When Helen Robinson’s husband is killed and Mr. Ewell lashes out at her on her way to work, she does not speak negatively of him or attack him back. Helen maintains a level of quiet respect that is compassion in its own way. She was not willing to be negative to a person that certainly deserved negativity, but showed respect instead. Overall, the trial is a surprising source of generosity even with the terrible event in
Without irony an author’s story will not be as interesting and will not keep the reader or audience’s attention for too long. Above dramatic irony was very sufficient because the reader knew about John’s affair, although Reverend Hale was unaware. This may have grabbed the reader’s attention more and lead them to suspension as to how or if Hale would find out. In my example of verbal irony, it was used in a form of sarcasm when it almost seems as if the outcome was backwards. For instance the innocents should live while the accused should be the one to die.
In the essay “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” by Mary Ellen Hannibal, readers get to realize just how unjustified this unbalance is. A major point within “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” is that the predators are not always the big problem, but instead a big help, and that they are withering down to a non-existent state. The animal that Hannibal uses as an example is the wolf in Wyoming. I believe whole heartedly with Hannibal in saying that if it was not for the wolves, many ecosystems and the prey would not thrive as much as they do.
“The ghost of wit isn’t well liked but once people got to know him they learned a lot” (Poe 10.) It is a huge tragedy how people cannot look past someone’s disability and get to know them. This story isn’t about killing the King, its all about how its crucial to get to know people even if they are a little different. Back in the day, killing was (unfortunately) very common. Today whenever there is a murder it will make the front page, but back then people would just shrug when they heard the news of a killing.
Ince Candy’s dog was Candy’s best friend, George knew how much pain Candy went through when he had to witness his own dog getting killed by somebody other than himself. George knew that he had to kill Lennie himself. The facts that Curley would have killed Lennie if George didn’t, Lennie’s disability was only a burden, and George had to look out for himself all prove that George was not wrong in euthanizing Lennie. These three reasons justify the actions that George had to take. George was not wrong in killing Lennie in the way that George had only good motives and was only looking out for
Although there are negatives to big game hunting, the benefits heavily outweigh the opposition. A negative to big game hunting is that it can endanger the hunter. Hunters can be attacked by the animals they hunt and can be injured or kill. As the article says in page 4, “many people die each year due to accidents while hunting”. For instance, Hunters are susceptible to being attacked by the quarry when hunting and if there are others nearby, the animal may start attacking the rest of the group in its angered state.
People have to go through a near situation sometimes too. Their wife, kid, husband, mom, dad, or another family member may be in really bad state and isn’t getting better. They may have to pull the plug. Some cases lead to killing a loved one. Killing another is justifiable, but only in few cases, such as assisted suicide, capital punishment, and when George killed Lennie.
In scene 2 Creon figures out that Antigone was the one who buried Polyneices even though she knew she had broken the law. Antigone believes that people would praise her but, because Creon is present, they do not say anything. “I should have praise and honor for what I have done. All these men here would praise me were their lips frozen shut with fear of you... No, they are with me. But they keep their tongues in leash.” (Page 507) When Antigone says this it shows how she will not say that people are mad at her for breaking the law, she will not give in and say she did something wrong.
Pony and Johnny are jumped and Bob is killed This is the most important event of the novel as had this event not happened, most of the conflict in the book would not have happened. Because of this event, Pony and Johnny end up on the run, leading to Johnny’s and later Dally’s death. Pony is almost killed, helping him to eventually understand that there are both good and bad Socs and that they can’t be lumped together just because they are rich and generally the enemy. Though this event only emphasizes the cruelty of the Socs, the aftermath of it helps him realize the humanity of the Socs. Furthermore, the Pony’s near death experience helps Johnny to overcome his fear of the Socs and stand up for himself and those he cares for.
It shows how we react in the face of death but it does not change us. This is because we can die at any moment. The crisis doesn’t change the protagonist and he only comments on how “I didn’t feel any more intimate with the world nine months after that”. This shows how death is always a possibility and we cannot let it affect us too much. The narrator, when he brushes by death, is not
