Proctor’s case is ultimately not believed by the court because Elizabeth did not tell the truth, therefore he will pay the consequences of his actions according to the court. The morning before his conviction, he speaks to his wife Abigail and confesses by saying “I cannot mount gibbet like a saint, it is fraud, My Honesty is broke, Elizabeth, I am no good man, nothing's spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before.” (Miller 126). By this quotation in the text the reader is able to tell that Proctor, who knows is going to die, expresses his disappointment in himself and asks Elizabeth for forgiveness for his crime of adultery. This in turn shows the sporadic change of proctors situation.
John Proctor’s weakness is how he contradicts himself. He constantly wavers between either strengths and weaknesses. “My honesty is broke, Elizabeth, I am no good man” (1269). In the very beginning of the play, he scolds Marry Warren for not doing her job. He also shows strength when he repelled Abigail: “ Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time.
In Chapters 1 and 2 Nick states “Only Gatsby, the man who gives his name to this book, … represented everything for which I have an unaffected scorn.” 2. In chapters 7 and 8, Tom learns about the affair between Daisy and Gatsby. Nick points out the irony of losing both women in his
This quote indicates that Abigail Williams is a selfish antagonist because she is lying about something that is clearly noticeable. Some people may argue that Abigail isn’t the only one to blame, as in there are many others to blame for the loss of many lives. Mary Warren also played a
Chicago was seen by outsiders as a land of opportunity the same way our founding fathers saw America as the land of new beginnings. Individuals all across the nation spoke of Chicago as having a “spirit” of it own and “tangible force” that was similar to the American dream (Larson 16). As people spoke so highly of Chicago and its technology, it still did not escape the criticism from other states about how the city would not be able to handle organizing a World’s fair. When the grounds of the World’s Fair were ere being prepared in Jackson Park, Chicago, the soil was too dense to build extravagant buildings, the architects in charge of creating the buildings for the World’s Fair were surprised with all the extra work needed in order for the foundations of the buildings to be sturdy (Larson
Gil’s Fiancé Inez who was being played by Rachel McAdams, cheated on the fiancé with her another married man and did not have any sympathy towards the situation. She was also verbally abusive to Gil, saying, “I'd be thinking brain tumor”. As Tom cheated on his wife with a married woman for so long, did not feel any sympathy towards the situation either, and was verbally abusive. She also lost interest in her spouse as for her old college crush. Like Daisy, she got so fascinated with Gatsby she forgot about Tom when she was with him.
He felt that he was called to be a writer, even though his father did not approve. He published his first book of literary work called An Inland Voyage at the age of twenty-eighty (biography.com Editors). All of his life, he was extremely sickly and ill. He suffered from what was most likely undiagnosed tuberculosis. This caused hemorrhaging lungs (biography.
I wished to annihilate the tedious intervening days.” Making him believe in all of this fantasies about her day and night and the magic of Araby, but later on all of this fantasies are shredded when he arrives late to Araby and he only sees the same kind of people on the streets of his neighborhood, and maybe even worse as the way he was treated with contemptuous inside Araby as observed in this quote, “The tone of her voice was not encouraging; she seemed to have spoken to me out of sense of duty”. Given him a understanding how will be the transition to adulthood, that things don’t always looks at it seems. And when he was covered by darkness while Araby was closing, he realizes that this experience can be one from many to come.

I 've had four jobs in my entire life, and some were better than others. My last job was in the fall of 2010 at a restoration company. They work with insurance companies, who have fire or flood claims, to try and restore all the textiles before they`re considered a total loss. That fall discovered that this was the worst place to work at, it was so bad my stomach turns every time I drive by the building. The pay, the conditions, and the manager made this job unbearable.
The “summer” version of Falmouth that visitors bought into seemed to only invalidate the dark reality I saw as a resident. Even my family and friends, who would visit from out of town, were quick to dismiss my commentary on the sad state of the town I lived with. Homelessness, drug abuse, wealth inequity, lack of a middle class, a depressed, seasonal economy based on the tourism at the expense of minimum wage service employees – as an outsider they could not or did not want to see the things I saw. Surely somehow *I* was wrong about Falmouth, or perhaps just being negative they would say – after all, how could a much desired summer destination have such a dark, dismal underbelly, that was only apparent to some of the
Interestingly, there are many articles that discuss the black plague outbreak; and, while all articles relate to the Black Death (plague outbreak), few bring a different perspective, for example: • The Black Death Decoded explores elements analyzed with findings of a similar strain of Yersinia, as Zeigler alludes to Yersinia throughout his book. • The Black Death discusses the Genome of Yersinia pestis, which relates to the bacteria that causes bubonic plague (a definite point Zeigler argues). Of course, there have been a lot of questions and suspicions about the effects of the Black Death, and its arrival to England as well as the mortality rate, but Zeigler suggest “between a third and half the people must have died” (p. 128) from the
In Corpse Bride, the storyteller uses the archetypes underworld and hero’s journey plot line to show how we as humans need to make and realize our mistakes to grow and mature as people because we learn from those mistakes so that in the future we make less and less mistakes and also know how to fix the ones we make. At the beginning of Corpse Bride, Victor was very clumsy and made many mistakes because he didn’t take the time to really recognize and think about his mistakes. When Victor goes over to Victoria’s house he wanders over to the piano instead of following his parents. Victoria’s parents are quite angry when they find Victor and Victoria together.
