The fear of the unknown
Alina Liu

The fear of the unknown is rife in Lord of the Flies by William Golding and “The Sufi Tale”. In Lord of the Flies, the “beast” or the “Lord of the Flies” represents the fear of the unknown, while in “Sufi tale” the watermelon is the symbol of fear. The boys in Lord of the Flies react almost the same as the villagers in “Sufi Tale”, they both cower and are afraid of this unknown. The settings of both stories are idyllic, but the fears have ruined the paradise by causing chaos. However the endings of both stories are entirely opposite due to the leaders’ solutions.
Since the settings in both stories are both idyllic, lives should be easy, peace, and happy. “The Sufi Tale” happens in a small quiet agricultural village. Villagers use simple tools and have plenty of trees, fruits, and food. People there have happy lives. Although in Lord of the Flies, the boys’ plane crushed, the island is perfect just like the Eden paradise. The boys do not have to worry about food, because the island is full of fruit trees and small animals that they can hunt such as pigs. Also, the weather of the island is warm, so they do not have a problem about how to keep themselves away from freezing at night. Therefore the island is idyllic, even Ralph said “this is a good island” and “we can have a good time on this island”.
Even though the fears of the unknown are presented in different forms in two stories, the chaos it causes does not change. Fear of the unknown is represented in Lord of the Flies by the “beast”. The kids are scared of the unknown “beast” and they think it is “the snake thing”, “creepers”, “the furry beast with claws, teeth, and wings”, and “the squid”. Yet, the “beast” is actually the Lord of the Flies, the evil within human. Fear in “The Sufi Tale” is represented by the watermelon which no one has ever seen. The farmers and other villagers start to panic and cower from this watermelon. In fact, both fears cause chaos.
The leaders’ ways of dispelling the fears are the most important factor that affects the result of whether chaos can be ended. There is an old saying in China, “While water can carry a boat, it can also overturn it.” Which is similar to both the swordsman in “the Sufi Tale” and Jack in Lord of the Flies. The swordsman comes in and slices the melon in half “killing” it and eats it, while Jack says “if there’s a beast, we’ll kill it.” Both of them are too powerful and ruthless, so they only to be shunned by the community, and have not dispelled the fear. The Farmer and Simon try to explain that the “beast” isn’t really a beast but only the farmer gets to tell his people. Simon gets brutally slaughtered on the beach. The farmer dispelled the fear, also if Simon is still alive, he may be able to end the chaos.
Fear is prevalent in Lord of the Flies and “the Sufi Tale”. The two stories are really analogous to each other. They both have idyllic settings, similar approaches of dispelling the fear, and same forms of fear. If Jack and the swordsman are gentler and listen to others more, will their still be shunned by the community? If Simon is stronger, will he be the leader? Will the ending be different, if the leaders’ in the two stories choose a different approach? Things might be different if the leader choose the different way. And also there are a lot of similiarities between the villagers in the two pieces. In Lord of the flies, the littluns are irresponsible to lamost everything, from builing the shelter to burning down the whole island. In Sufi Tale, the villagers do nothing except creating new fears, just like the littluns in the lord of the flies. When the leader comes up with an approach they will say express their own opinions, and when the ideas require actual efforts the hide away, like building the shelters in lord of the flies and cut the watermelon in the Sufi Tale.

Life of Pi

...Acclaim for Yann Martel's Life of Pi "Life of Pi is not just a readable and engaging novel, it's a finely twisted length of yarn— yarn implying a far-fetched story you can't quite swallow whole, but can't dismiss outright. Life of Pi is in this tradition—a story of uncertain veracity, made credible by the art of the yarn-spinner. Like its noteworthy ancestors, among which I take to be Robinson Crusoe, Gulliver's Travels, the Ancient Mariner, Moby Dick and Pincher Martin, it's a tale of disaster at sea coupled with miraculous survival—a boys' adventure for grownups." —Margaret Atwood, The Sunday Times (London) "A fabulous romp through an imagination by turns ecstatic, cunning, despairing and resilient, this novel is an impressive achievement. . . . Martel displays the clever voice and tremendous storytelling skills of an emerging master." —Publisher's Weekly (starred review) "[Life of Pi] has a buoyant, exotic, insistence reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe's most Gothic fiction. . . . Oddities abound and the storytelling is first-rate. Yann Martel has written a novel full of grisly reality, outlandish plot, inventive setting and thought-provoking questions about the value and purpose of fiction." —The Edmonton journal "Martel's ceaselessly clever writing . . . [and] artful, occasionally hilarious, internal dialogue . . . make a fine argument for the divinity of good art." —The Gazette "Astounding and beautiful. . . . The book is a pleasure not only for the subtleties of its......

Bloodlines of the Illuminati

...people who will want to return to the safe comfort of their darkness. I am not a conspiracy theorist. I deal with real facts, not theory. Some of the people I write about, I have met. Some of the people I expose are alive and very dangerous. The darkness has never liked the light. Yet, many of the secrets of the Illuminati are locked up tightly simply because secrecy is a way of life. It is such a way of life, that they resent the Carroll Quigleys and the James H. Billingtons who want to tell real historical facts rather than doctored up stories and myths. I have been an intense student of history since I could read, and I am deeply committed to the facts of history rather than the cover stories the public is fed to manipulate them.

Hia Its Ya Birthdya

...Yann Martel: Life of Pi life of pi A NOVEL author's note This book was born as I was hungry. Let me explain. In the spring of 1996, my second book, a novel, came out in Canada. It didn't fare well. Reviewers were puzzled, or damned it with faint praise. Then readers ignored it. Despite my best efforts at playing the clown or the trapeze artist, the media circus made no difference. The book did not move. Books lined the shelves of bookstores like kids standing in a row to play baseball or soccer, and mine was the gangly, unathletic kid that no one wanted on their team. It vanished quickly and quietly. The fiasco did not affect me too much. I had already moved on to another story, a novel set in Portugal in 1939. Only I was feeling restless. And I had a little money. So I flew to Bombay. This is not so illogical if you realize three things: that a stint in India will beat the restlessness out of any living creature; that a little money can go a long way there; and that a novel set in Portugal in 1939 may have very little to do with Portugal in 1939. I had been to India before, in the north, for five months. On that first trip I had come to the subcontinent completely unprepared. Actually, I had a preparation of one word. When I told a friend who knew the country well of my travel plans, he said casually, "They speak a funny English in India. They like words like bamboozle." I remembered his words as my plane started its descent towards Delhi, so the word......
