To the king, Hop Frog was “both a jester to laugh with, and a dwarf to laugh at” (Poe 2). The king made fun of him every chance he got, which could not have
After reading Egnar Allan Poe’s dramatic story “Hop Frog” many people were asking, “is Hop-Frog justified to do what he did?” People can argue about it all day, but I believe Hop-Frog is justified. The king was relentless in his attacks against Hop-frog, Hop-frog killed him out of self defense, Hop-frog had to get his life with Triappetta back to normal. Imagine being a cripple, dwarf, and a jester. Having just one of those stacked against you would devastate almost everyone on Earth.
After Macbeth was crowned king he was so full of pride that he thought everyone of his friends should be at the banquet he was holding. When Macduff did not show up Macbeth swore that he would get revenge and he did by killing Macduff’s wife and son. To kill innocent people to get back at someone who you believe wronged you shows that one has no honor or integrity
Macbeth was justified in the act of killing king Duncan but Macbeth didn't really want to kill Duncan it was his wife lady Macbeth who also had a thirst for power in knew Macbeth would do anything to please his wife . Macbeth defeated Duncan's army on August 14,1040 killing Duncan in the process. Macbeth killed Duncan because Macbeth feels as though Duncan was abusing the power of being
Doing that would eliminate any suspicion of him having any involvement in the crime. Macbeth knew that if he had succeeded with framing the guards, he would be let off as an innocent man. Macbeth’s greed, hunger for power, and deception lead us to the conclusion that Macbeth is solely guilty of this crime. We see that these characteristics all lead to the tragedy of King Duncan’s death.
Fortunato was blinded by what his fate would be. The same goes for the King and his seven ministers. Hop-Frog took advantage of them and used what they prided themselves in to ultimately kill them. He started off by telling them that he had a great joke to play out, so they immediately went along with his plan. He killed them because he was humiliated by them.
Brothers only motivation is to make Doodle like other kids to avoid himself from self embarrassment of having a brother who is disabled and going through a battle of his own ego. Meanwhile the story continues brother is selfish, careless and prideful throughout the story. One trait brother showed is being careless. He is careless because he is constantly reminding doodle how he is disabled. Doodle is unwilling to participate in brother’s cold-hearted attempts of pointing out his mortalities.
Character Analysis: The character that I have chosen to analyze is Brother. At the beginning of the story, we are introduced to brother as a fun-loving kid who just wants a playmate. When his brother, Doodle, is born though he becomes selfish and ashamed of his brother. Brother is selfish when he says, “was embarrassed at having a brother of that age who couldn't walk, so I set out to teach him.”
“His heroism and valor were the stuff of Troll legend. Quick with inspirational words of wisdom, King Peppy ushered in a new era of happiness and security in Troll Village. Now it’s 20 years later, and King Peppy has become a grandfatherly elder statesman to the Trolls. A tad dottier and forgetful than he was as a young man, King Peppy brings some unintentional humor to the Trolls, but is still beloved by everyone in Troll Village, and his legacy lives on in his daughter Poppy.” This is unlike Branch who was the cause of his own disaster.
Correspondingly, in the beginning, when the prince has problems with the Christ’s Hospital boys mocking him, he would attempt to resolve it with a prideful royal edict. Furthermore, when he learned of his father 's death the former king, he immediately fills with pride from the thought “how grand and strange it seems – I AM KING!” Conversely, when the new venerable king finds acceptance in the home of a good wife, he humbles himself to the family level while eating breakfast, instead of being imperious requiring her family
He was abandoned and left alone. He wanted to be accepted by society, but he did not know that his appearance would cause others to be horrified. This alone was injustice. It is unfair to judge someone solely because of their appearance.
I. INTRODUCTION Nowadays most of the youth are not totally engaged in reading some books. They are likely engaged in social media, gadgets because of modern technology that we embrace. Some says that book is boring because its content is wide and much time is needed. But we are wrong because Mr. Garry Paulsen, the one who wrote the book named “The Voyage of the Frog” can bring us to another dimension.
He didn't do anything significant to draw attention to himself. Another example would be on one of the train rides ,when people were so hungry they were beginning to become delusional, someone threw bread into the train. Even though he wanted desperately to eat the bread he thought that if he went after it he would be killed by the others. He was smart by not going after it because he would probably be killed by the other stronger men if he did.
Life is unfair sometimes, but we have to climb over the obstacles and make ourselves stronger. In the story, the narrator states, “But all of us must have something or someone to be proud of, and Doodle had become mine. I did not know then that pride is a wonderful, terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death.” This quote impacts the narrator because he never expected his younger brother to be able to crawl, walk, or even to be able to run. In the story the narrator tells the readers “I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.”
