Since humans romanticize war, Death can strike any family. This is demonstrated in Luis Valdez, in the 1969 play,”The Buck Private” demonstrates that. Valdez supports hi argument by illustrating stock characters, by using death as a main character, and flashbacks show Johnny’s, the protagonist,reasons for enlisting to earn respect, and the consequences of his enlistment; his death. Valdez’s purpose is to entertain the audience and protest the Vietnam War so that the audience stops glamorizing war and starts recognizing its dangers. Valdez writes in a satirical tone for young adults.
Out of all the warnings he has received, the ones he truly felt were true were Calpurnia’s dream and the discovery of the beast without a heart. Another reason why caesar didn’t take the warnings seriously, although everyone loyal to him did is his arrogance. Caesar was very arrogant and this is shown through the way he speaks, which is always in the third person. Caesar’s ignorance and Caesar’s arrogance were the leading causes of his demise. Had he come to his senses earlier, and not let his arrogance get in the way of his safety, Caesar may have lived longer than he

It is a huge tragedy how people cannot look past someone’s disability and get to know them. This story isn’t about killing the King, its all about how its crucial to get to know people even if they are a little different. Back in the day, killing was (unfortunately) very common. Today whenever there is a murder it will make the front page, but back then people would just shrug when they heard the news of a killing. Obviously, that doesn’t make slaughtering right, but under the circumstances (and the mindset back then) the killing of the King and his eight friends has been
While reading non-professional reviews, there are a lot of people that bash rappers for trying to make movies. Many say that 50 cent did a horrible job of acting in this film, but I honestly think he played the role well. He was not actor of the year or anything special but he did great. So his acting is not something I would change in this movie as most people suggest, but the downfall of this movie came from having some over dramatized scenes that would be a little too long. Also the dialogue was good but could've been way better if it gave us more emotion when speaking to each other.

This carefree feeling mostly came with the influence of alcohol and the sense of freedom it came with. In daisy’s actions you clearly see that if prohibition would have worked out, Gatsby wouldn’t have been able to throw this major parties that attracted the people he wanted to come. This situation was very common because of liquor, people were cheating and abusing their spouses and that’s why prohibition was put into action. Passing prohibition laws were intended to prevent these incidences but actually made them worse. Daisy wasn’t the only one guilty of cheating under the influence, Tom was one of the worst cases.
For instance, Amenabar’s portrayal of that era shows religion being used to justify throwing a man onto fire, almost burning him. Religion is also used by characters in the film to validate the persecution of pagans, as well as the heartless destruction of the Library of Alexandria. As the movie comes to an end, religion is used to justify violence and the murder of Hypatia – a dedicated scholar who thought independently of religion. One of the most poignant scenes in the movie is the destruction of the Great Library of Alexandria after Emperor Theodosius orders that
He says, of himself, “I do think I see some shred of goodness in John Proctor” (Miller 1166). John Proctor is an excellent example of these three ideas regarding the tragic hero.
