To begin with when Castle made his high tops low tops it was the first time when shoes played a big role in the book. When Castle cut his shoes to go faster but this only hurt him because his classmate Shamika embarrassed him. “Shamika couldn’t get herself together long enough to even speak, so instead she just pointed at my feet” (Reynolds 80). What Shamika did made Castle so frustrated that he skipped school and made him realize it was a waste of money which was already a problem in his family. Another time shoes played a big role was when Castle stole the “Silver Bullets” from the sports store.
Besides, these fanatics always try suicide; the pattern’s familiar.” (Radbury 36). A day later, Beatty talked to Montag stating that books are only outlawed because it made other people unhappy. “Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of every other; then all are happy, for there is no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against!”
Both tom Buchanan and George Wilson are two vastly different people but are alike in the most unusual ways. They are the only two characters in the book to use violence; both say they “love” Myrtle and both fight for their women only when they are about to lose them. That is where the similarities cease. Tom is the man who cheats on his wife daisy, with George 's wife Myrtle, and then proceeds to slap her when she would not stop speaking Daisy 's name. George, on the other hand, is a passionate and faithful husband to Myrtle and is crushed to learn that she was cheating on him so much so that he assassinates Gatsby whom he thinks was cheating with myrtle and murdered to get rid of the evidence of his adultery.
Hamartia is defined as tragic flaw or human failing and that accurately describes Oedipus’ situation and his lack of action to prevent his fate as Walton said, “Oedipus is so stricken at the thought of marrying his mother that he never thinks twice before killing an older man who stands in his way, even though the second part of the Oracle told him he would kill his father”(1). It is arguable that Oedipus did not deserve to die like this, but with such minimal effort to avoid this, it is hard to say
At the end of the play, Creon comes to realize his tragic flaw after he ultimately caused all of his family and Antigone deaths. Creon lost his will to live after this point, unwilling to forgive himself for the attroisty he caused. The same can be said for Antigone. She was born into royalty with her father, Oedipus, being the son of the former king and Creon was one of his brothers. She also has a hamartia of being too obdurated on the burial of her brother Polynices.
Harry is still only 12 years old and growing up, and in the end he’s a bit worried about some similar traits between him and Voldemort, the most evil wizard during this time. But at page 245 Dumbledore, the headmaster at school tells him that ”It is our choices, Harry, that shows what we truly are, fare more than our
Willy says [nothing her mending] “what 's that?” Linda says “just mending my stockings. They’re so expensive” Willy says [angrily, taking them from her] “I won’t have you mending stockings in this house! Now throw them out”(Miller 26)! Willy got mad very quickly because he knew that he cheated on his wife; Willy had bought the woman some stockings, so when Linda said something about stockings, he went into a panic so he started yelling at her.
What do thousands of kids do when they are scared that they will be charged with war crimes if they escape from there battle? That is what child soldiers across the world, ask themselves every day. Because they do not know if they should risk their lives to get amnesty that is promised to them, just to be thrown in jail. Because there are rules that the child soldiers don't even know, so it is a gamble they have to bid their lives on.. Child soldiers deserve amnesty because they are drugged and brainwashed, they are kidnaped or forced to join, also they are killed and abused for little to no reason.
His story tells us that man can do his best, but even then, he cannot overcome the inevitable fate. Oedipus eventually sees the truth of his life, so Sophocles hammers home his point by having the king stab out his own eyes. Oedipus says he does this because he can no longer look at the evil that his actions have created. “crying out that they should never see him again, nor what he suffered nor the evil he did, nor look on those they should not— but only darkness, forever” (1271-74). Oedipus literally becomes the thing he's always been: blind.
Anything that makes someone different is used against them to make them seem different from the rest. Bad hearted people tease and assault anyone who is different to them and those around them, when the truth is they are the same. In our history class paper we learned, ¨Color seems to be the only possible reason why thousands of american citizens of japanese ancestry are in consentration camps.¨(doc C, social studies class.)The German are making anyone that is different to them in camps and killing them and hurting them bady. Millions of people don’t deserve this. On another history class assignment we were taught, ¨They wanted to isolate and convince them to leave.
Humphrey Dunfee is an urban legend intended to scare kids (think: Candyman or the witch 's uvula). It 's first mentioned in Chapter 7, as if kids who are going to be unwound need more to be scared of. The legend says that Humphrey Dunfee 's parents regret unwinding their son, so they 're hunting down pieces of him and rebuilding him, Frankenstein 's monster-style. At the end of the legend, the futility of the mission is addressed.

I think this because everyone thought the greasers were no good scum who were terrible people but they turned out to be nice. An example is johnny, Johnny was thought to be a very shy person. Then he stabbed bob in self defense and socs thought he was evil. Then when ponyboy saved the kids everyone was shocked that a greaser helped kids out of a burning
‘Dystopian novels help people process their fears about what the future might look like; further, they usually show that there is always hope, even in the bleakest future.’ -Lauren Oliver. Dystopian stories give readers a futuristic, imagined universe that portray an illusion of the perfect society through technological, moral, corporate or bureaucratic control.
It’s rare that a work of religious satire actually promotes faith as a whole, but that is the case in Cat’s Cradle, where Kurt Vonnegut spends more time discussing- or at the very least admitting to- the good things about faith and spirituality than he does criticizing religion. This is not to say that Vonnegut’s work is a glowing endorsement of all Gods and Holy Men- Vonnegut’s criticism of organized religion is harsh and total. All the same, the text does promote a sense of spirituality and connectivity with the world that is never contested. In short, Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle bitterly criticizes the habits and beliefs of organized religion, but stops short of criticizing (and in many ways endorses) the wide variety of good things which can
