The test was designed to permit the Nazi doctors to observe the victims’ reactions to the poison up to the point of death”(Marks). In this experiment conducted by the Nazi doctors, they were testing to see how the human subjects would react to the poison when injected or shot with a bullet that contained the poison . In the quote, it also says that they observed the reaction all the way up to death which confirms that several people died during this experiment. This quote from the article “Medical Experimentations” supports the idea that the inhumane experiments conducted by the Nazi doctors were terrible and was an appalling advantage they used to kill several innocent people. Before the Nuremberg trials, two doctors were obsessed with racial theories and collected skulls of all races of people.
Slide 1- Introduction Good morning/afternoon everybody, today I have been assigned with informing you all about the Aztecs, or more importantly, the reason for their annihilation. Now you may be thinking that it was mainly to do with a war, but it is actually almost solely a disease called the variola disease or as it’s more commonly known, small-pox Slide 2-What were the symptoms and effects Now you may be wondering what made the disease so dangerous to the Aztecs. The main problem of the disease was the fact that not only did it kill 3/10 people effected it also severely lowered the victims fighting capabilities meaning that when the Spanish attempted to fight the Aztecs, it became much more favourable to the Aztecs.

As a group we made sure to introduce the black knights as one of their own people so that they would not be thought of as foreign bodies. The depletion of food supplies and the destroying of the castle demonstrates how cancer cells affect the body. Next, the metaphor of knights corrupting other citizens establishes how the cancer cells or Black Knights duplicate and spread like tumors. Taking over the castle is equivalent to the mass build up of abnormal cells that is a malignant
In the play, Oedipus the King, there are many different examples of situational, dramatic, and verbal irony. Irony is very prevalent during this play, mostly because of the backstory of Oedipus. Oedipus’s parents were presented with an oracle that stated their son, Oedipus, would eventually destroy the city of Thebes, kill his father, and lie with his own mother (Oedipus Rex 1205-1206). As the story goes on, Thebes is hit with a plague and the only way to get rid of it is to exile or kill the murderer of King Laius, the king of Thebes (99-108). Although Oedipus was determined to find the murderer of Laius, it ended up being himself (1118-1123).
The tale begins with the introduction of a plague that is ravishing the city, of which Oedipus is helpless against it; he is forced to rely on the gods. The plague is severe, causing high mortality, miscarriages, and stillbirths. According to the Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal, “[The evidence from the book] strongly support[s] the notion that the disease was incurable at the time” (Kousoulis,
As a character soon clarifies, it means that in order to end the plague, the killer of the past king must be driven out. This heavily implies that the plague is a product of the gods that is meant to punish Oedipus. If the prophecy does not exist, or if the plague does not exist, or even if the condition for relief is
They took the horse inside, only to find that it was filled with Greek soldiers. Troy was doomed. Who won the war? After ten long years,the Greeks won the war.
When making the decision to destroy his half-finished female form, Victor recalls that he had already “created a fiend of unparalleled barbarity” in his first monster, and that this new creation might even be “ten thousand times more malignant than her mate” (138). In the wake of the trauma the monster has caused both to himself and his family (via his post-partum depressive state and the deaths of Justine and William respectively), Frankenstein is now overwhelmingly conscious of the horrible consequences that birth can entail. In contrast to his previous aspirations, he characterizes his creation with words of negative connotation such as “barbarous” and “fiend,” and suggests that a future creation could even be exponentially more evil. Victor’s initial dreams of fatherhood have been grotesquely morphed into terror of future creation, which would be made possible by creating a female monster. He speculates that one of the first results of creating a mate for his monster would be a “race of devils…propagated upon the earth” who would make the “very existence of man…full of terror” (138).
“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies while still alive.” This quote by 2pac relates to the tragedy of Julius Caesar. Caesar had so much potential and did many things for Rome. Caesar was murdered for the sole fact that others were afraid of a tyrant running Rome.
The story goes on, how the white European settlers and religious missionaries were going to Africa to help with the AIDS epidemic. These white people were Pentecostal and spoke in strange tongues. The white people were on religious missions and often taking the Africans blood and spreading even more viral epidemics in Africa. The people of Malawi believed that these foreigners were actually harvesting their blood and were not able to survive in Africa without the blood of the people. In the article “When the Vampires Come for You: A True Story of Ordinary Horror” Adam Ashforth examines historical documents stating “Rumors of bloodsucking that periodically swept through east and south- central Africa, from the teens through the 1950s of the last century.
Chris Crutcher, the author of “Angus Bethune”, uses literary devices like character foils, allusions, and situational irony to engage the reader and make his characters come to life. There were many examples of allusions in “Angus Bethune”. I think he did this because he wanted the story to seem like it took place in our world. On page 1 Angus was having a conversation with his Grandfather. He described him as “A silver haired Rolls Royce of a grandfather.”
Biblical allusion is amongst the most common types of allusion. Writers use this type of allusion to endorse emotional reactions from the readers. An avid user of this writing style is Ernest Hemingway. In The Old Man and the Sea, Hemingway alludes to Christianity a number of times, from the injury of the man’s hands to carrying a mast up a hill, one who has studied Christianity would have no trouble making these connections. Furthermore, another author that has included this allusion in their writing is F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Hutchinson uses these two allusions: King John and Columbus. Both allusions illustrate the growth of the tree. The first allusion is King John. In the passage, it states that “King John must have been signing a certain document on the island of Runnymede around the time when a seed sprouted on an unknown continent and a tiny sprig of the green thrust itself up, among many others, from the floor of the jungle” (Hutchinson, line 10-12). In the phrase, this “certain document” is known as the magna carta, which was established in the year 1215.
In Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta there are not only many allusions from various cultural origins given but the graphic novel can even be described as cultural pastiche (cf. Keller 4). These allusions are not limited to textual references (cf. Keller 7) and create intertextuality “which argues that other cultural artifacts and processes resemble language insofar as they refer only to other cultural products” (Keller 4). Keller also refers to the intertext as the shadow text (cf. Keller 10).
