To me the hole moral of the story is that during the trials people used this as an opportunity to get what they want like Abigail was John Proctor,Putnam was land,Judge Danforth just liked to see people hang Indignant. because he didn 't like or care about anything. Judge Danforth also makes it clear that anyone other than the girls is Unintelligible because the girls were the Plaintiff was he played
The Puritans ran from persecution but then used the witch hunt to persecute innocent people based on the word of the women and men who had ulterior motives. The women used this opportunity to punish people they long had problems or resentment for. These women- Abigail, Tituba, and Mary- were aware of the power they felt when they were being heard by people in their community who were deemed Godly, upstanding citizens. So, they loved the sense of power they felt. Although the townspeople of Salem used religion as the reason for the witch hunt, the witch hunt created chaos because people started using it a revenge mechanism.
Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
She is different, and knows more, but the kids do not believe her, as to them, it may feel as if they were bowing down to an inferior, which would hurt their pride and dignity. One way
Shay states “Everyone judges everyone else based on their appearance” (page 43). Shay got offended when Tally called her ugly in a software game because she thinks that calling people ugly results in them hating themselves even more. The software game’s purpose is to change uglies into pretties on an “app” by fixing their face, eyes, and mouths. Shay is unique because
In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t.
Women were known to not be able to be in control of their lives as well as being married and taking care of their children Gerald and Eric’s exploitation of Eva Smith is used to show the corruption of men in that time and how they treated women. They objectified them and treated them disrespectfully. Eva Smith was exploited by Gerald because he saw her as ‘vulnerable’ and kept pointing out her “pretty brown hair” and “dark eyes”. This shows how he was focusing on the physical aspects, showing that men in that time mostly focused on appearances rather than personality (showing how men objectified women).She was described as ‘pretty’ and a ‘good sport’ by
Why should she have seen it multiple times while none of the kids could remember viewing it once? This is when the jealousy that was built up inside of the children took a new form. They couldn't cope with their emotions and acted upon their jealousy. They were driven to treat their peer, someone who wanted to see the sun more than anything, in a horrible manner. They hoped to enjoy the experience that obviously was important as it killed Margot to be distant from it.
The kids and Anse violated her aloneness which she cherished. She did not view her children as her own but as Anse’s. To get revenge on him, she had an affair with Whitfield and ended up having Jewel. Her affair was not done in love though, for she did not believe in love. It was done out of her deep hatred for
‘I did’ ‘William!’ said the teacher.” The children are jealous of Margot since she saw the sun and they didn’t. Their “solution” to their problem was to ignore whatever she had to say and to bully her. Since the children are jealous of Margot they portray such bad attributes towards Margot.
Although her actions were unnecessarily, Emily did not encourage the suicide at all, she just got very angry and didn’t know what to do. This does not mean that Emily should not be punish, its saying that she should be punished with a fine, or a sentence; not death.
The way she said it in disgust hurt me. I worked hard for what I had earned all to hear negative comments. This experience in no way made me feel positive about the black race, but I know that it was purely bad attitude from a person. I question why people can be so rude, but that is just how people are sometimes. I didn’t take what this woman said to me personally.
When I’m around Tessa despite my greatest efforts to stay unobtrusive, I act contemptuously, I mean I can’t even pretend to like her enough to attract minimal attention. Geez, I just turn into a brute of a girl when I start talking about her, it’s just, well, I wish her life ended when the nurse first set her in that ether following her birth, that would solve all my “problems”. I see how I could appear harsh on miss Brooks, but she definitely asks for it: if she ever acted like a decent human being, the act was too imperceptible for me to notice (or maybe I’m just too obstinate to accept that she could treat someone with
Charlie first experiences people making fun of him, now that he has knowledge to understand that. This event must have hurt him deeply, because the very people he trusted and thought were his friends were actually mocking and making fun of him. He feels ashamed because people are using his name as an excuse for making mistakes, and he didn’t want to be known this way.
