“Darwinian” can symbolize that the author is beginning to feel a primal “survival of the fittest” mindset while killing; it could also be a hint to the WWII metaphor because the Nazi’s used Darwinian ideas to justify the killings they committed. In the fourth stanza, the focus is still on the speaker’s personal experience and feelings. Now, the speaker is using blunt phrases that don’t suggest any mercy or regret, they suggest satisfaction and joy. The phrases “I dropped the mother” and “O one-two-three the murderer inside me rose up hard, the hawkeye killer came on stage forthwith” are cold and suggest a relentless killer. The phrase “O one-two-three” offers a song-like vibe, even though the speaker is talking about murdering a family of woodchucks, solidifying that the speaker is enjoying the murder and finds it
Ehrenreich looks around to see if Howard was anywhere near and tries to rush out the store without being noticed to go call the motels. Which I consider is her act of rebellion since she didn’t finish her CSL and wanted to do what she needed to do. Ehrenreich’s experiment isn’t unethical because she didn’t cause any harm to anyone or violate any laws. The only thing that can be considered unethical is that she lied on the last application and lied to her co-worker Pete that she was single. Ehrenreich didn’t lie to hurt anyone but to sort of benefit from them in the sense that they would have her back and she lied on the application to see if her chances of getting a job were different.
This refusal of the call shows that Susie is still a child and not mentally prepared for death, nor does she want to believe that a kind neighbor is the one who killed her. At first, Susie seems to be thriving in the In Between, the world that her little brother, Buckley, dubs as “the arc of blue between heaven and earth”. However, she’s still torn between the urges she had while living and the call of the lighthouse that will show her the truth and allow her to move on. Eventually, supernatural aid kickstarts Susie’s development and want to leave the In Between to move on peacefully. The call of the lighthouse signifies the supernatural aid that Susie needs to start her journey to heaven.
In the beginning of the novel, LaVaughn has a flashback to a conversation with her mother she had when she was a child asking, “Can I go to college when I’m big?” Her mom stopped in her tracks and responded: “Nobody in this building... ever went to college, nobody in my family.” Although this response could have dampened Lavaghn’s desire, instead it put her on the path of wanting to prove her mother wrong. If LaVaughn did not have determination and desire to better herself, her mother’s comment could have set LaVaughn on a path of complacency of not wanting to rise above the challenges that her family had of living in poverty. LaVaughn is a determined and bright young girl who wants to rise above life’s

Although the Landmine and the Rope in Melissa Range’s poems are both made to participate in horrifying violence against the innocent, the Landmine reveals its boastful indifference by twisting imagery of life and hope into a grotesque threat to haunt the world of peace long into the future, while the Rope reveals its humble sympathy by longing for a future that redeems violence by affirming life and beauty. The Landmine and the Rope are both tools of death throughout the two poems. The Landmine claims it will “bloom into a bouquet for an amputee” (4), vividly describing the pain and suffering that it will cause to whoever is unlucky enough to cross its path, even “children”(8). The fact that the Landmine mentions children as a potential victim proves that whether someone is an enemy or not, their lives are in danger. The Landmine is unavoidable, as it is “in hiding, but can’t be smoked out”(5), giving no chance for the victim of this weapon to escape.
7. Which character (or characters) do you believe is the greatest influence on Esperanza and her life? How did they influence her? Use evidence from three different vignettes to prove your claims. The characters that I think influenced Esperanza in the book her mom because whenever she had a problem or if something was going on in her life and if she thought something was wrong but people still did it like when tito’s friends took her friends key and said they wouldn’t give it back unless she would give each of them a kiss for them back and she did not think that they should make her do that to get her keys back.
One quote that supports this is “I do sir. I believe she means to murder”. John says this because he knows Abigail’s true intention, and he knows she is seeking revenge. Another quote that supports her flaw is “Goody Proctor always keeps poppets”. This is Abigail’s attempt to blame Goody Proctor for the wound to her stomach.
According to Patria one of the three sisters involved in the movement, states that she and her other sisters were not willing to offer their family for the revolution until Minerva did “But Minerva, your own child- I began and then I saw it did hurt her to make this sacrifice she was convinced she needed to make” (Alvarez, 155). Patria’s compelling words show the determination of Minerva to end the sadistic presidency. Minerva doesn’t not want to give up her child but she does so for what she believes in. Such determination leads to worthiness of the sister’s sacrifices. Dede, the only sister who survived insists that she would have joined her sisters but she couldn’t because of her husband “Even so that night, her ears still ringing from Jaimito’s shout, Dedé had been ready to risk her life.
