“All our service/ In every point twice done and then done double/ Were poor and single business to contend/Against those honours deep and broad wherewith/Your majesty loads our house: for those of old,”(1.6.15-18). This quote is expressing the fact that she is greatly helped by her gender, since she can be viewed super amieable and abnegation without it seeming
Also the movie leaves out some huge characters like Theo Theodorakis, Flora Baumbach, and Madame Sun Lin Hoo(who was the thief) and all of them have to do with emotion. In the movie Otis Amber is the inventor but in the book it is Mr. Hoo. Otis is also the personal investigator but in the movie there is no personal investigator. Even though the plots are mostly the same it is interesting why so many details were left out of the
The ending of In Cold Blood effectively shows the cruelness of death and how arbitrarily it chooses its victims. Nancy Clutter, a smart and intelligent young woman, had a full, eventful life ahead of her, and with the firing of a gun all that was gone. William Zinsser once said “good nonfiction writing should leave you one provocative thought,” and Capote’s in this novel is that life will go on,even after death. Even though Susan Kidwell Nancy’s friendship and future plans died the night she was murdered, Susan kept moving on and now attending the University of Kansas. Even though life brings you pain and suffering where it feels like the end for you, it too shall pass and life will slowly, yet surely, get better and that is the impression
Throughout the story it appears that Arnold Friend that maybe it is just a dream, but Connie describes him as being just a blur… that… had come from nowhere… and belonged nowhere” (p. 46) and at one point in the story what Arnold Friend was saying made no sense and as if he was having a different conversation. If Connie was on drugs it would make sense for things not to make sense. The quote on Arnold Friend’s car that says “man the flying saucers” was never specified, so the reader is left to guess its true meaning. According to The Routledge Dictionary of Modern American Slang and Unconventional English the phrase flying saucers means “a morning glory seed, thought to have psychoactive properties.” Perhaps Connie was able to invent her shadow self, Arnold Friend, with the help of morning glory seed. In the story, Connie looked at the phrase “man the flying saucers and she felt like “words meant something to her that she did not yet know” (p.) which if she was on drugs she might not be aware of the fact that what she is seeing is not real, but eventually when she is sober she will understand.
Norm holds the least ‘manly’ role in the film while his wife plays one of the most respected and powerful positions generally reserved for men. Norm shows his masculinity by supporting his wife and making sure she can get a good start to the day by cooking for her. Marge is a great detective, who catches and solves the case of the murders. Both Marge and Norm are very good at what they do and this role reversal in no way takes away either one of their identities as either male or female. Marge is great at all the ‘manly’ things without giving up her female qualities which is clearly portrayed in her pregnancy.
On page 7 of the novel, George says, “I could get along so easy and so nice if I didn't have you on my tail.” George enforces the thesis of nothing is permanent by telling Lennie that he could easily leave him and “get along so easy and nice.” Curley's wife was murdered, despite her having a perfect body. This shows that perfection cannot last forever because her perfection was ruined by
America was officially a “dry” country. Subsequently, the nation realized prohibition was not working and things began downfall. America began to change its mind, repealing the amendment because prohibition was unenforceable, nobody wants it, and legalizing alcohol would benefit our economy. Prohibition was nearly impossible to enforce, and people usually got away with breaking the law. “Smuggling from Mexico and Canada has been successful on a large scale because it is utterly impossible to patrol the thousands of miles of border..”(Haskin 1923)
As Katherine Callen King says, “...Antigone as she is lead to her death in punishment for disobeying her uncle’s order”. (Katherine King, The Women’s Review of Books), anything that happened to herself was by her own doing. A tragic hero is supposed to realize their flaw and consequences, while suffering a deep pain. She never acknowleges her flaw, she remains self righteous, and never suffers loss by her own doing, because she releases herself from the world through
Therefore, she was completely rational, doing only what was needed to achieve her goal, “She had it figured down right to the penny” (Süskind, 20). Thus she believes that she will have a private death, and that her whole life is reasonably planned out. However, Süskind employs cosmic irony – a literary feature in which the author deliberately manipulates events in order to lead a character in having false hopes – through having her die in the identical manner of her husband. This happens as a result Süskind allowing her to live much longer than she wished to. In the novel, Grenouille is consistently compared to a tick and parasite, thus characterizing him as someone who uses his human host to grow stronger, weakening them and causing them to die almost immediately after he is gone.
In reality, she is there to pay for the crime of causing the suicide of her young servant, who was pregnant out of wedlock. Brent, confident in her faith and righteousness, feels no guilt for her crime. The fact that she had servants leads the reader to believe she was upper class, though an actual occupation is not established. Her lack of guilt may be Christie’s way of explaining the blinding power of religion, especially since religion was often regarded as the most powerful regulation during Christie’s time, often creating and overruling the

One of the most challenging experiences in life is dealing with an inevitable truth. In Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird Mrs. Dubose finally reveals her hitherto unknown strength upon her death. Jem and Scout both witness - although to what extent they are affected is not stated- to what Atticus called “the bravest person [he] knows” and as result learn that true courage has nothing to do with guns. After her son’s brutal killing, Mrs. Till went above and beyond by demonstrating to others the audacity to oppose the prejudicial community - accelerating the civil rights by posing as example and statement in Keith Beauchamp’s documentary The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till. Despite Mrs. Dubose’s minimal amount of exposure within the novel
Some people have it real easy - there aren 't many Ephraims Goldmans, as my mum could tell you, nor lots of Henriettas Hineses, as testified by my dad. Actually, lots of parents these days opt for a very unique name for obvious reasons - after all, if the only clue to finding your soulmate is their name on your wrist, you 'd better hope they aren 't going to be called a John Smith. On the other hand, all these Phoenixes, Khaleesis and Caspians wandering around? Frankly, it can get really annoying. I had it pretty good - no James Johnson or Darius Maximus on my wrist.
The people found ways to have alcohol even in public view of law enforcement like hollow walking canes, hidden rooms in their houses, and false floors in their vehicles to transport it. Some of the problem was that states and federal authorities wouldn 't commit the resources necessary to enforce the Act. For example, the state of Maryland refused to pass any enforcement issue (The Volstead Act, 2015). The Prohibition agents mostly worried about crossing state lines with the alcohol, possibly because it was easiest to patrol. Making the alcohol illegally was called moon-shining because the hard alcohol that was made was called
The next murder was a woman named Cathy. Cathy was the only person that kept starr knight in line, and helped her through every problem she went through no matter how bad it was to find the solution. Cathy probably only did this because she was starr knights mother. That’s the next evidence. The most recent characters found out the next evidence was that it looked like the murder was going in a family line from his/her murdered victims, that they knew of anyways.
