Hammurabi claimed that his laws were both just and helpful to a wide range of people, but the majority of the laws don’t support either of his claims. In the instance of many laws, he appears to be very drastic with his consequences. In one of his codes, he says that if a women is caught in adultery with another man, both people must be tied up and thrown into the water (doc C, law 129). The act of binding the two people together and drowning them is a very specific and extreme repercussion for cheating. Another example of Hammurabi’s unnecessary harshness, was the law stating that if a man has broken into another’s house he shall be put to death by piercing him or hanging him in the hole which he made in the house (doc D, law 21).
People are tired, weak, and sick, and they need a strong young girl to help take care of them. She has proven her helpfulness in a lot of different events throughout the novel. For instance, she helped take care of her mother who fell ill early into the story. She took care of her the best she could, all by herself. Evidence in the text states,” I took two extra clothes press and hurried upstairs to watch over Mother...I so wanted to touch her...I smoothed her hair…’I’m here’...’Be still’...I sponged her face clean.” Matilda was raised by her strict mother who enforced obedience.
Though they are represented as opposites, the witch and Rapunzel’s mother share the yearning for motherhood (Fisher and Silber 128). In other versions of “Rapunzel” the witch figure has varied representations, appearing sometimes as an ugly ogre that literally embodies her evil character, occasionally as a fairy, or even in several renditions as a nun (Getty 48). Though the magical representation of a fairy, ogre or witch seems to fit the evil nature of the witch’s actions, the interesting approach is that of the witch figure as a nun. Getty suggests that this could be based on a more realistic story, as the plant the mother craves, which is often translated as parsley, would only be grown in a few places, such as convents, due to its price (48). To get the plant Rapunzel’s parents would have encountered a nun, who would perhaps have seen the mother as a sinning, pregnant women and agree to raise the child in the convent in return for the plant (Getty 48).
It is demonstrated in the book of short stories ‘Final del juego’ (1956) including the three stories that will be outlined here: ‘La noche boca arriba’, ‘Final del juego’ and ‘Continuidad de los parques’. He defines this fantastic literature as “turning one’s back on a reality universally accepted as normal” (2). All in all, the battle between the real and the fictional dominates the short stories of Julio Cortázar. ‘La noche boca arriba’ might be the perfect short story to exhibit the clash between reality and the fantastic. What the reader believes to be real turns out to be imaginary.
In the play the fairies use magic and are not actually aware of human actions. They are clueless as to what is going on and hold a more mythical aspect of themselves. However, in the movie the fairies are more like the humans because they act more humanlike by knowing how to do things like washing of clothes or the scene in the movie where Titania and Bottom are celebrating and feasting over their new-found love, the fairies are serving them as human servants would. The fairy world

They seem to be elemental creatures, nature ones. The most frequent type of fairy around the world – forest fairies. They inhabit a moonlight forest were they love, fight, play and helpfully sort the poor young lovers out before sending them off, back to their own civilized world. Shakespeare’s fairies are night creatures and leave the outer world at sunrise: “And we fairies, that do run, / From the presence of the sun, / Following darkness like a dream” (Act V, scene I). Nocturnal hours traditionally were the ones
How would the truth of each character’s candor-self illustrate differently? The classic Cinderella tale traditionally utilizes Cinderella’s pain to instill hope and benevolence in her character, but that anguish could instead fabricate a monster. Each Cinderella tale has a slightly different outlook on the fate of Cinderella. Some of the most notable tales include; The Grimm Brothers original fable of “Cinderella”, The Little Golden Book version of Cinderella and the 2015 Disney movie adaptation, Cinderella.
