How Did Charlotte Write Her Words in Her Web?

Throughout the course of the book, Charlotte, the spider who serves as the protagonist of “Charlotte’s Web,” produces four messages in her web: “SOME PIG!,” “TERRIFIC,” “RADIANT,” and “HUMBLE.” Wilbur was about to be killed as a runt for meat, hence the original goal of the online writing was to save his life. Wilbur rises in fame along with the online writing.

According to Shmoop, the spider’s web in the narrative may serve as a metaphor for both sturdiness and fragility. Readers learn from Charlotte that although spiderwebs are resilient when they stay together, they are torn apart every time an insect enters a trap. Despite its strength and beauty, a spider’s web needs to be regularly repaired.

According to Shmoop, this story’s words on the internet have a lot of power. Wilbur’s rescue is all about perspective, as Charlotte explains that people would believe “nearly anything” they read in print.

At the fair, Wilbur the pig becomes a local celebrity when crowds of people gather to see “Zuckerman’s famous pig,” despite the fact that Wilbur is only well-known because Charlotte thinks Wilbur is unique. The two develop a close bond to the point where Wilbur assists Charlotte in caring for her numerous children.

E.B. White wrote “Charlotte’s Web,” a beloved children’s book, in 1952. The story is told in the book using anthropomorphized animals.
