She does this by developing a protagonist, Equality-72521, who seeks to have the privilege of exploring and taking risks. Equality-72521 lives in a society that shames him for being curious and having an imagination different from the others around him by telling him that he should not be different from others. By placing him into this situation, Rand proves to her readers that the only way to success is through trust in oneself, even through failures and the doubt of others. Rand depicts the theme that self-reliance on one’s own thoughts, actions, and curiosity is the key to success in her novel, Anthem, by showing her readers that taking risks is necessary to learn new things.
In Harrison Bergeron, people who are above average have to wear handicaps to make everybody equal Kurt Vonnegut used satire in Harrison Bergeron by exaggerating the people in this society in the future. One example is the handicaps that everybody who was “above average” had to wear. In this society, if you were very smart, you would have to wear a handicap in your ear that went off every 20 seconds, so he couldn’t think beyond the average human’s abilities. In this future world, the handicaps are supposed to make everybody equal. Some examples of handicaps would be weights you would wear if you are very strong, a mask if you are very pretty, spectacles with wavy lenses if you have great eyes.
It is very important to make the readers feel like they are actually in it. With that, it helps keep them engaged in
The true meanings to these words are not glorious like the people with power show them off as, instead they are horrific like his body. Joe wants to have a “sign over himself and the sign would say here is war and he would concentrate the whole war into such a small piece of meat and bone and hair that they would never forget it was long as they lived” (Trumbo 215). Nonetheless, the government would never show Joe’s body to the public as Joe wants them to. The truths of war would only cause permanent damage to the minds of the public. Therefore, they manipulate the public and soldiers by not telling them how horrendous war actually is.
The reader sees what Michael sees as he tells the story as he knows, it from his point of view. I used this topic sentence to show that this incredible story was being told to the readers through Michael’s point of view. This story being told by Michael makes the story completely different than it could have been. For example, if this story was being told from Dr. Hatch’s point of view the reader would be drawn to believe his beliefs were right because he would have been the protagonist of the story. Since this story is being told by Michael, the reader sees the real evil of Dr. Hatch and sees him as the antagonist instead of the protagonist.
A main concept in the play Antigone is pride. In class, we discussed the topic of pride and watched a Ted Talk along with it about the fear of being wrong. It relates to King Kreon because as a leader, he wanted to be powerful and make his own decisions. This turned for the worse however, when the decision he made was selfish and went against the people’s beliefs. Kreon’s son Haimon warned him before the execution of Antigone that it was not what the God’s wanted.
Therefore, Beowulf is even more of an ideal masculine hero because he adheres the the Anglo-Saxon gender roles. He outright rejects feminine traits ergo, his character propagates ideals to the audience. In addition, the ability to sacrifice one’s life is tied directly to masculinity. When Grendel’s mother is seeking revenge for her son and needs to be killed, Unferth does not portray manly will. Thus, he is described as “not man enough/ to face the turmoil of a fight… and to risk his life”(1468-70).
The Symbolism of Montresor’s Wall Symbolism is the use of symbols to signify ideas and qualities by giving them symbolic meanings that are different from their literal sense. With this in mind, it is clear that Montresor’s wall should not only be considered literally, but figuratively as well. The purpose of the wall in the literal sense is obviously to trap Fortunato and to hide his body. The figurative purpose, however is to provide a coping mechanism for “the thousand injuries [Montresor] had borne as best [he] could.” (Poe 1). The passage is unclear about what misdeed Fortunato incurred upon Montresor, but it can be inferred that it bothered Montresor so much that the idea of burying Fortunato alive seemed to be an appropriate revenge.
In most places, we believe that people are created equal, and therefore everyone should be treated equally. In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, people aren’t treated equally, where the more intelligent people are removed from society either by death or by prison. During the novel, Montag takes the life of someone who was threatening his property, life, and the life of someone else. He was justified in doing so as well, as most people would like to live and enjoy the different things that they own. Although it is unknown whether Beatty would actually kill Montag or Faber, Montag did end up killing him, and because it was out of defense of himself, his property, and someone else’s life and property, Montag is justified in his actions.
Characterization is when an author creates memorable characters whose words, actions, and feelings reveal human truths. S.E. Hinton uses the craft move of characterization in order to teach readers that Dallas Winston hides his love and feelings in order to protect himself from getting hurt. S.E. Hinton uses characterization through Dallas’ feelings.
Every twenty seconds or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantage of their brains.” (Vonnegut 1). This quote shows they would suppress their smartest people to an average level of thinking. This society does not want someone to grow in any way and realize how bad life is. Similarly a sufficient amount of the same points can be made in Anthem, they are just accomplished differently. In Anthem “equality” is not purely shown, but is attempted.
This extends to fidelity, mutual support, and shared listening. They also prize having fun with and sharing values with their partner, as well as spending quality time together. The ESFJs primary means of achieving outer control is through Extraverted Feeling, which serves as their dominant function.
