All throughout the book, Buck slowly turns into a wild dog and lets his inner wolf come out, one way he does this is he digs a hole and learns that he 's not going to have a warm bed anymore. After walking around and getting kicked out of the nice warm tents, Buck learned that to keep warm at night he would have to dig a hole and prepare for the cold winter nights. Buck confidently selected a spot, and with much fuss and wasted effort proceeded to dig a hole for himself.” (London 20 & 21). In this quote, it is explaining that Buck had to find a spot to dig a hole to make himself a bed instead of being treated like a king and sleeping in the tent. Buck starts to become very protective of his master John Thornton, his crazy side starts to
“No ship made sail the next day until some shipmate had raised a cry, 3 times, for each poor ghost unleashed by the cyclones on that field” (Homer pg.). This is showing that Odysseus and others got led into the unknown. “Unlike the Hero’s home, this outside world has its own rules, and they quickly learn to respect these rules as their endurance, strength, and meetle are tested time and time again (Camphell). This quote mentioned above from the text is saying that when leaded into the unknown things are going to happen that are unknown. Finally at the end of The Hero’s journey there's a Reward and The journey home.
Rogers fears assumed that Adams was out for Rogers and his family thus resulting in Rogers almost dying but escaping as he knew where his freedom is. For President Bush (as well as the Americans), the fear of terror and the attack of their freedom shook their worlds into the reckless invasion in the Middle East resulting in an eight year long war. The satirical aspect Saunders uses to portray the simplified version of the beginning of 9/11 in “Adams” further emphasize that one sided information acts like propaganda in that the other side of the story is always hidden. The amount of ridicule by Rogers is a reflection to the amount of thought and strategy made by President Bush and the U.S. government that were aggressive and reckless. Saunders uses “Adams” to draw attention to all that history can be prevented to repeating itself; the invasion in the Middle East was made through rash and fear, a lesson to be learned by all Americans and to the posterity of America that actions do affect the
Jem’s consequences were for him to read to Mrs. Dubose for two straight hours after school every day until she died. Therefore I think revenge is dangerous because the outcomes could be deadly or could end in a very bad way. Just how Bob Ewells act of revenge caused him to die, and how Jems act of revenge caused him to have a punishment he wishes he didn’t have to do. Revenge never ends in a good way, so always think before you
He actually prays for the opportunity to get his hands on the monster so he can kill him himself. Victor’s desire for the monsters life to come to an end becomes an internal need and obsession. Victor vows that he will do everything in his natural power to destroy his monster: “My rage is unspeakable… I have but one resource; and I devote myself, either in my life or death, to his destruction” (148). Victor has gone mad with the idea that he must destroy this monster, which he devotes his life to doing. His own creation, the monster, has caused him countless melancholy feelings, and it has pushed him to the brink of insanity.
The detonation of the bomb started drills throughout America. Roberts wrote, “Anxiety over a possible Soviet nuclear attack manifested itself in many ways, from talk of apocalyptic nuclear devastation to weekly air-raid drills that sent schoolchildren cowering under their desks or into fallout shelters,” (Roberts 2). Fear of Communist infiltration as well as the nuclear attack caused people to take precautions. People believed that no one was safe from soviet spies in
But there is a conflict and this is that there is no one of his kind in the world; and because of this he becomes very sad. The creature confronts Victor and asks him to make another creature similar to him but female, and Victor begins to make another creature but stops in the middle of his project. The creature finds this out and begins to terrorize Victor, the creature gets Victor's attention by killing a child and then killing Victor's best friend. When the creature killed Victor's best friend Victor had known what had to be done. The last thing that made the creature have full control over Victor was that he killed his newly wed wife.
First, Hercules begins his life hated by Juno (Hera) since he was the son of her husband, Jupiter (Zeus), and a mortal named Alcmene, so Juno attempted many times to kill him and create despair for Hercules. Therefore, she maddened Hercules with a temporary spell and during this he killed his Wife, Magara, and his kids which starts his journey. Then he fled to the forest until he decided to go to Apollo’s temple to search for forgiveness. Once the oracle says to him that Apollo believes that he must complete tasks from the cruel king Eurythesus to make up for what he did wrong; thus, he must leave Greece and his adventure begins. Nevertheless, he is not alone during his journey and gains help along his way from gods, such as Minerva who gives

It shows that America’s use of the Atomic Bombs was “of no material assistance in our war against Japan” and that the choice to drop these bombs was a barbaric decision and has had a long lasting effect on all people around the world. People still to this day are afraid of nuclear warfare just like how recently there has been a lot of tension between USA and North Korea and speculation that North Korea is going to use nuclear warfare on
For example, that visual image by Rob Rogers shows me that even the U.S. citizens felt that the nuclear bomb in Hiroshima, Japan was too much and not called for. After the Pearl Harbor bombing, the U.S. wanted revenge on Japan so they unleashed a nuclear bomb which killed millions more in Japan compared to the casualties in Pearl Harbor. The book To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee shows many examples of why revenge and hatred should never be justified. First of all, Bob Ewell is a great example of why you must control your
After Najmah experiencing the bombs and stars shooting out of the sky she had then only experienced bad things with stars shooting out of the sky.When she saw the meteors she thought bad things were going to happen because that’s all she knew of.

Najmah had been in so much shock, she had no expressions or feelings when telling Nusrat the story of her mother and brother because she had been in so much
