Derek did say a couple times that Ben was a mean to people he didn’t like such as Jacob and himself. What was the most damning piece of evidence against Jacob? Was there anything that you felt exonerated him? At First I thought that the knife that Jacob had was a piece that was very hard to disregard, however I feel that the story that Jacob wrote resembling Ben’s murder from the porn site that he always goes on basically was his confession in a sense. To write a story about a murder right after he’s very skeptical, but to know details of the story based from the murder is something that need attention because its shows that he could have been involved.
The final way that shows how labels can affect people is negativity. There is so much negativity in this book, like when the book mentioned how the Ewells were not liked. “ The Ewells have been the disgrace of maycomb for three generations.”(Lee 30) This is true and nobody in Maycomb likes the Ewells. The only reason that people were on their side for the trial was because Tom was black and the people were racist that stood against him, They didn 't stand by the Ewells because they liked them. This book shows how labels can affect almost everyone and shows how you can be judged on almost anything.
For many people that think Titus Andronicus is all about violence, well it is mainly from the criticism from “The Pequod” where it talks about violent act is the style and context in which it is executed whether we respond to violence with shock, laughter or satisfaction like for example the death of Titus’s sons in battle and how he buried them. Some of the lens that were used was revenge and feminism also stereotypes, revenge is a major part of Titus Andronicus and getting even but not every succeeds in doing so. Feminism comes in when Lavinia got raped by Tamora’s sons Demetrius and Chiron and how they took advantage of her body, she is represented as an object or thing. Additionally, how Tamora is an sexulised character, including by virtue of what trying to understand if Tamora is liberating or in male fantasy. Tamora

Sacvan Bercovitch gave a talk in 1996 titled “The Scarlet Letter: A Twice-Told Tale,” he discusses how the secrets impact Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale. He clarifies that part of the reason this secret is challenging on both characters is because of the weight the Puritan society places on it. Hester is ridiculed for her adulterous act and Dimmesdale is unable to profess his love due to the restrictions placed upon him. If Dimmesdale is to confess what he did, he would surely be punished (Bercovitch 12). Hester and Dimmesdale’s grief is a direct outcome of the unforgiving implications that the Puritans put on adultery.
This topic seems to fit almost perfectly to the novel “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. Both have to deal with prejudice and racism but “To Kill A Mockingbird” is also about growing up. A theme both also have would be that fear and hatred of another person are caused by not trusting and lack of tolerance. Some examples would be that Tom Robinson wasn 't given a fair trial just because he was a person of color. People just seemed to assume that he actually raped Mayella without any evidence.
The reason for violence the narrator used was because of the old mans eye. The narrator had no problems with the old man, but the narrator kills him just because of the old mans appearance. The violence the narrator has done led to his concealment of the body. The narrator tries to tell the readers that he is a sane person by all the precautionary actions he had taken to conceal the body. The readers will be able to tell that the narrator is completely insane, when he thinks it is okay for someone to chop up a dead man: “I worked hastily, but in silence.
He was especially threatened by him when he threatened to tell everyone what really happened when Curley gets his hand crushed. Slim likes Lennie and Curley feels obliged to listen to him. Not only does Curley represent the theme of man's inhumanity to man, but Curley's wife does as well. Curley's Wife is not the example of a perfect wife. Curley and his wife are not the loving couple everyone admires either.
The rest of the village refers to Satan as the “Black Man,” because of urban legends. However, Pearl is one of the few people other than her mother who sees the true evil inside of him. Chillingworth’s actions further poison Dimmesdale’s already rotting soul as revenge consumes him. The “darkness,” represents how revenge drove a man from plain anger to having a demented soul that would be unrecognizable to his past self. In conclusion, the light and the dark work as several common archetypes to form a complex series of comparisons throughout The Scarlet Letter of which allow reader’s to read farther into characters and their
I will also give an analysis on why the character Brandon feels so much rage towards his sister Sissy, what that says about us as a society, and the impact these false views can have on women. As I previously stated Brandon the main Character of the movie is a single man. At the beginning of the movie the audience is made very aware of why this movie called shame. Brandon is an extremely sexual person. Brandon doesn’t act like the typical sexual male in a movie though, yes Brandon has sex frequently but he does not seem to enjoy it.
