Nursery Rhymes Analysis

Analysis
The nursery rhyme was first published by the Boston publishing firm Marsh, Capen
& Lyon, as an original poem by Sarah Josepha Hale on May 24, 1830, and was
inspired by an actual incident.[1]
As a young girl, Mary Sawyer (later Mary Tyler) kept a pet lamb that she took to
school one day at the suggestion of her brother. A commotion naturally ensued. Mary
recalled: "Visiting school that morning was a young man by the name of John
Roulstone, a nephew of the Reverend Lemuel Capen, who was then settled
in Sterling. It was the custom then for students to prepare for college with ministers,
and for this purpose Roulstone was studying with his uncle. The young man was very
much pleased with the incident of the lamb and the next day he rode across the fields
on horseback to the little old schoolhouse and handed me a slip of paper which had
written upon it the three original stanzas of the poem.
There are two competing theories on the origin of this poem. One holds that
Roulstone wrote the first four lines and that the final twelve lines, less childlike than
the first, were composed by Sarah Josepha Hale the other is that Hale was
responsible for the entire poem.
Mary Sawyer's house, located in Sterling, Massachusetts, was destroyed by arson on
August 12, 2007. A statue representing Mary's Little Lamb stands in the town center.
The Redstone School, which was built in 1798, was purchased by Henry Ford and
relocated to a churchyard on the property of Longfellow's Wayside Inn in Sudbury,
Massachusetts.
The rhyme is also famous for being the first thing recorded by Thomas Edison on his
newly invented phonograph in 1877. It was the first instance of recorded verse. In
1927, Edison re-enacted the recording, which still survives. The earliest recording
(1878) was retrieved by 3-D imaging equipment in 2012.
Blues musicians Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughan both popularized the song in
their own albums: Guy composing his own bluesy version of the song for his
album A Man and the Blues in 1968 and Vaughan covering Guy's version in his 1983

debut album, Texas Flood, with both also infusing the first four lines of the nursery
rhyme.

Aesop Fables Analysis

1. PLOT

A lion, threatens a mouse that wakes him from sleep, has a sudden a change
of heart after catching his prey and decides to let it go.. With no words there
is no begging or pleading on the mouses part-or bargaining on the lions- just
great facial expression drawn to clearly show the emotions of each character.
The mouse begs forgiveness and makes the point that such unworthy prey
would bring the lion no honor. The lion then agrees and sets the mouse free.
Later, the lion is netted by hunters. Hearing it roaring, the mouse remembers
its clemency and frees it by gnawing through the ropes
2. The Characters of the Lion and the Mouse
Despite the size difference between the lion and the mouse, both of these
main characters are shown as equally important, both with large and
commanding presences. The fact that there is no words to tap into personality
is irrelevant, the drawings skillfully done in a manner that brings both
characters to us clearly, and in some ways brings them to life on an even
deeper level then words could.
Both the lion and the mouse are great characters, classic but at the same time
different, with a lot for us to learn from each of them.
3. Setting
Place: In the forest
Time :Daily light
4. Theme
Do good deeds to others even though you have been treated badly
5. Moral value
The moral of the story is that mercy brings its reward and that there is no
being so small that it cannot help a greater.

1. Plot
Mowgli, a young orphan boy, is found in a basket in the deep jungles
of India by Bagheera,

a black

panther who

promptly

takes

him

to

mother wolf who has just had cubs. She raises him along with her own cubs and
Mowgli soon becomes well acquainted with jungle life. Mowgli is shown ten
years later, playing with his wolf siblings.
One night, when the wolf tribe learns that Shere Khan, a man-eating Bengal tiger,
has returned to the jungle, they realize that Mowgli must be taken to the "ManVillage" for his own safety. Bagheera volunteers to escort him back. They leave
that very night, but Mowgli is determined to stay in the jungle. He and Bagheera
rest in a tree for the night, where Kaa, a hungry python, tries to devour Mowgli,
but Bagheera intervenes. The next morning, Mowgli tries to join the elephant

