But, as it turns out, she is telling the truth, and this just sickens me “‘You’re lying, you don’t remember’ cried the children” (2). That quote was spoken by the children in class as she told of the poem she wrote, and told them how great it was. But nobody believed her, so they immediately assumed she was lying and tossed her into the closet. They did not know the whole story because they were blindsided by their hatred and jealousy. Unfortunately, though, bullies do similar things in the real world, and they, too, don’t see the whole picture, similar to William, one of the classmates who lead the mob of bullying
Another example of the characters making illogical decisions because of their ambition is in the beginning of the play when Egeus takes Hermia, Lysander, and Demetrius to Theseus and asks him to force his daughter to marry Demetrius lest she becomes a nun or faces death. While Egeus uses the possible death sentence as simply a threat and does not mean to actually execute his daughter, his ambition does blind him from seeing his daughter’s feelings and
Antigone’s most important trait is also the fatal flaw that leads to her own demise. Antigone is so loyal ad determined to bury her brother that she would go against the word of the king to do so. It is because of this determination that she antagonizes Creon into sentencing her to death. Sophocles not only portrays Antigone as a tragic hero, but also as a martyr. She believes in something so much that she is willing to go against the law, and in turn die for it.
In All Summer In a Day Ray Bradbury shows us how the theme of isolation can drive people crazy. The reasons I believe this is because of the kids locking Margot in a closet showing that the kids exclude and bully her. Next reason is everybody despised Margot. Finally the reason that the rain never stopped making Margot feeling trapped.
In the story the narrator while in school, is given a dull old red sweater by her teacher witch she knows for sure isn 't hers, but she is put on the s spot and this situation makes her very uncomfortable that she 's unable to speak up and tell the truth because of fear from conqueseques she could face. “Only today I wish I didn 't have only eleven years rattling inside me like pennies in a Band-Aid box.” This quote refers to her keeping all her thoughts inside of her, also not being able to explain that the red sweater isn 't hers really is affecting her because she 's not being true with herself and others. “Mrs.Price takes the sweater and puts it right on my desk, but when I open my mouth nothing comes out.” This quote represents how sometimes no matter the age life hits you with difficult obstacles-moments that can be a surprise, and in this case for her it was a surprise that Mrs.Price put her on the spot by putting that red old sweater on her desk and she did not know how to react to this
She insults him and calls him a coward while also questioning his manhood which makes Macbeth come to a realization that not killing the king is the way of a coward and he is motivated to carry out the plan and murder the king because of Lady Macbeth’s insults and speech that she gives him. By successfully persuading Macbeth into murdering the king this shows that Lady Macbeth is controlling towards people and she can be a very manipulative person. It shows that she is the type of person that gets things done by manipulating other people to do her dirty work for her. Lady Macbeth can simply achieve her own goals by getting into anyone’s head and turning their own conscience against them in, which is essentially what she did to her husband. Macbeth would have never went through with killing King Duncan if Lady Macbeth had never persuaded him because he really does have a soft heart and is good and honorable.
While cooking or boiling water it is always said to keep children away, but like always or most often when parents aren’t cautious it is difficult them to pay attention to the food as well as their child. For instance, in a short-story written by David Foster Wallace called “Incarnations of Burned Children”, he writes about a child who’d also got burned by hot water, but in this case it had been with boiling water from the kitchen. Wallace wrote about a mother and father who went through a terrible incident with their child. It all started with a scream from both the child and mother. The mother had been yelling because she didn’t know what to do, so the father came in rushing to see what all the commotion was.
