The first journal article provides explanations about how the bullying is presented in Margaret Atwood’s Cat’s Eye and how it affects the main character’s to the point she hurt herself to escape from the emotional pain she had to bear. The article shows that the physical and emotional bullying directed towards Elaine comes from the fact that she was different form her other friends, who mostly came from strongly dominant patriarchal families. She dressed and acted differently for her father gave her freedom to do and wear what she wanted. Thus, her supposed-to-be best friends forced her to change because they thought Elaine’s behaviour and appearance were not lady-like. The article explained how this act of phsychological bullying affected
While talking to him, she emphasizes, “How I’m such a fool, talking about / how I’ll never ever find a man like you / you got me / twisted / you must not know ‘bout me / you must not know ‘bout me.” Choosing the word fool instead of idiot or something more offensive allows Beyoncé to further her explanation and clarify why she is being called a fool and how exactly she is not. She also makes the decision to use the word twisted. Denotatively, this word could mean being removed from original shape. Connotatively, twisted is being used as a synonym for bitter.
Where is the programme going if Jacob Moriarty is the true mastermind behind the Holmes/Moriarty war? Well, all of Moffat and Gatiss’ tales have been based on Conan Doyle’s original tales. While it is possible to predict what the next three episodes will be based on, this is a very long process that will take up too much time. However, there is one story that cannot be passed up in the fourth series—“The Valley of Fear.” “The Valley of Fear” is famous for the first appearance of Professor Moriarty.

Similar to Puritan punishments, public ignominy as a consequence for failings of the character is too severe a punishment. These events demonstrate that, as a modern society, America has still not evolved from appointing vigilante-like retribution upon those who seem worthy of such
'Why do you hate Richard so much? The words; the first which had slipped from the Socialite 's lips since he 'd forced onto her knees, and into the bedroom, gave Karl pause. He 'd insulted Richard to taunt Lexi, without realising he 'd made his real hatred was so obvious, but hate the man, he did. However he wouldn 't have been able to articulate the precise reasons, even if he thought that the bitch in front of him deserved a proper answer. Possibly it was because what Karl saw in Richard; a man from a similar non-privileged background, who 'd become successful in his right; and answered to no-one, was something that Karl had always desired, but had been unable to achieve.
By stating this in the beginning of the novel, Nick prompts the audience to keep in mind that his writing is not truly objective, and makes them consider the implications—that what he writes may not always be the truth. With that in mind, upon paying closer attention to Nick’s narration, the way he portrays other characters displays his bias. The one character that receives the majority of his harsh judgement is Tom Buchanan. The first time Nick describes Tom’s physical appearance, his disdain is apparent. He creates the picture of “...two shining arrogant eyes...”(7) and “...a cruel body...”(7) for the reader to imagine.
This is a form of being prejudice because, it’s knowing that someone shouldn’t be treating something as in a group of people a certain way but still treating them like that. They still acted this way and did these things because of the fact that they were prejudice toward them and their ways of life. The life style and extent that of discrimination has changed now since Harper wrote her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. White man 's word was taken over the black man’s’ in a court case no matter what the circumstances were.
“For the horrors of troy when they are the guilty ones they who destroy”(lines 30-33).Why this is relevant in our society is because people be like Eris. Because she blamed the Gods and Goddesses for her doing. Or like the “From Black Ships” “Eris,the goddess of discord, had been left out because wherever she went she brought trouble with her.” (paragraph 2).Where they didn 't invite her only because she is the goddess of discord. And that 's how people act just cause they don 't like someone or they bring a childish fight doesn 't mean they can not come.
The Colossal Difference Within Long Island For centuries, money has been an ever-prominent force in the decisions and actions of humans. In the novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald illuminates the powerful effect of money in creating and changing people in the American society of the 1920’s. Long Island, split into two sections, the East egg, representing old aristocracy, and the West Egg of the newly rich, Fitzgerald depicts the constant struggle between social hierarchies to reach the ideal American dream.

The Great Gatsby has many themes which are still relevant in today’s society. These themes helped us learn more about the time period the novel was set in. In “The Great Gatsby” F.Scott Fitzgerald utilizes characters such as Gatsby, Tom and Jordan, symbols like the green light, the eyes of Dr.T.J. Eckleburg and Gatsby’s parties, and motifs such as illusion vs reality, relationships , and moral decay to illustrate the themes of love, hypocrisy, and carelessness throughout the book.

Everyone passes judgement it's a natural human behavior. At the beginning of the great gatsby, Nick's father gives him some advice, “Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you have had.” Nick has learned to live by this advice ever since. This advice is both a blessing and a curse. Since he doesn't pass judgement on people it makes him easy to talk to, but this changes due to certain instances where he realizes the character’s lack of morals and recklessness.
