"Button, Button" Write Up The short story, “Button, Button,” by Richard Matheson, is focused around a married couple facing a difficult decision. The couple is given a button delivered by a mysterious man, Mr. Steward, and if they press the button, somewhere, someone they don 't know dies and they receive a payment of $50,000 dollars. For my adaptation of “Button, Button”, I did scene six, an important scene in the short story as Norma pushes the button, and is later informed that Arthur died. She soon realizes his life-insurance policy is $25,000 with double indemnity.

Justine took the blame for a crime she didn’t even commit and wasn’t afraid. “I do not fear to die… I am resigned to the fate awaiting me”(91). Victor shows fear throughout the novel. He first shows fear when his creation of the monster is complete. “Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created, I rushed out out of the room and continued a long time traversing my bedchamber, unable to compose my mind to sleep”(47).
This was a huge problem as he did not have any money to treat her. In the time Constanze was sick, Mozart grew ill himself. He knew he was dying because he had collapsed on his own desk, the same desk he wrote his music on. His final masterpiece which was unfinished was called Requiem. Mozart gave all the required information about Requiem to his student, and told him to finish it after he dies.
Odysseus suffered the consequence of being away from his son, Telemachus, and his wife, Penelope for 20 years. Odysseus was told by Athena and other gods, what to do during his journey. All of them told Odysseus that he couldn’t tell his men because they’d suffer a consequence. Odysseus listened to Athena and the gods because he only thought about himself and didn 't think about what his crew would say or do. When Odysseus and his crew passed by the mainland where the Cyclops lived, they were only going to stay for two days, but then out of curiosity, Odysseus wanted to see what kind of beast the Cyclops was which made them almost die.
Lee conveys several disappointments about the verdict through her characters. For instance, Dill broke down crying (Lee 256), and Jem could not be more shocked and saddened (Lee 287). The death penalty has been debated for many decades. In the 1930s, there were more executions than ever before- 167 average per year or around 1670 executions that decade. As of 2016, there were 31 executions which shows a large change on the use of this punishment.
He bought her a condo in the Lop, which she could have paid for herself. Myself, I pau eight hundred and fifty dollars every month in rent and most months, that about breaks the bank.” (Kubica 208). This is Mia talking about her relationship with her father to Owen/Colin, her kidnapper, and It is clearly stated that Grace is the favourite daughter of James. In the course work, Othello, Iago despises and manipulates just about everyone, even those who help him with his devious plans. Iago hates Othello and this becomes very clear when he says, “I hate the Moor, /And it is thought abroad that ‘twixt my sheets/He’d done my office.” (1.3.379-380).
Dr. Stone did not know of the horrible act he was committing. All he was worried about was rushing to his date with Lady Sannox. After the procedure: “It was a face that he knew.” (Doyle 7), but it was too late. Dr. Stone discovered whose face he had disfigured. He was horrified and knew there was no fixing it.
It is unlikely that all of those schools actually had a problem. Instead, it is more plausible that Holden just cannot fit in. His poor attitude is what gets him expelled. Phoebe tells him, “you don’t like anything that’s happening.” (169) It is then that Holden reveals one his his deepest wishes. He hopes that he can be the “catcher in the rye”.
Soon after Tom Benecke decided to get out the door of the apartment his yellow paper flew out the apartment window.Tom Benecke said “well I have two choices I can follow my dream and get that paper or I can go to the movies with my wife.”Tom Benecke said “I had a few minutes of deciding he had decided to do both of his ideas.”So he started to walk to the theatre and he ran into some trouble he had remembered he had owed some guys some.He owed them 100$ and he only had 150$ on him.

The guys said okay
The author uses a lot of suspense to portray this courage, like the example above. He uses words like “I pressed the logout button” (145) and ends paragraphs in suspenseful ways. One great ending is when Wade is about to see Sorrento and do deals with him, and it ends the entire chapter with the words “and tapped the chat link button.” (133), making us think and assume about what is happening next. This shows suspense in a sense because it turns a tiny action into an almost book-changing one mainly by dropping off at the most exciting moment. This type of suspense also causes the reader to “have to” keep reading.
“I thought of walking in, smacking the first fool I saw, and taking a suspension like a badge. But that was just the voice of my intelligent armor. I was still a dreamer, if repressed, was still cupcakes and comic books at the core.” (116-1117) This line interested me because it shows Coates at a crossroads. We’ve seen him begin to rise up from the outcast that he once was, becoming more confident as he learned. However, I think this is halfway point is important.
They took nothing into consideration when looking for land, and because of the carelessness attribute, Americans did not care they were ripping the native homeland away from the Cherokee Nation.

Burnett felt sad with the Indians, he felt mad with them and most importantly, Burnett understood them. Burnett wants The Trail of Tears to be known to show what happened to his friends.
McCarthyism had a multitude of reasons as to why it turned many Americans against each other after WWII. Within the article, “A Decade of Fear” by Sam Robert, the events leading up to McCarthyism, and events after, are thoroughly explained to showcase the effects on civilization in America. In Robert’s view, “...many Americans were inclined to believe the worst, even without evidence” (9). Joseph McCarthy scared Americans by claiming he knew of 205 Communists working in the State Department after WWII. Later on, he had reported that he only knew of 57 Communists instead of 205, but never publicly released any evidence to back up his claim.
Now because of this, that kid started shipping us. At first, both of us ignored this and continued on with our lives, but he came up with ship names, and that was when all hell broke loose. Both of us told him to shut up, but I was the one who really got pissed. I was in no mood to go through what I went through in elementary. You simply told him to stop and ignored him, even when he drew a heart with both our initials on it.
