Madailein McLenna Connors English 11 4B 13 January 2016 Tit For Tat Written in 1952, Arthur Miller wrote a play known as The Crucible as an analogy to the strike the senator was putting on all the communists soon after World War II. Arthur used the Salem Witch Trials in the 1690’s to show that the same tragedies and sentences that befell people during the McCarthyism trails. Arthur used the Salem Witch Trials as a metaphor to draw national attention towards the doings and executioners of the McCarthyism propaganda. The innocent people during the McCarthyism trials relate to the situation a character known as John Proctor undergoes in the play.

Whereas, in The Cask of Amontillado, the reason behind the murder is revenge, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” Additionally, Montressor’s jealousy is another reason because of which he murders Fortunato.

The Mirabal sisters are very important figures in Latin America because they became a symbol against victimization of women. According to "Women's Political Participation in the Dominican Republic: The Case of the Mirabal Sisters", Robison stated that, "Trujillo's appetite for young women was legendary... there was no way to refusing... [Minerva] Mirabal apparently rejected his advances by slapping him... this action represented a sheer calamity for the Mirabal family, who were subsequently harassed, imprisoned, and ostracized by their neighbors" (6). As a result, this action serves as a symbol for the sisters’ courage and defiance against the regime because they knew the consequences of not obeying Trujillo, but still took the risks.
Letters in the Chronicle of a death foretold The Chronicle of a Death Foretold is a novella by Gabriel Garcia Marquez that revolves around the narrator 's attempts to put together the pieces of memories of a murder that took place in a small Latin-American coastal town twenty-seven years in the past. This passage from the novel takes place in the end of chapter four where Angela is said to have written weekly letters to Bayardo for seventeen years until the day he showed at her workplace with a stack of unopened letters. In this passage, Garcia Marquez uses symbolism, characterization, and magical realism to highlight the significance of the ritual of writing and receiving letters as opposed to the importance of the content. Garcia Marquez manipulates language to make the idiotic sound normal, using the insane amount of letters to put more emphasis on the unexpected arrival of Bayardo and to showcase the importance of the ritual of writing the letters. The use of magical realism in this passage by Garcia Marquez serves to shed light on the reunion between Angela Vicario and Bayardo San Roman.

In the novel titled, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Jacobs, wanted to write about her experiences as a slave and how she managed to escape from slavery. This novel can be entitled to many themes, but the theme that touched me the most was about all the slave women and how they were treated. I think that Jacobs emphasized how for slave women the situation was the worst because they were always viewed as sex objects. I believe that Harriet Jacobs thought that women were expected to obey their masters all the time and had so much responsibilities to do. Jacobs gave reference to all of this by providing her life events; for example when Dr. Flint told her, “you deserve it… to be under such treatment… forget the meaning of the word peace.”
In “The Black Cat” Poe writes, “Goaded, by the interference, into a rage more than demoniacal, I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain,” when talking about the savage murder of the wife. This narrative is cringe worthy because it would be absolutely excruciating to have an axe driven into one’s skull. Edgar Allan Poe details the nasty specifics of the torture and murder of Fortunato in “The Cask of Amontillado” when Montresor chains Fortunato in the chamber filled with niter and walls up the entrance, torturing and leaving Fortunato to die from whatever lethal element can stop his heart first. . This is brutal because Montresor says, “I heard the furious vibration of the chain.
