Yeah, I'm not so sure about this. Oh, I thought we decided. I'm sorry. Well I guess we don't have a choice.” (“Into Fat Air”) Peter’s quick decision to begin eating the boy shows his way of living in the moment and making choices that don’t necessarily make sense. Perhaps if the family had kept trying to make it down, they would have and wouldn’t have needed to become cannibals.
People argue about whether or not there was actually a bird physically in his presence, but it makes no difference to my claim; the raven is the narrator’s way of separating his mind and his heart. If he sets his mind aside as something separate from his body, it makes it easier for him to try and forget what his mind keeps telling him. This is a unique method of grieving, most people try to numb what their heart says and focus on their mind, they don’t want the emotional part of grieving, but this character takes an opposite approach. His heart still believes Lenore could come back, he hasn’t accepted the fact that she is gone. The first encounter the narrator has with the raven is positive; “...this ebony bird beguiling [his] sad fancy into smiling…”(Poe 43).
Most of the allusions or metaphors he uses are not pertinent to the plot at all. The central warning is to watch what you say and that some secrets are meant to be kept. The crow was just mindlessly repeating whatever he heard, which is not how one should go through life. You must learn to “hold your tongue.” The crow should be punished because it was not his business to tell Phoebus at all. The central warning could also have to do with these lines about a bird that you want to keep caged, “Freedom is what it sets it heart upon” (Chaucer 479).
Hamlet had no other thoughts in this matter, he chose to act as a crazy mad person and lose his honor and certainty from those who were around him to gain his dad’s name back and so the Old Hamlet kind would rest in peace. Hamlet know he will go through not an easy bath, which by that lead him to hastition in his decision, he still toke on the role of a mad person but not sure what to do, even though he know who did it, Hamlet was not certain that losing his honor which lead to losing the trust of many who were around, including his lover Ophelia. Hamlet goes back and forth, how about my honor, and my mom’s honor that has been lost from the time she thought of marrying, her husband’s brother. The action which have token at this point was i am going to bring her honor so that I could be able to start the revange. The struggle that hamlet went through is all because he knew and understand the meaning of an honorable king and hero been betrayed and killed by the person who spend the life with.
Morgon sees that he is supposed to be greater than he intended. Morgon realizes that even though he wants to get away from his fate or destiny, he might need to face it. Before the harp came into his mind he is thinking he wants to go back and fix Snog, the pig herders,’ roof. Morgon has no intention to continue his journey “… but Snog would die of uselessness if I took his pigs away from him. I’d better go home and fix his roof”(McKillip 57).
He is deluded about his dream; if he has not made it thus far, then how can he achieve what he wants continuing on the same path as before? He says that he wants to ‘raise some vegetables, a couple of chickens,’ which makes the reader wonder if perhaps he would have lived a happier life as a laborer rather than as a salesman. Willy refuses to change his dream, or how he plans to achieve that dream, and he eventually kills himself so as to give Biff the money he needs to start his [Willy’s] dream. Biff, unlike his father, wants to work on a farm, but Willy convinces himself that Biff is going to be a big businessman soon. His deluded dream that he will one day be rich, with children who are settled down and wealthy as well, is the
He does not listen to his father but rather to his heart when he is told that he should not go East. His character is also a static character, which is for the better. Had john changed throughout the story, he may have not ever discovered the truth about the “gods” and maybe would have turned around and changed his mind about traveling
He doesn't understand that war is not a good thing and thinks he could help by using a hatchet. It shows how Phillip is innocent because it tells that he's gonna fight off the Germans with a hatchet which is not logical. This is significant because it shows why, in the future, that Phillip doesn't want to go with his mom but would rather stay around the war with his
He should have been more careful when telling Friar John to deliver the letter. Friar John was innocent and did not recognize the importance of the letter when it wasn’t delivered. This was because of Friar Lawrence’s ignorance to inform him. He should of took matters into his own hands with a job this important. This ignorance also occurs by him with Romeo and Juliet.
Maybe then things could return to how they used to be between [Amir and Hassan]” (Hosseini 92). Amir doesn’t know how to approach him or to appease him in any sympathetic way, so he just uses his attempt as an excuse to be the same way to him that he has always been. He believes that if he gets a small punishment of getting fruit thrown at him, as if taking a few pomegranate shots from Hassan would make amends between them, he will be free from the chains of his culpability. He sees the “punishment [he craves]” as lifting a large weight off of his chest, rather than something to do out of the genuine integrity he should have. It seems as though he does not care as much about Hassan’s benefit as he does about getting himself off the hook from his guilt.
Realistically thinking, a chicken cannot speak English nor understand what other are employed to do, thus this story as being a factor of Animalistic independence. Hoggy Groggy even goes as far as saying that Foxy Loxy should “Put him out of his misery” much like how humans decide to get rid of those who stand in their way other than dealing with the issue head on (Atwood, 71). If Atwood is implying that animals are independent from humans, and that her stories are truly based on the animals and not that of human uniqueness, then she would not feel compelled to have the animals take on the roles of humans in a
John Proctor did not sign the testimony because he wanted to protect his name. In my opinion he was excessively prideful and foolish. If it would have been me, I would have signed the testimony so that I could 've lived. He should have admitted that he was consorting with the devil instead of hanging, he would still be able to be with his family if he would have been smarter about his decisions. John Proctor was being selfish as well when he chose to die instead of sign the testimony.
In the book of mice and men by john steinbeck killing lennie is never justified. killing lennie is not right because of the problems lennie had. not justifying george is basically letting him get away with it which is not right he needs to to be caught. george never should have killed lennie because it 's not like Lennie can handle his problems. So therefore in this situation killing should be justified.
Lennie would do anything George told him don’t get me wrong, but Lennie could not remember what George told him, therefore he would do the opposite which would end up putting them in a worse situation. By Lennie not listening and doing what George said that would surely get them canned. On page 42 Lennie brought the pup into the barn even though George told him not to, “I tol’ you you couldn’t bring that pup in here.” even though this is a small example to what could actually happen when Lennie does not listen. George has the best interest in hand for Lennie so if he knows it’s time to kill Lennie then it’s time. Why would George kill him, if it was not to save him, after all the
I will be explaining the reason why he fled from the second battle and not the first. Henry didn 't run from the first battle because he came across the tattered soldier who had been fighting after he got shot twice but he had not yet complained about his wound. While the battle was going on Henry was thinking about running away. Henry didn 't run because he saw him self as a coward, a lost chicken running in
