Achilles is a man without honour, a gifted warrior but one who fights for nothing. This may be his single greatest downfall. In book one of Homers The Iliad, it is evident that Achilles’ arrogance overflows to the point where he makes an irrational decision to abandon Agamemnon and the greek forces in a time of war. “Now I shall go to Phthia, since it would be much better that I return home with my beaked ships. I don't intend to stay here to pile up wealth and riches for you without honour”(The Iliad, 1, 169-171).
No mercy In the book, Night, Elie wiesel tells the story of his many months in the concentration camps. At the young age of fifteen were he saw, his fellow jews get burned alive, shot, beaten, Starved and even hung. There was so much physical pain that was caused and some of it could be fixed over time. But the one thing that can 't be fixed is the emotional damage him and every other person that was in those camps experienced.
When the prisoners were performing monotonous forced labor, the Kapos would work prisoners until they could barely stand, yet didn’t give the prisoners a single second of reprieve. According to Elie, the children of the Kapos were even more cruel and sociopathic, most of which seemed to have a disgustingly avid interest in torture, and were loathed even more so than the Kapos themselves. The children would even beat their own fathers, and were seen as more abominable than the SS
Are you currently bombarded by rules set by your parents or boss’? Imagine all the rules you currently have and then times them by ten! It might seem like it’s hard to imagine but the book Anthem by Ayn Rand takes place in a very controlling city. In the city of Anthem, they have a numerous amount of rules and controls set on the city and the people. Anthem has put multiple rules into action so that everyone is “equal” and there are “less” problems.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped… If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity.
In document A it states that “ Only the rudiments of reading and writing were taught; instruction consisted for the most part in … obedience, bodily fitness, and courage to conquer in battle.” So if Spartiates only knew the basics of writing and reading, how were they able to sign treaties, or read laws? Adding to that, Sparta banned all education from outside of the city state. This includes books, plays, treatises, and foreign teachers. Without any outside knowledge, how is Sparta supposed to learn?

When Helen was taken from Agamemnon required Achilles to fight but he just stayed at the boats. Patroclus, Achilles cousin, came to Achilles and asked if he could use Achilles armor in war to scare the Trojans. This ended badly because hector realized it wasn’t Achilles and killed Patroclus. Achilles found out and went out and killed hector. Another Hero to examine is
He forced discipline and forbid his players from criticizing each other and cursing. In 1947, Wooden did not accept an invitation for his team to play in the National Association of Intercollegiate Basketball (NAIB) National Tournament because of their policy banning
And the world is full of matches" (Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451). Kids now days just can’t stand school and this may sound like the best deal ever because the governments wants the happiness of people, but what happens when there are no doctors because there is just no background info on it, what about coding and the apps that kids are always on. Fahrenheit 451 is a war-torn society because of the attitudes and the lack of care for anything which is where the future generations are heading. We wouldn’t have any background info to progress our race at the rate it has been going at would maybe even start
After looking at the hard facts it 's time to compare the rulers to each other! Alexander had one of the biggest impacts on young Greece and current Greece. Alexander defeated the “Persians”, Egyptians, and Mesopotamians gaining land all the while (Alexander the Great).
Book Banning I think that the root problem with the book banning/burning was the level of maturity in the certain individuals affected. Both of these books were not made for children. I think the people in charge that banned Mr Vonnegurt’s book could have done better with their solution and the people at the Biloxi school came up with an adequate solution to the problem. An example is the book by Kurt Vonnegut, but they were still taught in the classroom.
