Wiccan ethics are seldom codified in a legalistic way, but may be informed by some common expressions such as the "Wiccan Rede" and the "three-fold law." According to most versions of the three-fold law, whatever one does come back to one thrice-multiplied, in amplified repercussion. One short, rhymed version of the Wiccan Rede states Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: “An it harm none, do what you will." Often "none" is interpreted to include the doer themself in analogy to the "golden rule" of other faiths. There are no universal proscriptions regarding food, sex, burial or military service and Wiccans, as a rule, discourage proselytization (attempts to convert others to a different religion).
Vicki Gunvalson has went as far as to defend Brooks Ayers on her Bravo blog. This could simply all be because of their legal document, but nobody knows that for sure. Gunvalson has shared that nobody has ever given her a document of any kind proving that Brooks doesn 't have cancer. Here is a bit of what Vicki Gunvalson had to say on her blog. As I write this blog, I have so many mixed emotions, but mostly it 's sadness and betrayal.
In conclusion Sirens are mythical creatures that exist in mythology stories and religion. Some of the connections i 've made with this topic are that the “modern day sirens” (such as vampires) aren 't as different but also don 't seem realistic like the stories. Ive also made the connections between Modern day women and the most popular way to get the attention is by deception. Sirens are one of the most deceiving mythological creatures. the three most important things about sirens is They have many different appearances, They are known for their way of seduction, and they take place in many different stories.
In the story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates the outcome and the meaning relies solely on the reader. For some it’s a riveting fight between good and evil and for others it’s a sordid tale of seduction and loss of innocence. Connie and Arnold Friend represent the struggle between good and evil. Oates’s mixture of literal, figurative, psychological and allegorical makes this a great and suspenseful tale. Oates unmasked Arnold Friend as a satyr which is a demi-god from Greek and Roman mythology.
To reflect this flaw in sight and consumption Eve then had to remove her clothes as a sign of humility, revealing her body as sin. For this reason nearly all of the female monsters within the Middle Ages reflect some deformity of women’s turpitudinem. The Sheela-na-gig (Figure 1), as example, represents the likeness of a female figure but only demands attention to four fragments of the body; the vagina, breasts, mouth and eyes. Importantly these are areas of the body that are also associated with a transgression between life and death in the abject; the vagina menstruates, the breasts lactate, the mouth speaks, swallows and spits, and the eyes reflect something non gendered, tears. The structures of the real therefore begin to ‘meld into one another in a cascade towards the absurd’.
It was fear that establishes the concepts of religion and faith. Angela carter suggests that “the singular moral function of the gothic is that of provoking unease”4 this unease is imputed to the gothic’s representation of the horror and terror, whether in physical form like pain, imprisonment and violent attacks, or in psychological torture like the fear of the unknown. Moreover, Sigmund Freud asserts in his essay “ The uncanny ” that the gothic novels are full of such uncanny, mysterious events which arouse the feeling of fear and astonishment. The uncanny is related to what is frightening, it coincide to affirm what thrills fear in general.5 Elizabeth MacAndrew, the famous Gothic fiction critic, defines this English genre, Gothic fiction, as a “literature of nightmare”: Among its conventions are found dream landscapes and figures of the subconscious imagination. Its fictional world gives form to amorphous fears and impulses common to all mankind, using an amalgam of materials, some torn from the author’s own subconscious mind and some stuff of myth, folklore, fairy tale, and romance.
The speaker is Hecate. I choose this quotation to show the omniscient of Hecate. She utilized human’s weakness and play her “game” on Macbeth. She made confident to arrogant, maximized all evil part from people’s personalities. She is the symbol of dark world.
Victor Frankenstein, the protagonist in Frankenstein, and his creature have been subject to many different interpretations. Some of them including a psychoanalytic approach based on Sigmund Freud 's theory, others have compared them to other characters from mythological stories as, for example Oedipus. However, only a few have analyzed Victor as a narcissist. The DSM-5, the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, lists among others the following traits: exaggerated self-importance, embellished and overstated achievements, belief of superiority in regard to others and fixation of imagination of success and power, as symptoms of narcissism. In this paper, I will demonstrate how these symptoms apply to the depiction
and obtains the title, which trigger an arrogant and self-absorbed thinking leading to madness and finally, death. The play seems to bring up the question, whether Macbeth is fully responsible of his own destiny, or under control of fate. In the first glance, the play seems to take rather fatalistic direction, meaning that we are powerless to make decisions as they are inevitably determined by supernatural power (Hugh 1)) It is due to the presence of supernatural forces throughout the whole play that systematically fulfills the prophecy; therefore the witches represent the idea of fate in the play. However, Shakespeare seems to rather intertwine fate with free will and perhaps even promotes the second philosophy as the play evolves. Free Will over Fate in Macbeth This theory is obvious in a scene, where Macbeth is consciously deciding to kill king Duncan.
Week One: Hysteria in The Magic Toyshop The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter has many intense and strange characters. One could come up with many problems that each character faces but I will focus on Margret and what could be considered, her hysterical behaviours. Conversion hysteria is when a repressed psychological symptom becomes converted into a physical or behavioural symptom. In On Psychotherapy of Hysteria, Freud explained repression as the ego’s effort to keep bad thoughts and impulses out of one’s awareness and that it can be used as a way to not dealing with or avoiding something. Margret’s hysteria would have been caused by her relationship with her husband.
