In Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 148”, the speaker is clearly a man that is in love, but seems to think of love in a negative way. He feels that love itself is tricking him and clouding his judgment. He sees his love as far better than everyone else sees her to be. He states, “O me, what eyes hath love put in my head/ Which have no correspondence with true sight!” (1-2). This shows how the speaker thinks he is being robbed of the sight of reality.
He was then sentenced to be stripped of the burial rite as decreed by the new king Creon. The second was Antigone who defied the decree and gave her brother the burial rite he was stripped of.

She was then sentenced to death by exiling her to a prison and leaving her to die. The third was Creon who was punished by their gods by refusing to give a burial rite to the dead and accusing and sentencing to death
Moving Toward Independence “The blood of the slain, the weeping voice of nature cries, ‘TIS TIME TO PART” (Thomas Paine, 1776). This quote from Thomas Paine’s pamphlet, “Common Sense,” urged Americans to claim their independence from the mother country. Prior to that, Samuel Adams emerged as the leader for angry American colonists whose loyalty to England had dwindled. In addition to these revolutionists, a very effective boycott of British goods was organized by members of the Virginia assembly acting independently after the assembly had dissolved. Thomas Paine’s writings, Samuel Adams’ leadership, and boycotting British goods greatly altered Americans’ perception of Britain and brought about the Revolutionary War.

O, she misused me past the endurance of a block! She told me, not thinking I had been myself, that I was the prince`s jester” (ii.i,227-228,230-231).This quote emphasizes that Benedick and Beatrice once loved one another but Benedick was fooled to he once loved Beatrice. Its shows that his love for Beatrice is lost when mentioned, “she misused me past the endurance of a block!”, demonstrates through his bitter connotation with the word “misused” implicating that Beatrice did not appreciate her love towards Benedick. Benedick feels that Beatrice has fooled him to think he was a joke because she used hurtful words as Benedick recalls, “she told me, not thinking I had been myself, that I was the prince`s jester”, that ended their relationship in an instant. The relationship that Benedick and Beatrice bitterly ended reminds when my friend Andrew and Susan got into a huge argument because of some words that she said without thinking it would hurt his
Sir Edmund Andros was deposed as a result of the Glorious Revolution, but shortly after the new monarchs installed new royal governors in an attempt to reassert royal authority. D cannot be correct, because the strange behavior of several adolescent girls in Salem village initiated the persecution of Salem’s witches. Also, the Glorious Revolution was during 1688 and ended before the witchcraft hysteria in Salem began in the winter of 1691 to 1692. So by then Sir Edmund Andros had been deposed and a new governor replaced him. In addition, Salem Village no longer belonged to the Dominion of New England which Sir Edmund Andros governed, but instead the more recent Massachusetts Bay Colony with an entirely new governor.

Soon after, in August, the Spaniards advance on the capital and ejected Joseph Bonaparte from his state as monarch, and from Madrid. The French had planned a counter attack to reclaim Madrid in December of 1808, this attack forced the government to retreat to
The most obvious character to refer to when discussing these themes is Aylmer. In one way or another, Aylmer displays all three of these themes. While the “darkness of the human heart,” is a, somewhat, vague term, in this story it could relate to the idea of love, “darkness” being the lack thereof. Aylmer exemplifies this version of “darkness” with his inability to love his wife, so long as she has the birthmark. While Aylmer clearly believes that his wife’s birthmark tarnishes her beauty, the way Hawthorne presents the situation is a bit different.

France colonized the middle of the United states from Newfoundland to the Rocky Mountains to New Orleans. This vast land colony was lost after the peace treaty following the Seven Years War. Forced to cede their American lands to the English and Spanish, France never forgot their prized possession. Choiseul’s plan to recover the lands started with the unrest in America before the American Revolution, “In 1766, Choiseul ordered Edmé Genet to send a naval officer-turned-spy— Sieur Pontleroy— to America to evaluate colonist dissatisfaction and determine whether French arms and money might help incite rebellion.”
In the American colonies between 1763 and 1775, a burning desire for freedom and to rid themselves of the perpetual taxation sparked within the aggravated colonists; leading to the people of the thirteen colonies to declare their separation from Great Britain. The British government placed a multitude of restraints onto the American colonists which limited the colonies ability to develop as a region in the process. In 1763 the Proclamation Act was passed which forbade the colonists to settle West of the Appalachian Mountains and required people who were previously living on that land to move back to the East.
