The pain and suffering that the prisoners were enduring are shown using flames and fire. The conditions of the Holocaust and the scare tactics that the Nazis used are usually involving flames because flames on Earth symbolize the flames of Hell and how torturous it is. Flames as shown by Wiesel in the memoir, show Hell on Earth and how Hell can really come to Earth with the evil of other people. As expressed, the flames and events of the Holocaust can relate to the flames of Hell and what is believed to go on in Hell because of their many
In “The Cask of Amontillado”, Montresor’s motive is told in the opening paragraph. In the first sentence it states “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge”. His motive for wishing revenge upon the antagonist arises from an insult Fortunato had done to him. Fortunato was motivated by his pursuit for the Amontillado, which eventually became his downfall. In “The Jilting of Granny Weatherall”, the various characters have similar motivations.
Woah, there 's a fire! In We Were Liars one of the main conflicts is that there was a fire. In this essay I am going to tell you about a book called We Were Liars. It is called this because Cadence, the protagonist and her friends made a group together. This group is called Liars.
The theme is made clear in this story from opening line. “The thousand injures of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge”(739). Montresor and Fortunato have a lengthy history, then an insult that goes too far enrages Montresor and he vows revenge. Montresor states, “I must not only punish, but punish with impunity” (739), implying that his revenge must be permanent, well thought out and Fortunato must feel the wrath from
“Let either of you breathe a word, or the edge of a word, about the other things, and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you,” (Act I, 160). She was the first person in the play to accuse a person of seeing people summon spirits of the Devil. This caused a massive, wide-scale witch hunt to take place; families torn apart, mothers, fathers, and even children murdered for what was considered to be the greater good. Now, others began to accuse people of witchcraft and people who had been lifelong friends to each other now had no choice other than to point fingers at each other or be put to death. Widespread panic and unreasonable action was sweeping through everyone in Salem, all because of a little lie by
Her only real pastime is watching shows like “ugly-d to teen queen”; to learn about the latest cosmetic surgeries which she then pester her parents to obtain for her. Although Taylor is a main character, she is incredibly unlikable and her personality is designed to allow for slight character development and it can be used used by Claire Carmichael to cover the many plot Holes of her story. Said character development includes becoming slightly less spoiled and Barrett Barrett is quite a poorly developed character. Barrett is polite and a rule follower to the extreme and he never does anything wrong until the very end of the book, where he shows a hint of rebellion. As a reader I found Barrett a more engaging and likeable character than Taylor.
For example, in “Lamb to the Slaughter”, Mrs. Maloney, the murderer, tells herself, “Do everything right and natural. Keep things absolutely natural and there’ll be no need for any acting at all.” She thought that if she would go to the store and pretend to know of nothing that happened, that the detectives wouldn’t suspect her as the murderer. Furthermore, in the second story, “Jury of her Peers”, Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Hale discuss Mrs. Wright’s request for her apron in jail. “...She said she wanted an apron. Funny thing to want,... for there’s not much to get you dirty in jail,...
Abigail Williams and Elizabeth Proctor only seem to have one thing in common to readers: their love for John Proctor. Although John Proctor does not feel the same way towards Abigail and even says, “My wife is innocent, except she knew a whore when she saw one!”(Arthur 111), when talking about the innocence of his wife and the promiscuity of his mistress, Abigail Williams. While Abigail is young and naive, Elizabeth is mature and wise. Elizabeth uses her wisdom to recognize the flaws of the young girl to ultimately conclude that Abigail’s accusations of witchcraft were not true. According to the Puritans, a relationship
Banquo neither fears nor begs for the predictions the witches have in store for him, displaying his cautious attitude in regards of the deceiving sisters. Banquo’s lack of belief is evident once more as he says to Macbeth, “Were such things here, as we do speak about? / Or have we eaten on the insane root / That takes the reason prisoner.” (I. iii. 83-84). Despite the fact that Banquo has spoken to the witches himself, watching them vanish into thin air further encourages his doubt.
In every crime show episode, the investigating team comes up with multiple incorrect theories. Yet, they never think about their mistakes as dire, they merely accept them used them as a way to guide them to the truth. Their suspicion of the wife helps them notice the odd behavior of the husband or that extra test you ran on a sample can become the next clue. Seeing these characters own up to their mistakes even in matters of life and death encourages me to do the same. So what if some of the seeds we plant in our garden don’t sprout, or my resolution gets vetoed?
Despite desperate efforts to raise ladders and spread nets there was little the firefighters could do to help the terrified women that were lining the windows of the ninth floor. The longest ladders only reached the seventh and the fire nets were useless to the girls who were falling from over 100 feet above. Several of the girls jumping were already on fire, demonstrating that there was only the choice to jump or burn to death. Thousands of people continued to watch as firemen poured water on the building and entered to find even more girls. The elevator shaft was clogged with at least thirty more bodies, most burned beyond recognition; in the ninth floor workroom
