Compare how the effects of conflict are presented in ‘Remains’ and one other poem you have studied? ‘Remains’ by Wilfred Owen is a war poem that presents an unnamed conflict where the soldier shoots the looter, but is unsure whether the man was armed or not. If the latter case, the shooting would have been unnecessary and would be thought as an act of murder. This acts as an emotional conflict arising to the soldier due to the situation. Similarly, in ‘Poppies’, the mother suffers from an emotional conflict arising from her yearning for her son as the mother seems to be speaking to the memories of her son.
Societal familial roles in existence now are imposed from birth and, because of this, make it hard to imagine family bonds formed in any other way. In today’s society, there’s little to no difference in how children ‘turn out’ based on if they were raised by an adoptive or biological family. This proves that family is not necessarily a genetic matter; building from this, it is possible that Plato was ahead of his times with his ideas of family. Nonetheless, this does not account for the abolition of the family as a whole or the extensive repercussions that stem from it. An important issue that must be examined in accordance with the abolition of family is the space for friendship.
The overall point of this poem is to convey the cruelty of war and what it accomplishes. The poet expresses the dilemma faced by the photographer in these circumstances through the way he ‘sought approval’ and tried to make ‘the readers eyeballs prick’ so that they would care. Duffy was inspired to write this poem by her friendship with a war photographer. She was especially intrigued by the peculiar challenge faced by these people whose job requires them to record terrible, horrific events without being able to directly help their subjects. The use of a semantic field of death shows the very dark side of conflict and gives an almost savage and sinister edge to the poem to make the act of war all the more evil.
When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships. I realize also the significance of the duty for a soldier because if Druse didn’t kill his father, he can be considered as a criminal. 9. What do you think the author’s messages are concerning “duty”, “family” and “war”? in this short story, the author would like to denounce firstly the war and the conditions of leaving that known soldiers.
The setting of the ethics board encapsulated another common theme of judgment and morality; specifically relating to Frankenstein and his choices on creating the monster, but also in the way that the monster took revenge; leaving the reader to question whether it was right or wrong, much like a decision on an ethics board. Moreover, the natural world and concept of fate were included in my story with the “wind that blew out the candles”, commenting on how fate wished him to stop his research; much like the way fate led to Frankenstein 's illness and death in the novel. Lastly, the big ideas of isolation and passion are included throughout and are the driving force behind my character 's actions, yet my main character’s ambitions make him fallible, which is similar to Frankenstein.
Regardless of the law, Curley’s morals based on vengeance and masculinity drive him to kill Lennie. George has very different morals based on protecting Lennie, his travel companion and friend. His ultimate goal of helping Lennie leads to him ending Lennie’s life in order to prevent his suffering at the hands of Curley. The concept that morality takes precedence over the law in certain cases is manifested through the decision of Curley to hunt Lennie down and the decision of George to end Lennie’s life in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Curley’s decision to hunt Lennie down for the murder of his wife is one circumstance in which a character’s morals are deemed more important than the laws that govern society.
In Elizabethan times black men were considered inhuman, thus, Shakespeare uses animal imagery when describing Othello. The imagery association of animals with black skin is further solidified when Iago tries to scare Brabantio by telling him he will have his “daughter covered with a Barbary horse, (and his) nephews neigh to you.” Shakespeare uses animal imagery to describe Othello; stating that because of his “animal” blood his grandsons will be half horses. The word “neigh” creates an animalistic view of Othello in the audience mind. They view him as beast whose desire to
But from the whole perspective, it is not saying that only human nature motivated him in this process. He not only had the essence of the human mind but also brutish characteristics. In order to avenge himself, he punished his ex-wife by biting off her nose. Also, when he was trying to please king, “To beg, he seizes the king’s stirrup-ring, and kisses his foot and leg”(France). This was really animal-like action; it seemed brutish and inferior.

Groups B and E went at each other in their second debate about whether or not Euphiletus was a guilty man or not for killing Eratosthenes, the man who was sleeping with his wife. Group B’s job was to defend Euphiletus, while Group E on the other hand found him guilty in their arguments. Both logos and pathos were used heavily by both sides of the debate; however, when ethos was used, it was very effective. Group B, the first to debate, started out with Elatos (Elicia). Elatos was a lower middle class man who did not have much ethos.
