Redwall Essay

665 words - 3 pages


     Redwall is a tale of a huge abbey which is named Redwall and within it live all sorts of animals, such as badgers, mice, squirrels, shrews, rabbits and hedgehogs. Redwall’s greatest hero is named Matthias. He is young mouse who seems normal, even average, in appearance, but through a series of adventures and tests he discovers that he has courage and greatness within. This book is recommended to all teenagers because of three main reasons. The first reason is that it is a story about good verses evil and each has their own champions. The second is that it has amazing detail that makes you feel like you are right there. The last one is that there is one last major battle to see what who will prevail.
     In the story Matthias, who represents Good, has to go on a journey to retrieve a lost relic. In doing so he also goes on a journey of life. During his journey he grows from a boy to a man. He finds in himself what true heroes really are and becomes one that Redwall has never seen before. Cluny who represents Evil in the story is a rat that tries to take over Redwall. He controls an army of rats who obey his every desire. In this book Good verses Evil must face off. This quotation shows this:
          Matthias stood in the middle of a dozen fallen rats with
his sword raised looking for his next victim. Cluny stepped
out of the shadows with his sword in hand. Matthias’
heart stopped with the icy glare Cluny gave him. This
lasted only a second before Matthias leaped forward
with his bellowing war cry, “REDWALLLLL!”.
Clearly this quotation shows how Good must always face Evil at some point even though the odds do not seem to be in your favor. Evil can be defeated through the strength and courage of Good....
