In the movie The Lorax, the environments in Thneedville and outside have a big impact on the people. Once a place filled with fresh air, clean water and trees is now a place of despair for the environment. After one man invents a product that ultimately results in destroying the environment around him, the people are forced to buy clean air. When Ted, a love struck boy, hears that the girl of his dreams, Audrey, would do anything to have a tree, he begins his search for some information on what happened to them all. The only person who can tell him is the Once-ler, the man who cut down every tree, and gives him the last seed to plant.
Hamlet reminds the audience how bad a state Denmark is in and that he believes that it is his destiny to cure it. Hamlet describes the current chemistry of Denmark as “an unweeded garden/ That grows to seed; things rank and gross in nature/ Possess it merely.” (1.2.139-141). Hamlet is most upset about what his kingdom has become, “an unweeded garden,” but the word “unweeded” implies that it is possible to save the garden because weeds can be uprooted. The uprooting that Hamlet is referring to is unclear to him at this time, since he has not spoken to his father, but he does know that his uncle and his friends are evil and want all the power to themselves. Hamlet remembers his father and mother as being happy with one another and cannot fathom how things turned out the way they did.
Scrooge didn’t believe in the Christmas Spirit, all he thought was that Christmas was just of load of humbug! (Dickens, 6) Scrooge also hates happiness and generosity until a trio of Christmas spirits shows him the error of his ways. (Dickens, 9) At the beginning, Ebenezer is portrayed as a stingy and selfish man who expresses dislike for the Christmas Spirit. But just as the end of winter gets closer, Scrooge’s stinginess and cold heart sees a revival of goodwill that has been apart for so many years. Although Scrooge is a fictional character, nobody should ever be as greedy and selfish as him.
So by being paranoid a person might ruin his connections with his friends or family. As Creon was throwing his fit of stubbornness his son tried reasoning with him. His son bringing in nature claims “ in flood-time you can see how some trees bend,/ And because they bend, even their twigs are safe,/ While stubborn trees are torn up roots and all”( Sophocles 571-573). This is easily applicable to everyone.Due to his stubbornness, that was created by his paranoia, Creon loses all positive connections in the world, making him wish death upon himself. Just as a normal person who can not live their life do to paranoia becomes
“Brother” is pretty cruel and mean so I hold him accountable for the death of Doodle (William Armstrong). Some of these reasons why I think so is that he abandoned him in the forest, he didn’t care if he was leaving him behind, and he wasn’t going to help him home at all. To start it all off his “Brother” left his only sibling in the forest. On page 6 paragraph 1 or 2 is says “After we had drifted a long way, I put the oars in place and made Doodle row back against the tide.” The reason I think this is because he was making Doodle row both of them against the tide and he was only 5 at the time, and making a 5 year old row against the tide for you is just cruel. Aswell on page 6 paragraph 4 or 5 it tells us this “I hadn’t run too far before I became tired, and
It helps if you visualise yourself sitting next to him as your reading, listening as he tells you about his story. There is something noteworthy about his expressionism in writing.There is something unique in how he can create a picture in one's mind while reading. His style is very descriptive and the reader can tell that Simic has been well educated and familiarized with his vocabulary. Even though the wording and structure is complex, it has an aspect of simplicity. All in all it is impressive, thought-provoking, wonderful, and positive.
His business practices also reflected this level of lack of concern for other people that later transformed into regret and attempts at redressing his wrongs. First-hand observers of his factories, specifically Hamlin Garland, said the noises produced by the machines were as loud and frightening as a lion’s roar and that the entire factory was filled with an awful stench, furthermore, the workers were likened to men going to war for the sake of their wives and children while only receiving a mere 14 cents an hour. Originally when the union rejected Carnegie’s attempt at lowering of wages, Carnegie greeted them sympathetically and amacibly receiving exactly what he wanted, the unions were silenced and he was viewed as a benevolent employer. Making attempts to be remembered as this person, he saw it necessary to use his money for the public good which would later be outlined in his book, the Gospel of Wealth. The preservation of this public image was successful, but behind the scenes, Carnegie was less sympathetic towards his employees and their
When Dimmesdale is walking to the scaffold a man stops him urging him not to “blacken” his “fame”. This old man embodies the hypocrisy so deeply embedded in the minds of the Puritans that when Hester committed the sin she was damned for life but since he is a minster there is no need for punishment. Dimmesdale always needing support, begs Hester to “support” him up on “yonder scaffold”. Hester had to stand up on the scaffold with nothing but a red letter marking her chest, an illegitimate baby, and the judgment of the townspeople to keep her company but Dimmesdale is now asking for support after doing nothing to help her so many years before. By putting Dimmesdale in Hester’s position the hypocrisy of the Puritans can no longer be

My favorite part of the book was that Hole in my life is a true story which makes the farfetched events plenty more exciting. I enjoyed the ending because he finally got what he wanted, to write. The ending gave a sense of fulfilment and it was very satisfying. My favorite part would be when he was in the drug industry, the entire time he was on edge, the story became very suspenseful and edgy. I would recommend this book to everyone, The book is exciting and a real page turner to say the least.
This story had just the right amount of grit and realism to keep me entertained and wanting to turn to see what happens on the next page. I also really enjoyed the touch of paranormal added to the story, it was a twice that I thought really added to the tale. Frederick Foxx’s writing style is smooth and consistent throughout the book. I
