Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on House in wales. It needs to be at least 500 words. of the English Literature ic and Modern) of the Concerned 25 July House in Wales There is no denying the factthat in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, the house in Wales is a well rounded character in itself that is well intertwined in the framework of the overall plot. The house in Wales is mysteriously introduced into the plot after the ensuing of the last words of Jake Portman’s paranoid grandfather that were, “Find the bird. In the loop. On the other side of the old man’s grave. September Third, 1940 (Riggs 33).”

At the start of the story, Jake considers the house to be a figment of the old man’s imagination who declared the house in Wales to be “… an enchanted place,…, designed to keep kids safe from the monsters, on an island where the sun shined everyday and nobody ever got sick or died (Riggs 9)”. However, as Jake Portman starts to rummage into the belongings of his dead grandfather, he begins to believe in the reality of such a house. In that context, the house in Wales catches the imagination of Jake Portman, much before it comes out alive as a real and mysterious entity.

It goes without saying that the house in Wales, very much like a fictional character commanded a fear and reputation. When Jake arrived at the enchanted island and enquired of an old man regarding that particular house, the response of the old man that is, “The man chewed his lip and regarded me doubtfully, as if deciding whether to help or to wash his hands of the whole thing (Riggs 69)”, evinced much mystery and fear. Hence, house in Wales happened to be an intimidating character that had a deep influence on the imagination of Jake.

In the story, Riggs’ has masterfully created a cast of endearing and sometimes intimidating characters, each willing to extend one’s own unique contribution, in consonance with one’s abilities and special talents, in the war against the cannibalistic and evil monsters. However, irrespective of the spooky nature of most of the characters in the story, it is the house in Wales that turns out to be an all enveloping and expansive character, which constraints the mysterious characters residing in it, as Miss Peregrine reveal to Jake, “… If children loiter too long on your side of the loop, all the many years from which they have abstained will descend upon them at once, in a matter of hours (Riggs 206).”

Throughout the story, the house in Wales exists like a continually looming entity, either in the fanciful tales of Jake’s old grandfather, or as a place that evoked fear and revulsion amongst the denizens of the mysterious island, or as an actual abode where lived the children with strange peculiarities and their monstrous tormentors. The writer starts building a reputation of the house on the readers’ imagination, right from the start, till one shockingly comes to realize that “the story of Granpa Portman’s childhood wasn’t a fairy tale at all (Riggs 17)”.
