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.
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.
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.

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 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. First of all I dismembered the corpse.
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. Because Curley
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
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.
Some masters were evil foxes who sent people to inquire their slaves how the master was. As long as the slave’s master heard any slaves hated him, he would send people to punish slaves who told the truth. Due to this, most slaves universally said their master was kind and they were contented instead of telling the truth. The frequency of inquiring caused slaves began to trust their master was nice, and finally those slaves enslaved themselves. Moreover, giving the heavy work to slaves did not only help the master getting more money, but also destroyed slaves’ will.
There were a few rare sympathizers, however, who identified with Jodi Arias’ anger at being used and lied to by a man and truly believed she murdered him in a fit of rage (Keifer, 2015). This would make the proper ruling manslaughter, and not premeditated murder, as the law dictates different punishments based on the premeditation, or lack thereof, of the killer. These sympathizers could argue that there was not enough mercy awarded by the court due to Jodi’s apparently sympathetic situation. What is the proper balance between mercy and justice? Should justice overrule mercy?
Totally agree with you Scott eventhought at the beginning he didn 't sound that insane, cause for example sometimes others people have eyes, body parts , etc, that bothers us just to even look at. However, after he make the decision to kill the old man and worse to dismember his body that 's when he became completely insane, and because the guilt was so strong he coudln 't resist lying to the officers been scare that he was gonna get cut he just started confesing to his crime. So yea hi was completely insane after killing the old man, but at the beginning to me was something normal in
When questioned about the type of person Adnan was, many responded with “the Adnan I knew, couldn’t have done it” in reference to Hae’s murder. On the other hand, the court painted Adnan to be a possessive and controlling ex-boyfriend and even called him psychopathic. Psychopaths are individuals that posses a specific set of personality traits and behaviors. Psychopaths often appear normal and friendly to others but are self-centered, dishonest and lack empathy. Psychopaths provide a good first impression but are impulsive and very deceitful.
The court dismisses the plea quickly because “the justice system ignores psychosocial complexities and histories in favor of black and white definitions of right and wrong” (Myers). The justice system in this time very rarely accepted pleas of insanity or mental illness. Capote wrote that “after an hour’s conversation with the defendants, the doctor rule[d] out that neither man
