As Nelson Mandela wisely said “ I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee centers around the Finch family and the lessons that both Jem and Scout Finch learn as their father defends a black man accused of rape. Throughout To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, we see the idea of true courage reflected in Jem Finch’s journey. Harper Lee paints a picture of true courage as it is, and Jem Finch takes this lesson to heart as he sees examples of true courage in his life.
“Cannon to the right of them, cannon to the left of them.” The author is trying to give the readers a heroic image of the men by writing statements like “Boldly they rode and well” and Honour the charge they made!” This gives an image of brave soldiers riding through war like heroic-figures. The author uses diction to help express the imagery of the poem. Using words like “boldly” and “hero” exposes the author’s feelings of honor towards the “Light Brigade”. The diction helps Tennyson express his respect because it allows him to talk highly of the men, therefore, exposing his respect for the men. The imagery and diction he uses connects because he used his
She is asking what is wrong so you can help whether its about his health or his personal problems. Now that we see how she cared about his health we will see how she is married to a strong man. Portia is married to a very strong man. Portia can also give Brutus some ideas about how to run everything. Brutus says this about Portia, “You are my true and honorable wife, as dear to me as are the ruddy drops that visit my sad heart.’’I chose this quote because it explains how Brutus thinks she honorable and will trust
His instincts, like any child in Romantic writing, are positively driven even though, unlike the boys in the Innocence poem, he understands his oppression.” Norton and I had the same ideas about why the parents sold him, and thought that he was happy. Norton said, “It also serves to absolve them from feelings of guilt as ‘They think they have done me no injury’. Having forced their son into enslavement, teaching him to sing ‘the notes of woe’, the parents then head to church to praise ‘God and his priest and king’, who, the boy tells us, ‘make up a heaven of our misery’. Interestingly, in an earlier draft, Blake wrote that this grim trio ‘wrap themselves up in our misery’, suggesting that they take comfort from the misery of others. The final version is far more powerful; the speaker’s parents collude with Church and State, actively constructing a heaven out of the misery of others, or, as Nicholas Marsh argues, ‘they “make up” a heaven where, in fact, there is “misery”’.
One that cares for thee, And for thy maintenance commits his body to pain labor both by sea and land…Whilst thou liest warm at home, secure and safe” (Shakespeare 5.2.163-167). Katherine essentially explains that, in their time, their husbands are vital, strenuously working to provide while the women merely reap the benefits. Those who believe that Katherine actually loves Petruchio contrast her initial disparagement toward him to her open praise for him in her end speech. Katherine’s devotion and love for Petruchio is also shown because of her capacity to praise Petruchio in front of everyone. It is important to realize that Katherine is referring to Petruchio when she mentions “thy
On the Other hand, in George Harcourt's painting, he shows a man kissing his love before he goes off to war. This Painting can give the reader a sense of pride and joy before the hardships. Both of the poems are similar because they exhibit a soldier going to war and how it can differ. In summary, the cartoon “The Recruit’s Journey” by George Cruickshanks and the painting The Boer War by George Harcourt can make the reader feel different emotionally, but in the end happy because these brave men are off to go fight our fights for
A Heroic Man With his last breath he died in the eyes of his soldiers a hero; however, heroism in Henry the IV Part 1 has many different interpretations. Shakespeare portrays heroism from multiple perspectives in order to demonstrate the different perceptions of heroism based on an individual’s morals and values. Shakespeare also explores the evolution of heroism, from that of a successful warrior, to an individual that is willing to put the needs of others before their own. Shakespeare intertwines honour and heroism into the theme of the play and we must consider both when determining the heroic value of each character. Hotspur is seen honourably through the eyes of King Henry the IV.
They are very dedicated to their mission and not partake in passion, for that is a distraction to their duty. They are also supposed to respect and obey women and ensure their happiness at all times, or as Sir Gawain puts it, to “serve them unswervingly” (976). He also must uphold the laws of the land, including the commandments. These duties are all strict, and those which Sir Gawain has followed all his life. However, the lady of the castle is beautiful, she is lively, worshipped by all, including Sir Gawain, and she shows up in his bedroom the first day of his bet with the lord.

In the poems “To My Dear and Loving Husband” and “Upon the Burning of Our House” the author Anne Bradstreet allows the reader a glimpse of what she values. The two poems are alike because they both explore her religion and show her love for God. In these two poems they let you get a glimpse of the way she looked at things and saw the good side of everything. For example, in “ To My Dear and Loving Husband” it says “ if ever a man were loved by wife, then thee; if ever wife was happy in man,”. These two sentences show that she loves her husband with all her love and he loves her very much and she says that even if there was a man who could love her more she wouldn’t give him up.
