This suspense created so early in the writing gives the reader an impression of not knowing what to suspect, and hooks them in better than the highest point of drama in a soap opera. The reader, at this point, knows this isn’t going to be like most other essays they’ve read, they know that this one is never going to cease to be interesting. This is a great thing that Staples has done to make sure te reader pays attention to every part of his argument, not just to get bored halfway through and stop reading. However, an opposite strategy is seen towards the end of the passage when Staples states how he whistles Beethoven and other classical music to attempt to ease tensions. This little bit of hope with a spin of humor helps to give a bit of positivity to his argument and helps to reader to warm up to Staples’ claim a bit more than they already were before.

Why isn 't that abusive? Why is that being so romanticized? Why is Clarke allowed to have feelings of resentment, but Bellamy is expected to bottle them up because Clarke was being nice? Lexa was being nice to Clarke too, and Clarke still violently attacked her. There 's an obvious double standard at play, but people choose to ignore it for the sake of their ships.
Her ability to break rules without being punished gave her sense of invincibility and added to her belief that she was better than other people among the town. Originally when the community found out Emily was interested in Homer, they were happy that she had found someone because she seemed hopeless. However, the happiness did not last long. The townspeople began to feel
Thirdly, he tries to normalize the operation to make her feel like it’s a common thing, no big deal, he tells her she doesn’t “have to be afraid. [he’s] known lots of people that have it done”(53). After all of these comments he made to convince her of his decision he tries to play it off like he wants her to do whatever she feels is right. The final key to manipulation: make it seem like it was her decision when in reality he manipulated her into making this choice all along. Manipulation is unfortunately a common theme in relationships and this short story does an incredible job by shining light on that issue in human relationships.
The boy was unable to make their differences work, and dealing with personal issues as well, decided to walk away. “Her” external conflict is the struggle she goes through with the boy himself. He attracts her with his vibrancy and attention-grabbing abilities, typical qualities of the color red, and she draws him in with her calming persona, a basic characteristic of the color blue. When with him, she has to deal with his instability, and afterwards must eventually come to terms with him leaving her. Red brings images of heat, passion, and anger, so the male saw himself as someone fiery and passionate, and was attracted to the girl because she represented something cool and calm in comparison.

Although she is lying, Adeline says this because she cares about Victor and is a kind person at heart. Yet Adeline 's life could be described as harsh and problematic, she made the best of it and cherished every good moment. Only after she endured all the highs and lows of life did she truly understand that “you can vanquish the demons only when you yourself are convinced of your own worth.” Her memoir will continue to teach many great life lessons throughout time and will always
Hamlet only claims madness because it allows him to say and perform actions he otherwise would be prohibited from, while keeping people from taking his actions seriously. This seems to be part of his initial plan that is first mentioned when he asks Horatio and Marcellus not to make any remarks in relation to his “antic disposition (1.5.192).” Hamlet’s madness allows him to talk to Claudius, Gertrude, Ophelia, and Polonius in a manner unsuitable for a prince. He is often disrespectful and insulting in his remarks. Although his acting backfires during his speech to Gertrude, Hamlet is able to severely criticize her for her actions because she thinks he is insane. During the play he also makes many sexual
In describing Iago, the word honest is used to highlight the contradiction between the idea of an honest man and his actions. Iago used claims of love and honesty as motivations for his actions yet his actions are motivated by other goals. Also, because all of the characters believe in Iago’s honesty, it alienates the audience in their knowledge of Iago’s true intentions and therefore magnifies the dramatic irony for the audience. The use of the word honest in addition to questioning words such as yet and maybe demonstrates how quickly Desdemona’s reputation changes with just a whisper of dishonesty. This highlights the dramatic irony because the audience knows of Desdemona’s faithfulness yet they are powerless in stopping Iago’s plan.
Hester clearly fits into Edward 's description of an ideal Puritan woman. In his essay, he writes, “Is most just and conscientious in all her actions; and you could not persuade her to do anything wrong or sinful.”(Edwards). As stated by Edwards, an ideal Puritan woman should be consistently selfless and kind, not just pretending to at certain times. Also, a kind spirit should not be easily influenced by surrounding negativity. Hester does indeed, possesses these two qualities.
This makes them vulnerable enough to fall for each other. Otherwise, they may not have fallen for each other. The reader can really see the emotion Nick has for Jordan when he says, “I was flattered that she wanted to speak with me, because of all the older girls I admired her the most” (pg. 75) This shows that Jordan is a real person and she has emotions that are barely shown because of the point of view of the
This is important because she will not let anything stop her from getting whatever she wants. The description states that Queen Melissa is “determined to succeed at whatever cost- even the lives of others.” These are perfect examples of a strong leader. If the kingdom needs her to solve a dispute between two nations/citizens, the skills that she acquires would help her make the correct decisions and strive for excellence. Although it is bad that Queen Melissa would go that far to achieve what she wants, her followers are still successful. Using the method of fear to get her followers to agree with her is not a good method, but it gets the job done.
In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants. This relates to me because I think sometimes we get so frustrated with people that we don 't even think about talking it out, but really, it would help us resolve our problems more effectively if we communicated with each other. I definitely recommend The Outsiders to anyone who wants an action-packed book that teaches a
Nova wants to be a detective someday, which sort of fits perfectly with the situation she is thrown into. She is smart, fierce, vulnerable, and thick skinned all at the same time. I actually really liked her even though I had a hard time getting into her head at first. When you have such a developed character, like Nova, the little things that would normally bother me had absolutely no effect. Sure, I still got annoyed with her sometimes, but it no was nowhere near the scale of making me want to quit the book like some others have before There were so many great characters all packed into this one story, I think Kelly deserves some serious acknowledgement for that
