He argues that the British’s support for social control, meant renouncing the individual alone, and given his propensity towards anarchy, he disapproved of their socialist nature. He denounced the cultural homogeneity of American society, their heedlessness and indifference, and the crooked, nefarious nature of law enforcement. Deemed as his most famous novel, A Clockwork Orange has been regarded considerably influential in areas of literary, visual, and music culture. However, prior to its release there was hesitation on publishing the novel due to worries of being an ‘enormous flop’ (Independent, 2012). It was prompted that, although illustrating a well-kept storyline and pleasant detail, the language would be too challenging to comprehend.
In the I Have a Dream speech, Dr. King expresses his evidence by using metaphors such as, “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” This metaphor represents how they do not want to find their freedom through bitterness and hatred just like how they are treated. With the Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln does not use metaphors through his logical appeal to convey his evidence, he uses facts and statistics, such as, “Now we are engaged in a great
Kipling remarks, “But the Empires and the Kings continue to divert themselves as selfishly as before.” His word choice of “selfishly” discloses his feelings toward the British Empire as he believes it is self- indulgent and only has interest in benefiting itself. Kipling does not believe the Empire is colonizing other countries to help those people, but forcing their culture and beliefs onto other areas for more power and control. Additionally,
Gandhi people manage their anger and have peace against the British. He did this by creating a philosophy and encouraging people to follow that philosophy. Gandhi also used peace instead of violence against the British. Gandhi did this because he believed that he can achieve peace among everybody. Gandhi’s philosophy didn't work on everyone.
But, tension and clashes do not mean antagonism. The British indeed took advantage of the fissures that were already present in the Indian society and attempted to create antagonism. During the British colonial rule, religion was never the only reason for the communal issues in India or the tensions between Hindus and Muslims, but also, favouritism and communal elections and economic status, which were in a way or another aggravated by the British. We can say that there is indeed some truth in what Sir S.A Khan said. Hindus and Muslims could not sit on the same throne at that time but they would the least want the British to sit on the throne and rule over
He starts by analyzing the past, saying that if any mistakes were made, they “have none to blame but ourselves” (IN TEXT). However, he counters this with the idea that they cannot change the past, but embrace its effects and move on. Next, he appeals to the logic of his Puritan beliefs. Paine says that he believes that “God Almighty will not give up a people to military destruction” (IN TEXT). This gives the reader a sturdy base to place their hope, which he later increases by calling the king out for his murderous and unethical actions, and claims that the king has no grounds to seek support or solace from
Pathos promotes either a positive or negative emotion or feeling, and in this case, Henry used pathos to evoke negative emotions. His audience could feel a sense of betrayal when he said that the colonists' petition had been received with "that insidious smile." Insidious means treacherous and crafty, and that's what Henry wanted the British to seem like in his speech. He was trying to show the citizens at the convention that Parliament was deceiving them into believing that they would accept the petitions in a positive manner, while he knew that the British were really just trying to keep the colonists under their rule. This angered his audience, and made them resent and fear the British when they realized how much power they had over
He is willing to do anything to try to protect his ideals, even if that requires him to kill a man. The violent act does nothing though, as it becomes evident that people have accepted the Western lifestyle against Okonkwo’s desire: “He knew that Umuofia that would not go to war. He knew because they let the other messengers escape,” (Achebe 189). If the population had not let the other messengers escape, then it would mean that they did not prefer to be Christians and preferred to have control over the land again, instead of the British government having control. That was not the case which means that they had accepted the newly introduced ideals
To others, taking away Shylock’s religion and livelihood is not considered being merciful because they are punishing Shylock for trying to get what was rightfully his. This shows that the value of mercy is subjective, and differs from person to person. Furthermore, there is the important question of when and how much mercy should be shown. In this scene, Shylock is asked to give mercy when he has to reason to. However, the duke claims that he is merciful to Shylock, even though he is not obliged to.
The settlers felt as though they were being mistreated by unfair taxes and laws put in place. Thomas Paine, an American colonist, spoke out about British oppression of the American people. In Paine’s The Crisis he described a strong America being enslaved by the British by arguing “I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery” (Paine). In this snippet of Paine’s writing, his interpretation of the injustice served as an antithesis for a rhetorical effect where two complete opposite results are the only solutions. Paine portrays the terrible iron-fist of the British king on the American colonists.
