Prejudice: Sneetches, Books, and Neurology Websters defines prejudice as “a preconceived judgement or opinion.” Prejudice is taking something, someone, or somewhere and judging from an opinion or the actions of one. A good example is the classic Dr. Seuss book, The Sneetches. The star bellied Sneetches are prejudiced against the bare bellied Sneetches for their lack of a star. This prejudice has little to no basis and is simply an opinion of hatred by the star bellied Sneetches. At the book’s climax a man cheats the Sneetches out of their money due to their prejudices.

For example, how he persuaded the crowd in his funeral speech. Overall, this eulogy was anything but heartfelt, and intended to change the hearts of many Romans. Overall, Mark Antony managed to achieve his goal of persuasion by showing the crowd the will, the body, and using sarcasm when speaking of Brutus. “But here’s a parchment with the seal of Caesar; I found it in his closet, ‘tis his will:” Julius Caesar’s will made a debut as one of Mark Antony’s main claims in his persuasion of the plebeians. In addition, Mark Antony addressed the will to the plebeians after they had cheered Brutus on moments before.
•Edmond Dantès: Protagonist. Edmond’s unequivocal happiness is cut short when his enemies, who are blinded by their jealousy and self-bitterness, plot against him.

The first line of the first stanza, “Bent double, like old beggars under sacks” uses a simile to compare the state of the soldiers to beggars; unkempt and dirty. Disgust and repulsiveness is instantly evoked, along with an image of old men with hunched backs and ragged dirty clothes, although they were supposed to be young and dashing. A similar effect can be seen on the seventh line of the fourth stanza, “Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud”. This quote contains two similes, both comparing the scene of the soldier dying to the horrifying and repulsive aspect of cancer and cud. By comparing the situation to cancer, Owen is comparing it to a loathsome disease that brings suffering, and by comparing the situation to cud; half chewed food, Owen is expressing his disgust towards the way the soldier is dying.
In the end, Claudius’s use of deception becomes too crafty for his own good when he plans for Hamlet’s death. Claudius starts off by calling Hamlet’s grief “sweet and commendable” (I.II.92), praising him for the “mourning duties to [his] father” (I.II.94). Then, Claudius contrasts his praise with a subsequent condemnation, calling it “unmanly grief” (I.II.100) reminding him that many have lost a father. He sides with the Queen’s

When Macbeth commits his betrayal, against Banquo, Macbeth hires other people to do his dirty work, similarly to how David commits his betrayal against Uriah. After Banquo and his son depart, Macbeth says, “Banquo, thy soul’s flight, if it find heaven, must find it out tonight” (Shakespeare 843). Not only does the statement confirm that Macbeth is infected with greed, but the quote affirms that his bond with Banquo has come to an end. In simple, modern terms, Macbeth is bidding farewell to Banquo. Heaven, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is a “place of the Deity and the blessed dead” (Merriam-Webster).
In “The Funeral,” the narrator Henry James shows condescending and playful tone towards the people attending the funeral. But not being focus on the actual funeral and drawing his attention to the people, he grieve at all, as you usually do in a funeral.
