One piece of evidence that supports this claim is from “Ohio Man’s Shooting Of Ailing Wife Raises Questions About ‘Mercy Killings.” One quote is “...meant only to end the suffering of his wife, Barbara, 65.” This relates to Of Mice and Men because she was going to die anyway and he wanted to end her suffering. This is exactly what George wanted for Lennie. If he didn’t kill him Curley would’ve killed him and then he would’ve died without dignity. There are two reasons Curley wants to kill Lennie. The first reason is because he is a big guy, and Curley hates big guys.
According to Document A (“Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder…. Haste me to know’t, that I, with wings as swift as meditation or the thoughts of love, O god! Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder may my revenge be sweep.”) Basically his father tells him that Claudius has murdered him. Then, Hamlet tells his father that he will avenge him quickly but he doesn’t do it. I think lying to his dead father is unjust.
He is a man who was born to kill his father so; his parents did everything to kill him. But, fate decided to make his life more miserable so, he was saved by a shepherd and was given to the Queen and King of Corinth. As he grew old, for some reasons, he heard that he wasn’t the true son of the Queen and King of Corinth and he also heard a prophecy that he would kill his father and sleep with his mother. Horrified by this, he never stepped his foot again on the land of Corinth. With his journey of leaving his homeland, he came across a man who wanted to kill him however; he defended himself resulting to killing the said man which was known to be his father.
Abner is the crazy father who went to war and has some sort of disability. Sarty is Abner 's son who is by his side throughout the whole story. Faulkner portrays a theme that devotion is within family or within the law. Abner chooses devotion to the law when he starts to burn barns. When turning against family for the law, people really need to take a look back and see what caused this to happen.
I believed that dying and killing for one’s country was an honor. But I was wrong. I had to take the lives of so many men who had their whole lives ahead of them. This was to protect my comrades who would eventually get killed in battle. All this is just utterly irrational yet it is celebrated.
Because Billy experience many death in war, he did not emote in describing the awful and horrible nature of war. What this quote mean, is that war has destroyed Billy’s ability to sense emotions. Through Billy’s experience, we can understand that forcing adolescent into war, is basically sending them to die. Because what’s the point of sending innocent adolescent without experience to war, and causing them to come back from war, without being able to sense their own emotion. This is just one in many after effect war has on people.
This fear controls his decisions in life; Okonkwo forces his actions to depict only masculinity, but this creates an internal conflict. The internal conflict, of whether to display weakness or strength, is described through the death of Ikemefuna. Okonkwo’s internal conflict and fear of resembling his father overwhelms him, causing him to commit suicide. His death is shameful in his culture, demonstrating weakness, and it connects him with his father. Okonkwo’s need for masculinity eventually leads to his disgraceful death, revealing him as
This makes the reader rethink the pro-war propaganda spread by corruption to reinforce that as a patriot of your nation, you should be willing to give your life in a fight you had nothing to do with - how the deaths of many young men effects those back home who sometimes weren’t even aware that their loved ones had died not in a blaze of glory, but painfully and without recognition (Oh wow look, more use of context! Who’d’a thunk it?). The reader can feel the anger gently seething through the bared teeth in words that elicit empathy, while pointing out the sorrow - the only thing aside from death that a war guarantees. Most forms of art/expression are created with some emotion or meaning behind them - context adds to the understanding of this. The short poem has a rather sombre tone and is best read with the pace that the grammar implies, the drawing out of sentences and the rhetorical questions makes one think and bring their own interpretation and meaning to the poem - which is one of the main things artists aim to achieve, empathy through context.
Okonkwo was abusive, angry, and showing little emotion. He was abusive towards his wives and children. His solves his problem with fists, he likes fighting and wars. In the end Okonkwo lets fear take control of his life, he kills a messenger from British district office. Realising his fate and the fact that his tribe can't be saved from the influence of the British colonists, he commits suicide which is forbbiden in his tribe.
You work your heart out...", from these words we can see how angry and disappointed Juror #3 was towards his son. He was connecting negative memories of his son to the young suspect. So, the imagination of the young man who killed his father was absolutely intolerable to him. His disappointment and hatred for his son inadvertently made him certain that the child did killed his father. He allowed his own personal experiences to intrude into the judge which should be dispassionate and objective.
