The differences between the groups cause great conflict during the story. In the Outsiders, it states “ Not like the Socs, who jump greasers and wreck houses and throw beer blasts for kicks” (Hinton 3). The given quote shows how the Socs deal with the differences between them and the the Greasers. The Socs, believing they are better, deal with their differences by attacking the Greasers. Similarly, the Savages deal with their differences by defying the rules of the conch and defying ralph’s rules.
Aaron however, has a dark attitude every time he speaks. Even though Cassius does plot against Caesar, he does it for political reasons only, while Aaron obviously hates the world and tells Luscious that he enjoyed doing all the evil things he has done and would do it ten thousand more times. They don’t exactly show the same attitude because these characters are not part of the same play. Titus Andronicus is a revenge tragedy and Julius Caesar is a political play, therefore Cassius is a politician who does anything in his power to protect Rome and its citizens. This is also why Aaron does evil things to Rome; he had a dark tone every time he spoke because he needs to get revenge.
However, the plan failed because some of the crew members opened the bag, since they were curious because the inside of the bag was kept as a secret to them, which clearly demonstrates that Odysseus had supernatural conflict. As the results, Poseidon’s power, the storm winds blew Odysseus and the crew further away from their destination. The third time Odysseus shows that he had supernatural conflict is in the cyclops adventure, and it was caused by Odysseus and his crew, who tricked the cyclops many times. In the Odyssey, it states that Odysseus taunts at Polyphemus, and reveals his real name after Odysseus injured Polyphemus, and tricked him, which enraged him. After Polyphemus about Odysseus, he requested from his father, Poseidon, the god of sea, to curse Odysseus, and ask for revenge on Odysseus and his crew.
Consequently, according to the book of the Epic OF Gilgamesh and The Ark of Noah, the similarities between those two stories is more momentous than their differences. The major similarities in both stories is the cause of the flood. According to the Epic of Gilgamesh, the people on the earth were very noisy and wicked; thus, the gods decided to destroy the earth and kill all the people. Then, the leader of the pantheon gods ordered Utanapishtim to build a boat and save his life. “Reed fence, reed fence, wall, wall!
The reason that the Gods caused the was because humans were very loud all the time which the Gods found to be quite irritating because it prevented them from sleeping. The flood lasted for six days and nights. In exchange for having to live through something so traumatic, Utnapishtim was granted eternal life as well. The Epic of Gilgamesh was similar to The Flood Story despite all the differences. Obviously, they both included a flood and the destruction of humanity, but the stories both ended with a promise from their respective deity of God promising to never do anything as extreme as destroying humanity ever
Man thinks he can challenge his creator by undertaking this responsibility. Yet humanity succeeded in revealing many ambiguities in this world, human mind is still narrow. The novel is so called Prometheus, a figure in Greek mythology, took fire from the gods in order to give it to man , but consequently he suffered eternal punishment. Clearly, as Victor Frankenstein does in this modern Prometheus-in a way, he stole the idea of creation from God and used it for his own ill-advised
Similar to Atrahasis, the gods decide to destroy humanity, and feel remorse after causing a flood that almost accomplishes their will. Both Atrahasis and The Epic of Gilgamesh provide the framework that humans are ultimately expendable in the eyes of the gods either due to disobedience or inconvenience as both stories show humans as servants to the gods. This point is reinforced by the Enuma Elis which has Marduk creating humanity to do the work of the gods. In conclusion, the three aforementioned scenes show humanity as equated to servants, objects of the gods, and punished for disobeying their
They just naturally assumed that there was evil that had to be corrected and the gods were putting their wrath on the humanity. Many moments, from volcanic eruptions to a worldwide flood were caused by gods that are angry according to the Greeks. With people not knowing how things naturally occurring, they would blame small things like droughts to over abundance of water on the gods. Also with the reoccurring natural disasters were to the blame of the gods. Incidents that had to do with weather were from Zeus.
The reader has seen many situations where Oedipus had to suffer due to his hubris, however, he was not the only one suffering as his hubris brought agony to the whole city in the shape of the deadly plague. The people had to suffer so much that the people, who once worshipped Apollo as their everything, started saying things like “Nowhere Apollo’s golden glory now [and] / the gods go down” (996-97). Through this excerpt Sophocles indirectly showed the influence of the king on his people because if their king didn’t act hubristically, then the plague would have never hit the city and the people of Thebes would have never questioned the god. This leads the reader back to the theme as ignorance in Oedipus has spread within his kingdom, which is blinding the Thebans from seeing the truth as Apollo has already said that the plague was due to the doings someone from Thebes, yet the people blame god for the
We shall hex the Pentateuch and slip you in neatly between Numbers and Deuteronomy!” (101) These words, directed at Brady from Drummond, are rather unnecessary and cruel on Drummond’s part. In addition, Henry Drummond appears to be a very intimidating and malicious evolutionist. He is immediately portrayed as the bad guy in the story; the person defending Cates only in order to wreck the townspeople’s faith in the Bible. According to Brady, “He wants to destroy everyone’s belief in the Bible, and in our God!” (98) Yet, at the end of the
All of these factors contributed to how they felt about their gods; they viewed them as angry and were often scared of them. Anu, for example, is the sky god. He is also in control of the Bull of Heaven, which can be sent to earth to punish wrongdoers. Clearly, the religions are very different in both practice and the methodology behind them. While both Egypt and Mesopotamia were both ancient desert societies, their differences were great, and expanded far past their location on a map.
