/ War is kind,” to showcase the fact that war is ugly and painful not only for those who perish in it (the men whose deaths are described), but also for those who grieve because of it (the women whose lives are forever changed by war). Additionally, verbal irony can be found in stanzas two and four, in which Crane chooses words that, taken literally, speak of the glory of war in order to highlight the shame of it. For instance, Crane writes, “These men were born to drill and die / The unexplained glory flies above them / Great is the battle-god, great, and his kingdom – / A field where a thousand corpses lie” (Crane 8-11). Here Crane is stating that no man is born to simply drill and then die, regardless of what the rhetoric around the glorious battle may claim, and that such rhetoric (“Great is the battle-god, great, and his kingdom”) hides the true hideousness of war (“A field where a thousand corpses lie”). Overall, “Do Not Weep, Maiden, for War Is Kind” is an expression of Crane’s sadness over the glorification of war and death.
The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever. "( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) The meaning is moral pain is same as physical pain, and when someone suffers a lot of moral pain, he can not live too. Except love, Werther is pessimistic when he faces other problems. He signs: “That the life of man is but a dream, many a man has surmised heretofore; and I, too, am everywhere pursued by this feeling. When I consider the narrow limits within which our active and inquiring faculties are confined; when I see how all our energies are wasted in providing for mere necessities, which again have no further end than to prolong a wretched existence.”( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) When he does not meet Charlotte, he always writes pessimistic things in the letter.
Throughout the centuries, the political interpretation of Dante 's oeuvre has been subjected to various metamorphosis that are strongly connected with the political-ideological situations coming from the historical momentum in which they occurred. Consequently, in modern days, Dante has been credited as a political author who promoted the birth of the rule of the law, ensuring also the progress of the modern legal consciousness that is the base of the secular State equipped with an its own ethics. Therefore, in order to understand why Dante 's oeuvre, in a well-defined historical momentum going from the 18th century onwards with peaks into 19th and the early 20th centuries, was subjected to numerous metamorphosis strongly connected with
A War Within War is inevitable, war is not peaceful nor accepted by many. War is the act portrayed by many men and women who believe they’re making a difference, that one less life in the world is nothing more than the act of taking it. Wars come and go claiming they’re making a difference in a positive way liberating a certain territory, whilst destroying it. War is the true equalizer between life and death, fairness and irony. The novel “My Brother Sam is Dead” symbolizes many of these traits.
Pathos is “the quality of speech or written work that appeals to the emotions of the audience.” For instance, “plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.” The words ravaged, and destroyed are emotional words to describe the unjust actions the king did to them. Also it is demonstrated in, “Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.” This proves the colonists opinions on the king, showing how he is not worthy to lead their uprising nation. Ethos is “the character and credibility of the writer in the eyes of the reader.” An example of this is, “We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions..”. The author shows their credibility by stating they are representatives of the United States of America. The authors also portrayed this by, “In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms.” By saying this, the authors show they have tried to set agreed terms with
The poet describes the irrationality and chaos that exists in the core of Grendel’s being by saying how “no counsellor could ever expect fair reparation from those rabid hands” (157,158). This description indicates the repercussions of greed and how it can cause immense irrationality as all the laws and morals set in place in a society crumble when faced with this primitive emotion. The “counsellor” in the above-mentioned lines represents the wise and elderly who offer their wisdom and help the society retain its moral virtues in the poem and, thus, the “counsellor” could symbolize the Anglo- Saxon civilization and the rules and regulations that govern it. Grendel goes against the societal norms and values as he is not expected to be fair
Dissension is not worth combat. Collier and Collier try to demonstrate that war does more harm than good, no matter how “right” one side may be. In the novel, the authors contend that war fractures society, and divides country-men. The horrific deaths in war are unsettling and extremely detrimental to the cause. Equally, unfairness will always be a consequence of war.
In the novella, Leaving Gilead, Pat Carr shows how war destroys people 's character. Integrity is extremely hard to find during war. Geneva is bossy and wants the best for herself and not for the more important things in life. Yankees are destroying reputation and lively hood. War brings out the worst in people.
During this speech Henry appeals to the Pathos side of an argument by using emotions to try to convince his knights of their wrong doing. King Henry says “But, oh, what can I say to you, Lord Scroop? You cruel, ungrateful, savage, and inhuman creature! You who had access to all my thoughts, who knew me to the inmost part of my soul,...” (Sparknotes n.pag.) He uses emotional words and sayings like “ungrateful” and “inmost parts of my soul” to really drive home that fact that he felt personally victimized by their betrayal.
Development of corruption morally challenges the protagonist and results in the inevitable falling ‘victim’ to the provoking surrounding forces of evil. The representation of universal notions in Shakespeare’s, ‘King Lear’ demonstrates the interactions and psychological behaviours possessed by humanity as Lear rationalises suffering as an achievement of redemption. Lear’s self-pity proclamation of his own misfortune ‘doomed’ upon him in Act III resulted from his essential failure - his fatal flaw. The consequences from his metaphorical blindness and inability to distinguish between appearance and reality whilst claiming he is ‘a man more sinned against than sinning,’ allowed a perfect opportunity for the surrounding ‘forces of evil’ to easily oppose his regime; hence, the following downfall of the tragic hero. Projection of this flaw from his actions prompts the underestimation of humanity and capability of ambition subsequent to the denial of traditional roles causing disturbance to the ‘natural world’.
