It gives off the a tone to the reader that there is war or that there once was war. Levine’s word usage is what gives the poem its unfortunate tone right from the start. Rather than choosing softer language, he starts his poem with words a phrases like “acids of rage” (Levine 3) and
Thus, trapping them from achieving what they want. Both “Thoughts in a Zoo”(“Zoo”)by Countee Cullen and “All the World’s a Stage”(“Stage”) by William Shakespeare show similar perspectives on how stereotypes trapped people through metaphors. By using metaphors,“Zoo” compares a dreary outlook of how zoo animals live to the conditions of living in a stereotypical community. Cullen uses many fierce animals, animals that symbolize many things, to illustrate this dreadful situation, one of them being an eagle. In lines 11-12, Cullen writes “Gaunt eagle whose raw pinions stain the bars/ That prison you, so men cry for the stars!”.
Although there was no consequence of Odysseus hearing the Sirens song he imposed the risk to his crew.

Crowley’s main goal in Good Omens is to halt the incoming apocalypse, constantly growing as a person while doing so. While Equality and Crowley have many contrasting qualities, and few concurrent qualities, only one of each has been debated below.

These emotions are what the demons would use against us; fear, doubt, and our own insecurities are among their chief tools that they use to exploit us. When we allow them to fully use these tools against us, we give them the chance to lead us from God. However, we aren’t defenseless against this onslaught against our faith. The Lord has given us the tools to attack these emotions. If we allow ourselves to believe in the scripture and if we make the choice to consciously believe in His true power and righteousness for no other reason than love, then we can be wholly free from the torment of these
The lion is strong, forceful, and in command of the lands. In the recently independent Congo, there was hope that the government would be like the lion, and force the foreigners out of the nation. However, they failed. This is depicted in the novel through the lion attack on Leah. Tata Ndu describes the approach of the lion as “He came up the steps to explain in his formal French that the tracks of a large lion, a solitary hunting male, had been spotted on the path from the river.
George Orwell is quoting that power is all that Winston needs, but power is not what he has to destroy Big Brother.

Whilst trying to prove Abigail and the other girls were pretending, John confesses, “I have known her [Abigail], sir” (3.110).

In the end, Proctor refuses to give a false confession that would condemn the others who were falsely accused. He decided what he felt was right and refused to stray from it.
Nietzsche, just like Callicles, accuses today’s society of taming the beast, the lion in every Man as mentioned by Dodds: “Callicles’ vivid image of the lion whom society vainly seeks to tame (483e-484a) may fairly be said to haunt the pages of Nietzsche.” Greed and gluttony only seem to be sought by Callicles and a strongly accepted idea by Nietzsche. The animal in us must not be “denatured” but left roaming, free of the moral standards of society, be it Greek or modern. The many, the “hoi polloi”, are blind followers of the morality imposed on them by laws. Socrates defends them to the extreme while Callicles simply regards them as weak who could not get up and get what they truly wanted. To Callicles, the many are lazy citizens with a sort of layer of fat around their desires slowing them down and comforting them.
The lion is fierce but doesn’t have the smarts, while a fox has the smarts but isn 't fierce. A wolf has a little bit of smarts and can be fierce when they are in packs. Machiavelli considered a good prince to be a mixture of a fox and a lion. Also, he wanted a prince that would honors his own words and to be generally praised by others. An example of a prince that would not be ideal in Machiavelli 's eyes would be Adolf Hitler.
