He places the lives of his men in danger because he values rank more than his men, and when it becomes apparent that his men can not win he declares, “If those little sweethearts won’t face German bullets, they’ll face French ones”(2). At the loss of the battle, General Mireau places the loss of the battle on his soldiers, calling them cowards. To save his own hide, he allows three innocent men to be tried, convicted, and shot for the sake of his perceived glory. Of all the characters, that which displays the most cowardice in their path to glory, is Lieutenant Roget. Not only does he run from the enemy, but when it comes time to choose which of his men are to die for General Miraue, Lieutenant Roget selects the one man that could call out his own cowardice, Corporal Paris.
Multiple harsh scenarios give a detailed outline on how Blanche can ruin a character 's self esteem without doing much harm to her own. Blanche buries her own personal flaws by attention seeking , flirtatious behavior, lying and drinking. “Blanches most fundamental regret as we see her in new orleans, is not that she happened to marry a homosexual… Blanche’s concern that, when made aware of her husband 's sexuality she brought on the boys suicide” (Berkman 252) When Blanche judges somebody else it take weight off her shoulders from her own life struggles. Allan killing himself was just another layer of filth that Blanche tends not to acknowledge. The act of Allan Grey killing himself after Blanche discover’s that he is a homesexual is what started the chain of events for Blanche to take on majority of her traits.
These thoughts terrify him because the prisoners could have been the German's allies with only "a word of command" (193). Such thoughts are perturbing to Paul because they place him in "the abyss" of non-feeling which is also known as the "annihilation of all human feeling" (194). Later in the book, Paul tries to save the life of the French soldier whom he has just stabbed because he has come to see the French soldier as a man rather than the enemy he feared when he suddenly jumped into the shell hole. Paul distinguishes his enemies such as the Russians and French as men because he wants to eschew the feeling of "abyss" or the "annihilation of all human
Bradbury uses the handymen to illustrate how a society would be if no one cared about life. The operators did not care that Mildred had just committed suicide; they saw it as a little problem. The conflict between Montag and Mildred explain how technology can ruin a relationship. Mildred only cares about her television while Montag just wants to talk to her. Lastly the Martyr affects Montag’s inner self because he watched her burn alive for her books.
It came out while the war was beginning to make people understand the extent to which such conflict was nonsensical and worthless. The singer uses a sarcastic tone as he promotes war and death. He thinks that war is senseless, so he uses such a foolish and crazy tone to tackle it. In the first stanza, McDonald sings, “So put down your books and pick up a gun, / We’re gonna have a whole lot of fun!”. The cantor refers to the unlucky college students who are drafted and end up dying for no serious cause.
Yet, his body is held captive in a hospital room that serves as a prison. He is closed off from the public because the leaders who rally war do not want the world to see the affects of war on servicemen. Trumbo reveals this by, “He was the future he was a perfect picture of the future and they were afraid to let anyone see what the future was like” (Trumbo 240-241). From Trumbo’s perspective, the government officials who rally war cover up the ugliness of war and the scars that it leaves on people’s lives. Through their use of propaganda and deception they make war into the cheap plastic rings that people buy in quarter
Another example includes when the portly gentlemen ask Scrooge for donations and they tell him that many of the poor would rather die than go to the prison, Scrooge harshly replies, “ ‘If they would rather die...they had better do it and decrease the surplus population’ “ (10). This illustrates that Scrooge would rather have people die than give them money or donations. This is because Scrooge doesn’t care if someone dies and isn’t afraid to say so. Therefore,these scenes prove that Scrooge is evil. At the last stave of Christmas Carol, after the all the ghosts visit, Scrooge is as kind as an angel.
These flaws lead to his mistake of betting on his own team while managing, which ultimately led to his downfall. After suspicions of this betting, the Commissioner’s office hired a prosecutor to start an investigation, and he was banished from baseball forever shortly after. This banishment was devastating to Pete Rose, because it erased his chance of getting into the Hall of Fame completely. In the Shakespearean model of tragedy, anagnorisis, or the change from ignorance to the recognition of the hamartia, is not always perceived by the tragic hero. However, Pete Rose accepts his punishment and knows his gambling habits were a monumental mistake.
And thou and Romeo press one heavy bier.” (III.ii.60-61) In Act 3, Scene 3 Romeo much rather be dead than be banished and Friar Lawrence explains how ungrateful he is to be alive and that Juliet still loves him. Similarly, in Act 4, Scene 3 where Juliet is about to take the sleeping potion, she expresses how she would not mind if the potion killed her or caused her to go insane, but if she was alive and well she kill herself immediately. Doubleness is also part of theme in the story. Doubleness is deception or dissimulation. When Mercutio gets stabbed by Tybalt he says “Ay, ay, a scratch; marry ‘tis enough/ Where is my page?
In the poem “Punishment,” the speaker addresses this poem by comparing the brutal punishment that he rejects with such abhorrence to the crimes of the IRA against British sympathizers in Ulster. He relates the powerful, difficult emotions of injustice with the sense of brutality created by the conflict of The Troubles (Heaney 1153). In the story “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” by Flannery O’Connor we can represent the second particular about unjust punishment. Whether or not the Misfit seeks justice is questionable. He kills because he figures that he was unjustly punished, so he may as well be mean since he has already served time in prison for the crimes.
Contrasting between the two criminals is the funny part of the task to think of ways to differentiate between the two. Bill is so different from his partner, because he was getting harmed by red chief (the boy they kidnapped) while Sam wasn’t getting touched. Bill is getting injured back to back and Sam’s getting tired of red chief hurting his partner in crime. Bill insisted for Red Chief to go home, but for some reason he said no and he wanted stay and play with Bill and Sam. Bill said that he was going to end up in the hospital ,Cause red chief keeps on hurting him.
