"Everything I have done,
every change I have made to that circus, every impossible feat and astounding sight, I have done for
her." Celia _ Two magicians, Alexander and Prospero, decide that it is time for another competition of strength, so they each choose a student. Alexander selects Marco, a young boy from an orphanage, and Prospero nominates his young daughter, Celia. Though the two don't know it, Celia and Marco have just been placed into the ultimate test of not only their ability to manipulate the world around them (or "magic" as some may call it), but also their self control, stamina, and above all, their capability to control themselves both mentally and emotionally. -When Celia in The Night Circus is upset, she is able to change her clothing and use it as a symbol
-When Gulliver is ever sad or lonely, he would keep it to himself.
-Never quite sure what the characters would do next in The Night Circus
-Usually able to have an idea of what Gulliver is going to do next, for example if he is going to go on another trip or not The writing style of this book is so intriguing, it draws the reader in. Irony was put into use when the author wrote about Prospero, Celia's dad. He was a magician, and though it would seem that magicians were nice, he wasn't. The author used flashback during a part talking about the boy, Bailey. This portion of writing was interesting to hear about, and made me more curious to hear about the boy. There was imagery about the circus, different clothing, food, and how people looked. Using that tool made me, the reader, feel more involved in the book, and made it easier to understand things. Celia contributes to the Greater Good through the Circus, by doing anything and everything she can to help the circus be as self-sufficient as possible A simple game, is how it appears
But it gets deeper, it releases your fears
A competition of strengths
That leads to great lengths
Overcoming your strife
As you try to prepare
Can't run your own life
No free will, it isn't fair
Locked into this game
Nothing is ever the same
Being with the one you think of
Persevering to be with your love "The circus arrives without warning."
