In the end Wynne still accomplished his goals and saved his family; however, Oedipus lost his wife and mother, family, friends, country and throne, honor and sight. Oedipus was humiliated and exiled with no one, but the gods that ruined him to comfort him. Wynne lost Sharice, but unlike Oedipus he was not married to her, Sharice did not bear his children, nor did he cause her death. Oedipus caused his wife’s death by killing his father, his wife’s former husband, and slept with his wife, his own mother. He impregnated his wife; and she unknowingly, gave birth to his siblings.
“He is a sinner, a sinner not only against the moral fashion of the time, but of his own vision of decent conduct.” (144). This quote means that John Proctors reputation is being a sinner and has no respect for his conduct. John Proctor in the eyes of the towns people is a sinner and now he has to try and prove to them that he is a good person. “If you’ll notice, sir-they’ve known the women many years and never
People are selfish, people are treated horrible because of their religion, culture, race, etc. by all the horrible people in the world. Last, sometimes people are forced to do things, by all the mean and horrible people in the world. Most of the world is filled with evil people. Think
This is clearly seen in page 27 of Things Fall Apart when Okonkwo, the main character, is filled with rage when he finds out one of his wives has left his children unattended but and left him without a meal. After the wife returned, “he beat her very heavily,” proving that men had absolutely no respect for women (Achebe 29). Just like the Igbo women were treated poorly because of the lack of human decency that men had towards them, disabled people also face injustices because of
The final reason is that her father did not claim her as his daughter until the end of the book. A great law was broken the moment Prynne was conceived by her mother. “In giving her existence a great law had been broken; and the result was a being whose elements were perhaps beautiful and brilliant, but all in disorder, or with an order peculiar to themselves, amidst which the point of variety and arrangement was difficult or impossible to be discovered” (82). Hester Prynne, Pearl Prynne’s mother, broke a big law by having sex outside of marriage. This causes Prynne to fall out of harmony because she is a product of sin, making her disordered because she wasn’t conceived out of “normal” circumstances.
Since there were so many “young men her father had driven away,” it can be inferred that Emily’s father was a very unwelcoming man who did not believe any male was good enough to meet the Grierson standards (Faulkner 55). As stated by Victor Strandberg, “driving away her suitors so as to keep her housekeeping services for himself, Emily 's father has ruined her chances for a normal life” (par. 3). After the death of Mr. Grierson, all that Emily had left was herself and the house because of the seclusion her father created. However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her.
The treatment as a purchasable item already put women on unequal footing within any marriage born of an arrangement by the father that included money. In the marriage, the woman was not an equal or partner to the husband. Simply something that the man owned, and was had complete control over. This inequality was extremely dangerous, and left the woman completely vulnerable to their husband. Mills states that “After marriage, the man had anciently (but this was anterior to Christianity) the power of life and death overhis wife.
Segragation.One of the worst words in the entire human vocabulary.This word has caused people to be murdered,whipped,hanged,and so much more.There have been smaller cases where this is not always the case.However their impact on history is just as important as the darker side of this evil.Such as the various tales of these few men and women who put much on the line to stop this unreasonable action.These are the tales of heros. Rosa parks.Rosa parks was a extremely known activist and was known as the mother of civil rights.She was known as the mother of civil rights because of one of her most remember acts where she refused to get up from her seat on the bus.Rosa parks and just got on the bus on her way home after a long day,and refused to get up just because she was black and white people wanted her seat and three other african americans.The three got up,but Rosa stayed rooted to the spot.The driver went up to rosa and said,”Are you going to get up?”,but Rosa looked straight at the driver and said,”No’’.This caused Rosa to be arrested,but this began
Dido tells Anna to burn most things that he has left behind, but really this was a plan of Dido’s to kill herself. Dido states, “To whom do you abandon me, a dying woman, guess that you are-the only name now left from that of a husband? Why do I live on?” What Dido is implying here is that she has no reason to live because she is losing the man who she is married to. Aeneas does not think he has to stay because the real marriage ceremony did not occur. This is why when Dido thought they were married was her first death.
