In the speech we chose, Ismene is trying to convince Antigone to follow Creon’s order, and to not bury Polynices. She begins her argument by bringing up their tragic family history, about how their father “gouged out his eyes with his own hands” (Line 64), or how their mother died “mutilating her life in the twisted noose” (Line 66). Then, their brothers, “both shedding their own blood, poor suffering boys…” (Line 68). This use of their vividly horrifying history is an example of Pathos. Ismene is trying to appeal to Antigone’s emotions by bringing up the shortcomings of their family, comparing it to their own fate if Antigone chooses to bury Polynices.
This moment in the story was crucial in the plot because it starts the climax and when both sides of Ashleigh are fighting the hardest against the other. Another quote that demonstrates conflict is,”’No, Ashes the teapots the way to go”’(Pfeffer 4). This is actually a bit of character vs character conflict between Ashleigh and her father because she is trying to get him to to sell his car instead of stealing from mom. Instead of agreeing Dad says no and continues to drive the plot forward through conflict. The climax is the resolution to the plot.
The way that S.E. Hinton characterizes Rusty-James makes the story as interesting as it. Rusty-James is a tough kid who always gets into fights, trouble, and does whatever he wants. He drinks, fights, does bad in school and stays out as late as he wants. He is always in trouble, “ “Kid,” he said to me, “ don’t go getting into trouble, okay?” I must have looked at him like he was nuts because he continued on: “ I mean any trouble you can’t handle.”” (p.65), that’s who he was.
He was always going against what was right in society and was constantly trying to change it. In the story, he rebels against the government when their concept of handicaps impairs him from being who he really is. In his protest, he “tore the handicap harness like wet paper.” He also was “plotting to overthrow the government” so he could get rid of the handicaps that impaired people. This shows that he was rebellious, because he was going against what everybody else thought was right to get what he wanted. His rebelliousness also backs up Vonnegut’s feelings about freedom.
Their history is complex, and it is referenced by the two several times, making it obvious that they had hurt each other in the past. The two are extremely stubborn as well, always becoming heated and never giving up on a joust. They also are completely against marriage, making the pairing even more so unlikely. Finally, their biggest roadblock is their fear that the other dislikes them, but once they cross this barrier, Benedick and Beatrice can finally recognize their love for each other, and the other roadblocks do not matter once love is
Jack isn’t taking into account the fact that Ralph is a rational leader and simply thinks of himself, which is selfish and arrogant. Jack, much like the id, strives to take control and overpower those around him, taking any means necessary to achieve what he wants. “Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy’s head.” (Golding 71). Jack’s violent encounter with Piggy was unnecessary and cruel, only proving that he is an impulsive and violent character who craves to be in control, getting upset when something doesn’t go his way. Ralph maintains that Jack is powerful and intimidating, frequently neglecting the rules in order to satisfy his own
All three of them give great examples of how different slaves lives were. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Jim is an example of a slave who is scared of being sold and being separated from their familes. The main fear of any slave is getting sold to an abusive family. Jim ran away because he did not want his owner, Miss. Watson, to sell him (Twain 52).
Victor decides to rebel with the creatures demands and sacrifice his own well-being, because he realizes that the danger to the world is much bigger than the danger to himself. In present day, people do the unthinkable when they do not get what they prefer, so they then seek revenge. Throughout high school, many scenarios between couples proved the power of revenge between love. A handful of teenagers in today’s society come to one similar conclusion when they realize they have been betrayed. Getting back at a loved one, just so they can feel the hurt that they made them go through is often a primary choice of many illiterate adolescents.
Iago tells her that she talks too much and that she needs to be quiet, saying, “in faith,” she speaks “too much” (2.1.104). He also blatantly abuses her when he says Emilia “[is] a foolish wife” (3.3.304). When Iago says destructive things like these to Emilia, she does not have a chance to form her own identity. She is always reminded of what Iago thinks of her and therefore internalizes those ideas. June is held back by her many failed attempts to be a prodigy.
Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful. Furthermore, in addition to turning compatriots onto allies, power also creates an unquenchable lust for itself and drives the owner mad with paranoia, trying to protect their power. When he was threatened by the daughter of the previous ruler to be dethroned, he immediately strives to install a new law, he knew she could not abide so that he would be left without competition. The fabricated mandate by Creon was, “...Polyneices… is to have no burial…”( scene I lines 43-44). When he made
