Response to “A Race of Sound” by Gregory Corso Reading this poem made me think of my brother, Milo. I can easily connect this poem to him because he is very loud, especially when he doesn’t get what he wants. Recently, my brother keeps on going in my room, I scream at him and tell my parents that he’s in my room and they told him to get out or they would take his tablet away. Eventually, he got out of my room but not before his tablet got taken away.
Within Edward Scissorhands, when other characters meet Edward, they identify him as a freak of nature, as someone who might hurt them. When Kim was coming back home, she encountered Edward for the very first time. Numerous shot-reverse-shots were used to revealed the terror in her eyes. As she screamed at the very top of her lungs, she had woken up the entire house. Peg had to calm her down to tell her that Edward was someone not to fear, despite his gargantuan scissors for hands.
Despite their endeavors to escape their bondage, the women behind the bars could not escape because the men found alternative tactics to keep them in confinement. The bars strangle and cut off the heads of the women that climb out of the pattern, “it turns them upside down and makes their eyes white!” resonating to an envision of a crazy woman. The narrator herself is a great example of how effective men were at establishing alternative tactics like this. The narrator was classified as having hysterical tendencies, like most women of the nineteenth century, were when they complained of pain, anxiety, fatigue, or depression, as a source of suppressing their agency through prescribed isolation and prohibited writing.
Another quote from the text to show that character is linked to theme is, “With these materials and with the aid of my trowel, I began vigorously to wall up the entrance of the niche” (pg. 165). What happened in this quote is, Montresor has had enough of Fortunato’s nonsense and walls him up! This quote proves my thesis because he loses control over his anger. In conclusion, the characters in the short story The Cask of Amontillado shows that anger leads to bad
They should’ve known better...” This shows the fear the men have after being caught by Nurse Ratched. They are scared by her and fear her actions. Another example of this is on pages 4 and 5, is “She’s going to tear the black bastards limb from limb, she’s so furious. She’s swelling up, swells till her back’s splitting out the white uniform
“They surged about her, caught her up & bore her, protesting, and then pleading… back into a tunnel, a room, a closet, where they slammed & locked the door & saw it tremble from her beating & throwing herself against it… Then smiling they turned and went out & back down the tunnel, just as the teacher arrived.” (pg. 3) They don’t care what she says & they do it behind the teachers back. Therefore, she can’t do anything about it because she doesn’t know about it. The suspense at this point is tremendous.
I was holding onto the door knob. I pleaded to him to please let me go as there were children present and were witnessing such debacle. My eldest son step forward and and told him to stop aggravating me my son was pushing him outside the home when he uttered that he would kill me. As this conundrum was happening his sister appeared and told me to lock the doors to the house and lock myself in a room with my children. She had informed that he was very angry and grabbed a
In the “Diary of Anne Frank” Anne says “I’m trying. Really I am. Every night I think back over all of the things I did that day that were wrong… lie putting the wet mop in Mr. Dussel’s bed… and this thing now with Mother, I say to myself, that was wrong.
Mary Warren was brought into the Proctor household during Elizabeth's pregnancy where she became very sick. She has been a big help to the family but because of the recent claims of witchcraft has become an official of the court.

While away Mary was supposed to be home caring for the children and knew that when she got home she would be punished. In hopes of making things better when she got home she began sewing a poppet for Elizabeth.
She cleaned the machine and started running it as fast as she could and made sure the job was completed by the end of the day. Topps was satisfied with her productivity and thanked her for delivering the job on time. The next day she came in at the same hour and got a phone call. She answered and her boss assured her he was safe but he would have to retire.
Humans are very susceptible to qualities inside themselves. For example, a personality disorder is defined as “patterns of inflexible traits that disrupt social life or work and may distress the affected individual” (Rathus, 2010, p. 525). These traits may be highlighted in a person’s life and are a part of their personality. In addition, personality disorders effect your thoughts and behaviors. The academy award winning film Mommie Dearest, directed by Frank Perry, accurately portrays how the aspects of obsessive-compulsive disorder and histrionic personality disorders can affect someone’s everyday life.
Most books have either portrayed Hernán Cortés as either a brave conquistador hero who helped transform Mexico for Spanish use, or as a cruel racist who helped instill a genocide upon millions of Mexican natives. The truth, however, can be a lot less black or white. In the book Victors and Vanquished: Spanish and Nahua Views of the Conquest of Mexico, we see that the moral nature of Cortés is more grey than most think. Cortés, in his conquest of Mexico, has performed good and bad deeds towards his own men and towards the Nahua people. To begin with the analysis of Cortés’s actions, we can look at the various good deeds he exhibited during his time in Mexico.
Hernan Cortes, a Spanish conquistador born in 1485 in Medellin, Spain. In his early life, Cortes studied Law. Unfortunately, Cortes withdrew from Law School. In lieu, Cortes wanted to be a part of the world of exploring. He first set off with Valasquez to conquer Cuba which was successful.
Individuals tend to think of a “hero” as a kind person, someone who saves the entire population from a dreadful misery. Hernan Cortes, a Spanish soldier and conquistador, is a hero (in the minds of some) for acting courageously and enhancing Spain’s economy with the gold taken from the Aztecs. But as glorious as he may seem, he also killed many Mexican Natives and Aztecs and caused many unnecessary battles and disruptions for them. Aside from disease, Cortes also majorly disrupted the Aztec culture and religion by converting many to Catholicism. Depending on what facts were taken into consideration throughout his life, he could be seen as a hero, or a villain.
