Whereas, Lady Macduff encouraged her family to be loyal to King Duncan and to his sons, the rightful rulers of Scotland. Lady Macduff is a strong and a loving mother. After her conversation with Ross, in which he tells her that Macduff has fled the country, we see her close relationship with her son when she tells him; because she is furious that Macduff has left them alone, that his father is dead. Even though she doesn’t believe her husband is a traitor. We see her devotion to Macduff when asked by the murders where he is she replies; “I hope, in place so unsanctified, Where such as thou may’st find him.”
The religious topics that O’Connor focuses on in her writings present controversial and confusing ideas. Many of O’Connor’s spiritual messages and biblical allusions
However, others viewed Dickinson’s mother as a “passive wife of a domineering husband” (Wider). Because her mother was “passive,” Dickinson never knew a mother’s love until her mother suffered from paralysis, and Dickinson learned to love her” (Donoghue). Both of Dickinson’s parents “were firmly rooted within a Calvinist tradition that found the free inquiry and self-culture of Unitarianism highly suspect.” Both of Dickinson’s parents also “praised a book in which the protagonists are defined by the importance of principled action, even when such action entails breaking the law” (Wider). Dickinson’s brother was also valued highly in society due to the fact that
Through commanding her husband imperative verbs such as “sleep,” “wash [your hands]” and “speak not,” she associates herself with the comforting gestures a mother offers a child. By ordering Macbeth to complete these actions, Lady Macbeth is in actual fact protecting him from the guilt and insanity that blood is often associated with, seen through many parts in the play. Lady Macbeth has no doubt that her husband has good intentions, rightfully so, she questions Macbeth being too “full of th’ milk” of human kindness” to murder. It could then be argued that Lady Macbeth is weary about the sight of innocent blood on Macbeth’s hands having the potential to remind Macbeth of his own humanity, and thus Macbeth could potentially rethink his (already uncertain) decision to murder the king, therefore by asking Macbeth to “get” some water to “wash this filthy witness from [his hand]” Lady Macbeth is simply encouraging Macbeth to avoid the possibility of hindering his own position as “King.” Additionally, the banquet scene in Act 3 scene 4 further expresses this view of Lady Macbeth as a maternal and supportive figure, rather than an inhumane “fiend.”
A Whole New World (A Critique of Milton’s Theology) Milton’s Paradise Lost is one of the most important pieces of literature because of its literary quality and its controversial relationship to theology. He is rather controversial with his portrayal of biblical figures. By rejecting the Trinity and depicting God and the Son as two separate beings, Milton creates a new theology. Through his use of this theology, Milton shows the Son’s rise to glory through action and character, a concept that gives way to an argument against the birthright of monarchs.
I assumed Atwood’s diction would be similar to Homer’s since her story is virtually a retelling of The Odyssey from a different point of view; however, this is not the case—Atwood’s diction is very refreshing. The many similes and metaphors scattered throughout the narrative are not only entertaining, but they also paint very unique and specific images for the reader. My personal favorite simile comes when Penelope is explaining how she is able to visit the land of the
The theme of the short story Scholarship Jacket by Martha Salinas is that You can’t put a price on effort. In this story there is a determined protagonist named Martha, hoping for a scholarship jacket which would honor the valedictorian. She understands the poverty of her family, but is not letting that discourage her. The tone of the story includes her impecunious family, the struggle to mirror her sister’s achievement, as well as settings of gloom and joy reflecting the characters balance of emotions. Martha displays her acts of realization towards her rough conditions and notices something new that her grandfather is trying to explain to her.
Desdemona shows where her loyalty lies in this quote. At the start, Desdemona talks about her duty to her father, Brabantio, and how she is supposed to respect him above all others. Desdemona then turns it around by talking about how her mother showed more duty to Brabantio than her own father and Desdemona says that she will do the same. Desdemona proves her loyalty to Othello quite well. She chose her husband, the man she loved, over her own father.
Antigone uses both emotional and logical appeals to persuade her sister, Ismene to go against Creon’s rules and laws, to help honor her brother giving him a proper burial, thus giving him a chance at an afterlife. There brother risked his life for others and Creon allowed one of the men to have a proper burial but not him so while Antigone was trying to get Ismene to help give him what he deserves she said “He is my brother. and he is your brother, too.” (Sophocles et al. 191) This is logically persuasive because it is usually common sense to help your family through everything and to do what 's best for them.
The theme that injustice will not prevail. And though James’ mother was aware that injustice existed, she did not accept it and become resentful, she instead valued her children and all the shades of color they contained, and relived her life through them. She was an old wooden table that
This is a pivotal scene where Huck ultimately decides that there is no reason Jim shouldn 't be free. I think that he was far enough into the trip with Jim where their bond had grown to be that of either brothers or father and son. This allowed him to think independently with his own memories and emotions, not society 's. He also realizes that his bond with the Widow is insignificant when compared to the love and protection that Jim has provided to Huck. This renouncement appalled me because she provided Huck with a home and education when both of Huck 's parents were absent. Will Huck learn to love the Widow for her generosity after Jim is

The n-word is acceptable because of its change in context. Nigga is used as word meaning endearment and nigger is used in an offensive way from the past. Some may argue that this in fact is untrue and is highly incorrect because its past use is imprinted on the word. The n-word is acceptable because of its difference in meaning.
CreOff There are many influential leader in this world that make excellent decisions and laws for their countries. But would you listen to a god or just another human? There are 7 billion people on Earth and there are different religions that believe in different gods but there are still only a few gods or lords. Why would you follow a law created by your fellow human beings when a god wants you to do something else?
