I occasionally heard the boys make crass and insensitive comments about me. They were working on the supposition and assumption that I wanted to be on the football team for attention. I heard them say that my ambitions for being on the football team were grandiose and just for show. You could say that they thought that my acts were thought to be pretentious. They believed that I didn’t sincerely want to be apart of the football team.
The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158). He wanted to live no longer because the monster threatened him and he was just done with life. “Feels very sad, down, empty or hopeless.’(NIMH). Victor felt sad during this time because “I thought of Elizabeth, of my father, and of Clerval.”(Shelley 162). Victor was long away from his “sister”, his dad and his friend, he just wanted to see his family and friend.
In this show Friday Night Lights, the quarterback, Jason Street, was in the middle of one of the most important high school football game of his life. He made a mistake by reading the defense incorrectly, making him throw an interception. With all the pressure his coaches put on him and his frustration, he ran up to the defender, without being taught the correct tackling technique, and broke his neck just to be paralyzed for the rest of his life. His family could not afford to pay for all the medical bills, so they did what they had to do. They sued the coach for not teaching him how to tackle because the coaches got too caught up in the years before when they won championships, feeling like winning was their only responsibility in the city of Dillon,
“A lad whose face had borne an expression of exalted courage…was, at an instant, smitten abject…he saw the fleeting forms…Directly he began to speed toward the rear in great leaps.” (Crane 75-76). During his second battle Henry was tired and unlike the first battle he did not fall into the “battle sleep” where the fighting became automatic for him. Instead Henry was afraid and since he had not yet found courage he saw the other soldiers fleeing and so he fled himself. At first Henry believed that to obtain courage you needed to be wounded and after he fled without a wound he believed everybody would see him for the coward he was. “He wished that he, too, had a wound, a red badge of courage” (Crane 100).
All the blows to the head affect the brain in many ways that it can cause some mild brain damage. Dr. Bennet Omalu is motivated to know more about football and the blows to the head that the players get. During the film, Dr. Bennet Omalu tries everything to get people’s attention, but it only worsens to the point that people try to threaten him. He starts to give up and says how he shouldn’t have been the person to find out about the brain issue. Some other football players already start committing suicide just as the years go by.
The narrator assumes forgetting her lover will make the pain better and is angry at her heart for not allowing her to forget him. She wants to forget him as soon as possible “Haste! Lest while you’re lagging” (7), once again using an exclamation point to indicate anger and hurry, wanting the pain to end. The narrator is angry at herself for not being able to forget him and letting him get to her. Dickinson may have used this poem to express her feelings about an unrequited love interest and the pain that comes with it.
They also both provide facts that back up the reasoning for each answer. In the article, it is said that football can causes diseases including brain damage, Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, and can also cause memory loss if you get hit to hard. But that can happen anytime it is just less likely. The person who supported football has seen field hockey players get hit in the head with balls and sticks and they don't even wear helmets. Only some of the field hockey
‘Remains’ by Wilfred Owen is a war poem that presents an unnamed conflict where the soldier shoots the looter, but is unsure whether the man was armed or not. If the latter case, the shooting would have been unnecessary and would be thought as an act of murder. This acts as an emotional conflict arising to the soldier due to the situation. Similarly, in ‘Poppies’, the mother suffers from an emotional conflict arising from her yearning for her son as the mother seems to be speaking to the memories of her son. By the use of metaphor and imagery, both poets offer an emphasis on the idea of internal conflict arising to the persona of each poem.
He fears that death mocks him for not being able to approach the woman and believes that he is going to die in this apprehensiveness. Throughout the poem, Eliot alludes to several different works to give the reader a better of understanding of the extremely anxious Prufrock along with society as a whole. First off, not only do the illusions help the reader form an opinion about Prufrock, but it also reveals how Prufrock sees himself. He thinks, “No, I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be” (111). Based off this thought, the reader knows that Prufrock looks down upon himself.
