After reading about the Salem Witch Trials in The Crucible I noticed that they especially lacked the right to equal justice. There lives were very limited and structured. They did not read a lot of books meaning they could not gain a lot of knowledge. The Puritans did not celebrate any holidays such as Christmas, for example. In Miller’s essay, it says that kids must be treated as adults.
Furthermore, an outsider is a character that is set apart from the established cultural pattern. The most character that was an outsider was Franky, Bernice, and the soldier. Therefore, Franky didn’t feel like she wasn’t part of any club “we”. Bernice is part of the family, but again she’s not part of the family because if they ever move or go somewhere out of the town she can’t go. The soldier didn’t know anybody when he came back in town and he felt unnoticeable because nobody said anything to him at all.
Socrates welcomed a “real emotion,” (Mosley 3). Socrates does not believe that he could not get a job at the store because he did not have a telephone or car. He asks Ms. Grimes’ to, "Just send it in." Ms. Grimes pulled the application away from his face and said, "All right. But it won 't make any difference."
In Cathedral, the speaker at first is very uncomfortable with the idea of having a blind man stay at his house. He is a very shallow person, never gives much thought to anything, and he does not try to connect to his wife on a deeper level. At the end of the story, the blind man and the speaker are alone, and the blind man asks him what a cathedral looks like. The speaker says that he cannot describe it, that he does not believe in God, so a cathedral would not have much importance to him. The blind man then has the speaker draw what a cathedral looks like, and he placed his hand on top of the speaker’s while he drew.
The biggest thing they will say is that no one really saw Father Flynn with Donald thus concluding they were along together. Sister Aloysius: “You help a private meeting with him at the rectory.” (Shanley 31) Since no one else saw them, there is no other witness to say what happened between the two of them. Though it can also be argued that since no one saw them, there is nothing to say that Father Flynn committed such an act with a child. The other big claim that could be made towards his guilt is that he left the school when Sister Aloysius stated that she called his old place of work. This could be stating that he ran because he was guilty, but if he was then chances are the bishop would have believed her and he wouldn’t have gotten a promotion.
There was no warning, no dramatic police report, nothing that resembled the movies I watched growing up. I shouldn 't have been surprised, seeing how Yuba City was so insignificant to the rest of the world, but I suppose deep in my heart I was disappointed. I remember walking through the halls, not running, as if the hall monitor was still watching. He was dead. Most everyone was dead.
For the duration of the whole film O! Brother, Where Art Thou?, Everett does not once receive any hospitality or even give any. There are occasions where there is a chance to create the respectful guest host relationship, but all efforts are concealed by the use of subterfuge. The lack of respect by Everett on those who he encounters on his journey, is the overlaying reason as to why the book is better than the
Christian is deeply goal oriented. Because reaching the Celestial City has a life-or-death urgency for him, he has little time or energy for lesser matters. Even his family shrinks nearly to insignificance in his mind as soon as he leaves for his journey. He never mentions his wife or children to his travel companions. At the Palace Beautiful, he shows some emotion when one of the four mistresses of the house inquires about his family, but he does not bring up the subject himself, nor does he return to it later.
I walked right into his house, not thinking about what kind of traps may be there. I had been shocked that there there was no lock. Then, I suddenly stepped on some kind of branch or button or something like that. Something fell from on top of me. I never found out what it was, however I got stuck.
Penelope, Telemachus’s mother, hardly comes out of her bedchamber. Telemachus, being the only child, was left all alone with the responsibility of trying to manage the household. At the beginning of the book, Telemachus can barely speak up for himself and didn’t dare to raise his voice at the suitors. He didn’t even give orders at his own
The locks are old on the doors and there are no guards about” (64). The manner in which people are sentenced to the Palace of Corrective Detention does not allow for any civil liberties or rights for the accused. If a person in power sentences another person the Palace of Corrective Detention, there is nothing that person can do about it. The Palace of Corrective Detention is a harsh and unfair place. On the other hand, modern-day U.S. jails seem to be more democratic than the institution of punishment in Anthem.
When Bilbo opened his eyes, he wondered if it was as dark as it was with his eyes shut. Bilbo couldn’t hear, see, or feel anything but the stone of the floor. Bilbo got up until he touched the wall of the tunnel. He couldn’t find anything up or down, no signs of goblins or dwarves. Bilbo was far from certain even of the direction they had been going in when he fell.
