One last bit of tragedy is invoked as Dido, readying for the fire, calls out for someone to take up the torch in her stead. “Rise from my bones, my avenger—and there will be an avenger!— / So you can hound these Dardan settlers with hot fire and cold steel, / Now, or some day in the future, whenever that strength coalesces.” (4.625-627) While this “avenger” remains unnamed in the poem, it can be read to be Hannibal Barca, leading the charge against Rome during the Punic Wars. The tragedy comes from the fact that, while Hannibal was famed for his power, he was ultimately defeated and the Punic Wars were lost for the Carthaginians. In the end, therefore, it would seem that Dido’s legacy is doomed to fail, though there is some small consolation to be taken in the fact that when Aeneas later descends to the underworld and meets the shade of his lost love, even when she turns from him and finds solace in the arms of her erstwhile partner Sychaeus, he cannot help but feel a last bit of pity for Dido’s “unfair doom” (6.475) as she walks
Encyclopedia of World Biography states “Drake fulfilled the queens expectations and sacked virgo in Spanish Galicia and then sailed to Santo Domingo and Cartagena, capturing and holding both for ransom” (“Drake, Sir Francis”). Between 1585 and 1856 relations with England and Spain grew much worse. Queen Elizabeth unleashed Francis Drake on the Spanish in a series of plundering, raiding, and capturing Spanish ships. Drake also occupied Spanish cities in the North and South America taking treasure, goods, and inflicting heavy damage on the morale of Spain. These acts convinced Spain to invade England.
“ Follow me” he got up on his feet and climbed the wall leading to the window, I followed his path he turned around and told me, “I need you to trust me, I’m going to smash this window and we have to run faster than anything.” I swallowed my nervous feelings and just nodded my head. The little boy smashed the window and pulled himself and I out the window. We hit the ground hard and struggled to get up as pain rushed through my body. “HELP” the boy cries out. The same two men dressed in perfectly fitted suits took the boy away and I was left on the ground crying for help.
What’s so funny?” Asterion barked in his deep threatening tone. I snickered once more and responded with arrogance, “You imbussel, you thought I, Odysseus, the wittiest of them all wouldn't have a brilliant plan.” I instantly then called upon Zeus’s thunderbolt and the sky lit up with lightning and in a bright flash that could be seen for miles and thunderbolt struck the cavern. It was as if something such as the sun, bright and hot was quickly flashed in front of me, blinding me for an instant and brought a large warmth to my body. Many large, sharp, rocks fell from the cave covering the Minotaur as thunder boomed from above. Soot blew everywhere, covering me and getting in my eyes.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson writes, “ But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism” (par 1.) Thomas Jefferson is saying how Britain has abused them relentlessly hoping they could gain complete tyranny over the colonists. How the civilians of the colonies were victims to senseless violence and they had no way to escape from it. Another critical piece of the Declaration of Independence was the clause discussing how the colonists were going to stand up to “the Crown” and fight. The Declaration of Independence reads “We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation...we declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown…” (Par 5.)
Emotion in Motion March 23rd, 1775, this monumental day will forever be marked by Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Virginia Convention”. This speech entailed a rally cry, a call to encourage the colonists to participate in a war to save their home land from Britain and their taxes without representation. During this time period was an enlightenment era based around science, religion was set on a back burner. Britain was cutting of and taxing the colonists an improper amount. The intolerable acts are what sparked the colonist’s resentment towards Britain, with biased taxes and unfair regulations.
Then I realized and then shouted, “ Run for the exit. We then immediately dropped our stuff and ran to the exit. The next thing that happened was dumfounding me instead of the thing retreating back to It’s tomb it chased us. For a creature being over 1,000 years old, he ran fast and he was able to impale Miguel really quickly and poor Miguel muttered his last words “ Why.” Then he died. Now it was just Sarah and me running for the exit to the pyramid then it attacked Sarah and I tried to pull her free but then the mummy targeted me and crept forward with his sword in hand.
Conversely, Oberon makes decisions with unpredictable outcomes and watches as they play out before him. He watches Helena’s humiliation as she confesses her unwanted love for Demetrius,“thou shalt fly him, and he shall seek thy love,” (2.1.246). Out of pity, Oberon tells Puck to put love potion on Demetrius’ eyes, forcing Demetrius to fall in love with Helena- if all goes as planned. He plans for Demetrius to beg for Helena’s love even though Demetrius is in love with Hermia (3.2.87-91). Once again, Oberon’s careless thinking manages to put him in a pickle, leading to more drama.
The earth was convulsing violently, our home was shaking to and throw as if it were about to be ripped out of the ground from its foundation. The time had finally come once again when Mother Nature would take her vengeance and show us who is in charge. The sleeping volcano had awoken and was ready to unleash her chaos on the lavish green countryside which lay below at her feet. Upon the horizon, a murderous flash of slivery lightning flickered across the once pleasant calm blue day sky. Mount Venus had finally erupted and gigantic sheets of fire, wickedly large flames, ash, moult and larva blew out and covered the day sky.
It got dark and the wind came up, but no one came. Stanley was alone and lonely. The only friendly thing he could see was the full moon shining down on him. If he looked closely he could almost see the smiling face of the Man-In-The-Moon looking at him. Finally, got so late and Stanley got so lonely that he decided to seek help.
