Back to the concept of the coin toss-- she is technically given a chance to avoid death, but in reality her death is inevitable, as the rules of violence make her responsible for what her husband, Llewelyn Moss, did not do. This is important for the readers to consider as they forge their own morality- the readers must recognize that it is not them, but rather their circumstances that carve their own morality and ethics. From the perspective of morality, Chigurh is viewed as a ruthless, serial killer, but through the use of futile violence, it can be argued that he
In the entirety of the structure of the text Chavez provides support for nonviolence and then provides the reader with hypothetical situations with the use of the word “if.” The contrast of these hypothetical instances becomes ingrained into the reader's mind throughout the repetitive use and give the association of goodness with nonviolence in comparison to loss of self and emotion by violent ferocity. Seen in the example below, “When victory comes through violence, it is a victory with strings attached. If we beat the growers at the expense of violence, victory would come at the expense of injury and perhaps death. Such a thing would have a tremendous impact on us. We would lose regard for human beings.
In the book “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Harper Lee uses negative connotation and vivid symbolism to persuade that being judged by an outward appearance or backstory can affect a person negatively and make the judgers feel superior. Lee uses an outstanding amount of characters to persuade this but some distinctive characters that she uses is Aunt Alexandra and the Cunningham’s. Lee also uses the Ewells and Tom Robinson to persuade her meaning. In chapter twenty-three Scout asks Aunt Alexandra if she can play with Walter Cunningham but Aunt Alexandra declines the request and does not give Scout permission to play with Walter. She explains why plus starts to judge Walter.
This becomes evident throughout the story in terms of what Waverly’s character reveals. The characterization of Waverly Jong in Amy Tan’s “Rules of the Game” delineates the importance of foresight and the ability to anticipate the outcome of situations, especially in the case of her mother. In analyzing Waverly’s acknowledgement, “I learned why it is essential in the endgame to have foresight...all weaknesses and advantages become evident to a strong adversary and are obscured to a tiring opponent..for the whole game one must gather invisible strengths and see the endgame before the game begins.” (3), the reader is able to decipher how Waverly’s thoughts work to elicit a greater meaning
Virginia Woolf does an exceptional job of using the rhetorical appeal of Pathos through the except. Pathos is the rhetorical appeal that is used to appeal to the emotions of the readers. I believe that Ms. Woolf is using pathos to creating a warning signal about how dangerous society is through this excerpt. The story opens up with, “It is nature that is the ruin of Wembley;...”, which can be interpreted in the way
He says “I have no spur / To prick the sides of my intent, but only / Vaulting ambition which o’erleaps itself / And falls on th’other”(ActⅠScene ⅶ) Macbeth has enough self-awareness to realize the dangers of killing the king yet his temptation to complete the prophecy is too strong. Another example of ambition is when Lady Macbeth plans the murder of Duncan and continually urges Macbeth to do it in order to fulfill the prophecy and desire. Lady Macbeth puts aside her reasoning and lets her temptation run her actions. Ambition is what drives the both of them to commit such atrocities. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth wanted to be powerful so bad that they were willing to compromise their morals in order to be successful.
The image of the “gates of hell” is meant to symbolize how people can turn to violent conduct, thinking that they would be able to get what they want immediately. This may be the case, but if they just take a moment to think about the negative repercussions their actions will have, they may think twice. The two paths used in the collage are used to demonstrate that there is always two ways of reaching a goal: by following "the right path", where even if it takes longer to accomplish your goal, nobody is going to get hurt, or by following "the wrong path", where individuals get what they desire, however, the path may not be pleasant for
Lady Macbeth is calling to the spirits to assist her murderous ideations and to do that make her less of a women and more like man which will then fill her with deadly cruelty. This supports how she feels, about needing to be manly to commit these horrible
(Harper 266) This supports the topic because first Bob Ewell made the decision to try to harm Jem and Scout that was his decision, and it was Arthur(“Boo”) Radley’s rash decision to kill Bob Ewell. Clearly, these are showing a great example of moral courage. Harper Lee knew that conflict would pull out more examples of moral courage especially when there is a conflict and the characters would have to make difficult
All humans are bound to do something bad or life changing, but whether it is permanent is a decision that all people make. One who can be perceived as good, can also desire to feel the thrill of a kill. Humans have a tendency to lean towards the decision or action that is most exciting. If those choices are on the wrong side of the scale, it is up to a person to make the right decision. One who is seemingly good, submits or chooses evil first by being tempted to act corrupt, then participating in nefarious activity with enjoyment, and finally, by knowingly taking part in an event that leaves one permanently labeled as evil.
