The morphine is a symbol of corruption by the white world, and because it is a product of the people Niska develops a hate for, that she finds it difficult to fight its effect on Xavier. “I cursed them with everything I had as they receded with no my father into their own world” (TDR, 53). Furthermore, Niska’s stories have an influence on Xavier because its distracts him from the pain, the drugs and the awful memories. “THE STORY AUNTIE TELLS me brings a smile to my lips” (TDR, 250). This is what Xavier needs indeed, to remember who he is because he is in between the world of the whites and the world of the Cree.
The cultural context tells the reader that the townspeople have a totalitarism government. This means that they have restrictions and no freedom. This type of government was also seen in Nazi, Germany. Shirley Jackson uses the story to convey how evil has been going on and no one has the courage to ask the question why, “The incident that is a random execution of a member of the community in what appears to be a barbaric primitive ritual grounded in tradition” (Shields). There is irony in this because it is opposite of what is expected.
It shows us how if we are friends with the wrong people, we can get into trouble and may suffer immensely because of it. Edgar Allen Poe probably knew what the name Fortunato meant but purposely used it to display situational irony. Even though it meant lucky, Fortunato wasn’t lucky at all in this story. For example, he was chained up and buried alive, as well as having a gruesome cough, and got in all sorts of trouble.
People in the town have Indians portrayed as extremely superstitious, drunks, and lazy individuals, however; this just not true. One character, Wesley Hayden has an opinion on native Americans, “Nevertheless, he believed Indians, with only a few exceptions, were ignorant, lazy, superstitious, and irresponsible”(33). Maire Little Soldier defines the odds of all those negative aspects said of Native Americans. She is responsible of David along with other things around the Haydens’ house and is a hard worker. However, Wes is still reluctant to have Marie as a Native American gain justice.
“She didn't believe Matt because he was only a ‘disgusting clone.’ A dull rage at the unfairness swept at him” (105). Matt always thought that the fact he was discriminated against because he was a clone was unfair. However, he would often call himself a filthy clone and wave his status in María’s face. Compare this to later in the story, “‘Once you’re in control, you’ll destroy the opium empire and tear down the barrier.’ [...] ‘I promise’” (368). Matt is declared a human and the new ruling drug lord of opium.
Next to being, “The Lottery” a story most readers cannot connect with though find the purpose engaging. Finally, “The Skating Party” which portrays romance and betrayal. The short stories “The Possibility of Evil,” “The Lottery” and “The Skating Party” all culminate in an ironic ending that is, upon a more critical reading, foreshadowed throughout the story. The situational and Dramatic irony was evident throughout, by the foreshadowing of Miss. Adela Strangeworth's roses and the dropped letter addressed to Don Crane.
Even though it changed from Indian to Spanish flamenco style, the gypsy spirit is still retained within the music. The parameter of Rom music is extremely difficult to clearly define because of this paradox. No matter what instrument is played or where it is being played there will always be a hint of Rom technique that sets it apart from the traditional sound. Danny Fender made light of the stereotype of the Rom people by saying, "People say we Gypsies are robbers and
These soldiers were lower class citizens ,who were deemed “worthless”, that made up the majority of the population that settled on the frontier.However, scholars now say that the problem on the frontier was not due to the racial or the social class, but rather to the limited of resources, weak military structure, among other structural flaws. Other structural flaws such as the Missions that many Native people are taken to be Christianized. The Church who sought to remove Native people from the exploitation and sexual abuse of the Spaniards inflicted corporal punishment on the Native Californians. According to Father President Fermin Francisco de Lasuen, corporal punishment is necessary, at the time, because the Native people are seen as “Untamed savages”. Native Californians who live in missions and presidios, and in surrounding villages found themselves faced with harsh violence inflicted by Spaniards and the Catholic Church.
Gabriella Durham Ms.Foster 9Honors English 21 October 2016 Deception: The Cask of Amontillado and The Necklace Deception is the act of deceiving someone sometimes it 's for your own gain or the benefit of another but sometimes you lose more than you gain like Madame Loisel in “the necklace” while Montresor in the in “the cask of amontillado” gains something for deceiving Fortunato. “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had bore as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge”(Poe 344).
