In Marcus Rediker’s Villains of All Nations, pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny are represented as being vulnerable, emotional, extraordinary women. Both being born illegitimate children, Rediker poses an understanding, empathetic treatment of these women, despite their representation of ‘liberty’ emanating from the brutality of piracy. The constant referral to Read and Bonny as female pirates indiscreetly implies that Rediker interprets their participation in piracy as delicate, which is unjust. Females and delicateness were a dominant association in the 18th century. Rather than referring to the two women simply as pirates, Rediker uses the phrase female pirates to imply that their participation on ship was neither masculine nor violent.
I see this quote as a way of implying to be more positive about a situation rather than be negative about it. Jeannette, in this part of the memoir, feels embarrassed due to the fact that her and her family is sleeping in a car that is falling apart. People are staring at them, and laughing which is not a great feeling at all. Her mom, on the other hand, has a totally different perspective on their situation. She would wave at these people like nothing was wrong; she was unfazed.
Chapter 17: This allusion is a reference to the words turbulent seas which is to being at sea, but it really means any type of chaos or argument. There is also a simile used to compare rape case to a church sermon. Chapter 18: This case is just like the Scottsboro Case where African Americans were accused in Alabama of raping white American women. This case may have been on a train but this case is accusing African Americans just like this rape case.

I agree with Ken Thompson and the vivid example he provided. Just because the opportunity is given to you, it does not mean you should take it because it is morally wrong. In the book Sara Baase describes how the word hacker is identified “The term “hacker,” to many people, means an irresponsible, destructive criminal. Hackers break into computer systems. They intentionally release computer viruses.
Anne Frank “ I see the world being slowly formed into a wilderness; i hear the approaching thunder that one day, will destroy us too. I feel the suffering of millions.

This provides a stark contrast to the main character, the captain, whose every sentence appears cold and calculated as well as the unforgiving setting. He states that he is “inured to the sight of death” (1) and comfortable with the death of another man with an “objective lack of emotion” (1). “Death” is not an ugly word to him, “procedure”
In my opinion Linton has no say in what happens to him. The story takes place during the early 1800's in England. During this period a man was considered to be master of his house. Healthcliff has a legal right to with with his son as he pleases. Anyone and everything living on his land or under his roof is considered to be his property.
The journey is grim, but profitable. Although rations were tough, my crew were trained to withstand hunger and sickness to ride with me. Even if we ran out of water, we couldn’t drink the sea, for the water was toxic of salt. The year was 1704. It was a stormy day out at sea.
She then willingly walked off the ship knowing she had to. “The Cold Equations” written by Tom Godwin illuminates one should acknowledge and be accepting to their consequences if it was deserved or
Another rogue wave crashed against the hull of the Jackdaw. With my eyes closed, I could hear multiple crewmen fall flat on their faces after tumbling out of their hammocks, sensing worried looks on their faces. I smirked. I never had trouble at sea. I was always on the ship of my fathers brig, the Jackdaw.
Throughout the poem the tone was subtle, however, a claim was still made. Because the speaker in the poem had a calm tone, it left me feeling a sense of displacement. I didn’t know whether the author chose to write this poem because it was something he was passionate about, or if it didn’t have sufficient meaning. With Hawthorne having ancestors of seamen, his poem could have been a representation of their lives. To me, this poem was quite relatable in the sense that there can be so much commotion above the water, but once you sink down, all is at peace.
