While some people 's ignorance brought upon pain and suffering, it also brought out the thoughtfulness and bravery of others. The Titanic is said to have been brought down by a huge iceberg that struck the hull of the ship, yet what if it was really the people commanding the boat that ended its life? She left the harbor on her maiden voyage to New York on April 10,1912. A distance into the trip the Titanic started receiving warning about ice formations ahead in their course, yet they seemed to only ignore them with ignorance. Like in these lines from ‘’R.M.S.
In Reagan’s eulogy Thatcher uses pathos to unite herself with the audience, through the mutual feelings of grief and sorrow over losing a friend. In the opening lines of the eulogy Thatcher creates pathos by using diction. In lines one and two Thatcher said that a “Great President… Great American… Great man….” has died. Her choice of using the word great instead of good or any other adjective, effects the audience by showing what kind of man Reagan was. Since death is a universally known topic, it is safe to say that everybody has experienced the pain of losing a great person to death.
In 1983, David Rytman Slavitt wrote the poem “Titanic.” Slavitt, a writer, poet and author, wrote this poem about 71 years after the great ship sank. The first stanza of the poem opens by stating that everybody loved the Titanic, and that anyone would purchase a ticket for that crossing, had it been available. Stanza 2 then adds that we all die, but to die with other people in luxury is much more desirable. The poem goes on to say how many mourn the loss of the people who died on the Titanic and that people would be reminded of their death throughout the decades to come. The poem concludes by stating that their deaths weren’t so bad after all, for the water was cold and anesthetic, and how everyone dies, but not all die in luxury.
Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of The Lusitania, is a narrative non-fiction thriller written by Eric Larson, describing the final, and disastrous voyage of the British ocean liner, the Lusitania. Similarly to the Titanic, the Lusitania was thought to be unsinkable, and those who voyaged within it had extreme confidence in the ship that eventually contributed to its downfall. The sheer size of the ship, and its speed and capability to exterminate smaller vessels at ease immediately dispelled any thought of it being a target of war. The story takes place in the early 1900 's, when the war between Britain and Germany during World War 1 had just begun. There was an agreement that non-military ships could not be targeted by either side.
Europeans generally welcomed Wilson 's points but his main Allied colleagues were skeptical of Wilson 's idealism. Germany, who felt betrayed, denounced the treaty as “morally invalid.” •Did The benefits of punishing germany after the war outweigh the drawbacks? •Punishing Germany was a not a good idea and does not outweigh the drawbacks. after the end of the war, the central powers suffered much more casualities. Of the 60 million European soldiers who were mobilized from 1914 – 1918, 8 million were killed, 7 million were permanently disabled, and 15 million were seriously injured.
British author, Tim Lott, who is a prolific travel journalist, wrote the article, We’ll all die one day. Isn’t it time we got used to the idea?, which asserts, “But death is part of life – there could be no meaningful life without it.” Lott makes an excellent point, life wouldn’t be life without death. The world would become overpopulated, and generations would not be seen as how they are today if no one passed away. On a different note, the poem Sailing to Byzantium, deals with an old man who is about to pass away. The
Death is a running theme throughout the story of Frankenstein, many of the characters die in one way or another before the story is over. Those who are not killed either wish to do die like the Creature or are in danger of dying soon like Walton, who has been in the Arctic for months and whose crew has lost faith in him. Ironically, Victor states early on in the novel "Wealth was an inferior object; but what glory would attend the discovery, if I could banish disease from the human frame, and render man invulnerable to any but a violent death! "(42) His actions result in the violent deaths of his family members and friends by the Creature. "Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world...
Titanic, the “unsinkable ship” sank in 1912, leaving centuries worth of lasting impressions and unanswered questions on the sinking of this great ship. In both Exploring the Titanic by Robert D Ballard and Voices From the Disaster by Deborah Hopkinson the story of the Titanic is shared from two different styles of writing, textbook (by Robert D Ballard), and nonfiction narrative (by Deborah Hopkinson). Mr. Robert D Ballard wrote his book (textbook) for the purpose of citing factual information so the readers can understand and retain the information from his book. While Ms. Deborah Hopkinson wrote her book (nonfiction narrative) for the purpose of shedding light on the stories behind the survivor’s fight to survive. This way the readers relate and admire the stories of the survivors also leading them to be able to retain most of the information from Ms. Deborah Hopkinson’s book.
The First World War ended on November 11th, 1918 when the German government signed an armistice treaty with the Allied powers, leaving 9 million soldiers dead and 21 million wounded. This has lead World War I to be commonly known as the “war to end all wars”. There several key reasons as to why the Central Powers lost the war. Generally, it was a mixture of the Central Powers weakness and the Allied power’s strength. However, more specifically, the Central Powers had weak and unreliable Allies such as Austro - Hungary and the Ottoman Empire which both collapsed, leaving Germany isolated.
Thousands of people, around 2,200 people to be exact, bought tickets to the Titanic and they either bought first class if they were rich, middle class if they saved up or they just had a good amount of money, or third class which were mostly poor immigrants trying to start a good life in America or Canada. Everyone called the Titanic “unsinkable” but anything’s possible so people should just call it the Titanic instead of “unsinkable” because you never know what’s gonna happen. If people knew that the ship was sinkable maybe they would have a better chance of surviving. On page 22 it says, “Phillips began to send the morse code ‘CQD’ distress call, flashing away and joking as he did it. After all, they knew the ship was ‘unsinkable’.” Phillips was joking as he sent distress calls because he thought it was unsinkable maybe if he, and many others, was serious the ship might’ve been able to
