“THE WAR PRAYER” MARK TWAIN The War Prayer," a short story or composing verse by Mark Twain, is a scorching arraignment of war, and especially of visually impaired energetic and religious enthusiasm as inspirations for war. The structure of the work is straightforward: An anonymous nation goes to war, and devoted subjects go to a congregation administration for troopers who have been rung. The general population call upon their God to allow them triumph and secure their troops. All of a sudden, a "matured outsider" shows up and reports that he is God 's flag-bearer. He discloses to them that he is there to talk so anyone might hear the second some portion of their supplication for triumph, the part which they have certainly longed for yet have not talked resoundingly themselves: the petition for the anguish and pulverization of their foes.
Tennyson then writes of a mistake that has been made in the battle plans, but no one calls out the captain on it because they are loyal. In the third stanza the reader can infer that the brigade has little to no chance of surviving and in the last stanza the author leaves the reader with the defeat of the 600. The author uses an immense amount of repetition in this poem giving the effect of a march or song to give the reader a feeling of being in the battle. The rhyme scheme of this poem also contributes to the sound of a military
For example, in Bruce Beresford’s 1980 film Breaker Morant, a filmic event has been completely designed to speak to a larger truth about the first war crimes trial in British history and plays into a widely held belief about the reasons for this trial. In the scene where Major Bolton visits Lord Kitchener, they discuss the proceedings of this trail of the Bushveldlt Carbineers. In conversation, Kitchener remarks that Kaiser Wilhelm II has protested the murder of Reverend Heesse, who is mentioned as a German citizen. He goes on to say that the German people support the Boer cause and the British government fear that they will enter the ongoing conflict, on the side of the Boers. This is why Lieutenant Morant, Hancock and Witton must be convicted at all cost, explains Kitchener and they must go to trail at once for the murder of the German missionary.
These words, used six times in his brief speech, holds power in the meaning it adds to the soldiers’ deaths. The use of dedicate in all contexts implies purpose and motivation; simultaneously, it ties together the purpose for which the soldiers’ fought to the aspirations Lincoln supplies for his audience to adopt. Once again, while invoking respect from the audience, he demonstrates his own respect for the soldiers and solidifying his honorary tone. This repetition also serves to create remembrance in the listeners’ minds, for if they remember the dedication of the soldiers daily, they will also work to achieve their
Wito is an eight year old girl living in the Philippines with her mother, once a famous pianist, and her father, a farm owner. In the beginning, Wito is concerned with the fact that she is unable to play the piano as well as her mother, this is a concern that consumes her everyday life. Wito’s mother is the victim of oppression due to her husband; this instance causes Wito to have an epiphany that helps her in completing her coming of age journey. Towards the end of the story Wito realizes that there are more complicated matters in her life than her being unable to play the piano. This relates to Hetty Dorval in that both Wito and Frankie come to term with the idea that growing up is a natural part of life.
The betrayer won’t be as broken as the betrayed, but the betrayed can learn from this a become a better person. The betrayer might come back and start all over, but the betrayed already learned from this, so he/she should think a little better than last
There is also a strong connection with cycles, the natural world, and, specifically, water. The moon’s presence within Fair Moon is no different from this classical depiction, irrevocably tied to water and related feminine tasks. This connection with water, indicating to the reader that this poem’s moon is also possessive of the other classical characteristics, is not difficult to find. The moon is “baht[ing]”, “pour[ing]”, and possesses “floods”
Four significant elements, listed from least to most important, are assessed for how they affect the same story told in two different ways. The least important thing to be kept or changed is that in both forms of “The Help”, Miss Charlotte, Skeeter’s mother, refuses to die. Although a futile act it may seem, as she in the end cannot stop the cancerous ulcers she has from taking her life, her stubbornness about her death, allows her daughter, Skeeter, to have the courage to accept the job she was offered in New York City, along with a push from Aibileen and Minny. This is the second least important element, as although there are more things that have been kept or altered between the two forms, it wraps up Skeeter’s part in the book, putting it on the bottom of the list. The second least important element in this book to be kept or change is How Minny left Leroy.
Never Give Up There are those people in life that will give up at the first hardship they encounter in life, but then there are those who will not give up and finish the fight. In the poem “Opportunity,” by Edward Rowland Sill, a man abandons his position in a battle because he is dissatisfied with his dull sword, and upon departing he snaps it in half and leaves it on the battlefield. A wounded prince who lost his own weapon, sees the broken sword and uses it as an opportunity to win the battle. In the poem Opportunity, a battle going on in a dry dusty plain. Men are fighting in a furious battle.
