Moreover, Helios messages the thunder god to kill those who ate his cattle. It was this decree that made Zeus throw a bolt at Odysseus’ men, killing them all. Odysseus’ prayer shields him from Zeus ' bolt. The cry to Zeus conveys that the hero needs help from the gods and is unable to do everything himself, thus showing Zeus he is learning. This shows progression because in the beginning of the journey Odysseus disregards the gods and gloats about the obstacles he excels, whereas on Helios Island, the hero calls for help knowing he can not surpass famine/every challenge.
Thus as the blackfish killed his brothers for their treachery the townspeople began to fear this being of the sea; however “as the blackfish continued to help the villagers, they realized that the "Killer Whale" was a gift from Natsilane and so they took it for their crest. Natsilane became a legend to their village and some have claimed to have seen him riding the seas on the backs of two great black fish”(Legend of Natsilane). By making the the killer whale the Crest of the town, it illustrates that man values or worships
110-112) This is used to show the audience that the ocean was so dangerous, and how if the men fell in, they would die right away. We have all seen a boiling pot of water, and just hovering your hand over the water feels like a threat. We are still faced with the statistics of death by water to this day, so this is relatable to the audience even now. The use of Homer’s figurative language shows how dangerous the products of the gods are to the humans. The final example of this is found in part 4 of the story.
People lived in fear, if they were at the wrong place at the wrong time, they could be accused, or if they said something to the wrong person, they could’ve been accused. It was no secret; the whole town knew if you were accused of being a witch. Even though the crime of being a witch was a religious one, the goals of the people during the Salem Witch Trials were not. They wanted wealth and power and saw that by accusing others of being witches they could gain both. The people of Salem also were scared, at first of the Devil but quickly of what their fellow man could do to them if they were accused of being a witch.
Fishing is definitely one of the most widely spread sport and is used as a way of life. Many people live off fishing whether it’s catching and selling fish or catching and eating fish. Anyways, the reasons why I think we need to come up with a solution for this crisis is because we have seals and sea lions killing off salmon, ODFW making rules that makes it tougher to catch salmon, and we have dams that are raising the water lever. My first reason why I think we need to solve this problem is because we have seals and sea lions that are eating a bunch of salmon in the Columbia river. And yet the worst part is, they aren’t even native.
While in Moby Dick the whale is portrayed as evil, Chillingworth is the evil one in The Scarlet Letter. Captain Ahab spends his life attempting to rid the world of the whale. When he gets the chance to kill Moby Dick, he uses human blood on the harpoon and chants prayers in latin. The chants baptize the whale to rid it of its sins. Chillingworth in The Scarlet Letter is unsatisfied by Hester’s punishments.
Simon is like Jesus, kind, good, and also sacrificed for a greater cause. Jesus died for spreading the gospel, and Simon dies for trying to tell everyone about the truth of the beast. Simon’s death was very calm, peaceful, and surrounded by nature. “Softly, surrounded by a fringe of inquisitive bright creatures, itself a silver shape beneath the steadfast constellations, Simon 's dead body moved out toward the open sea”(Golding 119). This scene is like Jesus ascending to heaven after he rose from the dead.
This could be a reference to the Christian notion of the Last Judgment. This analysis complements the previous stanza in which the speaker questions his mortality if he, despite dying, one day will “rise from Generation free”. In the final stanza, the speaker parallels the question posed in the first stanza through stating that “The Death of Jesus set me free/Then what have I to do with thee?”. This highlights the speaker’s overarching concern for mortality, religiosity and sin. Once again, he asks what he has to do with Tirzah, representing the mortality that is born from the original sin, if the death of Jesus set him free from this through redeeming mankind.
I tied a hook onto the end of my line and placed a worm on the hook I was so excited. I casted my line out until the pole slipped out of my hands into the lake. I got so mad, so I rushed up to the cabin and told my dad that the pole flew out of my hands. “Well,” he said with a grin on his face. “You have to go fetch it out of the lake.” I was astonished, my own dad told me I have to fetch a pole in a lake that is infested with fish.
So, my dad created this tunnel for the fish to swim through. Too bad, so sad for the fat fish. It died right after the next day. I was kind of sad, but my dad bought another fish for me with a filter because my dad surely gained tiredness cleaning up a whole lot of poop and refiltering the water manually. Everyday the fish had pooped at least 5 times and we needed to replace the sponge every single night.
