Topic Sentence: We believe that the way Zeus punished Prometheus and Pandora was very unfair. Zeus is unfair to many people but this instance he was especially unfair. Argument #1: Zeus had a cruel side to him, like many ancient gods, such as when he punished Prometheus for stealing the flames of Olympus and giving them to the mortals, thus giving the mortals ability to evolve and learn. He condemned Prometheus to having him strapped to a rock while a giant eagle ate his liver daily, only for the liver to regrow so as to repeat the torture for all of eternity. We feel it was a very cruel and unusual punishment.

What's The Difference? Difference a point or way in which people or things are not the same. The difference between a story and history are sometimes confused, especially when it comes to a story like “The Crucible”. While there are similarities between the characters, events, and the settings in The Salem Witch trials, and “The Crucible” the differences are evident. Characters are an important part of any play, and even in life.
Oedipus the King and The Odyssey share many similarities. For instance both start out with conflict, In Oedipus the king the conflict emerges as the plague is destroying Thebes, while in The Odyssey the conflict emerges after Odysseus has finished fighting in the war and tries to return home. “I do pity you children. Don’t’ think I’m unaware. I know what need brings you: this sickness ravages all of you.
In Act 5, the tension rests when Hamlet and Claudius are both eliminated. This act of violence also leads to many other acts of violence, including the deaths of Polonius, Ophelia, and Laertes. It puts a lot of pressure on Prince Hamlet, because he feels he must devote his entire life to getting justice for his father. Since Hamlet was the King, it also creates a theme of betrayal that carries itself throughout the play. Betrayal in a tragedy is not uncommon, and it is one of the many reasons that so many acts of violence take place in Hamlet.
We can prove Scout changes and matures through the book by various events that take place. For instance, when Scout said: “Atticus had promised me he would wear me out if he ever heard of me fighting anymore; I was far too old and too big for such childish things, and the sooner I learned to hold in, the better off everybody would be.” (Lee 9.1) In here, not only does Atticus tell Scout to start maturing and worrying about more relevant stuff, but she also listens, understands and takes immediate action on it. She starts thinking about what her father tells her, and realizes that fighting for such immature and irrelevant things is not worth it. There are much bigger problems in life than that. Scout understands that the less she fights, the better off people would be.
5. What was a scene that worried or scared you? What made it that way? There was a time the odysseus when to go see zuse to confront him in order to get the curse that has been placed on him to be removed. This was hard for me to read because i was under the impression that it was zeus that put the curse on him in the fors place and i was thinking that he is going to half to kill zuse if he talks like that to him because if he does talk to him like that then zuse is going to kill him for his insolence or even put a even worse curse on him so i was a little concerned.
This quote shows that many Thebans have died from the plague that the Gods have unleashed. One can also argue that they seem this way due to the fact that they waited till Oedipus had become the king of Thebes to punish him and his parents for attempting to go against his prophecy and in turn, attempting to disobey the word of the Gods. However, their not interrupting with Oedipus’ fate can be correlated to the belief that our fates are pre-determined and irreversible, it may have been impossible for the Gods to interfere even if they wanted to. This shows how powerful the ruling cosmic order of fate was; even the Gods could not act against it. The Gods also give an impression of being easily angered as Oedipus essentially wanted to prevent his horrible fate of killing his father and bedding his mother, which is a reasonable notion but Oedipus still angered the Gods despite his honest
Also, Alexander drank and that made him make poor judgemental calls, which led to more bad stuff. Alexander had ordered that all those who were in sanctuary or even thought about it were to be killed (Document C). This shows that he hurt people, even those who were in the temple to keep safe, were to be killed. He had also set policies saying that his soldiers can’t be married to local woman, and that shouldn’t have been his choice to make, it should have been the people’s choice because that’s what a great king does, he listens to his fellows questions and askings. His thinking was cruel and all the power that he got from conquering cities and not losing any battles made him think that he was the most powerful man in the world, and that led to all the bad judgemental calls that he had made and at some point regretted that he made
These two plays have many differences and many similarities, but they are similar more than they are different. One of the differences between both plays is the theme. The theme in the Glass Café is that the nation will collapse if its people didn’t pay attention to the dangers that threaten it. Even death doesn’t make people aware of what’s going on around them. While the people in the café’ were busy playing their games, a man died in the café, they all satisfied their conscience by saying, "God bless his soul”.
With change coming so rapidly as well as corruption, laws and acts were in desperate need at this time. In terms of need and new creations, money and funding were also in high demand, without it, it’d probably been difficult to begin anything. Without look back and reminiscing old time, Americans tend to look forward and see the beginning of what would then be, a new industrial society. With a large
In the past prideful rulers have caused more destruction and downfall than anything. Having pride may be good, but having to much can be the downfall of man. In the play Antigone, King Creon being overyly prideful ultimately leads to the death of himself emotionally. Creon shows a couple of occasions when he has way to much pride; when Antigone and he sister are condemned to death for trying to give burial rights to their brother, but Creon has them arrested and does not care even though he is related to them. Because of that, it leads to the death of Antigone and also leaves Ismene without a family.
If Mayella would not have lied, her father would have beat, hit and abused her both physically and emotionally. Due to the physical bruises on Mayella, Atticus was able to grasp the idea that she was being hurt and made him question what really happened that night. Some could say she also lied because of what everyone in the town would say. When Mayella was not honest, the community could not understand the real incident, which caused the society to move backwards during this racially tense time period. Similarly, another major character in, To Kill a Mockingbird, was Dolphus Raymond.
