“Knowledge is power, power to do evil or to do good.”- Veronica Roth In the play “The Crucible” by Arthur Miller, Abigail Williams is mostly responsible for the girls being in the woods, she is the one who drives the play. The evil and lying takes over her mind she gets worse throughout the story. Instead of changing herself she tries to change people around her from getting caught it's either them or her. Even before the trials she wasn't innocent because she had an affair with John Proctor Neglecting the fact it was against the villages beliefs. Abigail Williams was non stop visualizing about her affair the more she thought about it the more she convinced herself she was in love.
But at this point Sal’s mother was pregnant so when her mother gave birth the baby was dead when it got strangled with its umbelacelcord. Sal blamed herself because she thinks if she never climbed that tree none of it would have happened. Sal thought, “ He said to me, “ It wasn’t your fault, Sal—it wasn’t because she carried you. You mustn’t think that,” I didn’t believe him,” (page 138). If Sal didn’t believe her father 's words then she thinks she caused her mothers miscarriage and she is probably upset about this.
However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her. Instead, she “went out very little” (Faulkner 53). Because Emily made the choice to stay hidden from the townspeople even though her father’s presence was long gone, she was creating an antagonist upon herself. According to Ray B. West, Jr., “when as in A Rose For Emily, the world depicted is a confusion between the past and the present, the atmosphere is one of distortion-of unreality” (par.3).
Corresponding to her drowning financial state and unclean physical appearance, she is not wanted by other white people. Scout, the narrator in the story and a girl who witnesses events throughout To Kill A Mockingbird, reveals this conclusion, by saying “white people wouldn’t have anything to do with her because she lived among pigs.” (Lee, Chapter 19) Telling the audience that Mayella did not have an advantage of being white at the time. During Mayella’s time with her father, Tom Robinson, the accused rapist, said Mayella had kissed him, and upon doing so, Bob Ewell says “you goddamn whore, I’ll kill ya.” (Lee, Chapter 19) Showing any sexual interaction or contact with black people was highly frowned upon and that Bob Ewell is
All of the people before the girl were just trying to get a bargain on the bird not even thinking about it’s happiness or well-being. The sick girl could have just kept the swallow for her own amusement, but instead let it be free to make it happy. This theme is portrayed by several characters in the story. One way the author conveys this message through the bird by implying that nobody understood how the bird felt because they weren't in its situation. The only one to understand the bird was the girl, because she knew what it was like being stuck.
Neither Ethan nor Mattie, the ones actually enacting the transgression, were the ones to break the dish. It was the cat, by-proxy Zeena, who broke the dish; she, it, saw that her marriage to Ethan may as well be over. The broken pickle dish symbolizes both Ethan and Zeena’s broken marriage and their broken trust. Their relationship will never be the same again, and Zeena now has physical confirmation of the feeling she's had for years: Ethan has moved on from here. However, Zeena hasn't done much to keep him
To point out, while Odysseus was gone, Penelope stayed loyal by not marrying any of the suitors, and not having any affairs with other men, unlike her husband. For instance, Odysseus has an affair while he was in Circe’s palace. When he was at her palace, his men got turned into swine, and Odysseus is forced to save them. Although, something that was not pointed out was that Odysseus was protected by a magic potion given to him by Hermes. Because of the potion, he was incapable of turning into a swine when confronting Circe and took advantage of it.
She decides to follow him down the rabbit hole into the dark tunnel unaware of where it might take her, but without the slightest concern of how she well ever get back home. Alice’s reaction falling through the rabbit hole was quite different from Dorothy’s, she was very impatient to get to the end of the tunnel and to find out where the rabbit hole will take her, ‘“Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end? “I wonder how many miles I’ve fallen by this time?” she said aloud. “I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth…”’ (Carroll 4).
Although her death initially seems to be like a suicide, yet it was an accident. Suicide may have crossed Ophelia’s mind, because of the state she was in and everything that has happened with the men in her life. The pain and grief she went through is something she would probably like to get rid of, and perhaps once the tree branch broke, she just gave up and didn’t decide to fight the river currents. She was likely aware that she was drowning, and didn’t fight it because it is ironically a solution to her problems; but she did not consciously think of committing
Also, my mother usage of power was unsuccessful. Tabby managed power to defend against the applied of power from others. Usually people used an altered type of power to change the reported of the story. However, one type of power not used was exchange.
