Response to “The Three Little Pigs” by James Finn Garner
I liked humorous interpretation of famous fairy tale “Three Pigs” by James Finn Garner. He depicts the relationship between different layers of our modern society from the political, but rather humorous point of view. As is well known political issues also have concealed economical meaning therefore I will attempt to share my thoughts after reading this story.
We observe how three pigs manage to live peaceful life. They start from transition to settled life and built various dwellings depending on the available materials and construction skills. In spite of stratification of their society they “lived in harmony with their environment” (James Garner). However, as a result of no special efforts made by pigs to protect themselves and their land the wolves finally invaded foreign territory. And though the wolves “meddled in the internal affairs” (James Garner), the pigs received a bonus – banana plantations and well-developed resort infrastructure. The question is whether they will be able to maintain and further develop these facilities.
It’s really difficult to say who I feel sorry for – either party suffered from this conflict. Every human being has his own comprehension of harmony and peace – for some it’s a quite harbor, for the others – it’s a movement forward. And we should find a way to maintain balance so that “to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds”.
