Report by: Kendall Hlewicki The Morgenstern ring symbolizes the Morgenstern family. Jace's father gave it to him moments before his death telling him it was the Wayland ring. Jace has held onto it because it reminds him of his father. It is a symbol of family, the past, and the future because it is Jace's family ring and has been passed down from generation to generation and it will continue to do so until there are no longer any more Morgensterns. Symbolism I think the Authors Purpose was to entertain people with a novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Filled with twist and turns you never know whats going to happen next. You will want to keep reading and never put the book down. The purpose is to entertain because it is a fantasy novel. This book is not factual and the only reason you would read it would be for pleasure. Authors Purpose When Clary and Simon go to their favorite club they are expecting nothing out of the ordinary, especially not a murder committed by three children covered in black tattos that only Clary can see. This is the first encounter Clary's ever had with Shadowhunters. When she receives a frantic call from her mother telling her not to return home she is filled with worry and ignoring her mothers warning she runs home. When she arives she is shocked to find it a mess, furniture knocked over, pillows ripped to shreds, her mothers paintings ruined, and no sign of her mother anywhere. When she turns to leave her path is blocked by a Ravenare demon blocking her path, not knowing what she is doing she threw the strange cell phone like device Jace gave her at it. Slowly the demon dies but not before it bites her injecting her with posion. Why is is she suddenly atracting demons? Where is her mother? Who are these strange children? And how did she suddenly gain the Sight? Plot The title City of Bones symbolizes what it is named after the Silent City (the second name for the City of Bones). The Silent City is where the Silent Brothers live. It is also the burial place for Shadowhunters that were killed in battle. Clary came to the City of Bones to get the memory block off of her memories. We learn about Magnus Bane here. I think one way this book relates to the real world is that Clary and her mother have communication issues. They keep secrets from each other. This makes them have a strained relationship because when ever they find out about a secret the other has been keeping they get mad at each other. This relates to the world because a lot of children hide things from there parents and this causes stress in the relationship. Clary's mother also hides her past from her. She thinks it will help Clary and protect her but it only causes trouble and fighting when Claty finds out the truth. This happens a lot in the real world. Parents try to hide things from their children because they think it will protect them but a lot of the time it only hurts them to think there parents kept secrets from them. Text to World Connection
