“As I fled I reached that very spot where the great king, you say, met his death”. This is dramatic irony because he knew that this was the exact spot that Laius had been killed, and the only reason he knows that is that he was the one who had killed Laius, but at that moment he didn’t know that he was his father. Every word that the oracle had said was starting to come together in Oedipus’s mind and he was starting to get scared of his own life and the actions that he had made. Just like in Oedipus, the Oracle in The Matrix gave Neo information that was also hard to believe, but Unlike the Oracle of Delphi, this Oracle is telling Neo what is to come in the future and that everything that will happen depends on the actions and decisions that he
“The Scarlet Ibis” Paragraph Kaitlyn In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis”, by James Hurst, there are many symbols shown throughout the entirety of the story but, the most prominent one is death.

Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come” - Julius Caesar (Shakespeare 2. 2. 32-37). This is a quote from Julius Caesar on the day he was assassinated.
(Paragraph 13-15). Actively resisting avoids shame, guilt, and the humiliation of being helpless and sitting and watching your people die. On the flip side, others may argue that music, art, paintings, etc. was enough to protest.

I apologized and they forgave me. All of United Americas wanted me to fix the World War Z. World War Z was the worst war of history. It caused famines, storms, explosions, and most drastically death.

Paul and most of his friends died before he could see what the outcome would be-it’s almost as if their entire experience was useless. I felt for Paul, because in the end he explains that even his feelings were nothing: “...all that floods over me are but feelings…” The fact that eventually all the soldiers would be nobodies, and that the war would cause them to “fall into ruin,” made me unhappy.
