We were liars is a story about the ideals we are all supposed to aspire to, simply because of the way our society defines success; as being forceful, reckless, hasty and bold. The dauntless ideal Cadence falls prey for. In my opinion the book is trying to shed light on the insidious backside of our idea of heroism, and the too often gruesome consequences it might bring. That it more frequently than not results in the unnecessary suffering of others. Cady’s cousin Mirren on the other hand, had a very different life motto: ”Always be kinder than you have to”.
He showed the aspects of “he is dependent upon endless affirmation from others in the form of approval, flattery…the more desperately he clings to the belief that he is his idealized image, the more violent the hatred” (Our Inner Conflicts p. 110~p. 111). Also he showed his tendency of “He must in his own mind feel superior in some way – regardless of any particular drive to excel” (Our Inner Conflicts p. 101). Some of the actual strengths and accomplishments that Sooyang had was not able to achieved. By eliminating his surrounding people that opposes to him, he was written as a cruel king of Chosun dynasty.
Nietzsche’s exposition of The Will to Power and Superman Substantiate that a man should strive for the higher self and find the essence of existence without merging it with moral values. The protagonists of Crime and Punishment (1866) and The White Tiger (2008) represent Nietzsche’s Ubermensch. The most striking similarity between Raskolnikov and Balram is their idea of the extraordinary man, the over human. Both committed crime as a means towards becoming Superman. Both characters’ ‘sense of self’ begs comparison between them.
The darkness the bad is allowed to grow and lash out unattended and unblocked. Good, however, is shown to overcome evil, by the actions and events taken and that had occurred within the novel. The "evil", Mr. Hyde, being born of good, the evil deeds only present while the novel 's "good," Dr. Jekyll is not, and the novel’s end, where Dr. Jekyll deciding to not let his darker half kill any longer and makes a decisive and sacrificial decision. All of these point to this concept that good prevails and triumphs evil no matter the cost and no matter the strength or power of evil whether it be an overwhelming gap or a tiny little crack. Dr. Jekyll was a good man and a good surgeon, doctor, and scientist, but he was not without his own vices and set of foreboding dark impulses.
God’s Justice in Inferno One of the most significant themes, if not the most significant theme within Dante’s Inferno is the perfection of God’s divine justice. Dante expressees divine justice within Inferno in a multitude of ways, with one of the the most prominent examples being the overall structure of Hell and how the punishment for the sinners (perfectly) reflects upon the sin. To the modern reader, Hell likely seems more like an act of cruelty than divine justice, much less a product of God’s love. At first,the torments that the sinners are subjected to seems extreme and grotesque. But, as the poem continues to progress, it becomes quite clear the there is a perfect balance within God’s justice as the degree of each sinner’s punishment perfectly reflects upon the gravity of the sin.
This idea is reflected in “Free Will and Determination,” as it illustrates that “in God 's mind everything is determined in advance,” and that “the active believer is wholly ignorant of this determination and therefore enjoys fully the freedom to choose” (9) to imply that the vast freedom of humanity generate implications that alter the future. Despite the constraints of feudalism and religion, my sermon implies that peasants have the choice whether to listen to my warning or not. While my warning promises the faithful guidance and solidarity, those who choose the wrong decision are punished by the dragon. As “the existence of evil in face of the omnipotence of God is justified in terms of the supremacy of humankind 's essential freedom to adopt its own goals and to choose its own course of action,” (“Free Will and Determination” 10) non-believers are willing to challenge fate and destiny no matter what the prophecy foretells. Since English peasants are the targeted audience, I allude to a feudalist and religious society to urge them to make careful
Moreover, he vows to bring Laius’ killer to justice, and that is exactly what he does. Pursuing punishment despite the fact that it is self-inflicted displays a tremendous amount of nobility. Through these situations, Oedipus is more than a king with an unfortunate fate, but he represents mankind itself. And so the strength that allowed him to be king in the first place, but also acted as his flaw, comes full circle to redemption. These ironic effects are attained through the quintessential elements of religion, the tragic hero archetype, and diction.
His dialect with both examples of humor exhibits that Stein is impartial to the feelings of either parties and is simplify stating facts. Although some may disagree, the humorous aspect makes the article enjoyable and pushes the reader even further to agree with Stein’s argument. In addition to research and personal experience, Stein also uses humor to create his successful argument on millennials. The unreliable hateful statements that many have said about millennials has definitely been countered by Joel Stein’s article, “The New Greatest Generation. Why Millennials Will Save Us All.” Throughout his article, Stein defends millennials and their new way of life against some of the older closedminded generations.
Apollo, knowing that he is a god, is confident that he will win and Friend, knowing that had the ability to manipulate, is confident as well. At the end, even though both Satyr and Connie put up a fight, they both eventually lose the battle and their life. Oates story, “Where are you going, Where have you been?” is a story filled with various different forms of symbols and ideas that an ordinary reader would not realize they represent more than just what they appear to be. Oates incorporates several literary elements that can be used to take different critical approaches. With that stated, the Archetypes approach was the most appealing to me because it exposes the reader to a different perspective to the short story that she
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde deals with the awareness of the duplicity of the life, that evil resides within the human. Also, the religion that is dualistic admits not only that the universe comprises good and evil, or light and darkness, but also that though these are eternally opposed they are coeternal, coexistent, and equipotent. Evil has to exist in order to the goodness exist because the appearance related fundamentally to the contrast. These two forces are at constant war and only at the end will good finally vanquish evil. Finally, we have to accept the fact that every human on earth contains both sides evil and the good one, also every community as a whole, some of it seek for self-savage desires and the others seek developed society.
