Why is the book titled "Jacksonland?" According to the author, he called it this because of how Jackson strove to make the map his own (p. 8). The book also talks about other people like Chief Justice John Marshall, Andrew Jackson 's ally Lewis Cass, and even his biggest rival, Henry Clay (p. 7). Many will agree that the book is mainly on Andrew Jackson and his many accomplishments including making money off of real estate and his victorious wins at the battles of New Orleans and Horseshoe bend but the other half of this riveting narrative includes John Ross, who was a presiding officer and held the same position at the Cherokee constitutional convention that George Washington had held in the meetings that produced the U.S. Constitution forty years earlier (p. 121). If Ross was an important figure along with Jackson, why is he not included in the title of the book?
We honor him for his bravery and his courage to impact our world in the right way. President Bill Clinton paid tribute to Robinson in Shea Stadium because of the impact he had on pro sports and on our world, during his time he was a symbol of hope and he still is. He was honored for all he did in this world and the impact he had on all. He did what he believed in. In Robinsons letter to the president he addressed how the world just keeps saying be patient and then wouldn’t do anything, he called out the president on how he isn’t helping everyone, he is hurting everyone.
The reason some readers may give him that name is for all the killing Macbeth does in order to become king. The audience believes that Macbeth was under realization of what he was doing for his own good. They also consider him an antagonist because Macbeth told Lady Macbeth “To know my deed ‘twere best not know myself” (2.2.71). There the audience knows that Macbeth understands what he did but he is trying to forget. But many see him still as a tragic hero because his flaw is what allowed him to proceed with the killing.
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.
This sin is used in order to show how pride in one's own self may lead to unwanted repercussions. Because this tale was written in this time period, boasts and pridefulness were common. The use of pride develops the characters from being a band of brothers to becoming each other's murderer.
The character of Francis Phelan in Ironweed by William Kennedy is haunted from decisions from his past. Many could argue that his thought processes of these actions are moral, while others believe they are instinctual. For example, the situation in which Francis killed Harold Allen, the scab. It could have been a conscious moral decision that taking the scabs life was the best way to protest or it could have been the subconscious natural instinct that told him to lift his arm and throw the stone. It is believable that Francis is controlled by his moral compass, which affects his actions (such as throwing the stone) throughout the book and demonstrates his caring personality and eye for justice because of his religious upbringing.
Moss and his wife may not like Sheriff Bell, but damn is it hard to hate such a simple man. He is truly a good man, from knowing his wife is better than him, to acknowledging if he had to die for Moss, he would. People don’t understand how hard or how big that actually may be. He could of course simply let this case go, and not worry as it’s on such a massive scale, but no, he’d rather actually try to figure it out. He is truly a simple, yet great man.

In this decision, Proctor is seen as courageous and devoted, but still tormented by his personal demons. This is shown by the quote, “My wife will never die for me! I will bring your guts into your mouth but that goodness will not die for me” (Miller 76).

He had thought of a fine revenge upon the officer who had referred to him and his fellows as mule drivers” (192). Henry’s intense desire for revenge is a moral flaw, but Crane leaves hope for Henry as he does not act on his hatred for the officer (192). Henry Fleming finally finds inner peace, and courage wins the war in his heart. Crane writes, “Yet the youth smiled, for he saw that the world was a world for him, though many discovered it to be made of oaths and walking sticks. He had rid himself of the red sickness of , battle” (232).
This reinforces the idea that Grendel would be open to friendship if only the Danes were. Unlike Grendel, the Monster struggles to justify his actions; he is beyond remorseful, asking if Walton thought “that the groans of Clerval were music to [his] ears? [His] heart was fashioned to be susceptible of love and sympathy; and when wrenched by misery to vice and hatred, it did not endure the violence of the change” (Shelley 164). By stating that his heart was brought to vice and hatred by misery, the Monster implies that no life would have been lost had he been given a companion with whom he could be happy; with a mate he could have remained a being of love and sympathy.
