Take the shot from the weapon"(58). Beatty always quoted books to torture Montag, so he can always be reminded of what he is doing is bad, and also why it was bad. In this quote Beatty is making Montag understand that books are the enemy, he compares them to a loaded gun. When Beatty says "Burn it . Take the shot from the weapon"(58), he meant that fire gives everyone the power to be able to eliminate the threat which was books, he thought that you're able to protect yourself, and also turn the situation around by taking away that power by burning.
Fahrenheit 451 I was a pleasure to burn. Fahrenheit 451 is a book of an untold future about how technology has ruined society and the minds of the people that live it in. Ray Bradbury used his knowledge of human nature and their reaction to new technology to write this book. In the dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury uses conflict, imagery and irony to convey that ignorance is bliss a message that resonates in today’s society. Ignorance is bliss is a common phrase used to simulate that have lack of knowledge is perfect happiness.
One of my favorite things about this book is that it is based on a true crime and at the end of the book there is the kid’s poem about Christopher which is very touching. The book had many good parts to it. The only thing I didn’t like about this is that it actually was based on a true story, and it’s sad to learn that the nice kid was murdered. Another favorite part of mine was when Doc, Hunger, Mildred, Squib and Hazel went on a mission to dump a barrel of animal poop on a guy’s car, which Doc and Hunger did all the work and they even dumped some inside the car. “Now, let’s shake it.
The grand finale The chivalric romantic, “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” written by an anonymous poet, often attempts to share Christian values to teach valuable life lessons. The story concludes with a scene of the round table at Arthur's court laughing at Sir Gawain; however, the knights honor Gawain by wearing green belts. The poet then gives praise and thanks to Jesus with a Latin conclusion. In the Latin the conclusion, the poet writes a line loosely translated as those who think evil act evil. When Gawain stayed at the host's house he thought evilly which lead to him acting evil as well.
The text writing that was most influential to me was the review by Stephen King, “Why We Crave Horror Movies.” In this review the author was very upfront with his option that was a reasonable one. He explains different events where you might get the same, in your stomach feeling, that horror movies give you. He also states a bold fact that everyone is insane and people cope with it in different ways. He explains how horror movies unchain or our worst fantasies, he says, “It’s like throwing a bucket of raw meat to hungry alligators to feed our dark thoughts and ideas.” But my favorite part is at the end when he quotes John Lennon and Paul McCartney “All you need it love” and finishes their statement by saying “As long as you keep the gators
Based on the theory of social consensus, a meme can be classified as a hateful symbol. For example, the Anti-Defamation league has branded the Pepe meme as a hate symbol. As stated by Jessica Roy of LA times “Pepe the Frog” First appeared in 2005 in the comic “Boy’s club” by artist and illustrator Matt Furie.” Furie had good intentions for “Boy’s Club;” however, he was disheartened when we found out about the derogatory characterizations of Pepe. Such as individuals dressing him as a Nazi or a Klan member. This unbeknownst event was has ultimately contributed to Pepe being deemed as a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League(ADL).
Theodore Sturgeon, an American science-fiction and horror writer and critic, called Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle “appalling, hilarious, shocking and infuriating” and argued “it’s an annoying book and you must read it. And you better take it lightly, because if you don’t you’ll go off weeping and shoot yourself.” and this is a very accurate description of this Novel. Kurt Vonnegut has a very dark and twisted sense of humor in this book and it may not appeal to all people. You have to be a certain type of person that has the same sense of humor as Kurt Vonnegut to truly enjoy this humor and this novel. Cat 's Cradle is Vonnegut 's novel about the day the world ended.
From metaphors to letting the reader become Scout, it purposefully engages the reader. What truly makes To Kill a Mockingbird a classic is its expression of life, truth, and its use of literature. Although it might not be a bestseller today it is its use of language and purpose behind the story that keeps the readers coming. “We stood watching the street fill with men and cars while fire silently devoured Miss Maudie 's house” (Chapter 8 pg. 69) This quote is an
The statement that Dante’s Inferno is the most “immoral and impious book that was ever written” (Pearl) is incorrect because of Dante’s reasoning behind the creation of the Commedia. Dante’s goal is to save the souls of all who have gone “astray/ from the straight road” (I.1-2) and may find themselves in the Dark Wood of Error. Throughout the Inferno, Dante makes several references begging the reader to “understand/ [his] poem and profit from it” (XX.19-20). Dante realizes that his text brings together “striking odors, filth, excrement, blood, mutilated bodies, agonizing shrieks, [and] mythical monsters of punishment” (Pearl), but Dante must include these references in order for the reader to experience all, just as Dante does to save his.
A Different Vision about the Short Story: The Murders in the Rue Morgue George Eliot said, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. This quote is always true even when it is a horror book. There is a criticism analysis article, ‘To Make Venus Vanish’: Misogyny as Motive in Poe’s ‘Murders in the Rue Morgue’, which is written by Joseph Church. This article is written about his judgment on the author because of the author’s sexual discrimination. In his article, there are two remarkable points that I agree with: Poe’s discrimination is revealed by the way he mocks Madame L’Espanaye’s wealth, and also the way he ends up the terrible death without any punishments.
8. A portion of verbal irony is the party slogan “War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength” (Orwell page 5). It’s a statement which on the surface is contradictory, but it contains truth. An example of dramatic irony is Winston is worried about getting caught writing in his journal. 9.
and observe how healthily” (Poe 303). The narrator shares an event from the past which he tells us about his hatred for this old man’s eye which resembled that of a “vulture, a pale blue eye, with a film over it”(Poe 303). The narrator uses these illustrative images of this pernicious eye to assist in building the plot. He is trying to convince readers that all of this is because of the “Evil eye”(Poe 303).
