If you think about it the love and hate is evened out. The hate of both families are strong enough to pull Romeo and Juliet apart, but their love for eachother is strong enough that even if they try to do that they can’t. It’s kind of already proven that the families can’t break up Romeo and Juliet. They killed themselves because they didn’t think they could live without the other. Speaking of them killing themselves, at the end of the play the families are in the tomb and know that Romeo and Juliet
Neither he nor his wife would admit to his lechery in the aforementioned questioning, their reputation would be destroyed, even if it meant that the truth was shown. In Act Two, John has an outburst at his wife’s arrest, seeing as it would deface his family name saying to the court officials, “God will not let you wash your hands of this!”(204). Proctor blamed the court for his family legacy being ruined. In the last scene of the play, Proctor perfectly sums up the importance of the legacy behind the name. Proctor cries out, “I have given you my soul; leave me my name!” (240).
In this short story, after the Hutchinson family gets drawn, Tessie Hutchinson is declared “winner” of the lottery. Her prize is that she is stoned to death.This lottery happens because the town doesn’t want to upset the tradition. The text states, “ ‘Well, now,’ Mr. Summers said soberly, ‘guess we better get started, get this over with so’s we can go back to work. (p. 19, lines 169-171).’ ” Mr. Summers is stated as a “round-faced, jovial man” on page 15, lines 52-53. It seems that he doesn’t enjoy the lottery because he is described as sober.
Obviously Tessie Hutchinson is more likely to stone other people is somebody else would’ve gotten the black dot paper but now she argues that the lottery is unfair because she got the paper with the black dots. Things that came in my mind one of them is Motivation. Villagers continue to kill other villagers because they are so proud about their rituals and they don’t want to go against the authority because Villagers are the one who choose it. I think they story is trying to say that you should protest against the authority when authority is wrong. It’s like a democracy.
How do you fell about being fair? In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper lee, Dill has the most feelings about being fair because when Dill saw how the men were treating Tom at the courtroom for being black Dill started to cry because he knew it was wrong and not fair for them do treat hos differently. The book To Kill a Mockingbird teaches us that fairness is important because when people do not show equality no one will ever be happy and when people tell the truth others can trust each other more. First of all when people do not show equality no one will ever be happy. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Scout asked Atticus if he was a N-word lover and Atticus was trying to explain to her that he loves everyone equally.
People just don't always sacrifice because it is easy, sacrifice is something the is given up to benefit someone else. You can see Sacrifice within the love of Romeo and Juliet and the benefit of history. In Romeo and Juliet sacrifice plays a very important role.

John Proctor, a character from The Crucible is a Rebel/Misfit Archetype. A Rebel/Misfit is defined as a character that radically rejects the values of a society and the restrictions placed on him or her. I chose to do my research project on John because Proctor is my favorite character from The Crucible and throughout the whole book he was feeling guilty for his actions but wanted to do the right thing. Proctor can also fit into the Hero Archetype for sacrificing his life to save his wife. Back in the 1690s, not going to church every Sunday was a sin and could be punishable by death.
The short stories “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and “The ones who walk away from Omelas” by Ursulak LeGuin , both are fiction. They both sacrifice each other's family members. The sacrifice helps them in many ways such as happiness. They both try and convince the readers that they are in a perfect place. The short stories both explains how perfect the place they are in is.
By using the idea of sacrifice, Authors ‘Shirley Jackson’ and ‘Ursula LeGuin’ both express how an act of sacrifice can determine the fate of another human’s life, and how one’s sacrifice can affect another person’s life in the short stories ‘The Lottery’ and ‘The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas’. The authors both use similar writing techniques, but the morals of the societies are different. In the short stories “The Lottery” and “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” you have two communities that both seem to be the perfect society in a way. “The Lottery” has an opening feel of kids playing and a big huge festival where everyone is having a good time. While In “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” shows the perfect society where everything is good and no one has any hard times.
The only way to break these spell is to make new agreements based on truth, because the truth will set us free. Gossip or “mitote” is mixed up with many conflicting messages, it’s learned and agreed with at a very young age because it’s a normal form of communication in our society. It makes us feel better to see someone else feel as badly as we do. “Misery likes company” (Ruiz 38). We are infected with and contagious to others with fear and suffering.
Who will win, what do they win? While in charge of the “lottery”, Mr. Summers doesn’t support its traditions and feels the town should end it like a few surrounding towns have recently done. To him, the black box represents death and bad traditions in the community. His community members think it 's “Bad enough to see young Joe Summers up there joking with everybody.” They fear the young people are the ones changing the traditions and ending this tradition will lead to other breakdowns in society. Mr. Summers is the one adult questioning the tradition.
They show complete disregard in the feelings of the black folks who are forced into slavery, forced into selling their loved ones and their children. They are able, as Prince says, to “make their remarks upon us aloud, without regard to our grief” (11). These fears are exactly what Linda Brent feels when she becomes pregnant. She realizes that having a child with Mr. Sands would bring more abuse from Dr. Flint to both her and her child, and when her first born, Benny is born, she explains that “I had often prayed for death; but now I did not want to die, unless my child could die too” (Jacobs 199). She would rather that her child die than live in bondage, especially under the watchful and revengeful eye of Dr. Flint.
Traditions are meant to be symbolic, as well as, sacred and are mainly used to share significance with the past-however in this small town, it is determined otherwise. In the short story, “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, it has been proven that traditions can leave one blindsided. This becomes clear when Old Man Warner thoughtlessly and mindlessly disagrees to the idea of quitting the dreadful lottery; When Tessie and Bill willingly wish to place their daughter and son-in-law in the lottery- knowing that if they had been put in the lottery, one of them would have stoned; and; When Tessie was chosen to be stoned, she suddenly became a victim and everyone (including her kids, husband and friends) was against
Tom Robinson is also affected by racism due to losing his life and freedom because of losing a case which he was accused. To show, “Tom’s dead.” Aunt Alexandra put her hands to her mouth. “They shot him,” said Atticus.” (Lee 315) and “I shut my eyes. Judge Taylor was polling the jury: “Guilty…guilty…guilty…guilty” (Lee 282). These two quote show the loss of freedom because he lost a case and was sent to jail for a crime he did not commit and also due to racism he lost his life as Aunt Alexandra states “Tom’s dead”.
