Proctor says “ You are the high court, your word is good enough! tell them i confessed myself; say proctor broke his knees and wept like a woman, but my name cannot!”. In the quote John Proctor does not want written proof that he was a witch because he wants to protect his friends and not throw them under the bus. This means he cares for his friends and is truly a good man. Proctor says; “ let them that near dead now take their souls, it is pretence to me.”
The whole plot being that firemen create fires in the story yet in reality they get rid of them, that is very pessimistic. In the book firemen burn books and any houses with books in them to prevent anyone from broadening their horizons and going against the government. A similar thing happened in Nazi Germany which was an extremely negative time in history. Another example would be, in the beginning when Montag is talking to Clarisse and she asks "are you happy?
In his eyes, Perry sees this as betrayal and may be a large part of the reason he detest her. Capote uses this lyric because it foreshadows the death of Perry. Otto and Perry conclude the song by asking “won’t you give me flowers while I’m living” (Capote 117). This lyric is essential because the “lilies” and the “flowers” symbolize mercy. He is pleading with the world to give him mercy while he is alive, not after he is dead.
¨We in the audience can see the implication that eludes them (this is where our expectations concerning roads enter the equation), so much so that we may want to scream at them to walk them to walk up the road to a new life (Foster 236).¨ We didn't expect Tom to cheat on his wife, Daisy after he so called claimed he loved her. But what is really ironic, during the end of the book, Tom goes to Wilson's garage to get some gas for the car. Wilson explains to Tom how he thinks his wife Myrtle is having an affair but does not know who it is. As Daisy was driving, she accidentally killed Myrtle and it is insane because Daisy did not know Tom was cheating on her with Myrtle as well. It shows how dishonest and cruel people be.
In contrast, George and Hazel in the short story cannot even identify the obstacle that they are facing with their lives. This is evident when Hazel suggests George take his bad down, he refuses by saying that when “[people] get away with it, and pretty soon [they’d be right back to the dark ages again,” and Hazel agreed. Sadly, they are so passionate about “equality”, that they are blind about that fact that they are suffering. In conclusion, both “”Warren Pryor” and “Harrison Bergeron” illustrate the danger of overly controlling humanity.

When Jeannette explains to Rex Walls what Erma did to Brian, he starts to shake and cover his ears and pretend like he couldn’t hear them. After Lori and Jeannette talk, Jeannette thinks, “You’d be weird, too, if Erma was your mom... it would explain a lot… Why he drank so much and why he got so angry.” Rex Walls tried to escape from Welch and its people for a better future, but in the end couldn’t escape from his problems because he focused too much on his past and never gave the future his complete attention. When the mines started to shut down, many people turned to alcohol and drugs to keep their minds off of their problems in life.
Lastly, Odysseus lack of leadership is shown when he tells his men not to open the bag of air. Some readers argue Odysseus should have shown them the bag in order to avoid the situation, “Temptation had its way with [his] companions, and they untied the bag. Then every wind roared into hurricane; the ships went pitching west with many cries; [their] land was lost” (X. 50-54). However, a heroes orders are followed without debating, but Odysseus orders were not obeyed.
Equality is still referring to himself as “we”, even as he struggles to determine what the better, unspeakable word might be. His second instance of feeling there is a better word than we comes a bit later in the novel, when he and his romantic focus, The Golden One, are trying to tell each other their feelings after they have both escaped the city into the Uncharted Forest. The Golden One starts by saying, “we love you”, but quickly decides that was not what she wanted to say (86). She is trying to say I love you, but doesn’t have the correct word, and so stumbles over an awkward re-phrasing that still relies on describing individuals in the plural. Equality quickly realizes what she is trying to do and “knew that the
In the story it says, “ ‘I know, I know. You’ve said that a hundred times,’ she snapped. ‘What did you say?’ He asked, pushing his newspaper aside.” Maria’s conflict connects to the theme of the story because she is being ungrateful towards her father and wants to grow up too fast.
Taylor Marie McQuaid, also known as Taylor Quaid, is perhaps one of the most passionate and determined individuals at Central Dauphin High School. Taylor has always lived in Harrisburg, with her parents, older brother, cat, and three dogs including a boxer, a boxer-lab mix, and a miniature pinscher. She has however, ventured out of the 717 on many occasions, such as trips to Canada, Disney World, New York City, and her favorite place to visit, Lewes, Delaware. She does not like the chaos and filth of bustling cities and prefers plain food over exotic cuisine; thus, if she could go anywhere today she would go to Ireland and Scotland, the land of her ancestry. Ironically, the Irish flag proudly displays her favorite color, which is orange.
The passage “On Seeing England for the First Time” by Jamaica Kincaid uses repetition and figurative language to convey her resentment toward England. Jamaica Kincaid uses repetition in her passage to show how her attitudes toward England as it slowly erased the Antigua’s culture. Kincaid uses the words “Made in England” to express how the English had dominated their culture and their way of life; the Antigua people had been asphyxiated by the English and their culture so aggressively and for so long that they began feeling inferior for not being English which made them try even harder to strive and be just like them because they considered that their main goal, to be able to be part of the magnificence that was the english culture. She goes on to explain how she had to change personal aspects to be more acceptable by her society
In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, the citizens of a corrupt United States are controlled by the government. Books and novels have been prohibited because they contain ideas and knowledge which allow the citizens to think. The government does not approve of thinking so the books and novels get burned by firemen. Instead of reading novels, the people can only watch television and read comics and sex magazines.
The Free Phoenix It is because of the quote, “Progress is impossible without change,and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” by George Bernard Shaw that Ray Bradbury,creator of Fahrenheit 451,uses his characters Captain Beatty’s, a woman’s suicide, Faber’s,and Granger’s words and actions to influence Guy Montag’s thoughts,emotions ,and actions throughout the novel. Ray Bradbury uses his character Captain Beatty,to show a change of emotions in the main character, Guy Montag.
