Sir Toby tells Sir Andrew of his niece that she has sworn not to marry anyone above her in station, age or wit. He is, ofcourse, not a very reliable source, but if his words are true then Olivia seems to be as determined as any man to marry the one of her choice. This could account for her reluctance to accept the Duke, who is accounted by all to be a good man. Financially independent, she is relatively free to pursue her ends as both her father and brother have died and her uncle is her dependent. It does not take Olivia very long to discard her mourning weeds to pursue Cesario, which shows that this was only a pretext to keep Orsino at bay.
This evidence is saying that if a the father's son had hit him should be cut off because he should respectful to his father and fallow the rules. This is important because, he should had not struck because he should know what to do. Examples of just laws can first be found in the area of Family law. Document C states that ‘’ I cut off my son’’. In this quote,the author says that if the father does not what to give all his money to his son when he is dead because he might not know to take care of it.This quote includes an example of, his father dies he get to keep it and take care of it as long as he lives and if he loses it he get to died or something like that.
Hammurabi claimed that his laws were both just and helpful to a wide range of people, but the majority of the laws don’t support either of his claims. In the instance of many laws, he appears to be very drastic with his consequences. In one of his codes, he says that if a women is caught in adultery with another man, both people must be tied up and thrown into the water (doc C, law 129). The act of binding the two people together and drowning them is a very specific and extreme repercussion for cheating. Another example of Hammurabi’s unnecessary harshness, was the law stating that if a man has broken into another’s house he shall be put to death by piercing him or hanging him in the hole which he made in the house (doc D, law 21).
In Law 195 it states, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” This law seems, as well, too harsh. The son should get a punishment but getting your hands cut off for hitting his father would lead to son being scared. In conclusion, Hammurabi 's code is unjust. The evidence shows that the Personal Injury Laws didn’t protect all people equally, the Property Laws punishments were too harsh, and the Family Laws can cause someone 's death. Most of Hammurabi’s laws are not just to the people or society of Babylon.
Go on raving as long as you’ve a friend to endure you.” Sophocles et al. 223) Haimon is telling his father that if he does this to the women he loves than he will never see his son again which would normally be very emotional for a dad to hear that he won 't ever see his son ever again but not Creon, all he cares about is being fair to his
Hammurabi Hammurabi was a man who became a ruler of people: 1,000,000 people! He ruled a place called Babylonia, for 42 years. A god of justice, named Shamash asked Hammurabi if he would write a code of 282 laws on a stele for him. (BGE) Hammurabi did what he was told to do, and that stele can be found in a museum today. Hammurabi’s code: was it just?
181). Also, when Kemmerich’s mother asks him to swear he is truthful, he secretly thinks “I would swear to anything. But she seems to believe me… I have to tell how it happened, so I invent a story and I almost believe it myself,” (p. 181). He doesn’t seem remorseful about lying to the mother of his close friend, nor has he even tried to appear remorseful about the death of his close friend, not even when talking to said friend’s mother. Had he had a close friend die before the war, it is certain that he would not lie to their mother about how it happened, nor would he not show any emotion, so this interaction displays how his ability to display emotion has been impeded.
Historians may argue that Julius Caesar helped rome to make it better and stronger for the people. While this might be true this is misleading because all of Julius Caesar's good actions like giving people more jobs,but it just covered up his worse actions that hurt rome. Also Julius Caesar was named a awful man throughout history from not persevering in hard situations, hurting not helping rome, and doing things for himself. To begin with Julius Caesar was named a awful man from how he didn’t persevere in hard situations. One way he didn't persevere was when Sulla (the emperor of the time) ordered Julius to divorce Cornelia (his first wife) because she was from the family of Sulla's enemies.
Clerk’s Tale Folk Tale (With elements of religious allegory) Walter, Griselda ‘The Clerk’s Tale” starts out with a king does not wish to marry, but agrees to do so when he is asked to by his council. They wanted him to have an heir. He agrees and marries a lower class woman by the name of Griselda, only if she would do whatever he asked both with grace and happiness. Years later, he decides to test this agreement. He takes away their first child, and she does not get upset.
Some would argue that love conquers all and that the lack of trust should not dissolve a marriage. However, that is not the case in Othello’s marriage and in most marriages worldwide. When their trust was broken, Othello turned against Desdemona and was unable to see her as the person he once married. In the beginning of the play Othello tells Iago Desdemona had became” [his] soul’s joy,” since they met and believes their marriage will last (II.I.200). Even though Othello believe Desdemona would be loyal to him because,” she had eyes and chose [him]” they still hadn’t been married for a long time when their trust was tested (III.III.194).However, when
“Justice consists not in being neutral between right and wrong, but in finding out the right and upholding it, wherever found against the wrong.”(Theodore Roosevelt) To start off let’s talk about Hammurabi, a king not many people knew about. Thanks to clay writing tablets found by archaeologist, we know some things about him. Some things we know about Hammurabi is that he was a king for 42 years! In addition to that he was a king of a city state in Mesopotamia called, Babylon. Something else about Hammurabi is that he took power in 1792 BCE.
Such as growing together as a family and they should not euthanize themselves because of worrying about being a burden to loved ones. Next, he goes over the objections to a duty to die. The objections are “there is a higher duty that always takes precedence over a duty to die,
Hammurabi 2 If you were to break into a person 's house at any time of day, guess what, you would have your head cut off! You then would be buried right where you broke in. Hammurabi’s code of law was very brutal and specific of what will happen if you did something bad. Even though it may seem fair, his laws mostly favored men and the rich. This was pretty effective to stop crime in his kingdom at the time.
He ruled over about 1,000,000 people, consisting mostly of farmers. Located in what is now central Iraq, people lived with strict laws created by Hammurabi and their god of justice, Shamash, in Hammurabi’s 38th year of his ruling. He had 282 laws that were carved onto a stele, a large stone, which he
