Willa Cather writes, "…Tiny Soderball was to lead the most adventurous life and achieve the most solid worldly success" (142). This quote once again expresses the theme of human spirit triumphs over adversity because Tiny was only a young hired girl at first who just wanted to help provide for her family, but later grew successfully despite the poor
He went around trying to break laws“ (pg 20). Dally likes to show that he can’t be changed by authority and wanted to show it by breaking laws and not caring for anyone or anything. He is careless for his actions and if Dallas Winston wants to do something there is no point of stopping him because he always gets
She had not come in contact with anything turmoil, her purity was not taken away from her. Until this event occurred. When older victims become targeted for a crime and they are completely innocent individuals, it is because they did not provoke the crime or they did what they could to not become a target (minding one’s own business, keeping a low profile and taking precautions (Karmen, 2013, p.138). JonBenet could not have provoked this crime as it was seemingly directed at her father, John, as the ransom note undoubtedly asked for his money, $118,000, the exact amount he received as a bonus that year. This young victim could not have understood what “minding one’s own business, keeping a low profile and taking precautions” was as she was a mere six years old.
Her later life improved situations for different people, such as herself. Many rewards and celebrations were given out to her for all the good deeds and for what she has conquered. Rosa L. Parks is one of the most influential people in the U.S history. On February 4, 1913, Liona and James McCauley had a daughter named Rosa. Her childhood was highlighted with major dropout after dropouts in high school which led to her persistants in her life from the beginning to the end.
Eleanor exhibited these qualities and so many more. Where some of the feats Eleanor accomplished are not as relevant to women today, such as establishing the Court of Love, her principals and the way she ruled both England and France are still present and waiting to be used as an example for modern-day leadership. Eleanor of Aquitaine took great steps in the way of women’s equality through her life, but now as all girls schools teach girls to be ‘founders’ it is more relevant that Eleanor has left a legacy that exhibits strength, resilience, and a character that one would not soon
Hamlet only claims madness because it allows him to say and perform actions he otherwise would be prohibited from, while keeping people from taking his actions seriously. This seems to be part of his initial plan that is first mentioned when he asks Horatio and Marcellus not to make any remarks in relation to his “antic disposition (1.5.192).” Hamlet’s madness allows him to talk to Claudius, Gertrude, Ophelia, and Polonius in a manner unsuitable for a prince. He is often disrespectful and insulting in his remarks. Although his acting backfires during his speech to Gertrude, Hamlet is able to severely criticize her for her actions because she thinks he is insane. During the play he also makes many sexual
He knew it would most likely never change, so his solution was to kill himself. He wasn’t thinking about his family or his clan, just about himself. Philippians 2;3 says, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than
In the writer 's opinion Macbeth is a good guy and is not capable of the bad things he is doing. He is just getting pressured into doing wrong. For most of the time villains are always evil and are doing wrong without other people making them do it. Macbeth is being convinced to do all of these things and he is not coming up with the ideas on his own. He is a puppet in his own life.
Macbeth is more similar to Othello towards the beginning of Macbeth but becomes more similar to Iago by the end of Macbeth, for similar to Othello, Macbeth, after murdering Duncan, feels incredibly guilty. However, unlike Othello, Macbeth’s guilt disappears as the play continues and is replaced with fear and paranoia. Macbeth starts out very different from Iago, for he is not cunning and is unable to lie, but he quickly becomes more similar to Iago as the play continues. Towards the beginning of Macbeth, Macbeth is similar to Othello, for they both feel incredibly guilty for committing murder. After Macbeth kills Duncan, he is overwhelmed with guilt.
‘Iago is such a disturbing villain because he seems to have no real motives for his evil.’ How far and in what ways do you agree with this view? Iago is nothing more than a devious mastermind and Machiavellian of the Shakespearean tragedy, Othello. Whilst Iago does try to communicate multiple reasons for his motives in wanting to destroy Cassio and Othello these are mere rationalisations and excuses to provide justification for his evil actions and can only be accepted when analysing Othello on a surface level. Looking into Othello further we can see that Iago is a power thirsty character that dwells in his corruption and evil which makes him such a disturbing villain. Iago gives a sheer numbers of excuses to try and prove his ulterior motives, conveniently adding new reasons for his hate every time he needs to encourage Roderigo to do something for him.
