However, through the characteristics of Stanhope who cares about Raleigh till the end, and shows consideration towards all the other soldiers, he is portrayed as an admirable character. Also, the period when the play was performed and the effect of the play towards the audience leaves lingering imagery, which helps them to understand Stanhope and presents Stanhope as a character to be admired. Throughout the anti war play Journey’s End, the author portrays Stanhope as a protagonist with ambivalent characteristics: he is a hero and workaholic on one hand, but an alcoholic and victim of war on the other. However, overall, Sherriff represents Stanhope as an admirable character. It is his characteristics, which shows a strong belief in his soldiers and respect for the country, that makes Osborne respect him.
Motivations- Throughout the play, Otto Frank’s goal is to protect the families and make sure that they are safe until the end of the war. Mr. Frank is what some people would call “The Man of the House” because he is always acting like a leader and takes care of everyone. When Anne passes out, Mr. Frank doesn’t hesitate to risk their concealment by getting water for Anne, which shows how committed he is to helping his family. He argues, “If they’ve found us, they’ve found us. Get the water...”(542).
Paul and his comrade, Kat, developed a bond of friendship and brotherhood during the dismal times of the war, which helped their individual desires to survive and protect their fellow soldiers. Although Paul is very sympathetic about the war and believed that it was very pointless, he still served his country as ordered, in the hopes of
Peter the Great was someone that I believed deserved his title of Great as leader and a King. I do not think that he was a great man. He was a good ruler because of his changes to the country and the modernization of it. He was not a great man because of his hatred for and neglect first wife and his oldest son. If I judge him on his actions as a king I would say that he does deserve the title of great but if I look at his personal life I would say that he is the complete opposite of great.
Othello explains to the Duke that he does not fear Barbantio disapproving because he knows that he is a good general. “Her father loved me, oft invited me… From year to year- the battles, sieges, fortunes That I have passed. I ran it through, even my boyish days” (1.3.127-131). Othello believes that because he is a good general, Barbantio will be able to overlook his relationship with Desdemona. Othello is also counting on the fact that Barbantio once loved him.
Madonna represents the pain and suffering of the Haitian women, especially Josephine 's mom. But in " Nineteen Thirty-Seven," Edwidge Danticat reveals the significant and the value of the Madonna from Haitian women, the story behind the status and the relationship between mother and daughter. Manman believes that Madonna provides hope and faith to the mother, mothers grand-mothers, and great-grandmothers. Josephine states that "At times, she seemed happier to see the Madonna than she was to see me" (page 449). She states this because he mother has a big faith in Madonna that she would protect her daughter and her from the pain.
A mother and daughter love and support each other through good times and bad times. In an article written by Eavan O 'Brien, he talks in further detail about the dynamic mother-daughter relationships have. He states, "before sisterhood; there was the knowledge - transitory, fragmented, perhaps, but original and crucial - of mother-and-daughterhood" (JSTOR). This alludes to how people should value the first person who a child develops a relationship with. Hester and Pearl share these same qualities and more throughout the novel.
Influential Russian author, Fyodor Dostoevsky might have foreshadowed such a leader as Putin in his book The Brothers Karamazov: “He understood very well that for the meek soul of a simple Russian, exhausted by grief and hardship and, above all, by constant injustice and sin, there was no stronger need than to find a holy shrine or a saint to prostrate himself before to worship”. Considering the needless suffering caused by Putin’s actions, decisions, and behaviors, I strive to be an ethical leader, considering the diversity of the airmen within my own sphere of
In this case, the creator is the British government, and therefore the poster also uses ethos in order to appeal to the audience with credibility. The government is wishing “a happy new year to all our gallant soldiers”, and this shows that the government is very positive towards men who join the army, and that they want them the best. Since the government is governing the country they could be expected to have a lot of experience in the field of war and therefore know what is best. Thus, their word choice of “gallant” and the word “victory” in the horizon have greater credibility because the audience sees the government as a respected authority. The audience is not part of “our soldiers” and therefore the government are not directing positive words towards them, which contributes to the bandwagon
His actions sent a message that he was to be respected no matter what. Also, the fact that he contended with the top man drove his point home: he demanded respect. A man capable of capturing the respect and admiration of an army is a man capable of leading an army; inspiring them, stirring them to bravery, to courage, to wrath, to love, to sorrow, to indignation, to arms, to war. He understood the importance of the way the men viewed him, and knew exactly how to manipulate this to his advantage. Achilles was socially aware, whereas Agamemnon neglected his social
In the history books, George Washington was considered a great man because he was calm in battle. It was never far from his mind to envision himself as a hero and a conquistador. "There [was] a persistent feeling in his correspondence as well as in his children 's writings that people like Thomas Jefferson, who shied away from battle, were not completely men" (Hendrickson 342). For Hamilton, it wasn 't the blood, the pain, or the suffering of battle that made it appealing to him. Hamilton viewed it as a stage for him to act on, and to display the qualities of selfless courage that would win him the honor, love and respect he so
He lets us know the other side of Washington, yes, he’s a great war General but he is not a great tactician or strategist. I thought it was clever because everyone thinks of Washington as being a perfect figure but instead McCullough describes him in a more realistic
In The Killer Angles, a strong leader during the American Civil War named Joshua Chamberlain was considered one of the most heroic generals for the Union Army. As I read the novel I cherish Chamberlain because he performs my leadership and thoughts of how I inspire people to recover. It is apparent that Chamberlain does not lack charisma and loyalty toward his soldiers. The leader must show he understands and fulfills the needs of his soldiers. For example, Chamberlain’s men understood he couldn’t control having to continue their march after a long day, but he showed he was willing to suffer along with them.
The Unions leaders had General George B. McClellan. He commanded the Army of the Potomac. He was very well loved by his men and always wanted the best for them but at the expense of the Union. He disliked abolitionists and the Republican Party and had very little respect for Abraham Lincoln himself but his biggest problem was that he was a perfectionist. Because of this, McClellan was almost always ready to move but not quite.
Listening to McLarty, it became clear that although him and President Clinton were close friends, he still saw Bill as one to be respected as more than a friend. He shared that he always called him Mr. President, because doing otherwise seemed like a disrespect to Clinton and his accomplishment as president. So when he said that before telling him about Vince, he clarified that the country was safe, I really connected the pull between Clinton being a friend and the president. There were many other stories that McLarty shared that showed his loyalty to President Clinton and Bill Clinton. I actually really enjoyed this interview, going into it I fully expected to be bored out of my mind, but I was pleasantly surprised.
