsky, the Russian media are Squelar and Karl Marx(the person who thought communism) is Old Major

The leaders of the Soviet Union established the Soviet Union and created a communist government, stating all the Union are equal

Trotsky(Snowball) is slowly gaining more respect from the people and Stalin is suspicious and tell the people(Russian media) that Trotsky was against the people, so they will all rebel against him and scare him out of power so now Joseph Stalin is in charge.

The pigs are taking charge because they are saying that they need the cleverest of the group and they need these resources to keep them focused

My analytic essay

My essay.

My essay will be about Romeo and Juleit, on how Shakespeare uses fate in the play. Romeo and Juliet is a well known play across the globe and the majority of people may of read it or heard about it as people say something and refer to this fantastic play. William Shakespeare wrote this play in 1599 during the Elizabethan England

“How does Shakespeare explore the concept of fate in Romeo and Juliet?”

I have chosen to do my essay about fate because I reckon that I done really well in class and this topic and interpretations is another I could of done,but I simply done more work and feel more comfortable about the subject fate.

First of all I am going to talk about how the prologue at the very beginning tells us something about fate. At the start, Shakespeare tells the audience what is going to happen and the spine of the story telling us what’s happens, like the CSI Miami when they tell you what happens at the start(the murder) then tells us the story behind that murder. “From forth the fatal lions of these two foes, a pair of star cross’d lovers take their life”  here Shakespeare tells us that 2 lovers will die over their love which was never meant to be. By saying this in the prologue, it sets up the play as a horror love play

In this paragraph I will be telling you about how Shakespeare uses his metaphors to describe things in different ways. It is really interesting how he describes the characters in different ways using metaphors to describe what he wants to say. A metaphor is a word or phrase that describes one thing being used to describe another.The metaphor I will be using is when Mercutio is trying to help Romeo loves someone else because Rosealine doesn’t like him. Mercutio is trying to persuade Romeo to love another lady. ” And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes” Mercutio is trying to tell Romeo that dreams are like the wind, they can let you down so easily and hurt you serverly, and they can blow past you so quickly. He is saying this because Romeo keeps on saying how he loves Roealine so much but she doesn’t like him, and compares Rosealine to every beautiful thing and Mercutio is having enough of this and he is trying to say the Rosealine is like the wind, she can below past you so quickly and hurt you. So Mercutio has persuaded Romeo to go to the capulet party and see other beautiful ladies, or stay stuck on Rosealine.

The next paragraph is how Shakespeare uses Religion in the play. Religion is a vital part of this play because back then, they only thought that if something happened, God made it happen. They did not believe that it may of happened by chance or they were just unlucky, everything was God’s decision so they obeyed this. A quote from the play which can help me prove my point is when Romeo is talking to Juliet and he said ‘Some consequence yet hanging in the stars ‘  By saying this we all know that he is talking to God and he is saying what ever happens,its Gods decision, and the fate is not in my hands God decides.So God has it already planed out from up there, and whatever the consequences Romeo is saying that it cant be changed

Now i will be talking about the Pathetic fantasy’s used in Baz Luhrmann’s re enacted play on Romeo and Juliet. They use the pathetic fantasy’s like every film does. In the film, it is used when something dramatic has happened. And the one which popped straight to my  is when Tybalt was shot dead by an angry Romeo figure. Before the death it was a normal night, cloudy, but when Tybalt died, it started raining really heavily and it looked like a bad storm was on it way. They use this in the film so it looks like something really bad has happened and they want it to look like that was the wrong decision

