  • The myth of Hercules deals with the choice between following the pleasureprinciple or the reality principle in life. So, likewise, does the fairy story of "TheThree Little Pigs.” Stories like the "The Three Little Pigs" are much favored bychildren over all "realistic" tales, particularly if they are presented with feeling bythe story teller. Children are enraptured when the huffing and puffing of the wolfis acted out for them. "The Three Little Pigs" teaches the nursery age child in amost enjoyable and dramatic form that we must not be lazy and take thingseasy, for if we do, we may perish. Intelligent planning and foresight combinedwith hard labor will make us victorious over even our most ferocious enemy-thewolf! The story also shows the advantages of growing up, since the third andwisest pig is usually depicted as the biggest and the oldest. (Bettelheim, 1975).Link to full document
  • THE ROAD NOT TAKENBY ROBERT FROST, 1916
  • The Road Not TakenTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claimBecause it was grassy and wanted wear,Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same,
  • And both that morning equally layIn leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to wayI doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.Robert Frost
