In this essay i will be explaining the summary, also the author’s point of view, the values that I found and also the anti values.  So this is a story written by Elizabeth Gaskell that is called Christmas storms and sunshine. So this story starts with a confrontation between two important families that are the Jenkins and the Hodgsons. Mr. Jenkins and Mr. Hodgson are the two compositors of the main English newspaper in the town, Mr hodgson was the creator of the Examiner and Mr. Jenkins was the creator of the flying post so that’s why they are always fighting because they want to have the best newspaper. The problem is not only with the men it involves the women too because they dislike each other and often fight too.

Values patience and caring applied to The Lady Of Shalott. First of all to understand this story we need to have clear and know the meaning of these values. Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becomming annoyed or anxious. Caring is displaying kindness and concern for others. This story is about the lady of Shalott that is trapped in a tower that is located in Camelot for a long time, so here is were the value patience takes place because she stayed there all day and all night without doing anything but also she had a curse which consisted in not being able to see through the window because she will die so it was very uncomfortable because first she was alone in that place and second she couldn´t admire how pretty was that city or also she cannot see anyone, but instead of this critical situation she was a warrior and knew how to control herself overcoming the desire of looking out of the window. The only way she could look at Camelot …

Values fairness and justice applied to A Modest Proposal.
First we must understand the meaning of these two values. Fairness is the quality of making judgments that are free from discrimination. Justice is the quality of being impartial and fair but also is an action that is morally right and fair. These values are actually very similar but the difference between them is that fairness is about having a proper perspective and justice is about having the right thing done. At the beginning I see these two values reflected but during the story the values are lost. There is a town that is full of rich people but also there are a lot of poor people so Jonathan Swift seeing all the problems that were in this town he created a proposal or a plan to eradicate overpopulation and poverty and also for bring equality and fairness to the town. This plan consists in selling the children of the poor people since they turn one year old and they will be the food of the rich people. In my personal opinion …

Values trustworthness and thankful applied to From The Diary Of Samuel Pepys.

First of all we must be clear about the meaning of these two values. Trustworthiness that consists in the ability to be relied on as honest and truthful. Thankful consists in expressing gratitude and relief. At the beginning of the story I didn’t see the presence of these two values even in the characters because it starts talking about the coronation of the king and all the things that he had and for me that is very individualistic because it only talks about him. But later I could see one of the values in the storywhen Pepys was thankful because he could be in the coronation of the king Charles II and see how was it, what happened there so he really enjoy that time and was a great moment. Later a tragedy happens and appears another two values that are compassion and trustworthiness because all the people that live in the town help each other to get out of this problem. But this value wasn’t present all the tim…
