The great Gatsby symbolizes trauma that one mahy experience after being in a war. Whenever his trauma kicks in he makes the audience think that something teribly happpened to him during the war. The war showed us the many aspects of Gatsby. He did not want people to know what he looked like which is why during his parties people wouldnt think a young handsome man like him would be “The Great Gatsby”, people always thoughts that Gatsby would be a old man with a white beard. Although he kept his indentity anonimous he threw parties
Caesars fatal death by his strong governing peers may have been because Caesar’s hamartia is his arrogance, and this is shown consistently through his life span in the play. Since Caesar has a strong political following and position in Rome’s state, he has much arrogance in his personality and this arrogance is his hamartia which has a fatal ending to his life. If Caesar was more cautious about how he treated other people with little respect then maybe his arrogance would not have been hamartia. When the soothsayer warned Caesar about the Ides of March, if Caesar was not ignorant and arrogant then he would’ve believed the soothsayer which could of saved his life. With Caesar being so arrogant he believed that nothing bad would have ever happen to him, but if he noticed but the signs of what was to come in the Ides of March and how suspicious Cassius, Brutus, and the other congressmen were then he may of not come to a fatal death.
While the Outsiders was more related to gang violence and the newspaper writers would always feature the rich gang, also known as 'the Socials' more often than the poor gang, also known as 'the Greasers.' Also, in West Side Story the gangs ended up being neutral, but in the Outsiders both gangs still despised each other. The similarities are that both movies were held in America, both movies had 2 gangs, 3 people died, and many of the serious fights started off with a girl. In the Outsiders a Ponyboy was almost killed because he spoke to the girlfriend of a member of the opposing gang and in West Side Story they started the fight because they did not want Tony and Maria to be
He never got his bestfriends Hackett’s body to his father because the narrator also ended up dying. The way this story relates to the society is because in this story he made a big mistake that he could not help. In life people make mistakes and sometimes you can fix it and sometimes you just have to deal with the mistake that happen and just hope for the best and sometimes the mistake that has been made is not so bad after all but it was bad for him because it killed him. You never know what is going to happen in the mean
I think this isn’t because, the ghost of the king said, “Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature” is meaning he did some bad stuff when he was alive that he is not proud of (DOC.A). Also in the Treatment of Gertrude, hamlet accidently killed Polonius thinking it was the king spying on them in front of Gertrude, before Polonius dies he says “O, I am slain!”. Right after that Hamlet told his mother, Gertrude, that the new king killed his father, she didn’t believe and told him to be quiet that she couldn’t handle it. After that happened Hamlet sees the ghost of the king again, saying that “To speak to her, hamlet” (doc.
Like Oedipus, Okonkwo is a tragic hero because his story starts with him being strong, feared, and a lady-killer. Unfortunately, he then kills his son and a court leader which leads to his downfall and ban from his home. Hamartia is the characteristic of a tragic hero that leads to his downfall. Okonkwo’s hamartia was the fact that he does not express his emotions. His lack of expressions and emotions led him to kill his son and “mistakingly,” a court leader.
He knows that the school doesn’t want him to be there anymore, his roommate almost beat him unconscious, and his parents will only be disappointed when they know that he has been expelled from yet another school. For Holden, it seems like there is no one else to turn to, except his younger sister Phoebe who he can’t see unless he goes home. Teenagers all across America feel this same sort of detachment from the rest of society. Only one thing going wrong could cause the rest of our worlds to collapse. Holden ended up trying to live on the streets when he ran out of money, and as the story progressed, he dug himself into a larger hole of loneliness.
Although the firm had the name of his brother, Nathaniel Zucculini, he had willed it to Carson, after his accidental death by tripping over the bridge in drunken conscience (his body was never found). Carson looked like any other white, but his records behaved like a perfect villain. Villainy was uncommon to him, but his firm had slipped away two previous cases, by ‘donations’ to the District Court. But this was not all fun and games. Their defence lawyer was a tough nut, but the whole country was against
He was a person who gets angry really fast and humiliates other people mostly his opponents by calling them as mummy. Gorilla etc. When it comes to his personal life, He was not faithful to his wife. One of the great Opportunity he received was the participation in Olympics. The biggest threat to him was the cancellation of his boxing license which occurred due to rejecting the proposal
His father was abusive and corrupt. Ellis said that he has absolutely no respect for his father because the things he has done in his life and the lack of want to change. He said he would be willing to let his father back into his life if he was willing to change, and he wasn’t. This hurt Ellis even more because he felt like he was a disappointment to his family because at that point, he cut all of his family out of his life. This played a major role in the writing of American Psycho.
Most came to believe that he did not care for the economy or the people only what they carried in their pockets causing him to lose support for re-election. After his two successful foreign affairs, Noriega and the Gulf War Americans were definitely happy and showed their support for George. One event that weakened the American people and George’s relationship is when George lied about not having new taxes. WHen he clearly passed acts that established new taxes, this angered many
They are able to manipulate us and make us believe that we should take part in things due to the fact that its broadcasted and most people believe everything they here. They also supported the fact that racism is still at an all-time high because the majority of our senior citizens where alive when racism was a big factor in everyday life. Having power we see makes a tremendous difference and how money can influence people to agree with you. One example that I can think of off the top of my mind is Martin Luther King’s marches and how black supporters would get paid to disrupt his marches and make him seem like the bad guy when MLK was all about being peaceful and having peaceful
“He who does not work, shall not eat.” This is a very famous quote written by John Smith during his stay at Jamestown. He saw that the colony wasn’t doing so good and that by September half of the settlers were dead, so he took control over the colony and made some good and not so good contributions. He observed that none of the colonists thought they were going to do anything when they got to this new land. But he realized that in order for this settlement to be successful, the colonists were going to have to work hard and not look for gold. But a bad contribution he made to this colony was that he kept getting the colonists to invade the nearby Native Americans.
I think that the people responsible for the blueman’s death are his parents. The fact that the blueman’s parents were never there for him made a huge impact on his life and ultimately his death. Because never had his parents in his life to teach him responsibility, he irresponsibly drove on a rainy day and trusted a stranger to give him the right medicine, and kept taking more when he saw the side effects as said on page 24 paragraph 2. His father also pulled him out of school and that also prevented any chance of the blue man learning academically. Therefore, the jobs available were decreased and he was forced to join the freak show.
Equality broke the law of no being with everybody, and not being in the place he was suppose to be at, he also didn’t report it straight to the council like he was suppose too. Conformity took place here because he didn’t report it to the council like he was suppose to and broke the laws. “It was a great tunnel. The walls were hard and smooth to the touch, it felt like stone but it was not stone.” (Rand 32). After they discovered the subway they went they everyday and experimented with new stuff they got from the community and started learning about the unmentionable times.
