“Perhaps the world ends here” by Joy Harjo represents our cycle of life in the form of a kitchen table where every occasion of our life occurs from birth to death.”the gifts of earth are brought and prepared “ which beautifully begins our life journey where earth has given us the gifts in form of food, water and air but as mentioned since creation, so it keeps on continuing and does not stop for anyone. The table is also shown as the aspect of life which keeps us connected with our family and contains our memories within it. “At this table we sing with joy, with sorrow” by this we understand that it is not only related to good but also bad times which brings us together giving us strength to keep going. As the table is the center of our home, it shows no matter where a person goes they always come back to the table and always will need a good company. “Eating of the last sweet bite” where our journey ends with the pleasant memories in the table.

In “Gooseberries” a story written by Anton Chekhor, Ivan Ivanish tells a story of his brother where he seeks happiness through his dream of owning a farm with gooseberries in the countryside. How never in his life thought he might be the reason to his wife’s death as he was ignoring that in wise to get the happiness like in his childhood through the farm. Through his brother’s experience and story, he concludes that everyone wants to experience happiness in their lives but that no one wants to acknowledge the sadness that is an inevitable aspect of life. Where in order to be happy people ignore the suffering of others. With all the experience he wonders “why should we wait for things to happen”. He thinks there is no existence of happiness nor should it in one’s life purpose, but we should rather do things which are reasonable and grand while we can in order to give a purpose to our life. This way one can be at peace and fill their hearts with the pleasure of enjoying things in the present with no expectation and regret in the future.

After reading Christina Rossetti’s poetry “Goblin market”, from my understanding it depicts the curiosity , innocence and love between two sisters as well as the unknown evil intention and temptation of the goblins. The goblins gives up the first impression of a strange beings who sells their orchard fruit, which is supposed to be sweet to tongue and pleasing to eyes. Laura’s curiosity is piqued by the way they describes their fruit, unaware from the intentions behind those sweet mesmerizing fruits. Laura’s sister lizzie notices her sister interest in them, which worries her and prompts her to advise Laura not to even look at them. Overcome by her temptation, she tries the fruit. It was something she never tasted before and sucked till her lips were sore. That decision leads her to find no more joy.Worried for her sister, Lizzie manages to bring the fruit from the goblins who “Coax’d and fought her, bullied and besought her”. “Laura awaken as from a dream; laugh’d in the innocent old way” as if the fruit brought her life and joy back. This poem shows the evil comes in sweet and enchanting form and that curiosity can be dangerous. But above all a true love can make differences and protects from these evils.
