The Lord of the Rings
Wallace kills Lochlan and Mornay for their betrayal, and wages a guerrilla war against the English for the next seven years, assisted by Isabella, with whom he eventually has an affair. Robert sets up a meeting with Wallace in Edinburgh, but Robert's father has conspired with other nobles to capture and hand over Wallace to the English.
Learning of his treachery, Robert disowns his father. Isabella exacts revenge on the now terminally ill Longshanks by telling him that his bloodline will be destroyed upon his death as she is now pregnant with Wallace's child. In London, Wallace is brought before an English magistrate, tried for high treason, and condemned to public torture and beheading. Even whilst being hanged, drawn and quartered, Wallace refuses to submit to the king.
As cries for mercy come from the watching crowd deeply moved by the Scotsman's valor, the magistrate offers him one final chance, asking him only to utter the word, "Mercy", and be granted a quick death.
Wallace instead shouts, "Freedom! Moments before being decapitated, Wallace sees a vision of Murron in the crowd, smiling at him. Sal's Christmas plans are shattered as "now the bug was on me again, and the bug's name was Dean Moriarty.
Dean wants Sal to make love to Marylou, but Sal declines. Both of them stay briefly in a hotel, but soon she moves out, following a nightclub owner.

Together, they visit nightclubs and listen to Slim Gaillard and other jazz musicians. The stay ends on a sour note: He is depressed and lonesome; none of his friends are around.
After receiving some money, he leaves Denver for San Francisco to see Dean.Lord of the Flies - Chapter 1 Summary and Analysis - William Golding

By bus they move on to Detroit and spend a night on Skid RowDean hoping to find his homeless father. They go on partying in New York, where Dean meets Inez and gets her pregnant while his wife is expecting their second child. Part Four[ edit ] In the spring ofSal gets the itch to travel again while Dean is working as a parking lot attendant in Manhattan, living with his girlfriend Inez. Sal notices that he has been reduced to simple pleasures—listening to basketball games and looking at erotic playing cards.
By bus Sal takes to the road again, passing Washington, D. Mattie laughs, saying that she already knew that and just wanted to help cheer them up. Taylor asks if Mattie has any grandchildren, and Mattie gives a confusing answer: Taylor admires how Mattie escapes the boundaries that other men and women fall into. Active Themes Mattie continues to give Taylor child care advice, warning her that dehydration is a constant danger in Arizona, and Taylor realizes how much about motherhood she still has to learn.
Mattie then asks Taylor what kind of work she might be looking for. Mattie laughs and goes to show Taylor the bean vines she has in a little garden that she keeps in the back yard of her shop. Taylor is amazed by the bountiful produce available in January, and Mattie explains that a frost usually arrives to kill the crops mid winter, but that this year has been uncommonly warm. Yet the unusual warmth is a small reminder that all is not right with nature, as Kingsolver hints at human-influenced climate change.
These bean trees will become very meaningful to Turtle, another immigrant to Tucson. Active Themes Taylor marvels at how different Tucson feels, even though it is still American land. Her hometown in Kentucky is stuck twenty years behind the cultural developments of the rest of the country, and Taylor feels as though she has catapulted into the future.
This is exciting, but Taylor is also unnerved by the lack of community she senses in this urban center. She decides to leave her car with Mattie and take Turtle to live in a hotel for the meantime. Living in this hotel is much rougher than the hotel where Taylor lived in Oklahoma, with a clientele of prostitutes and homeless people congregating at the corner.
Taylor comments on the differences in both the land and the culture of Tucson. Taylor is used to the sleepy rhythms of rural Kentucky, where the community may be stifling but it is also a support system that acts like a family. Taylor feels the lack of people that she knows, compounded by living in an impersonal hotel. Active Themes Taylor is especially confused by a new type of poor people that she meets in Tucson.
Though they look like the bag ladies that Taylor remembers from Kentucky, they seem to enjoy their exotic appearance and live in galleries and studios they have converted out of an abandoned shopping mall. Taylor goes inside one of these stores try to understand, and is mainly confused by the art and the artist herself.
Book 1, Chapters 1–6
Kingsolver pokes fun at these artists, who think that they are living closer to the earth but are actually creating artificial barriers between themselves and the people around them. Active Themes Taylor struggles to find a new source of income as her savings dwindle, but draws the line at giving blood as the other homeless people in Tucson do.
She tries to work at the blood bank because of her experience in the Pittman County Hospital, but is turned away because she has no license in the state of Arizona. She hangs out at Burger Derby, a dying fast food joint, talking to the girl behind the counter.
The girl, Sandi, turns out to be crazy about the Kentucky Derby horse race and loves hearing all the juicy details that Taylor knows about Secretariat, a famous race horse.
Taylor, coming from rural Kentucky, does not have the right documentation to be taken seriously in the more developed city of Tucson. She feels like an outsider in this place, even though she wants it to be her home. In contrast, Sandi dreams of the pastoral charms of Kentucky. Just as Taylor thought that Arizona was out of a movie, people who are not from Kentucky think that it is like a movie.
