Author Kurt Vonnegut, captivated and astonished its readers with a dystopian society novel about absolute equality known as no other than Harrison Bergeron. Harrison is the prime example to the rebellion that can occur in a completely equal community. Although human equality is something desired by society, in the novel, Harrison Bergeron, Harrison is a primary example of how equality can affect a person's life. By showcasing intelligence, symbols, and equality with lack of freedom there is an understanding of what could be possible in an absolute equal community. To imagine a world where everyone's intelligence is alike is quite worrisome.
They are purposely of an ugly look. In the scene where Evey is about to be assaulted, McTeigue uses a mid shot to set the scene. The fingermen have light shining down on them and directly on Evey’s face making Evey look like the protagonists, and the fingermen the antagonists. This scene explores the government’s abuse of power and explores the corrupted view of justice the government possesses, which the audience interpret as injustice according to the general human interpretation of natural justice.
When Harrison rips off his steel handicaps and restraints the physical beauty and strength he revealed showed the people on the stage set, and those that are watching television that underneath their own restraints, they too are also talented or lovely like Harrison was. He tried accomplishing something no one else wanted to or could do. He sent a powerful message to all of society in an attempt to set people free. Although in the end, nothing changed because the ruler Diana Moon Glampers refused to allow anyone to be above everyone else. It is quite ironic though that if everyone was equal in the year 2081, then why was Diana Moon Glampers above everyone
To support my answer is the killer of Harrison. “Handicap general, a woman named Diana Moon.” Others may say that since Diana had a higher rank than most, everyone was unequal. This isn’t true for ranks or power had nothing to do with talent. Like I discussed before, anyone could do anything (in this case any job) because they were all equal. So anyone could have become the handicap general, making Diana still equal to everyone else.
Equality strips society of its freedom and individuality. The undercover superheroes in "The Incredibles" and the handicapped citizens in "Harrison Bergeron" are individuals that confront this exact issue. Both stories incorporate a strict, elaborate system of equality that when disrupted, impose consequences that the characters must suffer. Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron, and The Incredibles, directed by Brad Bird, both address the implications and futility of total equality. The texts use a satirical approach of exaggeration and reversal to convey this message.
Mercutio’s speech falls under the category of a soliloquy, which means he speaks his thoughts aloud regardless of any hearers. In the middle of his speech, Mercutio gets carried away from the crowd and bellows to the heavens by himself. Speeches can turn the dynamic of plays on their heads. They evolve characters and make them change their old beliefs. The speech contributes to Mercutio’s characterization by illustrating his dark features and demonstrating his care for Romeo.
Another role identity example is by the way he talks, it is the bad boy attitude that he conveys by the tone of his voice and by the choice of his words. “ Being bad feels pretty good, huh?” (Hughes, 1985, scene 36) This quote shows where Bender is coming from. Since when does being bad supposed to feel good in normal society. “ screws fall out all the time. The world’s an imperfect place.”(Hughes, 1985, scene 19 )John Bender sees himself as falling out of normal society, he feels that he is no longer apart of it and justifying it by saying “The world’s an imperfect place” (Hughes, 1985, scene 33 ) One could compare his mannerisms to Jim Stark in the movie Rebel Without A Cause.
Odysseus believes that his words are final and his actions are always right and just, but he often lets his ego take over his rational thinking, causing harm to his crew and tampering with the gods’s plans. His team could have returned home safely for it is the wish of Athena and the other heavenly gods who sit next to her in Mount Olympus, but Odysseus takes it to himself to anger and blind Polyphemus, the monstrous son of Poseidon, loved by his father but hated by the people, thus sabotaging their entire plan. After being blinded by the heroine, Polyphemus throws giant pieces of rocks at Odysseus's ship, almost destroying them all at once. But instead of retreating for safety, Odysseus continues to taunt Polyphemus and “[calls] out to the cyclopes again, with [his] men hanging all over [him] begging him not to”(Book 9, 491-492). His sense of pride and arrogance makes him neglect the pleas of his men even in these dire situations.
He states that all men were created equal as he says, “But this is a truth that applies to the human race.” King also uses ethos when he describes the prejudice and hate that he’s witnessed in everyday life. He then describes what could be everyday life, with children playing together and becoming friends regardless of race or nationality, saying, “Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.” The two men use ethical influence to demonstrate why they are correct and just. Finally, King and Finch use pathos. King pulls at his listeners’ emotions with his words of hope, living up to the speech’s name of I Have a Dream. He tries to rouse his audience, proclaiming, ”Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.” Atticus Finch tries to get the jury to realize that Tom Robinson hasn’t done anything wrong.
Or in other words, “you’re a coward if you run away”, Lincoln gives his audience somewhat of an ultimatum. Not only does Lincoln push for the representation of the previous soldiers, but he is also pushing to save the great nation the thought that “all men were created equal”. Lincoln pulls at the human condition that everyone wants to belong and builds hope in the men and woman that are not yet free. By creating an emotional tie to his audience, Lincoln can connect to them on the most intimate level and gain their trust. Making his speech strong and worthy of
