This has a correlation to everyone has a murderous intent deep inside. “I, a lapsed pacifist fallen from grace puffed with Darwinism pieties for killing now drew a bead on the little woodchuck’s face.” This shows that the speaker begins to fall from his humane side and the villain side started to come out. The uncontrollable lust for blood could not be stopped and it continued until he killed a plethora of woodchucks. Another example showing the author giving an atmosphere that everyone has a murderous intent deep down was the stanza “O one-two-three the murderer inside me rose up hard, the hawkeye killer came on stage forthwith.” When killing the woodchuck, it was solely to get it out of the garden, but however, when the author killed the mother woodchuck, her intentions became another ballgame. This quote shows that it is important and in correlation with the thesis because the speaker’s true feelings deep down came out.
For example, when a shooting happens whether if it’s at a work place, school, or even at home there is always an outcome that affects everyone around them. Not only does the gunman feel guilty because they killed someone but do they ever thing about their family or the others, the pain they caused them, or even the disappointment from many people wondering why they did it? No, of course not because all the gunman’s thoughts are, get in and get out, but has there ever been a case where the gunman stops and thinks what he is doing, if he wonders what the outcome will be. Because
Just as the water buffalo was tortured to death, most of the men in Alpha Company feel helpless in their situation. Kiley lost his friend and to escape the pain he choses to take it out on the buffalo. This scene also sparks the theme of revenge, and as you read other sections you begin to realize the primitive nature these men have devolved into. In the chapters Friends and Enemies, you see the evolution of emotional trauma through Lee Strunk and Dave Jensen.
He became bitten by remorse.” (“The Sniper”, pg. 3). This is an excerpt from the story that occurs almost immediately after he shoots and kills his enemy. It shows how horrible he feels for his actions and just how quickly his view of war changed. This event also caused him to despise the war, “His teeth chattered, He began to gibber to himself, cursing the war, cursing himself, cursing everybody.”(“The Sniper”, pg.3).
The story lines are so different that you would hardly even think about comparing them; however I did come across one similarity. In the stories three people collectively all go through something life changing. At the beginning they both find themselves in an emotional despair. The two men are always trying to kill each other because that is what their grandfathers did. They find themselves stuck under a tree beside each other.
In Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” demonstrates the personal growth of the dynamic protagonist Louise Mallard, after hearing news of her husband’s death. The third-person narrator telling the story uses deep insight into Mrs. Mallard’s thoughts and emotions as she sorts through her feelings after her sister informs her of her husband’s death. During a Character analysis of Louise Mallard, a reader will understand that the delicate Mrs. Mallard transforms her grief into excitement over her newly discovered freedom that leads to her death. As Mrs. Mallard sorts through her grief she realizes the importance of this freedom and the strength that she will be able to do it alone. The story begins in medias res which forces a reader to hang
What did it matter!” shows that although Mrs. Mallard was married, she had not always loved her husband (8). Mrs. Mallard valued her new freedom over her relationship she had with her husband enough to exclaim “What did it matter!” while she was thinking about her deceased husband and her future life (8). This makes the reader assume that Mrs. Mallard felt as if she was bound to something while her husband was still alive. The bondage is broken since her husband’s “death”, and she can now rejoice over her prolonged freedom. This next quote, “There would be no one to live for during those coming years; she would live for herself.
We think that the form of the “Imaginary” mentioned in Lacan’s psychoanalytic theory of Mrs. Mallards family and friends “imagining” that the devastated new of Mr. Mallard’s death would cause her a heart attack, however later on in the story it was mentioned that she was in fact relieved to know she was a free woman of her marriage. Consequently, the reality of Mrs. Mallard’s thoughts, perceptions and feelings were not the same as others may have assumed or imagined to be. Based on stereotypical standards of society this was misunderstood because a wife should feel an enormous pain for the death of her husband. As the story continues, when Josephine whose Mrs. Mallard’s sister told her about the death of Mr. Mallard, instead of reacting in shock as “many women would’ve (Chopin, The Story of an Hour)” done so, Mrs. Mallard “wept at once, with sudden, wild abandonment, in her sister’s arms. (Chopin, the Story of an Hour)” It would be prudent to believe by the way Mrs. Mallard was crying that indeed she was devastated about her husband’s tragic death.
Afterwards he told her to go get his rusty gun, so he could go hunting. As she walked away, she “murmured something about guns that never shot.”(39). Okonkwo hear this and after retrieving his gun, ran out and shot at her. “He pressed the trigger and there was a loud report accompanied by the wail of his wives and children.”(39). Okonkwo has a very bad anger issue and takes out all his frustration on his family.
Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” seems to explain and analyze how the relationship works in the bondage of marriage. Chopin illustrates that Mrs. Mallard’s emotion towards self assertion is very important for women who live under their husbands’ hands. Not everyone marries to separate. Some get freedom after marriage by simply taking divorce. In India, women fast for the safety and longevity of their husbands.
