I chose this theme because, in the book, passing traditions on is a major part of the characters’ culture. Passing traditions on is a practice that is important to many cultures and it effectively connects generations of people through experiences and stories. A quote from the book that demonstrates the theme, shows a character 's viewpoint of passing traditions on. “‘These are the beliefs of our Ojibway people. We sustain the beliefs, and the beliefs sustain us.
Oliver writes “After that, all their nerves click like frozen leaves.” This verse in the poem is referring to the previous two verses which were written in the past tense. Essentially, the young men look back into their lives and understand the pointlessness of young deaths. They can see that life is not all about killing or fighting. Oliver finishes off the poem with the lines “They think of this world welcoming/the bodies of their sons.” Although the young men finally understand the hopelessness of the violence, it is too late as all they can see is the death of their children. The “glory” in fighting in death is now gone, as well as their
“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.”( Voltaire) This quote helps explain the main idea of The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe , a story about a narrator who is the caregiver of the old man who explains his reasons and his exact ways for killing the old man he was taking care of. Out of spite for the victims vulture-like cataract eye, he plots this plan to kill for weeks to rid of the eye. He finally succeeds until a nosy neighbor foils the scheme. These are 3 reasons why the narrator is guilty of murder. In The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe the narrator is guilty of murder because the narrator thinks the old man could never suspect that his caregiver would ever try to kill him, he claims he can recite the story calmly and healthily as he remembers every detail unlike an insane person , and he admits to killing the old man so he is aware he has committed murder.
Alexie and Sa both share the ideas of the Native American assimilation story and the hardships that follow assimilation. Through separation, finding themselves, and “loosing spirit”, Sa and Alexie find themselves at different stages of growth. With a key concept of hair and honor they relate what it is like to be pushed into an unfamiliar culture. Both having pressures to cut their hair and going through Indian schools set up be the federal government.

Throughout the film, we get a glimpse of morality coming from the characters. Kurzel’s idea of placing the concept of child loss at the heart of the action, especially for Lady Macbeth, and the need for closure without leaving the weapons on the battlefield, for Macbeth himself. The feeling of loss manifests itself into violence and death which paint the very picture of an authentic Shakespearean play. The film is shot considering a wide range of perspectives which include secondary and trivial characters. This aspect influenced the plot in bringing out humanity and affinity in the scenes; scenes that are only described in speeches in the stage play including the initial battle scene and, later, the gruesome deaths of Macduff’s wife and children are shown in the film.
In many instances throughout the play, author Bilodeau emphasizes the significance of the Inuktitut language in the Inuit culture. One member of the native community, Tulugaq, explains that “In ancient tradition, [Inuit] people believed words were very powerful… When we speak something, that something is given substance. It comes into being… Words are how an individual will take shape” (Bilodeau 71). To the Inuit population, their language is essential to their culture. As such, Veronica’s frequent use of Inuktitut words in her poems highlights the motivations of her activism: to take a stand for the health, safety, and longevity her community.
