Slide 1: I did my project on The Hellenistic Spread. Slide 2: These are my questions. Slide 3: How was the Hellenistic Spread started? The time period known as the Hellenistic Age started when Alexander the Great died and ended when the Ptolemies were defeated. When Alexander died in 323 BC, his generals fought over control of his empire.
Did you know that Alexander the Great was one of the greatest conquers? Alexander was born in 358 B.C. and he lived in a kingdom in Greece called Macedonia. Alexander was the son of the King Phillip II, and Alexander became king. During his life, did Alexander show enough leadership, courage, and concern for others to be considered great?
Alexander the Great Alexander the Great, a powerful leader, is one of the most famous people in history. Alexander the Great was born in 356 BCE in a kingdom of Greece called Macedonia. Alexander inherited the kingdom at 20 years old when his father, King Philip, was assassinated. This left Alexander to conquer and expand his empire. (BGE) Was Alexander the Great really great?
But much to the anguish of Okonkwo, Nwoye embodied most of his grandfather’s traits and this enraged Okonkwo deeply. Okonkwo dreads that Nwoye will blot the acclaim and honour he has worked so hard to achieve. Nwoye’s “incipient laziness” was causing Okonkwo great deal of distress and he sought to correct him by “constant nagging and beating” and as a result Nwoye was “turning into a sad-faced youth” (Pg. 13). Nwoye is aware that he should adopt the more masculine traits of his tribesmen, as desired by his father but he still prefers his mother’s company.
If Ponyboy had to describe his older brother, “He looks older than twenty-tough, cool, and smart” (Hinton 6). Having a good image like the one Darry has on the gang can really affect them positively as they look up to someone to hopefully strive for. Darry knew that none of the boys had a father to look up to so instead of being another member of the Greasers, he took the biggest responsibility ever, which is to be the “man” of the the group. Darrel has every internal characteristic of being a good person but he also wants the gang to look their best to keep the reputation of a Greaser high. On the night of the rumble Darry was for sure trying to be an epitome for his gang and maybe even impress the Socs, “Darry had on a black T-shirt that showed every muscle on his chest even the flat hard muscles of his stomach” (Hinton 132).
A “father is a son’s first hero” (unknown). But what exactly is a hero? The exact definition of a hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. In the eyes of a young boy, it is easy to hold their own father on such a high and honorable pedestal; to them, it is inconceivable that their father could be anything but that strong and courageous figure. Be that as it may, the traumatic, unfortunate events that Elie Wisel was forced through, changed how he perceived his father.
Mainly because of his father. For example, in chapter 14 and 15 of “Into The Wild” By Jon Krakauer, he discuss how simliar him and McCandlesss were alike. Krakauer and McCandless was similar in a way when it came to both of their fathers’. They both rebel against their fathers and ended up going on an adventure. A quote from Krakauer I perceive how they both felt about the expectations their fathers wanted of them; “but I was not a clone of my father… Instead, I felt oppressed by the old man’s expectations..
The issues of new world and old world misunderstandings as well as contrasting values made these relationships challenging to uphold. The relationship involving Henry and his father crumbled due to vigorous values each side possessed. Even though they couldn’t preserve their relationship it created a guideline for how Henry would father Marty. The relationship gave Henry a sense of how a father should act and be the father that he never had. Henry’s relationship to Marty succeeded because of these guidelines.
In Greece, there was a law which made young women very unhappy. According to this law, a father was able to choose a man as a husband for his daughter and the daughter had to agree to marry this man, or die. One day, an old man, Egeus entered with his daughter, Hermia, and her beloved Lysander, and her suitor Demertius. Hermia was in love with Lysander, but her father wanted her to marry Demetrius. Lysander told that he was as good and as rich as Demetrius, but Egeus wouldn’t listen.
Due to Hatshepsut and Thutmose II not having a male child the title was passed on to his other male child born from one of his other wives a harem wife’s child? Although, Thutmose III was an infant when his father passed away. Being too young to take the position of King and Pharaoh, so Hatshepsut being the widow of the king procured the role of co-regent of
He promoted his soldiers based on their individual ability and personal achievements, and did not approve of having gentlemen who had no clue commanding his armies. “I had rather have a plain, russet-coated captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that which you call a gentleman and nothing else,” is what Oliver Cromwell once said. Maintaining tight discipline both on and off the battlefield was difficult; however it was easily achieved by Cromwell. He also fought alongside his men on the front lines and personal courage led to many of his military successes. Nevertheless, he cared and loved everyone in his army and everyone who served with him.
