Within the forest, the Puritan civilization ends as the darker forces of the shadow express themselves. (Maus 2005) In the story of “Young Goodman Brown”, the traveler carries a serpentine staff and towards the climax of the story, he makes a new stick by stripping twigs, wet with dew. However the moment his fingers touch them they withered and dried up. The traveler is as destructive as they come; he is feared by Puritans. The whole point of the Puritan’s journey into that forest, although each individual’s is different, is so they can get a glimpse of this traveler and what he is capable of and in turn realize how much they actually need God.
In the excerpt, Julie of the Woods by Jean Craighead George, Miyax is stuck in the outskirts of the cold wilderness in Alaska with no one after her father has not returned from sea. She has not been able to catch food and rely on the wolves to catch her food, but the wolves have been ignoring her since. Now it is up to Miyax to develop a way, for which the wolves will bring her food for her survival. Following Julie of the Wolves comes Hatchet. Hatchet shares a similar fate of being abandoned with the protagonist Brian, who shortly figures out that for his carelessness, his food and shelter has been vandalized by a mere skunk.
I walked into my parents room, only to see that they were not there. I saw them in the basement packing only my clothes, I look outside the window to see angry Whos’ everywhere. They were throwing fire torches and had pitchforks at everyone 's houses. There was a huge thunder storm too, I didn 't know what was going on. My mom’s was looking at my dad, crying and saying last words.
In the end, Roger Chillingworth is worth nothing more than a social outcast who lost true and peaceful relationships with people, and even obtained hatred from his own wife. Through this allegory, Hawthorne teaches his readers that revengeful purpose in life can drive oneself out of the healthy social life. Nathaniel Hawthorne, through the allegory of Chillingworth’s life in Scarlet Letter, rendered the conception that vindictive life can be a melancholy. Compulsion with revenge only led Chillingworth to emotional corruption, hauled away various elements of life, raised anger, and drove him away from relationships with people. After all, would it be a wise determination to live with, or even possess, a spiteful mind preoccupied with revenge?
One example of greed is when Giles Corey states that Thomas Putnam of accusing his neighbors of witchcraft: “This man is killing his neighbors for their land!” (Miller 96) Thomas Putnam disputes land boundaries with John Proctor: “What anarchy is this? This tract is my bounds, it’s in my bounds, Mr. Proctor.” (Miller32). There’s a lot of outrage going on in Salem. For example Abigail gets mad a John Proctor because he refuses her love. “Abby I may think of you time to time but I will cut off my own hand before I ever
John Proctor also says, “you know in all of your blacken hearts that this be fraud...we will burn together.” By saying “we will burn together,” John is creating an image of darkness and fire for the reader. Mary Warren says, “he wakes me every night, his eyes like coals to sign the book of the Devil.” Mary Warren saying that shows Proctor having a cold, hard, devil like eyes. Danforth says, “we burn a hot fire here, it melts down all concealment.” The Crucible is considered as a Melting Pot. Danforth statement is ironic since they continue to condemn innocent people. What imagery is presented to the readers in Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.
This line truly highlights Chillingworth’s life-goal of completely destroying Hester and her lover, especially by bringing them down to his level, bringing them over to the “dark” side. As the song continues it refers constantly back to the fact that the subject wants all colors and any expression of joy to be altered into the blackness that surrounds him. “I see people turn their heads and quickly look away” is a direct compassion to how the Puritans in Boston
Grendel’s death at the hands of his barbaric challengers produced a revengeful mother, whose only vow is to cause suffering to all those responsible… They say that a mother's love is stronger than distance, more powerful than time, and can be transcended to the grave. I watched in disgust as those cruel creatures celebrated the wrongful death of my beloved son. Murders are what they are; their crimes are unjust and gruesome, yet they believe they are the hero’s. I don’t recall a time when I thought so highly of myself, that I would celebrate my murder of another. I cannot rip my eyes away from the sight of the dreadful celebration; their smiles are disgusting, they have drank enough mead to feed an entire continent, and they are prancing
Many died because of fire in the Holocaust, when Nazis burned bodies into the crematoria. Fire can also be a representation of hatred as it makes the prisoners hate the camps even more. Even though the camps are already terrible, the sight and thought of fire makes the prisoners seem more vulnerable to death. This is shown in the book when Elie thought that he was going to die by the
Due to the mass hysteria the blame quickly fell to the rich Jews. It is stated that, “Jews throughout the world were reviled and accused in all lands of having caused it [the plague] through the poison which they are said to have put into the water and the well” (Document 7). The nation was in need of answers so when the Jews were pointed out as a scapegoat all of Europe followed. Though sadly the blame was not the worst thing to befall the Jewish people. In Document 7 it is stated that, “On Saturday - that was St. Valentine’s Day - they burnt the Jews on a wooden platform in their cemetery.
