Cyrano did many things that others couldn’t have done. He let another man, Christian, take credit for his own love because he thought that’s what he had for Roxane and that it allowed Roxane to see that love through him instead. He also fought in war with a “white plume” that showed he was not afraid to fight and avenge his own happiness and the other man, Christian. Although he was committed to doing what he thought was right and what he thought would’ve made Roxane happy slowly got him killed but in the end it was all for love and to show off his
When making this quick, traumatizing choice he listened to the first instinct his body told him, which was to save Delia even though the logical choice was to save Eunice. The text proves this saying ““The truth is” Uncle Nathan said, “I had kind of fallen for her”” (Summers 195). This shows that, even though he knew he should love Eunice, Uncle Nathan truly loved Delia, so when he had to choose who to save he chose what his heart was telling him. Secondly, Uncle
But then when William tries to bring back the truth, proctor hit him with the line “Aye, but we did not.” He will do anything to keep his problems undercover. Throughout the play things get worse and worse, finally proctor realizes that the only thing he can do is to
Sophocles still included Haiman, making him seem more heroic due to the fact that he defends her and kills himself over her body. People's minds get clouded by Haiman’s “heroic” acts while in fact Antigone was the real hero. How do we start progressing to the next step? Getting rid of sexism is such a huge topic today but obviously, there is still a huge amount of steps we need to accomplish to make our goals reality. The first step to change is realization.
Salva needed bravery. He found it in himself and used it to get out of the difficult position he was forced into. To demonstrate, the book says, “He knows it will be hard for me, Salva realized. He does not want to leave me there, but he has to go back and fight for our people. I mustn’t act like a baby I must try to be strong” (60).
King uses pathos to tap into his audience’s mind to think about the importance of promoting action now rather than waiting for others to promote it first. He ends his letter by stating that he “hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation”. (King Jr., p. 658) Dr. King is a man of great integrity and love. He wanted to bring his fellow brother and sister together as a nation strong and not divided. Dr. King thought to himself that maybe one day this nation will come together as one, with love in the heart and hatred in the
In the Odyssey, Odysseus struggles to turn away from material goods and the lure of fame,which often entraps him, but he fights through and emerges with love as his savior. The desperation installed in Odysseus by separation increases his appreciation of love and society, and it reveals to him the truth about kleos - it is a poison, slowly absorbing into the body without notice, and there is only one cure - risking it all to be with those he loves. As Odysseus progresses through his journey in the Odyssey, his priorities constantly change from kleos to obtaining human contact, but love triumphs and he learns that with love comes all he desires. Kleos is often all the people think about and influences the opinions and actions of both the
However, this truth remains unknown to Parris, so one has to analyze the situation from his point of view. Disregarding the truth, the first thing Parris worries about is his own name and reputation, instead of his daughter’s wellbeing. Thus, having his estate and daughter involved with witchcraft and unnatural events obviously threatens his rank as a revered. While arguing with Abigail, he says “my ministry’s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousin’s life”(Miller, 11), explicitly revealing how he places the importance of his name before Betty’s own sake. Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft.
Even though Charlotte was not the most beautiful woman, she found abundant success in her talents. The Victorian era placed a woman’s value in how much money and beauty she possessed. In Charlotte Bronte’s coming of age novel, Jane Eyre, outward beauty deceives as it ironically represents a true evil in oneself. The beautiful Reed family, who resides at Gateshead, has cruel hearts as they boast about their luxuries as they deny them to their “outsider” blood. Even though Mrs. Reed promised her deceased husband that she would care for Jane as if she was one of her own children, Mrs. Reed encourages everyone in the house to never hesitate to tell Jane that she is a
He lost all his powers but got them back after realising his flaws, his ego and pride. He showed us that heroism is in stepping forward for someone else and not being selfish. He sacrificed his pathway to reach to his loved one for his kingdom, just like any army man leaves his family for his country, that is heroism. It taught us the value of loyalty and the importance of our responsibilities. Thor also taught us the value of the most important thing which is ‘hope’, we learnt another thing from this movie which is “we never realise our mistakes till we are punished and then when we realise we are able to stand again”.
