Housing a Jew in Nazi Germany could have lead to severe punishment, nevertheless, Hans decided to help Max in his time of need because he knew that he needed to stick to his commitment.“‘Papa,’ she whispered, ‘Papa’ and that was all. He could probably smell it. He lifted her gently from the bed and carried her into the washroom” (63). In this passage of the book Liesel wetted the bed, Papa discovered this and simply washed the sheets without saying a word. Furthermore, this demonstrates how people trusted Hans with pertinent information.
He must witness all the inhumanity. Humans are either going above his expectations by saving lives or going way below them by killing and starting wars. Death finds it haunting how humans can show great acts of kindness and compassion as well as horrible acts of cruelty. In the story Death sates, “I’m always finding humans at their best and worst. I see their ugly and their beauty, and I wonder how the same thing can be both.” (page 491) 6.
The speaker is still focused on him/herself as seen in the use of “I” and “me”. The feelings of guilt and grief begin to surface after the speaker’s murderous rampage, they say, “If only they’d all consented to die unseen gassed underground the quiet Nazi way.” This loaded sentence brings the poem full-circle again, speaking of the gassing and referencing Nazis; however, it seems to be a charged accusation to the woodchucks themselves, as if the speaker is accusing them of bringing out all of this evil because they didn’t choose to die easily when the speaker was being
Later in the book the Creature finds himself in great happiness: “I grasped his throat to silence him, and in a moment he lay dead at my feet. I gazed on my victim, and my heart swelled with exultation and hellish triumph; clapping my hands” (Shelly, 102). The Creatures G-d complex continues with the happiness of a murder. Additionally, in both the Creature and Victors moment of G-d the use the words “lay at my feet”. This symbolizes how Victor and the Creature believe that everyone else scared and completely submissive to them.
Most would see that word and think of dark, horrifying things; most people would not think of love or happiness, and that makes logical sense. In The Book Thief, Death is the narrator, so he tells the story from his point of view. So when reading it, and finding it is about the power of love, it is quite ironic. It is a type of situational irony, Death, who has the power to make humans souls leave the Earth, in love with one. Death expresses his love for Liesel many times throughout the novel, starting from the beginning.
The use of such passionate words and clever placement of italics allows Shelley to portray sheer hatred in two sentences; “Nothing in human shape could have destroyed that fair child. He was the murderer!” (Shelley 63). In this excerpt the use of such charged words mean the difference between anger and indifference. For instance, this is the same passage with some words changed: ‘Nothing human could have killed that kid. He was the killer!’ Just changing a few words can make all the difference here, and Shelley hits the mood right on the nose.
Cheating is very wrong while it is not illegal is is still bad to do to another loved one. In the world they live in they could of been shunned or have been kicked out of the town if the government found out. John Proctor had his future in front of him and it wasn’t good. He never realized what he was doing until it was over, his affair with Abigail would help cause the suffering of the Salem Witch Trials. The sin in the past was affecting them now and they were not taking it good.
Quiñano, Julianne Grace D. November 13, 2015 BSP 201A Literature 1 Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing (Proverbs 12:18). This passage from the Holy Bible is never wrong because ever since God created the universe and until know, all human beings have already experienced being hurt with the words that were thrown to us. Words are powerful that it can cause big changes in anyone’s life. As I read the bestselling novel of Markus Zusak entitled The Book Thief, aside from realizing how powerful words are, I realized also that being an author of a book is strenuous. It requires creativity, lots of courage, perseverance and of course experiences.
Beatty is puzzled and troubled by the fact that he can not make sense of the literature, and for this reason he wants to die. By killing him, Montag frees Beatty from the shackles of knowledge and allows him to move on into an ignorant and peaceful state of mind. Montag may have only burned Beatty because he was an obstacle, but the repercussions of this event makes it a renewing use of fire. Beatty is released from his life filled with burden, which is what makes this positive. Not only is Beatty’s death an example of this side of fire’s duality, but Montag and the rest of the firemen watching the woman set her house and self on fire is also an example of renewal.
From his perspective, keeping them locked up was for the best and to show the world that they could survive. Rex’s family saw his moral decision as very irrational, and outrageous. Consequently, his decision made from his twisted morals was the cause of the families suffering. Which is why the other family members tend to have a feeling of resentment towards him. Rex said, “That was merely a matter of seeing how far you would all go to survive” (Bodeen 171).
Even him asking about his future will not change the fact he has killed and hurt many people just trying to get to his dream. Him also messing up could of got him fired, which would have had George gone just as well. So, the money they tried working for just goes down the drain once again. No matter how bad he has tried to do better, he gets himself stuck in something that will never get him to the freedom to happiness. Today Lennie would have been treated much better if he actually how people there that understand his issues.
Everyone who was close to her father were dead including his mistress, and his two beautiful daughters. It is as if the curse is with the family as long as there are still living members. (for these part, instead of describing everything, try to use some quotes) Beli was the first generation that survived the curse. She was not dead, but she had to suffer everyday as long as she is still alive. We could interpret this as, the curse will wipe out the family immediately.
It seems unbelievable that an entire family would allow themselves to be slaughtered the way it happens at the end of A Good Man is Hard to Find. However, because the characters of the story have very set, predictable personalities, the reader can use textual examples to extend these characteristics to the ending of the story. Analyzing each character shows that they do, in fact, act completely in character when The Misfit kills them off at the end of the story. This analysis will focus on the behaviors of June Star, Bailey and Grandmother. June Star is an almost cartoonish representative of a rude, spiteful child, though she’s perceptive enough when she wants to be.
In The Book Thief, a historical fiction novel by Markus Zusak, the narrator, Death, says; “I 'm always finding humans at their best and worst. I see their ugly and their beauty, and I wonder how the same thing can be both” (Zusak 491). Humans are complex beings with the ability to hold so many emotions, thoughts, and feelings. Death finds himself astounded by how they can be so beautiful and ugly at the same time. There are many things that are beautiful about Liesel Meminger, but then again just like anyone else, she also has those few ugly qualities.
In conclusion, people in The Crucible lie for their personal interests, their tunnel vision haunts them in the sense that it comes back to get them in the end. This is shown by the fact that john died because he was not willing to live for false sins. In his shoes choosing to die was easy, choosing the harder right between the easier wrong is all depending on how you look at it. The consequences from the wrong choice will make your life harder while sticking to the harder right choice will make your life
