Man vs. Himself
Jenny's town lives in fear of a wild boar that lives in the woods over by the Miller Farm. Jenny, however is curious and decides to go see if he really is that dangerous. She feels that the forest is pressing down on her as she walks through the woods and she is terrified that the boar would hurt her when she hears the pounding of his steps. When Jenny finally meets the boar, her feelings of fear disappear and is replaced by pity. She learns that the boar is afraid of her, who is only a little girl, while everyone in Glen Morgan is afraid of the boar. In the end, she overcame her curiosity and fear of the boar.
This story is from Jenny's point of view. She shows her feelings for the boar. She pities the boar and before she went to find him she felt scared of him. Also, she expresses her thoughts and opinions in the story. Jenny imagines that he is tearing through the forest in fear and pain. She thinks that it is really surprising that the whole town lived in fear of the boar when the boar itself is terrified of Jenny, who was only a little girl.
The genre of this story is the adventure genre because the main character goes on a journey to overcome a conflict in their life. Jenny goes searching for the boar and she has to overcome her fear when she sees him. The setting of the story, which takes place in the woods, gives the reader the sense that there is danger. This story also takes a long time to develop the characters so the reader can develop empathy for them. Jenny is introduced at the very beginning and you can tell how her thoughts about the boar was influenced by her town members. The boar was also introduced through Jenny's thoughts and actions.
The Boar
The boar is another character. He inspires change in Jenny and he made her realize that nothing is what it seems. The boar lives in the woods and he lives a very lonely life. He is very ugly and very hurt.
The story takes place in the woods over by the Miller farm in a small town called Glen Morgan. The atmosphere gives the reader a feeling of danger, especially when the boar was running through the forest toward Jenny. Words and phrases such 'as deep in the woods', 'forgot to breathe', horrible, confusing, 'stiff with wet eyes', and 'no time to scream and run' describe the atmosphere very well. It is also in present-day because cars were invented recently. There was an old, black Dodge past the splintery, rail fence in the woods which the boar resided.
Nothing is as it seems.
Jenny's town lives in fear of a wild boar, who seems terrifying. When Jenny meets the boar, she discovers that he is more terrified of Jenny, who is just a little girl, than Jenny is terrified of him.
