5. Haemon’s strengths in his argument outweigh his weaknesses, by far. Haemon’s strengths include his use of metaphors, quotes of the people, respectful treatment of his father, and an organized argument. Haemon’s weakness is his exit from the argument. By threatening his own death if Creon kills Antigone, Haemon seems weak.
Andrew Jackson was a poor Carolinian orphan who continually served his country despite the adversity he faced. Under his control the US won two amazing battles, the battle of New Orleans and the battle of horseshoe bend, providing the United states with land and international recognition. With his patriotic history Jackson won the election of 1829 and due to his love of his country worked to keep the union together despite the driving force of issues such as nullification. In 1832 the South Carolina legislature held a convention declaring the tariffs of 1928 and 1932 utterly null and void. The delegates believed the tariffs favored the north and threatened that their enforcement in South Carolina would make South Carolina seceded from the
The team is made up of both people from Point Pearce and Point Victoria. This is the only thing in the town that isn’t racist. At the beginning of the movie, Gary is known as the “gutless wonder”, but the game saving sacrifice that Gary made, rewarded him with a small amount of respect from his Dad. When the seasons rewards are being given. A small change in names for who wins the best player of the season makes everything spiral out of control.
One of the main reasons as to why he won the battle is because Brutus let words get the best of him. Antony is smart in a way that shows he can manipulate his words for his own benefit. Antony did not see Brutus’s suicide coming, but fortunately his death convenienced Antony immensely, earning him victory. To start this off, he mocks Brutus by saying, “In your bad strokes, Brutus, you give good words. Witness the hole you made in Caesar’s heart, Crying ‘Long live, hail, Caesar!’” (5.1.30-32).
C. I believe that Richard is right in thinking this is a victory, because as a young boy, he has successfully rebelled against his cruel father, by not actually rebelling. It is a victory because his parents were shook by his action, but they couldn’t punish him because all he did was obey his father’s orders. D. Wright’s mother is a positive influence on his life because she teaches him important life lesson such as learning from your mistakes, self defense, and she even starts teaching him how to read. On the other hand, his mother is also a negative influence because she forces him to fight boys and leaves him and his brother home alone, without watch, or care everyday. I believe that her positive attributes are more apparent because she
Which is seem when Miss Maudie says, "Well, did you know he 's he best checker-player in this town? Why, down at the Landing when we were coming up, Atticus Finch could beat everybody on both sides of the river." (Lee, 120). trying to persuade Scout and Jem that Atticus isn 't just a boring dad, he might not the be most fun or active but he is caring and that 's a quality some fathers do not have. As oppose to the town of Maycomb 's gossip, Atticus stands up for what he believes is right.
He was actually very intelligent he graduated at the top of his class at Emory university. The way I look at him is that he was courageous and adventurous to just go out and follow his dream. This is why I think Chris McCandless is courageous. When Chris burned what money he had left I thought it was courageous because he was trying to get around without money and how hard it would be. By Chris burning his money and trying to brave the world without money show´s that he´s courageous because do you know how hard it is to get around without money?
“Life doesn't cost him a thought” (Heaney 1536). This quote shows bravery because he is brave and confident in himself that he will fight to the fullest when he battles monsters it's like he's not scared of death and real quick to risk his life to save or help others. “Yet the prince of the rings was too proud to line up with a large army” ( 2345-2346). This quote shows bravery because it shows he’s too proud to fight with an army he rather fight one on one and that shows that he is brave and not afraid. “I shall win the gold by my courage, or else mortal combat, doom of battle, will bear your lord away” (2535-2537).
Crooks dreams of being equal to everyone like he was then, but he knows it is unlikely to happen. Despite this, he makes efforts to have the equality he yearns for by reading and trying to learn. Steinbeck displays how George’s vigorous desire to own a ranch inspires him to work harder. George has a similar dream to Lennie and concludes that they can work together. He excitingly realizes, “‘Look, if me an’ Lennie work a month an’ don’t spend nothing, we’ll have a hundred bucks’” (58-59).
They were leaders and took a big step. Secondly, during the court section in To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch knows he probably will not win but he still wants to try, for equality and to get rid of Maycomb’s usual disease. “ Atticus Finch won’t win, he can’t win, but he’s the only man in these parts who can keep a jury out so long in a case like that. And I thought to myself, well, we’re making a step--it’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step” (Lee 289). Atticus is a fair man, as well as a leader.
According to the Webster’s dictionary, a hero is defined as a person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities. Atticus Finch defines heroism as “when you know you’re licked before you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” Atticus was the only one that stood up for Tom Robinson, a black man accused of rape. He did it, because he knew it was the right thing to do, even though there was a large possibility that he wouldn’t win the case. He did this, knowing that there would be consequences, so he warned his children against judging adults and other children.
