She often makes comments such as, “That’s not me. It’s some committee’s idea of me” (Westerfeld 44). This becomes the major problem of identity in the book Uglies. Shay wonders about what is really you and what other people want to make you. For Shay, being herself means to be tricky and not to listen to the laws.
Alack the day!”(4.5.) It shows that everyone thinks she’s dead just so she doesn’t have to marry someone. If tybalt hadn’t gone and acted all tough, Romeo would be there to stop the wedding, and there wouldn’t have been a wedding in the first place. Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because Romeo thinks she’s actually dead so he dies, then Juliet dies. (for reals this time) Juliet want to be with her husband “Yea, noise?
In order for Christine’s argument against sexist males to be more powerful, she uses a rhetorical device called the topos of modesty, which means that she willingly appears more ignorant. This ignorance helps play out her existential crisis and makes it seem more real that she is starting to believe what men say about women. Christine tells Lady Reason that she feels as though being a woman in this time period is a waste of space if she was only placed here to make men miserable. Reason helps Christine decipher her own self-consciousness and sift through the negative thoughts of the anti-female writers by showing Christine that she, as well as all women, have a significant place in society. This is the first example of how Christine criticizes medieval European society.
In the play Abby tries to do witchcraft to kill John Proctor's wife Elizabeth. She almost gets caught doing it so she accuses many people of bewitching her and got many people hanged. She accuses Elizabeth of bewitching her to kill her. The court will not kill her because she is pregnant but John Procter ends up being hanged because he was accused. In the play Elizabeth the example of good.
The feuding families always get a bad ending. In “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare two young enemies fall for eachother but it's not good that they did. The two families are at feud which makes their love deniable. The feud of the families is what caused Romeos and Juliets deaths. For instance when they got married they had to hide their marriage from their families and Juliet had to fake her death.
Many believe that it’s Tom Buchannan to be blamed because he lies to Wilson who killed his wife Myrtle to get his revenge towards Gatsby by getting him killed for trying to take Daisy away from him. Gatsby could have prevented his own death if he didn’t lose to his own ego to claim Daisy, as his own to claim dominance over Tom would later seal his fate in a death bed. During chapter 7 things get heated when Tom and Gatsby started arguing “Your wife doesn’t love you …. she’s never loved you. She loves me”(131-7).
They are both and they are married to the enemies of their families. The only reason why he bought the poison was because of his friend telling him the Juliet is dead.If he never told Romeo then none of it would have happened.Romeo and Juliet were worried that something worse would happen between their families if they told them that they had gotten
So the friar gave her a potion that would fake her death, and she’d be asleep for two days. He’d tell Romeo that she is faking and they would meet and run away. But Romeo never got the letter, but he did get news that she was “dead”. So he ran there and killed himself, when Juliet woke up to find Romeo dead she really killed herself. So if the feud wasn’t there then Tybalt wouldn’t have died, Romeo wouldn’t have been banished, and Juliet would never had to go to the friar.
Discernment was an important aspect of the Crucible, though many characters in the Arthur Miller play show poor judgement, one unlikely player in the game of Salem’s mass hysteria who made choices that showed sound logic was Abigail Williams. While her actions would not seem morally sound to the masses, especially not in the insular times of the witch trials, her endeavours into deceit and revenge were merely a product of the time. She was stifled to an extent that even dancing was considered a crime, and women were considered sinful for even daring to read. While her accusations were falsehoods and cruel to those who were jailed or put to death, she was following the ambitions she was unable to seek as a woman in 1690s Massachusetts. Her love
Last but not least Ismene. she was Antigone’s sister and “Her partner in Crime” (according to Creon). She was a coward at the beginning for not helping Antigone give her brother his rights like when she said “Antigone, you are mad! What could I possibly do?” and she was scared also because of the law “Bury him! You have just said the new law forbids it.
If someone “hangs for a witch he forfeit up his property” (Miller, 99) and then others would fight to get their property. In the Red Scare, those accused lost their jobs and their well earned respect. For example, Helen Keller’s reputation is practically spotless but once branded with communism, that went downhill. In the Crucible, Rebecca Nurse was accused of witchcraft, who was seen as the “mother” of Salem and had a pure reputation. This just shows that people blindly believed what they were told without really thinking about it.
John Proctor fears his name’s identity, which is evident near the end of the play when he resists Deputy Danforth and Reverend Hale’s posting his name on the church door, accusing him of witchcraft (IV.712-717). John Proctor is Elizabeth Proctor’s husband, who involved in an affair with Abigail Williams when she was still working as the Proctor’s maid. Elizabeth fires Abigail, once she realizes her maid and her husband’s covert relationship. Elizabeth’s dismissal causes Abigail to become very angry, for women had little power at the time, let alone unmarried women like herself. By playing her Mafia-like wailing and doll piercing games and forcing the other Salem girl to participate, Abigail determines to terminate Elizabeth and keep John for herself (460-473).
Many of those accused as witches died not just because of the accusers but, because of the unfairness of the trials.The judges of the trials used spectral evidence, ignoring the accused, and the judges were unfair because they believed in witches and want those who were witches dead. In the trials judges used spectral evidence. Spectral evidence is when the accused claim that they saw the spirit of the person on trial do something that they should not have done. In the book it states that “A woman named Goodie Bibber testified that the specter of Rebecca
