And so, within a couple years, was he-from cancer” (273). This message is short and concise, but it delivers a lot of information about the character. The father-in-law, once again, lost his hope and love. He kills his kitten like he saw his friend killed while in the infantry or the way he killed the enemy. He may say to himself, “no more killing, no more life should be taken away, at least from me,” but it is unavoidable.
Chapter One: Author’s Craft Building Relationships (Description) Hillenbrand shows that in fighting situations, war fighters have each other’s back and risk their own lives/ well being for others. This is illustrated in the text as, “Two weeks had passed. The men’s skin was burned, swollen, and cracked.” (page 155). This describes how fighters in the war would risk their own health to protect other fighters and universally to protect their country. In addition on page 204, the text describes how Louis and his “crew” made a decisions to risk their lives when it was not their duty to do it.
I chose the word “loyal” to best describe the character Telemachus because if his bravery and loyalty to his father.In the book Odyssey written by Homer,Telemachus waits for his father for twenty years and when he return he stood by his father side in battle against the people that tried to marry his mother.This shows where his loyalty had lied. Telemachus is loyal for his courage to stand in for his father while he was away and him helping him during a battle. “Amphinomus now came running at Odysseus broadsword naked in his hand the thought to make the great soldier give way at the door. But with a spear throw from behind Telemachus hits him between the shoulder” This quote shows that Telemachus was still loyal to his father even after
at the beginning of the act, Tamora, the captive of the Goths, delivers this speech :"". Because she and her sons are captured by Titus Andronicus, Titus wants to sacrifice Tamora's oldest son as a memorial to Titus' 21 sons who died during the war. She talks to Titus Andronicus solely to convince him to not slaughter her first born son and have mercy on her. In the sense that Titus has fought the brutal war for ten years and are in the hatred of 21 dead sons, Titus killed Tamora's son no matter how she begs him. However, despite the death of Tamora's son, Tamora's speech successfully moves Titus and makes him have sympathy by the logical flaw from the beginning to the end, the use of rhetorical devices, and ethos appeals.
Titus spent ten years fighting enemies of Rome and won honor for the country. This heroic deed took so much out of him making him to feel powerless and unable to lead the country despite the idea of people thinking he should be the new emperor. He is held up as a representation of goodness for his strict admirations for traditions. This strict devotion to tradition causes his foes to take revenge against him. Titus pursues revenge too but dies in the process.
They have been friends since their childhood and when Owen mistakenly kills John’s mother, their friendship actually grows stronger. During the Vietnam War draft, John begins to worry that he will be called to serve as his graduate student deferment will shortly expire. However, Owen does his research and discovers a potential soldier can escape combat if a portion of one his digits is missing. In an effort to save John from being forced to go, Owen uses a diamond knife from his father’s quarry to cut off a part of John’s finger. In the most obvious way, this displays Owen’s clear affection for John.
Gawain starts off the story very eager to lay down his life almost to the point of conceitedness. He also shows that he is honorable by taking his uncle's, King Arthur, place when Splendid challenged King Arthur's Court. Gawain also exhibited courage because there was a chance of death. Splendid the Green Knight thinks King Arthur's men might be phonies so he went to King Arthur’s court to challenge them. Splendid summoned King Arthur's men to cut off Splendid's head with the understanding that Splendid would get the opportunity to match Gawain's swing for swing a year and a day later.
It came out while the war was beginning to make people understand the extent to which such conflict was nonsensical and worthless. The singer uses a sarcastic tone as he promotes war and death. He thinks that war is senseless, so he uses such a foolish and crazy tone to tackle it. In the first stanza, McDonald sings, “So put down your books and pick up a gun, / We’re gonna have a whole lot of fun!”. The cantor refers to the unlucky college students who are drafted and end up dying for no serious cause.
Answering the call to serve causes enough moral conflict and killing for the war only adds to it. Tim O’Brien struggles to make sense of his thoughts after killing a Vietnamese man while outside of My Khe. O’Brien writes “The Man I Killed” detailing how the man’s disfigured appearance looks repetitively, and dreaming about what the man’s life must of been like before his death. Afterwards O’Brien reflects saying, “It was entirely automatic. I did not hate the young man; I did not see him as the enemy…” (p. 126).

On page 79 it states, “ Then the Fuhrer handed Dieter the medal.” Another symbol was Spencer’s heart. Spencer’s heart was the thing that made him join the army but also made him lose his life because he felt like he had to save the boy on the hill ( Dieter ). On page 22 it states, “ I think that you want to prove something to LuAnn Crow-ther.” In Solider Boys, two significant characters are Dieter and Spencer. First, Dieter is a 10 year old boy who is a member of the German “ Young People”. Dieter knows all about the last war and wants to fight and bring pride to his family.
I thought bringing the heroic cycle would be a great way to get a good story line that resembles Beowulf and his life. Well first off my story will be about a stuck up teenage boy that happens to get cancer and that goes through all these trials. The teenage boy just got told he has cancer and a 50% chance of surviving. His allies of course will be his wonderful parents and his smoking hot girlfriend. As in Beowulf he has his trusty soldiers behind him, ready to fight.
To become a good general he had to overcome a lot like his dad and older sister dying when he was Three years old, his mother dying, or being sent to Jacksons mill because his Step-Dad didn 't like him. He became a leader because he influenced all Confederate supporters to fight better so they could win the war. Everything Jackson did would 've made the south really happy, But the north would 've thought it was bad because they were against the confederates. All his life he worked as a Confederate

Estelle who is caught up in her own looks, and killed the baby of her lover.
They should know how to read and be exposed to the world around them to be good examples to their children and be better companions for their husbands. Women should be educated, but refined and submissive and understand that their education was to help them fulfill their roles as mothers and not to seek a role beyond the home. The education of wealthy white women generally focused on academic learning, good manners, and fine arts to suit their class position. They often attended boarding schools or at least private schools. “A well-known southern magazine DeBow’s Review extolled the numerous benefits of women’s education, ‘The effect has been to improve their minds and manners without robbing them of the extreme delicacy and refinement for which they have always been distinguished.’” (McMillen 94).