The use of the plot of coincidence plays a major role in this play, which leads to this dramatic play of love. And yes it when the servant walks into Romeo and Benvolio just before the Capulet party on that Sunday morning, now thats a co-incidence, just before when Romeo was talking about his love for Rosealine,now he has a chance to meet her at this great party which will be happeneing, but no one knowing that the lady Romeo will marry was at that very party. It is a co-incidence because the servant could of bumped into anyone but it was Romeo, when he is desperate for love this could be his last chance with Rosealine.Another co-incidence was that when Romeo was banished. Just hours after the marriage, to Juliet, Romeo goes and kills Juliet’s be loving cousin, Tybalt. The result of this is Romeo being banished from Verona and will never be allowed back to this City,were his family live and his new wife Juliet. This is a major co-incidence, right after the marriage and death, Romeo is banished so he can never see is wife Juliet and the only ways they can see each other again are for Juliet to leave with Romeo which is highly unlikely because they are rival families or, Juliet faking her death which then leads to 4 more deaths, Paris was killed by Romeo, Romeo saw Juliet’s fake dead body so kills himself but then Juliet wakes up and kills herself. The forth was Romeo’s mother, who killed herself because of the banishment of Romeo. This is a major co-incidence because this marriage or love shouldn’t of happened, and because of this it led to many deaths

My conclusion:

From reading Romeo and Juliet, i have learned different ways in writing. It has been really useful this topic, and im glad I took part in it and i have learned many knew techniques. This topic has been really enjoyable and i feel confident about it.

“How does Shakespeare explore the concept of fate in Romeo and Juliet?”                               Shakespeare uses fate in his play because it is interesting and keeps the reader guessing for the whole play. We know they both die in the end but the question is how they die. Committed suicide or was it meant to be. You will have to read and find out in this play, you can not skip to the end and read how they die, because it will be confusing. And that’s what’s really good about this famous play. The way Shakespeare uses fate all the time is really interesting, it gives us more clues off how this dramatic play of death ends

Lecture to the class

Me and Joe Muncur have decided to do a lecture to the class about the interpretations in the film Romeo and Juliet

Some interpretation:


Verona City-Mexico City

Tybalts death from sword fight-Car crash and shot

Me and Joe will be looking into these interpretations and more, why they would change thing, is it for us to have a better understanding on what’s going on or just to make the film more interesting

Metaphor work

In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare using a wide range of language throughout the play which when you closely analyse the thrase, it makes perfect sence

When Romeo is talking to Mercutio before the Capulet party, he keeps on talking about his love Rosealine on how perfect she is and he will never love another lady apart form her, and then Mercutio tells him that dreams do not always come true and he uses a metaphor “And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes”. In that he is saying that dreams are like wind, they can blow past you and let you down

By describing dreams like wind, he is saying dreams can fly away so quickly and hurt us badly anbuy saying this, Romeo has realised that he’s wasted so much time on a single girl when there are more out there

Metaphor in Romeo and Juliet

Your task is to identify the metaphor present in the following excerpt and then write a paragraph that explains the metaphor and its effect on the meaning of the passage it is embedded in.


True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,
Which is as thin of substance as the air
And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes
Even now the frozen bosom of the north,
And, being anger’d, puffs away from thence,
Turning his face to the dew-dropping south.

Feel free to watch the presentation again from this lesson to remind you of how to approach a passage that contains a metaphor:

Not what to say, How to say!

” these violent delights have violent ends” Said Frair Lawrence when Juliet and Romeo were getting married . He is saying that these to lovers are having a delightful lives but ,marrying each other will end in misery and death

Fate is revealed in Romeo and Juliet in many ways,but one of the most important is through the plot device of co-incidence,for example Romeo only found his true love Juliet from a co-incidence when him and Benvolio were walking down the street and luckily saw a servant who couldn’t read or write

Romeo and Juliet Practice

In the film and book Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare used many pieces of evidence for fate in the play. He talks about them to give clues to the readers so they do not loose interest and to keep them asking questions constantly for a more tense play. William Shakespeare  played it smart and told us all that the two lovers will die so constantly through the play questions are asked of how they die, and these clues give ideas In what’s happening

My quote I am analysing today is when Mercutio died during a fight between him and Tybalt, when Romeo tried to stop the fight and Tybalt stabbed him under the arm. ” A plague a’both houses” is what he said will fighting for his life. I think that Mercutio was talking to both Tybalt and Romeo and I think it meant that he’s cursing both houses and hopes for them to die and this brawl will stop. Because of this the audience are confused and keep wondering why in the play they keep talking about death. This raises awareness that there are more deaths to come but people keep wondering who is the next victim in this dramatic film. It keeps the audience guessing and they know there’s more to come