patrol led by Colonel Hathi and his wife Winifred. Bagheera finds Mowgli, but
after a fight decides to leave Mowgli on his own. Mowgli soon meets up with the
laid-back, fun-loving bear Baloo, who promises to raise Mowgli himself and
never take him back to the Man-Village.
Shortly afterwards, a group of monkeys kidnap Mowgli and take him to their
leader, King Louie the orang-utan. King Louie offers to help Mowgli stay in the
jungle if he will tell Louie how to make fire like other humans. However, since
he was not raised by humans, Mowgli does not know how to make fire. Bagheera
and Baloo arrive to rescue Mowgli and in the ensuing chaos, King Louie's palace
is demolished to rubble. Bagheera speaks to Baloo that night and convinces him
that the jungle will never be safe for Mowgli so long as Shere Khan is there. In
the morning, Baloo reluctantly explains to Mowgli that the Man-Village is best
for the boy, but Mowgli accuses him of breaking his promise and runs away. As
Baloo sets off in search of Mowgli, Bagheera rallies the help of Hathi and his
patrol. However, Shere Khan himself, who was eavesdropping on Bagheera and
Hathi's conversation, is now determined to hunt and kill Mowgli himself.
Meanwhile, Mowgli has encountered Kaa once again, but thanks to the unwitting
intervention of the suspicious Shere Khan, Mowgli escapes. As a storm gathers, a
depressed Mowgli encounters a group of friendly vultures who accept Mowgli as
a fellow outcast. Shere Khan appears shortly after, scaring off the vultures and
confronting Mowgli. Baloo rushes to the rescue and tries to keep Shere Khan
away from Mowgli, but is injured. When lightning strikes a nearby tree and sets
it ablaze, the vultures swoop in to distract Shere Khan while Mowgli gathers
flaming branches and ties them to Shere Khan's tail. Terrified of fire, the tiger
panics and runs off.
Bagheera and Baloo take Mowgli to the edge of the Man-Village, but Mowgli is
still hesitant to go there. His mind soon changes when he is smitten by a beautiful
young girl from the village who is coming down by the riverside to fetch water.
After noticing Mowgli, she "accidentally" drops her water pot. Mowgli retrieves
it for her and follows her into the Man-Village. After Mowgli chooses to stay in
the Man-Village, Baloo and Bagheera decide to head home, content that Mowgli
is safe and happy with his own kind.

here.

Little Toomai and Kala Nag (the elephant)


A Boy and His Elephant Little Toomai's chapter might be called "Toomai of the

speak for Mowgli at the Wolf Pack Council when they're deciding whether to

rhymes) calls him "The Big One" .

him sunning himself on a rock. He's thirty feet long (yikes), and hates the
monkeys because they make fun of him.

Setting
Place: In the forest
Time :Daily light

4. Themes
Mistrust of People Who are Different.
The first three stories in Jungle Book, about half of the book, deal with Mowgli's
boyhood and his adventures growing up amidst the wolf pack. From the very
beginning, when he is presented to the wolf council as an infant, the reader feels
the distrust and suspicion of the other wolves toward him. These feelings among
the wolves are fanned by the cunning and devious Shere Khan, the tiger.
Although Mowgli is allowed to grow to adolescence, the reader senses the
confrontation that is to come. Eventually, he is turned out of the pack, not
because he did anything wrong, but because he is different from the wolves.
Having been expelled from the pack, Mowgli tries living with the humans in
the small village just outside of the jungle. Although he is like the villagers in
appearance.

5. Moral value

The moral of the story is always look someone in the eye. In real life ,its an
immense sign of respect.

1. Plot
Max Hare and Toby Tortoise are having a foot race. Max has much more
style, and is generally cocky. He pauses for a short nap, to chat up the bunnies
outside a girl's school (and show off in several sports). When he hears the
crowd roar for Toby approaching the finish line, he takes off, but a lastminute sprint, and a long neck, give Toby the inevitable victory.
2. The characters
The two main charaters in this story are the tortoise and the Hare who are
planning to race each other.

Time: Daylight
Place: Forest
4. Theme

The main theme to this story is that slow and steady wins the race,and not to
be careless with your talents. The Hare ,whose speed was far more superior to
that of the Tortoise ,took advantage of the fact that he could easily win the
race, by stopping to take a nap.This ultimately allowed the tortoise to win
,proving that slow and steady can win.
5. Moral value

The moral of the story of Hare and the Tortoise is Slow but steady wins the
race.
